The Sun moved into the constellation Scorpio on the on the 24th, Mars moves into Capricorn on the 27th and Mercury turned direct on the 25th allowing us access to begin new ventures.
Transiting Sun in Scorpio brings with it intensity. You can use this transit to your advantage or disadvantage, by that I mean you can let jealousy and possessiveness take over or you can overwork, seek perfection and diligently move toward your goals.
Whenever we have fast moving planets moving through the secretive water sign Scorpio you can bet it will be a good time to fight for a cause, belief or make your point heard. This is a sign that despises weakness but on the other hand will do anything and everything to fight for the underdog. It’s a time to bring truth to the forefront and to ensure you have everything under control.
Most importantly make a point to get rid of regret and to toss emotional vindictiveness aside and replace it with favorable Scorpio traits such as magnetism, loyalty and relentless courage.
Mars transiting through Capricorn on the other hand can help you focus your energy on important professional goals, to beef up your knowledge and apply past experience to help you excel in an industrious manner. It can also play a role by enabling you to reach a financial level that ensures greater stability and security for months to come.
So tie up loose ends and begin to prepare for the New-Year on solvent ground. Use this transit wisely by incorporating greater organization into your life and using self-control and discipline to excel personally professionally and financially.
DEAR EUGENIA: I guess telling you that I was born hard of hearing, nearly 90 percent deaf in both ears, would count as additional birth data, but my problem isn’t about that. I can’t find a soul mate. I heard on more than one occasion that people will marry their boyfriend or girlfriend that they met at the age of 16, and I don’t have a girlfriend yet. I was born Dec. 27, 1997, at 9:02 p.m. This is troublesome, and trying to find someone to date longer than a month has been next to impossible. Every girl I date is like a gold digger or just looking for intercourse. When is the best time to look for a girlfriend, and which star sign is the most compatible with Capricorn? — Alone
DEAR ALONE: The Sun signs that match up best with Capricorn are the earth Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn and water Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces. Although you were born under the sign of the Goat, you think like a Sagittarius and love like an Aquarius, so it’s highly unlikely that the earth and water signs are going to mix well with you.
You are still young, and to think that most people marry the person they meet at the young age of 16 in this day and age is a little old-fashioned. You have plenty of living to do before you need to settle down with anyone, especially with the Sagittarius and Aquarius influence in your chart.
You are in a high cycle regarding love until next summer, but that doesn’t mean this is going to be your one and only love. Look for someone born under the sign Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius or Aquarius.

DEAR EUGENIA: I have a family issue. I have been with this man for 10 years (born May 27, 1980 at 5:30 a.m.). We have two wonderful kids together, and I love him as a man and father. Ten months ago, we separated and became very disconnected; currently, he is doing everything in his power to get back together. He has made a 180-degree turn and is loving and caring about everything that matters to me. He is in love with me 100 times more then he has been in the past.
We have been talking for a couple of weeks. But I have had another interest in my life for the past four months, first as a really great friend, and we have been serious for the past two months. He was born March 26, 1980.
I don’t know which direction to go — my heart tells me to be patient with my husband and work things out, but my soul tells me something different. At the moment, I have removed myself from my friend due to the loyalty I have for my ex-husband. I want my ex to have a fair chance to work on us. I’m in a state of confusion I never intended to be put in. I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings — including my own. I was born Aug. 28, 1985, at 11:48 p.m. — Virgo
DEAR VIRGO: Your dilemma is warranted; however, the comparison with your ex is the better of the two. Not by much and not without sorrow, but certainly worth giving it another try — not only for both of you, but also for the wonderful children you brought into the world together. You do match up better to your ex emotionally, mentally and physically than you do to your Aries man, even if right now it doesn’t feel that way.
Your friend falls in an area of your chart that deals with secret affairs, and my fear is that should you choose him over your long-term Gemini, eventually you will miss the man you have so much history with.
The problems or bad habits that you have experienced with your ex in the past are likely to come back in 2016 if you don’t keep close tabs on your relationship as well as maintain open and honest communication.

DEAR EUGENIA: I’m having an issue. As a child, I felt different and I saw and felt many things. I know my sign Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, which pretty much means difficulties and setbacks. I was wondering if things will ever get better for me and my son, born Sept. 12, 2001, at 7:09 p.m. Will I ever meet my soul mate and will my son have a father, or will I continue to struggle and not let anyone get close to me? I’m tired of dating people who don’t complete or complement me. I was born Jan. 8, 1982 around 4:30 pm. — Capricorn
DEAR CAPRICORN: Saturn is not all doom and gloom. It gives you discipline, courage, depth and intensity. It all depends on how well or poorly it is situated in your natal chart that determines how much negativity will manifest, and it also depends on how you handle and what you do with the lessons Saturn puts you through. Indeed, it is a planet that deals with growth, re-evaluation and serious matters, but it’s not all bad.
In your case, you do have your natal Saturn in the sign Libra adversely positioned to your natal Sun in an area of your chart that deals with relationships and your home environment. This does make it difficult for you to open up and trust, however, it doesn’t mean you cannot find true love. You are in a high cycle right now and will be until next summer. Your chart indicates that you will have greater opportunity to meet someone if you take part in things you enjoyed doing when you were growing up. Try bringing someone from your younger years back into your life.
You are also experiencing favorable transits regarding how you earn your living, so do not hesitate to make professional changes or look for opportunities that will lead to a higher income.
Your son has a good chart, and it is obvious that you have been a great parent. You fall at the top of his chart, and he knows he can count on you. He is heading into his first half-life Saturn in 2016 and will experience some changes with regard to his educational pursuits and dealing with friends, relatives and people in his community.
