Aquarius Mom Horoscope: August 6 – August 12
Sleep deprivation, begone! Getting eight hours of shuteye a night will keep you sane, Aquarius mom, so stop cutting corners! On Tuesday, loveplanet Venus lights up your sixth house of self-care, urging you to treat your body with more kindness; that brings us back to the importance of giving your body the time it needs to repair and rejuvenate itself each evening. Yes, we know how frustrating it is to get through your day exhausted, yet feeling like you accomplished next to nothing. If you feel like there aren’t enough hours in the day, it’s a clear-cut sign that you need to ask for help. Let go of the notion that you need to do it all. You don’t. In fact, this Venusian cycle makes the women in your world indispensible over the next four weeks. Do everyone a favor, and state your needs outright. Dropping clues is not an effective strategy. When it comes to your love life, it seems less than romantic to have to prearrange date nights, but it’s a surefire way to ensure you get the non-kid bonding time you both need. (Of course, feel free to put your feelers out for trusted sitters in your ‘hood who’d be willing to watch the little ones on a dime, so you and your boo can follow any impulsive urges that strike.) Single? Spark up a conversation with that cutie after yoga class, or smile at that hunky fellow runner. You could also connect with eligible prospects via volunteer work, perhaps for a charity or even with your kids’ nursery or grade school. Who knows, Aquarius, another single parent could catch your eye. Your love life gets a double boost as messenger Mercury turns direct after a three-week retrograde. If you’ve been locking horns with your honey, you’ll be able to express yourself more clearly and less confrontationally. By the weekend, compromise will be worlds easier to negotiate. An old flame could have resurfaced during this retrograde. You’ll also know by the end of the week if the relationship is worth a second shot, or best to close the chapter. Chances are, it’s the latter.
