Gemini Mom Horoscope: May 14 – May 20
You've had the good fortune of having Venus traveling in your sign for awhile now, Gemini mamas, and like all good things, this, too, must come to an end. On Tuesday of this week, Venus moves into retrograde (backward) motion in your sign, and it's time to clear the slate and start anew, especially when it comes to your romantic life. As we've said before (and we'll say it again!) retrograde phases don't have to be negative!
On the contrary, the next six weeks—until June 27, to be exact—are the perfect time to get back to the basics of what "love" means to you. It's hard for moms to focus on themselves, we get it; but now, it's imperative that you give yourself some much-needed TLC. Take a trip to the salon for some highlights or an extravagant cut or pick up a few items of clothing that make you feel glamorous or (dare we say) sexy! Get out more with your kids: if you've got a little one at home, make the extra effort to slip into something nicer than jeggings and head to a local children's museum, or even a park, for a change in scenery and some of that social interaction you’ve been craving. Or, ask your hubby to watch the kids, drop 'em off at Grandma's, or hire a babysitter, and spend a little time going solo. It's time to rediscover what makes you feel energized and passionate—and to really get clear on the fact that your partner isn't the sole source of these emotions.
Also, now's a great time to say goodbye to negative peeps that bring you down, rather than up. You know the ones, Gemini, so no need to pretend that you don't. If you feel as though certain folks are sucking out your life force, vampire style, the ball's in your court: say thanks, but no thanks, and spend time with the people that love, inspire, and motivate you. As for your romantic relationship, take some time now to perfect your skills at being in a loving, cooperative partnership. Don't be afraid to stop by a bookstore and peruse the self-help aisle for some tips on how to relate to the one you love. Whatever you do, make sure communication is occurring between you and your significant other—talk about what you're feeling or thinking, and don't assume that your hubby can read your mind. You know better than that, Gem!
This Sunday, yet another planetary event occurs in your sign, a solar eclipse. This is an incredibly powerful date for you, Gemini, and you may be presented with some important opportunities for growth and positive change. Thinking about launching a new product or venture, or maybe even starting off on a brand new path? There's no better time than today...but you'll have to act (and think) fast: eclipse opportunities come fast and furiously, and before you know it, they'll have passed you by. Think about where you want to be by the corresponding full moon on November 28: keep your mind focused there, and you can't go wrong, mama Gemini. Take a chance! Lady luck has your back (and so do we).
