Madame G. Guide to the stars WEEK OF Feb. 12 - Feb. 18


A first quarter moon takes center stage on February 15. According to Dana Gerhardt’s blog The Moon Watching series, the quarter periods are not meant for resting: “Squares mean change—or you’ll fall out of rhythm with a turning world.” Madame G suggests changing strategies and working through conflicts. Hang on! It’s going to be a bumpy ride.


Aries (March 21-April 19)

You need purpose in your life. Without it you’re a wandering ship lost in the sea of time. Learn to manage your time wisely. Don’t seek fulfillment outside of yourself. You have everything you need within your soul. Practice living selflessly this week and help those in need. Be thoughtful towards your loved ones. You’ll be glad you did.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You fear financial instability more than anything. It pushes you to work harder while caring for your family’s needs. Often you go without new accessories in order to provide for others. This is an admirable quality. But, you may face some resistance from family who believe your Spartan lifestyle conflicts with their needs. Practice patience they could be right.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Communication may feel disrupted right around February 15. Don’t panic, this is just part of the game. In order to push your projects forward, it’s a good idea to whip out the baked goods. Bribe your team with goodies and push the conflict towards the back. They’ll soon make up over sugar and butter. Do whatever works.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Home is where the heart is, but you may feel like strangling yours. It’s to be expected. Winter usually brings out a little cabin fever in a homebody like you. The sun is staying out longer, so maybe you should too. Try out a new activity. Take up karaoke. You could have some fun and let your mind rest from the conflict. Live a little.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Your projects keep you fulfilled and full of hope. It’s always fun to run your fingers across that new car or horse. Stay within reason where your finances are concerned. Others may not appreciate your games quite as much as you do. Seek out some like-minded enthusiasts and talk your heart out. It’ll do you, and your family, some good.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

It’s brave to head out to work everyday. The daily grind is no joke. It takes guts and brains to do what needs to be done, with a smile, and without strangling anyone. The hardest part is keeping your face straight when someone asks a particularly silly question. You might think, NO! Pets may not use the indoor facilities. Keep your Mona Lisa smile on and remember we’re all worm food in the end. And their little dog too…

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct.22)

Gear envy is real. You have it over quite a few things, such as that new apple watch or a lovely new Xbox One, with the terabyte hard drive—of course! But, your fiancé may suggest taking a break from spending. Try to reign in your impulses and do your best to seek fulfillment in nature. Beauty is all around you and you should enjoy it.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Your love of learning new things is legendary. Sometimes you’re just like a bloodhound on the scent of a new adventure. You’re also relentless. But, in true Scorpio fashion you WILL, therefore—IT IS. You may face opposition and challenges and Madame G salutes your fortitude. Remember the long game and don’t get caught up in any petty squabbles.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Your heaven is an ice-cold beer with your favorite game on, or a show. For you life is like a dream. But, sometimes you wake up and it’s a nightmare. Get up and move around. Sitting on the couch all day is NOT healthy. If you’re bored, then find something new to do because only the boring are bored for long. Live it up!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Your searching deep within yourself for the meaning of life and you’re coming up short. It’s important to nurture your spiritual development. But, you can’t always go outside of yourself for help. Lean on a friend, church, or spiritual practice to get you through and use the momentum to push you forward. It’s exciting. Have fun with it and don’t fight yourself.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Romantic love is not always the answer. It’s a beautiful idea, but the fairytales don’t finish the sentence. It’s the end… of the story. It’s not the end of life. As with most things in life, find your balance. You may find love with a pet, a friend, or an idea. Learn to balance the needs of the body, heart, soul, and mind and you’ll experience peace.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Your demands are not being taken seriously and there’s a good reason for that. Unless you’re a General or a Queen, demands won’t get you very far especially with family. They love you. But, someone who’s always making demands without listening carefully in return—isn’t very lovable. Let go of your animosity and breath in the fresh air. Okay?
