Your Parenting Horoscope For February 13-19
It's true: Your zodiac sign plays a part in how you can live your best life, from which sex position you should try to identifying your dream career goals. Romper partnered with astrologer Maressa Brown to share how every sign can put the current astrological aspects to work and enjoy even more happiness, wellness, and love every week. Here's your weekly parenting horoscope for February 13-19.
This week's most standout day as far as the calendar is concerned is Tuesday, when we celebrate all things hearts and flowers on Valentine's Day. That day, the moon will be in Libra, which is ruled by Venus and thus, tends to go hand-in-hand with romantic energy. And the moon makes a positive angle to Mercury, currently in brainy Aquarius. So, if intellectually stimulating conversation tends to spark chemistry for you and your partner, you're in luck.
Later in the week, on Saturday, the confident sun moves from air sign Aquarius into dreamy, creative, intuitive water sign Pisces, where it remains until March 20. This can influence the atmosphere to make us all a bit more artistically-inclined and focused on emotions versus cold logic and hard facts.
Read more below to find out what this week's forecast means for your sign.
Aries (March 21–April 19)
You can look forward to Sunday when the moon in your ninth house of adventure forms a positive angle to romantic Venus and go-getter Mars, both currently in your sign. You're ready to act on a bold long-term goal, like planning ahead for childcare so you can attend that yoga retreat with your sister or scheduling a long weekend getaway with your partner. Whatever you're craving RN, you'll have the energy to take it from "maybe someday" to booked and confirmed.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Whether you're spending time with coworkers outside of the office (happy hour!) or moms from your toddler's tumbling class (Fifty Shades screening?), group outings are particularly fulfilling while the confident sun is in your 11th house of networking and friendships from Saturday to March 20. Being a social butterfly feels easier than usual, and in turn, your calendar is booking up like crazy.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Finding an activity that gets you out of your comfort zone could prove exciting on Tuesday, when the moon in your fifth house of romance forms a positive angle to communicator Mercury. If you're single, bonding with your BFFs — over politics, the Grammys, The Bachelor, whatever! — could feel like the perfect way to celebrate. If you're attached and managed to score a sitter, check out a museum exhibit or try cooking an exotic meal. The experience should lead to the kind of conversation that makes sparks fly.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Consider calling the sitter and scheduling your V-Day date night not for Tuesday night but for Thursday, when the moon in your fifth house of romance forms a positive angle to dreamy Neptune. The energy sets the stage for sexy escapism, so could lead to pursuing a long-held fantasy — like starting a flirtatious convo with someone on Bumble or even just getting your annual chocolate-covered strawberry fix with your partner.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
You'll want to share ongoing fantasies with your partner or someone special while the confident sun is in your eighth house of sexual intimacy from Saturday to March 20. This burst of confidence makes the usual barriers (like, you know, being totally exhausted between work and the baby!) seem less intimidating than they did before and makes you feel like you can really fulfill even your wildest desires.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
You'll find it ridiculously easy to finally dive in and start a major project with your bae (like trying for baby number two) or a colleague (like pitching that impressive client) while the confident sun is in your seventh house of partnership from Saturday to March 20. This aspect also emphasizes impulsive, aggressive energy you're not always the most comfortable with, so don't hesitate to keep comparing notes with your partner, and you'll feel even more in sync.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
You tend to prefer to plan ahead, but consider embracing spontaneity on Tuesday when the moon in your sign forms a positive angle to communicator Mercury in your fifth house of romance. You can't really go wrong if you go with the flow. Whether you're staying home and baking heart-shaped cookies with your toddler and partner or you're able to get your mom or sister to come over so you can sneak away for a couple of hours to check out that wine bar down the street, you're sure to have a memorable time.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Consider sharing one of your favorite creative outlets (baking, painting, or jewelry-making) with your baby and/or partner while the confident sun is in your fifth house of creativity and romance from Saturday to March 20. Your creativity is basically on fire, and doing what you can to soak up carefree fun with loved ones is particularly rejuvenating. So, show them how much your favorite art form means to you, and you'll do wonders for your bonds all around.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
If you want to have quality time with your bae or meet up with a potential partner, zero in on Sunday when the moon in your sign forms a positive angle to Venus and Mars in your fifth house of romance. You'll feel downright determined to get the kids set up with their cousins for a play date so you can go out or to make sure a quickie happens in the shower. And why shouldn't you be? You deserve whatever it is you've been dreaming of.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
You may find yourself slammed with a high volume of gratifying work on Tuesday when the moon in your 10th house of career forms a positive angle to communicator Mercury in your second house of income. And you'll feel torn between hitting an important deadline and spending one-on-one time with your partner or Galentine's Day pedis with your BFF who managed to score child care for you both. If you'd more relaxed once your work is 100 percent done, go that route. Then, you'll make up for any lost time with your loved one in a memorable way.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
That creative project you've been tinkering with off and on for a while now could really take off while the sun is in your second house of income from Saturday to March 20. Talk to your partner about ways he or she can help you out with the kids so you can devote a bit more time to hitting certain realistic but ambitious moneymaking goals. You could be surprised how quickly you get into a flow — and see well-deserved rewards.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
On Tuesday, when the moon in your eighth house of sexual intimacy forms a positive angle to Mercury in your 12th house of spirituality, you won't even be jealous of friends who are posting snaps of fancy dinners out on the town. You're all about getting your baby down ASAP, then throwing on pajamas, pouring that fancy wine to watch your favorite DVR show and later, getting off with your partner or solo. You know self-care is always vital for you, but prioritizing it right now is exceptionally pleasurable.
