CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: David Boudia, 29; Kelly Clarkson, 36; Cedric the Entertainer, 54; Barbra Streisand, 76.

Happy Birthday: Take the initiative to bring about positive change in your life and your relationships. Socialize more and volunteer your services for events that you find compelling and will lead to new acquaintances with unusual people.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t do anything drastic. Changing your look will not turn out quite the way you want, and addressing an emotional issue will only make matters worse. Focus more on clearing a space to make room for a new project. 4 stars

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Secrets are best kept that way. Someone you thought was like you will disappoint you. If you want change, take action and make it happen. Waiting for someone else to make a move will be unproductive. 3 stars

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Listen to the voice of reason and put practical applications into play. Going with the flow instead of against it will prove to be in your best interest. Don’t be shy or reluctant to accept help when offered. 3 stars

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Overspending is not the way to win someone’s affection. Put your wallet away and use your personality and charm to turn heads. How you treat others physically and emotionally will be the deciding factor when dealing with important relationships. 4 stars

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Handling your relationships with colleagues or friends will be emotionally difficult. Be careful not to send the wrong message with your actions or words. You’ll face criticism or blame for something you unintentionally say or do. Don’t share private information. 2 stars

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): If you want to make a positive change, do something that will lower your overhead. Emotional problems will spin out of control, causing stress if you can’t find a workable solution. Trying to control someone’s bad habits will be fruitless. 3 stars

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don’t feel you have to pay for someone else’s mistake. Offer suggestions but don’t physically or financially step in and take over. Personal changes can be made as long as they are within your budget. Personal relationships will be tested. 3 stars

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don’t let an offer confuse you. A change may be tempting, but before you make a decision, find out exactly what’s expected of you and what you will receive in return. Don’t get caught up in someone else’s enthusiasm. 3 stars

Birthday Baby: You are sensitive, driven and bold. You are aggressive and dramatic.

SUNDAY, APRIL 22, 2018


     ARIES (March 21-April 19): Turn on the charm and make a point to attend a reunion or connect via social media with someone you can’t seem to forget. You’ll discover something that will help you move forward and get on with your life. Love is on the rise.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Get out, join in community events and be a participant. Make a point to be a social butterfly and mingle with other singles. Your wisdom, thoughtfulness and ability to offer positive suggestions will make you an easy prospect for someone looking for a forever partner just like you.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You’re a charmer to begin with, so it isn’t difficult for you to attract attention, but this week your chitchat will drum up interest from someone who is just as charming and could, if you aren’t careful, reel you in and break your heart. Don’t believe everything you hear.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You need a little excitement in your life. You need to diversify when it comes to love. Consider spending time with someone very different from your normal companion. Think about attending a community cultural event and see what happens.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Your desire for adventure and change will leave you in a quandary when it comes to love. You expect loyalty from whomever you are with, but at the same time you will be attracted to partners who tend to be flirtatious and just as likely to wander as you are.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Confusion will set in when it comes to love relationships. You’ll be attracted to a smooth talker who is likely to tell you what you want to hear instead of how he or she actually feels. When in doubt, do a background check and ask pertinent questions.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don’t look for someone who can take care of you; look for someone who brings out the best in you. Equality should be your goal when it comes to love and marriage. If you cannot maintain balance in your personal life, it will make it difficult to make a lasting commitment.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You’ll be attracted to success as well as someone who is not afraid to be unique and take a chance. Attend events that pique your imagination and make you consider following a path less conventional. You will discover someone who fascinates you mentally, physically and emotionally.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Honesty and being willing to share your true feelings will make the difference when it comes to your love life. Don’t lead anyone on. Say what’s on your mind, and you’ll discover soon enough if someone you fancy is the right partner for you.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Your desire for greater personal stability will push you toward someone you know you can count on to pick up where you left off — your soul mate. This is the person who can finish your sentences and knows intuitively when something is wrong. You need someone just like you.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): A change will do you good. Looking back over your past loves and failures will help you discover what you want in a partner as you move forward. The days of falling for a misleading or toxic relationship should be over. Say no to anyone who doesn’t treat you right.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You’ll have plenty of opportunities when it comes to love, but confusion regarding who is best for you will make your decision difficult. Give whoever interests you enough rope to show his or her true colors. Trust will be essential when it comes to developing a long-term relationship.

