THE LAST WORD IN ASTROLOGY

CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Rihanna, 30; Brian Littrell, 43; Willie Garson, 54; Sidney Poitier, 91.

Happy Birthday: Expect to feel pressured by what others do and say. Mellow out and refuse to get caught in someone else’s drama. Focus on what you want and the best way to help others, not the demands being put on you. Open a new chapter and take advantage of your knowledge, skills and experience, and you will excel without jeopardizing your integrity. Your numbers are 1, 14, 22, 28, 34, 39, 47.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Change will be difficult to avoid, not because of what others say or do, but because of your tendency to react instantaneously when faced with opposition or challenges. Make a point to think before you react. 3 stars

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don’t let your emotions take over or push you to make sudden decisions or changes in your life that you may later regret. Moderation and sticking to what’s worked in the past will bring better results. 3 stars

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Change will not be as easy as you hope. A change of heart will take place due to inside information. Avoid a scuffle with someone who uses false information or brings up something you did a long time ago. Own up and move on. 4 stars

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t fold under pressure or allow someone you are in a partnership with to put demands on you. It’s important to do your own thing and to follow through with the plans that fit best with the goals you want to achieve. 2 stars

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Weigh the ups and downs of a contract or deal you want to pursue. It’s best to look at the fine print and to offer constructive criticism in any business deal. Sharing what you have to offer will make a difference. 2 stars

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You can bring about change, but before you dive in, make sure you have all your facts correct and your plans laid out in detail. Don’t expect smooth sailing, especially if you have to deal with others. Emotional manipulation is apparent. 5 stars

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Dissect a situation before you decide whether to get involved. If someone pressures you, it’s a sure sign to back away and pursue your own interests. Someone from your past will prompt you to reconnect. 2 stars

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): A change will do you good. Look for a new position or find a way to put your skills to better use. Whether at home or at work, being frugal and using your common sense will encourage you to excel. 4 stars

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Your persuasive and informative manner will help you get your way. Offering personal insight into situations will encourage others to step up and support your efforts. Keep the peace if someone opposes you. Intelligence will trump anger. 3 stars

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You may know what’s best for you and your family, but don’t think that will stop someone from trying to interfere. Be careful not to offer personal information that could be used against you. Keep your plans a secret. 5 stars

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don’t speculate when accuracy will be essential. Walk away from unpredictable people and situations. Make your own opportunities instead of waiting for someone else to come through on a promise made long ago. Trust in yourself instead. 2 stars

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don’t give up hope if someone is negative or criticizes you. Carry on and bring about the changes that will make you happy. For now, it’s best to ignore what others do and focus instead on what’s most important to you. 4 stars

Communication is your best bet on the 19th and 20th when dealing with personal or business partnerships. Discuss plans that will broaden your horizons and expand your skills and talents. Your ability to be articulate on the 21st and 22nd will help you convince others to aid you in reaching creative goals that require assistance.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You can be receptive to what others do or think on the 18th, but don’t feel the need to follow the crowd. Refrain from indulgent behavior or taking on something you will regret. A change in the way you move forward on the 19th and 20th will affect the way you handle your money. Make decisions based on what you know you can afford, not based on money you hope to receive. Be careful on the 21st and 22nd when discussing personal matters.

Someone will take advantage of you if you are overly generous or too open about your finances.

Dear Eugenia

WEEK OF FEBRUARY 18, 2018

DEAR EUGENIA 

Dear Eugenia: I moved 15 months ago with my husband and daughter because we all wanted to live where the climate was warmer, the vibe positive and with the hopes of change and career opportunities.

I work for a huge sector of the government and transferred into the same position I held back home. I am currently being pushed out by a female born March 20, 1959, who is in management. She has been known to push people out of their jobs.

Because I’m resistant to keeping this pattern of her known abuses quiet, she has her sights set on me. I have so much gratitude to be blessed with this job that I have trained and worked hard to learn going on 10 years now. I have reported her to threat assessment and now she has a permanent record (finally).

I work with two Aries women and a Libra male. They all have witnessed our boss using them to conspire with her to help get people out of her department (mobbing).

Well I, being a Libra born on Sept. 30, 1965, at 1:26 a.m., don’t settle for this emotional unjust treatment, nor do I respect anybody who manipulates other people. I have been documenting her actions and have enough to pursue a claim against her behavior.

My employer matters to me, but it sure seems like they hire people who don’t even have the necessary skills to perform. My problem is the boss has no formal education to run a department or program, and it is hurting my employer by keeping this woman in this position. She can’t seem to maintain an even flow. Everything is micromanaged. She has no desire to improve or grow up but will stick it out till she retires. — Charlie Brown

Dear Charlie Brown: With “#MeToo” being front and center, it is the perfect time to fight for what’s right, so kudos to you for taking a stance. Your boss’s natal chart does indicate emotional manipulation and deceptive tendencies. However, often people with such traits also possess a natal chart that helps them land on their feet.

