Zodiacal Parents and Children

Disclaimer: with astrology, it is possible to decipher our behaviour or to get a glimpse of the future. This is a theory which cannot be systematically tested. On the other hand, one may wish to follow an easier path, which puts into practice the principles listed in astrology textbooks. In a way, this is precisely the type of practical exercises that we suggest in this Lifestyle column.

We recommend that you follow our advice with both a light and observing mind. Beyond entertainment, the aim is to understand how each of us behaves in various fields; thus, we can better define and fathom, by deduction, how we have developed our natal predispositions. In addition, why wouldn't we be able to guess the talent(s) which we could harness in the future, according to our astrological profile.

The following information is given for signs in their purest form. Depending on the case, it is advisable that you check your planetary dominant or the sign of your Ascendant, the position, quality and aspects of the significators of the area involved, and if applicable, the position of the planets associated with it. For instance, for family affairs, examine the 4th House and its ruler, as well the Moon; for romance, examine the 5th House and its ruler, as well as Venus, etc.

The large number of books we have read, and more particularly, the experience we have drawn from the study of thousands of charts, urge us to be cautious. However, we thought that it may be interesting to provide a few concrete indications, which will turn out to be accurate, quite often.

Aries, Aries rising, Mars dominant, or strong 1st House

Zodiacal Parent for Aries, Aries rising, Mars dominant, or strong 1st House

As soon as you became a parent, you set off the word "Action!". You are often found at the stadium, where you do not hesitate to jeer at the mistakes of the umpire, or to show your enthusiasm for your son's performances. You also encourage your daughter, and you urge her to display a conquering spirit, including (particularly) anything concerning the last bastions of men. You are stimulating, efficient, and you manage to avoid making a mountain out of a molehill. This is noticeable since breakfast, which you prepare for everybody in the twinkling of an eye. You are able to run to pick up the little one from the judo, and to take the elder one to her tennis lesson after school. In short, nothing stops you, and out of misplaced pride, you will never confess that you are tired sometimes! For your children, such a great expense of energy is contagious and often nice to experience. Your only fault: even though you adore your family, you remain self-centred. It is out of the question to sacrifice your desires. You let people know it with rudeness.

Taurus, Taurus rising, Venus dominant, or strong 2nd House

Zodiacal Parent for Taurus, Taurus rising, Venus dominant, or strong 2nd House

A priori, you make your children happy. To begin with, you are fond of tactile communication, and cuddles are plentiful with you. Next, thanks to your artistic leanings, you enjoy taking the time to awaken your children to music, to singing, to painting, in a nutshell, to anything fulfilling them. In addition, you cook like a champion of course. Once adults, your offspring will always remember your apricot tarts or your Provençal beef stew. Oh; those marvellous regional dishes that you cared to make them discover! Likewise, you enjoy taking them for long strolls in the nature, again, to share moments of serenity and link them to the earth, your element, which you respect above all. Since you are a traditionalist parent, lack of understanding may emerge when your children become teenagers. Indeed, you need time to integrate changes, which they find... irritating!

Gemini, Gemini rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 3rd House

Zodiacal Parent for Gemini, Gemini rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 3rd House

What a buddy you are! Instead of a parent, you prefer to be considered as a sort of elder sister or elder brother. Indeed, you are still feeling like an adolescent, it must be said, sometimes not too aware of your responsibilities, a bit superficial, a Jack of all trades, but lovely at the same time. However, you are perfect when it comes to discussing with your children, teaching them all sorts of things, even simple and basic ones. School seems important to you, and you inculcate them with the respect for knowledge, as well as the will to try all kinds of training, in the most various fields. Nevertheless, your biggest flaw remains your inability to become mature and responsible. Your children feel ashamed when you want to go to a discotheque with them, or when you wear a mini-skirt or sport shoes, at the age of 40 or 50! But they will have to accept it, and that's that!

