A Libra mom is a "sugar, spice and everything nice" mother. She doesn't sweat the small stuff and knows how to relax and have fun with her children. How easy or difficult a child will have with her laissez-faire style of mothering and how she might need to modify it to facilitate a child's developing sense of "self" can partially be seen in how her sun sign compares to the sun sign of her child.
Common Traits of Libra Moms
A Libra mom is a freestyle mom whose greatest desires as a mom are that her children are happy, have all the best experiences, and are exposed to all the beauty life can offer. A Liba Mom:
- Encourages her kids to make decisions and think for themselves
- Wants her children to have good manners and behave nicely
- Is honest and straightforward and expects the same for her children
- Teaches her kids to fair with others and to negotiate or walk away instead of fighting
- Makes family time a relaxed and happy time
- Never feels guilty about taking time for herself or making time for her friends
- For good or for bad, often treats parenting with an air of levity
Her most significant challenges as a mom are that she can be inconsistent and hates to say "no" to her kids when they want things.
An Aries child is physically active and scrappy kid who's likely to be a challenge for his "be nice and behave" Libra mom. An Aries kid never walks away or backs down from anything. He's an independent thinker, but he seldom thinks before he acts or speaks. A conciliatory Libra mom loves that he thinks for himself but wants him to learn from his mistakes. She's a good-natured mom who will sit her Aries child down, explain to him that his actions and words have consequences, and then encourage him to be more thoughtful and more considerate of others.
A Taurus child is a laid-back, loving, and cuddly child who has a self-indulgent streak and thrives on consistency. Like her Libra mom, she's good-natured and friendly. A Taurus child is an "I want" child who loves to accumulate stuff, and her "I want to make you happy" and "hate to say no" mom can be overly extravagant with her and spoil her by giving her everything she wants. Also important for a Libra mom to remember is that her Taurus child needs a mom she can depend on, so mom will need to work on never making a promise she can't keep and being decisive and consistent.
A Libra mom is a freestyle mother who understands her independent, mischievousness Gemini child and is thrilled that he's such an active, friendly, funny, bright, and expressive child. A Libra mom enjoys laughing and talking to her clever Gemini child, but she's also adamant about honesty. When she asks him about something, she wants a straight answer which is hard to get from her Gemini child, who can create the perfect blend of imagination, half-truths, and supporting logic. A Libra mom's instinct will be to laugh at his cleverness and nothing more. However, it's best if she lets him know she's not convinced and encourage him to explain what actually happened.
A Libra mom is friendly and gregarious, and she loves to be out and about meeting new people and socializing with friends. On the other hand, a Cancer child is not comfortable in crowds, prefers the familiarity of home, and is shy of strangers. She needs to be eased into social situations and given time to become more confident in unfamiliar company and surrounding. Additionally, a Cancer child requires a lot of loving and nurturing attention from a mom who is not the most nurturing of mothers. A Libra mom will have to anticipate, adjust, and make a few sacrifices for her emotionally sensitive Cancer child.
An enthusiastic, highly creative, chatty, and self-sufficient Leo child and an easy, breezy, creative, and talkative Libra mom are very compatible. Like his mom, a Leo child is happy, cheerful, and always up for fun and laughter. However, he can be bossy and is naturally wired to believe the world revolves around him. A Libra mom is never harsh, will allow him some personal authority, and is always quick with praise. Plus, she's naturally wired to be cooperative and fair-minded and can teach him by example to be fair with others and to negotiate instead of demanding.
A Virgo child is a practical, reserved, self-contained, modest, self-critical perfectionist. She's not as relaxed or as people-friendly as her Libra mom. She's a picky child who tends to worry and needs orderly routines. This is likely to be difficult for Libra mom because order and routine mean less to her than friendliness and positive feeling. However, a Libra mom can be a gentle, guiding force in a Virgo child's life. She can teach her to relax and to see the beauty that surrounds her and help her understand she's perfect as she is.
Almost everything a Libra child needs is exemplified in his Libra mom. Like, mom, he has an outgoing, optimistic, people-pleasing nature. In order to please mom, his instinct is to agree with her and not speak his mind or let his wants be known, and here's where this problem lies for a Libra mom. It's easy for a Libra mom to assume everything she wants or asks is okay with her child, but mom needs to teach him to be more assertive in speaking up about what he wants or how he feels. She can do this by simply being her straightforward self. She can make it a point to always ask him what he wants or how he feels about any situation.
A Scorpio child is strong-willed, passionate, incredibly emotional, and brooding child. She's a loner who's naturally suspicious and keeps things to herself. She can also behave in ways and have interests that make her Libra mom uncomfortable. Though a Libra mom may have a difficult understanding her Scorpio child's interests and her solemn nature, mom should try to understand and accept that her child enjoys getting under people's skin by pushing boundaries and buttons just to see how they'll react. She should also realize she's the perfect mom to provide her child with some fun and light relief from all her emotional intensity.
A Sagittarius child is as carefree and as people friendly as his Libra mom, and his adventurous nature will add some spice to his Libra mom's life. Being a freestyle mom, a Sagittarian child will have few restrictions and will be able to explore all of his interests, make mistakes, and learn. However, a Sagittarian child is impulsive by nature and never stops to think before jumping in with both feet. A Libra Mom, by contrast, weighs and analyzes every decision. The best thing a Libra mom can do for this child to do is slow him and encourage him to look before he leaps.
A Capricorn child is not a light and carefree child. They are serious, responsible, and dependable kids who can take care of themselves from a very early age. A Libra mom wants her children to be happy and won't have much trouble letting her be who she is. Plus, her Capricorn child's self-sufficient nature is fantastic for a Libra mom because it gives her plenty of time for having fun and socializing with friends. Still, a Libra mom should make sure she spends some time relaxing and having some fun with this often stoic child.
A Libra mom instinctively avoids rocking the boat, and that's what an Aquarius child does best. Many of his choices, behaviors, and ideas are fresh and original. Some might even offend his Libra mom's delicate sensibilities; if that should happen mom should remember her Aquarius child was born to push beyond conventional thoughts and modes of living. However more often than not, mom will be impressed with his inventive, experimental, and independent mind and want to hear every unusual or unique thought he has.
A Pisces child is one of the sweetest of kids. She's an adaptable, trusting, shy, emotionally sensitive, and undemanding child who is particularly empathetic to her mom. A Libra mom complements her child's gentle, sweet nature, and mom's happy, optimistic and friendly personality, will be both an inspiration and protection from harshness and negativity. A Pisces child tends to drift and can be easily swayed by her playmates. So, as difficult as in might be for an easy, breezy Libra mom, a Pisces child needs direction and boundaries. Mom needs to set some clear "family rules," make sure her Pisces child knows them, and then be gentle but firm and consistent in enforcing them.
If a parent knows her own astrological makeup and understands her children's, she can honor the differences, stay true to herself, and also facilitate their child's confidence in who they are. Mother and child sun sign comparison is only a small and incomplete beginning. Parent and child astrological compatibility is certainly more complicated. Of course, sun sign comparison is a good start, but in some cases, they can be misleading. Individual parent and children are much more than their astrological sun sign. For for a complete analysis, it's best to contact an astrologer who specializes in family dynamics.
