Scorpio Mom Horoscope: October 1 – October 7
Hey there, Supermom! With taskmaster Saturn moving into Scorpio October 6, your superpowers are about to be put to the test. The ringed planet only visits your sign every 28 years, making its three-year tour significant. Saturn pushes you to be your absolute best, challenging you in a boot camp kind of way. A word of warning, Scorpio mama: you tend to be all-or-nothing so beware falling into the trap of perfectionism. This Saturn cycle isn’t about punishing yourself for not being the Perfect Mom, but rather it’s about facilitating a powerful growth phase. Your world will start to transform and evolve, perhaps through a job change, expanding your family, relocating, or launching a new career path. Establishing boundaries with your precious time and energy is mandatory in avoiding meltdowns. Don’t commit yourself to obligations that leave you stretched way too thin. Between keeping the ship afloat at home and your personal endeavors, you don’t have much free time, Scorpio mama. Avoid burnout and focus your energy on the most important tasks. Remember, Saturn is like your cosmic personal trainer, pushing you to stay on track. Even though you’re usually long on patience, you’ll need to draw on your reserves. Frustration could set in after recognizing that your hard efforts aren’t producing the desired results. All in Saturn’s time, Scorpio. Guard against misdirecting your impatience with the universe onto your kids, and schedule in regular “me time.” And we’re not just talking about a long bubble bath every now and again, although that’s also a good idea. You require several hours or (gasp!) even a few days without your brood. Nurturing time away, perhaps at a yoga camp or a meditation retreat, will do wonders for your energy levels, making mothering enjoyable again.
On the love front, romantic Venus stations itself in your house of group activities, giving those single Scorpio mamas opportunities to connect to folks who share their interests. Don’t hide behind your online dating profile. Get your friends to play matchmaker on the down low and have them inviting eligible prospects to group outings. Already attached? Hit the Refresh button on date night and make it a social affair. Triple or quadruple date with your favorite couple friends, or rally the grown-ups together at your local pub. If you’re a stay-at-home mom, are you thinking of returning to the paid workforce? As go-getter Mars leaves Scorpio and moves into Sagittarius and your money sector until November 16, you’ll feel motivated to get back in the game. Even though your instinct is to channel-surf after the kids go to bed, update your resume, connect with key LinkedIn contacts, peruse job boards. The time will be well worth the effort.
