Aquarius Mom Horoscope: May 7 – May 13
Get out the good china and start perusing the blogosphere for perfect party ideas, Aquarius mamas! Planet of communication Mercury is in your fourth house of all things domestic from now until May 24, and the best place for you to exercise those social muscles is at home base. Stock up the fridge with cheeses, fresh veggies, and fruit, and always make twice as much for dinner just in case your son decides to invite half the baseball team over for dinner ("Mom's cooking lasagna!").
As much as you'll love being around the people closest to you, if there's something you want to get done—as in a personal project or a work deadline—it's private time that will be the most beneficial, Aquarius. Let your colleagues know that your closed office door or the headphones you're wearing aren't meant as a personal affront, but as methods for helping you concentrate. The same goes for your home, too: dedicate the spare room as your home office or carve out a corner of the basement or attic for your personal papers, tchotchkes, or computer. It's hard enough for moms to find time for themselves, much less space, but the sooner you have a "room of your own," you'll be a happier camper.
Can't remember the last time you had coffee with your BFFs from high school or college, or made plans for a special dinner with your sister or your mom? Allow these special people back into your life, Aquarius: ask them advice about parenting, vent about your job, or maybe just play the compassionate listener. These important women WANT to support you, so why not let them?
The weekend begins on a lunar note, thanks to Saturday's quarter moon in your sign. If you were looking for a sign to apply for that new job, take the helm of a neighborhood committee, or maybe just get your hair highlighted, this quarter moon is the perfect time. Take it easy this weekend, too—don't over-schedule yourself or your kiddies, and make sure there's an hour or two free just in case you receive an unexpected invitation—or your hubby decides to take you out for an early Mother's Day celebration! And speaking of Mother's Day...with the Sun and Jupiter both in your fourth house of family on Sunday, this will be an especially meaningful day for you, Aquarius moms. Let yourself be honored and acknowledged, and then do the same for the important moms in your own life: your mother, your grandmother, your mother-in-law, and your sisters and friends. If things get a little emotional, go with it: that just shows how much you love and care about these special ladies.
