Libra Mom Horoscope: February 6 – February 12
This week could start off on a festive note, Libra, thanks to a full moon in your social-butterfly eleventh house. Make like the fashionistas at New York's Fashion Week (also happening right now...) and host a party for friends, a glamorous artist's salon, perhaps, or maybe even attend an industry networking event. Is there a project at your child's school that you'd like to help out on or a mom's group you'd like to be a part of? Offer your talents and services for a team effort, Libra, and if there's not something that motivates you, start a group of your own.
Now's also a great time to start a blog, Twitter account, or get back into Facebook: you're an aesthetically minded sign, so why not give others the benefit of your good taste and discriminating standards? And no, it doesn't have to be a mommy blog, and your Twitter name doesn't have to be "Momstheword" - express whatever you're passionate about, from crafting, to interior design, or maybe even the upcoming political election.
Also occurring on Tuesday is Venus's move into Aries, your seventh house of committed relationships. For the next few weeks, lean on your partner for support; indeed, in a relationship, half the battle is sometimes letting the person you love know you need help staying afloat. This is a positive time for you and your sweetie, Libra, an opportunity to relearn each other outside of your roles as mommy and daddy. Go on dates, flirt, and maybe even hold hands under the dinner table. Single? You might just meet your match now, so keep your heart and your schedule open to possible Valentine. Seriously, would it kill you to hire a babysitter and go out to a nice dinner? Do it!
Finally, on Friday, Saturn begins retrograde (backwards) movement in your sign, and from now until June 25, you'll be forced to examine yourself in some tough (yet important) ways. Use this period to ponder your goals, Libra, not to mention the image that you're putting forth into the world. Do you feel as though your kids don't respect you, or that your role in the family as a whole is sometimes undermined? Take responsibility for the ways in which you've fostered this unease—picking the kids up late for school, forgetting soccer practice, or being no-nonsense one second and "the cool mom" the next—and make it your goal to be more consistent. The key word here is integrity. Yes, we all make mistakes, but having integrity is recognizing those mistakes and striving—and then doing—better the next time.
