Astrology is so much fun. There is a lot more to astrology than reading your daily, weekly, or monthly horoscope in the newspaper or elsewhere online. That also means, our astrology forecast depends on a lot more than just your sun sign alone. That is because your sun sign only makes up a fraction of who you are as a whole.
You also have to consider your moon sign, which is the sign that represents your emotional response to stimuli. You also have your rising sign to consider as well. That represents how you view life and how others view you. Consider your rising sign the same thing as your own mask.
However, both the sun and moon sign are significant parts of your horoscope. Your sun sign does represent yourself as a whole, but your moon sign depends on how you respond to anything emotionally. Have you thought about how being a parent has changed you based on your own sign? You probably have but likely did not take your moon sign’s nature into consideration.
Are you expecting, and are you worried about how your partner will be after the baby is born? Or are you the dad-to-be and are you wondering how parenthood will change you? Let's see how dads end up changing after the baby is born based on their sun and moon signs!
24 Aries Sun Dad - Only The Best For His Baby
Aries is the first sign, and it is a fire sign. Those who have a sun in Aries are known to be the ultimate go-getters, and they go after what they want. However, they are lacking in the patience department. According to Popsugar, dads that have an Aries sun will be very committed to making sure that his baby will get the very best.
However, even though he would want his baby to be breastfed because it is really the best- he can't force mom to do it if she chooses not to or can't. Therefore, he would make an effort to find the best formula for the baby. The one thing that could get him into trouble is the fact that his patience may be thin. And that is the nature of the sign.
23 Aries Moon Dad - Makes Rash Decisions, Especially About Money
We already know that the characteristics of Aries are impulsivity and going after what is important. And, if dad has an Aries Moon, then he will definitely be prone to making rash decisions. According to Astrology Club, anyone with an Aries Moon will definitely act without thinking things through.
Therefore, if dad sees a toy or a product that he thinks will be good for the baby, he will without any hesitation buy it because it's there. He won't get the mom's opinion, he will just spend the money at the drop of a hat. These dads that have an Aries moon will need to learn how to control their money-spending urges because before they know it- not only will their bank accounts take a hit but there will be too many items cluttering up the home which won't end up getting used at the end.
22 Taurus Sun Dad - The Patient One
Taurus is the second sign, and is an earth sign. The main characteristics of Taurus are stability, patience, and a love for material things and food- but can be incredibly stubborn. According to Popsugar, Taurean dads will end up finding themselves incredibly patient with their babies and will be the ones to stay up all night to soothe them if necessary.
These dads may not even realize that they had it in themselves to be patient, but once their babies arrive, they end up making that discovery along the way of his parenting journey.
21 Taurus Moon Dad - Set In His Ways But Values Everything
Taurus, as it has already been discussed, is a sign that represents stability, the appreciation of value as well as stubbornness. And, according to Astrology Club, dad with a Taurus moon will most definitely not be spending his money for an item that he thinks could be good for the baby. He will evaluate the need for it first, and he will have an urge to save his money, especially after seeing how costly caring for a baby really can be.
However, the Taurus moon dad will also be set in his ways, even more, once the baby is born. There is no schedule that can be set with a newborn, so he will end up setting his own routine in order to give him comfort such as having a chicken dinner every Monday, a steak dinner every Tuesday, and so on. And, once the baby is old enough where a schedule and a routine can be set, he will definitely stick to it like glue.
20 Gemini Sun Dad - Unpredictable Moods
Gemini is the third sign, and it is an air sign. Those who have a sun in Gemini are known to be quite communicative, like to stay busy, are very curious but can blow hot and cold within the same moment. According to Popsugar, Gemini sun dads can find themselves warm and caring one moment and will end up switching personalities and can get into a bad mood and won't want to be bothered with anything the next.
That is likely because the new responsibilities with a newborn will certainly have that kind of effect on him. He will be wanting to cuddle with the newborn one moment, but the next he will hand the baby to mom and end up needing to do his own thing like working in the garage- and he won't be welcoming interruptions either unless it is an emergency.
19 Gemini Moon Dad - Wants The Baby To Talk Right Now!
As it was already said, Gemini is the sign that rules communication. Therefore, according to Astrology Club, those who have a Gemini Moon will have a need for communication and to be kept stimulated. That is why you will expect to see the dad with a Gemini moon be excited about the day that his baby ends up talking.
A Gemini moon dad will always jump at the chance to read a bedtime story to his baby, and will even teach his baby basic things that kids would learn in kindergarten as well. He does that to encourage communication since that is so important to him.
18 Cancer Sun Dad - He’ll Cry When The Baby Cries
Cancer is the fourth sign, and it is the first water sign as well. Those who have a Cancer sun are known to be nurturers, and that is the most maternal sign of the horoscopes. According to Popsugar, Cancer dads will find themselves so emotional that they will cry at the drop of a hat.
Therefore, the cry it out method will not work with this dad in the picture. He won't be able to handle the sound of his baby's sobs. If he did not display so much emotion before having his baby, it's surely displaying all of it now.
17 Cancer Moon Dad - The Family’s Needs Must Be Met
Cancer is a family-oriented sign, and this is why those who have either a sun or moon in Cancer will be very involved with anything that is family-related. According to Astrology Club, those who have a Cancer moon will be doing everything possible to make sure that the needs of their families are met.
That means, Cancer moon dads will be sure that they are providing enough for not just his baby, but for the entire family. He will look for ways to grow money by looking for great ways to invest. He may even look for a better paying job if possible. He will want his family to have more than enough to live on especially once the baby is born.
16 Leo Sun Dad - Stubborn But Childlike
Leo is the fifth sign, and the second fire sign. Those who have a sun in Leo are known to be playful and childlike, but can be very stubborn and can demand attention. According to Popsugar, dads with a Leo sun will get back in touch with their childlike and playful side with the baby. He will be the one pretending an airplane is flying while feeding his little one baby food.
However, he will also be quite set in his ways and show the same type of stubbornness that a Taurean dad may show, and after all, Leo is a fixed sign so it is not a surprise.
15 Leo Moon Dads - Craves Luxury
Leo is the king or queen of all, and it would definitely not be a surprise that anyone with a sun or moon in Leo would be attracted to anything regal. According to Astrology Club, those who have a Leo moon will crave luxury. That means dads with a Leo moon will want to get the top-notch qualities for his baby. He will want to get the most prestigious brands of clothing for the baby, as well as a baby swing and highchair with all of the bells and whistles.
You can only imagine the type of saucer dad would want to get for his baby as well. And, once the kids become older and less prone to spilling stuff, he will be looking forward to the day when he can buy that luxurious rug that would look fantastic in the living room.
14 Virgo Sun Dad - Stress Levels Will Go Up
Virgo is the sixth sign, and is an earth sign. Those who have a sun in Virgo are known to have a good work ethic and are also known to be health conscious. They also are incredibly analytical, have an obsessive nature, and can be quite neurotic. According to Popsugar, Virgo dads are extremely devoted to their kids but the issue is, they are too devoted. So devoted to the point that he will stress out over minor things.
He will make a big deal of the possibility of the baby being overfed, and he'll also nitpick over a minor diaper rash, and will harp on it for hours. He will end up stressing himself out more than necessary over things that are not overly serious. That will only end up creating more stress among the family as well.
13 Virgo Moon Dad - Extremely Thorough And Organized
One characteristic of Virgo is the desire for excellence, or even, dare I say- perfection. And, according to Astrology Club, those who have Virgo moons are extremely thorough and methodical.

