Sometimes, we just need a little guidance from the stars to help us through this crazy thing called parenthood. That’s why we started Babble Horoscopes, your monthly go-to for how astrology is affecting your #momlife. For all of the October 2018 horoscopes, click here.
With the New Moon in Libra on the 8th, your natural impulsivity is tempered with a little more consideration for other people’s feelings.
Yes, it’s frustrating when your mom agrees to watch the kiddo and then backs out at the last minute because she has a headache. Old You might find that excuse suspect, but New Mom You is starting to come around to the fact that headaches and kids just don’t mix. Spare her the guilt trip, reschedule your plans, and she’ll bounce back tomorrow.
The Sun enters Scorpio on the 23rd to find you all gung-ho about your latest project, but this time your enthusiasm is unique in that you’re driven by deeper concerns.
Yes, winning Best Couples Costume at the neighborhood Spooktacular would be an awesome boost to the ego, but it’s really more about the bonding experience that goes on behind the scenes. You and your SO will enjoy getting all DIY with the silly hair pieces and stick-on tattoos.
Plus — what’s hotter than your man dressed in full Dothraki regalia, calling you “Moon Of My Life?” Probably nothing.
Venus retrograde enters Libra on the 31st, giving you a short but sweet break from the crazy deep excavations of Scorpio. Take this time to reconnect with the kids over simple things like hot cocoa with floating marshmallows or hanging paper pumpkins from the ceiling.
Little moments like these add up over time to create the sweetest childhoods. Bust out the scrapbook supplies and get the whole family cutting and pasting and bedazzling your happiest memories together.
Your mantra for the month of October is: A crafty mom is a happy mom.More On
