Leo Mom Horoscope: September 3 – September 9
Take care of the caretaker, Leo mama. Venus sends its self-love message your way as it moves into your sign from September 6 through October 3. This harmonizing planet only visits your sign once a year, so use this time to restore more balance to your world. You can’t devote yourself to your family 24/7 with no time to refill your tank. Set limits. You hate to disappoint others but if it means a drain on your energy, say no. Or alternatively, negotiate what would work so you both benefit. Between balancing your babes and getting enough sleep, you need to protect what precious time you have for yourself. Speaking of, block off at least a couple of hours week with the sitter so you can escape for a massage, work on a creative project, or meet your BFF for lunch. Looking for love, Lion? If you’ve got a prospect in mind, set up a glam date night. Choose a locale that leaves plenty of opportunity for conversation. Skip the cinema or the dancefloor, and opt for a candlelit table for two. No one currently on your radar? Splurge on a wash-and-style at the salon, slink into your LBD, and you’ll shine at single’s mixer. If you’re already spoken for, have you been feeling neglected? Kids have a way of stealing the spotlight. Make room for one-on-one time with your boo to work through any communication breakdowns. If you can’t find common ground, invest in a few sessions with a couple’s therapist. An objective third party can help you both find perspective. Ensure that date night is set in stone. Try something different together so the focus isn’t always about the kids. Go rock-climbing, take a salsa class, or join an Ultimate Frisbee league. Remember, by nurturing your needs you’re only that much more equipped to be a top mom.
