LOVESCOPE by Eugenia Last

     ARIES (March 21-April 19): You may need to make a promise to someone if you don’t want him or her to walk away. When it comes to love, know what you want and be ready to take the next step. Procrastination will result in starting over. Size up and seize the moment.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You may know what you want, but it will take more than talking to get someone you love to make a move. Patience may be a virtue, but persuasive tactics will be what are required. Have a tempting offer in place that is just too good to turn down.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You’ll have plenty of opportunities when it comes to love but not all will be equal. Listen and observe before you make or base your decision on chemistry alone. Someone who is charming may also being exaggerating in hopes of enticing you. Beware a smooth talker.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Look for someone who shares your interests and opinions. Be practical and patient, and wait for the right person instead of falling for someone for the sake of not wanting to be alone. Good relationships take work, and starting off having fun doing things you both enjoy is preferable.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You’ll attract plenty of attention, but when it comes to making a choice, you will end up sitting on the fence. The person who sits with you is probably the one best suited and able to mirror you. Two birds of a feather will stick together.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Be careful when it comes to love. You’ll have a tendency to choose someone who is not good for you. Don’t fall into the trap of thinking you can change someone; look for the partner you don’t have to or want to change. Avoid indulgent individuals.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Love at first sight can be daunting for those close to you. Listen to the advice given, but don’t let someone else make up your mind for you when it’s time to decide whether to pursue someone who has grabbed your undivided attention.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You’ll be drawn to people who come from a different background than you, but your logic and loyalty will keep dragging you back to someone you know will fit in better with your lifestyle, friends and your family. Before you rule out someone, ask loved ones for approval.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don’t be too open when you meet someone new. Wait to find out more about his or her likes and dislikes before revealing your own. You’ll avoid ending up with someone pretending to be what you want instead of actually being that person. Play it safe.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Love will flare up as quickly as it diminishes. Look for someone offering stability and who is willing to take a wait-and-see approach to romance. In order for a relationship to stand the test of time, it has to be built on solid ground.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You’ll find love where you least expect. Getting together with colleagues or connecting with someone from your past will lead to interesting talks and shared information that will pique your interest and draw you closer to one another due to the experiences you have encountered.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Stop moving so fast when it comes to love. You will end up having a series of poor relationships if you are gullible, try to save someone from himself or herself or you believe everything someone tells you. Don’t let anyone entice you into participating in indulgent behavior.

Dear Eugenia

DEAR EUGENIA by Eugenia Last

DEAR EUGENIA: I am a Leo (born Aug. 18, 1987, 3:17 a.m.) dating another Leo (born Aug. 20, 1980) since Oct. 30, 2017. Things were great, but recently my Leo has been getting on poorly with our friends (born Sept. 19, 1979, and Feb. 14, 1990).

I realized recently that some of the behavior my Leo is exhibiting toward our friends may be deal-breakers. So, our relationship is on probation. I’m giving him an opportunity to correct things and me time to figure things out. My trust is shattered, but it may be repairable. I am an emotional mess.

I am unable to concentrate at my new job (hired Sept. 26, 2018). The emotional upheaval is affecting all aspects of my life. I feel like the ground has been pulled out from beneath me.

Can the stars offer any direction? — Lost Lioness

DEAR LOST LIONESS: I must begin by telling you I rarely see a comparison between two people like the one you have with your Leo. It’s extraordinarily high but also can fluctuate, especially when in social settings. There appears to be some emotional deception as well with regard to the people you associate with, but I believe communication can help solve this problem.

Your Leo actually compares just as well to your friends as you do astrologically, and in some regards better. Your Virgo friend’s comparison with you indicates deception and sorrow, especially where communication is concerned, which could mean the friend may be provoking your Leo’s reaction.

Your Aquarius friend comparison with your partner quite nicely but sorrow is present. However, your comparison with your Aquarius friend appears to be more superficial in nature.

This past year you and your partner have been experiencing a transit that has caused you both to overreact along with excessive behavior or being put in a position to put up with such behavior.

Since this transit has finally moved on, I believe it’s time for you and your partner to discuss what’s transpired regarding your friends and how best to deal with the situation.

Your Leo partner can be manipulative emotionally and overreact, and his chart also denotes he may attract people who are, or he may himself be, indulgent or who show signs of addiction. If this is at the root of the problem, he either needs to get help or you need to move on.

You are in a high cycle this year regarding work, how you earn your living and getting ahead you are moving into a high cycle, so don’t lose sight of your professional goals. Don’t let the uncertainty regarding both your friends and your partner override your productivity. The next year your focus should be on work, money and getting ahead so don’t blow it.

It’s time to bring this personal matter to a head, so open up the conversation and be prepared to make a decision.

               **             **             **

DEAR EUGENIA: I have a friend whose birthday is Sept. 11, 1938, and I was born Oct. 22, 1967, at 9:50 a.m. I know the age difference is great, but we are fascinated with each other. After talking to each other on the phone or meeting at a cafe, I feel so supported and elated. He has a young soul, and we share similar passions, one being, literature and writing. Are we as compatible as I think we are?– Astrid

DEAR ASTRID: Yes, your comparison is good. His chart is predominant in two major areas of your chart. One deals with communication, interests and friendships and the other status. This means that even though there is an age difference you should follow through with this relationship and enjoy the time you spend together. I believe you will both grow from this connection.

