Leo Mom Horoscope: February 6 – February 12
Find the spotlight this week, Leo...'cause if you want it, it's yours! A full moon in your sign on Tuesday illuminates your talents, and if ever there were a day to take a chance on self-expression, this is it. Have you been hard at work on a project or goal since your birthday? Everything could come together today. Be audacious now, and don't be afraid to go out on a limb for something you believe in.
This Tuesday would also be a great time to do something for yourself: when's the last time you spent a night at the theatre or ate out at your favorite cafe (you know, the one with no highchairs and a full bar...)? To thine own self be true, Leo...we see escargot in your future.
Another planetary transit occurs early this week, as well - planet of love Venus moves into Aries, your ninth house of travel and study. If you can, plan a getaway now with your significant other or put together a weekend with your closest girlfriends from high school or college. Set a good example for your kids and sign up for a continuing ed class at your local university or finish that Bachelor's you're only four credits away from. Seeing mom hunker down for a night's worth of homework could inspire even the most reticent of students to up their game! Ca-ching, indeed. A class with your sweetie would be great for Valentine's Day, so look into something interesting this week, perhaps a course in wine-tasting.
Venus's presence could also inspire you to explore your spirituality. If you and your family belong to a local religious institution, see how you can all become more involved, whether through weekly meetings, volunteer opportunities, or even youth groups or religious education.
The last major cosmic event of the week occurs on Friday, as Saturn begins a period of retrograde (backwards) movement through your third house: from now until June 25, pay careful attention to not just what you're communicating, but HOW you're communicating. Work to keep your tone even and respectful, and make sure to order your thoughts before you offer your opinion. If you're disciplining your children, be consistent - in other words, don't let them get away with murder one day, only to ground them for life (and for something much less offensive) the next.
Are you letting video games, the iPad, and the TV play babysitter (hey, we've all done it)? Instead, make a concerted effort now to expose your kids to more culture: visit museums, encourage them to read and journal, and go on field trips to nearby neighborhoods and towns. Not only are they bound to learn new things, but you'll be learning together...priceless, right?
