Dear Eugenia

SUNDAY, JUNE 24, 2018


DEAR EUGENIA: I lost my job in February; it was my fault. I am looking very hard for another opportunity. I want this job to last for the rest of my career (eight years). I have worked in the health insurance industry and am afraid (because everyone is connected via LinkedIn) that I will be bad-mouthed and blacklisted from getting a position in that industry. I desperately need a job, and I’m not sure where I should be applying or what I should do. When do you see me landing a new job? I have sent out 20 resumes and have no job prospect yet.

You have always been spot on with all your predictions. I am looking forward to hearing from you soon. I was born March 31, 1961, at 10:55 p.m. — Aries

DEAR ARIES: It’s time to do some backtracking and some networking. Your chart indicates you should be attending industry events, seminars or connecting with anyone you got along with in your prior work experience.

With transiting Saturn moving through an area of your chart that deals with how you earn your living poorly situated to your natal Moon in an area that deals with how well you can do, it is important you learn from your mistakes and make amends if you want to get another chance.

Between now and November, you should consider picking up new skills, as well as applying for positions that are short term, to work your way back in. Start connecting with more of your colleagues through LinkedIn and break the ice.

It’s always darkest before the dawn, and yes, there is work that needs to be done on your part, but if you are willing to go through the process to turn things around, you will find success as this year ends and the new one begins.

               **             **             **

DEAR EUGENIA: I’ve had a rough year. I lost my job in June last year. I got a new job a few months later, but the pay and the working conditions are not what I was hoping for.

Now it looks like I’m getting a really good job. I would like to know whether things are finally going to change for the better.

Also, my wife and I are simply not getting along anymore. She was born at about 1:00 a.m. on Jan. 1, 1967, and I was born Oct. 17, 1969, at 4:15 p.m. — Libra

DEAR LIBRA: Yes, indeed, the tides are turning in regard to your work, position, status and reputation. As long as you work hard, you will reap the rewards. However, partnerships are another story, and can cause difficulties for you across the board if you let what’s happening at home interfere with your productivity at work. That said, if you let work consume you, your relationship at home will suffer.

The comparison with your wife is not bad but also not without problems. The problem you face is showing up more in your chart than it is in hers.

Since the end of last year, you began a transit that has caused uncertainties and questions in your personal relationship. It has set you on what I refer to as a “make it or break it” situation. This will continue until the end of the year when you will choose to stay or to leave. The best way to handle what’s going on between you is to communicate. Discuss the disconnect and how best to deal with it. I believe you have enough of a connection to make this work unless one or both of you has had or does have a desire to be with someone else.

Lay your cards on the table and be willing to go to counseling if you want to avoid the ordeal of splitting up emotionally, financially and physically.

               **             **             **

DEAR EUGENIA: I’m one of your many thousands of followers. I separated from my ex-husband seven years ago; in early 2016, we signed our divorce papers.

Now my question is, do you think love is on the horizon for me? I have been going out with a guy for almost five months, but I’m not too sure about him.

I’m thinking of going back to school and regrouping my life to find a better paying job. Is financial gain coming my way this year? I was born Dec. 4, 1968, at 5 a.m.

Thank you in advance! And God bless you!– Ms. Future Unknown

DEAR MS. FUTURE UNKNOWN: I’d venture to say you are not that attached to your current boyfriend, considering you neglected to submit his birth data. So, let’s begin with your romantic prospects this year.

The summer looks good for love. It’s apparent that someone from your past will surface, if this should be the case, tread carefully or you may end up in a similar situation as your last marriage. You match up best to partners born under the signs Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius and Aquarius.

The area of your chart that deals with expanding your knowledge, skills and self-improvement will be in a high cycle beginning late fall and will continue throughout most of next year.

Don’t be too eager to bring about change before the fall. Take the summer to see how your relationship pans out with your current love interest and to deal with the baggage you still carry from past disappointments. Moving forward in a positive manner entails letting go of the past first.
