Taking Care of Yourself This Mother's Day

Taking Care of Yourself This Mother's Day
As a mother, you are responsible for taking care of everyone else all the days of the year ... except one. One 24-hour period is devoted exclusively to Mom: Mother's Day!

This year, take care of yourself. Hire a babysitter, call on the grandparents, or ask your kids' father to pull some extra Daddy duty. Once you've done that, follow the Sun sign-specific suggestions below for making your very own day the most memorable one yet -- because you deserve it!

Aries
This year on Mother's Day, do something outside your comfort zone. In fact, do something that scares you! Have you wanted to try skydiving, but couldn't get up the nerve? Or perhaps you're a bit hesitant to take a cooking class from that master chef? If it gives you pause, then go for it. Feel the fear and jump in feet first.

Taurus
Two words for you: spa day. You are a sign that knows how to enjoy the luxury offered by pampering your body. Treat yourself to a massage or a facial -- or if you can afford it, immerse yourself in a full day of heaven.

Gemini
For you, there's nothing better than playing hooky and simply going to the movies. Maybe even consider a double feature. Don't forget the popcorn, soda and candy. It's all a way to find the magic in you that is eternally youthful.

Cancer
It's tough for you to drag yourself away from your little ones, so you deserve this day off more than any other sign. A nice way to treat yourself is to make a reservation for you and a loved one at your favorite restaurant. Plan a picnic early in the day -- catered by someone else, naturally -- before you hit up chez-whatever for dinner.

Leo
As a Lion, you love to play; you also appreciate the arts more than any other sign. So this year, Mother's Day is a great day to go enjoy live music or a dance performance. If it's fun and games you prefer, call up some friends and go play golf, volleyball, cards ... whatever suits your fancy.

Virgo
You are the sign that finds it hardest to let go and just relax. There's always something to be done ... but not on Mother's Day! This year on your special day, your task is to find a way to not work. Nap, read, shop –- do whatever comes naturally, as long as you take a day off from keeping the world organized.

Libra
Gather your girlfriends and hit the shops! Give yourself an allowance and don't buy anything for anyone but yourself. Mother's Day is your day, and the girlier it is, the better!

Scorpio
This year on Mother's Day, make sure you focus exclusively on yourself. While you like to analyze everyone around you, you're actually soothed when you allow someone else inside your personal borders. Ask a friend out to coffee and talk about the hopes and dreams that make you tick.

Sagittarius
Sagittarius women are emotionally stimulated by other cultures, so go to a museum this Mother's Day and soak it all in. If museums aren't your thing, simply take a nice day trip. Whatever you do, get outside your usual surroundings!

Capricorn
Your life is an endless routine of taking care of others. But this year on Mother's Day, the routine is all about you! You can still accomplish something and focus on yourself: Get a pedicure, buy only the foods that you like, or bring home those throw pillows you know your husband will never approve of!

Aquarius
It's rare when Aquarius women don't have some kind of quirky hobby or unique interest. This Mother's Day, devote yourself to anything that makes your heart sing.

Pisces
If you live near a body of water, make it a point to take some time to rejuvenate by a lake, creek or ocean. If that's not an option, take a yoga class or meditate. Nothing soothes the soul of a Pisces like the sound of silence.
