Let’s all just admit it, even if you’re single, you probably sit around wondering what your future family will be like someday. And if you’re in a relationship, your boyfriend may not even realize how often you daydream about the names of your future children. On the other end of the spectrum, you may imagine all the awesome things you’ll be able to do with your husband when you have a good salary and no kids, like adopt fifty dogs, if that’s your thing. The point is that even though none of us really know where we’ll be in life a few years from now, we all allow ourselves to dream about what our future family will look like. There’s no way to know how things will turn out for sure, but the stars do hold a few clues. Here’s what your future family will look like based on your zodiac sign!
16 Fire Signs Aren't Into Traditional Family Structure
Here’s what you need to know about fire signs: they’re headstrong, they do things how they want, and they certainly do not take no for an answer. So naturally, the traditional family structure may not exactly be their style. At the very least, their kids will definitely not be the “seen and not heard” type. Nope, fire signs handle parenthood with the same stubborn approach that they handle everything else with, and their kids tend to be just as stubborn and strong-willed as they are, especially at a young age! Does this make parenting tough for fire signs? Oh, you bet. It’s definitely not a cakewalk with clashing personalities like that all in one household. But interestingly enough, fire signs are actually drawn to parenthood because they enjoy a good challenge. And even when their kids are being difficult, they sort of admire that rebellious spirit they’ve helped foster.
15 Aries Can Expect Sassy kids
Aries are sass masters when they’re young, and honestly, this doesn’t really change as they grow up. Anyone who marries an Aries girl has to be ready for that, and there are lots of men who aren’t willing to take on the challenge. But Aries, when you do meet that special someone who you want to start a family with, it’s going to be one wild ride. Aries don’t stick to a particular parenting style, as we mentioned earlier, being super traditional isn’t really for them, but any methods outside of that are fair game. They may employ a few different approaches, but one thing’s for certain: a hefty dose of tough love is needed to teach those sassy kids of theirs! Yup, any kids an Aries woman has will likely take after mom in terms of their personalities for the first few years. Hilarious? Yes. A serious challenge? Also yes.
14 Leo Will Have Superstar kids
Leo loves to be the center of attention! And they never do anything halfway. They take on projects and challenges that they’re seriously passionate about and throw their whole heart and soul into it. If you have a Leo parent, you know exactly where this is going. Here’s the thing about a Leo woman with kids, she expects the same levels of commitment and dedication from her kids as she would expect from herself! If you grew up with a Leo for a mom, you know that the pressure was always on. For some kids, this can be a great environment, because they can grow up to achieve more than they could have ever imagined with their mom as their biggest motivator. But if they’re a more naturally laid-back kid, they may find themselves struggling to keep up and please their Leo mom. It’s a tough balance for parent and child.
13 Sagittarius Will Let Their Kids Be Homeschooled
Sagittarius, you probably struggled a bit in school growing up. And it’s not because you were stupid, not even close. In fact, Sags tend to be quite intelligent, well-liked, and creative. However, you just couldn’t stand the structure of the traditional school system, and you may have even realized at a young age that you didn’t want to put your future children through that same system! Let’s face it, out regular school system can often discourage creativity, put a ton of unnecessary pressure on kids, and teach kids that their grades define who they are. And as a Sag, you’re totally against all that! So when you do have kids, you’ll probably create an awesome homeschool environment for them instead. Maybe you’ll hold class outside on nice days, take trips to local museums, and encourage lots of messy creative projects. No matter what your style is, your kids will thrive in this environment.
12 Earth Signs Have A Lot Of Thinking To Do
If you’re an earth sign, you definitely do not approach the idea of parenthood and starting a family lightly. For example, many people feel like they should have kids just because “everyone does.” But that’s not how you feel about it. In fact, every earth sign will strongly consider whether or not having kids and running a household is even right for them! So you may find more “childfree” people who are born under earth signs than among the rest of the zodiac. So, what about the earth signs who do choose to have kids? Well, it’s definitely not going to be like the happy-go-lucky households that some other signs enjoy! Earth signs tend to be pretty tough on their kids, but it’s not because they want them to be superstars like Leo, it’s because they know that the world can teach some corrupt values, and they want their kids to be compassionate and smart.