Dear Eugenia

SUNDAY, APRIL 22, 2018


Dear Eugenia: I have been divorced for three years and am now open to finding love again. I’m a romantic at heart and am wondering if someone good and loving will enter my life? Do you see a second marriage?

I’m also thinking of buying property as an investment. Does this look like a favorable time period for financial gains?

I was born Aug. 4, 1968, at 4:32 a.m. and feel like I need to shake things up a little before I become too set in my ways. — Curiosity Killed the Big Cat

Dear CURIOSITY: To your first query, yes and yes, not quite yet but certainly heading in that direction. To clarify, come fall you will begin to move into a period that is conducive to partnerships and finding love. However, it’s important you don’t let someone who isn’t right for you taint your desire to find true love between now and the fall. If you should meet someone during the summer months, please have an astrological comparison cast to point out any pitfalls that show up. Waiting for the right partner will lead to a much better scenario over the next couple of years that could easily turn into a forever commitment.

The problem I foresee with a property investment is you pay too much and the overhead consumes you. Err on the side of caution and reconsider late this year or next.

Where you should be considering change is with regard to how you earn your living or ways to bring in extra cash without taking on too much of a burden. It is more apparent that you will make cash through working more so than investments.

               **             **             **

Dear Eugenia: I have a friend born Aug. 28, 1988, in Puerto Rico (time unknown). When he lived in the States, we became very good friends; it was easy and comfortable as we had similar interests. We seemed to be on the same wavelength.

There was a mutual romantic attraction, and we would’ve liked to date (our age difference concerned me, not him), but we knew he was returning to his homeland, so I didn’t want my heart to get broken.

We have kept in touch on a regular basis ever since (he’s been back in Puerto Rico almost a year), and one or both of us mentions what might have been, missing one another, etc. He often asks when I’ll come visit. Sometimes he says he still holds out hope for us and isn’t interested in other women.

Despite the age difference, from what you can tell, would we have had a good comparison? I was born May 6, 1973, at 3:47 a.m. — Taurus

DEAR TAURUS: Your friend has just experienced his first Saturn return, while you were going through your second half-life Saturn. The connection you have astrologically is quite special. However, I understand your trepidation due to the age difference. I have plenty of clients who have gone through a similar situation, and some have worked and others have not. Without your friend’s exact birth time, it is difficult for me to be sure, but from what I can see, you both should consider taking the time to find out rather than spending the rest of your lives regretting what might have been.

He is a Virgo with his natal Venus (love) in Cancer, and I believe it when he says the age difference doesn’t bother him. The problem is within you and whether you can overcome this concern. I feel you both went through your Saturn experiences and evaluated your situation enough that if you dig deep, you’ll discover you know what feels right and you’ll take a chance on love. Life is short and precious moments should not be denied.

               **             **             **

Dear Eugenia: I’m a single mom working part-time at a company where I’ve been feeling kind of stuck lately, but I fear to quit because I would have to start school again and look for a better job, which would bring new challenges.

I’m open for a new love relationship, but I feel rather defensive toward people. I also feel so disconnected from my son, and on the whole, to people in general. I suppose I’ve become an introvert. Any suggestions? I was born Sept. 6, 1990, at 10 a.m. — Virgo

Dear VIRGO: You didn’t mention your son’s birth information, so I cannot comment much about that. However, what I can tell you is that where children show up in your chart you began to go through a period that would cause distance between you and your children or an inability to relate to them.

This will pass, but before it does, you are heading into your first Saturn return. This happens to fall in an area that deals with communication and education. You may not relate readily to others during the next 18 months, but it can be quite good for updating your qualifications and picking up skills that will help boost your resume and your ability to earn more.

Your chart indicates you should be considering the hospitality industry, which might draw you into social settings and help you reconnect with people more. It’s easy to become reclusive and just live each day without any challenges, but eventually you may have regrets.

You are still young and this is a wonderful time for you to expand your knowledge, experience and ability to get ahead, if not only for you, for your son as well.

The next two years you will be questioning and re-evaluating your life up to this point. Make your assessment count and instead of just thinking about what you can do, make it happen.

APRIL 2018


StarScoop: Aries-born Natasha Lyonne captured my attention in the series “Orange Is the New Black.” Her outstanding career began at age 6 on “Pee-Wee’s Playhouse” and continued with a host of movies.

