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.
The New Moon on the 8th offers a generous stretch of peace and harmony at home. It’s almost eery the way the pleases and thank yous are flowing and how nothing has broken, slipped, chipped, or exploded in a record number of days and counting.
Don’t waste these precious good times waiting for the other shoe to drop. You know it will eventually, so there’s no need to rush it along.
When the Sun enters Scorpio on the 23rd, life’s mysteries rise to the surface in the form of some unexpectedly big questions from the little ones, like, “Why are some kids allergic to peanuts?” “Do dogs go to heaven?” and “Where did the tiny plastic telescopes in the bathroom wastebasket come from and why would anyone toss such amazing treasure?”
You don’t have to have all the answers, Mom, just a little patience and a decent sense of humor.
Mercury enters Sagittarius on the 30th, and a powerful new vision for your future comes into focus. It’s an exciting idea to toss around for a few days, but ultimately, it’s more effort than you’re prepared to commit to.
Identify what it is about the vision that makes it so powerful and see if you can find a way to invoke a similar feeling in the life you’re already living, without so much upheaval.
The truth is, you like change. You practically crave it, so maybe it’s time to shake it up just enough to keep things interesting. Surprise the family one morning with pizza for breakfast or trade the car in for a less practical model with way more style.
Your mantra for the month of October is: Stability is not a dirty word.
