Sagittarius Mom Horoscope: October 1 – October 7
Rev your engines, Sag. Go-get-em Mars has made you feel like you’re running on empty since late August, but relief arrives this week as the fiery planet blazes into Sagittarius until November 16, bringing back your trademark energy and ambition. Take advantage of this six-week window and amp up your sitter’s hours to give you the kid-free space you need to develop your initiatives. Don’t be surprised if you’ve got folks beating down your door to partner up. You’re one hot tamale right now, but tame that impulsive reflex of yours and don’t sign on the dotted line. On Thursday, your ruler, expansive Jupiter, moves retrograde (backwards) in your seventh house of partnerships, encouraging you to put on the brakes when doing business. Jupiter remains retrograde till January 30, 2013—if you must commit to a new relationship, only commit to the absolute cream of the crop. Your best bet is to take a look at your current partnerships and invest your time and resources into the ones that can propel your dreams forward. On the romance front, study and travel can spark a love connection or reignite one that’s fading. If the only common ground you’ve shared with your sweetie lately is the children, Jupiter nudges you to take a course, workshop, or even a grown-up vacation together. Single Sag mamas, could also use a vacay from the little ones. Give yourself an early birthday present by revisiting a favorite travel spot, or at least start planning a trip you can take before the end of January. You could meet a local or another traveler, who could prove to make an intriguing romantic prospect to explore. Saturday marks Day One of Saturn’s three-year tour through Scorpio and your mystical twelfth house of release. You’re a hands-on kinda gal, but Saturn in Scorpio wants to teach you the joy of letting go and trusting the universe. Mommyhood requires you to be on top of things 24/7, so it may not be easy to tame your inner control freak. The time is ripe to finally commit to regular yoga or meditation practice. Create the space in your calendar to make it work, and you won’t remember how you ever lived without it.
