The core of your child's identity is tied to their Sun sign. There are, of course, other planets in their birth chart, but these sometimes act as distractions. It's always important to understand why, for example, your mini-Aries is uncharacteristically timid, or your little Pisces is an unexpected warrior. They simply need to be coaxed back to their center!
The Ram is designed to be a winner in whatever arena they operate, so you'll need to find the one thing your Aries child is good at. This may take some searching, but find it and they're sure to flourish!
The Bull needs to be tuned in to both their body and five senses, as well as the material world. If there's a whirlwind of chaos around them, they won't cope well. Create a safe area of security where they can root themselves.
Gemini is adaptable -- so much so that they may fit in too well with all that's going on around them. Deep inside they like to walk on the wild side, so they need a hint of adventure to bring spark to their life. If you insist on too much sameness, they're bound to sink into a rut.
The Crab is not always fond of the rough-and-tumble life outside home. If they seem indifferent and shut down emotionally, they're not paying attention to what matters most to them -- their feelings. Love and protect them to lure them back to their soft center.
The Lion was not designed to be a wallflower! They need to glow in the spotlight. However, their confidence is fragile, so a meek Leo may have been squashed too hard at one point. Reverse this trend by cajoling them into doing whatever brings them approval and applause.
Virgo is supposedly tidy, but these kids can often be chaotic. They prosper when there's organization in their lives and everything is in its right place. They'll adapt to almost anything, but they need to re-center themselves periodically to find their way in the world.
Libra dislikes messes and needs approval. So if your mini-Libra is an unwashed rebel, they're clearly out of step with themselves. Spruce up their self-esteem and they'll step out much happier ... and their manners will improve in a flash!
This is an intense sign, so if your little Scorpion skids across the surface of life, you should know they're off-track. Like most water signs, they can shut right down if threatened, so you'll need to gain their trust before they'll allow you to pull them out of their depths.
The Archer is brave to the point of foolhardiness. If they cling to your apron strings, they're not being themselves. They need to be lured into sports and adventure games to re-light their inner spark.
The Goat can seem positively geriatric when young -- overly serious and responsible. But if they're idle, they need to be brought back to their center where they can be earthily indulgent, but still dutiful. Push them to find meaningful ambitions.
Aquarians can either be mavericks or overly serious Saturn types. Whichever camp yours falls into, they need to be their own person. If they're too compliant, they're off-base, so give them permission to be rebels. Allow them to push boundaries -- that's what they're born to do.
Pisces can be bold, big fish or ... timid, little fish. Whichever your child may be, they're built to glide through life by finding meaning in their feelings, not crashing into arguments. Be sure to smooth down their rough edges, nurture their sensitivities and never laugh at their dreams.
