WEEK OF AUGUST 20, 2017
Dear Eugenia: I was born on Sept. 16, 1976, at 10:15 p.m., and my lady friend was born on Sept 15, 1995, at 11:30 p.m.
This woman was my ex-fiancée’s best friend. My engagement took place in 2014, and we were in a long-distance romance, as she lived at her parents’ home in a different country.
The first time I saw her best friend’s photo, something about her struck me. She just had the looks and appeal and everything I wanted in a woman. The first day we met face to face in 2015, I noticed she had feelings for me and had wanted to meet me, too.
My ex and I had a fight and her best friend reached out to me, trying to mediate. Since that time, the urge to get closer to this other woman was more serious, but I held myself back. I noticed that my heart beat more when around her than when I was with my fiancée.
When I discovered that we were just a Sun Sign birthdate apart, I knew we were meant to be given the power of the Sun.
Sadly, my ex-fiancée was not meeting my expectations in prospect for marriage. That was the case even before I met her best friend. There were many signs that my ex was with me for my money. She cheated on me on countless occasions.
Last November, I reached out to you about my dilemma, and your response made me understand my relationship with my fiancée better and that it was time to give her an ultimatum regarding moving forward or not. To my amazement, she opted out of the engagement.
By February 2017, the whole engagement was called off. The late May full moon was a turning point for me, as I couldn’t stop thinking about my ex’s best friend, and I reached out to her. After two weeks of communication, she agreed to date me.
Truth be told, her ways, her style and her personality complete me. I am preparing now to travel to meet with this Virgo woman, and I hope to spend a long time in my home country to make this relationship work. Your input would be greatly appreciated. — Virgos in Love
Dear Virgos in Love: What more can I add to your love story? I believe you have made up your mind already. However, there are a couple of areas of concern that show up in your astrological comparison. There is a potential for emotional disillusionment or deception and sorrow with regard to what you both expect from one another on your part, and on her part with not being completely upfront about the way she feels regarding having children, where she wants to reside etc.
No relationship is perfect. A lack of honesty and communication is usually the culprit behind the problems that develop. If you can overcome this, you will be able to form a forever union.

Dear Eugenia: I have been getting emails from a couple mediums, and they both say I will be coming into a great amount of money. Also, I’ve started a relationship with a guy I’ve known since childhood (born on July 20, 1983). My life is so unstable, and I just want to know if I’ll ever get it together, come into cash and find true love. I was born on Jan. 6, 1981, at 12:50 a.m. — Capricorn
Dear Capricorn: Emails sent to you by a medium requesting cash to tell you how or when you are going to come into money are a scam, so please do not oblige.
You were born with an aspect in your natal chart that causes uncertainty, which is why you waffle when it comes to getting your act together. This past year has left you filled with doubt regarding what direction to take, but you will begin to think with a clear head as this year heads into its final quarter. Picking up new skills, an apprenticeship or an educational pursuit should be in the works now; these will lead to better future prospects over the next couple of years.
With regard to your Cancer friend, the comparison isn’t bad, but there is some sorrow that shows with regard to communication and relationships with each other’s family and friends. Keep the communication open and give each other the freedom to maintain or achieve your life goals or dreams.

Dear Eugenia: I fell hard for a Taurus (born on April 26, 1980, at 3:04 p.m.). I’m an Aries (born on April 4, 1981, at 3:54 p.m.). The last several years have been about regaining my footing and being responsible, so I was planning on completing some goals before having a partner. Well, a little over a month ago, I met a woman who was incredibly beautiful, intelligent and seemed genuinely to have feelings for me. We shared many common goals. We seemed to be completely lost in each other.
Last week, it all came to a grinding halt. I thought it was because we had a communication error, but then she told me that she had been in contact with an ex. I had asked you in the past about her relationship with him, and you accurately predicted that she held on to past loves, keeping them dangling for whenever she wanted their attention. Well, she cheated on me, I think several times.
She ended up taking on a personal vendetta against me and has contacted every woman I have tried to date since. She told me to not contact her, but I am not very good at doing the “I don’t care” thing, because I do. Is there any hope for us? — Aries
Dear Aries: This appears to be a karmic connection, but you both fall in the area of each other’s natal chart that leads to dead ends. Although the comparison is difficult to walk away from, emotional deception is prominent and can lead to sorrow regarding your reputation, status or relationships with others.
My advice is to walk away, but she will probably do her best to dangle you as well. Be strong, put your running shoes on and head as far away from her as possible. You will find someone else when the time is right in late 2018 throughout 2019.
