But could your astrological sign also play a role in your parenting style, as well as parenting challenges? If you're a first-time parent (or are currently awaiting your firstborn's arrival), read on to discover your parenting profile according to your zodiac sign and let us know if you agree or disagree.  

    Aries (March 21-April 19)
    People born under the Aries zodiac sign are gutsy, energetic and passionate. While this translates to a parent who will be untiring in caring for her children, this might also signify a confrontational, impulsive and stubborn side of you. Look at the bright side though -- when you speak, your kids will know you mean business.
    Famous Aries moms:
    Jennifer Garner, Reese Witherspoon, Victoria Beckham

    Taurus (April 20-May 20)

    Tauruses are known to be patient, reliable and with an incredible sense of stability, which makes them excellent family members and friends. They put great value in handling finances and are great with money. While this can serve as a good example for their children moneywise, Tauruses also tend to put such a high standard on their image and reputation -- not bad at all, as long as you put your family first before other's opinion of you or your parenting skills.

    Gemini (May 21-June 20)
    Geminis are witty, funny, and can adapt well to different situations, which makes them great social role models for their children. However, Geminis have a tendency to be indecisive and lack focus, which may affect the stability and security of their family life. Be more intentional in your parenting and you'll be good to go!

    Cancer (June 21-July 22)
    Cancers are warm and nurturing parents, which helps establish a loving environment for the home. They are playful and spontaneous, which is a definite plus point when it comes to playtime with their tots. On the other hand, they should watch out for they also have an overly emotional side, causing them to be temperamental and pessimistic at times. Be aware of your nature and try to catch yourself before it causes tension in the family.

    Leo (July 23-August 22)
    Leos are kind, thoughtful, generous and warm-hearted parents. They tend to be vain and enjoy being the center of attention that they might unintentionally steal the limelight from their kids. They also have a flair for drama, exaggerating and blowing things out of proportion, which does not help a child when it comes to simplifying and finding solutions to conflicts. But try using this "skill" when reading a storybook and your child will love you so.
    Famous Leo moms: Charlize Theron, Jennifer Lopez, Jackie Kennedy

    Virgo (August 23-September 22)
    Virgos are wise, understanding and practical parents. There’s hardly any problem that they can’t find a workaround for, because of their careful, analytical and observant eye. There’s a catch, though. They also have an inclination to be perfectionists in the parenting space. They’re so steeped in routine that their children might find it hard to be spontaneous or adaptable. Virgo parents also tend to be hypercritical of others and do not sugarcoat their words when sharing their opinions. The solution? Consciously try to look for fun things to do with your kids, and watch your words when talking to them.
    Famous Virgo moms: Blake Lively, Salma Hayek, Beyonce

    As their scales sign may suggest, people born under the Libra zodiac sign are fair, kind and enjoy a sense of harmony in the family, which makes them great mediators in times of conflict.

    Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
    Scorpios have a strong sense of focus and ambition in life, letting their children learn the value of setting both short- and long-term goals. They’re also incredibly intuitive, so they are sensitive to what their kids are feeling and thinking. Because of this, they may find it difficult to let their kids go when they start spreading their wings. Baby steps in letting your child assert his independence will help.

    Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
    Archers are fun-loving and adventurous individuals, making them “cool” parents! They know how to make light of things and as such have a great coping mechanism in times of troubles that they make great role models to their kids in terms of resilience and optimism. On the flip side, they can also tend to be impatient and be brutally harsh when they share their thoughts, which may be hard for family members.

    Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
