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 August 2018 horoscopes, click here.
Uranus, your ruling planet, goes retrograde on the 7th, which means August is a time for rethinking what you think you know. Do we really ever know anything for sure?
You like to blow people’s minds with your knack for bucking trends or just by sharing your unique perspective. It’s your cosmic duty to shake things up. However, this retrograde marks your turn to be on the receiving end of someone else’s ideas. It may be contrary to your rebellious nature, but you will learn a lot by not going against the grain. Cooperation at this time will help you grasp the bigger picture.
Aggressive Mars leaves your sign on Sunday the 12th, but he will be back in September. So consider this a much-needed reprieve from the backseat squabbles of late.

You’ve already got the message, and it’ll remain floating around on the periphery of your mind. Right now, you just need to unwind before it can really sink in. Call in a sitter for the weekend and get thee to a masseuse!
Mercury goes direct in big-hearted Leo on the 18th, lending you the perfect opportunity to smooth things out with your spouse before Mars returns next month. Yes, he watched the season finale without you, but he didn’t enjoy it, okay?
The Full Moon in Pisces on the 26th may stir up deep emotions, which is another opportunity to make amends, especially if tensions have been running high with the little ones. Lead with love and let the magic of the moon do the rest.
Your mantra for the month of August is: I like to play nice. It’s not all that serious.More On
