Madame G guide to the starsWEEK OF OCTOBER 29


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)

Now is the time to unleash the Kraken. Be yourself and don’t forget those around you. Your love is as expansive as the ocean, and you’re capable of anything you put your mind to. Don’t leap before you walk, but do take action. The only force stopping you is the monkey in your brain pushing you away from those you love. Try your best each day and give what you can.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Stay humble! Author Alice Walker put it like this: “‘Thank you’ is the best prayer that anyone could say. I say that one a lot. Thank you expresses extreme gratitude, humility, understanding.” Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Stay woke! Just kidding, do your best and enjoy the fruits of your labor. Don’t take no sh-t! You’re a good person with a kind heart. You are always trying to be a better person, and now is the time to enjoy living a good life. Don’t give up. The path to virtue is a long and arduous task. You’re capable of so much more than you thought. Do as the Little Engine That Could: Keep on going.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Your heart is in the right place. Consider the feelings of those you affect with your words. Learn to empathize with those around you, whether they’re close or not. Maya Angelou said this: “What humility does for one is it reminds us that there are people before me. I have already been paid for. And what I need to do is prepare myself so that I can pay for someone else who has yet to come but who may be here and needs me.”

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Got health? We don’t always appreciate what we have until we lose it. But just because you’re slowing down doesn’t mean you’re done. As they say: “It ain’t over until the fat lady sings.”  Learn to appreciate what you have. The world is a big, beautiful place. Oh, the places you will go! You’ll discover there is more to life than the limiting behaviors you allowed before. Have fun!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Keep trying! Every day, try to put in just a little bit more extra effort. Give it your all and keep trying. But you don’t have to give it all the effort at once. Instead of quitting smoking cold-turkey, try having one less cigarette a day until you can live without having one. This may take you a while. It may be a scary and epic journey. But you’ll be so glad you took it.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct.22)

Don’t give up on your heart. You’re capable of more than petty superficial love. The passion in your heart is bursting to get out. Let it go. You don’t have to be perfect to receive love—you just have to be willing to be vulnerable with what’s in your heart. BE FREE! Let go of the limiting believes. Give love a change. Good luck!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Be kind to yourself Scorpio! We’re all in this together. Keep trying to do your best and put your best foot forward. Show compassion to those around you. And do random acts of kindness to your loved ones. You could surprise your partner with a note and a homemade lunch. Pour your love into their soul and let them know how happy you are they’re in your life. Do good!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

So far so good! You’ve come a long way and you’re continuing the fight. Don’t lose yourself in the struggle. You’re capable of so much more than you think. Keep trying. Roy T. Bennett said this: “The one who falls and gets up is stronger than the one who never tried. Do not fear failure but rather fear not trying.”

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

What are you waiting for? Stop waiting for life to come in and save you from yourself. Only you can save yourself. Life is good if you’re willing to live. Nothing has to be perfect in order for you to enjoy your life. In fact, you may notice that now is the perfect time to appreciate the life you have before it’s over. Keep trying.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Stop freaking out! You’ve got this! The wise Confucius gave these words: “It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.” Do not stop, do not stop, do not stop.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Truth be told, you’re crazy, and truth be told I’m lying! Well, if that’s you, just keep on doing your best. This is a crazy strange little world and we’ve only got a little bit of time to enjoy it. Do your best. Live! Laugh! Love! Don’t worry about what you haven’t done and maybe won’t ever do. Open your heart to who you can be, even if you never imagined a perfect world. Enjoy!
