Libra Mom Horoscope: October 22 – October 28
You knew having kids was going to put a strain on your bank account, but perhaps you underestimated just how much. The life-giving sun and taskmaster Saturn meet up in your second house of work and money this week, urging you to buckle down work-wise and get your finances in order. Even if you’re at home with the brood, you can still lay out a long-term action plan for your reintegration into the labor force. Use this surge of energy to circulate your resume, connect with a mover and shaker, or pin down a job lead. Even though your babes demand the majority of your time, don’t try to do too much when you do have a free moment. Saturn’s pace is slow and steady. Huge leaps of faith, like walking out on your current employ without securing another, will only get you into hot water. Push forward but pace yourself. Your patience will be rewarded in good time. The trick is to learn how to make the most of your reward when it comes your way. You are a lover of all things luxe, Libra, and you especially enjoy splurging on your kids. If your savings are scarce or you’re struggling with debt, set aside time to do a budget overhaul. If the task is too daunting, call on the expertise of a financial planner. Being out in Mother Nature will do wonders for your mental health, so rally together a few mom friends and their kids and spend an afternoon apple picking. On Sunday, your ruling planet, romantic Venus moves into Libra for the next month, pumping up your charisma. Single? Your charm will prove irresistible, giving you a wide range of prospects. Enjoy the attention but be picky. Reserve date night for a truly worthy choice, even that means you have to do the asking. Coupled? Speak up if your sweetie isn’t following through on promises. Don’t swallow your needs to keep the peace. Being assertive doesn’t equate with being aggressive. Besides, when you respect yourself by honoring your needs, your loved ones will as well.
