Sagittarius Mom Horoscope: October 29 – November 4
Have you been hating on your post-pregnancy bod, Sagittarius mama? Monday’s full moon shines its healing beams on your sixth house of self-care, urging you to be gentle with yourself. Stop focusing on the scale or those skinny jeans from decades past. Instead, turn your attention to feeling strong and healthy and at ease in your own skin. If you haven’t established an exercise routine yet, the key is having fun while trying to stay or get in shape. Sign up for a spirit-lifting swing, hiphop, or salsa class, and firm up childcare during those timeslots so you won’t have any excuses. When it comes to nutrition, release yourself from the chains of dieting, and tune into your body’s needs. It’s only when you deprive yourself of certain foods that you set yourself up to overeat. Recommended reading: “Women, Food, and God” by Geneen Roth. Be proactive and guard against viruses (and overall grumpiness) by getting adequate sleep. If middle-of-the-night feedings or monsters under the bed are disturbing your REM cycle, have your support circle cover for you, so you can recharge with a catnap. As the sixth house also governs your daily work, you could make professional advances this week. If you’re unhappy with your current gig or dread going back to work after mat leave, create a new direction for yourself. If you’re miserable at work and your unhappiness isn’t enough to motivate you to move on, do it for your family, Sag. As much as you don’t want it to, your dissatisfaction outside the home will inevitably affect your home life. You and your loved ones deserve better. Communicator Mercury moves into Sagittarius until November 14, blessing you with the gift of gab. Stop shouldering all the responsibility with the little ones and ask for help—there’s no sense in burning yourself out, especially when you’ve got folks willing to lend a hand. Step outside your Mommy bubble this week to get others to focus on you. Share your talents and spread your gospel, Sadge; people are interested in what you’ve got to offer. (Tip: don’t put it off till next week when Mercury turns retrograde and muddles messages at every turn.) Plan a grown-up Halloween night out after the babes are tuckered out from Trick-or-Treating. Costume up with your sweetie or head out to a party with one of your BFFs—being draped in disguise sets the stage for a love connection.
