Nothing is as mysterious as the allure of horoscope signs and compatibility (well okay, UFOs might hold a bit more mystery but they won't tell people who they're most likely to fight with) and they're not just for predicting romantic encounters. Horoscopes have been around since the beginning of time and many cultures believe that the date someone were born holds the key to unlocking the truth about their personality and compatibility. Based on everyone's star sign, the time period in which they were born, and the aligning of the stars, horoscopes attempt to virtually predict their life.
The zodiac sign people fall under may affect their relationship with their child depending on which sign they're born under and if anything, it may help predict future behavior. This may be true for parent/child signs as well. The combinations could be anything from total opposite personalities traits that fit perfectly together or disastrous compatibilities that will require a lot of work and understanding on both of your ends. If readers don't believe that their fate was written in the stars from the moment they were born, then this is just a fun read to see if it's at all accurate! However, if readers do give any merit to horoscopes, then it's time they found out what they and their child's signs mean together.
24 Perfect: Taurus And Scorpio
Each zodiac sign has an element attached to it, which makes compatibility somewhat easier to predict based on elemental behavior. For example, you wouldn't mix a fire sign with a water sign unless the traits of both signs somehow mesh.
Taurus is an earth sign while Scorpio is a water sign which means emotional grounding is the key to making this relationship work.
Taurus is grounded and level-headed making for a great parent to a water sign like Scorpio who can be emotionally tumultuous and full of feelings. The two create a balance and Taurus becomes a stable and loving parent for Scorpio who is often adventurous, impulsive, and scattered -- in the best way possible. The earth sign comforts the sad water sign when things aren't going well, and in response, Scorpio will push Taurus to be bolder and encourage the earth sign to teach their child everything about the world and life itself. Scorpio will look towards you for advice and even though they won't necessarily take it, they need constant roots and for Taurus to be a rock in their life. When your child gets into a bind, it's to you they'll look for comfort and stability. It's an exciting and constantly evolving relationship between the two.
23 Perfect: Virgo And Pisces
Emotion reigns supreme in this nearly perfect pairing. As a Virgo parent, you are realistic and full of sage advice that you can guide your water sign child with. Wisdom is your strong suit as a parent and will become the forefront of your relationship. If your child is a Pisces, they'll be creative and artistic, full of imagination and the inclination to create. Their creativity in life will be guided by the wisdom you impart to them and this will become incredibly important later on in life.
As Pisces gets older and their dreams get bigger, they'll easily make friends but none will have a stronger bond than the one your child has with you.
It's because of this that they'll need you to pick them up when they're down and use your own personal experience to help them out of the emotional rut they may find themselves in when their lengthy aspirations don't pan out. In addition, your child will be exceptionally good at reading emotions and being in tune with you which will make for a stronger relationship overall and no hidden secrets. Emotional intelligence is what these signs have in common, and that makes for a strong and healthy relationship.
22 Perfect: Capricorn And Cancer
Both of these signs have an interesting thing in common because they do differ significantly.
Capricorn and Cancer are both constantly intrigued and all about learning new information, and about learning, period.
Capricorn parents are incredibly careful and cautious, while tediously maintaining their routines and being protective of absolutely everyone in your life. Your Cancer child has a fascination with life that has already happened, bringing the two of you closer together as you bond over family history and documentaries showing days past. This aspect of learning means you'll always have something in common and will be able to strengthen your relationship over time, but Cancer will need guidance to direct their attention to other things that occur in the present time. Your child needs and wants mental stimulation and will be thrilled to be anywhere they can actively think and discuss it with you. Your protectiveness will be appreciated by a Cancer child and will give them the freedom to explore things in a safe environment -- but remember, loosening the reigns is important sometimes too. Curiosity is an incredible quality to have, and the drive to learn will help your child throughout their entire life.
21 Perfect: Gemini And Aries
The similarities are unreal with these two signs which are especially interesting considering Gemini is an air sign, while Aries is a water sign. In a way, it makes sense for the two to go hand-in-hand as air fuels fire, but the way the two of you go about things as your child gets older will begin to differ slightly.
