Heavenly Mother

Heavenly Mother

Mormon Zodiac Heavenly Mother
The ultimate Mormon housewife, but in deity form, Heavenly Mother is juggling a lot of shit, but keeping it all together. You can sense the spiritual Zen, or the prescription drugs (Utah has a high rate of antidepressant and opiate use).

Attribute Emphasis: Spirituality / Purpose

“HMs” have a deep sense of purpose in their lives and a connection to something greater than themselves. They have a special appreciation for everything that is good and beautiful, and they attract amazing people into their lives. HMs are reliable and responsible, and don’t appreciate last-minute changes of plans or half-assed chaotic ideas. HMs don’t seek for praise and are often overlooked for promotions because they refuse to beg for the spotlight.

Just because you are right most of the time, doesn’t mean you should burn bridges to every douchebag in your life. You never know when you’ll need one of them to throw under a bus for the right cause. 😊

Strengths:

HMs are purposeful, devoted, disciplined, responsible, and masters of hiding in plain sight.*

Weaknesses:

HMs can be condescending, uncompromising know-it-alls. They can also suffer from periods of deep depression because they feel ignored.

Zodiac Dates: December 21st – February 4th

This is a time of year for self-reflection, introspection, and evaluating one’s purpose. In Utah, it’s a cold and dark time of year, and the air pollution is at its worst. It can be a very depressing season, and it captures the way a Heavenly Mother must feel, eternally pumping out babies without being able to receive prayers or gratitude from any of them.

Day of the Week: None

That’s right, HMs don’t have a special lucky day of the week. Take the phrase “A mother’s work is never done” and multiply it by infinity/eternity. Depressing, but it fits. Sorry.

If This is Your Zodiac Sign

If you are an HM, you might be prone to feelings of deep melancholy, especially when much of your work goes unnoticed — but it’s because of you that we function as a society. It takes devoted, purposeful individuals like yourself to create important changes in the world. You are the person that doesn’t let the important things fall through the cracks. Just keep in mind that it’s okay not to be perfect. It’s okay to mess up over and over again, dammit! Screw the damn pie! Take care of what matters most, and be sure to put self-care at the top of your list. If you can’t take care of yourself, you can’t help anyone else much. Betch! “Treat yo self!”

Reference in Mormonism

* Except for a gospel topic essay released in 2015, Heavenly Mother isn’t really brought up in church. Members aren’t supposed to pray to her: “I regard it as inappropriate for anyone in the Church to pray to our Mother in Heaven.” (Gordon B. Hinckley, ‘Daughters of God’, October 1991 Ensign). Perhaps this is because God is a polygamist and we wouldn’t know which mother to pray to.
