It's true: Your zodiac sign plays a part in how you can live your best life — from which sex position you should try to targeting your dream-career direction. Romper partnered with astrologer Maressa Brown to share how every sign can put the current astrological aspects to work and enjoy even more happiness, wellness, and love every week. Here's your weekly parenting horoscope for November 28-December 4.
You're likely going to be just getting back into the daily grind after the long holiday weekend when a burst of take-charge energy strikes, thanks to a new moon in Sagittarius on Tuesday. A new moon is usually the perfect time to plant seeds you want to see grow or get the ball rolling on a big project. But because this particular new moon has a challenging aspect to Neptune — the planet of spirituality that has a way of blurring facts and rational thought — scandal and misinformation may be dominating headlines. And in our personal lives, it'll be important to try not to get carried away by unrealistic aspirations.
At the same time, lofty, ambitious goals (like shooting to breastfeed a bit longer than you initially planned or starting that workout routine to stay energized through the holidays) are encouraged, because on Thursday, go-getter Mars in Aquarius forms a positive angle to lucky Jupiter in Libra — something that happens just once this year — giving us the drive and good fortune to make a dream come true.
Finally, on Friday, the planet of communication Mercury moves ahead in Capricorn, where it'll remain until its retrograde begins on December 19. This energy is all about putting your nose to the grindstone to get any and all important to-dos (shopping for the kids' holiday gifts or maybe heavier-duty stuff like checking in on finances with your partner) are checked off your list.
Read more below to find out what this week's forecast means for your sign.
Aries (March 21–April 19)
Around Tuesday, when the new moon in your ninth house of adventure forms a negative angle to mystical Neptune in your twelfth house of spirituality, you may feel torn between taking advantage of a small window of downtime and diving into an ambitious project (like applying for jobs or researching an impending move with your baby and partner). Trust your intuition to guide you, and you'll be right where you need to be.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
You'll have a unique opportunity to pitch a plan that could offer more work-life balance around Thursday, when go-getter Mars in your tenth house of career forms a positive angle to lucky Jupiter in your sixth house of health and routine. Whether you want to work from home a couple days a week, take more pumping breaks, or tweak your schedule so day care pickup is a bit easier, you have the confidence and the vision to make a strong case for what you want. Double-check the details, then go for it.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
If you've been craving fun with your partner, you can look forward to Thursday, when go-getter Mars in your ninth house of adventure forms a positive angle to lucky Jupiter in your fifth house of romance. You may get to go on an impromptu date night, thanks to your visiting in-laws, or get excited about that fantasy you're going to make a reality on your winter vacation. Taking advantage of this flirtatious, lighthearted energy makes sparks fly.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Carving out time for loved ones will come more easily around Thursday, thanks to a positive angle between lucky Jupiter in your fourth house of home life and ambitious Mars in your eighth house of sexual intimacy. Planning a relaxing night in — maybe pizza, Finding Dory, and a prompt bedtime for the kids, followed by wine and sex for you — could very much be in the cards.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
A date night with your partner or hookup you've been planning could be stalled by aggravating roadblocks (like a flaky sitter, fussy baby, or work project plagued by miscommunication) around Tuesday, the new moon in your fifth house of romance forms a challenging angle to mystical Neptune in your eighth house of sexual intimacy. Sure, you'll be frustrated, but do your best to go with the flow — an approach that's sure to provide a far more positive, and maybe even sexier, upshot.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Around Tuesday, when the new moon in your fourth house of family and home life forms a challenging angle to mystical Neptune in your seventh house of partnership, you may want to dive into a major undertaking (like starting to work on the nursery with your partner or broaching that tough topic with your mother-in-law), only to feel like it's hard to get the momentum going. Do your best to stay mindful, mama. Any moves you make now are progress, even if it's slower than you'd like.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
Around Tuesday, when the new moon is in your third house of communication, forming a negative angle to Neptune in your sixth house of routine, you'll do well to pitch a trusted mentor or confidant that kinda out-there but forward-thinking proposal you've been mulling over (maybe like learning about hypnobirthing for your next delivery or pursuing a side hustle). Their reception may not initially be as clear or straightforward as you would like, but you'll be relieved that you spoke up and got the conversation started.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Around Tuesday, the new moon in your second house of income forms a negative angle to mystical Neptune in your fifth house of romance, fun, and kids, and you could feel torn between pursuing a gig that may end up eating into precious time with your partner and LO. Weigh out the pros and cons, and give yourself time to debate taking it. You'll soon know which way to go.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
You could be overwhelmed by a personal goal (like getting into a routine with yoga or trying a new dating site) around Tuesday when the new moon is in your sign. But because the moon forms a hard angle to spiritual Neptune in your fourth house of home life, you may be aching for the familiar, like staying with the babies before enjoying a glass of merlot, Gilmore Girls, and an early bedtime. See if you can strike a healthy balance, taking even a small step to achieving your goal. You'll feel less stressed, and maybe even right on track.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Mercury, the planet of communication, enters your sign on Friday, where it'll hang out 'til its retrograde turn on December 19. You'll get a burst of confidence that makes it even easier to have any particularly challenging or emotionally-charged conversations with higher-ups, your partner, or other family members. Whether you need their support with childcare and/or so you can fit in an activity related to self-care or your career, you'll make a solid, persuasive case now.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
You'll want to get out of your daily routine in a bold, exciting way around Thursday, go-getter Mars in your sign forms a positive angle to lucky Jupiter in your ninth house of adventure. Maybe you'll want to strap the kids in the car seat and take that impromptu road trip up to the Christmas tree farm or sign up for an intense meditation course with your partner. Whatever you choose, as long as your heart is in it, the stars are on your side.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
Around Tuesday, the new moon in your tenth house of career forms a negative angle to mystical Neptune in your sign, and although you're itching to hear an update related to personal progress at work (perhaps a raise, new responsibilities, etc.), getting a concrete answer could prove challenging. Don't hesitate to stand up for what you feel you deserve, and then, lean on loved ones (think playing with your kids and/or cooking with your partner) to help you manage your stress. You'll get the answers you seek in time.
