Virgo Mom Horoscope: May 14 – May 20
You're a goal-oriented lady, there's no denying it...as if you didn't have your children's future all planned out before you even got pregnant! Take a step back this week, Virgo—actually for the next six weeks. Venus, planet of love and harmony, moves into retrograde (backward) motion this Tuesday in your tenth house of ambition and long-term goals, and from now until June 27, we'd recommend keeping your mind firmly focused on the present—and nowhere near the future. Been discussing with your partner the idea of expanding your family, but you’re having trouble getting the answer from him that you want to hear? Or, are you a single mom hoping to be in committed relationship, but your partner can't seem to get off the fence? While it's perfectly legitimate to want answers to your questions, Virgo, you're missing out on valuable aspects of what’s happening right now. Practice being present: hold hands under the dinner table, write your mate a love letter, and treat your sweetie to a few more conversations that don't involve a five or ten-year plan.
You may find yourself rebelling against certain family traditions, or having trouble getting your own family on board with the way things "are supposed to be." Are your kids rebelling against your rules and regulations, Virgo mamas? Though you might be tempted to come down harder than ever on the little hooligans, see what happens if you just take a step back. Maybe what they're rebelling against isn't a specific rule, Virgo, but how you’re relaying it. Food for thought, indeed.
On Sunday, thanks to a solar eclipse in this very same sector of your chart (Gemini, your tenth house), a sudden opportunity to take on a new role at work or a leadership position in a local community organization could arise. Before you lose precious time in deciding whether or not it makes "sense," make a decision! Opportunities presented to us during eclipses come and go very quickly, so you'll have to think—and act—fast. Don't get too caught up in every little step that you'll need to take to make whatever it is happen; either it works or it doesn't, and planning will only delay your choice. Need some advice? Lean on your hubby, a male friend, or a male relative for advice—he might even be your future business partner or number one sidekick!
