Are you a domineering or a fun mom? A flighty or a controlling parent? Well, if you’re wondering about the kind of mom you are (or will be), then look no further than the stars for answers. The cosmos can lend insight into your mothery instincts.

By looking at the derived fifth house of each sign, we can see one’s parenting skills. The fifth house is the house of children and creativity (in astrology, childbirth is the ultimate creative activity because one is literally making another amazing human). In this house, we can look at the relationship you can and will have with your children, as it describes the connection between you and them.

If you want to find out which sign is in your fifth house, look up your birth chart here, then scroll below to read how you approach motherhood and connect with your kids.

Aries

You are known to be the best at everything, which includes your parenting skills. You’ll embrace your children’s big dreams and push them to be better than you in every capacity (which will bring you joy). However, bragging too much about your kids' accomplishments can create friction between you and other parents.

Taurus

You’re the type of parent who needs communication between you and your child to feel in control. This means that they must check in if they are running late after school and are unable to make their curfew. The lack of correspondence between you both will make your head spin.

Gemini

Your darling child will become your bestie for life (even if their teenage years are complicated and hard). In fact, you’ll be known as the “cool mom” who doesn’t get too dogmatic with their kids for cutting class or throwing a party at home when you’re away for the weekend.

Cancer

You can be a little overbearing at times, mostly because you’ve probably wanted to be a parent since you were a child. All the prep work has paid off, and you’re an extra attentive parent. Are you too protective of your children? Yes. But you’ll learn to be less so with time.

Leo

You’ll teach your children to always see the sunny side of matters and embrace their innate optimism. The only caveat is that you can sometimes make their problems about you and not about their needs. You can change if you have faith in yourself. Just don’t steal your children’s thunder.

Virgo

You are authoritarian and a true disciplinarian at times. However, you are also a very patient and understanding parent. Don’t react first to shocking news your children tell you; try to listen with an open heart. Then, you can both problem-solve circumstances together and bond on a deep level.

Libra

You love to share the tea with your kids and their friends. In fact, you are always "in the know” when it comes to their latest crushes, setbacks, and wins. This allows you to be able to have open conversations with your children, which will make you closer over time.

Scorpio

You’re very in tune and sensitive to your child’s needs. You also encourage their creativity all the time. This means that you’ll let them draw on the walls and make art out of their food—as long as they are using their creative minds as a form of self-expression.

Sagittarius

You are two parts giving and one part domineering when it comes to parenting. You just want your child to be independent, which means pushing them to spread their wings and fly outside of their comfort zone—even if they aren’t ready. Learn to listen to their needs more.

Capricorn

You are 100 percent in love with your kids. You give your all to parenting and it shows. Your children can do no wrong, even when they are acting out. Setting limits and boundaries can be hard for you, as you want to encourage their creativity to blossom naturally without rules.

Aquarius

You have an innate interest in your child’s life and listen intently to all the deets they share with you. When your child grows up, you will connect and talk almost every day about everything from dating to recipes, work to TV shows. In fact, you’ll even call each other best friends.

Pisces

You’re the ultimate nurturer and are always there for your children. Your emotions are based on theirs, which means that you’re only in a good mood when they are and you are sad when they cry. You believe that a parent should be as happy as their least-happy child.
