When planning your future with your partner, the topic of having children is typically bound to come up at some point. It doesn't matter if you have unwavering faith in your significant other's potential parenting abilities or not, because (let's be honest) bringing a kid into the world is kind of a big deal. One of the more fun ways you can speculate about parenthood is as simple as looking toward the night sky. You might even be surprised to find what zodiac signs are most compatible for being great parents together.
Astrology and other mystic methods aren't necessarily an exact science, of course. But seeing what the stars have in store for you is an easy and lighthearted way to satiate your curiosity. You could chalk it up to coincidence, but there might be something to it when astrologers say that a Libra tends to be balanced or that an Aquarius has all the feels, for example. So what signs are a match made in parenting heaven? Check out what astrologers Nicolas Aujula and Suzie Kerr Wright have to say about what zodiac signs are most compatible for being great parents together.
Aries (March 21 to April 19)
"Aries and Leo would be the neighborhood fun couple," Kerr Wright says. "They're always on the go and up for any kind of wild adventure that kids just love." Just remember to take the time to recharge your batteries.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)
"Taurus' fixed nature is complimented by Leo's enthusiasm to lead the family pack," Aujula tells Romper. Though Taurus is often seen as stubborn, this is actually rooted in a deep sense of conviction. That's why the equally loyal Leo is such a great fit.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)
"Gemini brings creativity, they make wonderful teachers, and raise their children to question everything," Kerr Wright says. "Pisces is compassionate and can provide the balance needed to show their children the difference between thinking and feeling." When you join forces, you can create a well-rounded little person.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)
"Cancer's caring nature is complimented by Libra's need to create a harmonious family home," Aujula says. Though Cancers get a bad reputation for being crabby, they're simply being protective of their domain. These two signs will create a safe and sound environment for their child.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22)
Taurus and Leo makes a great match, but there's another good pick for a Leo... "Leo and Aries both think big and love surprises," Kerr Wright tells Romper. "Holidays and birthdays at their house would be major events." These two fire signs would have no problem keeping things lit with the kids.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)
"Virgo's practical approach is complimented by Sagittarius desire for adventure as a family unit," Aujula says. In parenting, just like with any great comedy duo, you need one person to play the straight-laced card while the other goes for the laughs.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)
"Libra's desire for balance is complimented by Capricorn's need for providing family security," Aujula says. Together, your kids will never question the solid foundation on which their family is built.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)
"Scorpio and Cancer make a phenomenal pair of parents," Kerr Wright tells Romper. "Both understand family comes first and are protective with a deep love." You and your partner have claws and stingers ready to strike anyone who would dare try to disrupt your family.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)
"Sagittarius' adventurous persona is complimented by Pisces' desire to nurture children," Aujula says. While you're busy plotting your family's next big trip, your partner will make sure all the logistics are taken care of, too.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)
"Pair up a Capricorn with a Sagittarius, two signs who are completely different, but would strike a good balance as parents," Kerr Wright says. "If these two can respect each other's differences, their children could benefit greatly from the blend of both perspectives." Isn't learning about compromise what parenting is all about anyway?
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)
"Aquarius' independent nature is complimented by Taurus' desire for steady family life," Aujula says. Air sign Aquarius is grounded by Earth sign Taurus and ends up making a great parenting power couple.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20)
"Pisces' emotional nature is complimented by Gemini's desire to create variety with children," Aujula says. Let's just say, there will never be a boring moment in your house, and luckily you two think that's a great thing.
