Nothing is more important to a parent or guardian than seeing their children achieve so much in life. What better way to help your kid be their very best than through child astrology?
Like any other human, your little one also has their fate written in the stars. Unlike your typical adult astrology readings that speak about so much drama like love life and career, the kids’ version says many of their budding personalities and the paths they may take growing up.
But how can you harness the power of the stars and help your kid’s abilities shine through? Read on to find out!
What is child astrology?
As said, child astrology is Astrology Jr. It does not concern the things that bring headache to adults but instead emphasize the child’s current state that may affect them in the long term as they grow up.
Your child’s pediatrician may have told you that both nature and nurture influence how your kid will turn out. While you have control on the nurture part, you certainly don’t with nature.
One of the best ways to harness nature in your child’s upbringing is by determining their child astrology. Through this, you can have a broad overview of how they would turn out.
Additionally, child astrology can help you determine your style of parenting! Because being a good parent can be quite tricky, especially if you have different kids living under the same roof, knowing what the heavens have to say about them can give you an insight into how you would approach them individually.
Last but not least, child astrology can help emotionally prepare yourself for the most chaotic time in your kid’s life- their teenage years! They will be quite a handful once the hormones start kicking in.
But with the right mix of cosmic guidance and parental intervention, you can minimize the negative aspects of adolescence. It will also help you understand them better as they grow into the brilliant and productive individuals they are destined to become.
What does child astrology say about my kid?
Two words: A LOT. But what exactly can differ, depending on their sign. What is right for your Aries kid may not be applicable to your Pisces mini-me.
This article will be detailing the astrological attributes of a child’s sun sign. This means that the horoscopes here will depend on the Zodiac dominant in the sky during their birth.
If you feel like your child doesn’t quite hold up to what the next few paragraphs will be saying, it is best to have their birth chart on hand.
Regardless, since children are still in the process of determining their identities, their sun sign’s influence will always be quite substantial.
Aries (March 21 to April 20)
An Aries child is brimming with energy. They are also natural leaders; don’t get shocked when your kid is starting to direct their playmates in making a massive snow fort!
Unfortunately, these kids may strike people as somewhat bossy and aggressive. They may even go so far as hurting others unintentionally because of this behavior.
Taurus (April 21 to May 20)
A Taurus child is efficient and pragmatic. Their high intelligence combines with Venus’ charm, turning these kids into some of the most charismatic and lovable creatures anyone could encounter.
Unfortunately, these kids can be quite worldly and materialistic; meaning, they could care less for anything else as long as they have their bespoke toys to play with. Another headache-causing behavior of theirs is their unwillingness to try out new things, making the first days of kindergarten quite a challenge for any parent!
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)
A Gemini child is people smart- no matter where they are or who they are with, they can easily create lasting bonds with literally anyone they encounter! These kids are talented and distinguished as prodigies in any field they excel in.
Unfortunately, these kids can be quite chaotic and stir unnecessary trouble even if they do not intend to do so. They tend to talk out of turn and offend someone! Another thing to watch out for is their “switchable” personalities, making food preferences and mood swings a common occurrence to deal with.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)
A Cancer child is characteristically sensitive, yet at the same time, have a natural sense of care and compassion unlike any other. Their memory is also unusually sharp, allowing them to memorize even the smallest details about the people close to them.
Unfortunately, these kids are quite shy towards people whom they do not know. They might throw tantrums even when a well-meaning stranger comes close since they perceive it as a threat. These children also need constant reassurance and a feeling of security from their families, especially from their mothers or female caretakers.
Leo (July 21 to August 22)
A Leo child loves attention. They are very expressive and love it when they meet “new” people such as distant relatives, family friends, and even neighbors. These children are also highly creative and talented in the arts.
Unfortunately, these kids will cause quite a scene when they feel abandoned: aka when their caretakers do something other than dote over them. They can also be quite rebellious too, insisting what their impressionable minds think is right.
