Gemini Mom Horoscope: March 12 – March 18
On Monday, Mercury turns retrograde (backward) until April 4, and it begins its journey in Aries, your eleventh house of friends and group activity. Because Mercury retrograde phases always create a bit of worry and stress (something moms never have to deal with, of course...), we'll start with the positive aspects of its journey through this part of your chart: reunions! This week, get in touch with old friends and colleagues you've fallen out of touch with—your college roommates, perhaps, or your favorite coworkers from your last job—and reconnect for a lunch date, dinner date, or maybe just a quick cup of coffee. Are there ways in which you can collaborate on a future project or get an old project back up and running? Explore the possibilities! And even if you just end up sharing pictures of your kids and comparing notes on pediatricians, babysitters, and schools, reconnecting with these old peeps will be well worth the time and the effort.
And now, for the typical Mercury retrograde warnings: since your eleventh house also rules technology, from now until Mercury goes direct on April 4, make sure you back up computer files to an external hard drive (including pictures and tax documents), save your work every few minutes, and make sure you don't accidentally send a text to the wrong recipient (we've all been there...embarrassing!). Now's not that the time for hosting that big bash chez Gemini, either, so save it for the first weekend in April rather than tempting fate...or Mercury! The universe has something else up its sleeve for you this week, Gemini: three planets form a "heavenly trine" in the most intimate areas of your chart. One of your children may come to you with a problem, or a fellow mom could ask your advice regarding parenting or romance. Allow these conversations to happen organically, and be that compassionate and loving listener you were born to be. An existing romance could also deepen significantly, or for you unattached Gems, you might meet someone who has those perfect dad-like qualities you've been looking for.
