Capricorn Mom Horoscope: May 14 – May 20
You could fall into the comparison trap this week, Capricorn mamas, so better watch your step! Loveplanet Venus turns retrograde (backward) on Tuesday, and from now until June 27, this slow down in your sixth house of perfectionism could make that inner critic even louder than she normally is. Yikes! The best way to subvert these feelings, Cappy? Work on keeping your language, your behavior, and your thoughts as positive as possible. Surround yourself with people whose help and support you know you can count on, and most importantly, take them up on their offers to give you a boost. Don't just look in the mirror and think, "How did THAT happen?" but think instead, "What can I do to improve my sense of well-being and happiness?"
Structure your schedule this week—and for the next month and half—so that you have time to exercise, especially as a family. Take a long walk after dinner a few nights a week or start fundraising (and training) for an upcoming charity run. And speaking of charity, participating in community service project in the next six weeks could be a great way to get out of your own head—focusing your attention on the needs of others, rather than your own drawbacks or missteps, will shift your perspective about the world around you. Some Momzilla tendencies could present themselves now, too, so try and catch yourself before you become too critical of your kids or your hubby for not doing things up to the standards that you expect. Let's face it, Capricorn: not even you can live up to your own expectations, so why expect others to do the same? Take lots of deep breathes, hold your tongue before your lose your cool, and strive to be as compassionate as possible.
If you work outside the home, things could be tense with coworkers as well. The best remedy, as always, is communication! Don't let these issues simmer for too long, Capricorn mamas, and remember to lead by example. Be the coworker you want others to be. This is your second family, especially for a sign as work-oriented as yourself, so it's super important that the environment you enter into every day isn't a place of frustration and stress, but somewhere peaceful and productive.
On Sunday, a solar eclipse in this very same sector of your chart provides you with the perfect opportunity to jumpstart your life in a healthy new direction. Did a spot just open up in a local CSA (community supported agriculture)? Fresh, local produce, here you come! Does your neighbor's babysitter need some extra work? Hello, an extra set of hands to help you transition back to work! Act fast, Capricorn: eclipses offer opportunities out the wazoo, but they're often here today, and gone tomorrow.
