Welcome to a new fun monthly series sharing horoscope’s for mom. A Momoscope. Find out what October has in store for you including your Halloween movie pick for after the kids go to bed.
Aquarius – January 21 – February 19
With the rush of September over, you’ll feel the need to question everything you thought were set in stone. Why do teachers have so much say in your child’s school lunch? Why can’t you find a book that keeps you enthralled for more than a few days? Is it okay to buy one bag of chocolate bars for the trick-or-treaters and another bag to just keep in my office desk? Halloween movie pick: Your independent nature calls for Shaun of the Dead’s odd ball take on zombies.
Pisces – February 20- March 20
You seem to have a sixth sense for things like knowing those parents in the school yard are talking about you. Being the topic isn’t always a bad thing since they’re more than likely commenting on how you seem to have this parenting thing so under control. Halloween movie pick: Your compassionate nature calls for a little romance from the dead in My Boyfriend’s Back.
Aries – March 21 – April 20
Taking charge of a new team project. Helping to coach the junior soccer team. Being a member of the parent council at school. Your leadership skills have come in handy this past month but that doesn’t mean you don’t have doubts. Try keeping a journal or meditation to remind yourself how amazing you are, even with little flaws. Halloween movie pick: With every dream, there is a dark side and your courageous nature will be called upon in Something Wicked This Way Comes.
Taurus – April 21 – May 21
This month brings you personal change, something you’re not a fan of. Change is inevitable. Keep yourself from utter panic by drawing on routines you’re already established. This will make new transitions a little easier. Halloween movie pick: Many would call you persistent but would you be persistent enough to spend the night in a haunted house from the classic The Ghost and Mister Chicken?
Gemini – May 22 – June 21
As your family starts to get active with school and outside activities, their reliance on you has decreased a little. This is a good step forward but it does leave you missing this involvement. Try some volunteering at the school or local library to fill this gap. Halloween movie pick: Halloween is the perfect time to call on your imaginative side in Coraline. Would you choose the “always fun” other world?
Cancer – June 22 – July 22
A new school year can also feel overwhelming to you as a parent. Take a step and volunteer to help in the classroom as a way to connect yourself to the school and breakthrough some of your shyness. Halloween movie pick: When your friends are in a jam they know they can count on dependable you, just like the city of New York when infested by ghosts. Who are you going to call this Halloween? Ghostbusters.
Leo – July 23 -August 21
It can be easy to forget that kids are going through stages of learning whether it’s tying their shoe or grappling with geometry. All parents want their kids to succeed. Try a little patience if your child doesn’t grasp a concept right away. Halloween movie pick: Your confidence would have you taking charge against witches and evil like in Stardust.
Virgo – August 22 – September 23
You’re not one to have overdue books from the library or respond to emails when they arrive but that hasn’t been the case as of late. Something is bugging you and until you deal with it you’ll have more than just a few library fines to deal with. Halloween movie pick: Your analytic nature will be challenged in Poltergeist (the original)
Libra – September 24 – October 23
The transition into fall also signals your birthday. There’s no better time to splurge on a little luxury just for you. Enjoy a massage or manicure. Maybe indulge in some candles and bath salts and lock yourself away for an afternoon. Halloween movie pick: A person who thinks bad things don’t happen to good people, the classic thriller Wait Until Dark will test your belief.
Scorpio – October 24 – November 22
Feeling a little antsy might call for a distraction to channel this unused energy. Look to something creative but start small so you don’t start to doubt your abilities. Halloween movie pick: No Halloween movie list is complete without something from Stephan King, such as the energy charged Firestarter
Sagittarius – November 23 – December 22
Your curiousity to learn new things may start to drain on your family especially if you don’t follow through. Instead, challenge yourself to try learn one new skill and still to it for the whole month. You’ll relish in the newfound knowledge that even your family will appreciate. Halloween movie pick: Craving a little fun adventure this October? Try conjuring up Hocus Pocus.
Capricorn – December 23 – January 20
You take comfort in things being right or wrong but questions your kids often bring up at the dinner table delve into a grey area. This makes you feel uncomfortable but showing this vulnerability to your family gives them permission to be vulnerable too. Halloween movie pick: Your “cool as a cucumber” nature might be tested in The Game, your Halloween movie pick.