Your Pisces boss is heading into her second Saturn return, so I’d venture to say you do have a shot at ousting her from her position or at least having the powers that be start watching her closely. Let me, however, point out that her chart also indicates that she is capable of withholding or twisting the truth in extremely persuasive ways this year, so it will be necessary to document what transpires.

Don’t be hard on your peers. Many people are fearful of losing their job, income and lifestyle and do not like to ruffle feathers because of it. They are known as followers, not leaders. Follow through, hold your head high and show diplomacy, leadership and compassion for both your boss and those you work alongside.

The area of your chart that deals with how you earn your living and how you excel will be dependent on your ability to communicate graciously and without spite, and if that leads to a position elsewhere, it’s the company’s loss. Your chart indicates that no matter what the outcome, 2019 will be better. However, 2018 will require an even temperament, mindfulness and proper conduct on your part for the betterment of everyone around you.

               **             **             **

Dear Eugenia: What do you mean when you say, “accept last-minute changes”? Can you elaborate a little on this Libra horoscope: “LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): To avoid letting your home be disrupted, rely on what you know, not what you hear. Accept last-minute changes without making a fuss. The less you complain, the easier it will be to move forward.” What do you mean by “letting my home be disrupted”? What do you mean when you say “the less I complain”? Do you mean changes in my home? –- Libra

Dear Libra: A daily horoscope and sun sign astrology is entertainment, and although there is some truth to each caption, a lack of understanding of the subject may arise when people read only the sign they were born under.

For years I have been trying to bridge the gap between sun sign astrology and the real deal. Astrology is a mathematical science and an interpretive art. It is the art of timing. If you have followed my work, you will realize that I encourage people to read all 12 signs and to learn how to apply them to the segment that each sign represents in a person’s natal chart. That way you will get 12 times the information out of the column and a much better inkling of how best to use the information to proceed.

The caption you mention does mean changes at home and how best to handle them if you have the sign Libra fall in the fourth house, which represents your home, family etc. However, you happen to have the sign Libra in an area of your chart that deals with communication, travel and getting along with friends, relatives and others. Therefore, this caption will apply to disruptions with friends, siblings, neighbors, in-laws, travel, dealing with authority figures, etc.

I offer a service on my website (www.eugenialast.com) called Daily Timing, which breaks down a natal chart to enable each individual to know what sign to apply to the different segments of life: health, work, money, home, relationships, success, legalities, travel, children and so on and so forth. It’s my goal to slowly but surely teach all my readers to use this wonderful, informative subject properly so they too can benefit from the art of timing.

               **             **             **

Dear Eugenia: I am getting ready for retirement and I have a dilemma. My daughter (born on Oct. 26, 1971, at 5 p.m.) and grandson (born on May 7, 2010) live with me so that we can help each other out financially. We get along for the most part, but I have been single for almost 20 years, and I enjoy living alone and having space to myself. My daughter says there is no way she can live on her own with very little support from my grandson’s father. She is dating someone, but taking it slow because he is divorced with two teenagers.

I would like to have my space back so I can live the life I used to live before we moved in together. I have gentlemen friends who like to visit, but they stay away because they feel they are intruding on my daughter and grandson. I feel my life has been put on hold for the last six years. Do you see my free, loving lifestyle coming back to me, or will I have to stay with my family until the end? I was born on Dec. 8, 1953, at 4:45 pm. — Waiting

Dear Waiting: You have choices, and so do the gentlemen who enjoy your company. Your daughter also has to be made aware of the inconvenience she is putting on you.

Life is simple; it’s people who make it complex. Communication, scheduling time and making the most of whatever situation you are in is a good place to start. Compromise, sharing and lovingly trying to accommodate one another more will build a strong relationship between you and your daughter.

Work on developing a plan that will help you both reach your life goals without hurting one another. Your chart denotes that in 2019, with retirement looming, you will be happy for the extra cash your daughter contributes, as Saturn moves into an area of your chart that suggests changes and limitations regarding what you can afford.

Your daughter is in a higher cycle when it comes to love and romance as well as commitment this year, so whether the man she is currently seeing or someone new comes along, her life does appear to be changing. Being shafted by her son’s deadbeat dad wasn’t something she planned.

Patience and working together to allow both of you the freedom and support you need will make a difference.

