Aries Mom Horoscope: April 2 – April 8
Is that a collective sigh of relief we hear, Aries mama? After three weeks in retrograde (backward) motion, Mercury returns to direct (forward) motion on Wednesday of this week, helping to clear the air in your personal life. You may have a few bridges to mend now, so before things progress too far down the combative road they began on, extend the olive branch. Go the extra mile to let someone know that you know you've done wrong, and you're ready to make amends. Send a bouquet of flowers to the friend you may have snapped at, write a hand-written note of apology to your child's teacher for getting irate at the parent-teacher conference (it happens), or treat your hubby to a beautiful love letter. Yes, it may take a little extra work to make up for this latest Mercury retrograde period, but in the end, all your relationships (including your relationship to yourself) will get stronger as a result.
This transition will be eased by the presence of Venus in your third house of communication, adding mega-doses of sweetness to your usually sharp tongue. From now until August 7, you'll not only be able to say it with a smile, but that smile of yours will be ever so in demand. If you thought your schedule couldn't get more packed, you've got another thing coming: during this extra-long Venus transit, don't be surprised if you find yourself running from play-date, to birthday party, and then back to another play-date—and then home just in time swap jeans for power-suit for that networking event. It could be tough to balance your busy social life with that of your children's, so stay on top of your schedule and take care not to overbook!
Have a cause you'd like to become the voice of, or a project you're excited to launch? Ask your older kids show you the ins and outs of Facebook and Twitter (you know they're the real experts), and share your message with the world! Aries moms with jobs or volunteer gigs in some kind of publishing or media work will find it easier than ever to spread the word. Thanks in part to all this messaging, a potential collaborator could come out of the woodwork, spurred on by Friday's full moon in Libra, your seventh house of committed relationships. Are you ready to seal the deal and make this partnership—for business or for pleasure—official? Dig deep, and find the answer that truly resonates now, Aries. Is it time to kiss that guy you've been dating...you know, the one that's not really "Daddy" material...goodbye? Do so with love, and then prepare to move into the next chapter of your love life.
