Your Monthly Horoscope for March 2015
 by Victoria Fugit 

The following is meant only to give you a heads-up about possibilities for the US over the next year. Aspects for individuals can and do suggest a much brighter outlook, even when placed in the context of what we as a country may experience.

The destructive yet transformational power of Uranus/Pluto square continues to build through March 16, 2015, when the last of seven exact aspects occurs. The last weeks of this transit will see Uranus (innovations, sudden turns, rebellion, independence, invention, surprises, liberation, disruption, awakening) being strengthened by a conjunction with Mars (also squaring Pluto) and a trine from Jupiter, from roughly March 8 through March 12. This suggests some very dramatic and potentially violent events and a possible intensification of the outrageous actions we been see in the news every day. This could also exacerbate extreme weather events.

When Uranus was discovered, on March 13, 1781, revolutions were underway in both France and America. Uranus sets us free when we’ve become too rigid or structured. While its influence is disruptive, crises tend to sharpen our focus, makes us feel more alive. Uranus can remind us of what we really want, not what we’ve been conditioned to think we want.
The intensity of the profound power struggles (even on personal and interpersonal levels, depending on your natal chart) that are the signature of the Uranus/Pluto square, will begin to dissipate after March 2015, with a brief flare-up in January and February 2016 when these two planets move within one degree of an exact square for the final time. The greatest impact of this historical aspect is felt through mid-March.

In the US chart both Uranus and Pluto are now in hard aspect to the US Saturn (14Libra48). The Pluto square to US Saturn was exact on February 22, while the Uranus opposition will continue to increase in strength through March 8, suggesting unexpected, upsetting, and transformative events. The Pluto square returns from mid-April through mid-June and late November through late December 2015.

With these aspects to the US Saturn and the US Sun through most of 2015, any real relief from this historical confrontation seems unlikely until early in 2016 and we will still be seeing the fallout from these March aspects well into 2020. March seems to be a turning point in history.

Aries Astrological Symbol
Aries – Romance may promise more than it delivers this month. Even though your native charm draws others to you, your quixotic outbursts may outweigh the charm. It’s best to be forthright this month or secrets may come out when least expected in April. Things will get better if you stay true to yourself.

Taurus Astrological Symbol
Taurus – Venus moves into Taurus later in the month and begins to light up your natural charisma. Mercury conjunct Neptune may create confusion in communication with friends and although Jupiter still has you longing for what you do not yet have, Pluto keeps you on task and guides you toward your goals. Stay flexible when the unexpected tilts your plans sideways. If you release the “way it should be”, it will come out just fine.
Gemini Astrological Sy
Gemini – Stay away this month from legal entanglements, your adversary would seem to have more power. Jupiter gives your energy a boost, while Saturn slows you down and demands more self discipline. Saturn opposing and Neptune squaring early Gemini makes it hard to think clearly, unless you put your creative energies to good use.

Cancer Astrological Symbol Cancer – Partnerships, friendships and even children are demanding a change in your perspective of them. Accept loved ones for who they are, not who you thought or wished them to be, and bless them with freedom. What is yours will remain and the rest is a burden you no longer need. Jupiter assures your financial situation is not as bad as you thought.
Leo Astrological Sign Leo –Jupiter still smiles on you and gives you that extra “something”. Uranus propels you into new ideals and insights about yourself and Saturn is stabilizing your foundations, whether literally in home renovations or figuratively within the understanding of yourself. Work on being more sociable and sharing those creative juices. That will benefit everyone.
Virgo Astrological Symbol Virgo – Don’t let yourself wallow in a little bit of pessimism or cynicism and or delusion or confusion. Use these energies to immerse yourself in all those creative energies you have been denying. Use Saturn for the self-discipline to start that book or the creative imagination inherent in Mercury (your ruler)/Neptune conjunct to start any other project you were afraid to tackle. You can do it.
libra Astrological Symbol Libra –Those of you born in the middle of the sign Libra are still being tossed around, with the comforts of home or partnership just beyond reach. What lessons have you learned the last three years? Can you count yourself bigger, more compassionate and loving than you were? If so, by summer you will feel a new energy lifting you up. By April, you should have a clearer picture of what is true for you.
Scorpio Astrological Sign Scorpio – Saturn moving into your money house and Neptune in the house of pleasure, creativity and gambling cautions against taking chances on things that sound too good to be true. On the other hand, if you are involved in creative endeavors such as music or other arts, now is the time to create the structure you need. Don’t let Pluto push you into power plays at work.
Sagittarius Astrological Sign Sagittarius – Even flights of fancy require hard work to get off the ground. This month brings so many good ideas, inspiration and positive goals, that you don’t seem to have time to take care of yourself and your responsibilities. Slow down, get your priorities clear and stay on course, or your wings may not be strong enough to actually fly. Don’t work hard, work smart and results will appear as if by magic.
Capricorn Astrological Symbol
Capricorn – If you’re still holding on for dear life to something or are trying to get back to “the way things were” STOP! Let go. The universe is trying to give you something much better than you can imagine, honest. Go with the flow of the river and be surprised at how pleasant life can be if you don’t try to control. Just orchestrate. Don’t try to play all the instruments, yourself. The more loving and compassionate you are toward yourself, the more others support you.

Aquarius Astrological Symbol
Aquarius – You’ll never get what you want unless you ask --- oops! First you have to know what you want. You may have been asking for what you thought you were supposed to want. Look in a dark corner of yourself. Find that piece put away for safekeeping. Bring it out dust it off and become re-acquainted. There are parts of you wanting adventure, surprises and change.

Pisces Astrological Symbol
Pisces – Deep changes in your beliefs around what is real for you are making you a little uncomfortable right now. On the surface, life is going as well as you can expect, but perhaps life is expecting more of you. Yes it’s been difficult financially since last fall, but Jupiter trine Uranus from your house of health/work to your house of material manifestation is expecting miracles through some sort of sudden understanding and experience of what you are capable of and who you really are.

About Victoria: The passion I have for Astrology began when I was twenty-four. I had been traveling in Europe for months and was becoming more and more curious about the letters my mom was sending me. They were waiting for me in each city or town I went to and it was as if she had a spy following me. She seemed to know my every move. Then she started to give me advice about what was coming up and what to watch out for. Coming home, I was horrified to learn that both she and my dad (LT. Colonel in the Air Force) were involved in Astrology. I asked them how two well-educated and intelligent people could possibly believe a superstitious myth that was so lacking in any proof of its claims. My dad said he had no belief in it. It worked, so he used it, much like electricity – we don’t believe in it, don’t know exactly how it works, but are happy to turn on the lights with it.

So I set out to prove that they were deluded. After three years of study in San Francisco and taking a correspondence course from a school in England, I apologized.
Astrology has been part of my life ever since and has led to my involvement with researchers and teachers in the human potential movement, such as Jean Houston (Institute for Mind Research), Werner Erhardt (EST), Elmer Green (Duke University), Joe Kamiya (early researcher in bio-feedback), Swami Rama (Himalayan Institute) and others.

Sun sign astrology obviously doesn’t give the depth of knowledge available in a full reading. Each chart is unique, like snowflakes. But it’s fun and entertaining. Hope you get both from this column. You can get in touch with Victoria at 435-259-9417 or
