Madame G guide to the stars WEEK OF OCTOBER 22

The Sun enters Scorpio on Oct. 23 and a Full Moon reveals all on Oct. 24. All in all, just in time for Halloween. This should be an interesting few weeks. Passionate and misunderstood Scorpio is the quiet and hidden danger lurking in the deep. Madame G recommends you tread carefully with this one. Be honest! Be true to yourself! Speak softly and carry a large stick.


Aries (March 21-April 19)

The only way to move on is to move forward. You can’t get to your destination if you’re looking in the rearview mirror. Do your best to reach your goals, but don’t get stuck on the details. Jeff Bazos said: “Be clear on vision and flexible on details.” You don’t have to know how you’ll get there, if you keep on trucking on — you’ll get there. Good luck!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

What can you do? Instead of focusing on the details, take a moment to stop and look around. Look at the beauty around you. This is the world we have now, as it is, not as it could be, should be, or will be. This is the world as it is. Understand that you can only change so many things, but those things may very well be significant.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This is the world of the future. There is no other time but now. Stop looking to an unknown world to be perfect. Enjoy what you have. Live, laugh and love! Give real meaning to these three words so they come to life in you. That’s all you really need to know.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Good luck! This is going to be a bumpy ride. But if you keep on pushing, you’ll get there. It just might take a while. But the beauty of not knowing the outcome is that you’ll be able to experience an entire world with fresh eyes. You may discover yourself in ways you’d never imagined. You may in fact see things that are better than your own imagination.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Slowing down is not giving up. Focus on the world around you and enjoy what you see. Slowing down is not giving up. Have you ever noticed how a puppy flops around, out of control in its limbs? Adult dogs have more control. They’re reserved in their movements and take fewer steps. They have the benefit of age and wisdom to help them slow down and enjoy everything. Enjoy!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Don’t give up now! You’re just barely getting started. You can do this. First one step then another step, then another and then keep going. You’ve got this. As Phillip Sweet said, “Stay true to yourself, yet always be open to learn. Work hard, and never give up on your dreams, even when nobody else believes they can come true but you. These are not cliches but real tools you need no matter what you do in life to stay focused on your path.”

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct.22)

The shadow side of any sign is a warning of potentially harmful behavior. Libras have a talent for balance and weighing both sides of an argument. But it’s easy to focus on one side in order to balance rather than seek the truth and actual justice. Don’t get trapped in your own ideas. Give everyone else a chance to speak and go from there.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

The time of Scorpio is NOW. Enjoy! Should you need a little inspiration, try this from Eckhart Tolle: “Always say ‘yes’ to the present moment... Surrender to what is. Say ‘yes’ to life — and see how life starts suddenly to start working for you rather than against you.”

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Do no harm! You can’t avoid not hurting anyone in this life. You may have killed an ant or the bugs that live on your eyelashes, but that doesn’t mean we can’t aim to be better human beings. In fact, if you spend the rest of your life trying to be a better person—you’ll have lived a good life. So yeah, do that.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

The only real fear is inaction. Take action. Don’t allow yourself to get stuck where everyone is stuck. Don’t get lost where everyone is lost. Be a leader. Take responsibility. Take accountability. Think it through and take action. GO!

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You can do this. You can’t give up on others even if you feel like it. They may seem awfully hopeless at the moment, but they are not without their own problems. Take care of yourself and do what you can to help others. You’ll find that life is a lot easier then.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Don’t focus on yourself this month. It’s time you stepped up and took the lead. It might seem scary, but you can do it. Don’t derail things just to be contrary. Do everything with a purpose and you’ll live longer and healthier. Here’s how Albert Schweitzer put it, “The purpose of human life is to serve, and to show compassion and the will to help others.” Good luck!
