Aries Mom Horoscope: August 20 – August 26
Having trouble keeping up with the kids, Aries mama? On Wednesday, the sun moves into Virgo and your sixth house of health, giving you the mojo to get your self-care routines on the right track. Running after the little ones is no easy feat. Make it easier on yourself by not fueling your tank with sugary snacks and double-shot lattes, so you’re not running on empty. Stock your shelves with dried fruits and nuts, and fill your fridge with dark green veggies and fresh seasonal fruits. Once you get past the initial detox phase, you’ll not only boost your energy levels, but you’ll also set a good example for your brood. (Tip: don’t deny yourself outright of your favorite indulgences—aim for balance.) If your fitness routine consists of dragging yourself out of bed for middle-of-the-night feedings or carpooling the gang to and fro’, carve out time for some rejuvenating exercise. The trick is to schedule it in, just as you do with your babes’ routines. Activities that strengthen your core are especially grounding. Sign up for a month’s worth of Pilates or yoga classes a couple of times a week, and arrange childcare, so you have no excuses. Remember, Ram, it only takes 21 days to establish a new habit. Come Thursday, your ruling planet Mars transits into your seductive eighth house until October 6, jumpstarting your sex drive. Rekindle your connection, and set date night in stone. Single mommas need to get back into the game, be it via online dating or getting your BFFs to set you up with friends-of-friends. On the financial front, this Mars cycle encourages you to think creatively. Anything from starting up a home-based side business to making smart investments could mean much more moola in your pocket. A word of warning, though: your competitive nature shines during this transit, but keep your eyes wide open. Shady characters could be lurking. Don’t get lured in by any snake-oil sellers. Any dubious dealings during this time are bound to come back to bite you.
