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 targeting your dream-career direction. 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 December 12-18.
Get ready for a dose of holiday cheer and positivity, thanks to a week filled with surprising, lucky aspects. On Monday, the confident sun in Sagittarius forms a positive angle to Uranus, which rules sudden change, in Aries, setting us up for a spur-of-the-moment switch in plans. Your sitter may come through at the last minute so you can have a sexy date night with bae, or a hectic day at work with rando projects being thrown at you left and right could result in well-deserved recognition.
Then, on Tuesday, the full moon in Gemini is not only the last full moon of 2016, but a supermoon to boot — so it'll be big, bright, and have a magnifying effect that drives us to tie up loose ends. Maybe you're making over your professional path so as to be a SAHM, or you're reassessing your relationship. Whatever the case, a chapter you end now will allow you to move forward in a healthier, happier way.
It also bears noting that the planet of communication, Mercury, goes retrograde for three weeks on Monday, December 19, so before it throws a wrench in your plans, you'd be wise to use this week to buy those plane tickets, double-check crucial financial matters, sign important paperwork, or get big purchases out of the way.
Read more below to find out what this week's forecast means for your sign.
Aries (March 21–April 19)
If you've been thinking about going back to school or getting credentials for a side hustle (like becoming a coach or mentor for other mamas), you might get an exciting nudge toward making that dream a reality around Monday, when the confident sun in your ninth house of higher education forms a positive angle to revolutionary Uranus in your sign. You may have to act quickly to make it happen, but if your gut tells you it's right, go for it!
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
On Saturday, when the moon in your fourth house of family life forms a positive angle to the confident sun in your eighth house of sexual intimacy, you'll likely want to stay in, because your plans for a night spent at home are so much more fun than any party invite. All you want to do is bake some cookies with the kids, take cute clips for Snapchat, and then have some seriously hot one-on-one time with your partner. If you're single, you may be ready to take things with that person you've been flirting with to the next level—on your home turf, of course.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
You may find yourself Kondo-ing TF out of your kid's stuff and your own, packing up and giving away whatever isn't bringing you joy anymore around Tuesday, when the full supermoon is in your sign. Or maybe you're preparing to let go of something you know just needs to be out of your hands now, such as an important pitch to the higher-ups at work. Whatever direction you choose to go in, let the universe guide you. It'll feel so liberating!
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
On Thursday, the planet of communication, Mercury, slows down in preparation for its retrograde in your seventh house of partnership on the 19th, so sharing what's in your heart with a loved one can allow you to preempt mixed messages further on down the road. Whether you've been wanting to get to the bottom of a conflict related to your parenting styles, or you want to talk about furthering your commitment, being candid now will pay off in the long run.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
A big group project (like hitting a end-of-year goal at work or planning an event with other local moms) could culminate around Tuesday when the full moon is in your eleventh house of networking. It's natural for you to step into the spotlight to receive recognition for your work, but a couple of your teammates may not be as comfortable taking credit. Doing your best to make sure everyone gets a round of applause will have everyone invovled feeling awesome!
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Around Monday, when the confident sun in your fourth house of your home life forms a positive angle to revolutionary Uranus in your eighth house of shared money, you and your partner or a loved one could get sudden, exciting news about that house you've been thinking of making an offer on, the investment you went in on together, or another financial win. If you're worried the news is too good to be true, do the usual recon, and then celebrate, mama!
Libra (September 23-October 22)
You might find yourself feeling like you're on the precipice of a big, exciting undertaking around Tuesday, when the full supermoon is in your ninth house of adventure. Maybe you're starting your third trimester and thinking about your birth plan or you're plotting how to advance your career by picking up new skills. You could actually be perfectly happy daydreaming about what comes next, but using this time to flesh out your game plan sets you up for an even sweeter outcome.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Don't be afraid to express what's working and what really is not when it comes to your bedroom life, especially around Tuesday, when the full supermoon is in your eighth house of sexual intimacy. An honest conversation could prompt you to come up with a smart, concrete action plan, like scheduling sex sessions (even temporarily) to get back in sync physically with your partner, or asking loved ones for help with child care so you can get out on dates. You deserve to have your fantasies fulfilled!
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
Spending time with your nearest and dearest—your baby and partner or even your extended family —may come a lot more easily than you thought, around Monday when the sun in your sign forms a positive angle to revolutionary Uranus in your fifth house of romance and kids. The key is being OK with making plans on the fly, because even though it may initially feel impossible, spontaneity (like saying "screw it" to cooking that big meal and just ordering pizza!) could be the key ingredient in making the moment more magical.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
A piece of the puzzle of your busy life might just not be working for you anymore around Tuesday, when the full supermoon is in your sixth house of wellness and routine. You'll know in your gut if that toxic friendship needs to end, or maybe you need to ask for more time off for maternity leave. Take a stand now, and you'll be so relieved going forward.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
Around Thursday, communicator Mercury begins to slow down in your twelfth house of spirituality before going retrograde for three weeks on Monday, the 19th. You'll do well to meditate on how you can further your self-care and tackle some of your emotional issues from the past. Then, consider checking in with loved ones and asking them to support you as you take on some of these challenges. You've got this, mama!
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
You're ready to make a big move with loved ones—perhaps literally, or maybe in terms of ushering your partner through a significant milestone —around Tuesday, when the full supermoon is in your fourth house of home life. Even if it feels overwhelming right now, do your best to be mindful and present. As you move ahead, you'll look back on this exciting time with even more clarity and gratitude!
