Virgo Mom Horoscope: March 12 – March 18
With communication planet Mercury’s backward turn in your eighth house of intimacy on Monday, things could seem a bit, well, mysterious, Virgo! Before you don your detective’s hat, trench coat, and pipe, it might be good for you to know that you’ll be the mysterious one…and the people in your life will be the ones digging deep to find out your details. Because you’re normally a very private person, and you often to prefer to deal with your problems privately rather than broadcasting them out to the world, it’s oh so important now that you DO lean on the people you love for support. We’ve said this many times, Virgo, but we’ll say it again: busy moms can’t afford not to delegate. Why be a martyr mom when you don’t have to? Allow your closest friends and family members to come to your aid, whether you need a compassionate shoulder to cry on, someone to watch the little ones while you visit the dentist, or just someone to help you work out an issue you can’t wrap your head around. It’s easy for you to get lost in over-analysis, so before you spend hours with your head in your hands, ask for support.
Your eighth house is also home to issues of sex and intimacy, and because Mercury retrogrades can invite people from the past back into the present, single mamas shouldn’t be surprised if a past lover or ex-husband pops back into the picture. Sure you want to go down that road again, Virgo? Wait until Mercury returns to forward motion on April 4 to make your final decision, and until then, keep things open. For Virgos who are happily coupled, spend more time between the sheets with the one you love—even if it means hitting the sack right after dinner or waking up early to squeeze in some extra snuggle time. Open up about what’s on your mind now, as well. As hard it might be to enter into this dialogue, the less baggage your relationship is forced to bear, the better.
This week also features a “heavenly trine” in the expansion zones of your chart. Now’s a great time to take a class, do a workshop, or maybe even take an impromptu family trip. If you’re feeling unmotivated, stretch yourself out of your comfort zone and try something new.
