Aries Mom Horoscope: May 7 – May 1
This week is all about planning your work and working your plan, Aries mamas! Mental Mercury, the ruling planet of all things communication-related, smooth talks its way into your second house of work and money, and from now until May 24, it would behoove you to make a list and check it twice. Been thinking about asking your boss for a promotion or monetizing that hobby (or blog!) of yours, Aries? This is the week to start researching the options. Before you jump into that all-important conversation or turn your kids' playroom into a home office, get the details necessary to make an informed and intelligent decision. Is it time to talk to the kids about how to manage their money and save for big purchases? If you've just been handing over that allowance and not setting any terms that come along with it, consider that you're teaching your kid something about money that isn't true: i.e., that he or she doesn't have to EARN money...that it magically arrives in the piggy bank on a weakly basis. We wish! For your older children, suggest getting a part-time job or doing some odd jobs around the neighborhood, and for your little ones, assign them some simple chores.
As for your personal life, Mercury in this sector of your chart sends some powerful mojo to your sensual side, Aries. Outfit the bedroom in scented candles and satiny sheets, and schedule a date night at an upscale restaurant, perhaps something prix-fixe so that you don't have to worry about ordering! Prioritize conversations with your friends and family now as well: host your neighborhood book group, have a mani-pedi date with your daughter and talk boys, or have that extra cup of coffee after dinner so that you can engage in some pillow-talk with your beloved. As the week moves into the weekend, do some volunteer work as a family or team up with some like-minded friends and organize an event or project. There's no need to be the leader now, Aries—you'll make just as many waves as just another member of the team.
And let's not forget Mother's Day this Sunday! Kudos, mamas, for all that you do for your family. Let yourself be treated like the queen you are, Aries: after brunch with the family, head to a spa for some serious pampering...and maybe even let the special moms in your own life tag-along. If your hubby asks you what you want, tell him the planets demand jewelry! We'll back you up on that, for sure.
