Cancer Mom Horoscope: October 22 – October 28
Make your personal pleasure a priority, Cancer mama. You devote most of your energy to ensuring your brood is content, but this week, make it more about you. On Monday, the sun grooves into Scorpio and your celebratory fifth house, prompting you to adhere to the pleasure principle—but there’s a catch. Before you drop the kids off at a relative’s to free you up for a wild night of abandon, know that strict Saturn is also in Scorpio, urging you to exercise moderation. By all means, blow off steam by hitting the town or hosting an adult-only bash at Chez Cancer. A couple of glasses of wine are fine but downing the whole bottle will get you into trouble, not to mention make it that much more difficult to deal with the brood the day after. This sun-Saturn meetup could also put you in the spotlight, potentially via media attention. Get ready for your close-up and donate those Mom jeans once and for all. Take yourself shopping and bring along a fashion-forward friend to help you choose a few funky new pieces to add to your wardrobe. Don’t hide your light under a bushel, or hide behind the scenes. This week is about showcasing your talents and letting others see you in action. As the fifth house also rules romance, your love life gets a major shot in the arm. You can be a tough nut to crack, Crab, but this week’s sun-Saturn merger helps you let down your guard and show your soft side. Single? You’re not going to meet The One at a Mommy and Me play date, so get yourself into circulation at single events or ask your pals to play matchmaker. Push yourself to take a risk. If you’ve got your eye on someone already, don’t waste time waiting for an invitation. Carpe diem! If you’re part of a couple, date night is a must. Sure, scheduling in playtime with your sweetie is not spontaneous, but it ensures you have the one-on-one time you need to keep the fires burning. On Sunday, harmony-lovin’ Venus in Libra lights up your domestic sector for a month. Follow your muse and inject fresh life in your living quarters. If your babes are old enough, have them help you choose new color schemes and accents for their bedrooms. Squabbles with relatives can be easily resolved during this time, so take the high road and initiate a constructive dialogue. Spend more time with the ladies in your world, and mingle with a new group of women. Having other moms in your sphere who you can relate to makes parenthood that much easier to cope with.
