Aries Mom Horoscope: January 30 – February 5
This week, dreamy and spiritual Neptune eases its way into Pisces, the mystical sign it rules. From now until 2026, Neptune's energy will reverberate through your twelfth house of completion and closure, shutting doors on the past so you can open new ones leading to the future.
Think, Aries: where are you trying to do it all alone? You're an independent mom, and whether you have a significant other by your side or not, it's often you who bears the brunt of the parenting duties. A reminder: you don’t have to suffer through life. It's time to take people up on their offers of help, Aries. Allow a friend to watch your kids so you can get a night to yourself, sign up for a yoga class at your local gym, or schedule a session with a therapist or a social worker to help you work through some of your emotional blind spots. Ever considered acupuncture or Reiki? Alternative therapies are recommended now, especially if more traditional methods haven’t been effective. You're not alone in the world, Aries, no matter how often it feels that way.
Participate in service projects in your local community with your kids in tow: visit a local nursing home or work with an organization like Habitat for Humanity to build a home for a needy family. Giving back to the world will remind you of your power to create positive change—and not just in your own life, but in the lives of others.
Watch your health this week, too. No matter how busy you are with your hubby and the kids, honor your need for a solid night's sleep. Avoid any electronic devices an hour before bed (those emails aren’t going anywhere) and do some deep breathing or meditation before you head into dreamland.
Still haven't started that 2012 fitness plan? Don't let your fears of looking sweaty or disheveled keep you from hitting the gym. Treat yourself to a few Lululemon separates that get you psyched to change into your gym gear.
