We can learn so much from looking to the stars — from insight into our love life, preferences, and most of all personality. And while we can learn a ton about our present-day selves, we can also gain insight into what we might be like in the future. Many women often wonder about what type of mom they’ll be like one day. So why not see what’s written in the stars to get an answer?
We’ve compiled a comprehensive list of what each sign says about what type of mom a woman will be. Some of them won’t be too surprising. We know Virgos are neurotically organized and high over achievers, so don’t be surprised that they have such enthusiasm when it comes to approaching motherhood. Likewise, Leos are famous (or more like infamous) for their leadership and, ahem, bossy qualities. So it should be no surprise that they run the household and their kids’ schedules when they become the leader of a family.
But then again, we bet there will be some signs that might surprise you. We bet you won’t guess what sign is a born-to-be mother thanks to their naturally nurturing attitude. And we have a feeling that you’ll be surprised about which signs are bound to be the most supportive parents.
Remember, everyone has the same potential to be incredible parents, regardless of what their horoscope says. Take our predictions with a grain of salt and, most importantly, have confidence in your own capabilities.
