Scorpio Mom Horoscope: April 2 – April 8
With all the sexy heat that's about to make its entrance into your life, Scorpio, you could be penning your own “50 Shades of Grey” before the fall! Venus, planet of love, beauty, and harmony moves into your sensual eighth house on Wednesday of this week, and from now until August 7 (this is an extra-long Venus visitation, by the way), you'll feel as randy as a teenager, and maybe even as emotional. Instead of looking elsewhere for that balance and satisfaction you're craving, delve inward—reclaim your self AND your sexiness by building up that stable core. Find an exercise program that focuses attention on your mind and body, such as yoga or dance, and maybe even leave the kids with the hubby or Grandma and head to an ashram or a deserted beach for some alone time. Shared finances also benefit from Venus's loving embrace of your eighth house, so if you were thinking of starting that college fund for your little ones, putting some money into an IRA before the April 15 deadline, or maybe even sealing the deal on that lake house for your summer vacation, go forth with gusto, Scorpio!
Been thinking about taking the leap into a joint business venture with some powerful women from your network? Don't second-guess a great idea with some serious moneymaking potential—no planet loves a woman-owned business more than Venus! On Wednesday of this week, Mercury finally returns to forward motion (it's been in a three week long retrograde phase), adding even more passion into the mix. Mercury's currently residing in your fifth house of romance and creativity, helping you to communicate those eighth-house intimacies with clarity and ease...a welcome change from the past three weeks of confusion and miscommunication! If things have been especially tense between you and your partner, there's no shame in starting some couples' counseling, Scorpio; it's way too easy to sweep tough issues under the rug, especially when your time's being monopolized by kids, finances, and getting dinner on the table before nine PM.
The week ends on a healing note, thanks to Friday's full moon in Libra, your twelfth house of healing and completions. Is it time to set some new limits in some of your relationships? If there's not equal give and take between you and your significant other (or even between you and a business partner), it's time recreate the boundaries between what's acceptable and what's not. Make sure you're not being too passive or playing the role of martyr mommy; otherwise, prepare to accept the consequences of bearing the weight of too much stress. This weekend's also a great time to forgive a grudge or make amends...in other words, it's time to move on, Scorpio!
