Discover your sign's strengths and challenges as a mother.
Your astrological sign reveals the strengths and challenges you face as a mother. Use this insight to create harmonious family relationships.
Gemini, you’re an eternal child, always curious and exploring. You’ve got more energy in your pinkie than an entire playground at recess. Your kids will probably be running after you!
Gemini is the sign of variety, and you need plenty of it. If you’re not raising a brood in your own unconventional style, you could traipse around town with your pint-sized posse in tow. Your unofficial motto: “Have stroller, will travel!” You’re the kind of mom who’s back to work a week after giving birth. You’ll multitask away while your little one snoozes in a portable crib or does his homework in your office.
Gemini rules the hands, and you tend to be crafty. You’ll engage your kids in all kinds of fun activities tie-dying, finger painting, drawing, sewing, knitting, building. Encouraging their development is more important to you than cooing over their gagas and goo-goos. Baby talk is not your thing. You see your kids as capable human beings, and your job is to teach them everything you know. You take pride in your creativity and will pass this along to your children. You’re the sign of the teacher, so whatever your talent, you love to share it with your kids. And while you may swing through the drive-through for a Happy Meal now and then, many Gemini moms love to eat and prepare organic, healthy food.
The world could learn a few things about tolerance from your nontraditional style. Like Gemini Heidi Klum, you might have kids with a man from another culture or country. Just because you’re the sign of the Twins doesn’t mean you want to clone yourself! Like Angelina, you could have your own mini United Nations. Being “different” is good, as far as you’re concerned, and you’ll encourage individuality in your kids. You might even give them unusual names or interesting life experiences to make sure they never fade into the crowd.
Your spontaneous nature is refreshing, but too much of a good thing could throw your kids off balance. Change in frequent doses can upset your kids’ sense of security or prevent them from growing socially. Sometimes, consistency is what’s needed, and you may have to work a little harder to develop it. You change your mind so often, going through hobbies (and sometimes people) like water.
Because your mind moves fast, you tend to forget what you said last week, and you may accidentally contradict yourself. If you don’t say what you mean and mean what you say, your children could grow wary and distrustful. Maintain your children’s respect by sticking to a consistent message, then modeling that behavior. They learn from your example good and bad! Try to come up with a few family rules (bonus if you and your kids design them together), then have those crayoned and posted on the fridge. Gemini rules communication, and Mama, you love to talk. Don’t let the sound of your own voice get so sweet to your ears that you forget to listen too. If you’re always lecturing or prattling on, your kids could tune you out. Practice the fine art of listening and talking in equal doses. Take a breath between stories and check in with them.
Gemini, you value common sense and logic, and have little tolerance for other people’s foolishness. However, you could be a bit harsh or judgmental when your kids need sensitivity. “I told you so” is one Gemini favorite to eject from your personal phrasebook, along with “I knew it” or “You should have listened to me.” This will only alienate your children and make them feel unsafe opening up. You’re the sign of the Twins, so use the technique of mirroring. In other words, when your child confides in you, rather than leap into problem-solving mode, simply reflect back her feelings. Step into your kids’ shoes and you’ll quickly connect with your own natural compassion, bringing you closer together.
