Parenting goes beyond blood
ties. Biological parents often share
powerful bonds with their children. However, being able to
physically reproduce does not necessarily impart a
person with competent parenting skills.
ARIES or Mars gives children a lot of
freedom. It enjoys playing with them, not just sending them out to play.
But if it’s an aggressive disciplinarian, it loses credibility with
offspring by not guiding them patiently and respectfully.
TAURUS or Venus provides materially for its
children, including music or art. It also imparts values so its children
understand themselves in the context of their society.
GEMINI or Mercury considers education
paramount, not just for future employment options, but for the value of
having a cultivated mind. It is flexible and willing to negotiate and
CANCER or the moon considers emotional
bonding a priority. Home-cooked meals are worth the effort. Sometimes the
parent cultivates dependency in, or on the child.
LEO or the sun wants the child to have
healthy self-esteem and confidence. Dancing lessons, theatre and sports
VIRGO wants the child to be organized,
orderly and reserved. Attuned to details, it may come across as a critical
perfectionist. Providing pets will teach children unconditional love.
LIBRA teaches its children to be fair,
refined, cultured and gracious to others. It imparts an essential attitude
of equality, so that offspring don’t hold themselves above or below
SCORPIO or Pluto gets life insurance as soon
as a baby is born, making sure it will be well provided for. It has strong
psychic bonds. It must practice discretion about sexuality.
SAGITTARIUS or Jupiter wants to ensure their
children have a spiritual path to give meaning to their lives beyond
mundane existence. They plan ahead for college education, offer world
travel and encourage athletics.
CAPRICORN or Saturn has a strong sense of
responsibility for its children, and teaches them to be responsible for
themselves. Sometimes coming across as stern, it imparts rules and
regulations to teach children.
AQUARIUS or Uranus governs adoptions and
cultures other than one’s own. Love
goes beyond the conventional ego-projection of biological
PISCES or Neptune has effortless psychic
bonds. If it makes self-indulgence through intoxicants a priority over the
children, it will leave them feeling emotionally abandoned. Often
interested in “saving” the underdog, it may encourage children to help
alleviate world suffering.
