The Libra Parent

The Libra Parent

A typical Libra parent will go out of their way to be just and fair with their children. They will want to bring their children up in peaceful and harmonious surroundings where conflict is avoided or at least kept to a minimum. This means that the Libra parent is usually indulgent with their children will have a marked tendency to spoil them. They are also poor at establishing routines.

Fortunately you do have a strong sense of what you feel is right and this does give you the inner strength to put your foot down when necessary. In spite of having a reputation for being indecisive you are more than capable of demonstrating consistency when it comes to disciplining your children. In fact for such a laid-back person you have a remarkable ability to dominate proceedings and ensure that you get your own way. You’re also surprisingly adept at instilling your values into your children including what you regard as good taste and acceptable behaviour.

As you love to socialise and entertain at home your children will be well versed in the art of social etiquette and will also be keenly aware of what constitutes good and bad taste!

The Libra parent is often called upon to mediate in children’s disputes particularly those between siblings. Although the Libra does not relish getting involved in conflict they usually come up with a solution that works for all the children involved, which is impressive to say the least.

Libra tends to see their children as potential friends and as the children grow up they will find a non-judgemental and excellent listener in their Libra parent. It is likely that the Libra parent will bring their children up to be fair minded and have a keen sense of justice. They will also respect their children as individuals and encourage them to develop their own views and opinions rather than merely doing what everyone else does. As far as Libra is concerned every view held and every action taken should be a considered one.

Libra will show his or her children a great deal of affection and will take a great deal of pride in their child’s appearance and behaviour. Libra will also ensure that his or her child receives the best possible education and will encourage them to read and talk and an early age.

The Virgo Parent

The Virgo Parent

The Virgo parent takes their responsibilities seriously and makes it their duty to instil those Virgo values of hard work, responsibility, duty, taking care of possessions and taking care of your health.

If you are a Virgo parent your perfectionist tendencies are likely to extend to your offspring and you do really mean it when you say that you want you want them to be the best that they can be. Although you can be guilty of nit-picking when it comes to your children’s behaviour and accomplishments this is a gesture of love as far as you are concerned. It genuinely is one of the ways in which you show how much you love your children. You may, however, need to remind yourself that your children are doing their best even if their best falls below your exacting standards. So don’t forget to use praise as a motivational tool in addition to the constructive criticism you usually pride yourself on giving. Each has its place when it comes to raising a happy, healthy well-adjusted child, which is your ultimate goal, isn’t it?

The typical Virgo parent doesn’t just issue commands or dole out punishments out of the blue; they will always explain the reasons behind their actions. They will also encourage children to ask questions and the Virgo parent will explain the requests that he or she makes.

The Virgo parent is very generous with their time and will help their children as much as possible. Their forte is helping with detailed work and also giving practical help and advice. They support practical activities during free time and can adapt to almost any practical demand. They are less adept at responding to emotional demands but they will certainly make a valiant effort.

He or she gets upset by dirt and untidiness and may find it hard to express affection. One way in which Virgo expresses affection is by keeping their children neat, clean, tidy and as far as possible healthy. Virgo also ensures that their child has a structured routine, which is important. The Virgo parent may have to watch for a tendency to be a bit too frugal and a little bit too rigid when it comes to time-tabling activities. Sure, it’s a great idea to ensure that the money is in place for your child’s education but giving the odd spontaneous treat doesn’t hurt either. In fact it will do wonders when it comes to showing that you do love them. Take a leaf out of fellow Earth sign Taurus’ book and give hugs and kisses too. Sometimes a loving cuddle can say more than words, however carefully you choose them, can ever do.

Due to the sense of structure and order that a Virgo parent provides they are like to raise confident, empowered, practical and well-adjusted children. Virgo will also rather enjoy the experience of watching and helping their child develop into the best human being that they can be. This is just as well for the Virgo may find that there parenting skills are not appreciated until their offspring are old enough to see what a great job the Virgo parent did. It is rather a shame that it takes so long for Virgo to be appreciated as a parent for the decision to have a child will have been a carefully considered one, so the child will be very much wanted.

Tips for Virgo Parents

Do not let accusations of selfishness induce you to have more children than you can handle.

Accept that it is important to express physical affection towards children, so put daily hugs on your to do list until this activity becomes second nature to you.

