Can You Be a Good Parent ... and a Good Spouse?

Can You Be a Good Parent ... and a Good Spouse?
Do you feel pulled in two directions by your child and spouse? Being both a parent and a lover can sometimes seem like one demand too many. And while some signs have their own ingenious ways of coping, others find it more difficult.

The two signs with a way of deleting the problem altogether are Cancer and Aquarius. Cancer is family-oriented to begin with, and their other half will find themselves placed firmly with the rest of the family. Aquarius, meanwhile, turns everyone -- partners included -- into friends. They love loose arrangements without too many ties, so in time, lovers become pals and part of the wider network.

Sagittarius, Gemini and Aries take the let's-all-be-friends approach with all ages, so they find themselves never really having to change gears between their dual roles as parent and partner.

Libra and Scorpio prefer to have another half in their lives. They're great for one-to-one contact with whomever's in front of them, but they find it less easy to engage in group connections. Scorpio finds it especially tricky to flip from one role to another very quickly.

Leo is a terrific family sign. Known as the sign of the burning heart, these folks can handle domestic relations of all forms without too much strain -- with the understanding that they need to be adored and appreciated by all!

Capricorn easily recognizes the well-defined roles and pecking orders that are such a part of life. Their children definitely fit into a junior category, while partners assume quite a different function. Indeed, the Goat may not always be passionate, but they can fulfill both roles well.

Taurus needs a hug and a cuddle to keep them happy, so kids to them are pure heaven -- and so is their life partner. They love to indulge themselves and everyone around, so they're never short of appreciation. Still, they prefer it when life runs their way, so they'll always make quality time for the kids ... and even better quality time with their spouse.

Virgo has a Cancerian habit of turning spouses into just one more thing to worry about -- like their kids. If they don't watch out, they can pull away from their partner since they're so busy rushing around instead of just simply being there sometimes. If they can maintain a balance between their practical streak and earthy passions, they can manage both roles admirably.

Finally, Pisces will yearn for romantic candlelit dinners while they're knee-deep in toys and diapers. But after a day of picking up after their kids and cleaning mud off the carpet, they may find it difficult to get themselves into smooching mode. In fact, they'll likely need to be wined and dined -- and allowed to relax -- before they can focus on the love of their life.
