DEAR EUGENIA by Eugenia Last
DEAR EUGENIA: I’m looking for guidance regarding my life path during the next several months. My birthdate is Jan. 16, 1961, at 7:11 a.m. There have been many shake-ups in my life the last few months. I received a considerable promotion in my job, the last of my children has moved out on his own, I am an empty nester now and I will be moving to a new home in a couple months after living in the same home for almost eight years.
My last serious relationship ended more than five years ago, but I haven’t been looking to date because I’ve been caught up with being a single mother, focusing on my job and trying to mend my broken heart.
Do you see any opportunities in the near future that I might find a new love interest? If so, when? My ex has finally moved on, and I’d like to do the same. I would like to settle down sooner rather than later. Please tell me it is not too late for me to find love.
I have so much love I would like to share with someone other than family and co-workers. — Color Me Blue
DEAR COLOR ME BLUE: Your depression and concern regarding finding love have been set off by transiting Saturn. This great planet is a teacher, disciplinarian and a warrior for bringing greater security and stability into people’s lives if they know how to handle the lessons offered.
Right now, Saturn is sitting on your ascendant, and this can cause depression and the desire to get more out of life and your relationship with others. Your actual Saturn return doesn’t begin until early next year. However, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be going through the process of how to move forward in regard to love and marriage.
Since late last year transiting Jupiter has been well positioned to your natal Venus, and that is usually an indication that love is close by. Although this is in effect until the end of the summer, nothing will happen if you don’t engage in the process of socializing and looking for love.
You match up well to the signs Taurus, Cancer, Scorpio, Capricorn and Pisces. Your chart indicates that someone from your past or someone you work or have worked with would be a good match. Attending reunions, networking functions and industry events would be a good place to start.

DEAR EUGENIA: I’m expecting a baby, due in early October. My new boyfriend (not the father) and I are struggling financially. But he’s recently come across an opportunity to make extra money on the side. The problem is that the legality is not necessarily sound. That being said, he has already agreed that if we decide to pursue this avenue, nothing will be happening at our house.
I’m concerned how this will pan out. What he’s considering doing has a hefty prison sentence attached if he’s caught. But he’d be doing it to pay rent and buy things we need for the baby, so I’m torn. Any advice is greatly appreciated. He is a Cancer. Born July 21, 1992. I’m unsure of the time of day. And I’m a Pisces. Born Feb. 26, 1993, at 9:40 p.m. — Young Love
DEAR YOUNG LOVE: I think you know my answer, and frankly, I don’t need to look at your charts to tell you what you should do, but I will to give you an idea of the outcome.
You have a strong astrological connection to your fella. Without his time of birth, it’s impossible to tell whether he will be incarcerated, but given the transits that will hit his natal chart during the next four years and with what your chart is experiencing during the next two years, I believe it’s inevitable that his luck will run out and you will end up a single mom.
If you truly love this man, I suggest you find another way to pull in extra cash legally. Start doing something to contribute financially as well. If he truly loves you, this should not be the route he takes to prove it.
Your guy is lucky, but not so fortunate that he won’t get caught — or something worse.

DEAR EUGENIA: I need to know the family dynamics between my children and their respective families and myself. My two grandchildren mean the world to me, and I’d like to know the role I can play in each of their lives.
I am also deciding on what next to do in my life as I’m entering a new phase. I’ve made grave mistakes in the past — selling my home — and am now looking to buy another. I’m hoping you can confirm this is the right move. Also, should it be a house or a condo, in town or out and close to my sister or not?
As for career, do I stay put, semiretire, fully retire and do something altogether different? As you can see, I am at odds right now and could use some direction. I was born March 29, 1953, at 12:01 a.m. — Happy Aries
DEAR HAPPY ARIES: Your chart indicates your desire to be a big part of your children’s and grandchildren’s lives and that you should spend the next two years traveling back and forth between them in order to establish your place in their lives.
It is also evident that uncertainty regarding your career will continue during this period, leading me to believe you should at least semiretire so you can enjoy travel and spending time with your kids.
Regarding your decision to buy back into the market, it is apparent that late fall until next summer is the best time for you to purchase. Whether it’s a condo or small house, city or country, is not indicated by the transits you are experiencing next year. However, if you plan to travel, not having to worry about your home would be less stressful. My biggest concern is the temptation to purchase too quickly when time is truly on your side.
