Aquarius Mom Horoscope: April 9 – April 15
The line between dreams and reality could feel thinner than ever now, Aquarius mamas, and the universe is pushing you to pay attention. Pluto, planet of transformation, begins a five-month retrograde (backward) phase on Tuesday, and this powerful planet is in Capricorn, your twelfth house of healing, completion, and fantasy. From now until September 18, Pluto challenges you to dig dip and truly listen to the messages that arise from your daily journaling, your dreams, and even your meditation.
Don't try and go this road alone—or continue to pretend that everything's fine when it's definitely, assuredly, not: over the next five months, consider working with a therapist or seek out a support group, or maybe just confide in a trusted mentor with the wisdom of experience. When's the last time you and the kids took a trip to see Grandma or Grandpa or cuddled up with old photo albums and stories from the past? Aquarius moms, you can run, but you can't hide. Whatever experiences you had, they made you who you are today—and it's time you confronted them, skeletons and all.
A great way to work your way through this confronting, yet potentially very productive, period? Give of yourself to others, and encourage your family to do the same. Whether you volunteer for a charity with which you already have a relationship, or you find another one that speaks to you and your family's hearts, aiding others less fortunate will you two valuable gifts: perspective and appreciation. But it's not all hard work, Aquarius! Stay tuned for moments of great creativity and inspiration; indeed, the time you spend roaming the halls of your favorite museum, sitting in the audience at the ballet, or even listening in on your child's piano lesson could be your access into the deepest part of your psyche.
Another major planetary occurrence this week: aggressive Mars, in retrograde since January 23, powers forward into your eighth house of intimacy on Friday. From now until July 3, you'll feel motivated to take on matters of shared finances (especially long-term investments like college funds and your 401K), and you may even receive a welcome financial windfall. Have things been a little lackluster between the sheets for the past few months? Thanks to Mars's direct movement, the ball is officially in your court, Aquarius—don't be afraid to tell you partner what you want (and when you want it!).