               **             **             **

DEAR EUGENIA: I met my Aquarius girlfriend (born Jan. 23, 1988, at 7:27 a.m.) the week before Halloween. From the moment we met we had a great connection and our communication has been easy.

We keep surprising the other, in a good way, with the things we have been wanting to do or the things we like. I felt a strong connection immediately and am interested to hear what you have to say about our charts.

I was born April 9, 1981, at 3:54 p.m. Thank you, Eugenia. You have been extremely helpful to me during the last several years. — Aries

DEAR ARIES: The comparison is pretty decent and has the potential to turn into a long-term commitment as long as you are both being honest about your likes and dislikes and not still in the rush of love where one or both of you is trying to please the other by agreeing to or giving the impression that you are on the same page with regard to your lifestyle dreams hopes and wishes.

That being said, the reason for the above comment is because out of all the favorable planetary connections I see in your comparison, I also see one that is subject to question. It falls in an area of her chart that deals with what she expects out of a romantic relationship and what she actually alludes to, and in your chart the way you like to live or want to and what you lead her to believe you want.

Communication is of the essence to ensure that you are on the same page. When I see a comparison this good, it is common during the initial stages that you are trying to please one another instead of being honest.

Slow down, let the relationship unfold naturally and most of all make a promise to one another to be honest about your likes and dislikes right from the beginning.

ASTRO ADVICE MONTHLY by Eugenia Last

StarScoop: Jason Bateman was born Jan. 14, 1969. The beginning of my deep appreciation for this talented Capricorn began when I first started watching “Arrested Development.” It was something about his demeanor that made him so likable in the chaotic family setting he had to struggle with and how human his character was, regardless of what transpired. He was easy to relate to and just so darn likable.

But nothing compares to his talent in his latest series — “Ozark.” I’m riveted by not only his performance, and although that’s what pulled me into the series originally, it turns out the whole cast is outstanding. There is not a weak link in this parade of talent that sets you up and takes you on a journey that is unbelievable.

So naturally, I felt the urge to take a look at Bateman’s chart. Although Jason is a Capricorn by Sun sign, and those characteristics do come out in an area of his chart that deals with how he gets along with or treats his peers, it isn’t a surprise. Neither was it unexpected to see what a well-rounded chart this talented man was born with.

It isn’t necessarily the best chart, but it does indicate he’s a very engaging and innovative thinker and that he has the potential to make as much of an impact behind the scenes as he does in front of the camera.

With Leo rising, there is no doubt he can perform and that he does so from a very passionate place with his ascendant well-positioned to his natal Moon in Sagittarius in an area of his chart that deals with entertainment and creativity.

So, what’s on the horizon for this very modest star? I think he’s going to reap high rewards for his hard work, dedication and mastery that he portrays both on and off the screen.

A change is heading his way, and greater recognition for what he has to offer will follow. With transiting Jupiter heading through the area of his chart representing entertainment, you can bet interesting opportunities will continue to unfold for this very talented man.

2019 PREDICTIONS: THE YEAR OF THE PIG

 

The Year of the Pig 2019

 

West: Jan. 1, 2019 — Dec. 31, 2019

East: Feb. 5, 2019 — Jan. 24, 2019

 

THE YEAR OF THE PIG

 

I am the goodwill ambassador

I observe, but I do not judge

I inspire innocence and faith

And the purest of heart

What I am here to manufacture

Is truth, wisdom and compassion

As the fiber and bond

That unites this great planet

against chaos and divisiveness

I AM THE PIG

 

The Year of the Pig

During a time that suggests what’s true is fake and what’s fake is true, and suggests that it’s quite all right to lie and cheat, it’s not a minute too soon to welcome in the Year of the Pig. The Pig stands for honesty, integrity and responsibility and is known for fair play and not putting on airs. His goal is to keep the peace and to seek harmony and contentment for all mankind. He has no favorites or prejudices, only truth.

The Pig isn’t interested in holding grudges, even though he will never back down when obstruction of justice prevails. He will fix the problem and move forward without judging those he has battled with in order to combat wrong doings, inequality and discrimination.

The Pig is jovial and expresses intellectual wit that encourages his popularity. Everyone wants to stand close to the Pig and share his space, success and riches, as he also loves to entertain and host those who want to contribute to and share his glory.

The Pig’s attraction is not charisma — it’s sincerity, concern and the desire to do what’s right. He has manners, class and will always be up-front. He says what he thinks, and he does what he says. There are no ulterior motives lurking behind his words.

The Pig is the underdogs’ savior, the one to rush in and make matters right. He listens and observes and offers sound suggestions and solid solutions. He is the one you want standing by your side, fighting for your rights and on your team from beginning to end.

Just remember as we head in to the Year of the Pig that he alone cannot alter the acrimony the world faces on his own. He will call out for help, unity and truth to put an end to the one-way-street mentality that prevails. The Pig stands for justice and expects everyone who joins his circle to step up and be fair. His attitude is “what’s mine is yours, and what’s yours is mine,” so be prepared to give your all if you want to reap the rewards that the Pig has to offer.
