Madame G guide to the stars WEEK OF DECEMBER 17


Enjoy a First Quarter Moon Dec. 17. Madame G suggests you “hold on to your butts” — it’s going to be a wild ride. This is the time. There is no other time, but now. Stop waiting for the right moment or for someone to save you. Your life is yours to live. As we head into the consumer season, reflect on all the wonderful things you love about your life. That’s joy!

Aries (March 20- April 19)

Life your life! If you’re angry every time something doesn’t go according to plan — this will be a long, miserable experience. Instead, reflect on what you’ve learned. Appreciate the people the universe brings into your life and do your best with each passing day. You’re more than your accomplishments and more than your past. Keep moving forward with a purpose. Good luck!

Taurus (April 20- May 20)

Don’t give up on yourself. Keep pushing forward and share your love with others. You don’t have to be a pushover, but remember compassion isn’t weakness. Your greatest strength is in showing others how to live fully and with conviction, without hurting anyone. You’re a guest performer in others’ lives — let them save themselves. Do your own thing — save yourself.

Gemini (May 21- June 20)

Be careful about the judgments you make when you enter someone else’s story. Remember, you only ever enter someone else’s story in the middle and during dialogue. So keep your initial judgments to yourself until you’ve had a chance to evaluate. Once you’ve had time to OBJECTIVELY test your gut, then you can go ahead and take whatever action is necessary.

Cancer (June 21-July 20)

Live free or die trying. You can make the choice to live well or not. It’s your life, but the choice is up to you. Live well! Good old Voltaire said this way back when: “God gave us the gift of life; it is up to us to give ourselves the gift of living well.”

Leo (July 22- Aug. 22)

Keep showing up. You may lose faith in yourself, but you can do more than you’ve ever imagined. Others will catch up with you and show you they care too. But, when people turn away they may have a reason completely unrelated to you. You’re more than this or any one incident. Give people the room, they need and show them you care.

Virgo (Aug. 23- Sept. 22)

Keep pushing toward your dreams and you can change anything you want. In your life, this is the world you can imagine for yourself. Don’t keep trying to live in a world you’ve created — instead, live in the world you were born into.

Libra (Sept. 23- Oct. 22)

Don’t forget who you are. Be kind. You’re more than you think and others know it. The wonderfully wise Maya Angelo put it like this: “One isn't necessarily born with courage, but one is born with potential. Without courage, we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency. We can't be kind, true, merciful, generous or honest.” It takes courage to be kind, and it takes kindness to be courageous.

Scorpio (Oct. 23- Nov. 21)

Leave it to the experts. Just kidding, that’s a stupid idea — they’ll just mess it up. Instead, focus your energy on yourself. It’s time to reflect on what you NEED. Don’t even worry about what you want out of your life — you need to focus on your needs. You can’t please all the people! You need to handle what you need to do — and do it.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 20)

Some people aren’t on your side, but you need to learn to trust yourself. In your life, the world will show you many powerful things and you can choose to ignore them or not. It’s up to you to live as you’ve always imagined. Give yourself the greatest give that you can — trust yourself to make the right decisions and have what it takes to succeed. Good luck!

Capricorn (Dec. 21- Jan 19)

Believe in yourself and show your love. If you feel lonely, do your best to show your friends and family that you care. Life is easier than you think, if you show love to those around you. Remember these words from Madeleine Petsch about the most difficult ones to love (who need it the most) — “The people who are bullying you, they're insecure about who they are, and that's why they're bullying you. It never has to do with the person they're bullying. They desperately want to be loved and be accepted, and they go out of their way to make people feel unaccepted so that they're not alone.”

Aquarius (Jan. 20- Feb. 18)

You’re more than your parts. You’re not a robot. You can create anything that you want and change your life for the better. Don’t distress yourself and do better than you ever imagined. But, you must let go. You must let your mind wander away from what it knows. You must delve into the unknown and explore as you go. Don’t be afraid of what you see — for it is you.

Pisces (Feb. 19- March 19)

You can do this. You can do what is right without hurting anyone. Don’t give up yourself. Keep trying to do the best you can. If you fail in your endeavor, try, try, try again. Your life is the greatest gift you have. Stop deluding yourself. Life is not a game.