Loving life and making new discoveries is what will keep your relationship alive and keep it from getting boring, as the two of you have a strong interest in pursuing all things new and exciting.
As your Aries child gets older and begins to take bigger risks in the hope of a bigger payoff, your differences become more and more evident. The Gemini parent prides him or herself on taking calculated risks only and thinking out every possible move before jumping, while your child is quite the opposite at an older age. Aries loves giving everything they have and can easily have their world turned upside-down because of it, which is where Gemini will need to learn how to temper their prudent nature and give Aries the encouragement they need to stand up and try again. Rather than sternly reprimanding your child, they'll need support and advice from you since you will always have their full respect and admiration. You have the power to tame their impulsive nature and educate them, and together the two of you can create a great balance.
20 Perfect: Libra And Leo
In stark contrast to the previous sign pairing, Libra and Leo are quite the different zodiac signs. It's written into the stars that Leo is known for its demanding and confident nature, which puts Libra parents on a bit of a curve as far as parenting goes. Oddly enough, opposites do indeed attract in the case of a Libra parent and Leo child. Libra is much more careful, quiet, and shy-natured when it comes to the outside world, which will, in turn, give Leo children a firm grounding in how to be cautious and put thought into everything they do.
Libra parents will often be surprised by their Leo children, especially when they're throwing all caution out the window and blaze through life without a care in the world.
While Libra parents are somewhat perfectionists and enjoy their quiet and peaceful lifestyle, Leo kids will consistently bring an element of surprise and excitement into the family with their active nature and rambunctious personality. This is a case where parents will learn a lot from their children, such as how to be adventurous and just do things according to how they feel rather than a plan that's been well thought out.
19 Perfect: Aquarius And Sagittarius
This is a zodiac pairing where patience is key. Tiny Sagittarius will be impulsive and interested in just about everything and to have things around that are both mentally and physically stimulating is great for them to get out all their excess energy.
In keeping with this nature, Sagittarius will also be incredibly impatient and want things when they want them. This will also make them quickly disinterested in things that once held their attention. This is why air sign Aquarius needs to play an important role in attention-giving and fostering a solid lesson in patience for their child.
If you consistently give your child the attention he or she needs while also encouraging them to wait and hold an interest in various things, this relationship will be golden. Your child will have the tolerance to let you teach them, and with your intellectual Aquarius nature, you'll have just the willpower to help guide them in the right direction. Fostering interests that entertain both of you will be a fantastic way to bond and create a strong connection, while also keeping your child from growing overly impatient and giving up. It's a mom's job to harness their child's best qualities and reign them in when necessary.
18 Perfect: Cancer And Taurus
While earth signs parenting water signs is a great match, it works the other way around as well. These two have an unbelievable bond and are by far one of the best matches as far as compatibility levels go.
A Cancer parent and Taurus child will be the best of friends because of their shared interests. The two of you will have so much in common that fighting will be a rarity and you'll not likely need to worry about the two of you having a difference of opinion.
Hangouts will turn into hours of bonding over just about anything, which won't be difficult to figure out since you'll most likely have the same taste in nearly everything. Whether it's outdoor activities, picking a place to eat, finding a game to pass the time, or just deciding on a movie to watch, these things will come easily to the two of you. Since Taurus learns in a more hands-on way, your child will need you to teach him or her things in a physical way rather than just explaining and showing. The trouble comes when boredom strikes, and the two signs can prevent this by vowing every week to try something new: Whether it's a new food, television show, or even a new place to shop or visit.
17 Perfect: Aquarius And Gemini
If there ever was a perfect intellectual match, Aquarius and Gemini would be it. The two of you are both air signs which makes you both incredibly smart and fascinated with the world around you. In a very similar way to the previous pairing, these two signs are perfection when it comes to mental stimulation and constantly eager to learn. At a young age, your child will be itching to be educated and will want to learn everything they possibly can.
