Libra Mom Horoscope: April 9 – April 15
It's time to turn that beautifying magic that you love to share with the external world inwards, mama Libra! Transformational planet Pluto begins a five-month retrograde (backward) phase in your fourth house of home and family on Tuesday of this week, and its energy pushes you to truly transform your relationship with your humble abode. Because you're usually the mom who’s out and about from morning to dusk, heading from one extracurricular activity (or social engagement) to another, it’s easy to understand why your home may not be your priority. While we’re pretty confident it LOOKS beautiful (whatever you touch has the tendency to shine, lovely Libra), how does it feel? Pluto in retrograde reveals our blind spots, the areas that we’ve been too afraid to look at for fear that they’ll throw us off course—take off those blinders, and stop ignoring those dark corners that the vaccum can’t reach or those junk drawers you think no one will ever see.
Don’t be afraid to think energetically, or spiritually, now: does your little one have nightmares every night, or does he/she have trouble falling asleep? Work with your child to design a bedroom that feels energetically wholesome—allow him/her to pick the paint color, a new bedspread, and maybe even a new location for the furniture, and you may just have a bed to yourself and your hubby once again. Make sure your house has room for you in it, as well, Libra: carve out a nook for yourself to create, meditate, or just relax in. Even if it takes until September to set up that basement office or attic study, not only will you feel more comfortable in your home, but also in your own skin. Pluto's magic, indeed! Privilege family time now, Libra—no matter how difficult it might be to lasso everyone together for the once a week family dinner or that summer vacation to see faraway relatives, it's truly a must.
Pluto in retrograde might also lead you deep into your past, especially if you're still working on creating healing and peace around your relationship with your own family. Don't be afraid to go "there" now. Speaking of healing, there's another planetary occurrence this week: red planet Mars's direct (forward) turn in your twelfth house of closure and completions. Mars has been in retrograde movement since January 23, and its return to forward motion helps you take necessary strides towards the completion of any lingering projects, as well as to connect with helpful mentors and advisors. Are you in need of some major r and r, Libra? Ask your hubby, your parents, or helpful friends to help handles meals and childcare, and use the time to pamper and soothe your soul.
