Leo Mom Horoscope: April 2 – April 8
It's time to emerge out of that get the kids to school/head to work/pick up the kids/make dinner/fall into bed matrix, Leo! And with people-loving Venus's entrance into your eleventh house of friendship and teamwork on Tuesday, there's no better time than now to prioritize your social life. While there's no denying the importance of bringing home the bacon and getting your kids fed, dressed, and ferried to all their many activities, make sure there's room in your schedule for fun! Help organize a community barbecue, become a class-mom at your child's school, or join a book club, knitting group, or neighborhood committee—the more folks you're around now, the better you'll feel...and the more impact you'll have on the world in which your family lives.
Remember, this Venus phase is all about team: while you have a tendency to want to be CEO of everything from your daughter's Girl Scout troop to the national government, you've got quite enough on your plate, thank you very much. Be sure you've got the structures in place to keep you on the move: if you're not already a believer in online calendars and smart phones, get on board now, Leo. While "there's an app for that" has become one of those ubiquitous clichés, there's no denying the power of technology to help a busy mom. Being able to access your calendar (and the calendar of your husband and your kids) from anywhere you are is one of those lifesavers that we now take for granted...how did Grandma ever do without it? Did this latest Mercury retrograde (backward) phase thwart your best efforts to upgrade your phone or your laptop? Thankfully, Mercury returns to direct (forward) motion on Wednesday of this week, and you've got the green light to make that oh-so-necessary investment.
Mercury, now powering forward in your eighth house of intimacy, helps you get closer to the people in your life...especially your significant other. If you’ve felt somewhat stilted as of late, and maybe even unable to express yourself via physical intimacy, things should become easier now, and you won't feel as fearful and anxious about making yourself vulnerable. Have there been some arguments or misunderstandings regarding your family's financial future? Discussing long-term investments (maybe even the baby's college fund) with your hubby will feel much less stressful.
On Friday, a full moon in your third house of communication and community activities brings a wave of positive change into your midst, Leo. A project you've been working on for the past six months could come to fruition today, or you may have some extraordinarily interesting and stimulating conversations. Spend time with the kiddies out and about this weekend: ride bikes, visit your local library, and pay a visit to your city's botanical garden.