It'll be easy to see why the two of you will bond so well and you'll most likely be fused together discussing the latest news, scientific discovery, or the last novel you've read.
Your personalities function at a near-genius level and both of you would rather be engrossed in a science textbook than playing outside or involved in some kind of physical activity. While your IQ levels soar and you bond over microbiology and physics, you'll need to draw in another aspect to create excitement in your lives and break up the monotony of the things you do every day. By engaging in some kind of physical activity you'll be able to motivate each other to get outside of your comfort zone while also taking a break from serious mental stimulation.
16 Perfect: Pisces And Capricorn
This pairing is unique in the sense that both signs will function in a teacher-student scenario. Capricorn qualities create children who are often not as social or interested in play activities as other children and instead would rather be inside their own heads, analyzing and thinking. While these qualities are incredible as an adult, they can be isolating and stubborn for a child.
Capricorn children are capable of great things and will enjoy anything with a technical component but need water sign parents like Pisces to guide them to a more creative and outgoing way of living.
Pisces parents are naturally charismatic and intuitively inclined which will help them to foster the creativity in their kids and always be there to listen to problems and be empathetic to their meticulous kids. While Capricorn constantly feels the need to color inside the lines, Pisces can come in and show their child the world outside of the box that Capricorn children so often fit things into. They can also be easily overwhelmed since their minds work like calculators and this is where Pisces parents will be able to ease their thoughts and comfort them in a way in which they lack.
15 Perfect: Libra And Aries
We already know that Aries signs can be a bit of a handful, and parents certainly have their time occupied with Aries kids. Libras err on the side of calm and quiet, opting to be in a peaceful setting rather than disturb the world around them with the curiosity that fuels Aries. Because of this, it may take a bit of time to find the right balance but rest assured that once you do, it'll be smooth sailing.
Aries kids will draw out the intrigue in Libra parents as they constantly ask questions about the things around them and have a burning desire to explore and learn everything about the world.
Traditionally, Libras strive to maintain a balance in their own personal lives by being partially guarded in an effort to maintain their independence and protect the things they love to do. Having a child born under Aries will encourage you to break out of your shell since you'll be busy chasing them around and helping them learn, while your equilibrium in life will bring stability and security to your child. This is something that Aries desperately needs as they navigate their lives and don't necessarily pay attention to boundaries, and that's something your child can learn from you. When they've learned their own balance, the two of you will have an exciting and meaningful existence together as you learn from each other, but don't be surprised when your child becomes a professional stunt double.
14 Perfect: Leo And Gemini
From the outside, this combination seems nearly catastrophic. In reality, when done correctly, the lives of both a Leo parent and Gemini child can become a beautiful mutual relationship.
With the stronger personality of Leo being on the parenting end, your Gemini child will constantly be fascinated by the way you live your life and how you interact and go about things so bravely.
As a Gemini, your child will be a silent thinker and much quieter than you, which may make for some rough patches but they'll quickly be smoothed over. Gemini is known for its unparalleled intelligence which will cause your first instinct to be controlling their organization and way of life, but this is where you'll need to have patience. Gemini will move along at a slower pace as they take the time to figure things out, including their own life, but as a Leo parent, you need to remain close by to guide them and encourage their hopes and dreams. You can't keep your child from making mistakes, Leo parent, so don't even try -- instead, let them stumble on their own because as Geminis, they'll learn how to get back up and choose the smarter path.
13 Perfect: Virgo And Taurus
Taurus will make for a loyal and confident baby. Similar to Leo children while not as headstrong, a Taurus child has much in common with its Virgo parent.
Both of these signs are naturally guarded and skeptical of new things, which will bring comfort to the aspect of trying new things together.
