A Silly Parent Activist Horoscope

For when you're unmoored and need a goofy guidepost to break out of inertia.

Hi Friends!

Let’s kick off spring with a new experiment in our Collaborator Laboratory!

Over in the Collab Lab, our most popular request was for a seasonal Year of the Rabbit zodiac horoscope for unmoored parent activists wrestling decision fatigue. So here you go – a new spring horoscope to guide you through the season.

Click through and let me know in the comments – does your future sound eerily spot-on or like a middle-aged mom-bot spent a day on ridiculous nonsense?

What really would help you navigate the rest of 2023?

Even more tools to reduce your workload this month:

>> De-Motivational Wallpapers for Busybodies

As we wrap up our Winter CollabLab on Picking Our Battles. we share  some goofy wallpapers to remind us to just… not sometimes.

>> April Family Action Toolkit

From sibling rivalry to Autism Bewareness, there’s always something new to dig deeper into with our kiddos.

>> Hop* into the latest discussion in the LBT chat group

No need to follow the full conversation – just bounce in and say hi!

*This is a Year of the Rabbit AND an Easter joke, which isn’t very funny, but the thing I like most about April are the the rabbit puns, so just let me have this.

>> Our Activist Caregiver Summer Accelerator starts July 10th

Join the wait list to get first dibs when enrollment opens this May. Try not to miss out because I can confidently say that if it’s anything like last year – this summer’s collective is gonna be fucking amazing.

>> Kick off Spring with a good habit

Earn a Certificate of Badassery and impress your friends and enemies!

The next Accountabili-Buddies Challenge starts April 1, and it’s totally cool if you join in a little late, because our standards are so comically low.

Coming up next:

I’ll be back next week with a new prompt to continue our accountability group discussion on Dismantling Supremacy!

With you,

– Ashia
