Capricorn Mom Horoscope: March 12 – March 18
Your relationship with your home could feel a bit strained in the next few weeks, Capricorn, thanks to Mercury’s retrograde (backward) turn, which begins on Monday in your domestic fourth house. Although this Mercury retrograde phase lasts until April 4, the chatty planet will be in this particular location until March 24, taking its not-so-subtle tolls on your home and family. Look around, Cap: what isn’t working for you in your current living arrangement? Do your children’s bedrooms need to be redecorated to better suit their age, or are you feeling overwhelmed by the amount of cleaning and straightening you have to do on a daily basis just to make things look presentable?
This week, join forces with your partner and your kids to come up with some projects that you can tackle as a family: work out a chore schedule so that one person (ahem, YOU) doesn’t feel quite so over-burdened, research some inexpensive and easy ways to redecorate and update the look and feel of the bedrooms, and maybe, just maybe, carve out some space for a home office, a sewing room, or a study—somewhere where you can feel at peace and most importantly, at home. Finding time for quality together time as a family could be tough now, so create specific days and times for sit-down dinners, movie nights, or even trips to see relatives. Mercury retrogrades bring the past to life, so pore over old photo albums and scrapbooks with your kids, and maybe even go visit a few relatives who you might not have seen in months…or even years. Some old girlfriends from your past could pop up as well, so make the time for a coffee-date catch-up session—you might have more in common now than ever!
And thanks to a “heavenly trine” formed by Mars, Jupiter, and Pluto, this week bodes especially well for your love life, Capricorn. Show another side of yourself to your partner, and practice being more emotionally available than you usually are; in other words, “I’m okay…really…seriously!” just isn’t going to cut it. If you’re on the hunt for a new romantic partner, cupid’s arrows could strike this week…as long as you keep that heart of yours open to a new love. You can’t be single forever, Cappy!
