Imagine not being counted

If you’ve ever done much research on your family history, you’ve likely run across old census records. These yellowed documents—many hand-written with quill and ink by enumerators who went door-to-door to gather the information—were used to determine how many representatives each state had in Congress. Today’s...

Are you ready for this? The New Moon slashes through the night sky on April 15. As you look up at the sky, consider this, even with the moon hidden the stars sparkle free and clear. Instead of getting trapped in the minutiae of things you can’t change, think about all that you do have and what you can change. Madame G wishes you well. Spring-cleaning begins. Refresh! Renew!

 

Aries (March 21-April 19)

What actions are you taking towards success? If you’re an artist, you should make art. If you’re into business, you should read upon business practices here in New Mexico (or wherever you are). Whatever makes your heart jump with feeling and pushes you out of bed in the morning...

Icarus, the boy who flew to high

Icarus is a famous story from Greek mythology.  Icarus was the son of Daedalus, an inventor commissioned by King Minos to build a labyrinth to trap the Minotaur, a half-man; half-bull creature that terrified the island of Crete.  However, Daedalus also knew that King Minos was up to something bad so he warned the king’s daughters of their father’s treachery and was swiftly imprisoned in the very labyrinth he designed to trap the dreaded Minotaur.

On April 8, prepare for Last Quarter Moon. According to Café Astrology, “the Last Quarter Moon is exact when the Sun in Aries forms a square with the Moon in Capricorn.” This often leads to a crisis of conscience. Madame G suggests drinking chamomile and mint tea (for the indigestion). All things come to pass, even a quarter life crisis or whatever applies to you.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

One failure does not in turn make you a failure. It sucks to miss a shot. It’s worse not to try. You may feel down in the dumps for a time, as you recover and that’s understandable. But, don’t stay down for too long. In fact, the best thing to do when you fall off the horse is dust your...

E-mail Print PDF
New Mexico is home to a large Native American population, but business opportunities for Native women can be elusive. The Native Women’s Business Summit — scheduled for April 13-14 at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, 2401 12th Street NW in Albuquerque — aims to change that.

Summit co-founders Vanessa Roanhorse and Stephine Poston want to increase the number of businesses owned by Native women. They believe that by harnessing the strength and support of Native women already in business, others can be encouraged to create their futures through businesses ownership.

The summit is a forum where Native women can network and learn from each other, said Roanhorse. “A lot of...
