Happy Birthday: Take the initiative to make a difference. Stand up for those who are challenged to gain strong support. Don’t give in to unjust behavior or those who lack integrity.

DEAR EUGENIA by Eugenia Last

DEAR EUGENIA: My partner was born on July 19, 1971, and I was born March 13, 1984, at 6 p.m. He recently demanded a divorce and has been very upset with me regarding my anger and our problems in general. I ignored the red flags. He suggested getting me help, not him.

He recently got really sick, and he stopped drinking. I stopped using also. We are now sober. I thought it would finally work out and was briefly optimistic.

I was blindsided by his plan of action, and I said terrible things. I have nowhere to go, and I don’t want a divorce. We coexisted for a month while he figured out what to do. I again spoke the dark truth, and I made a minor jealous mistake. The situation got so messy, and it could be a game changer.

I desperately want another chance. I am putting in the work, and he has softened a fair bit. I am terrified I will lose him and that it may be too late. Is he capable of making it work? Please help me see the situation clearly. — Pisces

DEAR PISCES: The comparison between you and your Cancer partner isn’t great. Yes, I see the attraction, but deception and sorrow are present. Should you decide to get back together, it will be a repeat of the past. Problems with anger do show up, along with substance abuse problems.

Your chart indicates that this past year uncertainty regarding your future has been a major issue, and although that particular celestial influence is moving on, another is going to occur that will and should lead to changes with regard to where and how you live.

Without your husband’s time of birth, it’s difficult to be specific. However, I believe his decision to want a divorce has been coming for at least the past three years. I believe that regarding health issues he is at a turning point, which can lead to complete recovery or slipping backward. Staying together as a couple could have an impact on how his life unfolds at this point.

I see the struggle he is going through and can tell this isn’t an easy decision for him. Your relationship, although full of sorrow, also has a unique and addictive attraction that is difficult to break away from.

You both stand a better chance of survival if you take a step back and sort out your lives without living under the same roof.

               **             **             **

DEAR EUGENIA: I don’t like where I am working right now, but I can’t land a job that I can do long-term. There was a company I worked for on a project-by-project basis through a temp agency that I enjoyed, but the last time I worked for them was last year. The other jobs I have managed to land are stressful (mentally and physically).

I’m not enjoying my life. The problem is money. Wishful thinking has me fantasizing about my very own business, but I also dream about landing a good job. Age is against me and also the fact that I don’t have special skills or education. I used to enjoy working. Now I am gritting my teeth and applying for anything just for the paycheck, and it’s stressing me out. I hate the job, the people and the commute. Will things get better? I was born Dec. 4, 1965. — Sagittarius

DEAR SAGITTARIUS: Without your exact time of birth, I can only offer these suggestions based on the movement of the planets over the upcoming year without knowing exactly where and how it will influence you specifically. What I can tell you is that you are in a high cycle where opportunity is concerned, and this can play out in several different ways.

The chance to learn or apprentice for a position that you might enjoy is probably your best choice. In other words, consider what you would like to do and either take courses that will allow you to apply for such positions or look for a company that is willing to train you. Your other choice is to start your own business.

I believe you might find success in sales, working with your hands, a service job or the hospitality industry. Opportunities are present this year, but it’s up to you to initiate the changes that need to be made.

               **             **             **

DEAR EUGENIA: Does the guy I lost my virginity to love me? He says he hates me but gets mad if I talk to other guys. He lives in another state now but calls me when he’s in town and wants to see me. All his close guy friends keep in touch with me. I don’t understand him. This has been going on since we were 15 years old. His birthday is Oct. 5, 1989, and I was born Feb. 12, 1990, at 12 p.m. — Aquarius

DEAR AQUARIUS: Your Libra man experienced his first Saturn return last year, and if that didn’t push him to grow up a bit, I don’t know what will. With his natal Moon in Sagittarius, I believe he has a bachelor mentality, and this can cause plenty of uncertainty when it comes to settling down or admitting to being in love with one person.

In your case, your Saturn return is inching its way into your life, and this is signaling that you are beginning to feel the urge to settle down. You are heading into about five years of changes with transiting Uranus moving through an area of your chart that deals with your home and family environment and will favorably aspect a host of planets that fall in an area of your chart that deals with personal and business contracts, finances and health. This means you should not waste time on someone who doesn’t know what he wants; look for someone who can offer greater stability and support you in your efforts to build a good life.

Although bad boys can be fun, they also come with sorrow, heartache and misery. Emotionally, your comparison doesn’t match well; it’s the physical attraction that keeps you hoping for more. Don’t let the chemistry you have with this man blind you to what love is all about. Strong mental and emotional connections are important, along with having common interests and similar life goals. Please let this one go and start to live the life you deserve.

