Madame G guide to the stars Week of March 9


Prepare for war, figuratively. The First Quarter Moon emerges again on March 3 and tensions rise. It’s always better to prepare than to expect a peaceful surrender. The Sun is in Pisces and this may mean peace is near. But, some causes are worth fighting for. Madame G suggests you learn the difference between wasted time and a meaningful existence. Seek and ye shall find!

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You’re looking for something. Have you found it? Maybe you never will. But, the key is in looking deep and digging deeper. Don’t waste time on frivolity. You may experience a temporary happiness in fleeting pleasures (i.e. sex, drugs, or alcohol). Such moments, will never lead to permanent bliss. In order to get there, you must let go of all expectations. Live a little.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

What are you waiting for? The going doesn’t get easier. You’ll never find the perfect moment, partner, or life experience. You have enough in you to get where you want to be. If you haven’t heard lately - you’re enough. This must be a hard truth in yourself. There is no other way to live. You will always be enough. Stop seeking outside. Look within and there you’ll find peace.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

The heart is a funny organ. It speaks of joy and sorrow. But, the truth is that the heart knows. Your head will mess up the equation. You’ll find justification for misdeeds in yourself and others. Never look outside for the answer, for it is within you. Your heart knows this. Your heart has already decided. The rest of your mind, body, and soul must catch up. Make it so.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Times are changing. You can’t change this. You head from one moment to the next and expect the sun to rise and it does. So, you assume nothing else changes. Mortals must accept that all things change over time. Your friends will age and loved ones die. It’s easier to blame than move on. But, in the end you must decide what to do, for it’s your life, to do as you will. What’s next?       

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

What lies at the center of hope? You may think it lies at the heart of promise - the promise for a better and brighter future. You may even believe that it signifies change. Hope is all of these things and more. Yet, hope is merely a belief, or faith, that what was true today can be better tomorrow. Share this faith with the world. Don’t hide among the dirt and brush. Share the light.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Your light shines brighter than the rest. But, that doesn’t mean you’re above wearing out. Even you may experience the rush of disappointment or sadness. This is to be expected. In those moments, you must put your head down and breathe. Take a moment and then put your arms in a fighting stance and run. You are capable of taking down all in your path. It’s just an obstacle.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct.22)

You may have faith in little, but you should have faith in yourself. There is little that you couldn’t accomplish. It’s up to you to take on the world, even if it is one silly little challenge at a time. You’re more than capable. If the Oscar producers can spend millions and still make mistakes - it’s not the end of the world if you do. Better to live and try than do nothing.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

How do you kill a tiger? Well, you might try to make them swim like a fish. Actually, tigers are excellent swimmers and will scare you (should you be unfortunate enough to run across one). Perhaps you know people who try to judge tigers on their ability to forage for fruit. Whatever the case, you won’t thrive under those conditions. But, you can become stronger. Take them on!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Life is full of doubts and triumphs. You may have made poor choices along the way. Some of those choices may have turned out to be good or blessings in disguise. Only you can define what is good or bad. Only you know if these are good days or bad. But, you do have the power to change your path. Don’t be afraid. This is a wonderful time to live and thrive. Take it on now!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Watch a good movie and sing your heart out. You already know the lyrics to Frozen, The Little Mermaid, and The Lion King. This is a good time to catch up with friends and go back to a creative project and finish it. Take precautions. Back up your files.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

What’s in your heart? You may think life is passing you by, but what better time to take on the world than now? Now is the perfect time to live the life you’ve always wanted and to be who you’ve always imagined. It’s in your best interest. There will never be a time like now. There will never be a greater time for living your life. The clock is ticking and all is finite. Act now.  

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

So, your heart is a little bruised. What did you expect? You can’t get through life unscathed. In fact, no one gets out alive. The question is what’s worth risking and what isn’t. You can’t pray that the heavy winds of time will never touch you. They will. What type of life would shelter you from all harm? That’s reckless and boring. You don’t need to be one or the other. Live!
