Your Baby's Eating Habits ... by Moon Sign

Your Baby's Eating Habits ... by Moon Sign
You can spend half your life building a career, learning and becoming a better person. And yet, the challenge of feeding a baby his or her first solid foods can reduce even the most successful, intelligent, and patient among us into a screaming ball of frustration.

In personal birth charts, the Moon represents a person's basic emotional and physical responses, so it's no surprise that, quite often, babies act much more like their Moon sign than their Sun sign. Just like your own eating habits, those of an infant are strongly influenced by the sign placement of their natal Moon. Learning that placement and working with it (rather than against it) can go a long way toward making meal times more smooth -- for both yourself and your baby.

Fire Moon: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
You'd think these little gaffers would be too tired after asserting their wills all night long -- or as you like to put it, "not sleeping" -- to put up a fight about eating their creamed spinach. But babies with a Fire Moon sign can be awfully energetic. Try making them laugh and they're more likely to play along at mealtime. Often, a solid round of playing or exercise will make the difference when it comes to getting a little cooperation out of them.

Earth Moon: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn

Earth Moon sign babies can be highly emotional about their eating. If they're upset or annoyed by something, you might want to just give up for a while. These tykes tend to be fond of sweeter foods, or those that are higher in fat and starch content. Taurus Moon babies respond well to physical affection, so lots of cuddles after downing the dreaded strained peas will probably serve both of you well. Virgo Moon babies tend to be good about eating their vegetables, and if a Capricorn Moon baby wants to make it known they won't eat something, then it's time to try a different tack and switch to something else!

Air Moon: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
Babies with an Air Moon sign are bright and perky creatures, something that can often make them charming and entertaining. The problem you're most likely to encounter with them at mealtime is how they're too easily distracted to be sat down and fed in one continuous session. Try a spoonful or two, then get up and do something else; then another couple of spoonfuls, then wander away again, and so on. Gemini Moon babies respond well to being entertained, while Libra Moons like being praised. Aquarius Moons prefer to do it for themselves -- so let them (as much as possible).

Water Moon: Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces
Water Moon babies are usually more into their own emotional state than those of others, so feeding one can be a hit-or-miss affair, depending on their current environment. Cancer Moon babies are usually the first to show signs of being emotional eaters, so imparting a certain sense of safe routine -- like always using the exact same spoon, for example -- can be a tremendous help. Also be aware that such babies might be difficult to feed in unfamiliar settings. Scorpio Moons are often slow but steady, so don't be surprised if they analyze every spoonful. And Pisces Moon babies are basically impossible to feed if something is annoying them.

Keep in mind that, no matter what, babies do have a certain degree of wisdom as to what they really need. You may be the one in charge, but a baby possesses impulses directly related to their physical needs, and these occur on a level they couldn't quite describe -- even if they were able to talk!
