Ready for a baby? Yeah, maybe not yet! If you're anything like us, you have a hard enough time feeding and clothing yourself and worrying about doing that for another human sounds kind of crazy. Sure, kids are cute and everything. But other people's kids are cute. Not your own. Or maybe you're a little more advanced than us. Maybe you actually have your life together (what is that like?). Maybe you are totally feeling kids and have a bad case of baby fever. Regardless of where you are on the potential motherhood spectrum, if you want to be a mom one day, you're probably curious about what kind of a mom you're going to be. Will you be the type who drives the kids to soccer practice and pack sliced oranges? Will you inspire your kids by being a bad-a$$ career woman? Will you teach them five different languages or enroll them in every class at the rec centre? So many options! How do you know what kind of a mom you will be? You check your zodiac, of course! Here is how to know what kind of mother you will be!
12 Aries: Hands-on Mom
You are the ultimate hands-on mom, Aries. You could never imagine hiring a nanny or missing out on anything with your kiddos. You're the type who jumps right into motherhood and embraces everything from diaper changing and feedings to homework help and shopping trips. You love the idea of spending tons of time with your kids too - you want to be involved in every aspect of their lives. Just be careful that you don't go too far and smother them. As an Aries, you'll want to support them and give them a sense of confidence in themselves. So make sure you are supportive and not overbearing. You love the idea of getting your kid involved in all sorts of sports and lessons. After school hours in your house are likely to be a bit wild trying to get everyone ready and on the way to their various clubs, teams, and rehearsals.
11 Taurus: Stable Mom
Taurus, you are the rock that your family is built on. You're not one of those moms who changes her mind as often as she changes her underwear. Your kids will be able to depend on you because they know you are stable, balanced, and reliable. You give your kids rules and routines to follow - some people see this as strict but you know it just gives your kids the secure environment they need to thrive. Sometimes you can be a bit stern; it's your way or no way at all. But this allows your children to learn and inspires them to work hard, just like you. You're also going to be quite the shutterbug. You're the family that is going to have professionally made Christmas cards every year with the kids decked out in matching outfits. And you better believe that won't be the only photoshoot your family poses for each year. You're all about creating memories you can remember forever and sharing those adorable memories with everyone you know on social media.
10 Gemini: Fun Mom

But that's not to say you neglect your mom duties. You're also very responsible. As a Gemini with two sides, you're able to have your fun side and more serious responsible side. As a social butterfly, you'll encourage your kids to get out of their comfort zones and to always use their words to explain what they want or need. Nothing is ever awkward or boring with a Gemini mom!
9 Cancer: Loving Mom
You're the ultimate sweet and loving mom. If any mom is going to show up at school with a basket of home-baked cupcakes for their kid's half birthday, it's a Cancer mom. If you and your partner decide to go all good cop/bad cop on your kids, you'll always play the good cop. Your strategy is to make your kids like you so much that they would never want to disappoint you by misbehaving. For you, Cancer, being a mom absolutely completes you. You are looking for someone to direct all of your love and nurture towards. Some may even think you're obsessed with your kids, but don't worry, it's not in a weird way. You just want to be the ultimate mom and BFF all in one. In fact, you're not just best friends with your kids but you're best friends with their friends too! And you keep that up even as your children and their friends enter adulthood.

You'll sign them up for all sorts of clubs and lessons, and yes, you will even include some of the boring ones if you truly think it will help them later in life. You inspire them with your own achievements. You just have to make sure that your children don't start to doubt themselves when they think about how totally awesome and accomplished their mom is.

7 Virgo: Involved Mom

Your kids see you as a mentor and not a super controlling parent. They love that you let them be themselves. You want to encourage your kids' natural gifts and interests, instead of forcing them into stuff they don't like. Your kids love you for this as they are free to be whatever they want to be. And they know you'll be there for the ride!
6 Libra: Chill Mom
When it comes to being a mom, you're way more hands-off than some other mothers of the zodiac. You are the ultimate chill mom. You believe your kids should be themselves and don't put pressure on them to be perfect.

They'll never be stressed or unhappy under your roof. They'll be free to express themselves and won't be worried about having to come to you when they mess up. Plus, you'll probably be pretty lax on rules like curfews and piercings, which they'll love.

And your kids love you for all of this! They get to have the most magical childhood with a mom who loves, cares, and supports them unconditionally. You want your children to become independent, kind and creative individuals. You value the arts and would love your kids to spend their days finger-painting, reciting poems, and playing guitars. But play is the most important thing to you. You don't want your kids growing up too fast and will always make sure they can be children for as long as possible, and that is really awesome!
