Astrologer, Pia Lehmann, from Scoulscapesoz, shares how your star sign can impact your parenting style.
Here’s what she revealed…
What your star sign says about your parenting
Whether you believe in horoscopes or not, the fact is, our personalities have a huge impact on our approach to parenting – and the more we understand about ourselves, the more self-aware we are as mums and dads.
Find out what your star sign says about you below…
Aries – The soccer parent
“From hyperactivity, anything to do with sport, to being on the go at all times, if their kids are also this way inclined, then it’ll be wonderful,” says Pia.
“But if you’ve got a child who prefers reading, or is a bit of a couch potato, that can make the Aries parent very domineering and insensitive to their emotional needs.”
Taurus – The ‘taxi’ parent
“They’re always emotionally there, they’re loyal and dependable and you can rely on them to not let you down,” Pia says.

“They may not be quick to adapt, be it with technology, or new trends. They like tradition,” explains Pia.
Gemini – The extracurricular parent
You never know what you’re going to get with a Gemini parent, says Pia, who describes them as having “a lot of faces”.
“If you have a Gemini parent, you have four parents as a result,” she jokes, adding that they’re always switching up their plans and like their kids to be involved in lots of varied activities.
“Geminis love to talk and while they’re action-orientated, they’re intellectually driven too. They like change and adapt well to it. They tend to encourage their kids to read, learn and nurture their brains.”
Cancer – The natural parent
Cancers are natural born parents says Pia.
“They provide a very nurturing, warm and comfortable home life and it’s something that’s just innate in them,” she states.
“There’s a warmth in their parental attitude, however, the danger is that they could over-protect their kids, and over-shelter them,” says Pia.
Leo – The ‘fun mum’
Leo’s have to be careful they don’t overshadow their kids, warns Pia.
“They’re very theatrical, they’re fun to be around, but they just need to be careful not to play too large a role, otherwise the kids could develop an inferiority complex and think they will never meet their parent’s expectations.
“Leos are also very generous with gifts and love to spoil and brag about their kids, which could also come as a cost.”
Virgo – The perfectionist parent
“Virgos don’t like messes and this can turn them into naggers,” says Pia. “They can also come across as ‘too critical’.”
Libra – The peacekeeper parent
Librans aren’t going to be much use adjudicating a sibling-screaming match – “they would think fights and arguments are unnecessary” – but you can bet they’ll never show favouritism or bias.
“Imagine if there was a high tea for kids, it would be a Libran who would book that,” says Pia.
Scorpio – The new-age parent
“I hope the kid is into mythology and philosophy, because Scorpios certainly are,” jokes Pia.
“Scorpio parents might teach their kids about crystals, alternative health, astrology and other unorthodox ways of thinking, however their downfall is their intensity.”
Don’t expect a Scorpio parent to ever hold back on a threat, which as Pia says, “might not go down too well with a rebellious teenager”.
Sagittarius – The ‘outdoorsy’ parent
Pia says the Sagittarius parent will want to share their love of the outdoors and the wider-world with their family.
“They’re good for boy scouts and Sagittarius mums can often be tomboys,” she says.
“But again, make sure this is what your kids want. Sometimes their interests aren’t as aligned to kids who just want to read a book or stay indoors.”
Capricorn – The strict parent
“They can be a bit strict, stern, ambitious and overly academically focused, but it comes from a good place,” says Pia.
“They want their kid to go to the best school in terms of reputation because they can prioritise status but they might need to work on their patience if this isn’t what their children want.
“The relationship will thrive with their kids do well at academics – that’s their joy and pride.”
Aquarius – The ‘all our friends are family’ parent
“Everyone is your family. They keep large social circles which can include friends, colleagues and acquaintances so they’ll be a lot of activity and people,” she says,
“You can expect lots of chit chat and different activities to occupy the kids.”
Pisces – The artsy parent
“They want to bring out the artistic best in their kids with a heavy focus in music, painting, DIY crafts etc.,” says Pia.
“They give their kids a very playful and fun-filled childhood and are very forgiving and more relaxed on issues like mess, discipline and school.”
“Pisces might also find it difficult to discipline their kids. They’ll encourage their kids to chase their dreams, even if it’s not realistic. Not everyone can be a famous musician or artist,” says Pia.
