Sagittarius Mom Horoscope: May 7 – May 13
We hate to tell you, Sagittarius, but as much as you want to count running after your toddler, carrying your first-grader's way too heavy backpack, or pacing the floor after an argument with your pre-teen as exercise...when it comes down to it, you’re just avoiding hitting the gym. But this week, thanks to Mercury's tour of your sixth house of healthy habits, self-care, and organization from now until May 24, you'll be psyched to turn things around. Take charge of your schedule and systems like never before, and hold yourself accountable for eating right and getting the exercise you need.
Book yourself and your family some much-needed appointments with the doctor, rearrange your home office with usability (not necessarily design) as the motive, and dig through some of those piles of paper threatening to overtake your sanity. While you don't want to get TOO structured or indulge your inner perfectionist too much, pay careful attention to how you're spending your precious time. If social networking is sucking hours out of your work schedule (and you've got a babysitter on the clock), maybe it's time to create special slots for those blog, Twitter, and Facebook updates. We get that this is part of every entrepreneurial Sag's daily life, but look for ways to manage these parasitic tasks more efficiently.
Back to that perfectionist thing, mamas: this week, your high standards could become a bit of a detriment to your interpersonal relationships; in other words, enter Momzilla! You can run, but you can't hide, Sag. If you find yourself being overly critical of not just yourself, but your kids, your hubby, and even your friends, nip those sanctimonious urges in the bud. Get out of the office for a quick walk around the block, let your hubby help your eldest finish that last-minute science project, and maybe even take a time out from one of your friendships. Not pulling back could result in a hasty move or harsh comment, and you're probably better off taking a proverbial "chill pill" instead.
On Saturday, the quarter moon in your third house of community has mini-adventure written all over it: buckle the kids in the car (or strap on their bike helmets) and take a little trip to part of your town that you've never explored; or, do some digging in your community garden and meet some new peeps from your hood. Get out and about, Sagittarius, and don't be surprised if you meet a kindred spirit or two. Sunday is—drumroll, please—Mother's Day! The Sun and Jupiter are aligned in your sixth house today, making it a great day to ask for (and receive!) support from your nearest and dearest. Let your kids and your hubby cook you breakfast or help you with a project you're working on, and honor your mom (and other special moms in your life) with simple acts of kindness. Today's the perfect reminder of why it really does take a village.
