Sagittarius Mom Horoscope: February 13 – February 19
Communication planet Mercury enters your fourth house of home and family this week, aligning with dreamy Neptune, which entered this sector of your chart at the beginning of the month. And in honor of Cupid, here's our valentine to you, Sag: Talk. It. Out. If there's any tension or any unresolved issues between you and your loved ones, open up about what's on your mind. Seek balance in these closest relationships, and maybe even forgiveness. Put an end to the guilt trips and the passive aggressiveness and just get real.
If you need assistance of some kind, don't be afraid to ask the people you love for help. Whether or not they say yes or no, the fact that you were able to make a request and not make their answer "mean" anything other than, well, yes or no, speaks volumes about your bond. Let your kids in on this process as well: encourage them to talk about what's going on in their heads, but on their own terms - especially if one of your kids is super shy and sensitive. While you don't want to push him or her to talk, what you can do is create a clearing of understanding...and whatever happens, happens. Make sure, too, that the kids get both phone and face time with grandparents, aunts, uncles, and any other family members that you're close to. Are there cousins nearby? Set up a weekend play-date, perhaps, or invite everyone over for a pot-luck.
Your home could get a boost now, too, so think of ways to jazz things up without totally breaking the bank. Create some art for the walls, perhaps, or maybe even blow up a few photographs from your last vacation. There are an incredible number of blogs dedicated to DIY home decor, so explore online for helpful ideas and tips.
And before we forget...Valentine's Day! The moon spends the first half of the day in your sleepy twelfth house, so you may be caught up reliving past (read: failed) romances, or feeling desperately inclined to spend the day on the couch, one hand on the remote, the other lost in a box of chocolates. Fear not, social Sag! The moon moves into your sign once the sun sets, and you'll feel invigorated and ready to party. If you're single, leave the kids in a babysitter's able hands, and go mix it up! And if you're partnered, slip into something sexy and head to your favorite restaurant...or enjoy the night at home, surrounded by the people you love most in the world.
