Aquarius Mom Horoscope: September 17 – September 23
Bid adieu to acting out of guilt or obligation, Aquarius. You hold high enough expectations of yourself as a mother that you don’t need additional pressure from manipulative people trying to bully you into tasks that you don’t want or have time for. On Monday, transformational Pluto powers forward in your twelfth house of endings after a five-month retrograde, making it easier to set clear boundaries. Remember that “No” can be a complete sentence if you want it to be, even when you’re speaking to grown-ups. Just as you encourage independence in your babes, be it with choosing their own outfit in the morning or teaching them how to answer and use the phone, you’ll be called to do so with folks who rely too heavily on you. Your challenge is to empower them without leaving them high and dry. You can start by weaning them off your support. Should you be dependent on someone in your world, this Wednesday’s Pluto-Uranus square off could bring that imbalance to a screeching halt. You might feel like the rug’s been pulled out from underneath you, but hold that sharp tongue of yours. Reach out to a trusted confidante for perspective and support in liberating yourself from this controlling dynamic. On Saturday, the urge to explore beyond your own background could strike as the sun grooves into Libra and your international ninth house. Take advantage of the off-season rates and treat your brood to an autumn getaway before October 23, perhaps at a locale that requires everyone in your fam to get hooked up with passports. If you’ve been pondering going back to school or trying your hand at an entrepreneurial venture, your get a cosmic green light to go for it. Just be smart about it and arrange for plenty of extra childcare support until you find your rhythm with your new schedge.
