The most popular use of astrology in the western world is the daily horoscope found in your favorite newspaper. Now, with the knowledge I’m sending you it is possible for you to read the entire column and apply each sign to your life. Unfortunately, most people do not realize that our personalities are affected by all of the twelve signs, not just our sun sign.
AT my website www.eugenialast.com I offer a service called Daily Timing that teaches you how you can apply the daily horoscopes written for each sign to the different areas of your life.
A basic understanding of the characteristics of each sign and what area of life each house represents will also aid you in applying this ancient science to your life. This little bit of astrological knowledge can turn the daily horoscope into a useful tool that will enable you to make the right moves at the most opportune time.
Think of the horoscope as being a clock, divided into twelve segments, or houses. Each house governs a two-hour time span that represents a specific area of your life. Your exact time of birth is important because it determines which astrological sign will fall in the first house, second house, etc.
In order to use my daily horoscope column properly you must have a basic understanding of what each sign and house represents.
I cannot stress how important it is to have accurate information regarding your day, month, year, time and place of birth. Birth times are often obtained through family members or preferably from hospital records like your birth certificate.)
Astrology is not fortunetelling or stargazing. It’s a science that has existed for centuries. Astrology is a mathematical science and an interpretive art. Astrology is the modern art of timing.
DEAR EUGENIA: The start of the new year was not as I planned. I got arrested for the first time; I was charged with a felony and a misdemeanor for leftover drugs found in my car, something I had every intention ending completely in 2013. I now have two separate cases, meaning two separate courts and judges.
I feel like I just can’t catch a break. I’ve struggled with depression, anxiety and feeling stuck for my entire life. I’ve always felt the need for guidance and direction.
I have a 2-year-old son, and have been in a six-year relationship with his father — the guy who introduced me to drugs — a Virgo born Sept. 16, 1990. For the past three years, I have felt like our relationship is going nowhere.
Before my baby’s dad, I was in a seven-year long-distance relationship with another Virgo (born Aug. 29, 1990). We still keep in regular contact. He is a Marine, and he is deployed. I know he still loves me and always will; he makes that clear. He has also made it clear he loves my son.
I just don’t know what to do. Should I try to make it work with my son’s father and let go of the past? Or should I try to rekindle what I once had with my first love? I was born Aug. 13, 1990, at 3:45 a.m. — Leo
DEAR LEO: The astrological comparisons with both Virgos have pros and cons. The father of your child has a much stronger physical connection that keeps you coming back for more, but it lacks totally with regard to bringing you a bright future and positive opportunities. This relationship also boasts emotional deception, and from what I can see, is meant to be a lesson in your life, nothing more.
The comparison with your ex-boyfriend offers far more stability and opportunity; however, it lacks physically.
This brings me to your alternatives. You have a son who deserves the best that you can provide. This is certainly not with a man who introduced you to drugs, even if he is your son’s father. Your ex can offer you and your son the fundamentals required to raise a child, but the likelihood of you being able to remain true to him is questionable.
You are in a high cycle regarding love, romance, marriage, etc. throughout June and July. This is the time to either reunite with your ex to make it work or find someone new. Your first concern should be your son.
Your natal chart is quite good, but your choices have not been. It’s time to focus on doing what’s best for you and your boy.

DEAR EUGENIA: I love your app. It really has brought some light to my darker days. I am 25, born Sept. 5, 1988, at 5:03 a.m. I was in a relationship with my ex for more than 3 1/2 years. He was born July 9, 1985. We broke up six months ago.
It hasn’t been the easiest transition for him or me, but I’ve learned to restore my faith in love and finding someone who will love me for me and give me great happiness.
Recently, I started seeing someone born Jan. 29, 1986. My feelings have grown intensely fast for him — more than for any man I’ve seen. He and I have a great connection that seems to run deep, but I am unsure of where this is going or if love is only on my side right now. Is the guy I am seeing currently the right match for me? — Virgo
DEAR VIRGO: The comparison with your current boyfriend far exceeds the connection you have with your ex, so don’t compare or consider reconciliation.
You match up much better to your Aquarius man; however, the comparison is not without some problems. There is mental and emotional deception present, which can be on your part, his or both. Either or both of you are not being upfront about your past, especially concerning your personal relationships and how you feel about love, marriage and children.
These matters must be cleared up before you can move forward. Once the coast is clear, I believe this relationship has a fighting chance as long as you continue to communicate honestly and openly.

DEAR EUGENIA: My husband passed away about four months ago. My life turned upside down. I miss him like crazy. Why I am hoping and thinking that he will come for me soon? All I wanted was to have and be a family. We have a daughter who we both love so much, but I wish I were dead so I could be with him. I was born Aug. 24, 1987, at 3:52 a.m. — Missing Him
DEAR MISSING HIM: It is very difficult to move on, but that is exactly what you have to do: Not only for your sake, but also for the wonderful little girl the two of you brought into this world. Your chart indicates that you will find love again and that you will be happy. Right now, your loss is too fresh, and you need to find a bereavement group or counselor that can help you move past this tragedy.
For the next few years, you should focus on raising your daughter and securing your professional direction and standing. Picking up skills and doing your best to raise your earning potential will help you grow mentally and emotionally, while building your confidence and ability to offer your daughter everything she needs to get over the loss as well.
Choosing to participate in activities with your daughter will help you heal and allow you both to move forward with fond memories.
