Your Monthly Horoscope for February 2018
 by Victoria Fugit 

Full Moon in Leo on January 31st at 11º37’ -- 6:27 am MST
New Moon in Aquarius 27º 08’ February 15th – 2:05 pm MST
Aries Astrological Symbol
Aries – Aries – Your romantic life may get a boost this month, if the responsibilities at work don’t override the needs of creativity and love. With Saturn moving into your 10th house of career, you may find that you have untapped leadership abilities and long term vision. This discovery comes with greater workload and responsibility which you are fully capable of handling right now. Your 9th house of education, foreign travel or contacts and higher guidance is activated by Mars all month. Pay attention to ideas which are “foreign” or unfamiliar to you, as they could be exactly what are called for on the next leg of your journey. New, unusual or even unlikely friends may pop up this month bringing a burst of innovative thought and possible personal change. Then, just quickly as they arrived they may depart. Be open, grateful and flexible.
Taurus Astrological Symbol
Taurus – The full Moon in your 4th house along with the North Node prods you to let go of domestic or family projects you may have once committed to, but now realize that they are no longer benefiting from your participation and are dragging on your energy. Jupiter in your 7th house over the next year expands the energy of all things related to marriage and partnerships. Stay balance in these areas. Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn in the 9th may involve you in some type of new learning or possibly religious or spiritual fervor. Don’t try to convert the thinking and beliefs of others in these areas and you’ll have positive transformative results in your life. The perfect path for one is not the perfect path for all even though they generally lead to the same destination.

Gemini Astrological Sy
Gemini – Patience, compassion and consideration or frustration, temper tantrums and perhaps overwhelm are the choices likely to confront you this month in the areas of marriage and partnerships. However, channeling that energy into creating a healthier lifestyle and getting into better physical shape may be just what Jupiter (in your 6th house of health and work) and the doctor would suggest. A long standing communication difficulty with family or neighbors is at a crossroads this month and can either be resolved or become a hardened, and unlikely to end, hurt and/or frustration. Avoid legal entanglements, if possible. The best cure is prevention. If you have had any involvement in shady activity, Saturn and Pluto are likely to hand out karma.

Cancer Astrological Symbol
Cancer – Jupiter in Scorpio in your 5th house of creativity, pleasure, children and romance for the next year, calls you to a more expansive and possibly more intense exploration of what supports your pleasure and creative centers. If you are involved with children, you tend to be more protective than normal, but also more expansive and nurturing. Romance over the next year may be more serious and intense -- less playful and light. If you are a late Cancer (June 15 to 20th) unexpected or unusual work opportunities may present themselves. Although they may be adventurous or innovative, they may not be long-lasting in themselves, but more of an open door to what’s next in your career. Venus joins Neptune in your 9th house after the 11th, ramping up your already heightened intuition. If you have any inclination toward creative writing, this is a good month to get started.
Leo Astrological Sign
Leo – The Full Moon in your 1st house and the New Moon in your 7th this month, emphasizes relationship to Self and the meaning of relationship to others. You may discover that hesitancy in committing to relationship stems from early childhood conditioning, fear of not being “right” or not “being in control”. Late Leos (August 17th to 22nd) may do some spur of the moment travel after the new Moon or have opportunities to combine travel, artistic endeavors and education in unexpected ways, There is a lot of energy again this month for creative pursuits, with Mars in Sagittarius in your 5th house. The grand trine of Mars in Sagittarius, Uranus in Aries and your Sun in Leo promises some magical experiences in February. Look for them. Don’t let them pass by while you stay content in your house with the doors and windows closed.
Virgo Astrological Symbol
Virgo – Neptune is in the middle of the sign Pisces and therefore opposed to the Virgo Sun of those born September 2nd to the 17th. Add to this, Mars in the mid-degrees of Sagittarius, squaring the Virgo Sun. These two aspects combine to stir up mischief through misunderstandings, lack of clarity, low physical energy combined with periods of high energy, unwillingness to compromise and irritability – if people can misunderstand you, they will. Make sure others are clear about your meaning and intent – avoid those you don’t know well this month and stick with those you know you can trust. Negative entanglements with others now can lead to lead to feelings of discouragement and futility. You might come out of this transit feeling badly about yourself. These transits can also show a deeply spiritual dimension to life you may not have been aware of before. Just know that the road to this understanding can be full of snares and pitfalls. Pay attention, keep a low profile and you can carefully wend your way through them. A Mars transit in the 4th house can also start a new twelve month cycle of recreating yourself.

