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.
When Venus goes retrograde in Scorpio on the 5th, the people you most adore in the world want you to know that the feeling is mutual.
This could look like your man showing up with takeout from your favorite café on a night when you really need a break from the kitchen, the kid drawing an extremely flattering portrait of you to hang on the fridge, or your dad swinging by to clean out the rain gutters before the season’s next storm. It’s good to be loved.
The Sun enters Scorpio on the 23rd, and you may start to detect a ripple of discontent just below the surface of your family’s most ordinary interactions. Someone’s pushing their dinner around on their plate with more than a little attitude, and a perfectly innocent “How are you?” is met with a chilly “Fine.” Something is clearly not fine, but it’s going to take some digging to find out what that is.
It could just be a passing mood that has nothing to do with you, or it could involve that joke you made last week about how your sister’s new dip-dyed do looks like a dip-dyed don’t. She might be holding out for an apology, so just go ahead and do it. It’s virtually painless.
The Full Moon in Taurus on the 24th marks the perfect time to claim a little mid-week break for yourself and to really do it up with some sweet after-hours pampering. Think chocolate, a cup of tea, and a solid hour spent binge-watching beauty tutorials while lying in bed in a sheet mask and your softest PJs.
Your mantra for the month of October is: I love and am loved beyond measure.
