Pisces Mom Horoscope: October 1 – October 7
Home sweet home or Stress Central? Your co-ruling planet Jupiter turns retrograde in your domestic zone until January 30, 2013, nudging you to rediscover your happy place when it comes your family and personal life. In your desire to satisfy your loved ones, you’ve had your inner people-pleaser working overtime. Are you being too permissive with your kids in the name of keeping the peace? Are you feeling resentful (or exhausted) trying to meet the expectations of your nearest and dearest? Enough is enough, Pisces mama. Step One: establish rock solid boundaries with both your babes and those around you. They won’t like it at first (temper tantrum alert), but stand your ground, Fish. They’ll pick up on the new rules soon enough. Step Two: schedule more “me time.” Sure, you can’t afford to laze around watching The Real Housewives of New York while eating bon-bons, but even fifteen minutes of meditation every day can do you a world of good in boosting your energy levels and calming your frazzled nerves. On Saturday, stern Saturn enters your ninth house of travel, creating the possibility of a big move for you and your brood, possibly beyond national borders. The ninth house also rules publishing so if you’ve got musings on Mommydom you’d like to share with other parents, or a novel brewing, time to put pen to paper. Even better, check out online courses or mentoring sessions to help sharpen your writing skills. Saturn only stops in this part of your chart every 28 years, so make the most of it. On Saturday, go-getter Mars electrifies your tenth house of ambition, giving you a six-week window to boost your professional aspirations. Whether you’re on a hiatus from the paid workforce or you’re already balancing raising a family with a career, you can make great strides in advancing an ambitious dream. Key male colleagues or connections can positively impact your progress toward the finish line, so be sure to reach out. Mars isn’t long on patience, so watch your temper when things aren’t going exactly as planned.
