Sagittarius Mom Horoscope: April 2 – April 8
There’s nothing worse when your family’s just not getting along…especially when you think you’re the one that’s supposed to be holding it all together! News flash: no one’s THAT amazing, Sagittarius mama. And since Mercury’s been retrograde (backward) since March 12 (since March 23, it’s been retrograde in your domestic fourth house), the planets haven’t been exactly helpful. On Wednesday of this week, however, Mercury finally turns direct (forward), helping you mend fences, clear the air, and recreate some of your closest relationships. Did you go to bat for your sensitive child one too many times over the past few weeks? Or maybe you took on your sister, mother, hubby, or even you BFF’s problems as your own, thus venturing into the territory of co-dependency. Resign from the role of martyr mom, and let your peeps work things out for themselves. Your mantra now: no judgment.
On Tuesday, planet of love and harmony Venus moves into your seventh house of committed partnerships. Sagittarius, this is an extra-long four-month visit by Venus, and the perfect chance for you to take advantage of the powerful people in your midst. Looking to kiss that baby weight from ten years buh-bye? Call up a recommend trainer or nutritionist, and have a trained professional develop a diet and exercise plan tailor-made to your body. When’s the last time you and your daughter had a “mommy and me” trip to the ballet or the theatre, or you and your partner actually had a real conversation…and not just about finances and soccer games? Prioritize these special relationships now, and be on the lookout for new faces with whom to collaborate.
And speaking of your hubby, Venus is all about L-O-V-E—the kind of love you want to celebrate with the rest of the world! In the next few months, make sure you have one or two date nights planned a week…and somewhere other than your comfy couch (make coffee at home and spend the savings on a babysitter, perhaps?). Single moms, socializing is where it’s at: get out and about with friends, register for some singles’ events, and allow your friends to send you on some blind dates.
The last major planetary event of the week is Friday’s full moon in Libra, your eleventh house of groups and teamwork. Stay tuned for amazing gatherings of friends and neighbors around this date; or, if you’re a mommy entrepreneur, this is a great day to launch a website, announce a new initiative, or make an important connection with future collaborators. Full moons also shed truth-telling light on situations that aren’t working out: are there children in your kids’ play-groups that seem like negative influences, or friends of your own that qualify as certified energy vampires? It could be time to part ways, Sagittarius.