LOVESCOPE 

ARIES (March 21-April 19): An attraction to someone you are unsure about is a red flag. Look for signs that uncover a hidden agenda, negativity, control or abuse. Don’t be taken in by someone’s charm. Find out what lurks beneath before you let someone waltz into your life and capture your heart.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You’ll be in need of a hug and ready to open your heart to someone who shows compassion, empathy and kindness toward you. The comfort you feel should be recognition that it’s time to embark on a relationship that is based on equality and give-and-take.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Arguing all the time isn’t a sign of love; it’s a sign of entrapment. Look at the motives behind a relationship before you decide that this is as good as it gets. Don’t sell yourself short or settle for less than what you deserve.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Open the door to your heart and let love in. Participate in activities, and romantic opportunities will surge. A serious long-term relationship is within reach if you let down your guard and trust in your ability to intuitively pick someone special to stand by your side.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You’ll have a change of heart, adding to your confusion and uncertainty about love and relationships. If something doesn’t seem right, don’t hesitate to opt for friendship and keep intimacy at arm’s length until you know what and whom you want to share your life with.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You’ll be drawn to someone who lives up to your expectations in most ways, but temper will be an issue. Before you decide to partner with someone who appears to be spectacular in so many ways, consider his or her dark side.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): A change in your personality will encourage you to stand up to any partner who is controlling. Expect to have a change of heart if you are tired of not getting your way. Freedom of speech, actions and maintaining equality will take precedence over being taken care of.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Saddle up and get ready to ride down the road to romance. Love is in the stars, and a unique and unusual relationship will take you by surprise. Give in to chemistry and let the sparks fly. Passion is highlighted, and good vibes will verify that you’ve found someone special.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Tread carefully when it comes to relationships. Someone you meet will not be whom he or she portrays. Don’t jump in and make a commitment that will leave you in a vulnerable position. Deception and disillusionment will lead to disappointment. Walk away from possessive or abusive behavior.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Someone from your past will come to mind. Attend a reunion or reconnect and see what happens. Being with someone you have history with will add to your stability. A promise can be made and plans to move forward put into play. Romance will change your life.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You or someone you are close to will have a change of heart. Before you ruin a good thing, protect what you have and try to get to the bottom of what might have gone wrong. A lack of trying or taking one another for granted is the culprit.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Put your heart on the line and speak out about the way you feel and what your intentions are. It’s time to move forward personally and to take a step toward making a commitment. When it comes to love and romance, if you snooze you lose.

FEBRUARY 2018

ASTRO ADVICE MONTHLY 

StarScoop: British actor Damian Lewis, born on Feb. 11, 1971, has quite the roster of achievements in the entertainment world, but the character he plays in “Billions,” Bobby Axelrod, is what captured my attention.

Turns out, he’s quite the guy off-camera as well. Smart, sensitive and steady are a few of his stellar qualities. To top it off, he’s married to the talented Helen McCrory, another one of Britain’s entertainment treasures. Polar opposites, well-suited but not the match you’d expect, Lewis and McCrory are clever enough to know that relationships take work and there is no room for jealousy when you live under a media microscope.

With transiting Jupiter moving through Scorpio (another fixed sign), they will both be facing a transit that will call for restraint, moderation and patience. They will both be so busy that they’ll have to be tolerant of long hours, travel and time apart. Apparently it’s something they have faced since day one, when they fell in love playing opposite each other in “Five Gold Rings” — a live production that turned out better for both personally than it did professionally.

I don’t know about you, but I’d sure like to see the two of them on the big screen in the not-too-distant future.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Formulate plans, make sure they are realistic and start the process of turning your dream into something tangible. Your energy and enthusiasm will lead to opportunity and rewards.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Keep your life and your relationships simple; focus on moderation and getting ahead financially. Don’t pay for someone else’s mistakes or let anyone take advantage of you.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Keep your story straight and focus on achievement. Past problems will surface and should be put to rest quickly. Don’t let an emotional incident interfere with your professional goals.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Personal growth and awareness should be your target. Dig deep and you’ll discover how to make your life better. Expand your vision and be more tolerant of others.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Expressing how you feel about money matters, settlements and contracts that need to be adjusted will help you come to a workable agreement. Cut your losses and move on.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Do your own thing and handle your affairs personally. Anger solves nothing, but doing what you can to stabilize a situation will help you achieve peace of mind.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Travel to unfamiliar places and aspire to be more innovative. You can make new connections and positive changes as long as you avoid going over budget, indulgence and overreacting.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Look for a creative outlet to take your mind off any controversy you face. Listen, but don’t let anyone sway you to do things that don’t suit you.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Take care of your health through proper diet and fitness, and put more effort into important relationships. How you respond to others will influence how much you accomplish.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Use the process of elimination when trying to make a decision. Don’t follow the crowd or expect things to turn out without your undivided attention.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Size down or find a way to cut back. Moderation will be necessary mentally, emotionally, physically and financially if you want to maintain your current standard of living.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Keeping secrets will help initially, but when the truth comes out you will regret past mistakes and the loss of those you blamed. Make amends and move forward.

