Being a parent is one of the hardest jobs around that is often underestimated, and the work usually falls on the mom. Dads have a load as well but, in most households, dads are the ones who are the main breadwinners and as a result, are overall less involved in the decision making and managing the home. That is unless they are single dads. This is even the case with working moms which makes the parenting gig even more stressful.
However, this time the focus is on moms, and most moms really do their best with raising their kids. But they are human, and their strengths and weaknesses will be expressed through their zodiac signs. What are your mom’s biggest strengths and weaknesses based on her zodiac sign? Let’s find out!
Aries – Protective but Impatient
Aries is the first fire sign of the zodiac and the first sign in general. It is common to see Aries moms enjoy engaging in physical activity with their kids which is a great strength as it promotes good vitality. However, they are also highly protective and will advocate for their kids at any chance they have. They have a way to make their voices heard as well.
However, these moms are fiery by nature and can easily lose their patience if their kids are trying them. They can be quite intimidating as well and can be known to lose their tempers at the drop of a hat. Then they do end up feeling quite guilty for it and wish they could slow down and stay calmer.
Taurus – Provides Security but Struggles with Letting Go
Taurus is the fixed earth sign of the zodiac that has a need for material security and routine. Therefore, Taurean moms will make sure that their kids are well-fed, clothed well, and live in a good home. They will also set their kids on a schedule and keep them on a routine which is important for kids’ sense of security.
However, as kids grow and mature, they become more independent by nature, and Taurean moms do struggle with this issue. They want to hang on and it is not that they purposely want to stifle their kids’ growth. They struggle with letting go of the fact that their kids are growing up and away from them. This can cause the Taurus mom a lot of stress because of their nature when it comes to wanting to keep things the same.
Gemini – Great with Providing Stimulation but Struggles With Routine
Gemini is the master communicator of the zodiac and this air sign is all about learning, socializing, and trying out different activities. Gemini moms are excellent when it comes to keeping their kids intellectually and physically stimulated. They will encourage their kids to learn and read and will encourage their kids to try out different activities. Kids of Gemini moms will never be bored!
However, Gemini moms tend to be too busy to the point that they will not keep a routine. And even though kids need stimulation, they also need to be on a routine. It is important for their sense of security.
Cancer – Nurturing but Too Emotional
Cancer is the most nurturing and emotional sign of the zodiac as it is a cardinal water sign. In fact, it is the mother of the zodiac, and you can bet a Cancer mother will do what they can to nurture their kids the best way they can. They will take excellent care of their kids when they are sick and will feed them delicious and comforting foods otherwise. These moms only want their kids to be comfortable, happy, and healthy.
However, these moms are too emotional to the point that they can make mountains out of molehills. For instance, when their kids accidentally trip and don’t injure themselves, Cancer moms will be a lot more upset over it than the kids would have been. That can only cause their kids to become just as upset over minor problems.
Leo – Supportive but Must Be in the Spotlight
Leo is all about wanting to shine, and Leo moms will support their kids so they can shine in ways that are natural to them. These moms will encourage their kids to try out different activities so they can find what is the right fit for them. This way, they can be their best at it. For instance, if a Leo mom’s child falls in love with painting, then the mom will support their love for painting. They will encourage them to do their best with it as well so they can make something of themselves with it.
However, at the same time, since Leos love to be in the spotlight, these moms will want to add themselves to it. If they were the ones to encourage their kids to do something they love, they will want to take the credit for it and show that off. They will also want their kids to be the ones noticed over other kids around them. This can only cause their kids not to want to share which is important for all kids to learn at an early age.
Virgo – Organized but Can Be Prone to Burnout
Virgo is all about organization and practicality. Therefore, Virgo moms are highly practical and know how to keep their kids organized. They will encourage their kids to be organized and will also encourage them to put their items away after using them. Virgo moms will also teach their kids about money and the importance of saving at a young age as well.
However, Virgo moms will also be the type to overdo it. They will cook, then clean, and make the home spotless. They will worry too much about that in addition to fulfilling their motherhood duties. Therefore, they become prone to burnout and end up not being able to accomplish anything as a result. These moms really need to take a step back and focus on the most important tasks – and to rest!
