Libra Mom Horoscope: May 7 – May 13
So you're not getting the answers you need, Libra moms—is that any reason to throw in the towel and declare a relationship or a project kaput? No way! With Mercury traveling through your eighth house of mystery this week (until May 24), you might have dig deep and find that undisclosed information out for yourself. Read between the lines if you have to, and make sure you're not coming across as suspicious and untrustworthy yourself. If you haven't yet opened up in a truly meaningful way to a friend, what makes you think that she's going to share her innermost thoughts with you? Don't just give as good as you get now—give better, smarter, and more completely.
And speaking of giving of yourself, it's time to give your romantic relationship the once-over. Get more intimate with your sweetie...and no, we don't necessarily mean you have to break the bank at La Perla for some fancy-shmancy lingerie that you'll wear once and then banish to the back of your underwear drawer. How about just having a conversation about something other than logistics? Put a date night on the calendar this week, and maybe even arrange your kids' social schedule so that they're at Grandma's or a friend's house when you return. You may even find that connecting with your partner is easiest when your passions are a more significant part of your life, Libra. Reconnect with your interests now, and practice falling back in love with yourself. It sounds cheesy, but hey—there's nothing sexier than a woman who knows (and loves) her own mind. Single moms, are you listening? Before you start another round of venting to the tune of "Where have all the good men gone?" take a look in the mirror and start to like what you see.
Shared finances also come under the spotlight during this Mercury transit, helping you and your hubby come together regarding investments and financial goals for the future. Still reeling from tax season or starting to worry about next year's educational expenditures? Get the conversation started now and start taking some steps towards more financial freedom for your family.
As the week moves into the weekend, a quarter moon in your fifth house of creativity and passion on Saturday encourages you to be more playful and artistic. Do an arts and crafts solo or with the kids, whip up one of Jim Lahey's no-knead breads or pizza (just Google for recipes), or go see a performance at your local community theatre. How about an early Mother's Day celebration? Indeed! Mother's Day itself could be a little tense on an interpersonal level, so keep things as active as possible. Eschew that fancy brunch and maybe explore some nearby botanic gardens or an outdoor art fair.
