Madame G guide to the stars WEEK OF January 26

E-mail Print PDF

Once in a blue moon… On Jan. 31, we’ll experience the second Full Moon in January (the first was on Jan. 1). This will also be a Full Lunar Eclipse. The Moon represents our emotional state, so be prepared to face your deepest fears. Madame G recommends that you act like a warrior and face those fears with strength and bravery. You’re primed and ready. It’s time.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Don’t let petty things hold you back. It speaks highly of your intellect and personality that you want to be the best and do the best job you can. But we’re all human beings and liable to make mistakes. How we handle these mistakes is the greatest show of strength. You can prove your greatness by showing humility and learning from the process. Keep asking: how can I do better?

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

It can’t be easy to hold the burden of the world. Do yourself a favor and let it all go. Release yourself of this damaging self-neglect. You don’t get any more points for martyrdom. You can help others while taking care of yourself. Take a moment to breathe and consider your dreams for a moment. All it takes is a little patience and the time to think. You have 5 minutes, do it.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You may find that the energy right now is both terrifying and exciting. That’s dualism for you. And that’s life. You may be a little afraid of following your heart, but you know it’s going to be an awesome show if you do. So what are you waiting for? Get up off your butt and start rapping, singing, writing, or inventing. Start doing what makes your heart sing with joy. Why wait?

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Is that the freak show? Well, you should know. You are the King/ Queen of all you see and you’re damn proud of it. You may be a unique and singular sort of person, but you know your strengths and weaknesses. The only reason people think you’re borderline scary is that you make crazy look good. Well done. Enjoy this week. You’ve earned it.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

What’s up doc? You know those people who’re grasping for everything—they’re hilarious. You accomplish more in a day than most in a year. For that reason, you’ve earned a break. Bust out the horses or take a drive in your favorite truck. Smell that fresh cold air and have a good laugh at the expense of those tottering fools reaching for gold when you have the sun.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

It’s better to live the life of your dreams in the gutter than live well in someone else’s hell. There’s always a balance, the choice is rarely clear… But, if you have to choose, Madame G hopes you chose your own heaven. You don’t need to live like everybody else in order to be happy unless that’s what you want. Just be you. You’re enough exactly as you are.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct.22)

You can’t wait for the next expedition. Will it be to the moon or across the ocean? Only you know the details. This life is for living and you can make the choice to live well or waste. Either way, we will cease to exist, so it’s better to live how you’ve always wanted. It’s important to balance your desires and consider what’s best for you. Needs and wants aren’t always the same.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

It’s amazing what quiet time and reflection solves. You don’t need more—you need less. Consider the less is more philosophy. Instead of grasping for every shiny thing learn how to maximize your best assets and roll with it. You’ll never be a perfect individual, but you do some things very well. Take those and start living the dream, pay others to handle your weak spots.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Where will this lead? Are you sure that it’s the best course of action? It’s always advisable to be the best parent, spouse, or friend you can be. But don’t let that get in the way of your dreams. One should enhance the other. You may not be a pro ball player, but you can teach your kids how to pitch. You may not see Mars, but you can teach science. All is well that ends well.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Get creative! What’s holding you back? You don’t have to stay stuck in a rut—just clear out the mess and go for it. You don’t need another thing to make you happy. You can create worlds within the walls of your home. Create what you’d like to see in the world. Express yourself with words, paint, or papier-mâché. Don’t limit yourself.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

What’s this crazy life about? What’s your purpose? Your heading for a breakthrough and it will get harder before it gets easier. You can lead others while you’re at it. Just don’t be afraid of the responsibility. You’re more than capable and others will enjoy your quiet and resolute strength. This is the time for living to your fullest. You can totally do this.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

So much to learn and so little time…Stop asking if others approve of your appearance. If you love your new haircut and color, then it’s a win. Don’t listen to the haters. Tell them to back off! They’ll always stand in the way of your happiness. The only one who needs to approve of you and your life is you. If you don’t like something, change it. If you love it—great! Do it.
