Aries Mom Horoscope: May 21 – May 27
You've worked hard on your own for the past month, Aries mamas, but now it's time to rely on the power of team to get the job done. It really does take a village now, as the Sun's movement into Gemini, your third house of community, will remind you. As an independent spirit, it's often hard for you to believe that other people could possibly fulfill your expectations—but what mom doesn't need a helping hand every now and then? Whether it's at the workplace or in your home, ask for (and receive graciously!) the support of the people in your midst. Though your hubby or your coworkers might have a different method than you, it's time for you to realize that there's more than one way to skin a fish.
Get involved more in your neighborhood now, too: are there social groups dedicated to moms in your 'hood? Find them and then join them, Aries—as much as you think you don't need the support, you really, really do. Seriously. Find ways to get out and about with your family, too. Community gardens, county fairs, events at your public libraries and museums: all are great ways to connect with the people who live, work, and play near where you and your family do...and who knows what future collaborators or partners might exist among them? Get out on your own as well, perhaps via a book club or the aforementioned women's group in your neighborhood. We get that your schedule's packed, Aries, but it's super important for you to have an intellectual outlet outside of multiplication flashcards and state capitols. Pick up a couple of the latest bestsellers (we'll be the hundredth person you know to recommend Bringing up Bebe by Pamela Druckerman) and get your reading on, stat.
As for your romantic life, Aries, focus this week on the friendship between you and your significant other, not necessarily the romance. Hit up a lecture or an author event for this week's date, or maybe even your child's band concert at school. Hey, these dates "count" as much as that expensive dinner at the pricey French restaurant in town, and they'll remind you of the things that connect you and your sweetie besides a mortgage and your children's DNA. Been waiting to pick up that new smartphone or start that online seminar? This is the month to do both: you have the planet's permission to go tech-crazy, Aries mamas.
