Scorpio Mom Horoscope: June 4 – June 10
Have you been making extra efforts around your budget for the past six months, Scorpio? This Monday's lunar eclipse in your second house of money and daily routines might give you just the reward you were looking for—some extra cash! Make sure your hard work doesn't go unnoticed by those in your midst, especially since you may have been so focused on planning your work and working your plan that you didn't have time to tell everyone what you were up to. Accept your acclaim with grace, Scorpio mamas!
If you currently work outside the home, Monday's eclipse could put you in line for a promotion or maybe even a corner office. A surprise raise isn't out of the question, or if you're a stay-at-home mom, you may have the chance to earn some extra dough just by monetizing your blog or selling your wares on Etsy. While opportunities offered during an eclipse often occur fast and furiously, requiring speedy decision-making, make sure you don't make TOO rash a move, mama. No matter how much you wish you didn't have to work those midnight shifts or how ready you are to put in your notice, your family may not be able to spare your income—we suggest sitting pretty until the fall (October 6, to be exact), when Saturn enters your sign. Once that planetary event occurs, your world will feel stable enough to change things up once and for all.
Another transit happening on Monday is Neptune's turn into retrograde (backward) motion in your fifth house of creativity and passion. For the next five months, resist the urge to step into the spotlight (or put your children there, too), and instead, bring your attention inwards, Scorpio. What hobbies or interests have you been neglecting, and are there some new outlets you can explore to inspire your inner muse? Neptune brings an illusory quality to your romantic relationship, too, and when this planet is in retrograde, it challenges you to sharply delineate between what's real and what's all in your head. Talk openly with your hubby, and don't be afraid to clear up anything you're confused or unsure about. Chances are, your relationship will be the stronger for it.
And finally, communicator Mercury moves into your ninth house of travel, exploration, and study on Friday, and for the next three weeks, you'll feel more adventurous than ever. Research possible summer vacations for the family (perhaps even somewhere abroad!), surround yourself with a multicultural crew, and spend time with the kids at the public library, your favorite bookstores, and your favorite international restaurants around town. Do you have relatives who live too faraway to visit? Set up a Skype session so that your kids can talk with their awesome aunt in Mexico or their uncle in Japan. Your lesson for this week: the world is smaller than you think.
