Your Monthly Horoscope for June 2015
 by Victoria Fugit 

Those of you who are readers of this column know that the turmoil on the planet now is connected to the Uranus/Pluto square, which has been in effect since 2012. You also know that this is the second go around of these two planets – Uranus = the people, new, sudden unexpected change and creativity, revolution and upheaval; Pluto = power, corporations, government, hidden agendas, control, atomic energy, destruction, wealth, death, transformation and regeneration.
In 2012 many felt that there was real change coming.

As did, those of us who lived through the 60s and 70s thought in much the same way.
I’ve often asked myself “will the outcome this time be different?” I finally did the research to find out. The 60s and 70s saw a conjunction (side by side) of Uranus and Pluto in Virgo (a feminine Earth sign).

Uranus was fostering a back to the earth movement – healthy foods, living more naturally; psychedelic, earth centered drugs to raise consciousness; interest in Native American culture and spirituality, the birth of feminism, Roe v.Wade. For some it was a time of great adventure, innovation, new concepts of life, experimentation in pushing the boundaries of human experience, society and consciousness and pure ecstatic joy in the gift of life.

Side by side with Uranus, Pluto was fostering what? -- Vietnam, death , destruction of the earth with agent orange, devastation of our best and bravest either physically, mentally or spiritually, “Better living through chemistry”, assassinations of JFK, RFK and MLK, government secrecy elevated, the majority of people living the American ideal of marriage, car, mortgage and 2.5 children and trust in pensions and retirement from corporate loyalty.

As the conjunction of Uranus /Pluto waned, Uranus moved into Libra (arts, and the feminine) and was greeted by a trine from Saturn in Gemini (communications with great longevity). Long term ideological transformation was initiated and is now beginning to mature.

Pluto, on the other hand received a trine from Jupiter in Capricorn – making corporations, governments, and earth transformation (not necessarily for the better) bigger, more global with greater power and wealth to create the situation of corruption, destruction.
So here we are with the aftermath of Uranus square Pluto – where do we go from here? How will these two transformative players combine with others in future planetary line-ups? What can we expect as the energies play out globally and personally? Find out in next month’s Happenings.

In the meantime, Mercury is retrograde in Gemini until the 12th. Pay attention to and double check communications, computers and travel plans. Saturn retrogrades back into Scorpio, slowing or momentarily stopping forward actions. Have a happy Summer Solstice on the 21st at 10:38 am.

Aries Astrological Symbol
Aries – Those of you born April 4th to 10th -- big decisions about your future and your passion in life are up. Pluto is breaking up old comfort zones and the rest of the planets are cheering you on to bigger and better things. LEAP! Early Aries is feeling a pull to change, but is really tired after all the chaos of the past three years. Trust in your Self should be strong now, however, Go Slow.

Taurus Astrological Symbol
Taurus – Insights about your parents’ and even grandparents’ beliefs around money may suddenly shed clarity on your own present financial situation. Just because your family believes something, doesn’t make it so in your life. The dissatisfaction you feel about your life is just Jupiter whispering in your ear about all the “shoulds” passed down from the past. Ask yourself “what really makes me happy”
Gemini Astrological Sy
Gemini – Gemini, this is your month to shine, get out meet people and do what you do best. One caution – Neptune squares your Sun, and your ruler Mercury is retrograde until the 11th. Don’t take action on new plans, goals or contracts until after the 12th. Neptune in your house of career and how you present yourself to the world, either adds creativity and vivid imagination to your work or feelings of victimization and being used – your choice.

Cancer Astrological Symbol
Cancer – Jupiter in your house of money can bring financial windfalls or have you spending way more than necessary. July 6th through 12th birthdays are still feeling a roller coaster effect from Uranus and Pluto, but if you can let go of fear, it will be a ride that takes you where you want to go. Ask yourself, “Where do I go next to have the life I want”. Ask for what you want and be pleasantly surprised.
Leo Astrological Sign
Leo – Even though the planets are on your side this month, you may find that your creative projects take more discipline and work to manifest. Friendships may take up much of your time. Check out any health issues you may not have addressed. If travel calls answer it, and remember, don’t be so involved in details of “what’s right”, that you forget to have fun.
Virgo Astrological Symbol
Virgo – Your home or immediate environment may seem overwhelming or burdensome in some way. Let the restructuring happen, don’t resist. You still have Neptune opposing your Sun so don’t get caught in illusion or self deception. Rely on friendships to clarify reality. You may be slightly accident prone if you find you’re doing one thing and thinking of something else. Stay grounded.
libra Astrological Symbol
Libra –Turn around and look at all you’ve let go of or lost. Bless it. Now, turn facing the future and perhaps realize that something you’ve always wanted to be, do or have is ahead on your path. Travel, more education, studying on your own and friendships can bring a new perspective into how to achieve what you truly want. Deciding what that is, can be your greatest obstacle. Follow the path of least resistance.
Scorpio Astrological Sign
Scorpio – Late Scorpios (Nov. 18th through 21st), you are looking at Saturn returning to conjunct your Sun until August, causing a loss of energy or will to do. After September18th the lethargy will dissipate and your energy comes back. Finding ways to flow with this situation, rather than resist will work best for you. In September, Saturn moves into Sagittarius. Depending on your date and time of birth, this could spell delays, setbacks or difficulty in finances or it could also signal a restructuring of how you perceive money and more stability in this area.
Sagittarius Astrological Sign
Sagittarius – A momentary lapse in self confidence may cause you to underestimate your ability to succeed. You are emotionally vulnerable now, with Neptune squaring your Sun and may draw people in who try to use you. If you feel exploited, withdraw from the situation. After the 6th, Venus and Jupiter will be in a trine of your Sun to bolster your confidence and faith in your capabilities. Exercise that Sag ability to pull the rabbit out of the hat and create magic. Open to your natural zest for life and let go of those pesky negative thoughts.
Capricorn Astrological Symbol
Capricorn – Stop imagining you can change the world single-handedly. There are so many changes and unexpected circumstances close to home right now, that it is important not to take on more than is humanly possible. Rest and long walks will help balance the swirl of confusion and possible illusion that keeps you from your calm center. Rather than trying to do it all, relax and let Spirit handle the big stuff and the details.

Aquarius Astrological Symbol
Aquarius – Sun, Mercury, Mars and Uranus are in fairly good aspect to your Sun this month – get out and have some summer fun. Jupiter and Venus in opposition to your Sun may incline you to long for what you think you don’t have. Look deeply and realize it’s there, just not in the form you wanted it. Appreciation and gratitude can achieve what striving and wanting may not.

Pisces Astrological Symbol
Pisces – Neptune in Pisces will be with you for a long time. Turn its energies into creative or artistic pursuits or toward greater spiritual understanding. Don’t get trapped by self deception or rosy illusions. Friendships are there for support and caring not for manipulation. Pluto is transforming relationship now and you may find that you are becoming even more aware, intuitive and psychic than ever and can restore self confidence in others when they need a boost.

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
