Gemini Mom Horoscope: April 23 – April 29
Not feeling so cool, calm, and collected, are you, Gemini moms? The Sun’s in your emotional twelfth house this week, and its conjoined with Mars, visiting your sensitive fourth house, until Friday. Translation? Logic will only get you so far this week; instead, let your emotional side take the upper hand. Whether it’s an issue at the workplace, a call from the school about an incident on the playground, or dealing with some of your own personal issues, approach the situation as empathetically as possible. Rather than offer possible solutions, listen, listen, and then listen again. Let the people in your life know that they’ve been heard and understood, and even if you don’t agree or condone their actions or beliefs, at least have the compassion to walk (for a minute or two) in their shoes.
Do the same for yourself as well, Gemini! Carve out some time in your busy schedule for journal writing, meditation, or a long talk with a trusted friend or family member. Sometimes, just getting your feelings out of your head and onto the page—or into the ears of someone you love—is as helpful as finding that logical “fix” you’re usually searching for. Helpful women will abound this week, too, so if you’ve been looking for a mentor to help you reach that next rung on the professional ladder or maybe just a fellow mom to chat with about parenting and romance, she could be just a phone call, coffee date, or blog post away.
As the weekend begins, the Taurus Sun connects with Pluto, currently in retrograde motion in your eighth house of intimacy and shared resources. Have you been resisting talking with your honey about those investment accounts for the kids’ college, or if you’re a single mom, about taking the next step towards mingling finances with a new partner? Though the conversation may be difficult—and confronting—delving into these matters will bring the two of you closer together than ever before. And since there’s always an “on the other hand,” if you’ve been a bit too generous with either your feelings or your finances, and you’re not getting the reciprocation you deserve, it’s time to level the playing field. Whatever your situation, let down the barriers to entry preventing you from being honest about what you’re feeling—not to mention preventing you from hearing someone else out.
