Madame G guide to the stars WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 1


The Full Corn Moon also known as the Harvest Moon, provides enough light for farmers to finish their crops while enjoying the light of the moon. Now, we live in virtual day light at any time of day and don’t require moon light. However, Madame G recommends you pay attention to Sept. 6 for you or your neighbors may very well begin howling. Enjoy the end of Summer!


Aries (March 21-April 19)

Perhaps it didn’t turn out as you imagined. But, that doesn’t mean it’s over. In fact, life can be so much better than you’ve ever imagined. As Jon Lennon said: “Life is what happens when you’re busy making plans.” Don’t get stuck in what life isn’t so that you miss out on what it is. You’re capable of so much more than you think. And cut your family a little break too.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You may look through the window of life and see that everyone else has presents on Christmas and you don’t. But, consider that you’re merely looking into the window. You don’t know the full story. You may not see mother works three jobs all year and never sees her children. Perhaps grandfather contributes more than anyone knows. Just don’t judge yourself by others.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You’re wondering how you possibly got here. Well, it was by choice. You may not have decided to land right where you are, but other choices took you here. Stop beating yourself up for this. Consider that you’re still creeping forward even if it feels at a snail’s pace. This is still the direction forward. The only fear is standing still and getting stuck. Any progress is good.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

“Wherever you go, there you are.” You may feel as if the world is passing you by. Don’t judge yourself by their standards. The only opinion you need is your own. It’s wonderful to have helping hands from those around you, much less an understanding of the minds of others. But, this is really just filler in a very loud world. Use your best judgement to get where you’re going.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You may feel a little world weary. And that’s okay. It’s important to follow our dreams and escape to the world of possibilities. Pablo Picasso said: “The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.” When you feel the grime of the world tainting your soul, take time for self-care. Don’t just feel the void with mindless diversions. Seek out your purpose and share.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

No one can define your purpose except for you. Forgiveness is the heart of the human experience. You may feel deprived of something great, but remember what Helen Keller said: “What I am looking for is not out there, it is in me.” You can never find anything greater than your experience outside of yourself. When you experience with others it’s a bonus.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct.22)

So, you’re reaching for greatness and coming up a little short. Don’t give up. You may need to readdress your strategy or look for those who are succeeding in ways you’re not. In fact, you may want to look around at those people you’ve discounted. Are they your greatest assets? Perhaps they’re gems in the rough. Whatever the case, don’t give up. You’re so close.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

The only proof you need that life exists beyond this planet—rests in your own heart. You’re only limited by your own imagination. Stop wasting time living the life some else planned for you. Take hold and take action. Start writing that book, take those pictures, or start that business. Whatever your life goals, there is someone out there who needs what you’re offering.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You’re cutting it close. You may have decided on a set of actions that appear normal. Are they? Don’t get stuck in a rut. Take action for what it is and get the ball rolling. You may not live the life you’ve always thought you wanted. But, it’s your mess and you created it. You might as well enjoy it and all the fruit that it produces. Go ahead and enjoy your time on Earth now.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You can’t depend on others to take care of your problems. Don’t rely on someone else’s expertise. If you don’t understand the problem learn about it. If you don’t know the answer look for it. The only way to learn is to try and do. You may fail at everything, but at least you tried. You will only have yourself to blame and thank for taking action.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Remember these wise words: “we could never learn to be brave and patient, if there were only joy in the world.” Helen Keller was an exceptional human being. All of us can learn from her life challenges and triumphs. Stop wasting time with lamentations. You likely will not get all you think you want. But, life is so much deeper and richer than that. Look within yourself. It’s there.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

It’s up to you to get there. You have a long journey ahead and it may take all your effort. But, this is the challenge of a lifetime. Get the ball rolling and take on the tiger bare handed. You don’t want to be stupid with the challenge. Life has a way of throwing challenges our way that only we can conquer. So, pull up the big girl panties and take charge.
