Transiting Venus moves into the constellation Pisces this week giving way to a magical mysterious and miraculously passionate and creative state of affairs. I always love when the planet of love and art transits a sign as fluid as that of the Fish.
This transit gives way to deep compassion and empathy coupled with intuitive understanding of what makes the world go round. It’s the perfect time to cast your fate to the wind and demonstrate what love and creativity is all about.
It doesn’t stop there for those of you interested in the arts, dancing, music or otherwise this transit lends itself to the most unusual creations such as surrealistic art forms, new age music and classical dance which brings me to my favorite Shakespeare quote:
If music be the food of love, play on;
Give me excess of it, that, surfeiting,
The appetite may sicken, and so die.
That strain again! it had a dying fall:
O, it came o’er my ear like the sweet sound,
That breathes upon a bank of violets,
Stealing and giving odour! Enough; no more:
‘Tis not so sweet now as it was before.
O spirit of love! how quick and fresh art thou,
That, notwithstanding thy capacity
Receiveth as the sea, nought enters there,
Of what validity and pitch soe’er,
But falls into abatement and low price,
Even in a minute: so full of shapes is fancy
That it alone is high fantastical.
DEAR EUGENIA: I had a business and marriage for 30 years. I have three adult kids. In 2008, my wife (an Aries) left me. Then my worst decline started, I lived alone with no human contact.
Is it in my best interest to marry a lady I met (born Nov. 11, 1967)? My financial situation is meager, and my inheritance land is on the market. Can it be sold and when? Will I ever be able to stand on my own two feet again? In April 2012, I was in an accident; I broke my leg and chin, and I suffered a head injury. I am slowly getting back to normal. What’s in store for me? I am a Gemini, born June 5, 1954, at 7:30 a.m. — Gemini
DEAR GEMINI: Your chart indicates that you have had several setbacks the past five years, but life is slowly improving, and opportunities are heading your way. It is apparent that something you wanted to do professionally or something you used to enjoy that you can turn into a moneymaking endeavor should be developed and launched between now and the middle of 2016. So please don’t sit still when you should be on the move.
The Scorpio lady in question does match up to you emotionally and mentally; however, the physical isn’t that strong. If you are looking for a companion, she is fine, but if you want a lover, it may be lacking.
Your property is likely to sell between now and July, though you may not get as much as you hoped for. As long as you get enough to help you rebuild what you lost, it will be worth your while.

DEAR EUGENIA: I was with my ex-husband for 17 years before he left me for someone else, which actually was the best thing he ever did for me, to be honest! Since he left me nine years ago, there has been only one other man that I’ve had a relationship with, and that didn’t last long. Could you tell me if there is someone out there for me? I have joined dating sites, but no luck there. When I go out, the men seem interested in my friends and ignore me. I’m starting to feel as though I’m going to be alone forever. Am I right? I was born May 5, 1972, at 4:55 p.m. — Taurus
DEAR TAURUS: You may have been born under the sign Taurus, but you think like an Aries and love like a Gemini. This means that you are in a high cycle until the fall regarding love. Your chart indicates that you can meet someone if you take an interesting course or put a personal ad in a financial newspaper catering to more established individuals. Someone who comes from a different background or who you meet while traveling will also turn out to be a favorable connection.
Your chart does not show an inability to meet someone and fall in love, but it is likely that you will have to make the first move, so if you see someone who interests you, don’t hesitate to speak up. You match up well to the signs Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius and Aquarius.

DEAR EUGENIA: I don’t think of myself as the typical Sagittarius love-’em-and-leave-’em type of gal. I did leave my 11-year marriage but he was emotionally abusive. The last relationship I was in, four years ago, was a very bad decision with a Cancer born June 28, 1975. It took a long time to get over. I have not been involved with anyone since then. Admittedly, I have shied away from men because of the previous hurt. Plus, anyone who has asked me out has been married — what is up with that?
Will I find anyone this year? Is there still a chance for me to find someone who will care about me? I am optimistic, the one Sagittarius trait I embrace.
I have also been going through a career shift. I am in school again, this time to become a teacher. Turns out I have a knack for that kind of stuff. That part of my life is crazy busy but fulfilling.
I know these coming years are going to be challenging with transiting Saturn going through my sign. I’m not sure if it’s a good thing or something I should be worried about. I was born Nov. 23, 1969 at 11:54 p.m. — Loveless
DEAR LOVELESS: You do embrace life like a Sagittarius, but when it comes to love you are far more a Scorpio. The signs you match up to best are Aries, Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces. I can understand why it was so difficult for you to get over your Cancer partner, but he isn’t the only potential partner out there born under that sign.
You are well suited to teaching, being born with your natal Saturn in an area of your chart that deals with education and Saturn being the planet that deals with lessons, discipline and teaching.
Fall 2013 until spring 2014 was an ideal time to meet someone special; however, you may have missed the opportunity due to your past relationship and the fact that Saturn may have intervened as it moved over your natal Venus, but cycles come and go, so don’t give up on love. Your chart denotes that you are passionate and that you will find love, but when it comes to choosing, you tend to pick abusive partners, so you do need a little astrological help. Always check out whomever you date astrologically for poor aspects between your natal Venus and your love interest’s natal Mars and Neptune.
Your next high cycle for love will come your way beginning next month. Don’t look back or entertain the option to get back together with someone from your past. Move forward, and let the past go.