Cancer, Cancer rising, the Moon dominant, or strong 4th House

Zodiacal Parent for Cancer, Cancer rising, the Moon dominant, or strong 4th House

Proust dreamt about it, and there you are, the personification of the protective parent. With you, no one is left alone, abandoned in the dark. You always feel these intense bonds, and you know that motherhood or fatherhood offers the most important moments of your life. You are sweet, tender, and caring, you know which tales are to be told, and you manage to create rituals or to perpetuate family traditions. Of course, you pay the utmost attention to the nourishing principle, in the literal sense. You spend a lot of time in the kitchen, preparing afternoon snacks, home-made jams, or light meals, so that no one is short of food. You also dream of your own childhood and of the past, when you waited for them with a slow-cook dish. Your weakness? The difficulty to cut the umbilical cord, obviously. Stop doing their laundry when they become adults!

Leo, Leo rising, the Sun dominant, or strong 5th House

Zodiacal Parent for Leo, Leo rising, the Sun dominant, or strong 5th House

Yes, of course, the whole world knows that your child is the most beautiful one, the most intelligent, the best, the new Mozart or the new Cristiano Ronaldo. This is evident, since we are talking about your mini-ego! Therefore, at school, the other parents quickly spot you: you are the person who sits in the first row for the end of school year celebration, recording the entire event with a blissful grin when your child receives a prize. Your pride may be moving, and you take the leadership whenever there is an injustice and the rights of your children must be protected. Certainly, they can rely on you in this regard. Since you are conceited, you also enjoy impressing people, and you arrive at school in a convertible, or dressed as a star. You think that parenthood does not go against social play! Therefore, yes, your inability to practice some humility, or just to be natural, or to respect the teacher's authority, may be annoying. But your children will be proud of you, in their turn, when you will become an elegant old gentleman or lady!

Virgo, Virgo rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 6th House

Zodiacal Parent for Virgo, Virgo rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 6th House

Do you have children? This can be indicated by the planning pinned on the kitchen wall, and by the numerous post-it notes resembling a timetable as detailed as that of a railway station supervisor. You are not the type of person who can be blamed for being disorganised. Your refrigerator is always reasonably filled with wholesome food. You know when your son has his football lesson, and how much time you need to fetch your daughter at her dance class. In short, you are a perfect and exemplary parent whose offspring are always neatly dressed and irreproachable. A slight problem at school? You immediately get a tutor, the time to straighten things out. Holidays on sight, and grand-parents cancelling their help? No more place at the day nursery? You have an alternative. Your flaw may be the other aspect of your qualities: you lack imagination, and you want a clearly mapped out future for your children, forgetting that they must also test their own capacities.

Libra, Libra rising, Venus dominant, or strong 7th House

Zodiacal Parent for Libra, Libra rising, Venus dominant, or strong 7th House

Always meaning well, you are a dedicated supporter of wise advice in education. Indeed, you want to be appreciated and to make your child feel proud of you, and reciprocally. Therefore, you strive to project a perfect family image: teachers look at you positively, as they know that you are kind, committed, and attentive to your children's progress. You enjoy meeting the other parents, because they represent an additional means to socialise, even though you are not aware of it. Actually, your children's birthdays are always unforgettable, because you know how to prepare a perfect programme to make everyone feel appreciated, with very high standards in terms of class and propriety. Although adolescents, your children often consider that you are the reference in the field of good taste, whether they find this irritating, or whether they want to follow you. The only reservation is your emotional vulnerability, which may sometimes interfere in your relations with your children.

Scorpio, Scorpio rising, Pluto dominant, or strong 8th House

Zodiacal Parent for Scorpio, Scorpio rising, Pluto dominant, or strong 8th House

If parents are meant to reveal the mysteries of life to their children, then, you are the ideal parent. You will teach them how to fight their fears, to surmount their complexes, and to strengthen their willpower. It is already quite a lot, and it is most likely that later on, they will remember you as an iron-handed personality. As far as tales are concerned, it is obvious that you prefer magical and mysterious epics, or revisited tragedies, instead of happy ending stories. You may also scoff at Santa Claus legend, because you make a point of telling the truth, even if it means being radical. In a word, your children quickly learn, in a vivid way, that life is not only a bed of roses! Above all, you must be careful not to pass on your anxieties and your fantasies. Adolescence may also be a difficult phase, because you insist on keeping your children under your authority, and therefore, risks of confrontation become bigger.

