Gemini Mom Horoscope: April 9 – April 15
What’s gotten into you, Gemini? For a sign that’s usually all about partnership (you are the sign of “The Twins,” after all), you’ll be feeling less inclined to play well with others for the next five months, thanks to transformative Pluto’s retrograde (backward) turn in your eighth house of intimacy on Tuesday. From April 10 until September 18, you could feel much more suspicious than usual, and perhaps even jealous. Rather than spend your nights worrying about what your babysitter REALLY does with the kids while you’re at work, or why your husband or significant other brought you flowers four nights in a row (um, where do we sign up for THAT hubby?), it’s time to get to the bottom of these rather shadowy sides of your personality.
Are you buckling under the weight of residual and long-buried feelings of sadness and disappointment, or feeling pressured to be that “perfect” mom with a perfect body, sex life, and bank account to match? This Pluto retrograde phase is all about clarity, Gemini, and no matter how hard it is for you to express what you’re dealing with, it’s seriously time to clear the air. Take off those blinders, STAT! This is especially important when it comes to your long-term finances and investments. For Gemini moms too scared to even think about your child’s college fund or your retirement plans, be bold and face your fears. If not now, when?
The eighth house is also the most sensual part of your chart, making this five-month period a great time to reclaim your sexiness and reconnect (intimately, that is) with your significant other. Open up about what fires up your mojo. Feeling tentative? Pluto isn’t the only planet on the move this week: on Friday, energetic Mars turns direct (forward) in your fourth house of home and family until July 3. If you’ve grown out of your current abode or need to transition from a nursery to a toddler bedroom, now’s the time! Set a few summer goals and start taking steps this week. Plan some fun activities with your kids now, as well—a family vacation between now and July would be the perfect way to celebrate Mars’s visitation to the most family-oriented part of your chart.
