Cancer Mom Horoscope: March 12 – March 18
If you haven't yet explored the ins and outs of LinkedIn, Cancer, this week would be the perfect time to delve in! On Monday, Mercury begins a retrograde (backward) trek that lasts until April 4, and from now until March 24, it will be traveling through Aries, your tenth house of ambition and success. For moms bringing home the bacon, opportunities for professional growth and expansion could arise from your connections with former colleagues and managers, or maybe even old friends working for amazing companies. It's time to reconnect with that bucket list as well...you know, that list of pie-in-the-sky dreams for your and your family's future? If it's been your goal to get your child into that hotshot nursery school or magnet middle school, now's the time to make that final push: gather the necessary paperwork (check it twice, of course), and your child might be starting September in the perfect educational setting. Just remember, Cancer: Mercury retrogrades always cause setbacks with communication, technology, and travel, so be prepared: invest in an external hard drive, give yourself enough time to get the kids to school or soccer practice, and stay tuned for misunderstandings ranging from innocent cases of miscommunication to rage-worthy incidents of disastrous proportions.
Also, it'll be raining men this week, so unless you're ready to head for the hills, why not join forces with those able-bodied members of the opposite sex? Whether it's for romance, platonic coffee dates, or meetings to discuss your professional or financial future, keep yourself open to new relationships with men. Also occurring in the friendly skies this week is three planets forming a "heavenly trine," giving you a productive boost with all things social. Meeting new people can sometimes be difficult for you, Cancer, but this week, you'll be anything but a wallflower. Take advantage of this moment: hire a babysitter and head out with friends, or if you're single, let yourself be introduced to someone new. As long as you're not too overly judgmental, there's a strong chance you'll meet some new friends...and even a future romantic partner. Encourage your kids to spend time with new and different peeps as well: visit a playground across town or invite the new family in your neighborhood over to dinner.
