When asked about my sons’ personalities, I will almost always mention that they’re Virgos and were born the years of the ox and dragon in the Chinese zodiac. I think those little tidbits says so much, even to those who only dabble in astrology.
While I don’t exactly live my life by the moon and the stars, I’ve always found astrology fascinating and am intrigued by the idea that different aspects of our nature are affected by our zodiac signs and birth charts. As such, I was super excited to read Momstrology: The AstroTwins’ Guide to Parenting Your Little One by the Stars, and am still thinking through all the thoughtful advice it provided me as a Leo mom (with a Scorpio fourth house ruler). Momstrology is loaded with sign-specific advice to make sense of parenting from an astrological point of view accounting for the strengths and weaknesses of each sign between mother/child and father/child, whether you’re new to astrology or really into it.
