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 September 2018 horoscopes, click here.
Mercury, your ruler, enters Virgo on the 5th and suddenly you’re the go-to mom for projects. You’re cutting felt into tiny outfits for Barbie, gluing sequins onto jars for the neighborhood craft circle, and (even more impressively) assembling a box of mysterious Ikea parts into something that actually resembles shelves. What you realize now is that if you let the process be your guide, you can figure out how to do just about anything.
Mercury enters Libra on the 21st, ushering in weeks of diplomacy. You can now successfully negotiate joint custody of the remote control, delegate a reasonable distribution of the most unsavory tasks (Hello, stinky litter box!), and get even the slipperiest child into the bath with little resistance.
It’s all in the way you frame it. That sing songy voice you put on when you’re in a super good mood really works this way, like, “I wonder how many toys you can get off the floor before I finish making this sandwich?”
The Sun enters Libra on the 22nd and your internal sense of justice is restored. That long-awaited refund finally shows up in the mail, the coach apologizes for benching your kid for something that was so not her fault, and you randomly bump into your old high school boyfriend on a really good hair day. Oprah called it when she said “success is the best revenge.” And boy is it sweet!
Your mantra for the month of September: Messy bun, get it done.More On
