Your Weekly Parenting Horoscope For June 5-11
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 how to identify 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 5-11.
Love, progress, and drama are major themes this week. That's because on Tuesday, Venus, the planet of love, moves into earth sign Taurus. The four-week visit should boost your attraction to all things sensual, old-fashioned, and romantic. In other words, that dinner date night with your bae you've been putting off is finally gonna happen for real!
The planet of communication Mercury also shifts signs on Tuesday into airy, talkative Gemini, so you can expect three weeks of intensified conversations and socializing. Maybe use that opportunity to set up more playdates with your besties and their L.O.s, or do lots of creative brainstorming on the job.
Finally, Friday's theatrical full moon in Sagittarius occurs in close proximity to Saturn, which is all about tough lessons and hard work. In short, put your nose to the grindstone and maybe do something you're not too thrilled about (like finally getting down to brass tacks with the toddler's potty-training plan?). It could lead to a positive upshot...
Read more below to find out what this week's forecast means for your sign.
Aries (March 21–April 19)
If a friend or your partner has been driving you nuts (maybe by acting judgy about that new positive parenting strategy you've been trying with your L.O.), and you haven't addressed the issue yet, you won't want to hold back anymore after Tuesday, when Mercury moves into your third house of communication for three weeks. Yes, you could very well blow up initially, but try to rein your irritation in a bit to have a rational convo. That will ultimately leads to the best result.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
You're probably going to start itching to prioritize romance and one-on-one time with your bae or, if you're single, someone who gets you hot and bothered, thanks to Venus, the planet of love, moving into your sign on Tuesday. What you're craving the most is taking things slow, so plan ahead by calling the sitter and locking down that dinner res ASAP. That will help you chill out. (Well, as much as you possibly can, considering all the other ridiculousness on your plate RN).
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
You might have to have a difficult talk with your partner (maybe about TTC or what's not working in the bedroom?) around Friday, when the full moon is in your seventh house of relationships. It's probably the last thing in the whole friggin' world you really want to be doing, but zero in on the problem so you can address it head-on. Talk and action can be majorly healing.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Your calendar might go from totally blank to brimming with happy hours with colleagues and meet-ups with your mom friends, once social Venus is in your eleventh house of networking for four weeks starting on Tuesday. You're probably going to want to pull your hair out, because you can't for the life of you figure out how to juggle it all, but chill. Brainstorm with your besties to figure out brilliant child care solutions, like hiring someone's niece to watch all the kids together. You've got this!
Leo (July 23-August 22)
All you'll probably want is a spontaneous bang sesh with your partner around Friday, when the full moon is in your fifth house of romance. But of course, there will be a million and one things the L.O.s need at that same exact time, and you might feel exhausted by the time a shower quickie is even possible. That said, strategizing—and vocalizing your desires—makes it easier to feel like you've checked off all the boxes on your to-do list. Yes, kween.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Moving, renovating, or just getting the details together for a family vacation should become so much easier after Friday. That's thanks to lucky Jupiter moving forward in your fourth house of family life, where i'ts been retrograde since February. You're usually pretty freakin' pragmatic and measured in your approach to big projects, but now you can go balls to the wall. Let your imagination run wild, mama!
Libra (September 23-October 22)
Chemistry could very well be off the charts between you and your bae starting on Tuesday. Romantic Venus will be in your eighth house of sexual intimacy for four weeks, making you both horny AF. Finding ways to sneak flirtation and foreplay into your everyday schedule (like using your pumping time as an opportunity to sext them) makes it easy to take full advantage of this seriously hot aspect.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
A big project you've been putting your everything into could finally lead to a big payoff around Friday, when the full moon is in your second house of income. But before you're able to cash in, you may have to work on some finishing touches or put extra hours in. Yes, you're gonna feel like you're at your wits' end, thanks to all the other sh*t on your plate at home, but grinning and bearing it will be worth it.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
You'll feel like you're kicking major ass around Friday when the full moon is in your sign. Maybe you'll actually make it to the gym three times a week, or you'll figure out how to overhaul your kid's picky eating habits. Whatever the goal is, own your success and totally give yourself the props you deserve! But you'll also do well to figure out how to take your plan to the next level, because the more you can get down to business now, the brighter the outcome.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Talking about your health and fitness goals is sure to be easy once communicator Mercury is in your sixth house of wellness for three weeks starting on Tuesday. Just try not to get too wrapped up in what your BFF or that mom at your L.O.'s playgroup is doing. Trading tips about the Whole 30 or another fitness regimen is cool, but if you're good with whatever it is you're already doing, that's also perfectly badass.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
All you'll want to do is hang out at home with your kids and partner on Tuesday, once Venus, the planet of love, moves into your fourth house of family life. There's nothing wrong with prioritizing nesting time, but socializing at home (like having a bagel brunch with your BFFs and their kids) will help you mix things up.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
You might be coming up on an important deadline related to your professional goals around Friday, when the full moon is in your tenth house of career. You might get a ton of last-minute suggestions from higher-ups, which will drive you completely nuts, especially considering that you're just wishing you could just get home, pop that bottle of rosé, and chill with baby and bae. But the more willing you are to go all out RN, the more likely you are to get the recognition you totally deserve.
