Aries Mom Horoscope: May 28 – June 3
Put down that planner, Aries moms, and turn off those reminder emails! Memorial Day is this Monday, and the Virgo moon is opposed Neptune, making this the perfect day for chilling out, enjoying the fam, and maybe even getting more connected with your artistic side. Bring out those watercolors from underneath the bed and go paint on the beach, why don't you? Hopefully, moms who work outside the home have the day off from work—and if you're a stay-at-home mom, give yourself the day, or some key hours, of personal time. Ask your partner or a trusted friend or relative to fill in for mommy-duty while you get some precious alone time, and pare down your kids’ activities (and yours) so that the day’s schedule is anything but hectic. Pack a picnic and head to a nearby park for games, sunning, and some time to reconnect as a family. Once Tuesday arrives, you'll be back in business—but until then, enjoy this cosmic gift from the universe!
As for the rest of the week, the Sun, Mercury, and Venus in retrograde are all transiting through Gemini, your third house of work and money, setting the scene for important connections with the people in your midst. Get out in your community now, Aries moms, whether it's via volunteer weeding, sowing, and pruning at your local community garden, going to story-time with the little ones at the local library, or joining that book club that your neighbors have been begging you to become a part of.
Venus in retrograde (backward) motion in this part of your chart encourages you to mend the fences with anyone close to you—a friend, coworker, or a close relative—and get your relationship back on track. Why let this conflict loom larger on your life than it should, Aries? Chances are, your connection with this person is still based on lots of love and affection–and being unwilling to release your grudge is just plain stubbornness and self-righteousness on your part. In other words, your behavior is definitely not indicative of your best self. Extend the olive branch and eradicate the shadows from this important bond.
Another focus of the week: stimulating your inner intellectual! Hit the bookstore for a couple of new titles (you know you want to read Fifty Shades of Grey, mamas, don't deny it!), and download some new audiobooks to your smartphone or mp3 player. You might find yourself out and about more than usual now, so having the ability to learn while ferrying around the kids will make all that gas-guzzling much less onerous.