Both of these earth signs will find an easy time going about new experiences with their traditionally grounded and sensitive nature and family is at the core of everything they do. You'll discover that you both have a fierce loyalty to family and are protective of the bonds you've created, and this is especially strong amongst Taurus with their bull-like nature. This makes for a long-lasting and genuinely tried and true lifetime relationship that will make the two of you not only parent and child but best friends and confidants as well. With such a surefire pairing be cautious to not fall too into a routine like what Virgos are known for, and instead vow to try new things or engage in a fun activity at least once a week that the two of you have never done before. Since you both have somewhat of a critical and skeptical nature, this will be made easier as you take comfort in each other and discuss the best course of action.
12 Trouble: Leo And Scorpio
This match is a doozy. Simply because opposites often attract doesn't mean they always work and this is one combination that can prove to be volatile. Leo is a strong fire sign who is confident and bold, while Scorpio is a water sign with an inclination to be stubborn and protective of themselves.
The two of you will love each other and have something that seems unbreakable, but as far as getting along goes, patience and willpower will be tested on both ends.
Scorpio will be untrusting of anything new and different from what they know, while Leo parents will try and encourage change and growth at every turn. This may turn into a significant difference in beliefs while pushing the two opposite signs apart. You are both strong but Scorpio also wants to be independently strong, which can really wear out a Leo parent as they try and do what they think is best and consistently meet resistance. Leo parents should know that the best thing they can do is use their outgoing and confident nature to help their Scorpio children find ways to forget about protecting themselves for awhile, whether it's as simple as going to the park or visiting a museum. A Scorpio's first inclination is going to be to build a wall, and it's up to a Leo parent to find a way over and keep from being shut out.
11 Trouble: Capricorn And Gemini
The combination of Capricorn and Gemini is almost hilariously muddled. You two are complete opposites and since Capricorn is an earth sign while Gemini is an air sign, the pairing could go either way.
Natural instincts tell you that Capricorn is grounded and stable, while Gemini is intuitive and naturally intrigued by everything. This makes for some frustrating parenting but not impossible.
It will take a lot of understanding on a Capricorn parent's end to get a feel for what makes your Gemini child tick since they're fascinated by all things intellectual but has no direct path or organization to their learning. As an earth sign parent, you are anal and routine, and stick to well-thought-out plans and going by the book. Gemini kids will ponder and think of absolutely everything which may drive level-headed Capricorn parents crazy while they watch their kids with their heads in the sky. What's important to remember is this: There's a time for inserting control and a time for letting go. Let your child conduct their experiments and foster their inquisitive nature by holding on loosely and when they begin to trek too far off, that's when you can use your stern Capricorn nature to bring them back to reality.
10 Trouble: Pisces And Taurus
These two signs spell trouble only in the sense that they go about things in such a different way. Your personalities are complete opposites which will require a lot of work on both ends to reign in traits that come naturally to you. Pisces is a fluid water sign and not easily bothered by change or unpredictability, and since they're so intuitive and in-tune with those around them, it makes adapting to change much easier. Taurus is an earth sign who is skeptical by nature and stubborn as all get out, and because of this, they can lead with impulsive actions while hating the change that comes about.
Pisces parents will need to be strong-willed and less "go with the flow" than they normally are to bring in Taurus's strong-willed nature and need to remain in their comfort zone.
It will be your job as a parent to gently ease your Taurus child into new situations and break free of the mold they fit themselves into, and while it's easier said than done, your child will appreciate the effort you put in to guide them and help them foster a love for life that doesn't constantly include criticism and analyzing.
9 Trouble: Aquarius And Leo
Oh boy, Leo children are certainly a handful. For water sign Aquarius, parenting them can prove to be a challenge. You are quiet and thoughtful and would rather spend your time in a quiet room with a mentally-stimulating book, while your child is off in the other room wrecking their toys and itching to explore the outside world. Leo children can be misunderstood because of their strong nature and are truly just adventurous and love to make discoveries and spice up their lives. Because of this desire, Aquarius parents will need to learn how to keep up if they want to be super involved in their child's lives.
