Dear Eugenia

WEEK OF July 23, 2017


Dear Eugenia: I have had the same job for the last 17 years, and now I am afraid of two things. I have been a manager for two years, and my branch is finally making money. My district manager put someone from another branch in my officem, and she has been unprofessional and treats me terribly.

I have complained to my district manager, but he and this girl get along well. She was talking to someone on the phone and asked me a question, and then told the person on the phone that she was asking one of HER employees a question. Am I just being paranoid, or is something going on?

The other thing is that back in 1986, I was ticketed for shoplifting. It’s the only thing that I have ever done wrong in my life. It was over 30 years ago, and since that time I have raised two sons, been a Cub Scout mom and PTA president, and now I have to submit to an intensive background check (to get a business license). I have asked the governor for clemency, but it was denied.

The value of things I took was less than $20, but I cannot get it expunged, sealed or pardoned, and I felt so bad about it. I have never told anyone about this, especially not at work, and if this comes out I will lose my job. But I need to pass the background check to get a license; otherwise I am afraid of losing my job. Please tell me if I will be safe. I was born on April 8, 1963, at 4:20 a.m. — Anxious Aries

Dear Anxious Aries: The area of your chart that deals with how you get along with your peers or boss, as well as how well you do, has been going through a rough patch for about two years. Although it does appear to be clearing up, another area of your chart that deals with how you view people, partners and the world around you is being exaggerated. This began last fall and will continue until late October. If you have a concern about your position or about going for your license, you are best to wait until late fall.

Without birth data for your boss or the new addition to your office, I cannot be specific regarding what they are capable of doing in terms of damaging your position. Your chart indicates that it is probably more your problem because of your inability to see things clearly right now. Please hold off making any changes or raising issues for the time being.

               **             **             **

Dear Eugenia: My husband and I are just starting divorce proceedings. We are that couple that never in a million years thought we would divorce. I can’t believe the love is gone. I feel it’s still there. I don’t know if it’s because of me or if it’s him and he thinks he let me down. My question is: Will this end in full divorce, or is the love still there for him? And if I stay, can we ever get back to the love we had in the past? I was born on Feb. 9, 1978, at 9:47 a.m., and he was born on Feb. 7, 1977. — Confused Aquarians

Dear Confused Aquarians: Your astrological comparison certainly has what it takes to go the distance, but too much may have happened (or perhaps not enough) and disillusionment set in. The problems began several years back for him, probably about seven to eight years ago, and for you about four years ago.

Relationships take constant work if you are going to build an equal and loving forever union. This has never been easy in the past, but with today’s distractions, it makes it much more difficult.

The one thing that does stand out in the comparison is emotional deception. In your chart, it falls in an area that deals with hidden matters, secrets and communication. Without his birth time, I cannot tell you where it falls in his chart.

Over the past two years, this particular aspect that joins your charts together has been going through a rough patch, and although it is clearing later this year, I believe it will be too late for the two of you. Both his chart and yours indicate anger and frustration — almost as if you have never really discussed the problems over the years and now it’s at a point of no return. I believe you lost him last fall when something made him feel like there is more to life.

               **             **             **

Dear Eugenia: My problem is financial … and my husband. Financially, what is my future? I work as a small-time government contractor. Is this a compatible vocation for me? Will this lead to a better future?

When I was a child, every feng shui expert my mother met said that I am very lucky, but after I married, they no longer said I drew good fortune. Did my marriage affect my future? My husband’s birthday is Aug. 28, 1967, at 8:20 p.m., and mine is Sept. 3, 1969, at 2:45 p.m. — Questioning Virgo

Dear Questioning Virgo: With regard to your career working within government, institutions or large corporations, your chart does show promise. However, this past year you should have been taking courses that are geared toward your advancement. This unfortunately ends mid-fall and will not be in your best interest again until 2021. At that point it looks more favorable not only to learn, but also to teach, travel and work in a field that has more to do with transportation and communication.

Your chart indicates that you indeed do land on your feet, but sometimes people born with a chart like yours don’t try as hard because things come much quicker and easier to them. This can make you view your marriage as the reason your luck has changed. If anything, it’s your unhappiness in your marriage that is making you feel this way.

Your comparison with your spouse isn’t bad — it’s just not as exciting or beneficial as you wanted it to be. He falls in an area of your chart that deals with dead ends, so it’s hard to build a future with him. You fall in an area of his chart that deals with children, socializing and creativity. If these three components aren’t incorporated into your marriage, it will be difficult to keep it afloat.
