Madame G guide to the stars Week of AUGUST 12


Put your best foot forward as you take promising steps toward your destiny. The only way forward is through. You can’t change the past, but you can reshape the story in the future. Take the bold step of choosing to live and be consciously aware of where you are right now. Madame G suggests that you don’t go crazy this Full Moon. Take a picture and enjoy!

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You are capable of more than you think. Don’t be afraid of your destiny. You have made all the right and wrong choices up until this point. Take ownership of where you are in the world and more importantly, who you are. This is your fault. You can make the best decisions you can from here on out. Do your best and live your best life.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Free yourself from the tyranny of your own mind. You are capable of more than you’ll ever know. The eighth house rules intense emotions like jealousy and vengeance: Consider yourself on official notice to NOT go there. Take the plunge to be the best version of yourself. Go ahead, try!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Your heart is in the right place. Consider the feelings of those you affect with your words. Learn to empathize with those around you, whether they’re close or not. Whatever your Jupiter-retrograde experience, you should start to feel the pressure lifting and the desire to reconnect rising.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This week is all about streamlining, but without sacrificing aesthetics…or soul! If you’ve tumbled off the wellness wagon since April, don’t beat yourself up, Cancer; GET up! But this Sunday, when the expansive and optimistic planet resumes forward movement, you may instantly feel like you’re back in control.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Keep trying! Every day try to put in just a little more effort. Whether you want to perform on stage (or camera), or get more exposure for your creative work, put the pedal to the metal while the planet of abundance has your back for the coming four months!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You may be about to embark on an epic, possibly scary journey. You will face dragons, hydras, and thieves. You don’t know what could happen. It’s a new voyage.  But, you’ll be so glad you took it. Have faith in yourself. What are you waiting for?

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct.22)

This is a uniquely powerful time to evaluate your messaging and grow your network. Writing and media projects get a powerful push from Jupiter, the planet that rules publishing. If you feel like you could benefit from some coaching, enroll in a public speaking or writing course, or take some workshops on things like social media and digital marketing. Trust the experts, of course; but remember to always consult your own wise intuition.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

More good news for your balance sheet arrives with a bit of fanfare on Sunday, when growth-agent Jupiter wakes from a four-month snooze in Sagittarius and your financial house. Welcome back, moneymaking mojo! Opportunities that stalled out during this annual retrograde, or vanished altogether, return with a sweet vengeance.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This is the time to take responsibility. Don’t blame anyone for your problems. You are the master of your own destiny. You may hate every moment of it. What are your dreams worth? What are you willing to pay? This is about your choices and your life. No one else can tell you how to live.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Starting Sunday, you’ll feel more in control of your life. With expansive Jupiter in your camp, this is the perfect time to start or deepen a meditation practice and work with a therapist, or holistic healer, who can help you bring your body and spirit into better alignment.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Some Water Bearers may seek out new groups and organizations to join, just to be around more people. You could find yourself playing super-connector with some of the folks you meet. Still searching for your true tribe? Be proactive and audition candidates for your dream team.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

With these heavenly bodies making magic in the most industrious zones of your chart, you might feel like the universe poured Miracle-Gro on your career goals. Jupiter rules entrepreneurship and education. Start researching workshops and programs that are fascinating to you personally AND can help advance your professional aspirations.
