Aquarius Mom Horoscope: May 14 – May 20
Does your personal style truly reflect who you are, Aquarius, and most importantly, who you want to be? Thanks to Venus's move into retrograde (backward) motion through your fifth house of creativity and passion, the next six weeks (until June 27) are all about refining that public image you put out into the world. Scared you'll end up shallow and image-driven by the end of this process? Think again, mamas! This phase is all about digging deep to express on the outside what's truly occurring within—ain't nothing shallow about that! Go through your closest and your accessories and make a pile of the things to sell or give to charity, and maybe even consult with a stylish friend or a professional stylist for tips and advice on what looks best on your body. Just because you're a mom doesn't mean you have to wear "mom" clothes, Aquarius! Update your wardrobe with some bright colors and prints, and maybe even think about making your own clothes: try Wendy Mullin's awesome and simple patterns in Built by Wendy: Dresses.
And speaking of art projects, it's time to dig out those old hobbies! Your child goes to ceramics class, so why shouldn't you? Find some great ways to indulge your artsy self in the next six weeks: try out some new recipes, take a painting class at the local community center or YMCA, and just spend more time PLAYING. No matter how packed your schedule is with work and home responsibilities, Venus retrograde challenges you to let your inner artiste shine.
Your love life will also come under the spotlight during this time, Aquarius mamas. If you're married or in a long-term relationship, don't let petty arguments and drama come between you and your partner for too long; instead, get into communication with your sweetie and take the time and the energy to hash things out. Every relationship goes through these peaks and valleys, and the mark of a good one is both party's willingness to work through them. Make an extra effort now to do so. And if you're single, do some work on your own limiting beliefs around relationships and love—are you still steaming from a past relationship, or not quite ready to consider a new dad for your kids? Work on these issues now, and maybe even take a break from the dating game.
On Sunday, a solar eclipse in this same area of your chart could provide you with the perfect opportunity to move in a bold new direction...even if it seems too wild and crazy to be true! Stay tuned for surprises: a pregnancy is possible, or you may receive your requisite fifteen minutes of fame. You could receive a last minute invitation to a party or tickets a performance at the local community theatre in your city—dress the kids (and you) in their fanciest garb, and head out on the town.
