Your Weekly Parenting Horoscope For June 12-18
It's true: Your zodiac sign can offer insight into plenty of random moments in your everyday life, from how you can best tackle your toddler's worst tantrums to identifying your career goals. Romper partnered with astrologer Maressa Brown to share how you can make what's going on up in the sky work for you and score even more bliss and balance in your day-to-day. Here's your weekly horoscope for the week of June 12.
There's a ton of frenzied planetary action this week, which could possibly send your head spinning. On Tuesday, Mercury, the planet of communication, forms a positive angle to lucky Jupiter, and you could be making big plans for a family vacay or talking about moving forward on a major investment with your bae. Then Mercury turns around and forms a negative angle to Neptune, which skews rational thought, and you could be left feeling like all the details are blurring together to create a ridiculous amount of confusion. Ugh.
On Thursday, the sun opposes taskmaster Saturn, and you won't be able to shy away from a challenging situation, whether it's with your boss at work or with another authority figure (think your pediatrician or someone else who's a stickler for following the rules).
Read more below to find out what this week's forecast means for your sign.
Aries (March 21–April 19)
If you and your bae have a shared goal (like finally introducing your baby to a bottle), you guys could get totally carried away on Tuesday, when communicator Mercury forms a positive angle to lucky Jupiter in your seventh house of partnership. If you're suddenly feeling overwhelmed and like your partner is speaking a different language than you, chill out. It's all good. Remember, you don't have to figure out every last detail right now.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Prepare for a seriously positive conversation with a higher-up or another influential person on Tuesday, when communicator Mercury in your second house of income forms a positive angle to lucky Jupiter. You're gonna get a major pat on the back for your brilliant ideas and you could very well see the path you need to follow for a payoff. Of course, you're baffled by how you're gonna juggle this into your already intense schedule. Just take one step at a time, mama.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
On Thursday, don't be surprised if you and your partner are at each other's throats about the best way to handle a tough situation. That's because the sun in your sign will oppose restrictive Saturn in your seventh house of partnership. Whatever conflict pops up, consider it a teachable moment for the both of you. You'll be better off in the long run if you tackle any issues head-on.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
You're about to get oh-so-freakin' real with yourself about some major personal goals on Friday, when Neptune (which usually clouds rational thought) begins its five-month retrograde in your ninth house of adventure. Maybe you're determined to plan that long-distance trip with your L.O., or maybe you're trying to go back to school. Whatever it is you can't seem to stop dreaming about, you need to totally trust your gut right now.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
Prepare for a wake-up call related to your love and sex life after Friday. That's when Neptune begins its five-month retrograde in your eighth house of sexual intimacy, and you're going to see a potentially challenging but important issue (like talking about trying a new position with your bae) in a new light. No rush, but getting the ball rolling can lead to major sexual healing. Oh, yeah.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Sorry, mama, but confronting an uncomfortable issue with your partner or another relative will probably be unavoidable on Thursday, when the sun opposes restrictive Saturn in your fourth house of family life. In other words: nope, you can't keep dodging those incessant requests from your in-laws for FaceTime sessions with the baby. The good news is that being assertive and tackling the situation right now will keep you from getting a major headache later on.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
If you've been pretending like you're not about to hit a wall because you're so stressed out, you're gonna be forced to pinpoint legit solutions after Friday. That's because Neptune (which usually clouds rational thought) is starting its five-month retrograde in your sixth house of routine and wellness. This could also mean feeling more confident about talking to your boss about flexible hours that make daycare drop-off and pick-up easier, or being more aggressive about scheduling your workouts. Go for it, mama.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
You might end up having a deep, sexy convo with your partner about an intense fantasy on Tuesday, when communicator Mercury forms a positive angle to lucky Jupiter in your twelfth house of spirituality. Don't worry too much about scheduling child care and getting a date night on the calendar. The conversation alone — and the anticipation it inspires — is enough to have you both feeling ridiculously horny.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
After Friday, it's time to get real about a massive ordeal you've been putting off, like scheduling a move or pinpointing your birth plan. That's because Neptune is starting its five-month retrograde in your fourth house of family life. The more willing you are to look at the truth, and all the moving parts of this issue related to your home life, the sooner you'll be able to come up with a workable solution. You've got this.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
You know something's gotta give for you to create a better work-life balance, but you may very well have a fire lit under you on Thursday, when the sun opposes restrictive Saturn in your twelfth house of spirituality. You may have no choice but to deal with a conflict that arises as a result of you being overwhelmed. No, it's not your fave thing to do, but reaching out for help and mapping out a step-by-step game plan is your best bet right now.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
You could get wrapped up in intense conversations with a partner or a close friend about some grandiose fantasy (like planning a camping trip with the kids or starting a new Etsy biz) on Tuesday. That's because Mercury is forming a positive angle to big picture Jupiter in your ninth house of adventure, encouraging optimistic communication. When that energy passes, you may feel less motivated to act on your desires. But you could also channel all that enthusiasm into a realistic game plan.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
You're gonna want to pull your damn hair out while trying to have a basic conversation with your partner or someone else near and dear on Tuesday. That's thanks to Mercury in your fourth house of home life forming a negative angle to confusion-causing Neptune. No matter how hard you try to map out the baby's feeding schedule or a workable plan for your MIL's visit, you feel like you're speaking different languages. Take deep breaths do some yoga to get you in a more centered place ASAP.