Libra – Fair but Indecisive
Libra moms are quite fair and balanced as they want to be fair to their kids and teach their kids fairness as well. In fact, they also teach their kids that unfortunately, life is not fair. The world is not fair, and this can help alleviate disappointment in the future. These moms will also teach their kids to share from an early age.
However, Libra moms struggle with making decisions and will have to go to professionals to help them make decisions. Professionals such as teachers or doctors, that is. And unless the father of the kids is also a Libra, the decision-making will be left up to him.
Scorpio – Protective but Intimidating
Scorpio is the most intense sign of the zodiac. However, those who have the sun sign are highly protective as well as intuitive. Therefore, Scorpio moms will go out of their ways to protect their kids and advocate for them to the point that they will be heard. That is because Scorpios have the magic touch as that goes.
However, if her kids purposely disappoint her by lying, these moms will have no tolerance for that. Therefore, they will not hesitate to punish them to the point of intimidation. An example is that the mom would leave the child with the electronic device but would take the charger away! That is worse than taking both away! Her kids will not want to lie to her again.
Sagittarius – Optimistic but Values Freedom Too Much
Sagittarius is an optimistic and adventurous sign. Moms that have this sun sign will definitely see the glass half-full and will also teach her kids how to be positive during times of adversity. She will also encourage them to explore and to find their adventurous side. Therefore, a Sagittarius mom will never allow her kids to be bored.
However, the fact of the matter is that Sagittarius individuals value their freedom too much. These moms can easily decide to pull their kids out of school to go on vacation. These moms do not like to be tied down and as a result, they will not be willing to keep their kids on a much-needed routine. Parenting is not the best fit for a Sagittarius for this reason alone.
Capricorn – Teach Their Kids How to Have a Good Work Ethic but Can Have High Expectations
Capricorns are the achievers of the zodiac, and moms that have this sign will teach their kids the value of hard work as well as the value of the dollar. They will help keep homes stable and thriving. In addition to that, these moms will also encourage their kids to do chores from an early age so they develop an appreciation for hard work. They will also learn how to be responsible.
However, these moms can also place high expectations on her kids. This can cause her kids to feel bad if they don’t meet up to her expectations. And the reality is that these moms really have high expectations of themselves. They are moms just like any other mom and do their best as a result, and that is what they should always remember.
Aquarius – Encourages Uniqueness but Detached
Aquarius is the sign that is all about uniqueness and innovation, and humanitarianism. Moms that have this sun sign do encourage their kids to embrace their uniqueness which helps them with boosting their self-esteem. They encourage their kids to be proud of who they are, and they also teach them kindness and helping out with charities and humanitarian causes.
However, they also are detached by nature. They may seem distant and their kids may wonder if their moms love them at times because of this. Aquarian moms do love their kids, but their detached nature does not always make them the most demonstrative. Moms must work on ways to show their kids how much they love them if they ever question it.
Pisces – Supportive of Feelings but Not Good with Discipline
Pisces is all about arts, imagination, and emotions given it is a water sign. Therefore, Pisces moms not only encourage their kids to become involved with the arts and to use their imagination. They are also there to support their feelings in any way and form. Therefore, their kids will always feel supported.
However, Pisces moms do not always provide the proper discipline that kids need. They can be too soft at times when kids should have a time-out. If you say ‘no no no’ while a child is throwing a temper tantrum, that won’t be effective as putting them into a time-out would be, so they have time to think and to cool down.
Being a mom is hard and every mom has their own strengths and weaknesses. However, moms can learn about the areas where they can work on if they are aware of their own horoscopes. If they don’t possess the weaknesses associated with their sun sign, they will have to look at their moon or rising sign for that. And sometimes if they have the sun and other planets in a certain house in their chart, that can mimic the traits of a sun sign as well.
For instance, if the mom is a Capricorn but has plenty of Gemini-like traits, then there are several reasons for that. Sure, she could have a moon sign in Gemini, or her rising sign could be that. Or, she may have a stellium including her sun in the Third House. That would explain it! But a good mom always does her best, and there is no such thing as perfection.
