There’s so much to unpack with parenting; we need all of the help we can get, right? So we sat down with Lisa Marie Astrology to learn how we can look to the stars for some parenting tips. Astrology can be another tool to help work through all the highs and lows of parenting, whether your little one is an infant or already in high school!
Identify which element your kiddo’s Sun sign is attributed to as well as your own Sun sign element, and read below on how your two elements tend to interact together.
If your babe is a Fire sign.. (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius)
Slow and steady wins the race, right? Not for your Fire sign babe—they are showing up in full force, moving fast, and leading the charge. Fire signs are brave, outspoken, and passionate—all amazing things—but sometimes they can be a bit too fiery of a personality or even a bit aggressive with their approach to handling adversity.
If you’re a FIRE sign parent, you may find that you and your kiddo bring the best out of each other while at times epically butting heads. Encourage reflection before reaction to cool things down when things get heated.
If you’re an EARTH sign parent, you may get some resistance from your Fire sign babe with creating routines and schedules, but stay the course and you will create the perfect conditions for your babe’s light to really shine.
If you’re an AIR sign parent, articulating new ideas and approaches can help build your Fire sign kiddo’s confidence, spark, and appreciation for trying new things.
If you’re a WATER sign parent, the sweet spot of this matchup is helping your Fire sign little one think and feel more, instead of running off head first with their impulsiveness.
If your little is an Earth sign… (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn)
Earth signs find solace in nature, delicious food, and routine, routine, routine. They gravitate to keeping things in order and strive for control over the situation at hand. In their relentless pursuit of perfection, Earth signs can oftentimes become very stubborn and get lost in the minutia and miss out on whatever else is going on around them.
If you’re a FIRE sign parent, this matchup can result in a power struggle, so be sure to approach any conflict with both sides feeling heard and understood.
If you’re an EARTH sign parent, your kiddo can become your PIC for keeping things clean and orderly, followed up by enjoying good food together.
If you’re an AIR sign parent, the spontaneous, dreamy approach of an Air sign is the opposite of where an Earth sign feels comfortable. Add in some predictability to any new or changing situation with a well-articulated plan or some comfort food staples for your Earth sign babe.
If you’re a WATER sign parent, your Earth sign babe vibes really well with the gentle, sensitive approach of a Water sign.
If your kiddo is an Air sign… (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius)
Air signs are all about harmony, communication, and observation, so your babe is likely a social butterfly that doesn’t miss a beat! With their gift of gab and their brains constantly making connections with everything around them, Air signs are often easily distracted or stricken by boredom, so don’t be surprised if it takes a little more effort and creativity at times to keep them focused.
If you’re a FIRE sign parent, you can give your kiddo the push they need to be adventurous or put an idea they had into action.
If you’re an EARTH sign parent, you are the grounding force, so be sure to leverage your practical nature to make your babe’s fun ideas happen while keep their feet firmly planted on the ground.
If you’re an AIR sign parent, you and your kiddo can chat it up like there’s no tomorrow and you can come up with so many great ideas together; don’t forget to put some ideas in motion!
If you’re a WATER sign parent, help your babe quiet their mind by helping them connect their thoughts to situations and feelings and then letting it go.
If your mini is a Water sign… (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)
If you have a little one with a Water Sun sign, you likely have a very deep, sensitive, sweet soul on your hands. Water signs show up in the world leading with their emotions; they feel very deeply, more than we often realize. Water signs can be very outwardly emotional (tears, needing extra snuggles and comfort) but can also get quiet and retreat when they are feeling overwhelmed.
If you’re a FIRE sign parent, your approaches to life are quite different, but with some patience and grace, your go-getter attitude can add some outward confidence to your kiddo.
If you’re an EARTH sign parent, use your gifts of organization and practicality to create beautiful and comfortable spaces in your home (and elsewhere) to ensure your babe feels at their most secure.
If you’re an AIR sign parent, put words to your little one’s emotions so they can navigate their feelings and work to feel comfortable talking about them.
If you’re a WATER sign parent, you’ll find common, comfortable ground with your babe in being still, gentle, and quiet together.
