Capricorn Mom Horoscope: June 25 – July 1
Step into your power now, Capricorn mamas! Your ruling planet Saturn, the planet known for being super-structured, orderly, and disciplined (sounds like you, doesn't it?), returns to direct (forward) motion today, after about four months of retrograde (backward) slow-down. Since February 7, you may have had to learn on the job, whether that job was professional or personal in nature, slowing down any apparent progress and preventing you from quickly reaching your goals. Frustrating, no doubt, not to mention tiring! Now, however, you'll feel more focused and centered than ever, primed to take on your long-term goals and career ambitions, as well as to boost your family's financial coffers.
If you're in the business world, mamas, work with a career coach or a branding expert to refine your image—and if you're a stay-at-home mom hoping to bring some of your personal goals to fruition, finding a mentor or advisor, or enrolling in a further education program, could be just the ticket to getting to that desired milestone. From now until October 6, keep your nose to the grindstone...and remember that patience is truly a virtue. Saturn is all about slow and steady growth (which you're a master of), so whether you're waiting to hear back from an elite school about your child's admission or gunning for that major promotion at work, do your best to keep a beginner's perspective; in other words, don't get ahead of yourself, Cappy!
Another planetary shift of the week: planet Mercury's move into your eighth house of intimacy, privacy, and shared resources, making this the perfect time (until August 31) to get closer with the ones you love. Plan some intimate date-nights with your sweetie—your neighborhood babysitters will love you, Cappy—and when you make plans to spend time with friends, make sure to choose intimate coffee shops, restaurants, and pubs...places where you can actually hear each other talk! Are there some financial issues that you need to discuss with your partner? Create some time in the next few weeks to talk about your joint financial goals and the goals you have for your kids' future. Make an appointment with a pro if numbers and the stock market aren't your or your hubby's thing.
And finally, on Wednesday, planet Venus returns to direct (forward) motion after six weeks of backward movement in your sixth house of organization and self-care. Did you start some healthy habits when Venus entered this sector of your chart in April, only to get waylaid when this planet of love and beauty turned retrograde in May? Get back on the bandwagon now: make an appointment with your doctor for a general check-up, and recommit to an exercise and diet program. Fill your kitchen with farm-fresh produce from local producers, organize some family athletic outings, and visit a holistic health professional for some natural remedies and maybe even family acupuncture.
