Sometimes we may think that we were born in the wrong or the perfect family. Why is that? Well, it may be the zodiac that plays a large part in how we get along with the rest of our kin. Some of the signs mesh beautifully while other signs can’t agree on anything. Because the signs have elemental qualities, it is good to know what element your signs is associated with as well as other members of the family.
Signs and Their Elements
Earth – Taurus. Virgo, Capricorn
Air – Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
Water – Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces
Each sign shows the personality traits of the elements their sign represents. Fire signs can be hot-tempered, steamy, passionate, self-centered, and leaders. Earth signs are grounded, level headed, stubborn, and natural healers. Air signs are communicators, adventurers, impatient, and skilled. Water signs are nesters, givers, combative, and peacemakers.
Horoscopes reveal all of the underlying traits of each sun sign including the rising sign, moon, which planet is in which of the 12 houses, and how these signs relate to each other. Knowing this information can help to explain the dynamics of each relationship with our kin. Birth charts give the foundation of the personality, preferences, and natural skills that set the stage for all relationships that can carry through for a lifetime.
Having your horoscope chart done for each member can let you know when bumps in the road can appear, like when planets are going retrograde. You may be experiencing minor upsets when others seem to be having a fluid, easy time in life. When planets are in retrograde, it is not a great time to make major decisions or plans. Knowing this will allow you to let another member take the lead until you have passed this period.
While we love our parents, siblings, and children, sometimes we have trouble liking them. The stars and sun signs can play a major role in struggling with relationships that are not compatible based zodiac signs. Earth signs tend to get along with other earth signs as well as water signs. The stability with a hands-on approach characteristic of an earth sign will help to ground the impetuous, fluid nature of water signs.
Air signs are on the same vibration with other air signs as they don’t dwell in the past and forget, as well forgive, easily. Fire signs go well with air signs mainly due to being able to stimulate adventure in each other’s life journey. Each day is seen as a fresh start knowing that boredom is not an option.
Many misunderstandings can be avoided when the parents understand the nature and tendencies of each child learned from a birth chart. Having the advantage of understanding the strengths and challenges the child will be facing can ease the relationship of signs that may not be compatible. While fire and water sign combinations can be steamy or dampening, focusing on areas of compatibility that the charts will show can ease tensions or divert them.
Earth and air signs may have trouble finding fruitful grounds as these relationships may be a bit dry and distant. Look to the charts to see which houses contain planets that work together well. The moon can also highlight compatible aspirations giving mutual goals to be achieved. Another way to relate is to support each others goals independently without being directly involved.
Despite your gender, the stars and planets may play a big role in how well you get along with your brothers and sisters. The elements each have unique characteristics that can strengthen the relationship or challenge it. The important part of youth is to find the common ground that allows for trust and loyalty to grow. The birth chart can give clues to what you may have in common or ways to support each other in life’s journey.
Parents need to understand that knowing your mate’s chart as well as your own will give you clues as to working together to raise your children with mutual support and guidance. Each child needs to have guidance that they can relate to for proper self-esteem. The parent that is compatible with their child’s stars will often be the one the child relates to easier.
Good parenting requires teamwork with each parent knowing their support role in raising their child. Having each member’s birth chart available will help to understand those roles when relating to the child. Relating and supporting the child nature as explained by their chart, can help to grow more intimate bonds that will last a lifetime. Create a unified home in which the strengths of each member will reflect in the union of the whole.
