Your kids will bring out the kid in you.
JUMP TO A SIGN:
Pisces and Aries
Pisces and Aries have separate skill sets that can combine nicely in parenthood. Aries’ direct and fearless manner balances Pisces’ tendency to deliberate, while Pisces’ compassion will help soften Aries’ impatience. The child born to you Pisces-Aries parents will get two totally different perspectives, yet feel a unified source of support and encouragement. The Aries parent will keep schedules straight, while Pisces will be the one who knows how to make those tears stop flowing. When you don’t agree on what the best thing for the child might be, you must talk it out. Aries will have to be careful about losing patience with Pisces’ hesitancy; Pisces will have to sometimes just go forward even when it seems to be a little too soon. The child, as a result, will learn how to manage life by weighing out consequences and taking calculated risks. How bad can that be?
Pisces and Taurus
You two make for a loving couple will dote on your children from the moment they’re born. Taurus will brag and boast all over town about the most beautiful babies in the world, while Pisces will do as many things as possible to make sure they have a very easy life. Although this nurturing environment can provide a sense of comfort for your children, the Taurus parent will have to step up at some point to inject some order and discipline into their lives. Pisces gets so emotionally involved, the rules can get thrown out the window, often when they’re needed the most. Pisces will become deeply wounded by children’s carelessness and thoughtlessness, and will always try to teach them to think about how what they do affects other people. Taurus will teach them how to survive in the material world, through hard work. This creates a very nice balance for stabilizing the children’s lives.
Pisces and Gemini
Gemini and Pisces are caring and loving, and when things go right, you’ll provide a balanced and supportive environment. Gemini likes to interact with children on the verbal and intellectual levels. This is the parent who will talk to them, read stories, and teach them word games. Pisces, on the other hand, will enter the children’s world on their terms. Pisces will get lost in the world of make-believe, loving every minute of playing house or making up stories in character during makeshift puppet shows. When it comes to more practical matters, both of you will try to shirk the responsibility. Gemini would much rather make jokes or find ways to think the children’s way out of trouble, while Pisces would rather pretend that nothing could go wrong in the wonderful world of your little family. Both of you will have to work on providing better structure and boundaries for your children.
Pisces and Cancer
As parents you shower your children with love and affection, but you may need some help when it comes to getting organized. Pisces and Cancer amplify each other’s watery nature, making it rather hard for either of you to keep both feet on the ground. Your children might sense this, and then act out so that someone can wake up and set the boundaries. Cancer is the one more likely to do this; but Pisces will certainly help once everyone has decided what will be done. Although you won’t disagree often, your fights could often end in tears and long periods of silence. Efforts must be made to keep your children out of your mini-battles. Cancer will do a great job of tending to the physical and emotional caretaking; Pisces will get right down into the children’s world to help them discover just how far their imagination can go.
Pisces and Leo
The Pisces-Leo parenting pair might seem to be a bit mismatched, but in truth you have much to offer your children. Leo’s strong and regal manner will set the tone in your household. The proud Leo parent will do everything possible to ensure the children do their best to develop their talents. Life can be hard on these children, but they will learn how to survive, especially with the Pisces parent’s help. Pisces will provide the tenderness and kindness that reassure the children that they are loved, no matter what happens. That gift alone will give your children the incentive to always do their best, as well as survive and thrive. Discipline will be better when left to the Leo parent; Pisces’ wishy-washy manner leaves too many loopholes for clever children to work their way through. You’ll put a lot of yourselves into your children, and get loving gratitude in return.
Pisces and Virgo
Pisces and Virgo parents are like two cooing love birds tending to their nest! Both of you thrive on taking care of other people, and giving them whatever you have to share -- so your children can expect to have every available material and emotional resource showered on them. But of all these riches, perhaps the most valuable will be the example of a healthy relationship. You will illustrate how two people -- Virgo with a practical, sensible approach, and Pisces with a wildly imaginative, all-embracing unconditional love -- can come together to create something beautiful. Pisces will play with the children and relate well to the world of make-believe, while Virgo teaches practical skills and shows them how to function in the real world. Virgo will apply discipline, but Pisces will know just the right thing to do when you two want to get your point across to an errant child.
