Madame G guide to the stars Week of febrUARY 3


The sun is in Aquarius, which is a wonderful time for intellectual pursuits. Your creative efforts require assistance from friends and fellow idea generators. Collaboration works in your favor and will work wonders for your artistic flow. Madame G sees great things ahead. Put your best foot forward. Now is the time to make the most of what you have.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Hammering out the details is not your favorite activity. You’d rather provide the big ideas and communicate plans. Remember that all great journeys begin with the first step. Visionary ideas may come to you in your dreams (or daydreams); and could blossom into full-fledge projects when Mercury moves into Aries.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Dreams are your special friend and indulgence. Lately you feel some strain in that area. Is sleep slow to come? Insomnia is a bear and you’ve barely made it through the day. Check your health and don’t ignore subtle signs. Listen to your body.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Your mind works fast. This week you’ll feel pulled into indecision. Stop warring with yourself, Aries. Your greatest enemy is you. The path you’ve chosen is yours for better or worse - own it. Don’t try to play the “what if” game. Stick to the plan and pour yourself heart and soul into the project. You’ll be glad you did.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You’ll have zero patience for people invading your personal space between now and April 11. Guarding your solo time like a hawk could become your “new normal” during this Mercury cycle. The point of this exercise is to create more room to explore your personal passions. say “yes-please” to adventurous journeys, mind-expanding classes and retreats, and anything that activates your entrepreneurial streak.       

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This week is looking up. Your projects got the go-ahead. Your willpower alone pushes them forward. People just don’t know what to make of you and try to take advantage. You’re fiercely loyal to those you care about. But, don’t waste efforts on the weak-minded. Some people aren’t worth it.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Don’t let your past dictate your future. If you’re not happy, then leave. It’s not up to you to change others. If they can’t grow with you, then it’s not a relationship worth tending. Your fragile heart is afraid. Be brave! You’re stronger than you think.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct.22)

Even if you don’t have kids, consider how your actions will affect the next generation. We’re all vested on this planet. Try spending less money on items you think you want. Buy quality items that you need. Shop local at your friendly farmer’s market. Help your friends and family and learn to survive on less. Your wallet will thank you and so will the planet.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Feeling a bit nostalgic? You’re not usually one to dwell in the past. Lately you’ve missed the good old days. It’s good to look back and reflect just don’t get stuck. Go out and make new and better memories. The best days are always ahead no matter where you’re at in life, or where you’re going. Move forward.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Getting strong while watching TV isn’t impossible. You could run at the gym or at home. There are plenty of shows that teach you how to get stronger and work out. The world is your jungle gym. Start putting exercise into your daily existence. Walk everywhere that you can and jog when possible. You’ll feel great!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

What a month, you’re still reeling. But, then again you usually are, because you’re wound tighter than a 2-year-old with a rubber band. Relax and breathe. It’s a good idea to start adding in yoga to your daily routine. Instead of heading to the local pub for a pint, try a yoga class. You might make a few friends while you’re at it.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

The blessed sun is still in your sign. The days are longer and brighter, too. Have you made progress with yourself? Try working at a soup kitchen. Donate more time and energy to taking action. Help out a political or environmental campaign. Sink your teeth into something that you can believe in and take pride in your work.  

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

The expressive planet will be hovering in your sign for an extra-long time, until April 11. Even so, don’t make any of your brilliant brainstorms permanent, until you make it through Mercury retrograde from Feb. 16 through March 9.
