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.
Venus goes retrograde in Scorpio on the 5th with an invitation to revisit last month’s lessons on patience. Heads up: This will likely present itself as a feisty toddler spinning out in a pre-nap rage or an impossibly slow checkout line at the dry cleaner’s.
It sucks, but this is actually an opportunity to show off your newfound wells of self-restraint, if only to prove to yourself that nothing so petty is worth losing your shizel.
When Mercury enters Scorpio on the 9th, you are that mom with eyes in the back of her head. Pity the fool who tries to swipe a glob of cookie dough when they think your back is turned or anyone who gets it into their silly little head that wearing the same undies three days in a row will somehow go unnoticed. You catch it all, which is quite unnerving for the rest of the gang.
Wield this power lightly.
The Sun enters Scorpio on the 23rd, and all is forgiven. It’s the season of your birthday, and never have you felt so totally yourself. This time of year always feels like coming back home to a place you know like the back of your hand.
You’re the rare individual who leans into life’s dark mysteries, which means you are completely unfazed when the kids start asking the kinds of questions that leave most parents running for the hills. You refuse to B.S. them with cutesy tales about storks delivering babies in baskets. Just know — it is possible to be completely G-rated while still keeping it real.
Your mantra for the month of October is: My mom vision sees all.