Pisces and Libra
You two gentle souls will make loving and gracious parents, but you may not be prepared for the realities of bringing up children. At the beginning, you can easily get lost in the joy of giving birth or adopting a child. You’ll shower your children with gifts and coo over them as though nothing else in the world will ever matter. This is good for the children ... until they want to claim their independence. It’s likely that Libra and Pisces will have to deal with separation anxiety once school starts -- theirs! Your children might be glad to get out into the world, where they’ll assume things are as sheltering as their own home environment, but you two won’t want them to go. Discipline can also be a problem, as neiher of you is great with boundaries; but when pushed to the limits, Libra will lay down the law.
Pisces and Scorpio
As long as you two are clear about your roles and stick to them, you two sensitive, loving people will make very good parents. Scorpio is the strong one here, and that’s fine until the forcefulness morphs into manipulation. Pisces can teach Scorpio that sometimes it’s best when you just let go; but then again Pisces sees things the way they should be, rather than the way they are. Fortunately, both of you can talk about your feelings. The challenge is for you to take the focus off yourselves and pay more attention to your children. The key word here is "play," and Pisces will have a much easier time doing it. Pisces will get into imaginative fantasies -- maybe more than the children -- while Scorpio will encourage competition in sports and strategy games. Scorpio will be the more natural disciplinarian, but the children can occasionally appeal to Pisces for clemency.
Pisces and Sagittarius
As a parenting team you will work to make sure your children have all the things they need to grow as people, both intellectually and spiritually; but you have to work on the material side of things, too. Raising children is enormously expensive, so one or both of this you will have to focus on earning money more than you might tend to by instinct. Once that is taken care of, you two will provide a high level of guidance and love to your children, from the very start. Both parents will enjoy sharing the wonders of childhood. Sagittarius will be delighted by active play and organized sports, while Pisces will get in the middle of any activity that calls for creativity and imagination. In terms of discipline, both of you have opinions about what’s right and wrong, but neither has an easy time enforcing the rules. You’ll need to work hard on that.
Pisces and Capricorn
Although your dispositions and personalities are very different, you Pisces and Capricorn parents can merge your ideas and become an excellent co-parenting team. Capricorn’s practical ideas and desire to establish order and structure in your children’s lives will be an excellent counterbalance to Pisces’ freewheeling, "unleashed" parenting style. Both of you will have a lot of love for your children, even if you show it in different ways. Capricorn will teach decency and respect, while Pisces will give unconditional love and expect children to deliver the same. You should each remind each other, though, that children won’t always do exactly what you want them to do. And when they don’t, you will have to work together to discipline your children. While Capricorn will have the consequences for breaking the rules worked out in advance of infractions, Pisces will know the children’s weak spots, and use this knowledge to make sure they learn lessons from their mistakes.
Pisces and Aquarius
Your children will definitely know what the idea of "good cop/bad cop" is all about! The Pisces parent does an all-too-convincing impersonation of a doormat, and all that coddling and praise can make your children think they can do no wrong at all. They won’t get away with that for long, though! The Aquarius parent will step in and make sure the children always strive to be and do better than they already are. At the same time, Aquarius’ demands will be non-traditional, and at times, lenient. As two very distinct individuals, as parents you rarely agree on what "the best thing to do" might be, but the good news is you’ll both want it for your children. Your best strategy would be to talk everything through thoroughly and with mutual respect, so you can become a united front. If you let your divergent views show too often, your children will learn how to play one of you off the other before they can say "Mama" and "Dada!"
Pisces and Pisces
As two gushy, loving Pisces parents you will smother your children with affection! You’ll adore getting lost in childhood games, and there might be times when your children wonder who’s really in charge! Nonetheless, you two will enjoy being with your children every step of the way through their development. You’ll anticipate the needs of your offspring, often spoiling them into believing everyone they meet will take care of them so well. As parents you might need to focus early on creating structure and limits for your children, or else there could be serious problems during the teen years. Although it’s fun to cave to the urge to merge with children, it’s always wise to keep a safe emotional distance, so they’ll know who’s in charge of the household. Teaching children that parents have boundaries is the only way to teach them to have healthy boundaries of their own.