There is no doubt that Lyonne is entertaining and vibrant, with all the qualities needed to be a star. But lurking within is a dark side that she has not tried to hide on screen or off, and it has probably contributed to her talent and success.

Lyonne can swivel quickly from one thing to the next, looking for the unknown and unfamiliar. She has a chart that is anything but peaceful, mostly consisting of highs and lows.

The past couple of years have not been easy for her, with temptations that may have given her food for thought. With transiting Jupiter favoring a great deal of her chart until the fall, she will be where she wants to be before late 2018 throughout 2019, when temptation will set in, making it necessary for her to avoid indulgent behavior yet again.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Ups and downs will keep you on your toes. Separate your emotions when it comes to taking care of responsibilities. Don’t give up what you’ve worked so hard to accomplish.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Focus on yourself and changes you want to make. Be secretive until you have had time to assess, source out and set plans in motion.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): If you want to do something nice, start where it counts. Charity begins at home, and taking care of the ones you love should be your top priority.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You’ll be torn between what you want to do and what you are supposed to do. Organization will be the key to managing responsibilities and accomplishments.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Keep your life simple, stay focused on what you need to do in order to excel, and refrain from letting your generosity put you in the poorhouse.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Self-improvement should be your aim. Discipline and hard work will help you get into shape and looking your best. Don’t trust anyone else to handle your affairs.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Personal problems will surface if you let your emotions override your intelligence and common sense. Find peaceful ways to improve personal and professional relationships.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Take care of your responsibilities, do the best you can, and avoid getting into a conflict with someone you work with. Make love and romance priorities.

East Meets West

The Year of the Dog 2018


West: Jan. 1, 2018 – Dec. 31, 2018

East: Feb. 16, 2018 – Feb. 4, 2019




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



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. It’s imperative that priorities are put into play based on what’s best for the planet, not what will economically benefit the great white north. Standing up for the countries principles and beliefs may mean letting past policies go and rebuilding new coalitions.

My astrological take on the US election.

We are dealing with two very different candidates..

One candidate who has an ability to color situations and charismatically mesmerize the crowds. A player who only plays to win and is willing to muddy the waters to reach his destination.

The other who has an intense, hardworking attitude but hosts a chart that denotes she has never gotten away with anything. A woman who has dedicated her life to serving the public.


A Gemini versus a Scorpio…..

From my observation over the years when two candidates face off sometimes the one with the better chart or transits wins and other times the one who isn’t as well favored by the planets wins.

This is based on what the candidates are signing up for. In the case of the US presidency I’d have to say the job awaiting whoever wins is not going to be an easy task. For that very reason given the transits both candidates will experience on November 8th are so evenly matched it’s anyone’s ball game – or is it?

Looking at some of the positives and negatives they both have going on. It’s obvious that somewhere someone is going to be let down by those he or she are counting on for support and votes. Hillary will always be let down by institutions and I believe has grown to know that and has compensated for this likelihood. Donald on the other hand will be let down by the people he thinks he has won over and owe him, something he’s not used to experiencing.


Regardless they both need to work on their people skills.








Here are some tips that will help you make that happen.

  1. Please do not send a one-line question. Tell me about your situation, how you feel and what your concerns are.
  2. Make sure you include your complete birth data as well as the birth information for anyone involved in your concern.
  3. Make your email and question interesting for my readers. After all there probably is someone reading my response that is experiencing a similar problem.
  4. Don’t worry about your question being too long. I will edit it to fit the column.
  5. Know that I am here to help you and that your name and birthplace will not be included in my column (only the actual day, month, year and time of birth will be included).
  6. Remember that everyone has problems and reading about yours helps a lot of people realize that they aren’t going through their troubles all alone.

The reason I offer this column and free advice is to educate people with regard to how astrology works and how it can help you. To make people realize that astrology is a mathematical science and an interpretive art. It is the Are Of Timing.

My answers are based on where the planets were situated at the precise moment a person was born and where the planets are currently as well as where they are headed and how they relate to where they were at birth.

Astrology is not predictive it’s a timing tool or guideline that helps you make the best decision at the most opportune time. I often refer to a person’s natal chart as the manual they were born with. If you understand how you operate it can help you do your best and maintain and groom yourself for victory.

So please send me your questions. I’m listening and I’m here to help.