Your child will prove to be determined and at times make you somewhat uncomfortable with the fire that's lit within them, but fear not Aquarius parents -- it takes water to lessen a flame.
As their parent you'll need to set ground rules and enforce them so that a Leo child knows boundaries, otherwise, it's likely that their heated personality will easily overcome your steadfast and humble nature. The parenting pair is not impossible, but it will definitely take more effort on your end to set your tiny Leo on the right path and subdue their roar to an audible rumble.
8 Trouble: Sagittarius And Virgo
Yikes! If you were looking for signs that are complete opposites, you couldn't get any more polar than with these two. Sagittarius is a fire sign to Virgo's quiet and shy earth-like nature, and the two of you together can be quite the test.
You couldn't be more different and that will definitely make for a tough few first years as your child grows into him or herself and learns about their world, as opposed to your feisty and naturally outgoing nature.
Your child will be in their own routine which will, of course, be in their comfort zone, and this may be frustrating to a brave and welcoming Sagittarius parent who lives for all things new and exciting. If no effort is put forth to help your child out of their self-created world of comfort, then they'll continue this behavior into adulthood and potentially drift apart from you. It's up to you, fire sign parent, to help them break the mold and (gently) encourage them to look past what they know and try new things. At a young age, this will be just enough to possibly make them comfortable doing new things as an adult and seeing new places. Virgo kids need your help to foster and love the things they normally would never try or do.
7 Trouble: Virgo And Aries
Both Virgo and Aries have the potential for greatness. This is because Virgo is careful and cautious by nature which leads to perfection, while Aries is courageous and takes the risk no matter the cost. Both of you can easily get on each other's nerves without an understanding of the others' sign but it doesn't necessarily have to be this way.
This is a classic case of a parent needing to step back and learn from their child. Aries is the counterbalance to Virgo's tempered and thought-out nature and as such can become a valuable tool in teaching Virgo parents how to break out of their shell and do exciting activities or explore with their children.
If Virgo parents can foster the explorative nature of their Aries babies while still maintaining a balance of safety and caution that doesn't drive Aries too overboard, then this will turn into a well-paired match. If your child's impulsive and quick nature is too much for you to handle then this zodiac combo spells disaster for the both of you. The one thing you two will have in common is the love and bond between child and parent, and that will keep you connected as you learn how to navigate both sign's qualities and traits and learn how to fit them together.
6 Trouble: Aquarius And Libra
These signs are a tough pairing just based on how intellectually complicated the two of you are. As adults, your relationship will be solid and genuine as you find common ground and interests that both of you enjoy. In the growing up years, however, things prove to be a bit more difficult and not nearly as simple. For starters, you're both intellectual and smart. This bodes well as your child gets older and begins to understand the world around them and is anxious to learn more because as a thoughtful and intelligent Aquarius you'll be able to help them with this feat.
The problem arises when intellect only goes so far and the two of you are found lacking in the emotional capability department, with Libra leading the downward trend.
Libra's connection to you leans towards vague and ambiguous as they begin to lose understanding in the bond the two of you have if it's simply just based on books and knowledge. You, as the Aquarius, can use that intuitive aspect of your water sign to reign little Libra in and distract them from this in-between limbo and remind them how much you love them, with or without a high IQ.
5 Trouble: Capricorn And Aries
Let's face it: All fire sign children are going to be a ball of energy and tough to direct. This makes them a formidable opponent for any parent, especially one of an earth element-sign since they're so grounded and practical. To a Capricorn parent, and Aries child can seem like handful with their pension for tenacity and need to be insanely active at all times. Initially, this can be off-putting to you but stepping back and observing your Aries child will be the key to unlocking and successful and fulfilling relationship with them. Your child will be the opposite of you in the sense that they'll love all the things that you may not or may have been too uneasy to try. Fear isn't a quality that little Aries exhibits and they're going to need this freedom to explore who they are as they slowly begin to learn the world around them. This may spell out crisis to a Capricorn parent who derives normalcy from their routine and having every aspect of their life planned to a T and in order, but this is a great chance to live vicariously through your child's excitement about life. Sure they'll make mistakes, but that's when careful Capricorn can lead them the right way and help them find a sense of stability amidst self-created chaos.
