Virgo Mom Horoscope: June 25 – July 1
After four months with Saturn in retrograde (backward) motion in your second house of work and money, mama Virgos, no one's more ready for an economic stimulus than you! Saturn is the planet of structure and discipline, and its return to direct (forward) motion on Monday of this week means increased clarity and focus for your budget, your long-term financial goals, and even some of your daily routines. If you've been thinking about going back to work now that your kids are a bit older, or you've been struggling to make ends meet with your current position's salary, now's the perfect time to hunt for new opportunities, even side gigs or second jobs. Have you and your partner overspent over the past few months, perhaps prioritizing luxury objects when quite ordinary ones would have done just fine? Refine your budget with your partner, and if your kids recently started summer jobs, work with them, too, to create a savings plan for the future. For your kids (or for yourself), check out an online savings account like ING, which offers high interest savings accounts for no fee. There's nothing better than watching your money grow!
Another planetary shift occurring this Monday is communication planet Mercury's entrance into Leo, your twelfth house of healing and completion work, until August 31. No matter how busy your summer schedule gets, make sure there's plenty of time for TLC, mamas. Visit an acupuncturist or energy healer during this time, try a few meditation sessions at your local yoga studio, or lose yourself in your creativity: photography, dance, and music are perfect ways not only to center your emotions, but to deal with some unresolved emotional wounds from the past. Community service work is also a great outlet for you during this time, so why not be a voice for positive change? Speak up for those whose voices aren’t as strong as yours, Virgo, and let your thoughts and opinions be heard.
Finally, planet of love and beauty Venus, which has been retrograde in your tenth house of success and long-terms goals for the past six weeks, turns direct on Wednesday. If your love life felt a little lackluster during this slow-down, it's time to get it back into high gear! Make plans with your sweetie for a lovers' getaway at a posh resort or attend some high-profile events…and let the kids hang with Grandma and Grandpa for a night or two. For all you single Virgo moms, aim high when it comes to romance. Why settle for something less when you know you won't be happy or fulfilled by the quality of a potential partner? Keep those standards high! Someone older and wiser may be just the Prince Charming you were looking for.
