Madame G guide to the stars WEEK OF NOVEMBER 19

E-mail Print PDF

In this life there are no free rides. You can’t wait for the world to hand you the perfect answer to the song, or for the lottery to strike you in the eye on Friday, the day you need it. Instead, Madame G recommends you look toward the future, appreciate what you have, and learn to let go of the past. You only get one shot at living the best life possible. Live well today.


Aries (March 21-April 19)

Stop trying so hard. The only true enemy you’ll ever have is yourself. You’re capable of so much, but your self-doubt is the virus holding you back. In this world, you can afford to make any enemy of everyone except yourself. You can choose to live with yourself as a friend or hate who and what you are. The choice is yours. Your family needs you to make the right one.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Be true to yourself, without hurting others. Often you may hear people exclaim: “It’s the truth.” Well, the truth doesn’t mean you get to be an asshole. You may gently inform people of your opinion, but remember that like an “asshole” everyone has one and is entitled to one. There is a time and place for standing your ground and a time and place to let go. Keep trying.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Good luck! Remember that the only real fear is fear itself. Do your best, you’ve got this. Take it from Nelson Mandela: “I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.”

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You can’t expect others to understand you — if you don’t understand yourself. You can’t make anyone want to understand you either. You may discover your approach is too strong or hard to swallow. This may require you to back off or maybe it means you need to find new people to talk with. In the end, are you growing or not? If you are, great! If not, try again.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Hello, Dear Leo! How are you? Don’t let this world drag you down. You know what you can accomplish and what you can’t. If life throws you an adventure of a lifetime, take it up on its offer. Never discourage exploration in yourself. One of the many joys in the world is learning to take up the call to action when it’s offered. But to do this, you must be well rested and ready.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Keep up the good work. Keep trying and move forward with a fresh set of eyes and the wisdom from what you’ve already accomplished. Rachel Joyce has these words — can you see yourself in them? “Beginnings could happen more than once or in different ways. You could think you were starting something afresh, when actually what you were doing was carrying on as before. He had faced his shortcomings and overcome them and so the real business of walking was happening only now.”

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct.22)

Life is an adventure and you can accomplish anything. Don’t give up on yourself and take care of what needs to be taken care of. You are heading for the right answer. Show your faith in others by allowing them to do what they need to do. You are better than you think, but you’re also more fallible than you realize. It’s a crazy conundrum. Good luck! You’re not alone.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Give what you get. Don’t put up with shit. You’ve kept yourself back in order to prevent others from feeling bad about themselves. Let it go. Be who you are, and don’t be afraid to let your bright light shine. Your gifts are needed in this world. Don’t shy away from them. Embrace your gifts and everything that you are in order to be who you need to be in the future. GO!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Madame G here will make this short and sweet this week. Let go of hate. Embrace taking action. Time is running out. You must make your decision soon. Take a breath, believe in yourself. Go for it.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Your heart is in the right place and you deserve the accolades. In the end, are the rewards enough for the amount of pain you’ve been through? Only you can decide if it’s best or let go of the past and aim for a better future. Life is beautiful. Learn to forgive. Don’t get trapped in what could have been. Make the most out of what happens here today and forever. Good luck!

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Give your life over to what you feel. It’s not the end of the world — if you’re happy. You can make others happy, too. Sometimes, people are afraid that if they’re too happy it takes away from others. But it doesn’t. In fact, be happier and spread that same happiness around like a damn virus. Your friends need to be happy and so does the entire world.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

I’ll be brief, fishy face, so keep it together kid. It’s going to be alright, but it might take a while. Read a book while you wait. Good old Ernest Hemingway had these wise words: “The world breaks everyone, and afterward, many are strong at the broken places.”
