Cancer Mom Horoscope: May 7 – May 13
Get yourself out of your shell, Cancer mamas! Though you're more comfortable surrounded by your nearest and dearest, and in the comfort of your own home, the planets have something else in mind for you, 'o hermit crab. Mercury, planet of communication, moves into your social eleventh house this week, and from now until May 24, you'll take more pleasure from being out and about than you will from the comfy cushions of your extra-large couch.
You're a sensitive soul—just a small part of why you're such a great mom—and now it's time to apply those skills to a group or a team that needs your talents. Participate in a project at work with your colleagues, plan a neighborhood Memorial Day party with your neighbors or fellow playgroup moms, or maybe even volunteer your skills to the PTA or your children's classroom. So what if you feel a little awkward introducing yourself to potential partners? Embrace your fears (instead of continuing to allow them to hold you back), and take heart in knowing that it'll all get easier...but only with practice.
Got a blog, Cancer? Whether it's something you created just for relatives or a potential moneymaker, dedicate your time to it this week: add pictures, hire a graphic designer to polish up your logo, or consider adding advertisements. Apply the same level of energy to your Twitter and Pinterest accounts as well; people will hang on to your every word now, so why not take advantage of this powerful time for self-expression?
On Saturday, thanks to a quarter moon in Aquarius, your eighth house of intimacy and shared resources, you'll be feeling the need to add some hot, hot heat back into your life. Honor these feelings not just by donning some sexy lingerie (although, it's never a BAD time for that, is it?), but also by allowing yourself to the things that you love to do. Have you slipped into super-mom mode and lost your individuality? Giving yourself a dose of passion will attract passion your way (single moms, hope you're paying attention!). And may we be the first to wish you a Happy Mother's Day, Cancer! While an intimate gathering might be your usual first choice, this Sunday, you'll feel more inclined to celebrate with a large group. Gather all of the important moms in your life, and together (with your families, of course), celebrate love, joy, and the fine art of mothering.
