Madame G guide to the stars WEEK OF NOVEMBER 5

E-mail Print PDF
Got New Moon? On Nov. 7, you will. Full Moons bring out the crazies, but New Moons invent them. Madame G recommends you take time to reflect, for the “unexamined life is not worth living.” Even if you don’t believe Aristotle, trust yourself to know what’s good for you. As we head toward the end of the year, start...

Denying Jesus

“Peter again denied it [knowing Jesus], and at once the rooster crowed.” John 18:27 (ESV)

While in the upper room during the Passover Celebration, just before Jesus was arrested and crucified, Jesus predicted that Peter would deny him. You would think that just hours later, Peter would remember this and be able to avoid denying Jesus.

Peter had heard the words of Jesus recorded by the apostle Matthew in chapter 10 of his gospel, “So everyone who acknowledges me before men, I will acknowledge before my Father who is in heave, but whoever denies me before men, I also will deny before my Father who is in Heaven.” (Matt 10:32-33).

Peter denied Jesus, not just once, not just...

Enjoy a Last Quarter Moon this Halloween. Don’t worry! It’s not super scary — just your run-of-the-mill, out of whack, Addams Family scary. But don’t let those Adams fool you. They might be super cute and sweet, but they were a little nutty. Madame G recommends you grab your friends and head out or in for some good, old-fashioned fun. Happy Halloween!

 

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Borrowing money to start or build a business entails taking risk — not just for the lender but also the borrower. But unless the entrepreneur has rich relatives or massive savings to draw on, securing capital usually requires multiple loans over many years to start and expand a business.

Daven Lee has tapped into New Mexico’s many small-business resources over nearly two decades to turn Love + Leche from a home-based maker of handmade soaps and lotion bars — made with milk from her own goat herd and other natural products — for retail sale into a viable year-round business that gets about half its revenue from wholesale markets throughout the U.S. and in Mexico, England and...

Letter to the Editor

E-mail Print PDF
I am a mother and human rights advocate living in Gallup, New Mexico, a community struggling with addressing the legacy of uranium mining and the increasing impacts of climate change. As such, I constantly worry about the air my kids breathe and the environment they will inherit so I find it unacceptable that Acting Administrator Wheeler is weakening key parts of EPA’s rules to reduce methane pollution from the oil and gas industry.

With the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change recent report, Wheeler’s efforts to create a huge loophole for oil and gas companies amounts to an attack against humanity as it opens the door for these industries to pollute our atmosphere with...
