Did Taurus re­turn for love — or for money? THE LAST WORD |

Chicago Sun-Times - - Easy - BY EU­GE­NIA LAST CON­FUSED

A. You can do so much bet­ter. The com­par­i­son isn’t even ad­e­quate. I’m not sure how you man­aged to stay to­gether 22 years but, if be­ing to­gether is pay­ing the bills and can en­sure the chil­dren a sta­ble en­vi­ron­ment along with a bet­ter ed­u­ca­tion and fu­ture prospects, it is worth your while to re­main with their fa­ther un­til they are old enough to fend for them­selves.

As for you, I be­lieve you should sit down with your hus­band and lay your cards on the ta­ble. Be­ing in a love­less re­la­tion­ship can’t be fun. You have to work out a timetable that will en­able you both to en­joy your lives as par­ents as well as hav­ing your own sep­a­rate so­cial en­ter­tain­ment.

This may seem odd at first but, in times like th­ese with the eco­nomic cli­mate be­ing so tough and the stress of try­ing to make a re­la­tion­ship that has very lit­tle hope work, I feel it is in the best in­ter­est of every­one in­volved and your best al­ter­na­tive.

Q. As an Aquarius, I thought this was sup­posed to be a ban­ner year.

It has been so-so. I fi­nally be­came ready to date again af­ter an abrupt end­ing of my last re­la­tion­ship with a man born July 28, 1961 at 9:30 a.m. Just at the time when he and I were get­ting very close and deeply con­nected, he bugged out.

He and I keep run­ning into each other or cross­ing paths; he is in a re­la­tion­ship, or was at this time last year.

We spent some time to­gether be- I’m with a man who cheated on me once in the 22 years that we were to­gether. When I found out, I left him. We were sep­a­rated for three years. I for­gave him and now we are back to­gether.

I love this man but I’m start­ing to think that the only rea­son he asked our four chil­dren and me to move in with him was for fi­nan­cial rea­sons — not for love. Did I make the right choice by mov­ing back?

We are both Taurus. He was born May 1, 1962 at 12:00 p.m. I was born May 6, 1968 at 2:31 a.m. fore Christ­mas last year and I was able to tell him ev­ery­thing that I needed to say. From that point on, I re­al­ized it was his fear of com­mit­ment that was caus­ing him to re­ject me. I have had tons of first dates. I be­gan dat­ing a Virgo (born Aug. 28, 1950) but that just fiz­zled out.

I am turn­ing 50 and don’t want to spend the rest of my life alone. I have been di­vorced for 16 years. I have had many re­la­tion­ships since my di­vorce but am looking for the one that will last. I was born Feb. 11, 1960 at 9:18 a.m. Any hope here?

KAT A. You aren’t much of an Aquarius. In fact, you only have your Sun in that sign with a build-up of plan­ets in Capricorn and the rest in Leo, Virgo, Scorpio, Sagittariu­s and Pisces.

The good news is that in your case, 2010 should far ex­ceed 2009 when it comes to ro­mance. How­ever, I must warn you ahead of time that you also may at­tract mar­ried men, mak­ing it cru­cial that you find out the ex­act sta­tus of any­one you are at­tracted to be­fore you waste pre­cious time or be­come too in­volved.

You match up best to those born un­der the signs Taurus, Can­cer, Virgo, early Scorpio, Capricorn and Pisces. Note: Leo is not on the list. I be­lieve you will meet Mr. Right in March or April.

Q. Af­ter break­ing up with my boyfriend two years ago (his birth date: April 17, 1957), I re­cently met a man whose birth date is Jan. 29, 1949. I am won­der­ing if the way we feel to­ward each other will con­tinue? I was born May 23, 1956 at 3:10 p.m.

GEMINI A. The com­par­isons you have with both your ex-boyfriend and your new man aren’t even in the same league. Your com­par­i­son with your ex in­di­cates that you can’t live with him or without him, how­ever, for your own good, it’s prob­a­bly best without.

Un­for­tu­nately, it is ap­par­ent that your new man is re­ally in your life to get your mojo up and run­ning again. So en­joy the good times but keep your eyes open for Mr. Right be­cause I be­lieve you will meet him dur­ing the month of love (Fe­bru­ary).

You match up to the signs Aries, Gemini, Leo, Sagittariu­s and Aquarius — just not the ones born in 1949 or 1962.
