Aquarius Mom Horoscope: April 2 – April 8
Never been one of those moms who goes crazy over D-I-Y projects? Well, with lovely Venus moving into your fifth house of passion and creativity on Tuesday, you’ll be leading the charge on all things creative and artistic. Not only is this an extra-long visitation from Venus (four months instead of its usual four to six weeks), but having Venus in this area of your chart is like adding sugar to a glazed doughnut; in other words, you’ll be bubbling forth with great ideas, and you’ll have more than enough energy and motivation to put them into practice. Think big now when it comes to birthday parties, crafting projects, and even your personal style, Aquarius. Nix the stretch pants and the t-shirts for some cute sundresses or bright prints, and maybe even think about getting a hip new haircut that doesn’t make you feel so much like…okay, we’ll say it…your mom.
If you still have little ones, there’s nothing you’ll like more in the next few months than some dedicated playtime. Why not make a few deposits in the karma bank by offering to host some play-dates or carting your kids and their friends on impromptu field trips? Just a quick heads up, Aquarius: if you and your hubby are thinking of adding another child to your brood, now’s a great time to start trying…and if your baby-making days are over, exercise caution.
On Wednesday, planet Mercury, in retrograde (backward) movement since March 12, finally returns to direct (forward) motion, putting an end to what may have been a relatively chaotic few weeks. Mercury’s currently in your second house of work and money, and if you’ve been facing some financial setbacks as of late, those cloudy skies could show some major signs of brightening. Up the ante in terms of your spending now, and privilege quality over quantity. Yes, it might cost a little more to fill that grocery cart with wholesome, organic ingredients, but avoiding fast-food joints and last-minute microwaved meals will make the extra expense completely worth it. Apply the same thinking to your professional life, career moms: is it time to invest in some new work clothes, or maybe even a course at a local college to get you up to speed on the latest developments in your industry? Make an investment in yourself!
The last major planetary event of the week: a Libra full moon on Friday, illuminating your ninth house of travel and expansion. That summer vacation for you and your family: booked! That application for summer camp or an internship for your older child: accepted! This full moon could also shed some truth-telling light on your relationship, Aquarius, so don’t be afraid to wear your heart on your sleeve and share your innermost desires. Single moms, is it time to recreate your relationship to love? Keep your mind (and heart) open.
