Madame G guide to the stars Week of JULY 29


Have you been hesitant to start new projects? As the summer flies by, feel free to start any new projects on July 31, a New Moon. This is the perfect opportunity to set a new goal or begin the work. In the old days, farmers would plant their crops by the New Moon and reap by the Full Moon. Madame G recommends you allow your energies to build until then. Have fun!

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Life is not a mess, it’s messy. There are many shades of gray, including dusty brown and pink. Examine a sunset. Do you notice how blue makes up that golden brown?  Don’t get so caught up in the details that you lose the beauty of the moment. Notice how things play together in harmony. Keep working toward your goal and you will get there.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Stop overthinking! You can’t make a good decision based on a bad bet. But, you do need to take action at some point, even if it’s just to walk away. Remember, the key to any negotiation in life, work or play, is the ability to walk away. You have a choice. If you don’t feel this is ethical, moral, or good, don’t do it. But, if you feel it’s good but scary, maybe look into it. Have fun, too!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You can’t know everything. It may seem obvious, but some people spend their entire lives under the impression that they can. Be a wise fool if you must, and enjoy what you have by accepting who you are. This is a good thing. In the age of social media it’s easy to get trapped in the haves and have nots, but our time here is precious. Enjoy it while it lasts.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

If you’ve pushed everyone away and find yourself alone - check the common factor - you. It’s a tough discussion, but it’s a valuable lesson. After a while, you may find that people are less and less inclined to allow you to keep bouncing back. That’s because they’ve reached their limit. You may need to allow even more time and remain steadier in their presence, so that they can trust you again. Don’t force it.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Let go and feel free for the Sun is in Leo, the mighty lion. Let your roar be heard across the mountains and across the skies. Open up your heart and let your spirit dance. Now is the time to put attention on what you can change and control. Don’t look outside of yourself.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Fear not, dear Virgo! You are free to make whatever choice you feel you should make. Don’t hesitate. Put your best foot forward and do what you can to live your best life. The world is your oyster. Put your dancing shoes on and do what you want. Now is the time to live the life of your dreams. You can do this!

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct.22)

Don’t be an attention hog. If you find yourself overwhelmed don’t rush into the room and destroy the emotional wellbeing of others. Consider this, if you’re a manager or parent don’t act like a seagull, fly into a room and leave droppings all over everything. Instead, focus on what you’re doing. Yes, you’re stressed, but your emotions as a leader affect others. Be careful. Get some rest.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Dear Scorpio, if you’ve made a move, great! Don’t look back and torture yourself with what used to be. Enjoy that now is the time to keep moving. Do your best and don’t hesitate to run. You are the master of your own destiny. Do what you can. Move forward with bravery and courage. Keep reaching for the stars.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Time waits for no man or woman. So, the next time you wake up, jump out of bed. Greet the sun with joy and peace. Do whatever you must that day with purpose and strength. You may not be the leader of the free world, but if just one person depends upon you - you’re a hero. Don’t minimize who you are because of the size of your paycheck or your lifestyle. Good luck!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

What can you do? Instead of focusing on all the wrong things, that have nothing to do with you - focus on yourself. Take a long hard look in the mirror. Are you who you want to be? If not, why not? You have this one life to give and receive from others. Take a deep breath and ask yourself what you’d like to see for yourself. You can do more than you think.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

What’s in it for you? This is an important question to ask because no one will ask it for you. You must ask yourself if what you’re doing adds any value to your own life. If it doesn’t you may need to stop and reevaluate. This is always difficult. You may upset a bunch of people. But, you must live with yourself and the end result. You can do this. Good luck!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

What do you do well? Everyone has something either big or small that they do very well. But, don’t compare this talent to anyone else. Therein lies defeat. Instead, consider how well you do this thing and how you continually improve. It’s not about doing better than anyone else - it’s about having confidence in your skills as a human being. Gain freedom by trusting yourself.
