Cancer Mom Horoscope: September 3 – September 9
We know how fast your day flies by, Cancer mama, but the cosmos want to see you slow it down. You may not be able to shorten your list of to-do’s but you can make time for some grown-up lovin’. Romantic Venus moves into your sultry second house September 6 through October 3, encouraging you to attend to your needs, as well as your babes’. If you’re spoken for, shake up date night and reconnect with a couple’s massage class. It might inspire you to sign up for more. Enjoy the simple pleasures together, like snuggling on the couch, holding hands, and sneaking kisses. You teach your children a lot about love by showing your affection for your mate. Single? Are you attracted to the wild child types? Or commitment phobes? Open your mind to more traditional prospects, even if they look a little boring on the outside. You might be surprised what you find underneath that modest appearance after a few dates. (Sound familiar, Crab?) If you’re having a hard time staying on top of everything on the home front, don’t add more to your plate at work. Simplify and reduce your stress. Share the responsibilities, even if that means you cross the finish line with your colleagues. The important thing is to get the job done, and maintain your sanity in the process. Emotional eating alert: you could reach for the brownies to soothe your nerves, a challenge for many Cancers. Make efforts to be more conscious of how you feel when you’re eating and after you’ve finished. Journal about it. You may numb yourself in the moment, but it won’t eliminate the problem. Anything by Geneen Roth or Susie Orbach can help you learn intuitive eating, so you can deal with the real issues at hand. This Venus cycle stimulates your throat chakra and hands you the mic. Karaoke, anyone? Host a private party at Chateau Cancer with the other moms on the street, and let your inner Celine or Mariah out to play.
