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 Mercury enters Scorpio on the 9th, people get some pretty intense ideas and may even seem a bit paranoid — like when the neighbor drops in with her theory on how we’re all being spied on through our phones or your kid comes home in tears, convinced the teacher hates her guts.
Don’t let someone else’s insecurities suck you into their pain. Your neighbor has unfortunately gotten herself hooked on the 24/7 news cycle of doom, while your poor, sweet kid has decided that even the gentlest constructive criticism is proof that she sucks. Lies. It’s all lies. The message to take from this now is that fear is a liar.
The New Moon in Libra on the 8th presents a win-win situation in disguise. If your boo stands convinced that you’ve lost all interest romantically, pull him toward you tight and whisper sweet nothings in his ear about how what really gets you going is a man who knows his way around a pile of laundry and dirty sink. You’ll be amazed at how quickly he gets things sparkling like brand new. And, as you will come to find out, a clean house that you did not have to get that way yourself can be one heck of an aphrodisiac. Who knew?
When Mercury enters Sagittarius on the 30th, you may find yourself reevaluating the language you use at home. Nicknaming the kid’s room “The Sty” seems to have become a self-fulfilling prophecy, and starting every argument with “you never” or “you always” shuts the conversation down completely. Try flipping the script and weaving more positive affirmations into the conversation like, “Yay! It’s fun to share our toys!”
Your mantra for the month of October is: My word is my wand.More On