4 Trouble: Gemini And Scorpio
The twins and a scorpion definitely don't sound like a likely match, and this is evident in their star signs. The match isn't a complete disaster, but the two of you are different enough to cause some eyebrow-raising. Gemini is a slow and deliberate thinker who sees learning as the epitome of life. Scorpio has a classic case of being stubborn and deliberate, and sometimes the two of you can clash simply because your personalities aren't a great matchup.
Scorpio is truly fearless and because of this tends to scare you in the sense that they can't be controlled, but instead you should look at it as a positive quality that you can use to teach your child how important it is to slow down sometimes.
They're a thousand miles a minute in true Scorpio nature and sometimes it will prove difficult to get through to them since they're built so well for adapting to every scenario, but as an intellectual Gemini, this gives you the edge to educate them and bring them in using your mindfulness. They'll eventually learn from you and pick up on the qualities you have, and hopefully be able to incorporate that into their fierce path to success.
3 Trouble: Leo And Capricorn
Capricorn children need constant encouragement in case their endeavors fail. Since they are so analytical and take so much pride in their careful and meticulous work, they need parents who will be there at the end rather than being overly involved in the beginning and during the middle of their ventures.
Capricorns like to figure things out on their own with their high intellect, and Leo parents will, upon first instinct, want to get involved and jazz things up for uber-particular Capricorns.
It's difficult to let your child learn on their own but don't fret, that's what Capricorns do best. The most important thing is that Leo parents use their strong personalities to swoop in and pick up their child if something they attempt does fail because it will be positively devasting to a Capricorn. They'll derive their confidence from completing their own experiments and trials, but they'll need you as a strong influence to constantly stand by the sidelines and cheer them on. This will absolutely prove difficult for a Leo but is necessary because the end result will be a confident and strong Capricorn child who will have a tight-locked bond with you.
2 Trouble: Virgo And Gemini
Virgo and Gemini have traits in common that will make them perfect together, but also have qualities that might push them further apart. Gemini kids are curious by nature and absolutely adore learning, but are often scatterbrained and all over the place in their methods of doing so. This pales in comparison to Virgo's specific way of doing things and carefully thought-out plans to go about their own education and causes tension.
Virgo parents need to step out of their comfort zones to follow their Gemini kids down each path, as crazy as it may seem to collected and thoughtful Virgo.
Gemini kids need to take a lesson from their parents on how to be organized and prudent since later on in life it will help them achieve their goals and satisfy their curiosity. The two have the ability to balance each other but it will not be easy, as the traits that they share may easily be overshadowed by their drastically different way of going about things, even if it's about something they have in common. Luckily, neither Virgo or Gemini is lazy and it can definitely be done and might become a good learning process for both.
1 Trouble: Pisces And Aries
The likelihood of you as a Pisces parent and your Aries child ever agreeing on how to do things is slim to none. Pisces, the most intuitive of all the water signs, functions with a heightened sense of emotion and a capacity to read others with no issues whatsoever. An Aries child, true to the sign of the ram, is boisterous and occasionally confrontational where Pisces will go with the flow as the fish traditionally does. A quality your child will like is the ability to tread lightly, using first empathy before their own personal feelings, and as a Pisces, you may not be used to this competitive nature and strong nature. However, Pisces, you are strong in the influence department and this is what will allow you to connect with your headstrong child. As they mature and get older, their confidence will blossom into traits that will make them unstoppable in a career, but during the years where they're still growing, they need you to provide stability. Your ease for adjusting to any situation will come in handy with a somewhat unpredictable Aries child and from you, they'll pick up on subtle intuition and learn to listen before they act or speak. It will take a lot of work on your end, but with your help, they have the potential to be successful in anything they put their minds to.
