Capricorn Mom Horoscope: August 13 – August 19
Get ready to roll up your sleeves, Capricorn mama. Sure, you’ve got a sink full of dishes to do, but that’s not the kind of work the cosmos have in store for you. This week, go-get-em Mars aligns with your ruler, disciplined Saturn in your ambitious tenth house, requiring your full focus for one of your top career goals. Before you start scheduling in babysitters for anticipated overtime hours, reevaluate your plan of action. You may be a one-woman powerhouse when you’re wearing your Mommy chapeau, but no one said you need to accomplish this mission sola. In fact, your challenge is to assume the leadership role with gusto: organize, manage, and delegate. If you choose to don your superwoman cape, you’ll only end up frazzled, and even worse, disappointed in the final outcome. Your tenth house also governs the guys in your midst, making them the go-to folks when you need a hand. Are you frustrated with one man in particular who’s been dragging his feet? While your instinct may be to rip a strip off him, opt for a more positive approach. Apply the same logic you try to use with your babes—reinforce the good behavior and ignore the bad. Pump him up by highlighting his strengths. He’ll rise to the occasion, and resume pulling his weight like he used to. Friday’s new moon in your seductive eighth house brings back sexy—and not a moment too soon! If you’re part of a couple, date night is not negotiable. In fact, make up for lost time between the sheets and arrange to have the kids sleep at the sitter’s. If you’re in a common-law situation, don’t be surprised if wedding bells start a’ringin’. Single? Get out and about among potential prospects, and see what your radar picks up. While it may not be love at first sight, this lunar cycle lasts until the corresponding full moon on January 27, giving you six months to nurture those connections worthy of exploring.