Sagittarius, Sagittarius rising, Jupiter dominant, or strong 9th House

Zodiacal Parent for Sagittarius, Sagittarius rising, Jupiter dominant, or strong 9th House

Thanks to your enthusiasm, you are an inspiring, stimulating, and warm parent. With your jovial temperament, you always see the positive and cheerful side of the situation: you widen your children's horizon line, showing them the world in its entire dimension, in both the literal and figurative senses. You will arouse their interests in all academic areas, encouraging their education as well as the learning of foreign languages and of higher knowledge. You will also enjoy making them discover far-off countries. Safaris, sea resorts in the tropics. You will spoil your children if you can afford it! They will appreciate your fighting spirit, your interest in nature, and the fact that you are totally unprejudiced. The downside is finally that you have so many personal centres of interest that you may not show enough thoughtfulness towards your children.

Capricorn, Capricorn rising, Saturn dominant, or strong 10th House

Zodiacal Parent for Capricorn, Capricorn rising, Saturn dominant, or strong 10th House

If there is a responsible parent on earth, it is you. You take your role very seriously, and when you decided to have a child, you set an assignment to yourself: to turn your child into a strong adult having high moral values. In short, you encourage your offspring since kindergarten. If you are well-off, you know that it is preferable not to spoil them excessively, that they must acquire the sense of responsibility and of effort. You also consider leisure from a useful angle, so that the children can either let steam off, or develop as best as possible all the talents, whether in art, science, literature, or sport, you have detected in them. Only insincere people could blame you for having badly raised them, since they are always most courteous and respectful of authority. Nonetheless, be careful, for they may become rebellious, in reaction to your severity. Cheer up, once in a while!

Aquarius, Aquarius rising, Uranus dominant, or strong 11th House

Zodiacal Parent for Aquarius, Aquarius rising, Uranus dominant, or strong 11th House

Since the cradle, you did not hesitate to use state-of-the-art technology for your newborn child, especially various gadgets such as video baby monitors or computer-aided devices. But even without these modern tools, you have a propensity to give them a progressive education. You absolutely refuse to turn them into performing dogs, you prefer to allow them to express their personality, and you take care of their equilibrium. Their socialisation phase seems of crucial importance to you, and you strive to expose them to the most diverse people and settings. For the rest, you are a stickler neither for punctuality, nor for meals. If all goes well, you will develop a high level of exchanges and communication with this person who resembles you and is someone else at the same time. You will respect his opinion and his fantasies. You will be lenient when he will become a teenager. In a word, an easy-going parent, except that you may be more (too much?) intellectual than affectionate and tender.

Pisces, Pisces rising, Neptune dominant, or strong 12th House

Zodiacal Parent for Pisces, Pisces rising, Neptune dominant, or strong 12th House

And here comes the bohemian parent par excellence! Horrified by the idea of squeezing your children into the mould of conformity, you let them grow like plants, which means as they like. You are also tactile, tender, and full of empathy: sometimes more comfortable with gesture than with words, you love the phase of sharing between yourself and your baby. Later on, you will be touched by the first day at school, you will cherish the rice necklaces which they make for Christmas, and you will shed a tear at the end of school year celebration. Besides, you are delighted to participate in artistic events: to find a costume, to learn poetry, or even to attend exhibitions. But sometimes you mix up your schedules, and you miss an enrolment deadline. Fortunately, you are able to sort things out by showing solidarity towards the other parents, or by being nice with the teachers! As a result, they readily forgive your absent-mindedness and your fancies.
