Happy Holidays from Madame G! You may feel a crisis coming on, and it’s not just you. The First Quarter Moon arrives right after Christmas on Dec. 26. This tends to spark moments of fierce misunderstanding and trauma. Instead of reacting and overspending all of your hard earned cash, sit down with your family and let them know you love them, more than gifts. Feliz Navidad!


Aries (March 21-April 19)

Don’t let the influence of the chaotic First Quarter Moon frustrate you. This too shall pass. You’ve learned so much in the last year. Take a moment to reinvigorate your process. Think before your act. Your loved ones will thank you! They love you anyway, despite your crazy ideas, but they’ll learn to trust your judgement if you communicate your plans clearly. Try it.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You might think you know all there is to know, but you don’t. You can always learn about the birds in the sky and crazy zombie bees that sort of pollinate the world (it’s a thing, look it up). This world is ever changing. That can be scary at times. But it’s up to you to determine what’s really worth fighting for, and what’s merely the next step in evolution.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You’re going on a journey. You just don’t know where yet, and that’s okay because life is like that. You don’t know the ending until it’s over. As Aristotle said, “you can’t really call a man happy until he’s dead.” What’s your happiness? You’re heading in a direction. Is it the right one? You don’t always have to head out on the same path, but if you do—that’s okay too.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Your career path is looking up. But you may actually have to make a decision. You can try the smorgasbord approach and that’s fine. You may notice a drain in energy however, from putting your energy all over the place. It’s probably time to make a decision and choose what you want. You aren’t giving up. You’re choosing what you want in life. That’s a great way to start. 

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Sometimes we let things go and find that a great burden was lifted. If it was the right thing or person, they’ll return with a joy and beauty you can’t imagine. But if it wasn’t meant for us, or it was past the time—we can let them go with peace and grace in our hearts. There’s nothing wrong with letting things go, so that something else may enter, something new and good. 

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You have your hands full. You may not know what to do. Is this the right decision? What if you regret it? You can never know how you’ll feel until you try. You may get a gut reaction that tells you this is the moment or not. Don’t let that self-doubt and mean talk get you down. You know “haters gonna hate.” You can’t help that. Become your own best friend and you’ll never falter.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct.22)

This is an excellent time to be alive. You may have noticed that when you show brightness, others respond. You don’t have to hide from yourself or attack others. They’ll treat you with respect and honor your opinion when you do the same for them. This is the trick, always show compassion even when you don’t feel it. Others will reward you in kind and ten-fold.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You’ve made a decision. You’re making plans now. These are not your everyday casual plans. They’re big and ring true to your life’s purpose. All you can do is show up and act like a professional. You can’t help what others will or won’t do, but you can take responsibility for your own life and be nothing less than you’ve always imagined. You’re capable of anything.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

What will you do? The Sun will leave your sign on Dec. 20. You’ll notice a slight drain in strength as the First Quarter Moon draws near. This is just your fear talking. Don’t give up. Get strong. You’re more than capable. You can’t keep waiting for life to happen. You can’t make a fortune or future by sitting around wishing for something “cool” to happen. It won’t.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

The Sun enters your sign on Dec. 21. This is an excellent time to re-think how you’ve been handling your life. Re-cap and reconsider what you’d like to do. Is this the direction you want? If not, why not? Get out there and start acting with courage and strength. You can go anywhere and do anything you want. You just need to be brave enough to think for yourself.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You may have an uphill battle, but don’t blame the terrain. You’re the one who wanted to tackle Everest in the winter without a coat and the Sahara in summer without a camel. This may not be a bad thing. Did you know well conditioned caravans make it across the desert now? And you need a lot more than a coat for Everest. What does this mean for your life? Only you know.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

How does your life feel right about now? If you think that others have pulled away, they have. It can’t be like it was. But that doesn’t mean you can’t be exactly who you need to be. Let others live how they need to as well. You’re not the center of the universe and no one will treat you like you are. Learn to celebrate the success of others and smile when you win, but don’t gloat.