He will want to make sure that his baby eats organic baby food, and will want to make sure that any clothing purchased for the baby is made of high-quality fabric so that the clothing lasts and is comfortable.
The same will go for whenever mom wants to enroll her baby into a program. Dad will want to make sure if the baby will really benefit from it because these programs cost money. If he looks into every aspect of the program, and if he doesn't feel the baby will really grow from it, he won't want money spent on it which could cause him and mom to get into a fighting match.
12 Libra Sun Dad - Fairness Is Everything
Libra is the seventh sign, and is an air sign. Those who have a sun in Libra are all about balance, fairness, and have an appreciation for beauty. However, they are also notorious for not being able to make a decision. According to Popsugar, Libra sun dads will find themselves as being fair when it comes to raising their kids. He will not show any kind of favoritism and will make sure that his kids will always make up with one another after an argument.
However, the Libra sun dad that is a new dad will not think that far ahead yet. In fact, don't count on him to make any decisions in regards to the baby. That will be left for mom to make- and if she has a Libra sun, then both parents will be asking for advice everywhere about anything to do with the baby.
11 Libra Moon Dad - Will Treat His Baby Like An Equal
Libra is all about balance and fairness. And, according to Astrology Club, those who have a Libra moon will be inclined to treat everyone like they are equal to everyone else- regardless of their age.

He won't talk baby talk, he will talk to his baby, again; like a peer.
This will be awkward for the child at a young age, but eventually, it will be a moot point. However, will the child really see their dad like a parent or a peer in the end?

If the baby is not reaching a milestone or has reached it sooner than expected, he will research on possibilities for why that could be an issue. Because Scorpios are secretive in nature, if he is concerned about his baby's development, he won't share his worries with his girlfriend or wife. He will call the pediatrician on his own and make an appointment without her knowing. That is just the nature of the sign.
