No matter how long you've been with your partner, you might still be surprised to discover different aspects of their personality. My husband and I have been together for nearly a decade, and I only recently learned that he's utterly terrified of large bodies of water. So when you and your significant other are about to embark on one of life's biggest adventures — parenthood — you might find yourself wondering about the kind of father he'll be based on his zodiac sign. Will he be the chill, laid-back guy, the serious, strict dad, or something else entirely?
Sure, astrology may not be a super scientific metric by which you can predict the future. Still, there's something intriguing about pondering how the stars may align and influence a person's journey. Whether you're a devout follower of all things cosmic and mystic or you're just looking for something to keep your mind occupied during your pregnancy, it can be fun to see what the constellations have to say about your partner's potential parenting style. So if you're even a little bit curious when it comes to what kind of father your significant other will be based on his zodiac sign, then check out these astrological insights.
Aries (March 21 to April 19)
According to Astrology, an Aries' fiery disposition means he'll likely be an intense and impassioned father, similar to the symbolic ram in nature. No one will cheer louder at your child's performances than he will.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)
According to What's Your Sign, a Taurus is hard-headed and opinionated. Not only will your SO stand his ground when you disagree with him, but don't be surprised if you hear him trying to reason with your child, too. At the very least, his advanced debate skills might be a good trait to pass on to your little one.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)
Just like queen Bey's babies, a Gemini is represented by twins, which represent duality, according to Astrology Zodiac Signs. Basically, the father-to-be in your life will be great at adapting to virtually any situation.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)
The fourth sign of the zodiac has a bad reputation for being crabby, pardon the pun. According to Astrology, a Cancer is linked to the crab because their home is the top priority. Though your partner won't be toting his house around on his back like a crustacean, he will fiercely defend his new little family as if he actually had a set of pincers.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22)
A Leo takes pride in their family and values loyalty, Astrology Zodiac Signs noted. Perhaps that's why a group of lions is called a pride. Don't be surprised if your baby's father quickly takes to showing off his pride and joy to anyone and everyone.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)
According to What's Your Sign, a Virgo is fastidious and values self-control. For your partner, this means he might need some help adjusting to the sometimes messy and often unpredictable aspects of parenthood.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)
As Astrology noted, a Libra is represented by scales because fairness and harmony are highly valued by this sign. The father of your child will easily transition into his role as mediator and peacekeeper.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)
I will unabashedly admit that I'm biased due to the fact that I was born under this sign. So it's no surprise that a Scorpio is known for being intensely creative, according to What's Your Sign. Your partner will be the kind of dad that slays at masterminding your family Halloween costumes.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)
The ninth sign of the zodiac is depicted as an archer for a reason. A Sagittarius aims high and shoots for their goals, as Astrology Zodiac Signs noted. So rest assured that whatever your family needs, your significant other will take it on as their personal objective.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)
According to Astrology, this sign is half-goat and half-fish because a Capricorn can succeed in any situation, on land or in the sea. Likewise, your baby's father will be the jack of all trades when it comes to figuring out fatherhood, even if he has to watch a few YouTube tutorials on how to install a baby car seat first.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)
Contrary to stereotypes perpetuated in film and television, it's not just the mother-to-be who experiences emotional roller coasters. Astrology Zodiac Signs noted that an Aquarian is sensitive and empathetic. The future father in your life will own his feelings and won't be shy about how your baby melts his heart.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20)
Since it's the final sign of the zodiac, it makes sense that a Pisces is the pinnacle of emotions, according to What's Your Sign. So while you're sharing a box of Kleenex with your partner, remember that he has a big heart and an even bigger capacity for caring for your new family.