11 Taurus Will Want To Be Outdoorsy
Taurus loves the great outdoors! If you’re a Taurus girl, you’ve probably decided that if you do choose to have kids, you will want them to have the same respect for nature and love of the wild that you do. You imagine taking them on their first camping trip and teaching them all about the flora and fauna that live in the woods. You dream about long walks on the beach where you and your kids can splash in the water, collect seashells and sea glass, and maybe even see some dolphins and whales jumping in the surf. You want to teach them how to garden, and you would love to start a little flower garden. Many Taurus women even raise their kids as vegetarians because it’s a more sustainable diet, and they want to teach their kids that animals are friends and not food! Yup, Taurus, you’ll have a few flower children in your household.
10 Virgo Wants To Be Childfree
Have you ever wondered which zodiac sign is actually the least likely to have kids? Well, if you ever guessed Virgo, you would be right on the money! Why are Virgos so unlikely to choose parenthood while some other signs can’t wait to be a parent one day? Well, if you know any Virgos, or if you are a Virgo yourself, you know that Virgos pride themselves on being practical and rational above all things. And if you’ve thought seriously about having children, you know that it’s often a more emotional decision than anything else. While you may think, “I can’t wait to have a mini-me and see them grow up and discover the world and love them unconditionally!”...Virgo is probably thinking, “Well, there are already billions of people on the planet, kids are super expensive, they can make marriage more difficult, and how could I afford their college education?”
9 Capricorn Will Be Running A Tight Ship
If you have a Capricorn as a parent, this entry will probably make you laugh because you’ll definitely recognize a few elements of your own upbringing here! And if you are a Capricorn yourself, you’ll probably find yourself nodding, because you already know how strict you’re going to be as a parent! Let’s be real, you’re so strict with yourself that you already know that you will have super high expectations for your kids. Curfew? Of course. Homework always done before TV? Definitely. Smartphones? Hmmm, maybe not until high school. Speaking of school, will you be going to every parent teacher conference and seeing every report card? No doubt. Mandatory after school activities? Yea, the kids aren’t wiggling out of that one. Capricorn, your kids might get frustrated with you when they’re young, but once they grow up, they’ll be thankful for the good habits that you’ve instilled in them.
8 Air Signs Will Have Very Different Parenting Styles
If you have a few friends who fall under various air signs, you know that they don’t share as many similarities as other signs who fall under the same elements. For example, fire signs are generally bold and outspoken, earth signs are grounded and low maintenance, and water signs can be highly emotional. Air signs, on the other hand, find strength in their uniqueness, and it means they can be tough to figure out, label, or put into a certain “box.” One thing is for sure, they all have VERY different parenting styles! Which is why it’s actually best that air signs don’t marry other air signs. In just a minute or two, you’ll see why a Libra mom and Aquarius dad would totally clash, and why a Gemini mom and Libra dad might run into a few roadblocks. Air signs need to consider their partners very carefully before raising kids!
7 Gemini Is Into Laid Back Parenting
Gemini, you already know that you have many different sides to your personality. This is why the idea of being a parent and finding that ideal “parenting style” for your family can totally freak you out sometimes! Sometimes, you think that running a more traditional household would be more stable for the kids. Other times, you wonder if you could handle the pressure of homeschooling. And on other days, you wonder if adopting might be the best route for you. You feel like you’re constantly changing your mind about what might be best for your future family! Most of the time when Geminis become parents, they end up adopting a very laid back, hands-off parenting style and letting their kids have a lot of freedom. After all, Geminis need a lot of space and time to discover who they are, why not offer the same opportunity to their kids?
