Virgo Mom Horoscope: April 2 – April 8
Whew! With Mercury in retrograde (backward) motion since March 12, and in your seventh house of committed relationships since March 23, it's been woefully difficult to keep things "together," as in on-time, without error, and on relatively peaceful terms...especially your closest relationships. Thankfully, Mercury returns to direct (forward) motion this Wednesday, granting you more understanding and clarity regarding the bonds you have with your nearest and dearest. There's no denying you have high standards, Virgo, but now it's time to get real. If you've been too tough on your hubby or your kids as of late, work to take a more balanced approach to their strengths and weaknesses. So maybe you didn't get that diamond tennis bracelet, much less a new garbage disposal, to celebrate your anniversary, or your kid's G.P.A. leaves a little something to be desired. You've got bigger fish to fry...like celebrating the love you have for these important peeps.
Mercury's return to direct motion might also help clarify your love life, Virgo, especially for you single moms looking for a new Mr. Right. Think seriously about what you're looking for in a relationship, and whether or not the person you’re currently dating truly measures up. Again, you may need to lower those unrealistic expectations; or, maybe it's just finally time to move on. This Friday's full moon in Libra could be the perfect time to make up your mind for once and for all: Libra's not only ruled by Venus, planet of love, but it's the sign of harmony, peace, and balance, all attributes that will help you make the best choice for you and for your family.
Speaking of Venus, on Tuesday of this week, this planet moves into your tenth house of success and long-term goals until August 7, an unusual fourth-month transit that usually only lasts four to six weeks. It's time to network like your life depends on it! If you're interested in taking the next step at your job or with a committee or organization you volunteer for, meet with role models and mentors whose advice and guidance you value and respect. Do some goal setting for yourself, and encourage your children to dream big as well. If one of your kiddies has Ivy League aspirations or wants to perform at Carnegie Hall, now’s the perfect time to submit those applications for summer enrichment classes and private lessons.
