Our zodiac signs say a lot about us but have you ever considered what your sign might say about your mothering skills? While there is no set way to parent a child, mothers come in all shapes and sizes.

Below I am going to go over each zodiac sign and what kind of mothers usually fall into each one. While you might not think much about the traits that make up your sign you should. While none of the signs are what you’d call bad mothers, some of them are better than the others in their own ways.


The Aries mother pushes her children to work hard in the same ways that she does. She doesn’t spend as much time on them and doesn’t focus much on their emotional side. She wants to give them the best of everything but everything in her eyes is not everything in the real world.


The Taurus mother has a short temper and is often overreacting to things that don’t really matter. She tries to help bring out the best in her children but also sometimes forgets to let them be themselves. As a mother, the Taurus is able to really communicate with her kids on a level some mothers cannot. That being said, they do try hard not to disappoint which causes a bit of disconnect.


The Gemini mother is a bit overbearing. She wants to be her children’s best friend but only when it is convenient for her. This causes a bit of confusion and makes it hard for them to talk to her sometimes. However, the Gemini is easily one of the funniest moms around.


The Cancer mother is too caring. She waits on her children hand and foot. She tends to coddle them to the point where they are a bit overly needy towards her and sometimes not in a good way. While her kids love that they can tell her anything they rarely let her in emotionally because she is overly sheltering.


The Leo mother tends to try and live out her dreams through her children. She makes them into her friend rather than her offspring and ensures that they are following the path she wishes she could have. This makes them lose sight of who they are and can be a bit tricky. As a Leo mother, it is important to remember that children are not replicas of ourselves.


The Virgo mother is a bit confusing. She might respond badly to things you think she would respond well too and vice versa. She is always making sure her children are striving for the best and makes sure to correct them when they’ve messed up. While this is not necessarily bad, it can get to a point where the child feels inadequate. As a mother finding balance in that is important.


The Libra mother is one that does not rush things. She is very patient and always makes sure to spend time with her children. She might not be able to control them as well as some of the other signs but she tries. Depending on how much of a pushover she is, she might be someone who struggles to keep them in check.


The Scorpio mother is a bit too dedicated. She is always putting her family before everything else and letting self-care fall through the cracks. She needs to give herself time to rest but tends to refuse to do so. As a parent, she feels like it is her responsibility to be there no matter what and while it is, it is also important that she can still relax on occasion.


The Sagittarius mother is very fun. She goes out of her way to make sure her children are able to do all the things during their younger years that she didn’t get the chance to do. She loves going on adventures with her little monsters but also doesn’t necessarily discipline them as much as she should.


The Capricorn mother is a mother that likes to work hard and give her children all she can. She doesn’t exactly go out and have family fun but she does like to see her babies smiling. She is what you might consider being the average mother and there is nothing wrong with that.


The Aquarius mother is the kind of mother that gets along with everyone. She doesn’t bother with the small stuff and knows that allowing her children to actually be children is important. She isn’t overly strict or too lenient. She is a mom that gives you chores but lets you take a day off when you need one. I guess you could call her the kind of mom that gets messy with you instead of the one that watches from the side.


The Pisces mother is a mother that pushes her children to be creative. She has fun with them but also cultivates something within them. She makes sure that they have a good time setting the clock for their future. This kind of mom is the one that will be the most positive when it comes to motivating her offspring.
