Even the most attentive and caring mother can have difficulty knowing what her child needs to become a self-confident adult. However, even a simple understanding of both her and her child's astrological sun signs can help mom tailor her style of mothering to fit her child's developing sense of self.
An Aries mom is a high-energy mom who will push her children to be first and best at whatever they do. She's not one to coddle her children and can sometimes be a little too aggressive, but she'll also be her kids' protector, friend, coach, and cheerleader. Leo, Aries, and Sagittarius kids are the most compatible with an Aries mom. With the rest of the zodiac children, she most likely needs to reign herself in a bit.
A Taurus mom is a quiet, laid-back, and placid mother, who is loving, protective, patient, stable, and reasonable, but not a pushover. This is a mom who intends to raise well-behaved and responsible children. Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn children are the most comfortable with a Taurus mother, but she'll have to tailor her natural mothering traits a bit to be more compatible with the rest of the zodiac kids.
A Gemini mom is a fun, happy, and mentally stimulating mother who does things in the spur of the moment and has an easy-breezy approach to mothering. Gemini, Liba, and Aquarius kids are the most compatible with a Gemini mom, but she'll have to sacrifice some of her freedom, be more reliable, and pay attention to what the other zodiac children need.
A Cancer mom was born to be a mother. She's sensitive to her children's needs, is super protective of them, and provides them with a feeling of security. She's a mother who needs to be needed by her children and would rather they not grow up. Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces kids are the most compatible with a Cancer mom. However, she'll need to let go somewhat on her caregiving with the other zodiac kids.
A Leo mom is a playful, energetic, dramatic, and affectionate mother who is demanding and knows how to lay down the law with her children. She also expects a lot from her kids, but she takes great pride in everything they accomplish. Leo, Sagittarius, or Aries children are the most compatible with a Leo mom, but meeting the needs of the remaining zodiac children will take a bit of adjustment on the part of a Leo mom.
A Virgo mom is a cautious, reserved, vigilant, and at times, an anxiety-ridden mom who has a penchant for worrying about her children's health as well as their happiness. Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn children are the most compatible with a Virgo mom's cautious and reserved style of mothering. For the other zodiac kids, she'll need to modify her mother traits in such a way that she can bring out her child's positive sun sign potential.
A Libra mom is an outgoing, optimistic, and good-natured mother who is seldom harsh with her kids and gives them some personal authority. Her most significant challenge as a mom is that she hates to say "no" to her kids. Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius are the most compatible with a Libra mom's mothering traits. As for the rest of the zodiac children, a Libra mom will have to stretch herself in order to validate their growing sense of self.
A Scorpio mom is a protective mother who has a helicopter mothering style and wants to be involved in every aspect of her children's lives. A Scorpio mom can easily become overly controlling and too involved in her children's lives. Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces children are the most compatible with a Scorpio mom's natural style of mothering. But for the remainder of the zodiac kids, she'll need to take care to not be quite so hovering.
A Sagittarius mom has a lenient mothering style. She believes in experiential learning and is not one to hinder the freedom of her children. While a Sagittarius mom's spontaneous nature means there will be a lot of educational fun, there is likely to be little structure in her kids' lives. Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius are the most compatible with a Sagittarian mother. However, mom might need to temper her restless exuberant nature for each of the other zodiac children.
A Capricorn mom is a practical, down-to-earth, dutiful, and serious-minded mother who provides her children with a well-ordered, stable home life. She's also a mother who's better at managing her kids than nurturing them. Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn are comfortable with a Capricorn mother. However, for the rest of the zodiac children, a Capricorn mom will have to make a special effort to validate their developing sense of self.
An Aquarius mom is a non-directive and open-minded mother who often has an alternative mothering style, gives her kids plenty of freedom, and allows them to push the boundaries of conventional thinking. Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius kids are comfortable with all of this, but the rest of the Zodiac kids need something a little different to feed their developing self-confidence.
A Pisces mom is an adaptable, intuitive mom who's in tune with her kids, believes they can do no wrong, and tends to avoid reality. Pisces, Cancer, and Scorpio kids are the most compatible with a Pisces mom. However, a Pisces mom is going to need to make a very special effort to adopt a less free-flowing mothering style in order to meet the developmental needs of the rest of the zodiac children.
The Astrological Sun
The Sun in a child's horoscope defines who a child is becoming. During toddlerhood as a child becomes ever more self-aware, their sun begins to shine and grow increasingly brighter. However, sun sign compatibility alone can often be misleading. Mother and child compatibility is as complicated as every mother and child relationship. So, while sun sign comparisons can be fun and a mother can get some insight, to understand all the dynamics involved in mothering their child in a way that will build their self-confidence, it's best if mom contacts an astrologer who specializes in family dynamics.
