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 put what's going on up in the sky to work for you and score even more bliss and balance in your day-to-day. Here's your weekly parenting horoscope for May 15-21.
Get ready for a whole new vibe on Tuesday, thanks to Mercury's shift from fiery, impulsive, aggressive Aries to deliberate, down-to-earth, sensual Taurus. So when your partner forgets to swipe some SPF on your kids, you probably won't be as quick to freak out as usual.
On Friday, there's potential for you to experience a sudden but positive shift when it comes to changing up your traditions or routines. (For instance, maybe your toddler actually turns out to be cool with sleeping in her big girl bed. Who knows? A mom can dream.) And on Saturday, the sun moves into Gemini for a month, setting the stage for lots of social events (yay, graduation/wedding season!), which will either make you feel super-popular or like you want to pull your hair out.

Your negotiation skills will be on fire once the planet of communication is in your second house of income from Tuesday to June 6. So if you want to talk to higher-ups about a raise or a more flexible schedule, go for it, mama. A bold but pragmatic approach can get you on your way to a win.

Speaking your truth should come easily once communicator Mercury is in your sign from Tuesday until June 6. So whether you're telling those local mom-shamers to quit their judging or being super-real with your partner about your sex life, you're gonna have no problem sharing your true feeings with others. And that feels freakin' amazing, so enjoy.

Your self-confidence could get a boost once the sun moves into your sign for a month, starting Saturday. So, yes, go try on those bikinis for the first time since giving birth, or take the reins on that major project at work. Basically, if it feels right, go with it, and if it doesn't, there's gonna be something even more awesome around the corner.

On Friday, you might try to take on too damn much at home and at work. That's because moneymaker Venus in your tenth house of career is opposing Jupiter in your fourth house of family life, but the good news is that you'll be due a sweet payoff (like, overtime pay or a hot bang sesh with your partner). Yes, kween.

You'll feel a sudden positive shift in your relationship on Friday, when taskmaster Saturn in your fifth house of romance forms a positive angle to change-maker Uranus. Maybe you're talking about taking a long-distance vacay this summer, or you're talking about running that 5K together. Go for it — you could have a ridiculously fun time together.

No doubt you've been thinking about a big date night that you scheduled in advance, or you have hot plans to act on that fantasy you sexted your partner about IRL. On Friday, when romantic Venus in your eighth house of sexual intimacy opposes big picture Jupiter, your fantasy can totally become a reality, but your expectations may be a bit out of whack. Do your best to go with the flow, and you'll enjoy yourself even more.

On Friday, you could have a breakthrough with your bae that comes totally out of the blue, when taskmaster Saturn in your third house of communication forms a positive angle to change-maker Uranus. Like you didn't realize that her boss has been on her case, or that he's been keeping the in-laws off your back about baby #2. Talk through the details now, and you'll feel less like, "WTF is going on?" later on.

Between Tuesday and June 6, it's probably a good time to have that relationship convo you've been putting off, since communicator Mercury will be in your seventh house of partnership. Whether you want to discuss switching up your co-sleeping schedule or you'd like to get more serious with your bae, it should be easier to tackle a tough topic with sensitivity, and then you can figure out a compromise that works for you both.

It's possible that flirting, let alone sex, has been impossible to squeeze into your already overwhelming schedule. But you could notice a sweet shift that makes things easier on Friday, when serious Saturn in your sign forms a positive angle to change-maker Uranus in your fifth house of romance. You could come up with a standing date night plan, or just find a sexy new way to connect with your bae. Get it.

You're gonna be all about opting out of commitments that just aren't working for you, like watching your neighbor's kids well into the evening or struggling to get to that spin class you love, while the sun is in your sixth house of routine for a month starting Saturday. The more you put your foot down, the more badass you're gonna feel. Hell. Yes.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18) Courtesy of Caroline Wurtzel/Romper
You might find yourself having a heart-to-heart with your in-laws, your partner, or even your LO while communicator Mercury is in your fourth house of home life from Tuesday to June 6. Getting into a super-emotional convo isn't exactly your comfort zone, but getting all the feels out there can be particularly productive RN. You might actually find you're able to address an ongoing issue with someone — and finally get some peace of mind around it. Hallelujah.

You might have an epiphany related to a work project on Friday, when serious Saturn in your tenth house of career forms a positive angle to change-maker Uranus in your second house of income. If you can help it, skip any hemming and hawing, and just
act. Higher-ups will be thrilled, and then you can enjoy all of the relaxation with your LO and fam — and OK, yeah, wine, too — over the weekend. You earned it!
