Cancer Mom Horoscope: February 13 – February 19
Think big this week, Cancer! Planet of the mind Mercury moves into your ninth house of expansion on Monday, joining up with Neptune to send powerful energy towards all things bold and adventurous. If you've always wanted to go back to school or take a class in a foreign language, this is the week to go for it! Not only will this be great opportunity to finally pursue your passions, but it's also a great way to show your kids that learning and study continue throughout life, and that it's never "too late" to chase your dreams. A bit nervous to become a student again? Why not dip a toe into the pool before you jump in whole hog: check out meetup.com for foreign-language discussion groups, or attend an information session at your local community college.
Start planning your next family vacation as well, especially since the summer will be here before you know it. Troll the internet for deals, and ask friends and coworkers for tips on places to go—whether you choose a resort on a faraway island or a house on a lake, make sure there are ample activities for both you and your kids. And speaking of being active, schedule some family activity time this week. If the weather allows, grab your bikes and cycle around town, or maybe even take a class together.
And let's not forget about Valentine's Day (as if one ever could...): the moon begins the day in Scorpio, your fifth house of romance and passion, so pull up those covers and cuddle with your sweetie before breakfast, or maybe even get the kids off to school and then head back to bed. Indulge in your chocolates and heart-shaped cookies early, Crab; by the time the sun sets, the moon will be in Sagittarius, your sixth house of health and fitness. If you had an indulgent dinner planned at the fondue place, see if there's still a table for two open at the chic vegetarian restaurant that was just reviewed in the paper. Or, head home for a healthy, home-cooked meal, perhaps from a cookbook like Heidi Swanson's Super Natural Every Day. If you're single, or if you and your sweetie want to do something other than stare passionately into each other's eyes, burn calories ballroom dancing or volunteer at local homeless shelter or with a community clean-up organization. As the late, great Bob Marley sang, "One love, one heart." Helping out others would be an amazing way to celebrate this day of love.
