How to Strengthen Your Relationship with Dad
If you want to grow closer to your father, it’s important to figure out what makes him tick. Explore his astrological Sun sign and discover how you can develop a strong, satisfying relationship.

Aries
The Aries dad does best when he is active, so try spending time with your dad while exercising or attend a sporting event together. These fiery fathers are brave and courageous, so listen to them talk about past victories, as they love to share stories of their success.

Taurus
Traditional and stable, the Taurus dad probably always has time for you. Since he enjoys silence more than conversation, try to spend time with him in activities like gardening or yard work. This earthy father also loves to eat, so invite him over for a dinner of his favorite comfort foods.

Gemini
Mercurial and active, the Gemini father probably has lots of questions for you. You can strengthen your relationship by sharing new ideas with him. Since he loves to learn, take him to a lecture or workshop on a topic you’re both interested in.

Cancer
The homey Cancer dad loves nothing more than to share a good meal with you. He probably has a storehouse of memories and family stories, so get him talking about the past and your childhood. This watery dad also wants to know what you’re feeling, so don’t be afraid to share.

Leo
The star of the show, Leo fathers enjoy entertaining their offspring. Give your dad plenty of opportunity to showcase his talents and he’ll be beaming in no time. This generous parent also wants to know about your successes, so he can brag about them to the world.

The Virgo father wants to be of service, so let him know how he can help you and then let him actually help. Since it can be hard for him to relax, try to engage him in physically active activities like walking, which will assist him in releasing stress in a positive way.

Libra
Artsy Libran fathers love to share cultural experiences with you such as museums, art galleries or concerts. They may also enjoy a shopping trip more than most men, since they have a good eye for color and design. They are great to go to for relationship advice, since they are experts on how to get along with others.

Scorpio
Your Scorpio dad is a great problem solver and always seems to be able to see the hidden factors in any situation. Don’t be afraid to talk about the bigger issues, as this water sign likes to dig deep and isn’t afraid of the shadow side of life. Though your Scorpio father may not reveal too many of his secrets, he can offer you important insights.

Sagittarius
Prepare for an adventure when you hang out with your Sagittarius father. This dad loves to teach you about the world and introduce you to new experiences. Plan a day trip or a longer trek to some exciting destination. Since this dad loves to laugh, a comedy club or funny movie is another great activity to share with him.

Capricorn
The Capricorn father always has work on his mind and wants to feel like he is making progress towards his goals. Ask him about where he wants to be 10 years in the future and he’ll probably have lots to share. A project that the two of you can work on side by side is another way to spend time with this busy dad.

Aquarius
Your quirky Aquarian dad will probably want to spend time with you in the company of friends or a group. This community-oriented guy also loves to help others, so spend time with him engaged in a service project or strategizing a plan to help the larger collective.

Pisces
Gentle Pisces dads love spending time in nature, so set aside some time for a hike or a trip to the beach. The sign of the fish enjoys music as well, so an outdoor concert or musical event can be another great way to share some quality time with your Pisces pop.
