Aquarius Mom Horoscope: January 30 – February 5
After 14 years in your sign, Neptune, planet of dreams and mysteries, makes its exit from Aquarius on Friday. If you’ve struggled to define yourself or find your path during this time, this planetary movement could come as a major relief. Lingering and persistent questions, such as, “Who am I?” or “Where am I going?” will take leave from your life, and a sense of peace and wellbeing will steady those rocky waters of self-awareness.
This week, take time to think about what you’ve learned over the past decade and a half. Perhaps you’ve found the balance between pleasing others and pleasing yourself, or you’ve become more emotionally engaged with the people in your life, not to mention more present overall. Indeed, these maturations might have led you directly into the most intimate of all relationships…motherhood!
Now, however, with Neptune’s entrance into its home sign of Pisces, your third house of work and money, it’s time to turn your focus towards your career. Does your job align with your passions, Aquarius, and does it offer you the flexibility you need to be the mom you want to be? The next 14 years could give you the chance to not only express yourself creatively, but also to earn a living from doing just that! Want to change the world? Think about working for a non-profit, or if you’re financially secure, dedicate your time and talents to volunteer work for cause you believe in. Look not only at how you’re making money, but also how you’re spending it: start saving now so that you can send your talented teen to music camp this summer, or sign up your toddler for a nursery school that emphasizes arts education. And for yourself, check out Julia Cameron’s “The Artist’s Way”. You’ll not only find your own inner artist (she’s there!), but you’ll learn how express this side of yourself to the larger world.
This week, watch your spending, especially if you find yourself dipping into your savings so your kid can have a “My Super Sweet 16”-esque blowout. How do you expect your child to resist peer pressure if you can’t?
