Your horoscope sign has a lot to say about the way your parenting style. Read on to find out more and share with us in the comments section below if you think this is accurate!
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
Parenting style: You are full of life and would sacrifice the world for your children. However, you know the value of 'me time' and aren't afraid of giving yourself a well-earned break. You have instilled a sense of hierarchy in your family and your children respect it. Your children may not be your best friends but they will grow up respecting you.
Your strengths: You are brilliant at teaching your children boundaries and they'll grow up with a template of appropriate behaviour to guide them back to safety.
Your weaknesses: You can be competitive and are obsessed with being the 'perfect' mother. You can also become fiercely angry; so be careful not to scare the little ones.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
Parenting style: Children fundamentally need routine, which happens to be a specialty for rock-steady Taurus. Being a creature of habit, you have no problem setting certain basic guidelines like bedtimes, mealtimes, and naps.
Your strengths: You have fantastic taste and have a strong common sense. You protect your family by teaching them to make smart use of their resources: time, money and energy.
Your weaknesses: You can be rather materialistic and can get tangled in keeping up with the Joneses, giving your kids the wrong message. You are also known for your stubborn nature, which can cause a rift with your children. Tauruses don’t shift their habits, opinions and beliefs lightly. As a parent, you’ll need to consciously work on developing greater tolerance and flexibility.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
Parenting style: You are information sponges, drawn to the most cutting-edge ideas and innovations.
Your strengths: You have a million hobbies and interests, making you quite the interesting mama. As a result, you honour your children’s desire to learn, especially through play and discovery. Their education will be of prime importance to you.
Your weaknesses: In your thirst for variety, you may unwittingly destabilise your kids. Consciously pick a few key values and stick with them—both in your word and deed.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
Parenting style: You're a natural nurturer, love being pregnant and family is everything to you. Holidays, family reunions, showers—you’re in your element, hosting them, baking, cooking, and planning.
Your strengths: Your sentimental side is the glue that holds your family together, and gives your kids the security that you will always be there for them. Early childhood development is your specialty. You are delighted by the things kids do, and you respect their feelings.
Your weaknesses: You can become overprotective of your kids that there is a thin line between caring and coddling at a certain point. Be careful, because you could end up with a spoiled diva or a clingy mama’s boy. Your emotions also change rapidly and with a child doing the same, chaos will ensue at home.
LEO (July 23-August 22)
Parenting style: You are the liveliest and most energetic mom in the zodiac, Leo. You are showy, affectionate, forever leaving lipstick marks on people or keeping the party going 24/7. You’re not just a mom, you’re the ultimate playmate.
Your strengths: Your incredible willpower and ambition can set quite an example for your kids, who feel safe under your fierce protection. Even if you’re struggling financially, you make sure your kids have every advantage.
Your weaknesses: Leo is ruled by the sun so you can be very self-centered and treat your children like show ponies.
VIRGO (August 23-September 22)
Parenting style: You’re a walking database of parenting information—the Google of motherhood—and your kids’ lives are well-planned as a result.
Your strengths: Structure is what makes children feel safest, so your ability to provide it can help your kids grow up to feel confident and empowered in the world. You also teach your children healthy eating habits and ban junk food.
Your weaknesses: You can get all too hung up on your carefully orchestrated plans, turning order into chaos. You can also be fairly catty about other parents' child rearing methods.
LIBRA (September 23-October 22)
Parenting style: You can have a magical effect on your family, giving them the sense that everything is going to be okay. You are also brilliant at remembering to put your partner first and will never cancel on date night.
Your strengths: You have class and culture. Libra is the sign of partnerships, so if you have a daughter, you’ll wear coordinated outfits, and you’ll pass on your good taste to her. As a friend and as a mom, you will teach your children good manners.
Your weaknesses: You can be inconsistent with your emotions and slightly snobby at times. You treat your children like your friends. Just because you feel like best friends with your kids, that doesn’t mean they should be your therapists and confidantes.
SCORPIO (October 23-November 21)
Parenting style: Powerful and intense, you’re not just a mom, you’re the master and commander of your family. You couldn’t care less about the rest of the world once you have your tight-knit inner circle around you.
Your strengths: Home is your sanctuary, and you’ll create a beautiful space for your family to Zen out together.
Your weaknesses: It’s no secret that you’re a control freak. You know what you want, and you’ll do whatever it takes to get it. Make sure you’re parenting from power, rather than fear. You love your kids in an all-consuming way, but you can’t isolate them in a safe little bubble.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 21)
Parenting style: The Sagittarius mother never slows down. You are forever taking risks, expanding your horizons and seeking new frontiers. As a result, your kids will have a potpourri of experiences, and might even be seasoned travelers before they are old enough to be charged for a plane ticket
Your strengths: You are the ultimate playmate parent, always dreaming up fun adventures for your family. In your opinion, children are much smarter than adults, and you’ll respect what they have to say. Your kids will grow up feeling intelligent and worthy as a result.
Your weaknesses: Motherhood can be especially challenging for your restless sign, since it requires consistency, structure and often, sitting still. While your frankness can be refreshing to a point—you don’t shelter your kids from the truth—it can also cross the line into embarrassing or downright inappropriate.
CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 20)
Parenting style: The Capricorn mom is the rock of her clan, the force that holds everything together through thick and thin. You’re a master strategist who’s always thinking ten steps ahead. As a result, your children will be set up for success in the long haul.
Your strengths: You like to carry on family conventions and pass down strong roots to your clan. You will be sure your children have a healthy respect for their elders, and understand right from wrong.
Your weaknesses: You carry the weight of the world on your shoulders and this can be a downer for your kids. You can also have an obsession with status but need to ensure that your family are happy beneath all the trappings.
AQUARIUS (January 20-February 18)
Parenting style: You are a hip mother who sets the trends won't shelter your kids. You believe that the more they’re exposed to, the better equipped they will be to handle and understand life.
Your strengths: You march to your own beat, set your own rules, and if people don’t like it, who cares? You are a live-and-let-live kind of person. This attitude can set a great example for your kids, especially in an age where bullying and self-esteem issues run rampant.
Your weaknesses: Your temper, moods, and even romantic partners can be subject to change without notice. Be sure to find the right balance between honouring your individuality and being a source of consistency in your children’s lives.
PISCES (February 19-March 2)
Parenting style: You are the ultimate empath. You naturally gravitate to children and you shower your kids with unconditional love. In your eyes, they can do no wrong, and you’re there to soothe them, spoil them and cheer on their accomplishments.
Your strengths: You’ve got the soul of an artist, and a flair for music, decorating, food, fashion and all the sensual delights. Your kids will grow up versed in many musical genres, and they’ll definitely taste the finer things the life has to offer.
Your weaknesses: Rather than communicate directly, Pisces moms can become passive-aggressive or emotionally manipulative. Guilt is the ultimate Pisces mother’s weapon, one you may need to use a lot more sparingly.
