Virgo Mom Horoscope: September 10 – September 16
Early this week, it’s your way or the highway, Virgo. With the sun and your ruler mental Mercury meeting up in your sign, you’re crystal clear on the high standards that need to be met to fulfill your vision. If you’ve got a project in the works, the path of least resistance could be one you take alone. Sure, partnering up with another can lighten your load, but only if that person is a true collaborator. You’ve got more than enough on your plate in trying to keep your brood happy than having to add unnecessary stress to your world. The last thing you need is a naysayer throwing obstacles your way and slowing down the process. We know your time is limited, Virgo mama, so instead of stressing yourself out, call up the sitter for some extra hours this week to give you the uninterrupted space to git-er-done. The cosmos also pump up your natural gift of gab. Don’t waste it on lecturing the little ones or offering unsolicited advice to friends or family. Channel your communicative brilliance into advancing your own growth, and launch a Mommy blog, try your hand at short-story writing, or record a podcast or vlog.
Saturday heralds the annual new moon in Virgo, shining the spotlight on your ambitions. Don’t let the day be consumed with doing laundry, helping with homework, and taking the kids to soccer practice. When the babes are otherwise occupied, give yourself an hour to map out your goals for the next six months, and identify the actions necessary to realize them. The time is ripe to invest in advancing your skills, be it with a career coach or going back to school. Beware: this new moon also substantially shortens your fuse, making you prone to blowing your lid when things don’t go as planned. Don’t risk taking out your frustrations on your babes—rechannel that anger into physical activity, like kickboxing, spinning class, or core-strengthening Pilates. Commit to a few classes a week. It’ll keep you grounded and make it that much easier not to sweat the small stuff.
