Libra Mom Horoscope: March 12 – March 18
Mercury turns retrograde (backward) on Monday until April 4, and from now until March 24, this social planet travels through your seventh house of committed relationships. At times, you could feel as though you’ve stepped into a romantic time machine, one that orchestrates texts from old flames, emails from ex-husbands, and maybe even casual encounters with “the one that got away.” Whether you’re currently in a committed relationship or not, exercise caution, Libra—sure, there may still be some electricity between the two of you, but is that charge worth delving back into a relationship that didn’t fare so well the first time? And with your kids to consider, this decision is more complicated than just “I think I still have feelings for this person.” Don’t—and we mean it—make any decisions until after Mercury resumes direct (forward) motion on April 4. You’ve got too much to lose!
This Mercury retrograde phase won’t just affect your love life, ‘o romantic one…stay tuned for its effects on the other important relationships in your life. Did you once think about starting up a business with that fellow forward-thinker from the neighborhood association or last year’s school fundraising committee? Or, were you so struck by a fellow artist’s work in your community that you thought about suggesting an artistic collaboration? Make good on these great partnership ideas now, Libra, and by the first week in April, you could be well on your well to success. And in your current relationships, especially with your family, your close friends, and your colleagues, be careful not to take your admirers’ love and support for granted. Remember to acknowledge your hubby for mundane tasks such as taking out the trash, changing the baby’s diaper, and disappearing with the kids for a few hours on Saturday morning, and treat your close friend and kids to some unexpected treats (a lunch out or an impromptu gift). It’s easy to forget the specialness of these peeps, Libra, so remind yourself to shower them with love and attention.