Let your child teach you how to let go, relax and play – you may find your creativity rising as a result.

Try not to expect too much of either you as a parent or your children.

New Year, New You Birthday Resolutions for Libra

New Year, New You Birthday Resolutions for Libra

Astrologically the best time to make your New Year’s Resolutions isn’t New Year’s Day as many of us understand it. It is our own New Year’s Day; the day when the Sun returns to the place that it was at the time of our birth otherwise known as our birthday. This is a time when many of us do review what we have done to date and make a commitment to ourselves that (if things are not as we wish them to be) this year will be different. On our birthday we often decide how we want things be in the coming year and if we choose to make a resolution to accomplish something we are more likely to succeed than if we make a resolution at a time that has less personal significance for us.

Now when it comes to making birthday resolutions we are more likely to be successful if we pick resolutions that fit in with who really are as opposed to going for one that we think we ‘should’ make.

Why not resolve to become more like to like your Sun sign? Why not pick a few of those wonderful Sun sign strengths and character traits that you have waiting for you to develop, and develop some of them further? Why not play to your strengths and make some resolutions and goals that you will make you feel fulfilled when you hit them? How do I know that you will feel fulfilled when you become more like your Sun sign? Take a look at the blog manifesto for the answer to that one!

Developing your Sun sign strengths will make for more lasting results than trying to stick to a New Year’s resolution that is at odds with you really are. Let’s face it Aries is going to find sticking to a resolution to be less impatient much harder than resolving to be more assertive or to set up their own business. That’s not to say that developing your Sun sign strengths is always going to be easy, sometimes it will be rather challenging, but the results will be both satisfying and long lasting.

So with this in mind I am making a few Birthday Resolution suggestions based on your Sun sign. There is one Birthday Resolution suggestion that applies to all the Sun signs and that’s to love your Sun sign. Be proud to be a member of Team Aries, Team Taurus, Team Gemini, Team Cancer, Team Leo, Team Virgo, Team Libra, Team Scorpio, Team Sagittarius, Team Capricorn, Team Aquarius or Team Pisces. Have a look at some of the forums that are devoted to one specific Sun sign in order to connect with people who are the same Sun sign as you. Find out what makes them (and you) fabulous!

Rather than suggest you make Birthday Resolutions to deal with your Sun sign’s negative traits I’m going to suggest that you make New Year’s Resolutions that will bring out your Sun sign’s positive traits. The more you express those the less likely you are to express those nuisance negative traits that hold you back.

So what talents and traits might Libra resolve to make the most of?

New Year, New You. Birthday Resolutions For Libra

Virgo is usually into perfecting themselves so will be looking to make Birthday Resolutions that fit in with this drive. This is one of the few Sun signs where a resolution to get healthy will put them fully in touch with their Sun sign nature, so there will plenty of motivation to keep going until the desired result is achieved.

Virgo is great at analysis and should ensure that their lives are full of opportunities to make use of this great talent. A worthwhile resolution would be to perfect the ability to know when analysing becomes nit-picking or an excuse for procrastinating.  Sometimes one can analyse a situation to death and find oneself no further forward. Sometimes it’s better just to make a decision and stick with it rather than spending too long striving to come up the perfect answer. Learn to know when you do not have enough data to draw logical conclusions about what is going on, why someone is acting the way that they are and what is the best course of action to take. Let’s face it people and their feelings often don’t lend themselves to left brained rational analysis.

Virgo is usually great at seeing what could be improved or what needs to be changed and that includes their nearest and dearest. One great Birthday Resolution would be learn how to give constructive criticism rather than just criticism! That way you’ll get plenty of that appreciation that you so often miss out on!

Virgo often shows their love by doing practical things to help others out, so ensure that you have plenty of opportunities to do this. For example you might make A Birthday Resolution to help your child if they’re struggling with a homework assignment or you might help people who have literacy problems to understand any documents that they receive or to fill in forms.

Most Virgos are superb at time management, scheduling and organising others. If you have yet to develop those talents make a Birthday Resolution to do so in 2015.

