Scorpio Mom Horoscope: May 14 – May 20
Intimacy is the name of the game now, Scorpio mamas, thanks to Venus's retrograde (backward) motion in your eighth house, which begins on Tuesday of this week and lasts until June 27. For the next six weeks, don't even try to make small talk with your fellows moms at the neighborhood playground, or have the typical "So, what'd you do last weekend?" conversation with your coworkers. You're all about SERIOUS conversations now (and yes, we meant to put it all in caps) and sign-on-the-dotted-line type commitments. Even if it feels like the most natural thing in the world to be talking about your sex life to the woman next to you in the check-out line, chances are, you're freaking her out, Scorpio—not to mention your embarrassed kids standing right beside you! Make sure you have the right outlets for all these pent-up thoughts and emotions begging to be released: a therapist or the pages of your journal might be your best bet, unless you have a dozen close friends willing to bear the weight of all that you have to share.
Beware cattiness on the playground now as well, Scorpio mamas, and even some issues of bullying: and if it's you or your child who are on the offensive end of such behavior, have the strength of character to nip it in the bud and make your apologies.
Because your eighth house also governs your sexuality, this is the perfect week to begin to reclaim whatever sexiness you might have misplaced since the birth of your last child—or since you first became a mom! Spice things up a notch in the bedroom, but not just on a physical level; focus on recreating intimacy with your hubby on an emotional level as well. Get clear about each other's passions and desires, and clear up any of the cobwebs that have built up in the past few weeks, months, or even years. You might also feel the need for a personal reboot now, so make sure you have some personal time this week to reconnect with yourself on a deeper level. In our quests to be supermoms, we sometimes forget our first job: taking care of numero uno.
On Sunday, a solar eclipse in this very same sector of your chart could usher in an exciting financial opportunity for you and your family, perhaps a surprise chunk of change to add to that college fund or a chance to link up with someone on a long-term investment or business idea. Act fast, Scorpio mamas: eclipses are all about flash-in-the-pan moments of possibility, and you'll have to act a bit more impulsively than you might otherwise be comfortable with. The early bird gets the worm!
