Leo Mom Horoscope: October 8 – October 14
You’re no stranger to setting limits with your kids, Leo mama, but this week is about establishing them with yourself. It’s way too easy to shelve “me” time or forego other personal tasks in lieu of tending to your little ones. Last Friday, structured Saturn launched its three-year tour of Scorpio and your fourth house of home and family, prompting the need to set stricter boundaries when it comes to your private time. Devise a schedule so you aren’t left with taking care of everything on your own, especially if you’re not the only grown-up in the house. If you need to book in extra childcare to allow for alone time, invest in yourself, Lion. You might consider doing renovations to your current abode, or even renting a studio space to ensure you have a quiet space to call your own when you need it. If you’re sharing space with other family members or roomies, you might even decide to uproot your crew and move somewhere you can truly call your own. Speaking of having your own space, make sure you set it up stat because this week is prime for nurturing a creative idea. You can’t control when inspiration hits, nor can you control when your babes need changing or when they refuse to take an afternoon nap. Keep a pad and pen handy, or easier still, a handheld recorder to capture those flashes of insight that you can develop when the kids are otherwise occupied. Financially, serious Saturn wants to increase your financial stability, both for you and the future security of your children. Seek out ways to learn about saving and investing. Review options with your current bank, hire a financial advisor, or get inspired by Suze Orman’s book Women and Money. On the love front, whether single or spoken for, this week is about letting it happen, instead of forcing it. Of course, your lifestyle doesn’t lend well to spontaneity, but that’s okay, Leo. When you do connect with your partner or a prospect on date night, allow yourself to be a bit mysterious. By not showing all of your hand at once, you bring an intriguing energy to the mix, which could prompt the other to do the pursuing. Enjoy.
