Aquarius Mom Horoscope: October 1 – October 7
The cosmos want to see you make room for your career, Aquarius momma. Structured Saturn stations itself in your ambitious tenth house for the next three years, getting you excited about investing in your professional life again. If you’ve been home with your brood on an extended mat leave, you’re obviously going to need extra hands to help, especially during the transition phase. If you’re already balancing Mommydom with your career and want to climb the ladder a rung or two, don’t expect immediate results. Saturn demands hard work and only doles out accolades after substantial effort and patience. The initial phase of this three-year cycle is best spent adding to your credentials and building your skillset. If you’re already in the midst of bettering yourself professionally, you could be rewarded with a leadership opportunity. You’re quite comfortable being the boss on the home front, but outside of your Mommy bubble, you’re most comfortable being a team player. Saturn challenges you to grow, so if the higher-ups believe that you belong alongside the VIPs, put your best foot forward. If you’re toying with making a radical change in your vocation, visit a career counselor and investigate volunteer opportunities that would allow you to get your feet wet. (Double-check with your sitter to ensure you can make the commitment.)
Also this week, energizer Mars moves into your group activity sector for a six-week stint, inspiring you to become more involved in your community, especially if it’s about improving the well-being of the collective. Volunteer at your local soup kitchen, join a neighborhood watch group, or organize a recycling program for your block. If your kids are old enough, bring them along, and your altruism can also double as a teaching moment. On Thursday, expansive Jupiter turns retrograde in your romance sector until the end of January, prodding you to take love one baby step at a time. Single mamas need to take care they don’t scare away potential prospects by trying to push the relationship along faster than it’s ready for. Let it evolve in their own sweet time. Coupled Caps, need to get back to basics. When was the last time the two of you had a laid back conversation that had no reference to the kids? Create more one-on-one time to chat and reconnect as a couple—not just as parents.
