Gemini Mom Horoscope: September 10 – September 16
You’re a master at keeping all those balls in the air, Gemini mama, but are you neglecting to deal with a personal issue, possibly with someone in your family? A sun-Mercury mashup in your domestic fourth house urges you to extend an olive branch and open up a dialogue. Even if your kids aren’t within earshot when you’re working through the issues with this person, pretend as if they are and come from a place of compassion and respect. If you need support, an objective third party, like a counselor or spiritual leader, can move the process along. Switch up carpooling duties, run only the most necessary of errands, and stay close to home this week. You’re constantly in motion, and frankly, it’s exhausting you. More down time spent at Chateau Gemini (think: pizza and potluck dinners) can help you catch your breath. The fourth house also rules the women in your world, making them your biggest cheerleaders and back-up reinforcement. Get your sitter over for an extra evening this week, so you can nurture bonds with your BFF or a close female relative without the kids in your hair.
On Saturday, the new moon in Virgo inspires you to set clear boundaries with your immediate and extended brood. If you feel taken advantage of, remember that “no” is a complete sentence. If this theme overflows outside of your family, it’s even more reason to try and balance those scales. You don’t need to overextend yourself and bend over backwards for others to prove you care. With guilt-free limits in place, your time spent together is that much more enjoyable. This new moon marks the beginning of a six-month cycle, activating your nurturing side. Make more quality time in your schedule to spend with your little ones. If you’ve got more than one babe, create special Mommy and Me time with each of your kids. It could turn into lasting memories for both of you. Have the kids been asking, or should we say begging, for a pet? If your resolve is weakening, the weekend’s prime time for picking out a new pup. If you’re worried about the upkeep (and your child’s interest level over the long-term), start small with a turtle or a goldfish. That should be a safe move for even the most commitment-phobe Gems out there.
