Your Weekly Parenting Horoscope For June 26-July 2
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 June 26-July 2.
Mercury is currently in the most maternal sign of the zodiac: the sentimental water sign Cancer. You'd think this would make for more harmonious vibes at home, but this week the planet of communication is forming a bunch of intense angles to big picture planets like exaggeration-causing Jupiter and rational thought-clouding Neptune. So try to be as clear as you possibly can when communicating with your nearest and dearest with this week.
On Wednesday, Mercury meets up with action-oriented Mars in Cancer. Don't try to talk your way out of meeting a deadline with a lame-o excuse or bailing on wine night with your BFFs because you need 90 minutes of alone time. Basically, honesty is really the best policy RN, so make sure your words line up with your actions.
Read more below to find out what this week's forecast means for your sign.
Aries (March 21–April 19)
On Tuesday, you might get lost in an emotional conversation with your bae about an important goal, when Mercury in your fourth house of family life forms a positive angle to dreamy Neptune. This will feel totally exciting, but your tendency might be to get a little carried away. You might need to go back to the drawing board to make a legit action plan before moving forward in a concrete way.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
You frequently over-extend yourself, but if you signed up for one too many day camp pickups or play classes with your L.O., you might feel majorly overwhelmed on Tuesday, when the planet of communication forms a negative angle to big picture Jupiter in your sixth house of routine. This might just be a pain in the a*s you need to deal with, but you might also be compelled to adjust your schedule to be a bit more forgiving going forward.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
You may have no choice but to have an annoying conversation about money with your bae on Thursday. That's when Mercury (the planet of communication) in your second house of income opposes transformative Pluto. The good news is that being frustrated in the short-term will at least lead you to come up with some workable solutions in the long run. Well, at least one would hope, right?
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
You have a unique opportunity to be really freakin' focused on a personal goal on Wednesday, when communicator Mercury and go-getter Mars pair up in your sign. Take advantage of that shift by telling your partner that you need him or her to pitch in more with nighttime feedings, or maybe you can finally start that local activism group you've been discussing with friends. You may be surprised by just how smoothly your plan comes together once you get started.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
You are all about telling your bae about that one hot fantasy (like booking a sitter for your first night away from the baby to have an all-night bang sesh) on Tuesday. That's thanks to the planet of communication, Mercury, forming a positive angle to dreamy Neptune in your eighth house of sexual intimacy. You wanna believe that your partner is totally on the same page, but there's a chance you're not connecting as readily as you think. Being super-explicit about your expectations could preempt disappointment.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Even if you're feeling kinda socially anxious or stressed out, you'll do well to push yourself to go to that happy hour with colleagues or new mommy 'n' me group on Wednesday. That's when action-oriented Mars and communicator Mercury meet up in your eleventh house of networking, and you'll have a sweet opportunity to put your words into productive action (like maybe making new mom friends or getting a lead on a lucrative gig)!
Libra (September 23-October 22)
You might need to have a challenging conversation with your boss or your partner about your career goals on Thursday. That's when communicator Mercury opposes transformative Pluto in your fourth house of family life, putting your work-life balance in the spotlight. If you can figure out the best way to assert your needs on the job and at home, you might very well walk away with a rewarding new game plan.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Don't be shocked if you get carried away with a marathon sext session or some other form of flirtation with your bae on Tuesday. Communicator Mercury will be forming a positive angle to dreamy Neptune in your fifth house of romance. Sounds like a whole lot of fun, but if the baby's teething and your big kid keeps knocking on the bedroom door, your expectations might clash with reality. Do your best to be patient, and anticipation can make for even hotter Os when the time is right.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
You may find yourself having a wild brainstorm about an extravagant vacay or major joint purchase (like that luxe stroller with all the bells and whistles) with your partner on Tuesday. That's when communicator Mercury forms a positive angle to dreamy Neptune in your fourth house of family life. Your tendency is to be all talk and not so much realistic action, so just take a step back to see what's actually doable.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
You'll have a sweet shot at making progress on a demanding project at home or at work on Wednesday, when go-getter Mars and communicator Mercury pair up in your seventh house of partnership. If you've been wanting to put your head together with your partner to map out a new child care budget or make a play for a promotion, now's the time to go after it.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
On Tuesday, you'll be inspired to go after a side hustle (perhaps something creative like nursery decor or party planning) that could bring in extra cash, thanks to communicator Mercury forming a positive angle to dreamy Neptune in your second house of income. At the same time, you may wanna be overly cautious and pragmatic about how this will fit into your already hectic schedule!
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
You'll want to be as spontaneous as you are sentimental with your bae on Wednesday. Action-oriented Mars and communicator Mercury will be pairing up in your fifth house of romance and fun, making a spur-of-the-moment date night or sext session more than possible. Go with your gut on how to proceed. If calling it an early night to get home to your L.O. or letting all those wild thoughts simmer 'til the weekend is best, it's all good.
