Madame G guide to the stars Week of JULY 22

The Sun is in Cancer. The shy crab is an intelligent creature that carries its home and armor on its back. This makes an interesting pairing with Mercury in Leo. Our ideas will become grander with a little focus on the details. Madame G recommends digging-deep and exploring all possibilities. Don’t limit yourself! You can always figure out the logistics later.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Keep learning. Instead of taking big steps, consider taking small ones each day that help you improve. With this daily progress, you’ll notice that there is great improvement and that you reached your goals before you realized it. Take stock of your surroundings and keep heading toward the sun and your future. Don’t look back. You’re past that part.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

If it’s all the same to you, let others have the “right” argument. Instead look for how you can help others. And remember they may be “right” but they’re not happy. Be happy! It’s more fun and easier on the digestion. If you’ve been spinning your wheels or just have grown sick and tired of waiting for someone to green-light or weigh in on your work, be proactive!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This is one heck of a journey. You’re trudging along at the pace that’s good for you. Don’t let others tell you it’s not enough. Only you can judge if this is the right path for you or not. Instead of waiting for fortune to fall from the sky, consider how you could help others as you help yourself. We’re all in this crazy journey together.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Has money has seemed “funny” lately, Cancer? On Friday, cerebral Mercury, which has been reversing through spendthrift Leo and your financial sector since July 7, backflips into your sign and stops the flow of red ink. While you can’t avoid true emergency expenditures, get a handle on your budget and curb unhelpful retail therapy.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You’ve got a long way to go. But, you’ve come a long way, too. When looking ahead, don’t forget to look back and assess where you are. It’s never accurate to just see where you are. You must examine where you’ve come from. In that way, you can accurately judge your situation. Never compare yourself to others (you don’t know their path) just compare to you. It’s enough.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You can’t look to others for self-esteem. You won’t get it. You must look within for purpose, drive, and satisfaction. You won’t find it with others. You can’t pay for it. You can’t inherit it. You can’t buy it. In order to find what you’re looking for, you must confront yourself. This is difficult. You may not like what you see. But, this will allow you to make peace and move on.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct.22)

There is more to life than money. You can’t expect it to solve all of your worries. People are more important. Trust yourself.  For some Libras, big changes are afoot. But for others, the shifts will be more subtle and internal, causing you to deeply ponder your most important relationships and living situation. Kick off this annual phase by cleaning, clearing and decluttering.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Dear Scorpio, you’re intense and those still waters run deep. There are those that may be surprised that a volcano heats the pool. It may burn. Don’t beat yourself up. You are only human. Mistakes will happen and you may lose your cool every now and then. Put your best foot forward and move onward. Everything happens for a reason.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You can do this. Persuasion is a fine skill that requires some work. Don’t look to change their mind. Change their heart. Your “carpe-diem” sign loves to fly by the seat of your pants, but Capricorn is the long-range planner of the zodiac, and this annual event encourages you to look at things through a telescopic lens.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

What is worry worth?  Is it worth your peace-of-mind? What would you get if you gave up worry? What about happiness? We live in a beautiful world with many challenges. Don’t miss out. You deserve to be happy. Full moons bring your efforts to a completion or turning point, and eclipses turbo charge their energy!

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

The universe or whatever you believe in, helps those who help themselves. Even if you live completely off the land, you will still need to plant, harvest, and tend your crops in order to achieve anything. You can! Keep trying. Today and over the next two weeks, you could get some brilliant downloads and have a creative (or spiritual) breakthrough.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You’re worth more than you think. Good luck!  A full moon would be powerful enough, but add in the eclipse, and it might be downright game-changing! Eclipses can usher in turning points or completions and, because they reveal previously hidden dimensions, they often come with an unexpected twist. Over the next two weeks affected by these moonbeams, a group project might reach an impressive conclusion.