Virgo (August 23 to September 21)
A Virgo child loves order and perfection. They are easy to train on how to do household chores since this is second nature to them. These children are also quite good when it comes to doing handicrafts- think of them as budding artisans or engineers!
Unfortunately, these kids can be quite the picky eater and can get upset when they get their dreaded foodstuffs. If they perceive that things are not going as planned, expect these little perfectionists to sulk all day in the corner and not move an inch!
Libra (September 22 to October 20)
A Libra child is very family-oriented. They love to be around their parents and siblings, who will always remind them that they are loved and safe. These children also have a natural sense of justice and are peacemakers in their own right.
Unfortunately, these kids usually hide when they do something wrong. Ironically, despite being peace-loving, they believe that if they don’t show themselves after doing a big booboo, the adults would eventually forget. Family problems, especially those that involve parental separation and divorce, could easily break them, too.
Scorpio (October 21 to November 20)
A Scorpio child is disarmingly charming and intuitive. They don’t need to be told about something, they just know! These children are also sensitive, but unlike Cancer, they are a bit more emotionally resilient and are unafraid of whatever situation they may find themselves in.
Unfortunately, these kids are usually introverted, to the point that getting them to go out and socialize with other children their age is a challenge, especially if they already have their heads set on having that one specific friend to themselves. They may also show signs of being manipulative to get whatever toys and treats they want, no matter what.
Sagittarius (November 21 to December 21)
A Sagittarius child has a natural passion for adventure and the great outdoors. Getting them into unfamiliar environments will no doubt cause these kids to explode in happiness! These children are also naturally independent, making potty training a breeze for all parties involved.
Unfortunately, these kids don’t like getting assignments such as homework or chores. Also, they hate it for all their socialization skills when their parents or caretakers go full-on stage/ helicopter parent. They feel like their individuality is getting compromised and may become distant from the “offending” family member.
Capricorn (December 22 to January 21)
A Capricorn child is naturally mature for their age. They have a deep sense of responsibility and aren’t that much of a troublemaker. They can save their parents the pain of facing their teachers of principals- they’re just THAT well-behaved!
Unfortunately, these kids may feel like they don’t quite fit in with the other more rowdy kids around them. Like Virgo, they are sticklers for perfection, and the slightest indication of flaws will send them in a “quiet” rage. These can be anything from ripping drawings to throwing around their toys without any kind of noise from them!
Aquarius (January 22 to February 18)
An Aquarius child is weird… in all the best ways. They have unorthodox ideas that seem to bubble up from nowhere, a clear indicator of their relatively high IQs. They also love working with people, and they have a firm conviction in promoting fairness and teamwork.
Unfortunately, these kids don’t like it when their parents try to interfere, especially when they have a grand scheme brewing. They also hate it when people bypass their ideas in favor of what they think are boring or nonsensical. When they feel that people are becoming too intrusive, especially with their plans, they might just as well pick a fight!
Pisces (February 19 to March 20)
A Pisces child is naturally creative and imaginative. They have this sense of whimsy towards anything and everything. These kids also like to go with the flow, adapting as the world around them changes and expands as they go.
Unfortunately, these kids are susceptible to peer pressure. They also tend to let their emotions get the better of them, and their sometimes unrealistic imaginations might derail them from becoming rational-minded.
There is no such thing as a perfect parent, nor does the ideal child exist. What child astrology is presenting here is the reality that every child is remarkable. Despite the many flaws that they may have, they are still unique and lovable no matter the circumstances.
As a parent or guardian, your goal is to help your child become the best person they could be. Being aware of their strengths and weaknesses allows you to help you become the best guide they could ask for as they navigate through their loves.
Bear in mind that no matter how old, or whatever condition they may have, they still have their distinct identity. Projecting everything that you want for your child will go against what the heavens have in mind for their future.
Just as the stars guide you in becoming better for others, allow the cosmos to work in helping your child thrive. You will indeed find yourself thanking the heavens for helping you become the best parent you could ever aspire for.
