Your Weekly Parenting Horoscope For June 19-25
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 19-25.
This is a mom-powered week if ever there was one! It all starts on Wednesday, when the confident sun, which tends to affect your general mood, moves from communicative, frenetic Gemini into nurturing, emotional Cancer. The shift might make you want to stay closer to home, so you can enjoy wine and BBQ in the backyard and snuggle with your baby and/or bae.
On Friday, the new moon will be in family-oriented Cancer, which means that it's prime time to tackle a major project that hits close to home — like having an important conversation with your partner, or tackling a difficult dynamic you have with another relative head-on. Basically, this week is a good time to be in touch with your genuine emotions and take action.
Read more below to find out what this week's forecast means for your sign.
Aries (March 21–April 19)
Whether you've been wanting to get your L.O. potty trained or you want to put the kibosh on breastsleeping, you'll do well to get the ball rolling around Friday, when the new moon is in your fourth house of family life. You'll have the vision and the energy to tackle even the most challenging parenting goal. Yes, you can—and you freakin' will!
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
You can look forward to sparks flying with your partner on Saturday, when romantic Venus in your sign forms a positive angle to transformative Pluto. You're gonna be all about getting carried away in a dramatic way (like trying something new and intense in the bedroom) and it'll be a total game-changer. In other words, you're gonna wanna get that sitter booked STAT.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
That brilliant moneymaking scheme you've been toying with should become a reality after Wednesday. That's because the confident sun will be in your second house of income for a month, and turning your ideas into action could lead to a payoff. You may just want to talk it through with your partner, and make sure it fits into your already totally-packed sched. After that, though, you've so got this.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
It's kinda like your very own personal New Year's around Friday, when the new moon is in your sign. You've got the green light to make a resolution, set a powerful intention, or just dive headfirst into a major project you've been putting off, like discussing that maternity leave or professional proposal with your boss. As long as you go with your gut, you're gonna be exactly where you need to be. This is totally an auspicious time for you, mama.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
You're usually the life of the party, but don't be surprised if you kinda have the nagging urge to fly under the radar starting on Wednesday, while the planet of communication Mercury is in your twelfth house of spirituality for three weeks. You might just be going through a lot emotionally and would prefer to talk it out with your partner instead of hitting up that big reunion or happy hour. Own those low-key vibes. Just take care of you!
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
If you feel like you need a friggin' dose of fun with your guy or girl, there's no better date night for you this week than Saturday, when flirty Venus forms a positive angle to transformative Pluto in your fifth house of romance. Consider doing something unconventional, like eating an exotic cuisine you usually wouldn't try. Yeah, you'll be worried about the short time away from your L.O. (and the pumping and/or check-ins with the sitter), but the resulting bang sesh and hot new dynamic with your bae could be so worth it!
Libra (September 23-October 22)
Your tendency will be to take on way too much on Sunday when Mars, the planet of action, forms a negative angle to big picture Jupiter in your sign. What's new, right? But seriously, you might have already signed on to volunteer, drive the kids around from this activity to that one, bake for your friend's kid's party, hit an insane deadline on a work project, etc. But if you let your previous commitments get in the way, you're gonna put yourself on the fast track to getting totally burned out. If there's any way you can enlist some help or trim your to-do list, you'll be #grateful.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
You're usually all about sticking to what's tried and true (like that same restaurant for date nights or a bedtime routine for the L.O.s), but consider getting out of your comfort zone around Friday, when the new moon is in your ninth house of adventure. Shaking things up by going for a spontaneous lake trip or having sex before you go out with your bae sets a new, exhilarating tone.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
There's no better time to talk about your desires than on Wednesday, when the confident sun pairs up Mercury with the planet of communication in your eighth house of sexual intimacy. Being super-open about your needs (maybe about how you wouldn't mind quickies while the baby's down for a nap, or how you need a bit more time after giving birth to be in the mood regularly) can get you feeling a lot more in sync with your partner.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Ooh, mama! Sexytime will be yours if you want it on Saturday, when romantic Venus forms a positive angle to transformative Pluto in your sign. Going with the flow isn't exactly your forte. But try to let go (let your MIL watch the toddler, even though you know she's going to give her that dinner you vetoed long ago), and you could have the sort of evening that makes you fall for your partner all over again. Aww...
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
In an effort to have more work-life balance, consider switching up your fitness plan or having a talk with your boss about a more flexible schedule. A particularly good time to act would be around Friday, when the new moon is in your sixth house of routines. The energy of the moment is all about doing your best to be assertive and aware of your own needs. If you can pull those two things together, chances are you'll feel a lot more at peace with your daily grind.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
Whether you're flirting with your bae via daily sexting sessions or knocking it out of the park swiping around on Bumble, your love life is lighting up while the confident sun is in your fifth house of romance for a month, starting on Wednesday. Yes, you're slammed with the usual to-dos and want to devote yourself fully to your L.O.'s needs, but remember, you also deserve the time and space for fun—and, you know, orgasms! Seriously, though, get after it, mama.