The Leo Parent

The Leo Parent

A typical Leo parent is very conscientious about bringing up children and makes every effort to educate and stimulate their children. Few parents are better at creating a stimulating, playful environment for children than Leo parents. Enthusiastic and child-like Leo certainly knows how to reach out to and relate to children. This can lead to friction if the Leo parent is more generous and indulgent towards their children that the other parent. Take care to back your partner up on matters of discipline, unless you feel they are overstepping the mark Leo. Agree upon how to discipline your children and what constitutes over indulgence – and make sure you stick to your side of the bargain.

Leo parents insist on honesty and openness from their children as they expect their children to live by the same moral code that they do. They also expect their children to exhibit the same zest for life that they do so must be careful not to overwhelm a more diffident and shy child. The Leo parent must also be careful not to oppress their child’s personality and must be mindful of a tendency to put their needs before that of their child.

That said they are also great teachers and mentors and can be relied upon to introduce children to a great range of activities in order to fire their imagination.

Leo does expect to be the centre of attention and will be less than pleased if they feel overlooked. Provided that the Leo parent is appreciated they will be extremely generous and the whole family will bask in the warmth of the radiant glow cast by a happy and loved Lion. However, if Leo feels overlooked they can be very chilly indeed and will not be slow to let family members know how hurt they feel. This at least means that corrective action can be taken and that family conflicts can usually be resolved quickly. Some family conflicts can be avoided if all family members keep in mind the fact that a Leo parent does not tolerate being laughed at by anyone including their own children.

While the Leo parent is generous to a fault they do expect to be thanked and will be less than impressed at being taken for granted. So the children of one or more Leo parents will certainly know how to say to thank you and also how to be keenly aware of how other people are feeling.

Leo parents must beware that their natural desire to be proud of their children does not border on the obsessive. Be careful not to attempt to live through your children nor to diminish their achievements; and not to put too much pressure on them to succeed. No child wants to be made to feel a failure. Be careful also, to allow your child to develop at their own pace and not to demand they follow your advice. I know that you feel a responsibility towards those in your care but sometimes a child needs to learn from their mistakes.

As a parent Leo can be rather dominating and does like to lay down the law. Rebellion is frowned upon by this benign ruler!

The Cancer Parent

The Cancer Parent

It is likely that the Cancerian parent will throw themselves wholeheartedly into every aspect of parenting. From conception and all the stages in between until the children become adults (and beyond that for many Cancerians!) the Cancerian parent will embrace every minute with gusto. For the Cancerian parent this is what life is all about.

The typical Cancerian parent is loving, compassionate and nurturing. Although they may worry too much about their offspring they are very caring and will do their utmost to provide a safe, stable and secure environment in which to raise their offspring. Think of the meaning of the term ‘mother love’ and you’ll get what the Cancerian parent is about.

The Cancerian parent does need to guard against a tendency to do everything for their children because caring and nurturing (mothering for want of a better word) is how they express love. While this is great when the child is very young it can stifle development in later years if the child sits there expecting Mum or Dad to do everything for them. If everything is done for a child they can have difficulty learning to take care of themselves, so express your parenting skills by teaching your child all those shrewd tactics that you’ve learnt for dealing with life!  A tendency to be over-possessive also characterises the Cancerian parent and must be guarded against, so that you can take pleasure in watching your child grow and develop into an independent and well-adjusted adult.

As a parent Cancer will protect and support the children and will do anything to encourage and support their children’s creative development. Cancerian parents love looking after and playing with their offspring and will remember every birthday and anniversary. They can have difficulty letting go but are usually intuitive enough to understand when a child is truly ready to fly the nest. This intuition and empathy often comes in handy when dealing with family arguments too!

The Gemini Parent

The Gemini Parent

The typical Gemini parent can get on a child’s wavelength very easily. He or she will love playing, communicating with and teaching their offspring. They will be keen to get their child involved in activities that involve quick witted thinking, so will encourage debates and games that involve solving a puzzle for example. If you are a Gemini parent you will also enjoy reading to your children, watching movies or reality TV with them and discussing what you have all seen afterwards. You will encourage them to share their opinions with you but may struggle when it comes to emotions – both yours and theirs.  One of the key parenting skills that you may have to learn is expressing the love that you feel as opposed to intellectualising everything. There are times when words just aren’t enough and where hugs and kisses are more appropriate.

