Your Monthly Horoscope for January 2015
 by Victoria Fugit 

Happy 2015 to all – It would appear that, as the poet says, “if you can keep your head about you, when all around you are losing theirs and blaming it on you” you will have a much happier and productive year than last. 2014 was sort of a warm-up, in the bullpen year – you knew or began to know what you wanted to do, but couldn’t figure out exactly how to do it or get enough control over your energies to hit your target. The Uranus Pluto square of the past two years has been creating change and transformation.
All astrological aspects are simply energy and we always have free will as to how we use that energy.
The positive effects of this square are more easily seen on personal levels. In some, the pressure of the Uranus Pluto square may manifest as internal chaos and blaming others for the discomfort and confusion they may be feeling or for disrupting what is perceived as “the way things should be”. For others however, the energy of this square is manifesting as a deeper compassion and understanding of themselves and others -- a discovery and release of old destructive patterns within and a change or letting go of relationships which no longer fit with those discoveries and changes. If we look, even consensus reality is slightly shifting and in the next three years, we can expect realities, perspectives and priorities to shift even more.
We are all performing our parts in this planetary play according to the energies in our individual charts. However, since we are dealing with energy, how we use it is completely up to us.
Our charts can be a gateway into clearing the judgments and limitations we put on ourselves to discover our potentials, and give us the insight to free us of old patterns and open up new possibilities for the energies we were born with to create our possible futures. Most of us unconsciously create a future predetermined by consensus reality – if that‘s not working so well, change it. Write a new part for yourself in this great planetary play. Try something new over the next three years – surprise yourself. The “Force” is with you.

Aries Astrological Symbol
Aries – You’re feeling the Uranus Pluto square pushing you to take action, but the timing may be premature. If you act impulsively the results may be short lived. Opportunities are coming which will make action easier and bring better results.

Taurus Astrological Symbol
Taurus – Mercury, Venus and Mars in Aquarius and the Sun after the 20th of January and may slow your momentum a bit this month. Take time to make sure you are asking for what you really want. Uranus in the 12th house continues to uncover childhood conditioning that you have outgrown and can now release.
Gemini Astrological Sy
Gemini – Listen to your intuition and don’t try to manipulate it to sound like what you want to hear. It may suggest something that seems completely off-base but deep down you know it’s right. What others think is not as important being comfortable within your self. New opportunities and expansion of your foundations can be the result.
Cancer Astrological Symbol Cancer– Partners may be touchy or domineering and your naturally empathic feathers may get ruffled. Avoid any legal actions this month; they will go better after March. You’re almost ready to take new directions and make your shell more comfortable.
Leo Astrological Sign Leo – With joyful, expansive Jupiter in your sun sign, your optimism is contagious. Saturn will move into Sagittarius, trine your sun and strengthen creative self-expression. Make more time for play and discovery of new talents.
Virgo Astrological Symbol Virgo – Watch your health this month and don’t let your nerves get stressed. Remember your self-talk eventually becomes your reality, so talk to yourself about what you desire not what you want to avoid. Pluto in your 5th house may transform your relationship with either children, creativity or both.
libra Astrological Symbol Libra – Partnerships are still somewhat erratic and the final changes in home or foundations are not yet complete. Relationships have been difficult for you the last two years, but you are stronger now and gaining new perspectives on what is most important to you. If something or someone doesn’t feel right, let go. New love and opportunities are coming.
Scorpio Astrological Sign Scorpio – Saturn moves out of Scorpio this month and you will feel as if an emotional and mental burden has been lifted. It has given you many opportunities to heal obstructive patterns and will be back in your sign June through September for a final house cleaning. Enjoy the freedom you have won from the structures and beliefs which limited you full creative expression.
Sagittarius Astrological Sign Sagittarius – Saturn moving into your sign this month will put your focus on the small details of daily life. Although you prefer to see the big picture this discipline of focusing on details will give you a stronger and broader foundation for your future plans. By 2017, you will resume taking bold steps to manifest your vision from a firm foundation and with greater confidence.
Capricorn Astrological Symbol
Capricorn – Pluto continues moving through your sign bringing slow but sure transformation and regeneration. With Saturn moving into your 12th house you also have an opportunity to clear out the past of the debris of unresolved issues. They say that Cappies get younger and funnier as they age, these two aspects definitely support that process. Funnier maybe comes later.
Aquarius Astrological Symbol
Aquarius – With Mercury, Venus and Mars in Aquarius in January your dynamic pace continues. By the 22nd however, you may slow down to reconsider plans and actions when Mercury goes retrograde. Your ruler, Uranus, continues sending the energies of innovative ideas, perceptions and bold actions to you, while Saturn will stabilize and organize them. Does the part you’ve written for yourself include manifesting innovation and bold action or do you perhaps have some rewriting to do?

Pisces Astrological Symbol
Pisces – By January you will probably have embarked on a new path which requires more discipline and hard work. Although this combination is not your favorite cup of tea, the stability you find in it will bring greater self confidence and self assurance as well as the ability to express the power of who you truly are. With your ruler Neptune in Pisces, make sure that what you ask for is truly what you want, then go for it.

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
