Cancer Mom Horoscope: August 20 – August 26
Come on out of your shell, Cancer. On Wednesday, the Virgo sun lights up your gregarious third house, giving you a serious craving for adult interaction. While you adore your kids, they just don’t cut it when it comes to the intellectual and social stimulation you need, especially over the next month. If the majority of your outings center around the little ones, make it a priority to get involved in grown-up activities, be it a book club, DIY class, or creative writing workshop. Platonic partnerships also thrive under this solar cycle. A sibling, peer, neighbor, or cousin could prove to be the perfect person to pair up with for a short-term project. Commuting may also be in the cards over the next month, so make sure you’ve got childcare covered for those days you might get stuck in traffic. If you’ve been considering investing in a new mode of transport (be it four or two wheels), the cosmos give you two thumbs up to take the plunge. Has your love life taken a back seat to cleaning, carpooling, and cooking, Cancer mama? Come Thursday, it’s time to sing a different tune. Your romantic world gets a serious shot in the arm from fiery Mars, which illuminates your passionate fifth house until October 6. Key to making the most of this cycle is taking the bull by the horns. Waiting around for your other half to woo you, or for The One to show up on your doorstep just ain’t gonna make the grade. Slide into the driver’s seat. Single Crabs need to put themselves out there a bit more. Even if Internet dating hasn’t yielded the most promising of prospects, don’t write it off completely. Spruce up your profile, and send out a few winks to folks who show promise. Coupled? If your brood’s demands have caused the flame to fizzle, some one-on-one time and a little creativity can rekindle the fire. Think: lacey lingerie, your LBD, candlelit dining. Drop the kids at the sitter’s overnight, so you and your sweetie can have a sleepover reminiscent of your early days.
