Gemini Mom Horoscope: October 1 – October 7
Take your time, Gemini. All too often you feel like there are never enough hours in the day to git-er-done, but if you want things done right over the next few months you’ll need to slow it down. Lucky Jupiter stationed itself in your sign on June 11 and opened you up to a world of possibilities. The cosmos put on the brakes this week as the expansive planet turns retrograde (backwards) until January 30, 2013. Instead of diving into yet another commitment, do your homework, and be clear on the pros and cons of getting involved. Your enthusiasm might make you hasty, leading you to take a misstep. Have you been absorbed in Mommyhood and lost touch with a close friend? Whether you’ve just become a new mom, hit the Terrible Twos, or are still trying to get into the back-to-school groove, your schedule will feel more manageable while Jupiter is retrograde, so take the time to reconnect with that long-lost BFF.
On Saturday, driven Mars moves into Sagittarius and activates your seventh house of partnerships. You could end up with a ring on THAT finger before November 16. Warning: Mars could make you impulsive, so make sure you know exactly what you (and your kids) are getting into before you seal the deal. If you have unresolved issues with a partner, the fiery planet’s influence could leave you short on patience. Avoid taking out your frustration on your little ones, and find an outlet for your anger. Do laps at the track, sign up for martial arts classes, or study a passionate type of dance, like salsa or tango. Come Saturday, it’ll be much easier to establish a regular exercise routine as disciplined Saturn leaves your romance zone and moves into your sixth house of healthy habits for a three-year tour. Geminis are multi-tasking experts but you can’t continually burn the candle at both ends. If you continue to push yourself, your health could suffer, which won’t do you or your family much good. Give your body the rest it demands, even if that means increasing your childcare hours. Remember, your body isn’t an enemy that needs conquering. Listen and respect its signals—vitality will follow.