The Gemini parent will be keen to raise their child to be as quick-witted, curious and opinionated as they are and will struggle to connect with children who are just aren’t wired that way. As a Gemini parent you may struggle when it comes to children that you feel are clingy and insecure. You might also find the rigidity of a regular routine revolving around regular bed-times, feeds etc somewhat tiresome but you are sharp enough to understand that it is necessary. Let’s face it most children do need stability and routines – regular mealtimes, bedtimes and for their parents to be there at predictable times. That still leaves plenty of scope for introducing spontaneity in other areas.

Gemini will tend to use rational argument when disciplining or teaching a child. In theory that’s great because the child then knows why they are being disciplined  – just make sure that the child has the intellectual fire-power to grasp the rational argument, Gemini!

The Taurus Parent

The Taurus Parent

The typical Taurus parent is affectionate and tactile, so it is unlikely that the child of a Taurus will go short of hugs and praise. A stable and safe presence, the Bull does their best to ensure that their children feel that there is someone that they can trust and rely on. Like Aries the Taurus will let a child know exactly where they stand and is likely to establish a firm set of rules and standards. The Taurus parent wants their child to be a credit to them and to do well in life.

Taurus as a parent is endlessly patient and totally unflappable. They can cope with most things and will only get worked up if there is good reason to. Taurus does not tend to lose his or her temper without cause.

A very loving parent the Taurean can sometimes be guilty of over-indulging their children particularly when it comes to requests for sweeties, candy and nice clothes. This is not because the Taurus wants to buy love, far from it; they just want their child to have all the good things in life. They certainly won’t be bringing up spoiled brats because Taurus instils their own values into their children including being trustworthy, patient and not averse to hard work!

If Taurus has a flaw as a parent it is a tendency to towards dominance and possessiveness. Taurus also has to watch out for a propensity to be stubborn and inflexible and needs to watch this when dealing with children who do something unexpected or do something that the Taurus wouldn’t dream of doing.  This is particularly common during the teenage years when Taurus may have to bite their lip, stand back and let their child make some decisions of their own.

Taurus will support, protect and nurture the children and will expect high standards. They will encourage their children, boost their confidence and teach them self-respect.

The Taurus parent provides the very best for their children and will save for the future. Taureans will have complete confidence in their parenting abilities and won’t take kindly to someone else suggesting that might do things in a different way.

The Aries Parent

The Aries Parent

The Aries parent is usually full of life, energy and enthusiasm and prefers their child to be the same way. A laid back, unambitious or sensitive child can find the Aries parent somewhat insensitive, domineering and rather bossy. Letting a child go at their own pace can present quite a challenge for the Aries parent and so can the teenage years when children typically find the confidence to start mounting a challenge. Sure Aries can see that it’s all part of the growing up process but it can still put them in a state of high alert!

Aries is not known for censoring their thoughts or indeed what comes out their mouth, which combined with a tendency to lose their temper, can lead to them saying something that they will regret later. Also, Aries does have a tendency to play the blame game but at least Aries is open, honest and direct, so children will know exactly why the Aries parent is upset with them. This sign is not known for holding onto grudges so any punishments will be swift in coming and then the Ram will regard that as the end of the matter.

The typical Aries will give children plenty of affection, hugs and praise without spoiling them. An Aries parent is a devoted parent who will defend their child to the death while being realistic enough to accept that their child needs to be disciplined in order to become successful. An Aries can carry their competitive nature too far in terms of trying to decide their child’s future career. Aries wants his or her child to be first at everything. The Aries parent does have to be careful not to push their child too hard – not everyone will rise to the top, Aries! They can also get rather competitive with their child so need to keep those ‘win at all costs’ urges firmly in check particularly if they have a child with a tendency towards low self-esteem.

While it’s great to lead by example, you can intimidate less confident children who might feel that they can never be as successful as you. That said once your child hits their teenage years you often come into your own as a superb guide and mentor.

You are unlikely to have problems setting boundaries with your children and are unlikely to be your child’s best friend though a deep friendship based on mutual respect may well develop later. This is not to say that you are an austere or unapproachable parent merely that you believe in discipline and you believe that adults have special privileges.

That said so long as everybody knows and accepts their place i.e. you as head of family, Aries is a very playful sign, so an Aries parent is likely to create a magical, fun filled, fantasy world for his or her offspring. Naturally this will be nothing like the fantasy world created by the Pisces parent!