If someone is unreasonable, walk away and let him or her sort out the matter alone. There will be changes going on that you are unaware of on the 30th and 31st. Be careful how much information you share with someone who could use what you say against you. Protect your assets, reputation and your personal information. An emotional matter will surface on the 1st and 2nd that will require you to make a change regarding a longtime friend. Don’t let anyone take advantage of you.

LOVESCOPE by Eugenia Last

     ARIES (March 21-April 19): Finish one relationship before you begin another if you want to avoid being caught in the middle of a messy situation. Honesty is the best policy and will ensure you won’t miss out on a really good connection you have with someone who turns out to be very special.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Relationship problems will surface if you move too fast or too slow. You are best to keep a steady pace and to listen carefully to what someone you are attracted to has to say. Remembering special occasions will make a difference to the duration of a romantic relationship.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): If you are attracted to someone, speak up and share your feelings and intentions. Listen to your heart and let your emotions be your guide when it comes to love, romance and making a commitment to someone you can’t imagine not sharing your life with moving forward.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You’ll be fascinated by someone who is extremely changeable. Before you decide to share your feelings or to make a promise, consider if you can live with all the ups and downs this person will put you through. An on-again/off-again relationship will try your patience.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Your fast-paced lifestyle will attract plenty of interest. Communication should be just as important an issue as chemistry, common interests and being able to keep up with you physically. After all, if you want to rule your world, your partner will need to be of equal stature.

VIRGO (Aug 23-Sept 22): Don’t fool yourself into thinking you need to settle down with someone because you are tired of being alone. Problems with relationships will surface if you aren’t selective when choosing a long-term partner. Emotional self-deception is apparent when it comes to affairs of the heart.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): If you can’t make up your mind, it will have an adverse effect on your love life. Don’t lead someone on. If you aren’t sure about the way you feel, say so. It’s time to socialize and discover what and who you really want in your life.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Communication problems will lead to uncertainty when dealing with personal relationships. You’ll be tempted by someone very different from you, and although this may be alluring, in the end it will become taxing and tedious. Don’t be too quick to make a commitment to someone you barely know.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Get involved in events and activities that stimulate your mind, body and soul. You will encounter someone just as vibrant and in need of adventure as you. A change in the way you view relationships is likely to take you both by surprise. Share your feelings.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You’ll be tempted by someone who isn’t free and clear of a past relationship. Make your position and feelings perfectly clear. Show your interest but make no promises until the person you are attracted to has tied up his or her attachment to someone else.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): It’s full steam ahead. If someone captures your heart, step up, make your intentions known and make the first move. Romance is in a high cycle, and the outcome of your actions will change your life and the way you move forward.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don’t let deception take over. Whether it’s you who doesn’t see clearly or the person you are trying to be with, the bottom line is one of you isn’t being honest about what you want out of a relationship or how you feel. Get sound advice from a trusted friend.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Look over your options before making a choice. Emotions will be difficult to control if you don’t like what someone does or if you are faced with an unexpected expense. Partnerships will be tested if someone withholds information. 2 stars

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): A change will do you good. Get involved in an activity or event that will require physical participation. The exercise will help ease stress. Plan something special for someone you love later in the day. Personal improvements will turn out well. 4 stars

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Listen and sum up what you hear. Don’t let anger take over when you should assess what’s going on around you. Walk away if you don’t like what you see or hear. Stick to people who share your concerns. 3 stars

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Choose your words wisely. You can avoid trouble if you let charm be your vehicle to win approval and favors. Don’t let anyone take advantage of you or waste your time. A little romance will help you win someone’s heart. 3 stars

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): A creative project will keep you out of trouble. Refuse to get involved with someone who isn’t a good influence. Question those who are eager to make changes that can disrupt your long-term plans. Physical activity will ease stress. 3 stars

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Set your sights on what you want to accomplish and get to work. Making physical changes at home or to the way you live will give you a sense of accomplishment and prompt you to host a get-together. 4 stars

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don’t make changes based on hearsay. Listen and consider your options carefully. A mistake will lead to setbacks and anger. You are better off sitting tight than making a snap decision. For best results, work alone. 2 stars

DEAR EUGENIA by Eugenia Last

DEAR EUGENIA: I’m an empty nester, born Feb. 11, 1960, at 9:20 a.m. I’ve done a lot of soul-searching, therapy, self-reflection, and had my nose to the grindstone growing my own successful business and feel very proud of my accomplishments, especially given the difficult circumstances of my brief marriage. I have had several men interested in me the past couple of years, but I wasn’t ready, and they weren’t right for me.

Things have been on an upswing since early November when I attended my high school reunion in my hometown. It was so affirming reconnecting with friends. It reminded me I’m a fun and social person. I am now aware of the deficit in my neglected social life.

I feel ready to put myself out there. I’ve started to go to church again. I know I want a forthright, kind and gentle man. I’m not getting distracted by the bad boys or guys carrying emotional baggage. I want a steady guy; I’ve sworn off Leo men, as my five exes were Leos, and decided no Libras, Pisces or Scorpios.

