Scorpio Mom Horoscope: September 17 – September 23
Powerhouse Pluto, your ruling planet, rouses from a five-month retrograde this Monday, restoring balance to your day-to-day life. Since April 10, those around you have disappointed you, or even downright confused you with their behavior. Perhaps you’ve been carrying most of the load with the kids while your partner slacks off around the house. Or, so-called “friends” might have showed their true backstabbing colors. Whatever the upset, with Pluto’s forward movement you’ll be able to position yourself on more equal footing with your peeps. Your third house of communication is activated with this shift, making it important that you shoot from the hip. Just like you teach your babes, Scorpio momma, be honest. Ditch the temptation to manipulate others to get your way. Instead, make direct requests. If you don’t get what you want, deal, and move on. Tip: Teach your kids resilience by not complaining. Channel those emotions into a blog, poem, short story, or even the first chapter of a novel. Don’t pooh-pooh the idea of penning a successful book (or any other grand dream of yours) because you’re too busy being a parent. Did you know that JK Rowling was a single, poor mum when she wrote the first in the Harry Potter series? Make the kid-free space you need in order to follow your muse. With Pluto’s direct turn also comes a focus on community. Check out family-friendly local events and activities for you and your crew. Also aim to connect with other parents in your neighborhood. Not only is it handy having support so close by, you could also make a new friend or two. On Wednesday, find your inner Zen master as a Pluto-Uranus square off could trigger an all-out war with a co-worker. Protect your rep, and keep your cool. On Saturday, the sun moves into Libra and your twelfth house of rest and rejuvenation for a month. Sorry to say, Scorpio, but you’ll be feeling sleepier than usual. Listen to your body. Who cares if you need to shell out a few extra bucks to the sitter or ask your sibling or parents to cover childcare for you while you take a much-deserved siesta? You and your kids are worth it.
