From protective parent to laid back Earth mother, every mom’s got her approach to the art of mothering. Astrology can give you insight on your own personal nurturing style. Read your Sun sign description below to learn more about how you most like to care for your children.

Aries
You’re active, on the go and just a little competitive as a mom, beaming with motherly pride when you’re kid walks and talks ahead of schedule. Keeping up with the high energy of your child is no problem for you as you’re in constant motion as a matter of habit.

Taurus
As the quintessential Earth mother, you provide a stable and nurturing environment for your child. Though your stubborn nature may sometimes lead to a battle of wills, for the most part you provide an oasis of calm and comfort for your child.

Gemini
Busy and versatile, you have no problem with the multi-tasking nature of motherhood. Though you can’t wait until your child starts talking, you’re content to try non-verbal communication until that happy day arrives.

Cancer

Your sign is the sign of mothers and mothering, so you have an innate instinct for nurturing. You are able to provide your children with a steady diet of care and tenderness. As long as you don’t get too clingy as they get older, you will maintain your reputation as the ideal mom.

Leo
You are the kind of mom who remembers what it’s like to be a child and know how to awaken your children’s natural creativity and playfulness. Your pride in your children is substantial and you want them to strive to be their best. Try to moderate any “stage-mother” tendencies you might have, as this will only create unnecessary drama.

Virgo
As an Earth sign, you know how to make sure your children are healthy, well fed and comfortable. It’s also important to you that they develop an interest in being of service or helping other people. Though you can sometimes be a little critical, you want nothing more than to help your children succeed.

Libra
You strive to be a fair and balanced mother, and are able to create a beautiful and soothing environment for your children to grow up in. Though you sometimes try too hard to keep the peace, you are teaching your children to always look at both sides of the story.

Sagittarius
As a mother, one of your top priorities is education, so you are constantly exposing your children to new ideas, places and people. You know how to have a good time with your kids and love to take them on adventures. If you can integrate stability into the mix, this will help to keep them balanced and grounded.

Capricorn
You have long-term goals for your children and are interested in helping them build secure foundations in their lives that will last for awhile. You are able to teach them the values of hard work and patience, which will serve them as they get older. Though you may not share your feelings very often to your kids, this does not mean that you don’t care deeply about them.

Aquarius
You have a quirky and offbeat mothering style and are able to approach your children as individuals. You may especially thrive as a mother when they reach adolescence, since this is an age that you particularly understand. Though you may be an eccentric mother, you are always fun and interesting.

Pisces
You have an intuitive approach to mothering and seem to know exactly what your children are feeling. Since it’s important for you to periodically have time to escape, you may sometimes get overwhelmed by too much activity and need to take a time out from your responsibilities.
