Madame G guide to the starsWEEK OF JULY 9


Enjoy a restfully out of balance Last Quarter Moon on July 6. This is a time for discomposure. Each month we are faced with the “in-between” moments between the waxing and waning moons. Madame G recommends that you sit back and enjoy the process. When you’re committed to the outcome, you lose the journey. You need both to succeed, whatever that means for you.


Aries (March 21-April 19)

Focus on yourself. You have much to gain and offer. Don’t lose yourself in the process of improvement. You’re capable of more than you think. This is the time to put thought and focus into your intentions. In order to live the life of your dreams, you must put thoughts and work into it. There is no way around putting in the work. You must do, in order to get there. Keep trying.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Stop guessing! You don’t know what’s around the corner and that’s a good thing. It’s brand new and totally bright. Madame G recommends that you put down the map and open up iTunes. Rework how you go to work. Shake up the status quo of your own life by taking time to simmer and think about what makes you tick. All we have is a little moment in time. Enjoy!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

What’s the purpose of life? If you don’t know the answer, you’re in good company. Many people are searching. But, you’ve discovered something priceless—yourself. You have all the answers in your heart and soul. There is no reason to put more focus into those that don’t care about your future. Instead focus on the ones you love and who love you in return. That’s enough! It is.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Heartache takes many forms. It can be in the shape of rejection at work or play. We pretend that these things don’t matter, but they do. However, your worth is not determined by how many people acknowledge you or even praise you. Fame and popularity are fickle friends. They won’t stick around when the going gets tough or when you have a tummy ache. 

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

“All the good doctors are in the Gulag. If there are any doctors in Moscow, they’re not good doctors.” If you haven’t seen the “Death of Stalin,” Madame G recommends it. It’s an intensely dark comedy with Steve Buscemi. If you’re not a fan of dark comedy, take a long walk and enjoy the sunshine. Now is the most important time in your life because we are here, now. Enjoy!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

“Because I’m the boss (or parent)” is not a good response. This is a sign of a bad boss! This is also the worst form of parenting—you’re kids are NOT listening to you. If you believe “might, make’s right,” you’ll encounter problems with those around you. That is the language of dictators not leaders. People in a free nation, of free people, don’t follow dictators. We revolt.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct.22)

What is to be done? If you don’t know, don’t worry—no one does. Now is the time to enjoy what we have and learn from our mistakes. Instead of digging deep into what we already know, consider expanding outward. You don’t have all the answers and you’re definitely not always right. It would be wise to consult with your colleagues and peers. Ask for the truth.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

When you say “no” to one thing, you’re saying “yes” to something else. It’s probably something that you want to do as well. You don’t need to keep running towards the status quo, if it’s not working for you. You have everything to find the best position for yourself that you can. All it takes is a little effort and forward momentum, to create the luck that you want to see. Go NOW!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Supposedly, it takes ten thousand hours to become proficient at something. There is a great deal of debate about what type of hours, whether focused or any type will do. But all that aside, what are you a pro at? Everyone has that one little thing that they’re good at. Maybe their friends seek them out for editing advice or research. Whatever the case, find yours. The world needs you.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Don’t lose yourself in the job. You have a whole beautiful life to live. You may require it for money or significance, but you are more than the career. Instead of focusing on all the work stuff, what about the other part of your life? Kids out of the house? Great! Make a workout room or an art room or both. Don’t be a slave to what you’ve always known. Set yourself free for once.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

“Never give up! Never surrender!” That’s from the cheesy film: Galaxy Quest. It’s fun and describes this week well. Don’t assume you know everything about anything. Even the things you have always seen will have secrets hidden beneath their depths. You may find that your parents, bosses, and coworkers have incredible stories to tell. Keep digging. Life is full of gems.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

So, this is life. You may be a bit surprised by what you’re finding. It’s not all orange groves and clover. But, that doesn’t have to be a bad thing. We have regrets in our lives and it’s best we learn to live with it. However, if you’re stuck in regret, you have only one option: keep trying. Go out and try to do something interesting. It’s better to regret the first half, than the last. GO!
