Cancer Mom Horoscope: August 13 – August 19
Is your haven feeling more like a carnival out of control? This week’s Mars-Saturn meetup in your domestic zone demands that you create a refuge for yourself, especially away from the kid-induced chaos. Declare the den or spare bedroom, yours and yours alone. Summon your inner Design Star, and convert the space into a luxe yet practical sanctuary that can also double as a home office. Think prints by your favorite artists, scented candles, a roll-top antique desk. Your job (outside the home) could go through changes that ultimately allow you more freedom and flexibility. Get the ball rolling on home renovations that will ultimately make your life more streamlined. High drama alert! Your plans this week could be at odds with those of your relatives. Each party will insist on being in the right. Don’t fall down that rabbit hole. Shelve the issue till next week when finding middle ground won’t require Herculean efforts. Take care to keep your boundaries firmly in place, Cancer mama. You’re a natural nurturer, and everyone knows it, especially your family. Beware a relative’s cry for help. There’s a clear distinction between being a source of support, and having all the answers. It’s not your problem to solve. Offer your ear, and an optimistic attitude. Anything more and she’ll drain you dry. Looking for a new job, or perhaps wanting to reintegrate with the work world after a period of staying home with the kids? Friday’s new moon illuminates your income sector, bringing new opportunities your way. If you’ve been out of the workforce for a while, investigate additional training or education to give you that competitive edge. Don’t neglect to research online programs—it might be the ideal option to work around carpooling the crew, soccer practice, and after-school activities.
