Sagittarius Mom Horoscope: August 20 – August 26
Three, two, one…and you’re on! On Tuesday, the sun storms Virgo and your ambitious tenth house until September 23, shining its solar beams on your professional aspirations. Be prepared to to break out of your Mommy bubble to step into the public eye this week. Expect your unique skills and talents to be sought-after, which will trigger a powerful upswing for your career. A word of warning: You may be used to carrying most of the load on the home front, Sagittarius mama, but trying to handle things solo outside your personal domain just isn’t going to make the grade. The key to being a successful leader is recognizing how to make the most of your time, and that means delegating. Your professional image could use some fine-tuning. If you’ve been a stay-at-home mom for a while, and feel disconnected from the world of fashion, a little coaching in the style department might be well worth the investment. Also be sure to pump up your image in other areas, anything from a brand new shiny website to giving your business cards a facelift. Have you let your brood’s needs take precedence over a personal project? On Thursday, git-er-done Mars moves into Scorpio and your twelfth house of completions until October 6, prompting you to direct your energy into finally finishing it. Between the never-ending list of to-dos at home and the public demands on your time, you’re going to need to carve out a quiet space for yourself. If your energy levels aren’t at their best early in the morning before the gang rouses or late at night after you’ve tucked them in, call in the sitter so you can devote your energy to wrapping up those loose ends. This Mars cycle will make you especially susceptible to guilt-trippers. Don’t get sucked into their manipulative game, Sag. Establish clear-cut boundaries and stick by ‘em. If you tell the in-laws you don’t want any unexpected drop-by visits to see the kids, stand by your guns. They’ll learn soon enough to call ahead to set up a time that works with your already-overflowing schedule. Maintain your sanity with silence. Join a weekly meditation group, or squeeze in a couple of yoga classes to help you stay grounded.
