Cancer Mom Horoscope: February 6 – February 12
Tuesday brings a full moon in your second house of work, money, and self-confidence, Cancer, making this week a great time to focus on your personal financial or professional goals. Every mom is a working mom, but if you've got another job on top of your mothering duties, you might be acknowledged for your hard work, offered a promotion, or even presented with a raise.
Are you waiting for your sweetie to gift you with something in particular for Valentine's Day? Consider getting it yourself! Sure, nothing beats receiving a token of someone's love...but there's also something mighty rewarding about being your own best Valentine, Crab.
Have you been letting someone walk all over you, or perhaps even take advantage of your generosity? You might need to stand up for yourself at this date and fight for your worth. Grab hold of your family's reins now, too—draw up a master schedule of activities, chores, and even bedtimes, and make sure everyone sits down together for dinner at least once a week.
Carve out some time for yourself as well, Cancer: are there any industry events and networking dinners that could put you in the same room as heavy-duty movers and shakers in your field? Find a babysitter or have your partner watch the kids, and go make a splash. If you're invited to a black-tie event, perhaps even a Valentine's Day ball, say yes! You deserve to be waltzed around a dance floor, no matter how frivolous it seems.
This week isn't all fun and games, however: on Friday, Saturn begins a retrograde (backwards) phase through Libra, your fourth house of all things family-related, and it lasts until June 25. You might be called to your child's school to address a behavior problem, or one of your children (your daughter, most likely) could need some extra TLC. Examine your relationship with your own mother, as well: does it require some closure work, perhaps, or even an airing of some deep-seated guilt or resentment? Don't give up on what might be the most important relationship in your life, Cancer.
Get attuned to your physical environment now, too: if you feel tied to the home, find some homey-like places in your 'hood that you can escape to, even if it's just for an hour or two at a time. Crawl out of that shell and honor your need for personal space.
