Madame G guide to the stars WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 3

Madame G suggests you pay attention to the upcoming Sun Square Moon on Sept. 2. This Last Quarter Moon occurs in Virgo. Virgos are intelligent and may be meticulous to a fault. For other signs, this is an opportune time to refine skills and firm up areas where you may be neglectful or even sloppy. Take pride in your appearance and yourself this week. Virgos, ease up!


Aries (March 21-April 19)

What do you do well? Everyone has something either big or small they do very well. But don’t compare this talent to anyone else. Therein lies defeat. Instead, consider how well you do this thing and how you continually improve. It’s not about doing better than anyone else—it’s about having confidence in your skills as a human being. Gain freedom by trusting yourself.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You can’t know everything. It may seem obvious, but some people spend their entire lives under the impression they can. Be a wise fool, if you must, and enjoy what you have by accepting who you are. This is a good thing. In the age of social media, it’s easy to get trapped in the “haves” and “have nots” but our time here is precious. Enjoy it while it lasts.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Stop overthinking! You can’t make a good decision based on a bad bet. But you do need to take action at some point, even if it’s just to walk away. Remember, the key to any negotiation in life, work, or play is the ability to walk away. You have a choice. If you don’t feel this is ethical, moral or good, don’t do it. But if you feel it’s good but scary, maybe look into it. Have fun, too!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Life is not a mess; it’s messy. There are many shades of gray including dusty brown and pink. Examine a sunset. Do you notice how blue makes up that golden brown? Maybe you notice that a touch of smoke on a mountain creates a vibrant fuchsia. Don’t get so caught up in the details that you lose the beauty of the moment. But notice how things play together in harmony.  

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Your birthday month has passed, and you’re now in the time of Virgo. This Sun sign may annoy you at times. Your big, open and happy personality may feel starkly contrasted with the sharper more reserved Virgo. Don’t despair. We all have so much to learn from each other. Look deeply at this sign and study what it does well. You may have something to learn from this quiet one.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Your time has come again. You may feel the rush of energy as you notice things in more vivid detail. But ease up a bit, dear Virgo. You have miles and miles to go before you sleep. Take a moment to relax and spend time with loved ones. If you find yourself tensing up, reach for a cup of peppermint tea and breathe deeply. You time has come. Don’t rush it. Enjoy!

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct.22)

Don’t be an attention hog. If you find yourself overwhelmed, don’t rush into the room and destroy the emotional wellbeing of others. Consider this, if you’re a manager or parent, don’t act like a seagull, flying into a room and crapping all over everything. Instead, focus on what you’re doing. Yes, you’re stressed, but your emotions as a leader affect others. Be careful. Get some rest.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You can’t stay where you are forever. Sometimes, you need to make a massive change to get the results you want. But as the steady and thoughtful creature you are, you’ve thought about every angle. You’ve planned out your next moves, and you’re ready for the next step. The only thing you need to solve is what you will do next. Will you wait or will you fly? Fly free Scorpio!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Time waits for no man or woman. So the next time you wake up, jump out of bed. Greet the sun with joy and peace. Do whatever you must that day with purpose and strength. You may not be the leader of the free world, but if just one person depends upon you—you’re a hero. Don’t minimize who you are because of the size of your paycheck or your lifestyle. Good luck!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

What can you do? Instead of focusing on all the wrong things that have nothing to do with you—focus on yourself. Take a long hard look in the mirror. Are you who you want to be? If not, why the hell not? You have this one life to give and receive from others. Take a deep breath and ask yourself what you’d like to see for yourself. You can do more than you think.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

What’s in it for you? This is an important question to ask because no one will ask it for you. You must ask yourself if what you’re doing adds any value to your own life. If it doesn’t, you may need to stop and reevaluate. This is always difficult. You may piss a bunch of people off. But you must live with you and the end result. You can do this. Good luck!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

If you’ve pushed everyone away and find yourself alone—check the common factor—you. It’s a tough discussion, but it’s a valuable lesson. After a while, you may find that people are less and less inclined to allow you to keep bouncing back. That’s because they’ve reached their limit. You may need to allow even more time and remain steadier in their presence so that they can trust you again. Don’t force it.
