Leo Mom Horoscope: May 14 – May 20
Tired of the endless buzz about social networking, Leo? Here's the rub: Venus turns retrograde (backward) this week in your eleventh house of group activity and friendship, and from now until June 27, it's YOUR social network that needs the most TLC. Remember, mamas: retrograde phases don't always spell disaster, they just encourage us to go back to the drawing board in a particular area—and because Venus is the planet of love, let's first take a look at your romantic relationship.
Consider this: have you and your hubby been a little too buddy-buddy as of late? While it's great that you're pals, that you love spending time together, and that you efficiently manage the household and the kiddies with ease, having some time to explore your individual interests wouldn't be such a bad idea. Make sure you have a few nights when you leave the kids to your partner, and head out to the meeting of your spiritual center's women's group or to your book club, or even to coffee and desserts with the girls. And let your hubby do the same: no matter how much you love sports, give him the gift of a game-night out with his buddies. Single moms, instead of going on yet another date via an online dating service, why not just get more social? Attend events at your kids' schools, the neighborhood community center, or a local charity. Indeed, the person picking up trash next you at the park cleanup day might be a hot romantic prospect, or maybe an amazing friend.
One caution for the week: be wary of negative peer pressure, and not just where you might expect it (in a child's classroom, perhaps, or at their extracurricular activities). Consider your own life, too. Are there people you consider friends who push you to act in a way that's not true to your personality or ideals, Leo? Nix these relationships from your roster, and find new, more positive peeps to spend your time with. You're too good a catch to be swimming with the bottom-feeders.
On Sunday, a Gemini solar eclipse (more action for your eleventh house, Leo!), could introduce a healthier crew of folks into your life—in other words, just what the doctor ordered. If you've been on the hunt for a perfect organization or group to become more involved with, this is the perfect opportunity to join up and start making a difference. Involved in a web venture, or looking for the perfect day to launch the Great American Mommy Blog? Kick these projects off today! Just make sure you act fast: while opportunities abound during a solar eclipse, time is of the essence. Vacillation is your worst enemy: channel the decision-making of a two-year-old and just grab what you want! You'll have a team of supporters cheering you along every step of the way (especially two twin astrologists!).
