Madame G guide to the stars Week of JUNE 24

E-mail Print PDF
Madame recommends that you sit down and write out all the wonderful things you’d like to do this summer. Reevaluate your life. What do you want to change? What do you want to keep? Expand your mind. Give in to your dreams and don’t censor yourself.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Sometimes it’s tough to be the best. You may have high demands for yourself and your loved ones. But, it’s important to stop and reflect. What are you pushing for? What do you need to accomplish in your life? If you’re feeling unbalanced and out of focus, it’s time to sit down and think about what you need in this world. Enjoy yourself. It’s a new season with new possibilities.

Celebrating Hard-Working Men and Women Who Help Keep Communities Clean

Every week the big green garbage truck rumbles into the neighborhood and the mechanical spectacle of its hydraulic arm grabbing, lifting, dumping and returning trash and recycling carts to the curb commences.

This commonplace show is accompanied by a brief symphony of safety warning beeps and the crunching of trash being compacted before the driver moves on to the next home.

June 17 marks the start of National Garbage Man Week. There will be no...

On Monday, April 29, 2019, I observed a dog that was killed in the middle of the bridge that leads to the Navajo reservation on Highway 566, an 11-mile-long state road that begins its southern terminus at NM 118 and Historic U.S. Route 66 in Church Rock, and the northern terminus is at the end of state maintenance by the Church Rock Mine.

I reported it to the City of Gallup, McKinley County Roads Management Department, the Navajo Nation Department of Transportation (the NN DOT phone line was “out of service”), and the NM Department of Transportation.

Ironically, the McKinley County Roads Management Department and the Navajo Nation Department of Transportation were having a...

Madame G guide to the stars Week of JUNE 17

E-mail Print PDF
Dear Reader, enjoy a heaven-sent week. Allow this time to enter unencumbered into the world of light, with no external expectations. This will either be a time of great healing or great suffering. The choice is yours. You may wish to rethink a few things. What is worth fighting for, and what is not? Madame G wishes you well on your journey of life.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Your heart is suffering. Pain is entrenched in your spirit and chokes you, as it holds you down. You can’t decide which way is up or down. Your instincts may tell you to inflict pain on others, but this does not end suffering for you. In fact, all it does is create more suffering for yourself and those around you...
