Capricorn Mom Horoscope: June 18 – June 24
It's time for a system update, Capricorn mamas! There's another new moon in Gemini this week—Tuesday, to be exact—and it's the second such new moon in this sector of your chart, a so-called "blue moon." Because the sixth house rules self-care organization, and fitness, this is your second chance to get the ball rolling on some healthy new habits: making time in your schedule for weekly work-outs, perhaps, booking regular doctors appointments, and switching out some of those processed foods in your pantry for whole-grain, fresh staples. How are your stress levels? As a Capricorn, you tend to struggle for impossibly high standards...and as a result, you often play into some majorly perfectionist tendencies. Let go of being the best mom/wife/employee/neighbor, or whatever racket you're running these days, and find ways to ease up on yourself, your family, your colleagues, and your friends. Did an opportunity emerge to get back in the workplace last month or to take on some new responsibilities? This week, it's time to make your move in this new direction—you've had a month to mull it over, rearrange your schedule, and put the finishing touches on any existing projects or tasks, and now it's time to step forward into your future.
On Wednesday, the Sun enters Cancer and your seventh house of committed relationships for the next four weeks, setting the stage for the most relationship-focused month of the year. A friendship could move into BFF status, or if you're a single mom, someone you're currently casually dating may show signs of increased commitment. Married Cap mamas, get more quality time with your hubby, and focus on your marriage—not the kids! Your kids deserve some QT with mama as well: if they're not already ensconced in a full schedule of summer activities, schedule some mommy-and-me days. Trips to the spa with your daughter, field trips to the museum and the symphony, and trips to town for ice cream sundaes are all great ideas.
The week ends on a challenging note, thanks to the tense square formed by Pluto, currently visiting your sign, and Uranus, currently visiting Aries. Have you been focusing so much energy on your family that you've lost your sense of your own identity? Yikes and a half, Cappy! Find more time in your daily routine for your hobbies, your passions, and your personal goals. Create more distinction between home and work now, and maybe even invest in a second home or country retreat, if your finances can handle the additional financial burden Before you step out on too major of a limb, remember that this is the first of seven such squares occurring between now and March of 2015—you have plenty of time to figure this out, Capricorn, so do your best to keep calm and carry on.
