Libra Mom Horoscope: April 23 – April 29
Come a little bit closer, mama Libra—to yourself, that is! The Taurus Sun (currently in your eighth house of intimacy) links with assertive Mars (visiting your twelfth house of healing and completion work) until Friday, pushing you to dig deep and trust your intuition. As hard as it might be to find some time alone in the course of the week, you need it now more than ever. Be sure this time is focused on YOU—not your kids, your hubby, your boss, but YOU. If you're working on a project or a goal, focus on the elements of your work that light you up and make you feel excited to cross that finish line—and do your best to stop worrying about how others are judging your efforts. Want to connect more with the people in your life? You'll be able to crack the code into people's personalities and idiosyncrasies this week, helping you give advice and problem solve. But not everyone's problems are worth your time, are they? Not to sound ungenerous, but you've got your own life to live and your own family to worry about...limit these intuitive skills of yours to one or two special peeps only.
Think, too, about how to create greater intimacy with your romantic partner, especially if you've both been getting carried away with work and worrying about the kids. Is it time to schedule a romantic getaway so that you can get back on the same page? And remember, Libra: even if you're dying to be swept off your feet and feted with flowers, gifts, and impromptu words of affection, there's no better way to create that for yourself than dishing it out. Treat your partner to a dose of romantic fervor this week. A great way to do this: engage him in conversation and really listen (and we mean it—keep those ears perked!) to what's on his mind. Just knowing that someone cares enough to hear you out is pretty darn romantic when it comes down to it, especially if you're used to competing for attention.
Dedicate this weekend to family time: schedule a round of activities for you and your kids, invite over nearby relatives and cook up a feast for all to enjoy, or have a long Skype session with Grandma and Grandpa. Have you and your significant other been thinking about expanding your brood? Postpone those baby-making efforts until you’ve had time to think carefully about whether or not you're really ready for such an important change.
