Is Your Sign Compatible with Your Child’s?
Parenting can be a challenge for anyone, regardless of astrological sign, but have you ever wondered why some parents seem to have it easier than others?
Whether you’re an airy Libra struggling with a stubborn Scorpio or a practical Capricorn expecting a baby somewhere between the cusp of Gemini and Cancer, get some insight on which sign pairings make for the most harmonious households—and which ones definitely don’t.
One way to figure out the complicated task of parenting is to take a look at the elemental groups of earth, air, water, and fire for guidance. Here, we go into exactly what might be the problem, based on each pairing.
Best Child Matches for Earth Sign Parents (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn)
Earth signs have the easiest job parenting other earth signs and children who are born under the water signs of Scorpio, Pisces, and Cancer.
Moms and dads born under earth signs are stable, down-to-earth parents and make the perfect anchor for their water sign child’s sometimes tempestuous emotions. These parents are dependable and provide a strong support system that’s a comfort to the water sign’s ever changing internal sea. And because these parents are hands-on, they can relate to their serious little water signs by literally “showing them the ropes” of life.

Best Matches for Air Sign Parents (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius)
The air parent/fire child combo is always full of excitement. Fire sign children with these parents will never have the opportunity to grow bored or restless with air signs as parents. They might even be too stimulating. But either way, both elements understand the other’s ever-running inner motor. Air signs have a strong streak of “forgive and forget,” or rather, they’re just too busy to get caught in the past, so children in their care will benefit from their ability to let each day begin anew.
Best Matches for Water Sign Parents (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)
Whether the child is a sensitive Pisces, an intuitive Scorpio, or a calm Cancer, water signs are natural nurturers. For that reason, earth sign children will feel emotionally validated and heard with water sign parents, and the calm, “chill” of earth sign children pairs well with the water signs’ need for periods of quiet. While water parents can be supportive, their guidance will rarely spill over into the realm of pushiness. This parent/child pair will know how to navigate the delicate social dance of closeness and separation, which will be a boon as the child grows into adolescence and on to adulthood.
Best Matches for Fire Sign Parents (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius)
These signs have the easiest job parenting other fire signs and children under the air signs of Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius.
Air sign children can be chatty big thinkers, and their fire sign parents will have a good time engaging them in conversation about their many, many interests. Fire sign parents will have no shortage of activities and field trips planned for their little airy babies. These fire sign parents often have large personalities and their little air sign children will be entranced by their parent’s command of life.
