Virgo Mom Horoscope: February 6 – February 12
It's time to face facts this week, especially about some unfinished emotional business - and with the help of Tuesday's full moon in Leo, your twelfth house of healing, the cosmos has your back, Virgo. This is healing moment for you, a chance for you to accept some hard truths about yourself and an opportunity to let some of that heavy baggage from the past go. Though owning up to the good, the bad, and the ugly about yourself and your relationships might be difficult, consider this an important opportunity to model forgiveness to your children. Let them see you as a person who accepts responsibility for her actions, someone who never (not ever) lets her past trauma seep so far into your future that she's paralyzed. No one loves a grudge more than you, Virgo, but you know that's not the biggest game you could be playing.
Tuesday's full moon could also shed some light on an elderly person in your life; make time to call or visit this person this week, or do them a small favor, such as dropping off groceries or bringing in the mail. As for romance, this week Venus moves into your eighth house of intimacy and shared resources, which bodes well for pre-Valentine's Day celebrations! Dip into your discretionary spending budget and pick up some sexy lingerie - even if you're not currently in a relationship, just wearing it under that business suit, uniform, or jeans will give you a thrill, Virgo. Book a couple's massage for next week, or arrange for Grandma to stay with the kids for a night while you escape with your sweetie to a nearby hotel or B&B. It's easy for couples to lose touch with each other as the years go by, so take the time to relearn (or learn for the first time) more about the person you’re sharing a life with.
This Friday, Saturn turns retrograde (backwards) in Libra, your house of work and money, until June 25. While retrogrades can cause slow-downs and mishaps, they also offer us the opportunity to see where we've cut corners or veered off course. Use the next five months to nail down a budget that works for you and your family; yes, you might have to tighten your belt a notch or two, but it's time to get serious about managing your money smarter and more efficiently. If you've already made the first payment for horse camp or agreed to let your son join a traveling baseball team, either reconsider those plans, or let your kids know they'll have to contribute to the pot. Sounds like a teaching moment if there ever was one!
