Virgo Mom Horoscope: April 9 – April 15
Been waiting for your personal total eclipse of the heart, Virgo? Pluto turns retrograde (backward) in your fifth house of romance and passion on Tuesday, and from now until September 18, you could get a little more transformation than you bargained for…okay, a lot more! This period could be equal parts dramatic and confrontational for you, Virgo, especially if you allow Pluto’s intensity to overtake your better judgment. Here’s the thing: when Pluto goes retrograde, it forces us to look at everything we’ve been trying incredibly hard to ignore, including our subconscious thoughts, our dreams, and even the truth that’s been staring us right in the face.
Since Pluto’s now retrograde in your house of romance, you may realize during this time that you’ve been focusing your energy or attention on less than savory people or projects; or, perhaps, that you’ve allowed yourself to rely too much on the attention and reaction you receive from others, rather than finding approval and satisfaction from within. Single moms, take it easy on the dating scene now, and be careful not to force any relationships into serious terrain if your partner (and even you!) aren’t ready for that major move. If it feels right to do so, pull back a bit, and use these next five months to get the clarity you need. Whether you’re single or in a committed relationship, it’s time to delve inward for your passion, not outward. Judging your sexiness or your glamour based on whether or not your hubby sends you flowers at work or parades you out and about just isn’t going to cut it during Pluto retrograde…or for the rest of your life. This is serious stuff, Virgo!
What are you passionate about? What gives you inspiration, motivation, and happiness? Reclaim those activities, and you’ll rediscover your center AND effortlessly attract the perfect audience for your talents. For Virgos who still have little ones at your feet, privilege play time now: do arts and crafts projects with your kids (and don’t forget the glitter!), bake cookies and treats for after-school snacks and for sweet older lady that lives next door, and indulge in a few extra minutes of cuddle time with the kiddies before bed. You’re busy, yes—but too busy to have fun with your kids? Pluto in retrograde compels you to get out of that mindset…if you don’t yet have the time, make the time.
Another major planetary event of the week: red-planet Mars powers forward in your sign, where it’s been in retrograde motion since January 23. Kiss the tortoise goodbye, because you’re catching up to the hare! Projects that slowed to the speed of molasses will pick up mow, and you’re more excited than ever to leave your comfort zone for greener, more exciting pastures. Onwards!
