Your Weekly Parenting Horoscope For October 24-30
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 horoscope for the week of October 24 through October 30.
We can all look forward to a new moon in Scorpio on Saturday, which will bring an intense, emotional, perhaps even passionate energy that sets the perfect tone for Halloween. New moons always offer us opportunities to plant seeds we want to see grow. Sounds like serious business, but this one in particular offers water signs (Cancers, Scorpios, Pisceans) a chance to take a timeout from everyday life with kids and crank up the drama in a positive way. This means that water mamas will get a well-deserved dose of fun and adventure.
Unfortunately, not all the aspects this week are light-hearted. On Saturday, the planet of action and sex Mars in Capricorn squares off against Uranus — which rules all things related to sudden change — in Aries, encouraging out-of-the-blue, extreme behavior. So, steel yourself for temper tantrums that happen at the drop of a hat, a moody AF partner, or a quickly assigned project with a speedy deadline.
That same day, the planet of love Venus pairs up with taskmaster Saturn in Sagittarius, making us all feel like we should prioritize responsibilities over partying. Talk about boo! Our best bet is striving for balance and just trying to do all of the things we want to do, in moderation.
Read more below to find out what this week's forecast means for your sign.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Around Wednesday, when the confident sun pairs up with the communication planet Mercury in your eighth house of sex and intimacy, you'll feel absolutely compelled to talk about your desires with the current ~object of your affection~. Putting yourself out there feels more natural and gives him or her the info they need to make your fantasies a reality — even if it's just strategizing how to squeeze in a quickie while the kids are trick-or-treating this weekend.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You may want to take the kids apple picking or help them with last-minute costume fixes this coming weekend, but make sure to get a sitter lined up for a date night, too, because around Sunday, the new moon is in your seventh house of partnership. A romantic evening with your partner or that guy from Bumble — maybe hitting up a Halloween party or horror-movie festival — could end up marking the beginning of a whole new, magical chapter.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Around Sunday, when the new moon is in your sixth house of wellness, you'll get a burst of confidence that has you feeling differently about your current fitness plan. You could be inspired to invest in a Boba and go for hikes with your L.O., check out the fall leaves, or to start a mommy-and-me yoga class. Basically, you're feeling strong and powerful, mama, and that's because you are. Believe in yourself, and you can reach any goal.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Around Saturday, you could be zeroed in on striking a bit more of a mind-body balance in your life, thanks to Venus, the planet of beauty, pairing up with the taskmaster planet Saturn in your sixth house of wellness. Could be time to bite the bullet and just call that massage therapist your best friend has been seeing or acupuncturist your sister swears by. With everything on your plate RN, it may feel challenging, but taking the first step to carve out some you time pays off.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
If you feel like you've been struggling to be heard by your partner, your kids, your mother-in-law (!), you'll be ready to lay down the law around Wednesday, when the planet of communication Mercury pairs up with the confident sun in your fourth house of family and home life. Asserting yourself with authority and kindness tends to come naturally for you, so own that skill and do your thing. Yeah, the conversation still may be uncomfortable in the moment, but ultimately, you'll feel like a major weight has been lifted.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
Just when you're feeling like it might be OK for you and the kids to avoid a solid plan for the weekend and just go with the flow, you may get boxed into less-than-ideal plans around Saturday, when the planet of love Venus pairs up with taskmaster Saturn in your fourth house of home life. You may have to spend time with extended family or stuck working on a home improvement project. Taking short breaks to do your own thing (ask your MIL to watch the kids for an hour or two, and treat yourself to a latte and a pedi) has you feeling more balanced.
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
Around Saturday, when go-getter Mars in your fourth house of family forms a challenging angle to revolutionary Uranus, you could have sudden, bold brainstorm about how to celebrate Halloween with the kids. Maybe you're throwing a party for your kids and their cousins, or you're really caught up in those finishing touches on your twins' Dr. Seuss-inspired costumes from Pinterest. Yes, you want everything to play out perfectly, but doing your best to be present in the moment makes it even easier to make incredible, lasting memories.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
Around Sunday when the new moon is in your sign, it'll feel like your very own New Year's. You'll want to set solid goals, like starting a new business, trying for baby #2, or, you know, maybe just getting the toddler to finally spend the whole night in her own bed. Map out your plan, nail down support from your partner or whoever you feel will be the most helpful along the way, and you'll be primed for success.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
Around Saturday, when the planet of love Venus pairs up with taskmaster Saturn in your sign, your big weekend plans (a romantic mini-getaway or a friend's Halloween bash) may be foiled by a cranky baby with a cold or your sitter bailing at the last minute. Ugh! Deep breaths, mama. Do what you need to do now, keep your eye on the big picture, and you'll get your adventure fix later on.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
Your boss could send a high-stakes project your way around Saturday when Mars, the planet of action, in your 10 house of career forms a negative angle to Uranus, which rules all things sudden and unexpected. Your instinct is to put everything else on the back burner to crank it out, but this could leave you feeling totally fried and resentful. See what you can do to divide your time between getting it done and spending QT with your baby at that neighborhood pumpkin fest.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
It's possible you'll feel judged and unsupported by loved ones around Saturday, go-getter Mars in your 12 house of spirituality forms a negative angle to revolutionary Uranus, currently in your third house of communication. You could even lash out as a result. The best thing to do RN: Ask your partner or mom or BFF to take the reins on childcare for even a half hour, so you can meditate or journal. Do whatever makes you feel more centered. As a result, you'll be feeling more calm and supported soon.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Around Tuesday, the planet of creativity, Venus, in your 10 house of career forms a negative angle to Neptune, which clouds rational thought, in your sign, and this could throw you into a bit of a funk at work. You could worry that higher-ups don't understand your creative vision. Try to wake up a bit early, before the kids, and spend time meditating or stretching. This will help you be more mindful on the job and sail past this rocky phase.
