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, don’t freak out if things get more emotional than usual, especially when it comes to other people’s disappointments. If the hubs doesn’t get that promotion he was gunning for or your poor little dude didn’t get an invite to the popular kid’s birthday party, the best you can do now is offer a sympathetic ear.
Your middle name might rightly be Ms. Fix It, but situations like these aren’t yours to fix. Just listen and nod and give hugs as needed.
The Full Moon in Taurus on the 24th brings everything back down to earth for your clan, which is a huge relief after so much tension. Welcome this grounding energy back into your home with the scent of warm stew wafting from the slow cooker, extra blankets on the beds, and hot cocoa for everyone. It’s also time to get more hygge with the self-care. A cozy new bathrobe or hot stone facial massage would be just the ticket.
Venus retrograde enters Libra on the 31st, taking you on a trip down memory lane to a time when you were the one running around after dark, knocking on the doors of strangers with candy.
Remember that time your mom spent all weekend sewing your Halloween costume from scratch? Recalling the sweetness of your childhood reinforces your desire to create some of that magic for your own family now. Focus on the little things that make the holidays such a big deal, especially for the little ones. Indulge them the occasional pumpkin-faced treat and every cartoon special the season has to offer.
Your mantra for the month of October is: I’m all about that simple life.
