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.
“Live and let live” could be your motto, and your kids will be free spirits thanks to your relaxed influence. You couldn’t care less if they crayon a “mural” on their bedroom wall in fact, it will probably just amuse you. As long as they don’t destroy the tastefully appointed areas where you entertain guests, it’s all good. Libra is ruled by beauty-loving Venus, and you encourage your kids to dabble in the arts.
A picture says a thousand words, and family albums are especially important to Libras. You love photography, and you’re quick to whip out the camera to catch your kids’ adorable, frame-worthy moments. And what’s more fun for a stylish sign like yours than picking out the perfect outfit and posing your kids for yet another portrait? They could learn to say “cheese” before they even say “Mommy!”
Libra is the sign of companionship, and your children will be your miniature sidekicks. You’ll rock matching mommy-daughter outfits (probably by a trendy designer), or take yoga class together. You’re equal parts mom and friend, which your children will mostly appreciate. The relaxed, breezy Libra attitude makes it easy for them to be themselves at times, perhaps a little too easy. Discipline isn’t your strong suit. But whoever said, “Spare the rod and [you’ll] spoil the child” wasn’t your kind of person anyway. You’re a lover, not a fighter. And you know what? That’s OK!
Earth to Mommy! You’re the zodiac’s original space cadet at times. You just get so caught up in the beauty of a moment, or lost in a conversation, that you lose track of what’s going on. Just make sure your kid doesn’t wander off while you’re browsing at a boutique or gabbing on your cell phone! Your attention, please it’s OK to play the “heavy” sometimes. Even if you like to keep things beautiful and conflict-free, your kids do need you to set boundaries for them.
Consistency will be a challenge for you, since you hate routines and being rushed. Following a feeding and sleeping schedule could be a drag. You’d rather just strap Junior into a Snugli and let him snooze while you shop the sample sales. An easygoing kid will travel well with your temperament, but if that’s not what you get, you’ll have to be more structured especially during the early years. Of course, you’re adept at using your charms, so you could woo your partner into handling those 3 am bottle-feedings and diaper changes!
Libra, you’re the sign of the scales, and if you have more than one kid, you’ll need to balance how you spread out your attention. You could accidentally play your kids against each other, leaving them vying to be Mommy’s favorite. Or you might lean too heavily on your children at times. Keep your own life in balance and you’ll have a much easier time juggling the various demands of parenting.
