What Your Baby's Astrological Sign Says About Their Personality
When you’re expecting a baby, one of the most exciting parts is wondering who this little person will become! Will they be a silly goose like their dad? Maybe amazing at math, like Mom. Could your baby grow to be a stellar athlete or artist, outgoing or on the shy side, stubborn or easygoing? While it’s impossible to know for sure if your little bub will take after you, exhibit traits of people up and down the family tree, or be 100% unique…there is an ancient tool you can use right now that might give you an idea! Yes, we’re talking about astrology and the Zodiac! So, have a little fun and delve into the stars to find out what kind of personality Baby will have, according to their astrological sign.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
The Zodiac calendar starts at the end of March, so it’s quite fitting that the first sign, Aries, belongs to those who love being first. (Prepare for lots of excited Me Firsts! from your ambitious kiddo.) As Aries’ assigned animal, the ram, suggests, your little one will be a bold character who never shies away from running head-first into most any situation. (And run they will! It’s smart to babyproof at the first sign of crawling.) Enjoy your curious and spontaneous ram, who will grow to be courageous, head-strong, and up for all adventures. They’ll surely be a lot of fun, proving to be just a wee bit of a challenge in the toddler days! (Good thing, you’ll be prepared!)
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
Don’t be fooled by your stubborn Taurus! Your little bull is simply a stickler for routine and, perhaps, just a little hesitant about trying new things. That means consistency (regular bedtimes and mealtimes) and warm encouragement can go a long way here. You know what else Taureans are known for? Their tenacity, fiery personalities, and flair for the dramatic! (Get ready for lots of excitement!) With all that passion, wee bulls can also be a tad hot tempered, so it’s a good idea to get schooled on tantrum-tamers early. (You got this!) But don’t worry, your sweet bub will grow to be someone who’s strong in their convictions, who works hard to achieve happiness, and who is fiercely loyal to those they love—like you!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
Parents of Geminis often joke that they get two kids for the price of one! (Geminis are symbolized by twins, after all.) This “dual personality” sign can be a blessing or a challenge depending on the day. But in the end, your problem-solving Gemini is all about being open and honest—and telling you all about it! (Get ready for your tot’s chatterbox tendencies!) You’ll find yourself surprised and delighted by your wee one’s quick and smart observations. (A Gemini can read a room like no other.) Playgroups and frequent visits to the park are a must for your highly social and activity-seeking Gemini. Keep an eye out for your precious tyke's indecision and knack for wearing themselves out because they want to do all the things! Some evening sweet talk will do a world of good for your little one.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
Your sweet bub has a lot in common with Cancer’s symbol, the crab. Both are cautious and sport a tough shell to protect themselves from hurt. And both can be a smidge clingy when upset. (For your lovey Cancer, that means the 5 S’s are definitely the key to their comfort.) So, while you could call your perfect little crab sensitive…you could also call them loyal, exceedingly loving, emotionally deep, and super-intuitive. Plus, Cancers tend to possess an uncanny ability to sense what others are feeling and act accordingly. That means your kiddo is oozing with empathy. Take tender care of them, offering your babe the tools to express and work through their emotions in a healthy way.
LEO (July 23-August 22)
Get ready: You’ll hear your wee Leo’s “roar” from a mile away…but that’s not bad news! Your passionate, energetic, confident, and attention-loving lion will forever plop themselves in the spotlight of your family. It's a good thing they make for a great star of the show! Leos grow to be highly considerate, affectionate, and super-loving people who are A+ listeners. But know that Leos can also be jealous and possessive, so be prepared for some sibling rivalry in the years to come…especially when it comes to their brother or sister’s favorite toys. (Be prepared!)
VIRGO (August 23-September 22)
Routine, routine, routine! Virgo babies love routine. They also really respond to being in an orderly environment, so three cheers for a tidy playroom! At times, however, their I-like-it-like-this inclinations can lead to bossy behavior and perfectionism. (Be ready with steadying words.) At the same time, Virgos are quick thinkers and over-thinkers, which can lead to bouts of anxiety and stress. Bring some extra positive reinforcement for this little one! Finally, get ready to embrace your special Virgo’s humble, intelligent, and practical ways… just don’t get in their way when feeling the flow!
LIBRA (September 23-October 22)
It’s no wonder Libras are represented with a scale. These kiddos are all about balance, harmony, and fairness. (No bullies allowed!) Little Libras love to keep things in order, especially when it comes to aesthetics. (Spotting and cultivating beauty is a Libra specialty.) There’s also a really good chance that your social butterfly is very, very charming…so watch out for toddler- and preschool-size manipulations when they finally figure out how to get what they want out of you! But always remember that your sweet Libra loves to give and receive buckets of love—always!
SCORPIO (October 23-November 21)
Your little scorpion is a natural born leader, who knows how they like things, and will strive endlessly to achieve their goals. (Hello, gusto!) You’ll surely appreciate all the tenacity and intelligence packed into your pint-sized Scorpio…but it’s important to remember that Scorpios enjoy alone time just as much as the spotlight. (For a toddler, setting up a reading nook or a play tent for privacy could be just what they need.) And like a scorpion, your precious bub can be snappy when they feel misunderstood, so it’s a good idea to work on communication skills with Toddler-ese, early!
SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 21)
Armed with a bow and arrow, your heart doesn’t have a chance against the wee archer, your Sagittarius! These energetic little movers are always looking to explore, learn, and absorb more, more, more. You’ll likely never see a dull moment with a Sagittarius under your roof, especially since they’re so open to change and adventure. (Warning: You will be getting your chase on at the playground, the science museum, the park, and more!) As a toddler and a little kid, your Sag requires a lot of entertaining, so be sure to keep plenty of fun activities, fact-filled books, and learning toys stashed around the house.
CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19)
Busy as a bee, your little Cap is a hard worker who steps around and over roadblocks in the name of accomplishing their goals. (Don’t be surprised if your wee one decides to be the first walker in your playgroup!) This determination can lead to perfectionism down the road, so be ready to help your tyke navigate those Big Kid feelings. But rest assured, Capricorns relish these types of chats. They’re actually pretty great at talking through complicated emotions. This kind of maturity also means that rule-following Caps are ripe for (age-appropriate) responsibility. Bring on the toddler chores! (It’ll make their heart sing!)
AQUARIUS (January 20-February 18)
Fluid and flexible, your open-minded little Aquarius is never fixed in any one position. That innate free spirit quality, however, can sometimes morph into a bit of rebellion. (After all, Aquarians hate to be contained!) At the same time, your sweet one will grow into an earth-loving, fairness-seeking, relationship-repairing, emotionally and spiritually generous individual who truly wants to leave the world a better place. And, at times, they may want to do it all on their own! (Independence is an Aquarian hallmark.) So be prepared for many mornings filled with stubborn declarations of “I do it myself!”
PISCES (February 19-March 20)
While Pisces are symbolized by a fish, it would be more accurate if it were two fish…each swimming in the opposite direction: one toward reality and one toward fantasy! You see, your beloved fishy notices every little thing around them…but is also a natural daydreamer, bursting with creativity and empathy. So, as Baby gets older and older, you’ll notice them shouldering the emotional heft of other people’s feelings. And they might start to veer into pessimism, too. (Teaching coping skills like mindfulness at a young age can work wonders.) But through it all, your Pisces is a compassionate little caretaker...who might just shine their brightest as a big sibling!
