Sagittarius Mom Horoscope: May 14 – May 20
Should you stay or should you go, Sagittarius mamas? In every relationship, especially one in which there's so much at stake (in other words: kids), there's always going to be ups and downs; it's how we deal with these trials and travails that tests the quality and the longevity of our bonds with other people. And with loveplanet Venus moving into retrograde (backward) motion beginning on Tuesday of this week, transiting through your seventh house of committed relationships, you could be feeling some major stress...not to mention doubts out the wazoo. Check yourself before you do anything too impulsive now, Sag, even if it seems like the best idea at the time: retrograde phases encourage us to work through whatever issues we've been so happily sweeping under the rug, not to run away from our problems—and for the next six weeks, we advise you to do just that. Communicate honestly and openly about what you need and desire from your hubby, and if the help of a neutral third-party is necessary to do this, don't hesitate to book a session with a couple’s counselor or a family therapist.
When's the last time you took a vacation with just the two of you, or actually had a conversation about something other than money, your children, or your home? While you might be months, if not years, out of practice in this type of communication, Venus pushes you to say, "Hey, wait a minute...this isn't why we fell in love...THIS is." Romance aside, other significant relationships in your life might also need some TLC, Sag. Have you lost a little of that lovin' feeling with your business partner, or do you feel some distance with your children? Maybe it's time for a company retreat or a business workshop, or a special mom/child field trip or dinner date. Get back to the core of your relationships now, and relight that spark (or give it a little more kindling), so that your bond continues to deepen and evolve.
This week (and for the next six weeks) you are who your friends are—make sure what these relationships look like is a true reflection of your most authentic self. Looking for some new members of Team Sagittarius? Thanks to Sunday's solar eclipse in this very same sector of your chart, there's a strong probability that opportunities for new partnerships could present themselves, or you may reach a new level of commitment in a partnership you're currently in. Single moms looking for love: that perfect Papa Bear could be one introduction away, so if you feel even a hint of electricity, make sure he doesn't leave without your contact info. No one loves taking a chance more than you, Sag, and thanks to this eclipse, you'll be in change-making paradise!
