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.
Your ruling planet Venus goes retrograde in Scorpio on the 5th with an invitation to look past words to what’s really being said. In kid world, “You’re a stupid dummy head” is obviously code for “You hurt my feelings.”
You also start to see why people do the annoying things they do. Your mother-in-law’s habit of popping in when least expected might just be her way of saying that she wants to be included more in the everyday stuff of life. Why not invite her over for Sunday night dinner this week?
The New Moon in your sign on the 8th might find you enjoying a friendly debate with your man over dinner, which, truth be told, is one of your all-time favorite pastimes. That’s how you get some of your best ideas! Plus, that little bit of extra tension can be sexy. Just make sure he feels the same way. Otherwise, your enthusiasm for becoming a no waste fam by next year could be misconstrued as an outright attack on his beloved garage.
Venus retrograde makes her way back into Libra on the 31st, ending October with a treat! Remember that mom you bonded with over the hot lifeguard at the pool last summer? She might unexpectedly reach out to set up a playdate for the kids, and you’re always up for making new friends.
If you’re currently unattached, you may end up bumping into that cute, single dad you met at the park back in August. Guess what? He not only remembers you, this time he’s got the nerve to ask for your number!
Your mantra for the month of October is: Love it or hate it, I’m living my truth.