6 Libra Will Have A Traditional Household
Just as their symbol the scale suggests, Libras are all about balance! This is why you will find many Libras striving to run a very “traditional” household. Some people have different ideas about what this might mean, but for Libra, it’s pretty straightforward. A Libra mom will probably want to stay at home with her children for at least a few months, and perhaps work part-time rather than full-time for the first few years of their lives. She is perfectly content with her husband being the main breadwinner for a while and allowing men and women to have different roles in the household. However, she still wants her kids to see her and their dad as equals, they are both just as important, they just fill different roles! She’s also happy to cook dinner, pack lunches, and do most domestic work if her husband if working longer hours than her.
5 Aquarius Will Be A Super Progressive Parent
Still wondering why an Aquarius and a Libra would face some serious obstacles if they ever tried to start a family? Well, you’re about to find out! While Libra would actually prefer to stick to traditional gender roles in their family, Aquarius does not care about sticking with tradition at all. Aquarius parents tend to be very progressive. Let’s say an Aquarius mom has a boy and girl. If the boy wants to borrow her nail polish and wear pink every day, while the girl wants to cut her hair short and spend her days climbing trees and playing sports, she’s totally happy to support both of her kids in their endeavors. Aquarius parents are all about letting kids explore and form their own identities. They would rather split domestic work equally as well. They may even consider homeschooling. In some ways, they can be very similar to Sagittarius parents!
4 Water Signs Let Emotions Rule Their Lives
While water signs can have very different personalities, it’s clear that they are all connected by one thing, they often let their emotions rule their lives. As they get older, managing this becomes easier, but when water signs are young, relationships can be very difficult for them because they feel everything so deeply. This can actually cause some water signs to decide not to have kids. They think that the emotional demands of being a parent and caring for someone else might be way too much for them to handle! But for water signs who do decide to become parents, it’s actually common to have big families. They love the idea of one day inviting all of their grandkids over for the holidays, passing down family stories, and creating a big, beautiful family tree. They are often very caring parents who take their children’s feelings seriously and empathize when they are feeling upset.
3 Cancer Will Have Lots Of Kids
Of all the signs, Cancer women might love big families the most! If they had a ton of cousins growing up, they hope that their kids get to experience the same thing one day. If they were an only child, they probably wished for siblings and want to give their future children sisters and brothers so that they can enjoy each others’ company. When a Cancer woman decides to marry, she absolutely has to make sure that her future husband is on the same page as her when it comes to having kids. Of course, not every single Cancer woman wants kids, but even if she doesn’t, she will likely spend a ton of time volunteering with children, or she may go into a career that involves working with kids. Either way, children will almost definitely be an important part of her life one day, so her husband needs to agree!
2 Scorpio Will Be Their Kids’ Best Friend
It’s tough to be a Scorpio kid. You’re always getting into time out because you struggle to control your temper. You might have cried on your first day of kindergarten because you couldn’t stand the idea of leaving your mom. Your first crush made you feel like your whole world was turned upside down, and when you reach that age when girls can become catty and judgmental, it breaks your heart to be left out of anything. That’s why Scorpio parents are so sweet and forgiving towards their children. They know that children often need their parents to be an emotional refuge for them when the world feels too harsh. They want to answer all of their kids’ tough questions about life while preserving their childhood innocence for as long as possible. They know that their kid will experience pain and hardship, but they will always be there for their kid.
1 Pisces Is Adopting Dogs And Cats
Pisces often think that being a parent would be an incredible adventure, but it just may not be for them. Like Virgos, many Pisces women choose to stay childfree, but for very different reasons. Pisces women want time and space to pursue all of their creative endeavors. They are extremely sensitive to changes in their bodies and rightfully assume that pregnancy will be more difficult for them than the average woman. They are also very sensitive to loud noises, disrupted sleep, and changing routines. Can you imagine taking care of an infant when you feel that way? It’s an enormous challenge for a Pisces. Some of them do take on that challenge because they think they will enjoy the emotional bond and seeing their child discover the world and these aspects of parenthood are very rewarding. Others feel more compassionate towards animals and decide to rescue a few dogs or cats instead!
