Venus the planet of love, health and the arts moves into Sagittarius and Neptune planet of creativity and disillusionment turns direct.
Venus in Sagittarius brings out our friendly sociable side. It’s a great placement for the planet of love at this time of year when festivities are just beginning and the hustle and bustle of the season shouts loud and clear to think of others and to be helpful and mindful of those around us. Biggest problem with this planetary position is that when faced with a dilemma it’s not likely that deep discussions regarding feelings are going to be brought to the surface so if anyone out there is teetering on the prospects of whether or not to begin or end a relationship before the end of the year you are probably best to wait until Venus moves into Capricorn on December 11th.
On the favorable side Venus passing through the constellation Sagittarius is great if you want to crusade for a cause or be a Good Samaritan and help those less fortunate.
When it comes to health hips are probably the most vulnerable part of the body during this transit and although sports and physical activity are also highlighted caution must be taken.
Regarding entertainment and art the universal mood will swing in favor of being graphic and aggressive and country music will be at an all time high due to it’s story telling nature.
When Neptune is retrograde (June 9/14 – Nov. 16/14) it tends to heighten our perception allowing us to be more insightful and tune-in to the world around us, which may or may not be welcomed by everyone. It can also cause confusion and the use of stimulants are also more likely. While direct which is what Neptune will be until it turns retrograde again on June 12/15 the overall mood will be geared toward creativity and visual improvements.
Neptune rules the sign Pisces so while transiting this constellation it brings out mystical tendencies. It lends itself to world issues being more secretive and private. In other words although we are a population that has never been more connected technically we are certainly more isolated and the powers that rule more manipulative and secretive about what’s really going on. There has never been a time when relying on past experience has been more important and intuition necessary to guide us through troubled times. It is also a time we are inclined to turn to unusual answers medically, physically, emotionally, financially and personally and the importance of being self-responsible is truly a must.
DEAR EUGENIA: I am a 29-year-old female Aries born April 1, 1985, at 2:32 p.m. I have been in love with a 30-year-old Libra man (born Oct. 17, 1983) for the last 10 years, and we have been through a lot together.
We are currently not together, but every once in awhile he will call me just for small talk. He recently got married to someone else, and I’m now dating a 20-year-old Scorpio man (born Nov. 21, 1993). I find I am still deeply in love with my Libra man, and I cannot stop thinking about him. Am I wasting my time? Is there a chance for us to get back together? His wife was born Feb. 26, 1985. We all went to school together. — Aries
DEAR ARIES: You are being a typical Aries — wanting what you don’t think you can have. The fact is, you do match up better to your ex than he does to his wife; however, his comparison with her isn’t bad, so leave it alone.
As for you and your Scorpio man, the comparison is quite a bit superior to the one you have with your ex, so stop looking back and start looking into the future prospects with this fine man.
Both you and he are in a high cycle regarding love, and if you put more into this relationship, it will prove to be an interesting fit. The biggest challenge you face is that you are both a little fickle when it comes to commitment, so whether this relationship can actually lead to marriage is questionable.
You are going through your Saturn return and will be until next fall, and this should help you get a little warm and fuzzy with the prospect of marriage. As for him, he already went through his Saturn return, so he may be closer to settling down than you are right now. This next year will be a make-it-or-break-it period the two of you, however, should he pop the question, I think you’d be making a mistake to say no.

DEAR EUGENIA: I am a Leo (born July 29, 1983, at 4:20 a.m.), and I have been seeing a Taurus (born May 15, 1986) for about a month. In the beginning, it was amazing — intense chemistry and great banter. He made me laugh, and it felt so light and fun.
Our relationship progressed, and he even went camping with my friends and me. He could barely keep his hands off me from the time we met. We had an amazing time together, but right after the camping trip, he put me at arms length. He barely contacted me and stopped being affectionate.
He told me in the beginning he and his ex of three years broke up and she broke his heart, but it was over and he was ready to move on and find someone special. He made me feel like I was that girl. I feel like he started to really like me and got scared and backed away. Is there any hope he will change his mind and open up to me and stop being so emotionally unavailable? — Leo in Love
DEAR LEO IN LOVE: The comparison is adequate, but it does show signs of sorrow should you pursue this connection. Your Taurus man has been going through a lot of confusion and uncertainty, so don’t be too hard on him. Chances are good that he isn’t completely over his ex and needs time to process being single.
Your chart indicates that you do have a habit of attracting the wrong partner, making it vital that you have an astrological comparison cast before you give your heart away. You may be a Leo by Sun sign and you even tend to think like a Lion, but when it comes to affairs of the heart, you are a Virgo through and through. Your natal Venus (represents love) is adversely positioned to your natal Jupiter (abundance) and Uranus (unexpected/sudden change), making love at first sight and relationships that end as fast as they begin likely.
On the favorable side, you do attract an abundance of partners, however, many will be short-lived.

DEAR EUGENIA: I want to know what’s going to happen in the future. It hasn’t been so good lately. What’s going to happen with a guy I was dating (born March 21, 2001). Why does he always play me? He told me he loved me one day and the next day he didn’t care anymore and everything he told me he ended up telling his new girlfriend. I was born July 19, 2001, at 9:58 p.m. — Sad and Lonely
DEAR SAD AND LONELY: What I can tell you is that since June 2013 your chart has been majorly hit with poor transits, and although this is lifting, you are heading into your first half-life Saturn at the end of next year and remaining with you throughout 2016. This is usually a time of change, re-evaluation and new experiences. In your case, it appears to be dealing with education, where you go to school, what you study and how you get along with some of your teachers and peers.
Regarding relationships, you are in a high cycle between now and late next spring; however, it will be a long time before your Aries fella is ready to settle down with one person. You are both young and should be loving, learning and experiencing all sorts of mini-relationships so that when the right person does comes along, you’ll know it. If you walk away from him now, it’s possible when you are older and wiser you will meet again under better circumstances, giving your relationship a fair chance. For now, enjoy your love transit and the company of people who make you laugh, not those who stress you out and hurt your feelings.
