Your Weekly Parenting Horoscope For May 29-June 4
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 May 29.
Memorial Day weekend means that it's summer, basically, so time to bust out your cute sunnie and celebrate with a bottle of rosé. But on Monday, you'll want to be wary of the fact that aggressive Mars, which is currently in changeable Gemini, is opposing bossy Saturn, which is in ballsy Sagittarius. Perfectionism, workaholism, and conflicts that catch you off-guard might be the theme of what's supposed to be a pretty chill day.
Relationships are also on everyone's radar this week. On Thursday, Venus in dynamic Aries forms a positive angle to Saturn, urging you to step up and be even more committed and present with your partner — or, if you're single, to seek out a connection. And on Sunday, Mars moves into maternal Cancer for six weeks, so you may end up putting even more pressure on yourself than usual to be a supermom. Oof!
Read more below to find out what this week's forecast means for your sign.
Aries (March 21–April 19)
You're always striving to be on your A-game, but don't be surprised if you're even harder on yourself after Sunday, once go-getter Mars moves into your fourth house of home life for six weeks. You'll probably have a burst of energy that makes it even easier for you to apply for preschools, start decorating the nursery, etc. But there's no need to drive yourself absolutely nuts, either. Having some chill-out time is totally OK, too.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Think about pulling that big, brilliant idea you've had for boosting your income out of your pocket on Saturday, because that's when the sun in your second house of cash will form a positive angle to lucky Jupiter. You'll be all about owning your passion and going to bat for yourself right now, which is so damn inspiring, mama. The financial payoff — and maybe even extra work-life balance and flex time — could have some sweet side effects later on down the road.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
If you butt heads with your bae or a BFF on Monday, you'll be pretty damn stressed by the fact that neither of you are willing to budge. Maybe you're not at all on the same page about how to discipline your L.O., or how to deal with your MIL. That's because aggressive Mars in your sign is opposing tough lesson-teaching Saturn in your seventh house of partnership. The good news is that whatever resolution you come to can offer valuable insight into your relationship. Hey, that'll be worth the struggle, right?
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
On Sunday, you might feel like someone lit a fire under your butt to help you accomplish your loftiest goals, from dealing with your baby's sleep regression to starting that postpartum fitness plan, thanks to go-getter Mars' six-week visit to your sign. By all means, go for it, but don't forget to give yourself a well-deserved pat on the back (or wine — either one, really) along the way.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
Committing to something major with your bae (like trying for baby #2 or planning your first vacay together since welcoming your L.O.) comes naturally on Friday. That's when lovey-dovey Venus forms a positive angle to serious Saturn in your fifth house of romance, making it easier to take relationship matters to the next level.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Prepare for a sh*tload of texts and emails and phone calls blowing up your phone on Sunday. That's when energetic Mars will be in your eleventh house of networking and friendships for six weeks. You'll feel overwhelmed as hell, and you might be like, "How am I supposed to meet my friend for yoga or go to happy hour when I've got five gazillion things to do between the kid's pediatrician appointment, and all these damn deadlines?" but chiiiill, mama. You can juggle your responsibilities better than you realize!
Libra (September 23-October 22)
Expect the unexpected from your bae on Saturday, when romantic Venus pairs up with surprise-loving Uranus in your seventh house of partnership. He or she might pull a really sweet stunt, like cleaning up or organizing around the house, or they might do something that drives you nuts, like booking a sitter you haven't signed off on. Either way, just go with the flow. That's your best bet.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
You could be tempted to sign up for an unlimited package at that rock climbing gym or book a yoga retreat with your BFF while go-getter Mars is in your ninth house of adventure for six weeks, starting on Sunday. Yeah, you might be surprised by your own spontaneity, but then again, you are so frickin' intuitive that you trust yourself to know what you're doing.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
You might feel like you can't get a grip on the reality of an important situation, like a strategy you're taking with your toddler or how to negotiate your maternity leave, on Sunday. That's because the confident sun is forming a negative angle to dreamy Neptune in your fourth house of family life, clouding judgment. Bounce your ideas off your bae and take a step back, and you'll get the clarity you need.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
You're gonna have crazy laser focus on getting sh*t done with your bae while aggressive Mars is in your seventh house of partnership for six weeks, starting on Sunday. Whether you want to find the right long-term birth control plan or start a savings plan to buy a house, you're determined to get the ball rolling. As long as you don't push too hard, it will all come together.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
Family plans could conflict with a bigger group plan on Monday. That's because aggressive Mars opposes serious Saturn in your eleventh house of networking, making it even more of a pain in the ass for everyone to get on the same page. A blowup with someone may be impossible to avoid, but hey, at least it's an opportunity to stand up for what you want.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
You should totally plan that trip to the nearby park, gardening sesh with your toddler, or at-home family photo shoot on Saturday, when the confident sun in your fourth house of home life forms a positive angle to lucky Jupiter. The energy is right to bond with your partner and L.O. and boost the comfort and love quotient of your nest overall.
