Whether you have children or are planning a child, learning their zodiac sign can give you insight into what kind of personality they will have.
Your child’s personality will be complex and unique. However, their zodiac sign will give you interesting clues as to what to expect, and how to best understand how they tick. Below we list some of the many traits your child will display, depending on when they were born.
The Aries Child
Born March 21 – April 19
The Aries child is a bundle of energy that is always looking for an outlet to express this. When they start to talk, they are always asking to go outdoors and play. If they don’t get to do this, they will likely be complaining about how bored they are!
Full of exciting ideas, they may need your help to see them through. Aries children can quickly become impatient and explode into a temper tantrum that is over as quick as it began. Their personality makes them naturally competitive with their friends and they are also prone to bumps and bruises from trying to take shortcuts and be the fastest and the best.
The Taurus Child
Born April 20 – May 20
Your Taurus child may let you sleep in on the weekends – though I’m making no promises! However, they love their sleep and enjoy taking it easy. They need secure boundaries and will thrive when you provide them.
Not keen on the open outdoors, but they do love exploring in the garden or the backyard. This sensual earth sign will also like to play in the dirt! The scent of the flowers and the warmth of the sun all excite your beautiful child. Stubbornness can be an issue at times, and you may see a terrible temper tantrum when they don’t get what they want. Nevertheless, they love you and adore you and will come round in the end.
The Gemini Child
born May 21 – June 20
The Gemini child is the one full of questions. They may talk very early on, and their curious personality may feel overwhelming at times! But the world is the most interesting place, and they must know all about it!
Additionally, it may feel like you have two children for the price of one. Your spritely little Gemini will have a side that is quiet, serious and contemplative as their little mind fires at a million miles an hour. The other side to them is telling the most imaginative stories that make you and them smile and laugh non-stop. This mercurial child will also love reading, however finishing books could be an issue on occasion. Nevertheless, their library will grow exponentially, and you will always be asked to read them “just one more” bedtime story every night.
The Cancer Child
Born June 21 – July 22
Your little Cancer child will love their Mommy very much. However, this love will sometimes feel like they are your Mommy too! They may sometimes feel a bit nervous about new situations and prefer to play house at home.
Moodiness can also be a problem sometimes, as Cancer children feel everything so very deeply. If a sibling offends them, they will unleash a vicious self-defense. So teaching them how to become aware of their feelings, and giving them a creative outlet will work wonders. The personality of this child loves music, and they will adore being your star sous-chef if you let them help you in the kitchen.
The Leo Child
born July 23 – August 22
The Leo child is not shy and will adore being taken out to attend social occasions. They have a personality that laps up attention when friends and family remind them of how adorable they are. Little Leo wants to dress up fancy, and will probably put on a dramatic little show to entertain everyone.
Leo has the personality of a natural leader, and so you may need to tell your little one the difference between leading and being bossy. As they wear their heart on their sleeve, you can tell them that this is the place from which they lead – with compassion and warmth. Tell them that their inner sunshine helps their friends and family grow. Cuddles with your precious Leo child will be tender and delightful.
The Virgo Child
born August 23 – September 22
Your Virgo child will be intrigued by everything about this beautiful new world they find themselves in. In their super active minds, they will be analyzing, categorizing and filing for future reference. As soon as they can talk, they will let you know that they know everything, and they know everything better than you do!
It may sometimes feel that your Virgo child is too much of a perfectionist, and they will criticize you for things that don’t seem right. However underneath these observations is a desire to serve and care about things and people. They also must be encouraged to not aim this same criticism on themselves. This can lead to them becoming quite introverted, and their fear of imperfection can make them afraid to try anything new. Let them know that their worth has nothing to do with being top of the class, but in the underlying desire to see the best in everything.
The Libra Child
born September 23 – September 22
Your Libra child adores you and sees you as their best friend. In fact, friendships are paramount to them, and sometimes they may struggle when wanting to be friends with two different people who make them choose between them. Libra thinks everyone should be friends!
Your child will love to dress in beautiful clothing and will respond instinctively to the beauty in nature. They have the personality of a natural diplomat, they will have an air of peace and balance about them, and point out when things appear unfair. Sometimes it might feel a little frustrating when they appear indecisive about things – but this is because they can see the benefits and the negatives of both sides. Teach them that there is no wrong choice in life, only different ones.
The Scorpio Child
born October 23 – November 21
Your Scorpio child is incredibly passionate, and the depths of their eyes can feel like they reach to eternity. And likely they can see straight through to your soul too. They will communicate their deep need for your connection to them non-verbally, and sometimes you might feel like they own you! This could cause jealousy among siblings, so teach them that your love doesn’t change when shared.
Their ability to deeply analyze emotion makes them extremely empathic. They have an almost surgical ability to notice the finest of details. This can give them a talent with a musical instrument, or provide them with an aptitude for scientific thought. Secretiveness is also an issue for Scorpio children, so do your best to enable them to trust you without fail.
The Sagittarius Child
born October 23 – November 21
Your Sagittarius child has an optimistic personality and always in search of a new stimulation. They will always beg you to go outdoors and take them on adventures. But they won’t be satisfied with just a trip to the playground. They will want to explore new territory that will introduce them to new horizons.
This free-spirited child will also be very honest with you. If they tell you that you look good today, they are telling the truth as they see it! However, the flipside is that they will also tell you if they don’t like an item of clothing you are wearing or the hairstyle you have chosen. For this reason, you will need to teach them tact. Sagittarian children will also seek answers to the deeper questions and will make you need to hit google for complicated answers that have never crossed your mind before.
The Capricorn Child
born December 22 – January 19
Your Capricorn child comes into the world looking like an old soul. So you may have to encourage them to feel young “again.” However, they do sometimes appear like they carry the weight of the world on their shoulders.
Capricorn children have a quirky sense of humor, and this can be encouraged to help them feel safe to lighten up. The toys they prefer to play with would include raw materials that they can involve build and create things from, such as legos or modeling clay. These serious children tend to be hard on themselves and will feel guilty whether or not they have done wrong. If you need to reprimand, it is safe to go gently with them, as their remorse is entirely genuine.
The Aquarius Child
born January 20 – February 18
Your Aquarius Child is quirky with an extremely independent personality. They are the child who will insist on mismatching socks but will pull it off as a reasonable choice, and they won’t agree that it should be done a different way. In fact, amongst their vast range of friends, they may even start a trend of doing this.
Also, Aquarian kids are not the type that needs lots of cuddles and emotional coddling. However, they love to connect through picking your brain about how the world works. Sometimes they can appear insensitive, and out of touch with emotion, however, their vision of the deeper underlying connection of everyone they love is in the place where it is not held back by feelings. They are already there, and you will see this in the great diversity of friends they choose to have, that come from incredibly assorted walks of life.
The Pisces Child
Born February 19 – March 20
The Pisces Child is a dreamer and mystic. They are extremely sensitive and will shed a tear readily when their heart is so moved. As they have extreme empathy, this can sometimes feel too much for them. For this reason, they can always be found playing in their made up imaginary world.
As a result, they may forget to do chores or homework, or anything that demands that they pay attention to the real world. Their first instinct is to sacrifice themselves for those they love, so you must teach them to understand their boundaries so that they don’t become trampled on. They are like a sponge and very easily influenced, so make sure you monitor what they watch on TV to ensure they avoid anything that could leave a traumatizing wound.
