Libra Mom Horoscope: August 20 – August 26
A full night’s sleep may seem like a foreign concept to you, Libra mama, but with the sun sliding into your twelfth house of rejuvenation until September 23, R&R will be a must. Physically, you’ll be craving more down time. Don’t ignore your body’s signals. An out-of-town spa weekend or a few days at a yoga retreat is just what the cosmos ordered. Your babes will survive without you. Leave them in the trusted hands of your partner or a trusted family member, so you can allow yourself to fully unwind. On an emotional level, release resentment; it’s only weighing you down. Just as the saying goes, holding onto anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die. On the home front, launch a decluttering mission. Clean out your closet, pass along your children’s outgrown clothes to your mom friends, and purge your living space of those dust-collecting knick-knacks. If the kids are old enough, turn it into a teaching moment. Encourage them to donate toys they no longer play with to less-fortunate families. Over the next month, your nearest and dearest will have a clearer perspective on your life than you do. Let go of that stubborn streak, Libra, and allow them to guide you down the right path. On Thursday, go-get-em Mars blasts through your second house of money and work until October 6, prompting you to create more efficient ways of earning and managing your moola. If you’ve got several sources of income, brainstorm creative ways to streamline, so you’re not running yourself ragged. If you share finances with your sweetie or a business partner, make sure you’re on the same page when it comes to spending. Some negotiation may be necessary in order to find a solution you’re both happy with. When it comes to your love life, keep it simple. Date night doesn’t need to be an all-out extravaganza. Sure, you want to make the most of your kid-free time, but you can enjoy each other just as much strolling hand-in-hand along the beach or through the park, as you could painting the town red. It’s all in how you look at it.
