E-mail Print PDF
Over the past few years the PERA Board has spun out of control and neglected its fiduciary duties.

The Sun is in Cancer. The shy crab is an intelligent creature that carries its home and armor on its back. This makes an interesting pairing with Mercury in Leo. Our ideas will become grander with a little focus on the details. Madame G recommends digging-deep and exploring all possibilities. Don’t limit yourself! You can always figure out the logistics later.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Keep learning. Instead of taking big steps, consider taking small ones each day that help you improve. With this daily progress, you’ll notice that there is great improvement and that you reached your goals before you realized it. Take stock of your surroundings and keep heading toward the sun and...

Everything changes. This is a beautiful tragedy and a blessing. On July 16, we will experience a Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn. Prepare to let go of old patterns that no longer serve. Madame G recommends you trust the process and journal about your experience. Not a writer? Try a video diary instead. Remember, you don’t have to post it online. It can be just for you.


Aries (March 21-April 19)

Decisions, decisions, decision. You’ve made good ones and bad ones. But, you’re navigating how best to handle each and every situation you come across. It’s not always easy. In fact, it’s downright hard. You can only do so much at one time. Be patient! You may feel the...
