Libra (September 23-October 22)
Libras are live-and-let-live-kind of people and this transfers to their parenting methods as well. They will let their children learn from their own mistakes instead of interfering in their decisions. Basically, they’re pretty chill mothers. This, however, doesn’t mean they don’t care about their kids. On the contrary, the liberty of making decisions on their own will enable their children to grow into more responsible adults.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Scorpios are the cool moms. Always up to date with the latest trends and fads. Their kids are bound to learn all about fashion and having their own sense of style from them. However, Scorpios are also bound to be overprotective and apprehensive.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
Sagittarii are adventurous and spontaneous and full of energy which will undoubtedly be passed down to their kids. Motherhood won’t stop them from exploring and travelling. Their enthusiasm is simply infectious! Their children will always see them as a friend instead of an authority figure which will make this relationship much easier and everlasting.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Capricorns are the most responsible and caring people, which is why motherhood comes so easily to them. The best parenting methods come naturally to them, and they make every opportunity into a teachable moment for their little ones. They are able to engage in all of their children’s activities without tiring, and they enjoy this role so much that they are even likely to give up their jobs to be stay-at-home moms.
Aquarius (January 20 to February 18)
Aquarii have excellent time management skills which will enable them to easily balance a family life and a career. They will be more than capable of meeting both their office deadlines and making it to their children’s school events. They are determined and constantly multitasking, but they need to remember to set some time aside for themselves. Everyone need to take a break from time to time.
Pisces (February 19 to March 20)
Pieces are known to put their children on a pedestal. Their natural empathy translates into unconditional love for their kids and they can immediately identify when there’s something troubling the little ones. The constant adoration will ensure a high sense of self-worth when the kids are all grown-up.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Aries like to get involved in every single aspect of their children’s lives. They will never let anyone else look after their kids since this would mean relinquishing their own involvement in their young ones’ affairs. But this is treading on thin ice: they may end up emotionally smothering them with their affections, which is why it’s important to remember to leave the children some breathing space.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Taurii may appear very strict and uncompromising, but their only motivation is their children’s best interest. Their approache is very methodical and characterised by a sense of stability.

They will also know that they will always be able to rely on their parents for support.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Gemini are the fun moms. They always get along well with their kids and with their conversational skills they teach the children how to communicate their own needs and to stand up for themselves.

When necessary, they know how to be authoritative and make the children listen.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Cancers are just too loving. They will undoubtedly smother their children with their affection and care. Motherhood for them is the best outlet for all that love that overwhelms their hearts – there’s no better use for it than raising children. Cancers will always try to be their kids’ best friends.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
Leos are known for their pride. They will always try to be perceived as role models for their children, as someone the kids look up to and are inspired by.