East Meets West

The Year of the Dog 2018

 

West: Jan. 1, 2018 – Dec. 31, 2018

East: Feb. 16, 2018 – Feb. 4, 2019

 

THE YEAR OF THE DOG

 

Loyalty is what I stand for and respect

Chaos and division threatens my basic character

Watching and waiting for the right moment

To calm the confusion and fiery rhetoric

My goal is to maintain law and order

To fight for unity, equality and peace

Offering unconditional love and compassion

For those from all walks of life

I am the companion that will never let you down

I AM THE DOG

 

The Year of the Dog

The Year of the Dog will give way to greater anxiety and tension based on observation and mounting worry that resonates around the globe. Given the magnitude of the current political scene, the Earth Dog is a good candidate to help calm the existing absurdity and help bring some equanimity to a world gone mad.

 

United States Outlook

The United States’ outlook during the Year of the Dog indicates a cooling off between this great nation and other nations around the world. The need to face karma with regard to racism and violence will become prevalent. The growth that is anticipated will be stifled due to poor management and impatience when patience is required. Freedom and legal matters will come to the forefront, giving way to a dose of reality that leads to positive change. Adversities will surface from a number of sources opposing plans that are not globally friendly.

With transiting Pluto making its solar return, it will help stir the pot for those wanting to rewrite the laws and cause divisiveness. However, with all this being said, the chart of the United States of America also indicates that luck and the will of the people to maintain freedom and equality will override the powers that be.

 

United Kingdom Outlook

The United Kingdom’s outlook during the Year of the Dog indicates compassion and the courage to help those in need. The step up that is made by this great nation will help to temper some of the dissension resonating on our planet. This nations will be forced to put what’s going on internally on hold and proceed to step into a custodian position on the world platform, trying to summon unity in the free world.

 

Canada Outlook

The outlook for Canada during the Year of the Dog indicates this is not the time to cut corners or to ignore what’s going on worldwide.

JANUARY 2018

ASTRO ADVICE MONTHLY 

StarScoop: Bradley Cooper, born on Jan. 5, 1975, is undeniably the total package: brains, good looks, charm, diplomacy and everything else a gal could possibly want in a man. Still, there is a side to him that is well hidden when it comes to emotional matters. When things go wrong, and inevitably they do at some point, Bradley will walk away or dodge issues if humanly possible. But hey, that’s not uncommon.

To keep him in line, he has made a smart move in choosing Irina Shayk as his partner. She’s another Capricorn, born on Jan. 6, 1986. They have a pretty decent astrological comparison, but when it comes to truth and making a big deal out of any form of deceit, you can bet Irina will have the upper hand. She’s beautiful, seductive and can be revengeful if not treated properly.

Their differences are many. Bradley is a Goat with Sagittarius and Libra traits, and Irina is a Capricorn with strong Scorpio influences.

The new addition to the family is Lea, born March 21, 2017. She’s an Aries with her Moon in Capricorn and truly a lucky little girl to be born to two accomplished and dedicated parents.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Ease into the New Year. Prepare to deal with unexpected circumstances that require you to step up and do what’s necessary to maintain and gain control. Leave nothing to chance.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You are sitting in the perfect position, and whether or not you realize your good fortune, I urge you to test what’s available. Travel, communication and partnerships will be awesome.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Take a moment to reflect and consider your options. Taking an impulsive leap into the future will create a stir that can cost you emotionally, physically and financially.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You’ll have plenty of choices to make. First, look inward and discover what you really want to achieve. Strategize and make every move count. Impulse will be your downfall.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You’ll face unexpected change to your reputation, status and financial position. Don’t make a fuss or burn bridges. Your credibility and future prospects depend on how well you handle disruptions.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): What are you waiting for? Put all the detail and meticulous work you’ve done in the past to the forefront. It’s time to reap the rewards and take what’s rightfully yours.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Expect the unexpected. You’ll face opposition and setbacks if you aren’t accepting and willing to compromise in order to accommodate pressing matters. Stand tall and aim to please.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Expand your interests and learn from the experiences you encounter. Travel, education and dealing with matters that concern close friends and relatives should be a priority. Avoid reckless behavior.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Stick close to home and make necessary changes to ensure you are safe and sound and accommodating your plans for the future.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Opportunity coupled with uncertainty and a willingness to dive into the unknown will sum up how you enter the New Year. Avoid mistakes. Veer away from impulsive action.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Put everything in perspective. Keep life simple and live within your means. Educate yourself to ensure you are up to date with the latest rules and regulations. Don’t overreact or indulge.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Push your ideas to the forefront. Let go of the past and move into the future with imagination and wonder. Trust and believe in your skills, talents and ability to flourish.
