WEEK OF APRIL 23, 2017
DEAR EUGENIA: Am I going through a Saturn transit or something? Since 2015, my job has gone from bad to worse, along with any romantic relationships or love interests. I have put my all into my job, which I’ve had for 16 years; I’m trying to find a new job, with no luck. I’ve tried many avenues, such as online, networking, word of mouth, walking into places and have even applied to places not even currently hiring, just in case.
As for relationships, I had a boyfriend for 3 1/2 years, but that ended in early 2015. It wasn’t a bad breakup; he just got a new job and moved too far away to continue — I couldn’t move because my child is still in school, and we hadn’t tried living together. I thought we would remain friends, but we didn’t.
I had a six-month relationship that same year that ended up really hurting me, as I was misled. In 2016, a former co-worker asked me out to dinner. Thought things went well, he asked for a second date, then blew me off. I met someone great after that and thought things were going well, then he, too, just blew me off. I have tried online dating on and off, but I haven’t had any luck. I also try to be in social situations whenever possible.
I am always being myself, hoping someone might take an interest, but nothing seems to happen. I’m not desperate, as I know that’s a turnoff; plus, I want someone who’s worthy of me. Also, my standards are reasonable. Someone can be of average looks and intelligence, I just want someone I can connect with mentally and emotionally, enjoy laughter, conversations and fun. Is 2017 looking to be more of the same? I was born May 6, 1973, at 3:47 a.m. — Taurus
DEAR TAURUS: You have been going through your second half-life Saturn, and that has played a role in your inability to make changes in your life or connect with people. Transiting Jupiter is moving through an area of your chart that deals with relationships, which should encourage new possibilities or bring someone from your past back into your life. This transit will remain with you until mid-October, when it moseys into an area of your chart that deals with contracts, investments, marriage and job opportunities.
As you can see, the challenges are slowly moving out and the positives are movingin. You should be picking up more skills and knowledge to improve your qualifications between now and the end of the year if you want to make a change in vocation late this year and onward. So, yes indeed, things do get better.

DEAR EUGENIA: I have been unemployed for a year. I am desperate for some clarity about getting a new job soon and whether I should be going back to school, if it would be possible and if I do, should I be moving to do so? How can I afford it? I’m at my breaking point.
I am so worried. Last year was the worst year of my life. I just need some hope. If you could provide some insight, it would be greatly appreciated. I was born Feb. 12, 1982, at 3:29 a.m. — Aquarius
DEAR AQUARIUS: You appear to do better applying for a job at an institution, large corporation or government agency. The blockage you face has had more to do with how you present what you have to offer or how interesting your resume is and if it stands out. You have a decent natal chart, so the other problem could be your location. Don’t limit your chance to get a job by applying for only local positions. Between now and the fall is a good time to make a move if it means landing a good job.
Educational pursuits will be difficult at this time; however, next year you will be in a much better space for learning. This being the case, you may also want to consider applying for an apprenticeship.

DEAR EUGENIA: I have been divorced for almost 10 years, and although I have been on plenty of dates and had boyfriends, I have yet to find a compatible partner. I met a wonderful man (born Jan. 21, 1975), and we hit it off. I felt like he was truly different from all the others. We had a lot of fun together, and everything about our relationship felt so effortless and right.
As one can imagine, it was a shock when after four months of exclusive dating, he said he no longer had feelings for me and that his heart wasn’t healed from the breakup of his last relationship. He said his heart is still frozen.
I am giving him space. Any chance his attitude will change? I am devastated. I can imagine building a life with this man. Can this relationship be rekindled? I was born Feb. 28, 1975, at 1:43 a.m. — Hurting in the Rockies
DEAR HURTING IN THE ROCKIES: You didn’t mention the birth data for your partner’s ex-girlfriend. I’m assuming that their compatibility is better, given the circumstances as well as the comparison you have with him.
Your comparison denotes that you connected to him better than he did to you. He was a learning experience for you based on Karma. At a subconscious level, there is a lot more going on, and this leads me to believe that he was taking care of unfinished business.
As for you, regardless of what he does, you should be moving on, not dwelling on the past.
