Your Zodiac Sign Can Tell You What Kind Of Parent You Are


If you're into astrology, you're familiar with how accurate your sign can be. Whether it's your Celtic or Chinese Zodiac, they can all give you valuable insight to several aspects of your life.

This includes how your unique character traits will dictate what kind of parent you'd be, for better or for worse.

Curious to see what kind of caretaker you are or will be in the future? Take a look at all of the good, bad, and ugly attributes you embody.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

As an Aries, you're a natural born leader who allows your children to pursue their interests, regardless of what they may be. You teach your offspring how to express themselves while also staying humble at the same time.

You also try to instill in your kids the value of standing up for yourself and what you believe in, even when you're fighting against a bigger opposition.

However, since you're always on the go, you may become frazzled with maintaining everyone's tight schedule, and have a tendency to lose your temper when your child misbehaves.

Luckily you don't stay mad for long, and are able to move on as soon as you calm down from an argument.

"Aries themselves are somewhat childlike in nature, and they either shun the responsibility or they may be a parent who exposes the child to many new opportunities," astrologer Linda Furiate explained.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

If you're a Taurus, you already know you have incredible patience that you extend to your children, regardless of how much of a troublemaker they are.

You're down to earth, you are fiercely loyal to your kids and will make sure they're always showered with affection, which often leads them to believe you're more of a friend than a parent.

"A Taurus parent will teach the child the value of self-worth and doing the right thing," Furiate said.

But, Tauruses are also known to be pushovers who let their children get away with more than other caretakers, and have to be mindful for not overindulging their every whim.

Unfortunately, you have a stubborn nature and have a trouble getting over fights, especially if they turn personal.

Gemini (May 21 - June 21)

While Geminis are often seen as carefree, impulsive, and inquisitive individuals, making sure their children have a good education is their highest priority.

You make sure your kids have great communication skills and are able to comfortably socialize with those around them.

"The parent may encourage the child to spend time with their cousins, close relatives and schoolmates to learn and grow," Furiate said.

However, even though you're a great listener and always encourage your children to better themselves, your intellectual analysis of a situation may not sound like it comes from the heart.

"A weakness may be that the parent talks at the child and not to the child," Furiate added.

Cancer (June 22 - July 22)

For a Cancer, family is one of the most important things in life. You are extremely nurturing to your children, and go out of your way to make sure they feel loved and appreciated.

You love following traditions, especially if it involves food and the dinner table. You work hard to make sure your kids are well taken care of, but also tend to act overprotective, even when it isn't particularly necessary.

"Often, a Cancer parent will smother a child with their love," Furiate explained, adding that this trait could cause them to rebel.

It would be beneficial if you allow your offspring enough freedom to live their own lives so they don't feel suffocated. Your children would be more likely to come to you with a problem, because they'll know that even though you're not a helicopter parent, you'll always make them your top priority.

Leo (July 23 - August 22)

As a Leo, you're probably the most energetic parent out there. With your happy-go-lucky attitude and playful demeanor, your children will never want to spend a moment without you.

"A Leo parent has the potential to be playful and fun," Furiate shared. "Leos love the energy of a child and may wish for and have more than the average number of children."

However, while you're always bragging about your children's accomplishments, you also have the tendency to be self-absorbed and arrogant. There are times when you put your own needs above theirs, and your kids will feel that.

But, despite your faults, your children will always adore you for your fierce love and devotion.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

As any Virgo will know, they love organization and tackle any task with logical thinking.

You're a strict parent and make sure your children always stick to a routine, but do your best to be in touch with their emotions. Even though you have high expectations for your kids, they know you'll always love them no matter what.

You want to make sure your children have the best lives possible, but because of your micromanaging habits, they are more likely to lash out on you. You might take this to heart due to your sensitive nature, but they'll eventually realize it's only because you care.

Libra (September 23 - October 22)

If you're a Libra parent, your children definitely lucked out. Due to your balanced and peaceful nature, your offspring knows they never have to walk on eggshells around you.

You love spoiling your kids and make sure they know how to express themselves. You're also a fantastic co-parent and are able to be the mediator involving any family drama.

"A Libra would prefer to use kind words to talk to the child rather than resort to anger or authority," Furiate explained.

However, because you have a laid back attitude, you have to make sure they don't take advantage of your good-natured attitude. While you might not be the best at handing out punishments, it isn't wise to delegate that task to your partner, since your children need to know you're their parent first, then their friend.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

While not as strict as a Virgo, Scorpio parents know when to dish out tough love. After your kids are done school, you like to register them in plenty of extracurricular activities in an effort to make sure they lead a balanced life.

You're also intuitive and know when something is wrong with your children even before they tell you. This allows you to come up with the best advice for when they eventually share what's occupying their mind.

You're big on loyalty, honesty, and trust, so if your children don't share the same qualities, you'll have a very fragile relationship with them until they smarten up.

But, regardless of how your children act, you'll never leave their corner because family will always be the most important thing to you.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius parents are known to be adventurous and have a love for travel. You want your children to see as much of the world as possible and give them your thirst of knowledge.

You want your kids to enjoy their childhood, but you also have impulsive tendencies that may lead them feeling like they lack stability.

"The child may often feel they have no permanent grounding," Furiate explained. "Thankfully, the child of a Sag parent will benefit from the numerous opportunities to expand their awareness of the richness and wonder of the world around them."

But despite your faults, you're still a fantastic role model - as long as you cut out the curse words!

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

While Capricorns can often be seen as stern parents, your children will know you'll always be on their side. They know that as someone who holds traditional values close to your heart, you're a hardworking person and who will always stays true to your word.

But, that doesn't mean your attitude won't stress your kids out, which can cause a period of uneasiness in your parent-child relationships.

"A Capricorn parent may run a tight ship, treating their offspring like soldiers rather than children. A highly structured and disciplined lifestyle may be encouraged or enforced," Furiate said.

"This strong need for control and discipline by the Capricorn parent may intimidate a child. This may induce a fear within the child to not want to grow up and take responsibility on their own," she added.

Remember that at the end of the day, your kids are just kids, and deserve to be treated every once in a while.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

As an Aquarius, you're an independent person who likes to keep an open-mind when it comes to your children.

While you are known to encourage your offspring to express themselves, you rarely follow your own advice, and can seem closed off to your children. This is especially the case if your kiddo experiences a meltdown or has a tantrum in front of you.

"An Aquarian parent may often be less forthcoming with their feelings, even sharing their love with their child," Furiate said.

But that doesn't mean they don't know you love them. They say actions speak louder than words and that rings true to you Aquarius, because while you might not talk about your emotions, you make the time to spend quality time with your children and include them in all your wild stories.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

As a Pisces, you're exceptionally empathetic to your children and their plight, which makes you the perfect confidant, regardless of the situation.

You love arts and culture and want your children to be able to express their creativity in any and all of their endeavors.

But, because of your sensitive nature, you have a habit of blowing things out of portion, and will attempt to barge in on a situation your child should be handling on their own.

Even though you're known for your loyalty, you're also a lenient parent, which may become your downfall.

If you don't know when to be strict, your children will lack structure and potentially resent you for not preparing them for the future. You may be prone to disorganization, but if you keep up a steady routine, you'll be good to go.
