Aquarius Mom Horoscope: March 12 – March 18
Make new friends, but keep the old, Aquarius! On Monday of this week, Mercury turns retrograde (backward) in your social third house, and while it’s always great to meet new people, reinforcing your tried and true relationships will be a much better use of your time this week. What with bringing home the bacon, taking care of the kiddies, and (oh yeah), nourishing your relationship, it might have been difficult as of late to prioritize your friendships. Don’t despair! It’s never too late to schedule a lunch date, a weekly coffee catch-up, or maybe even a weekend BBQ with your combined families.
Are you new to the neighborhood, and both your kids and you are still floundering for your niche? Focus on your passions and your hobbies to find that perfect place to hang your hat. Love crocheting? Visit a local fabric store and make some inquiries about clubs. Is your daughter in love with horses and horseback riding? Stop by a local farm or riding school and see if lessons are offered. Participation, not necessarily, conversation, is the great connector this week.
And speaking of conversation, with Mercury retrograde in your third house until March 24, it’s ever so important that you think before you speak, Aquarius. There’s no such thing as “idle” gossip, so be careful not to say anything about anyone that you wouldn’t feel comfortable saying directly to his or her face. It’s always a good philosophy to have, but not an easy one to keep—especially during Mercury retrograde.
This week, focus on activities close to home—visit museums and galleries in your neighborhood, do a few arts and crafts projects with your kids, or maybe even make some headway on a personal project, such as a blog, newsletter, or research for an upcoming community initiative. As for romance, single Aquarian moms could feel the pull towards a special someone this week, thanks to a “heavenly trine” in the intimate zones of your chart. Don’t worry so much about saying the “right” thing, and just speak your mind—chances are, you’ll find the perfect way of expressing your feelings.
