Taurus Mom Horoscope: May 7 – May 13
Life's one big icebreaker this week, Taurus, except much less fear-inducing than it was on that first night of sleep-away summer camp. With planet of communication Mercury visiting your first house this week, it's time to let your inner light shine forth: invite others to get to know the REAL you. You know, the person you sometimes hush when she tries to express a great opinion or an innovative idea? This is the week to go big or go home! If you've been thinking about interviewing for a new position or joining a local neighborhood committee, there's no better time to schedule that first meeting—and while you're there, don't forget to talk yourself up. While you don't want to be dishonest about about your talents, you want to be sure that you don't under-emphasize them either.
One word of caution about Mercury's visitation to your sign, however: it can make you feel a little bit like the star of your own reality show, Taurus. In other words, you might feel more self-centered than usual, and the important people in your life (aka your hubby, your kids, and your BFF) might need some extra TLC to make up for it. If you can't be at that important soccer game because of a business meeting, or you have to cancel dinner plans with your significant other to fit in that blow-out or massage, be honest about the time conflict and find a way to make it up to whomever you've disappointed.
Speaking of double-booking and schedule conflicts, with Saturday's quarter moon in your tenth house of long-term goals and ambition, take a good, long look at how you're spending your time and energy—and with whom you're spending it. It might be time to nix those filler friends for real peeps who motivate, encourage, and inspire you.
Finally, this Sunday is Mother's Day, so a big round of applause to you and all the important moms in our lives. Don't just go along for the ride today, Taurus: if your kids and your partner need some assistance picking a restaurant or some fun activities, don't hesitate to jump in. And make sure you find some time for yourself today, too. You deserve it!
