Libra Mom Horoscope: June 18 – June 24
Thanks to a new moon in your ninth house of faraway places on Tuesday, you could receive some news from a long-distance relative or friend, or you may have the sudden opportunity to travel. Ready for adventure, Libra moms? This is the second such new moon in Gemini, what's called a "blue moon," and it's a great way for you to check in on how your life has grown or changed since May 20. Did you take some bold steps into the unknown, perhaps exploring an entrepreneurial venture or booking summer travel plans? With this new moon, you could make further efforts in these directions, or may even start down some new paths. Keep your mind open and your eyes peeled—Tuesday would be the perfect day to hang out with a new crew, or maybe even attend that lecture or author talk. Since Saturn entered your sign in October of 2009, you've been on quite the quest, Libra, and your life may look far different than it did two and half years ago. Is it necessary to take some summer classes or enter into a degree program to put a cap on this transformational period? Further education is definitely in the stars, Libra moms, so borrow your daughter's backpack (or dig an old one out of the basement), and get ready to hit the books.
Another major planetary transit this week: the Sun's entrance into Cancer, your tenth house of success and long-term goals, which happens on Wednesday. For the next four weeks, status will loom large, Libra, and you could finally achieve that next rung on the professional ladder or a leadership position for which you've been striving. Because Cancer is the sign of women and all things domestic, be on the lookout for important women to connect with and learn from. Over the next month, spend time with your mom and your grandmother, and make sure your kids have lots of grandma and aunt time as well—honoring your family and your past is important now, especially the women who've done so much to get you to where you are. Think, too, of where you want to be in the next five, ten, and twenty years. Thinking about more kids? Make sure you and your hubby are ready to add another babe to the brood.
The week ends on a rather challenging note, thanks to the square formed by Pluto and Uranus on Sunday of this week. It may be difficult for you to balance the demands of your husband and your kids with your own needs now, Libra mamas, and you may fall into martyr-mommy mode before you know it. While you want to be there for the people you love the most, you also owe it to yourself to fulfill your own needs. You're adept at creating harmony and compromise, so channel that inner diplomat and strive for an equitable balance of give and take. Are you allowing your kids or your partner to rely on you too much? Nip any codependent tendencies in the bud, and help the people you love learn that they're more powerful than they think.
