Capricorn Mom Horoscope: May 7 – May 13
Being a Capricorn is sometimes tricky, isn't it, mamas? With all that pressure you put on yourself to be an upstanding citizen/worker/mother/romantic partner, it's sometimes hard to express the more wild 'n crazy side of your personality. Well, the universe has heard your prayers, Capricorn moms, and some help is coming your way this week...in the form of communicator Mercury, currently moving through your fifth house of creativity, romance, and passion from now until May 24.
Let down your hair a little bit this week: finally put away those outfits made up of shades of black, gray, and navy, and invest in a few of this spring's brightest colors (hello, neon!) and loudest prints. Just because you're a mom doesn't mean you have a dress like YOUR mom, Cap! Even if you just don a bright accessory or head to the salon for some ombre highlights, the change will do you a world of good.
Spend more time with your kids now, too, and do “kid” things—instead of whipping out that laptop right after to dinner to catch up some work-related biz, play a game, have an fifteen-minute tickle session, or indulge your inner artiste with some kid-friendly arts and crafts (check the blogosphere for some great ones). Things could get a little hotter on the romantic front this week as well, so for all you single Capricorn moms, be a little bolder than usual when it comes to potential partners. You may find yourself asking out that crush, or if you're happily partnered, you may take the reins in date-planning and romantic rendezvousing.
On Saturday, there's an Aquarius quarter moon in your second house of work and money, and it could give you a pause about a purchase you were thinking of making, or even a job that you've been considering. You love beautiful (and expensive!) things, but why not find a way to have your cake and eat it too? Look for used items selling at a much lower price point, and if you've been feeling under compensated in the workplace, prepare a conversation for Monday morning. But before things get too serious chez Capricorn, let's not forget that Sunday is Mother's Day! And of all the zodiac signs, yours will truly be a day of pampering, celebration, and fun. Let others treat you like the queen you are...it's about time you got some credit for all your hard work, right? Be humble and gracious, of course, but embrace the honors and acknowledgment that come your way, too.
