Aquarius Mom Horoscope: February 13 – February 19
While everyone might be consumed by thoughts of bouquets and boxes of chocolates this week, Aquarius, your mind's focused on the main event: MONEY. Communication planet Mercury joins Neptune in your second house of work and money on Monday, making this truly the week that "money talks." Take a look at your own budget, and figure out where it's working and where it's not. Are you spending too much cash on things that you don't need? Get clear about your necessities (making that mortgage payment, putting food on the table, and saving for your kids' futures) and your luxuries (do we even have to list them?). Teaching moment alert: if your children receive an allowance or are the lucky recipients of birthday and holiday checks from relatives, help them create a budget of their own - maybe even take them to the bank and open up their first savings account, so they can start saving for that skateboard, American Girl doll, or new baseball uniform with their own earnings. Voila! Money Management 101.
Are you new at your job, or are you interested in starting a business of your own? Do your due diligence, Aquarius. Make sure every contract you sign has been read over by a lawyer, and don't count your chickens before they're hatched. And connect with others in your field, as well! Head to industry networking events, set up your profile on LinkedIn, and start thinking about creating a website (if you don't have one already).
Just don't get so busy that you forget to think about romance...Valentine's Day is this Tuesday, and thanks to moon's movement from Scorpio, your structured tenth house, to Sagittarius, your super social eleventh house, you could be in two quite different moods. As for the first half of the day, wake up early, get everyone off to school, and focus on the tasks that need doing. By the evening, you'll be feeling a hundred times lighter, and more inclined to get into that V-Day spirit (thank goodness!). Throw a party, perhaps what caused you to spend the morning stressed, and if you're single, ask your friends to bring over an eligible bachelor or two to make things a little interesting. Partnered Aquarians, cuddle later - this evening, rock out as the “tremendous twosome” that you are.