Where might I meet a good, solid, truthful, kind, funny gent? I’m not into bars, substance abusers or the financially challenged. I want to travel and enjoy life and find a man who is as good for me as I am for him. — Aquarius

DEAR AQUARIUS: You are right that Leo, Libra, Scorpio and Pisces aren’t the best signs for you, but don’t rule them out based on sun sign. Always have an astrological comparison cast before you give your heart away. You were born with the planet Neptune in an area of your chart that deals with relationships, so you attract men who can be emotionally challenging.

With your natal Venus in the sign Capricorn at the top of your chart, that is probably a good sign to start with. Also, this Venus placement indicates that attending trade shows and industry events can be a good place to start looking for Mr. Right.

With transiting Jupiter heading through the constellation Sagittarius, and that being where your natal Jupiter happens to be located in your chart, taking courses, traveling and online dating can also lead to someone special.

You may be an Aquarius by sun sign, but your chart has strong Leo, Capricorn and Pisces influences. Best sun signs for you are Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn.

               **             **             **

DEAR EUGENIA: I have been in a 12-year relationship with a man I love. Lots of things have happened during our courtship, and I’m now at a crossroads. We became engaged in 2010. We set a date and as time went on, he refused to talk about the plans for the wedding. I removed the ring after feeling like he wasn’t going to meet me at the altar. We broke up for a year then resumed our relationship. We each had our own place, but we lived together most of the time.

Four years ago, he moved three hours away for work, and although this put a strain on our relationship, we made the best of it. He signed a two-year contract planning to move back when finished, but before the contracted ended, he told me he was made an offer he couldn’t refuse, so he signed on as a permanent employee. I was very unhappy but supported the choice.

I never wanted a long-distant relationship, but I was willing to give it a try. A few months ago, he purchased a home in the state where he works, so I know he has no intention of returning. The subject of marriage is rarely discussed and when I have mentioned it, we usually end up in a bad place.

I have been loyal to him. However, I stopped having sexual intimacy with him. This has become a real sore spot for us because he believes I’m withholding sex to get him to marry me. My reason is because he stopped making me feel we were in a relationship that would grow. So, we’ve been in a sexless relationship for the last two years.

What do you see for us, Eugenia? His birthdate is Dec. 23, 1965, at 2:27 p.m., and mine is Jan. 24, 1961, at 5:20 a.m. I recently met a man born Feb. 4, 1955, time unknown. We’ve exchanged numbers and talk two to three times a week, but his conversation gives me the impression he’s controlling, and I certainly don’t want that in my life.

Is there someone out there for me, or should I continue to stick it out with the man I love and invested years with?– Lonely, Confused and Wondering

DEAR LONELY, CONFUSED AND WONDERING:Let me begin with your Capricorn. I wish I could say you have a fabulous comparison, but it is lacking, and to make matters worse, emotional deception and sorrow are prevalent. Although I see the draw you have to him, I feel you’ve invested too much time in someone who has commitment issues. Your Aquarius man isn’t your best bet either. Although he can be charming, the comparison isn’t great.

Your chart indicates you want to settle down. You are going through your second Saturn return, and it’s hitting your chart in an area that deals with relationships. What this means is that you are going through a period of “make it or break it” when it comes to love.

Should you decide to move on, there is a good chance you will find someone who interests you, and once you do, your Capricorn will probably try to come back into your life. If and when this happens, depending on your willingness to move on, please do not go back. Yes, you invested a lot of time, but in the end, you’ll discover he really isn’t right for you.

I’m not saying Capricorn is a bad sign for you, just not this Capricorn. You can also consider a Taurus, Cancer Scorpio or Pisces. Next time have an astrological comparison cast first.

               **             **             **

DEAR EUGENIA: I send out a birthday horoscope to my online friends every morning. I think you just took over the horoscope column in my local paper, as it is titled “The Last Word in Astrology.” Can you tell me what Birthday Baby means? Is it for children only, or does that relate to an adult too? And since I’m writing, can you help me with my life? It seems to be stalled. I was born Oct. 7, 1953, at midnight. — Sharon

DEAR SHARON: Birthday Baby is for a baby born on the day and year the caption is written. However, at the top of my column there is a Happy Birthday section that is for anyone born on that day, and it represents an overview for the upcoming year as well as lucky numbers for the year.

With regard to your life being stalled, you are experiencing a Saturn transit that can cause you to evaluate your life. Sometimes it’s a little depressing because it makes you look at the past. On the positive side, Saturn adds discipline and determination, therefore it’s the perfect time to make changes, go on a diet or join a group, take a course or anything that will spice things up a bit.

This past year, you should have been considering what you’ve done up to this point in your life and what you have yet to do. The upcoming year, you should be taking charge and making the changes you want to make or at least start heading in that direction. Thank you for reading my work.
