Scorpio Mom Horoscope: October 22 – October 28
It’s all about YOU for a change, Scorpio mama. On Monday, the sun moves into your sign for a month, seriously pumping up your mojo. This week the cosmos give you the chance to hit the Refresh button on your life, allowing you to pursue a new direction, transform an existing situation, and even reinvent yourself from the ground up. Have you abandoned a business idea, a hobby, or your education in lieu of being a mother? Dust off those dreams—having it all is possible. Start off on the right foot: “me” time is mandatory, not something you squeeze in if there’s time left at the end of the day. And you won’t make much progress trying to steal moments in between feedings or naptimes. Bottom line? Extra childcare is a must. Some Scorpio mamas may already have learned this lesson, and are hard at work implementing an Extreme Scorpio Makeover on an area or two in their lives. The need to roll up your sleeves comes courtesy of disciplinarian Saturn, which launched a three-year tour of your sign on October 5. Providentially, the life-giving sun and Saturn are transiting at a close degree to each other this week, infusing you with a healthy balance of optimism and goal-directed action. Don’t shy away from competition, even if you have been at home with your kids for a while and feel a little rusty. If you need to update your skills to be up-to-speed with your peers, get to it. Have you toyed with the idea of being your own boss? (Admit it—the ability to arrange your workday around your babes’ schedule is also a huge selling point.) The time is ripe to venture down this road, but recognize that with Saturn at the helm it’s all about taking toddler-sized steps forward. Take a patience pill, Scorpio, or your sharp tongue could sting the wrong person. On Sunday, loveplanet Venus takes a monthlong tour of Libra and your twelfth house of fantasy, just in time for this weekend’s Halloween celebrations. If you’re coupled, it’s important to dig deeper into dialogue with your partner. Besides date night, arrange mini-dates with each other, even if it’s video chat over lunch. Single Scorpios beware illusions. Tuck away the rose-colored glasses, and take folks at face value, warts and all. There’s no sense projecting your expectations onto someone who simply isn’t the right match for you and your brood.
