Virgo Mom Horoscope: October 1 – October 7
Launch a love affair with yourself, Virgo. On Wednesday, loveplanet Venus moves into your sign till October 28, shooting self-care to the top of the priority list. Think: long hot bubble baths, just-because mani-pedis, hot stone massages. This isn’t about indulgences; it’s about taking care of Numero Uno. When you top your tank with activities that replenish you, you become that much more equipped to deal with your family’s never-ending list of needs. Remember, it’s your job to take care of the caretaker (yes, we mean you, Virgo!). On Thursday, expansive Jupiter turns retrograde in your ambitious tenth house till January 30, encouraging you to take your time on the professional front. If you’re planning on returning to your place of employ after mat leave, or are aiming to shoot up the corporate ladder, slow and steady wins the race, Virgo. You might have grand plans for advancing your career, but now’s the time to construct a solid foundation you can build on. Reconnect with old colleagues and clients. Strengthen your ties to the higher-ups and power players. Hold off taking big gambles until Jupiter moves forward in February.
On Saturday, energizer Mars stations itself in your domestic fourth house for six weeks, inspiring you to renovate or even relocate. Even if you’re in the market for a move, you should still streamline your current digs to minimize the kid clutter. It’s also a great time to set up a workout station at home, so you can finally establish a fitness regimen without having to drop the kids off at the sitter’s. You usually have an open-door policy for far-away friends and relatives, but be sure to establish boundaries when you roll out the welcome mat, so your kids’ routines aren’t thrown completely off balance. Also on Saturday, structured Saturn moves into Scorpio and your third house of communication and community for the next three years, nudging you to become more involved. Stop standing on the sidelines. Become an integral member of a parents’ group, make a point of getting to know other mums on your block, rally behind a local politician. Pushing yourself to interact more with others can create satisfying new relationships and a safety net of support that is so essential for busy moms like yourself.
