What your star sign says about your mothering style

Your star sign can affect all areas of your life, including the way you nurture and express your love for others.

Whether you're a mum to human babies or furbabies, astrologer Lisa Stardust breaks down how astrology can influence your mothering-style.

Aries: March 21 - April 19

Known for their ambitious nature, Aries excel at every task presented to them and parenting is no different. The Aries mother instils strong discipline in her children by letting them find their own voice and independent thoughts.

Taurus: April 20 - May 20

The Taurus mum is nice as pie and nurturing to her kin, but she's also got a tough and rigid side. As the budgeter of family finances, the mama bull wrestles between overindulging her children and enforcing hard work ethics in them, so her calves know the value of a dollar.

Gemini: May 21 - June 20

Children of Gemini are blessed with having two mums: One may be sweet as a kitten, while the other can be fun and original, perhaps even replacing their child’s lunchtime snack with a tiara. The Gemini mother might have a dualistic nature, but there is never a lack of fun in her children's lives.

Cancer: June 21 - July 22

The natural mother of the zodiac, Cancer is ruled by the Moon, making her the ultimate maternal sign. Mummy crabs are tough as nails to outsiders who criticise their children and dedicated to being the perfect mothers. Balancing work and family can be a challenge, but Cancer mothers love to provide and be the caretakers of their family.

Leo: July 23 - August 22

Ferociously protecting her cubs comes naturally to this Lioness. Dramatically overacting to minor issues may cause tensions, but the warmth, love and loyalty these jungle queens have for their cubs conquers all.

Virgo: August 23 - September 22

No parent is ever more organised than the Virgo mum. Planning ahead and keeping stock of all her children’s favourite foods and snacks make her an ideal mother - she'll never let the cabinets run dry in case of an emergency.

Libra: September 23 - October 22

The Libra mum does well at balancing her children’s personalities. She does tend to yell but stops once she sees the sadness in her children’s eyes. Rewarding her children’s merits with sweets and gifts warms the Libra mum’s heart.

Scorpio: October 23 - November 21

The Scorpio mum is the ultimate mumager! Organising schedules and play dates is of the utmost importance to her. The moment her baby arrived, the Scorpion transformed into full-on mum mode. Putting her children's needs before her own, cooking meals from scratch and singing lullabies every night is how the Scorpio mother shows her undying love to her children.

Sagittarius: November 22 - December 21

The Sadge mum is brutally honest, sometimes to a fault. While the archer mother may sling her arrows at her children, it’s never out of disrespect and only due to her never-ending honesty. Live and let live is the motto of the Sagittarius mother - there's no use crying over spilt milk. Embracing jovial familial times will enhance her buoyant personality.

Capricorn: December 22 - January 19

The loyal sea-goat may seem to be a little austere during early childhood development. However, it’s only because she is admiring her children from a distance. The Capricorn mum takes great pride in her children’s wins and happiness and is always defending and loyally standing by her kid's choices.

Aquarius: January 20 to February 18

Quirky tendencies may make her the odd mum out, but that's the perfect role for the Aquarius mother, who rebels against authority. Always looking for new ways to improve herself, the Aquarius mum may work on innovative ways to improve the relationship with her kin.

Pisces: February 19 to March 20

Anxieties may cause Pisces mothers to worry about their fingerlings. Over-parenting can cause smothering, but it’s always meant with love. The Pisces mum can take a break with her children through the arts, escape reality through their mutual love of music. Protective by nature, Pisces always ensures her babies are safe before looking after her own safety.
