WEEK OF OCTOBER 8, 2017
Dear Eugenia: How can I pull up daily horoscopes online from the past week? One of them was so dead-on it was scary.
The last 30 years have been horrible; I’ve been struggling to survive due to bad choices, but otherwise I’m healthy. Please tell me my future is prosperous and good. I was born on Nov. 28, 1953, at 5:45 a.m. — Sagittarius
Dear Sagittarius: Go to my contact page at www.eugenialast.com and request a specific date for past columns, and I will send you a copy.
Thirty years is a long time to endure ongoing struggles. What your chart indicates is that you do have a tendency to make poor choices, and usually it’s because you make such decisions based on emotional assumptions instead of gathering all the facts and doing what’s right or best for you.
You are letting your negative traits be your engine and ignoring all the positive qualities that can help you excel. You are a dreamer with creative genius, a wonderful sharp mind, and depth and innovative abilities, but you don’t follow through.
Your chart denotes that you do make poor financial, legal and contractual decisions because you don’t take time to think matters through, but it’s not because you were born with bad luck or an inability to do well. It’s a lack of patience to let things unfold far enough that you can actually choose wisely.
With the majority of planets in your natal chart above the horizon, it is difficult for you to plant your feet firmly on the ground. This is something you have to work at. Once mastered, you can and will make much better choices.
Better opportunities are heading your way for the duration of this year beginning in November and pretty much through all of 2018. Think, strategize and then take action.

Dear Eugenia: I was born on Feb. 2, 1994, at 3 a.m. I dated a Leo born on Aug. 19, 1987, for five months. We had a huge falling-out, and I attempted to make it clear that we would never bounce back and I would never agree to forgive and forget.
He has given me space but continues to contact me. We were so in love and things were going so well. There were a few issues here and there, but with his great communication skills, I feel like we’d discuss problems, resolve them and move on. However, this issue was so great it felt/feels impossible to overcome.
Should I give him a second chance or move on? I’ve dated many men and ultimately broken up with almost all of them. I’ve never gone back to someone, ever. Relationships are like eggs — once they’re broken, you can’t put them back together. Would we be able to fix our egg into a sunny side up one, or is this relationship over? — Aqua Gal
Dear Aqua Gal: Your Leo man falls in an area of your chart that deals with learning, communication, beliefs and lifestyle choices. The astrological comparison is probably the best you’ve ever had. However, your chart indicates that you are very fixed and you don’t easily forgive and forget. So before you let this gentle Lion back into your life, ask yourself this: “Will I forever punish him for what he did?” If the answer is yes, you are best to walk away.
The bigger problem is with you, not so much him. You will never find a perfect relationship. You, like everyone else on this planet, have flaws. If you have a man who is willing to openly discuss issues and try to fix them, you should consider that a plus. If, on the other hand, you cannot forgive, there is no way to fix the broken egg.
Your Leo has a playful, flirtatious personality. That’s what you fell in love with, but with your Scorpio ascendant and Aquarius sun sign, it’s difficult for you not to become jealous and distant when things run amok, making this the biggest problem your relationship faces. If you cannot get over what happened, move on.

Dear Eugenia: Life has disillusioned me as long as I can remember. There has never been stability in my home, family or personal life. The past is clear, but the future is looked on with great apprehension.
This has been the lowest point of my life. I am married for eight years, but the love is completely gone. His prima donna, selfish, mama’s boy personality is too much for me. I have been holding on to my marriage for our two amazing babies.
I want to know if our relationship can be saved. What is going on with my husband, who was born on Oct. 1, 1977? I was born on Nov. 7, 1982, at 4 p.m. I would like to know if there will be love in my life (from my husband or someone else)? Will there be a good career and good things to come? — Disillusioned
Dear Disillusioned: The astrological comparison between you and your husband is actually quite good physically, but when it comes to emotional issues, you are correct: He is attached to his mother. And since you have had children, he sees you as a mother, not a lover.
Your ability to communicate with each other isn’t the best, especially when it has to do with discussions that include his mother. He will always stand up for her, not you, and he will also deny that he is a mama’s boy.
This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t address the issue. Communication is your best choice if you want to alter your relationship, but it is likely you will need a marriage counselor if you want to make progress.
Your chart indicates that you are currently heading into a year of emotional ups and downs regarding home, family and relationship. You will have a tendency to overreact, so counseling will help to balance that temptation.
Your husband’s chart indicates that once the counseling begins, he will be on the defensive. But there is a chance that over time, he will grow to see the importance of making your relationship work by paying more attention to you.
If all fails to bring him around to being less self-absorbed, you will be in a highly romantic cycle for the better part of the upcoming year. This means either he will smarten up and become more affectionate, or someone else will.
