Madame G. Guide to the stars WEEK OF Feb. 19 - Feb. 25


Madame G was asked, when does a teenage daughter stops being terrible? The answer: when she’s cool enough for Disney. Today the Sun shines in Pisces. The sign of the fish goes with the flow, shows compassion, and works on the inner self. Take notice and head over to the Happiest Place on Earth even, if it’s only in your dreams.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

It’s nearly impossible for Aries to go with the flow. Normally this is a good thing. You’re innovative and motivated. You get stuff done. But, your forceful nature works against you when life requires patience. And it often does. Take a tip from the Ancient Romans, never stand when you can sit, or sit when you can lie down. In this way, you’ll find you’re always rested when it’s time for war or nap time with a toddler.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You’re a loyal friend and a despondent enemy. Though you understand hard work and will kill yourself with drudgery — you’re terribly lazy. This doesn’t prevent you from caring for your family. However, mental laziness is unacceptable. Turn off the television and pull out a book. Your kids will thank you and it’s something you can do for yourself.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This is the beginning of a fantastic workweek for you. Your sign is full of spirit and it will appreciate the intuitive nature of the Pisces Sun. Keep yourself honest and learn a new skill. It’s probably a great time to begin learning a second language or tapping into the creative arts. You might try submitting a few stories to competitions. You’ll be glad you did.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

As a fellow water sign you’ll appreciate this month’s calming influence. This is a very good month for mending fences with friends. It’s in your best interest to reclaim those that have strayed from your house. You’re prone to pushing loved ones away when you need space — they’ll understand. But, you MUST first reach out or you’ll wind up alone.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Don’t despair! You may have let someone down, but you didn’t know it at the time. It wasn’t intentional. It’s time to take action and make the correction. A few extra dollars aren’t worth losing your good reputation. It’s best to fess up as soon as you notice the problem and take responsibility. The most you can do is apologize and allow them to do the rest. It’s only fair.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Leo Tolstoy famously said: “All happy families are alike; each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.” Madame G says that all families are complicated even the ones we create. Family bonds are important and we often don’t know what we have until it’s gone. Forgiveness is cheaper than therapy and it’s what they suggest anyway. Try it.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct.22)

Your spirits are soaring and it feels as if you could fly. If others insist on bringing the mood down enjoy it for yourself. Watch a good movie and sing your heart out. You already know the lyrics to Frozen, the Little Mermaid, and The Lion King. Go ahead, turn the kids portion of Netflix on and have a blast.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Keep your end goal in mind otherwise you’ll flounder. If the petty inconveniences are getting you down look forward and don’t get caught up in drama. Someone is either part of your end game or they’re unimportant. The force of your will pushes you and other projects forward. so don’t fight yourself … and relax. Put your energy where it belongs.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Happiness is equal portions of luck/chance and choice. You may not like your circumstances and some things are unavoidable or tragic. How you respond to these moments and tragedies is very important. You can either make a choice to be unhappy and live your life that way or you can choose to be happy. This will require action on your part. Good luck!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You enjoy simple pleasure and gain a great deal from studying your fellow human beings and animals. You also enjoy caring for others in your own way. However, this comes with a price. You must learn to care for yourself and it requires more than just spending money on pedicures. Enrich your mind and soul by reading a good book, listening to music, and meditating. Live well!

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Madame G suggests planning for your next great adventure. Spring is just around the corner and summer will be here along with the prospect for vacations. Sign up for an unusual outing that involves working out and playing. Try a Jiu-Jitsu class in Costa Rica with your spouse or backpack through Romani. Either way you’ll have lots of stories.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

This is your month. You should use it to your advantage because there isn’t always an opportunity for peaceful reflection. As a sensitive spirit you feel the pain of others often in a literal sense. Take care of your spiritual needs and work on any underlying emotional hang-ups. You can’t help others, if you’ve never helped yourself.