libra Astrological Symbol
Libra – The Full Moon in the 11th house and the New Moon in the 5th house suggest a slowing down of social commitments this month and putting more attention on your priorities – how, when and where you spend your time and what truly give you pleasure and joy. Jupiter in your 2nd house of finances and material manifestation for the next year often promises greater abundance and security in those areas, but can also lead to excess if you’re less than practical. Disputes with siblings or neighbors this month may end up with neither party knowing what the argument is about. If upon reflection, you discover that you don’t have a clue what you are really arguing about – don’t. Restructuring either physically, mentally or emotionally your foundations or home-base is up for you over the next two years. Take your time in discovering your true desires.
Scorpio Astrological Sign
Scorpio – Jupiter in your 1st house for the next year is calling for expansion and growth of the person you know yourself to be in the deeper layers of self. This period of expansion is supported by Saturn and Pluto in your 3rd house of beliefs about reality and habitual thought patterns that keep you on automatic pilot. Your 3rd house is ruled by Capricorn, which is in turn ruled by Saturn. Your tendency is to be more comfortable with reality as you have always perceived it and not a reality that is rapidly and irrevocably changing. Pluto in the 3rd house is slowly and irreversibly dissolving long held concepts and limiting beliefs about who you are and what you are truly capable of. With Neptune in your 5th house of love, pleasure and creativity, music, film or any of the arts will be supportive of your journey and smooth any of the rough spots out.

Sagittarius Astrological Sign
Sagittarius – Neptune in your 4th house square your Sun is slowing your physical energies and possibly creating an “Alive in Wonderland” effect on your psyche. Sort of a “I knew who I was yesterday and today I’m not so sure, but I’m sure to be someone else tomorrow”. When asking for intuition to give direction you may feel as if you have the Cheshire cat as a guide, pointing both right and left as the way to get to somewhere, nowhere or anywhere. At least February should restore some of the physical energy that has slipped away with Neptune. The best thing you have going for you right now is your sense of humor – remember it is Wonderland. The warp and weft of your life tapestry is being rewoven. Enjoy the fun house and know when you emerge, you will love the being who you have become. Over the last two years, Saturn dampened some of your sparkle, but when Neptune finishes, you will have a brighter sparkle, more whimsy and experience greater humor, compassion and joy.

Capricorn Astrological Symbol
Capricorn – No one is more surprised than you, ever practical Capricorn, when flashes of intuition start popping up and even worse when they tend to be right on. In spite of your ruler, Saturn, sitting in your 1st house of personality for the next two years, perhaps making you less than jovial, Neptune has your antennae tuned to a higher intuitional band width. The ever jovial Jupiter, in a beautiful aspect to your Sun, is in your house of friends and social networking. Jupiter in Scorpio will bring new friendships you can relate to well. They might have a more philosophical or metaphysical bent and can open doors of perception that you didn’t know were within. Get out and about, go to places you would not normally go – in other words follow your intuition and see what surprises you.

Aquarius Astrological Symbol
Aquarius – Your social life could pick up this month, with Mars in the 11th house. It favors working with groups of people toward a similar goal. The theme here is coordinating with others as an equal not subordinating your needs to those of others. The trick is finding the right group of people by putting your vision out to others to see who responds. If you have no particular project or goal in mind, then some type of team sports or physical activity with friends would work well for you now. You usually have innovative ideas percolating around in your head. Pick one that you know would require teamwork and see what kind of results you get. Jupiter in your house of career is supporting and cheering you on to expand who you are in the world. February is a good month to experiment and have fun at the same time.

Pisces Astrological Symbol
Pisces – Mars in Sagittarius is square your Sun (ruler of your 6th house of work) from the 10th house of career. This transit gives great energy to any career ambitions you may want to achieve. You do best this month on projects that you can supervise or work with your own authority. You do not easily overlook the incompetency of coworkers this month and conflict could arise if you find yourself in a position where you might have to teach, explain or correct the work of others. Jupiter in a trine to your Sun gives you a lot of confidence in your abilities. However, it’s important to pay attention and be patient with the needs and abilities of others. The mark of a good manager or leader is using people where they shine the best.

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
