Zodiac signs can — potentially — tell you a lot about people. They can be revealing when it comes to likes and dislikes, compatibility, personality traits, and more. While some people may choose not to buy into it and dismiss it as bunk since it's definitely not science, it's hard to argue that there are some serious coincidences with what your zodiac sign can tell you. Your mom's sign can tell you a lot about her, as well. It can even explain the best and worst personality traits of your mom, based on her zodiac sign.
Relationships can sometimes feel confounding. Why do you and your mom get along like the best of friends, while she and your sibling can hardly stand to spend any time together? Of course, that could have more to do with events that have transpired over the years, but, ultimately, there's a lot can be explained by personality traits and zodiac sign compatibility. If you're looking to better understand the relationship you share with your mom — or how to interact with her better — you need to know about how her zodiac sign influences her personality. Greater understanding could mean a better — or even better — relationship with her in the long run.
Aries (March 21 to April 19)
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and represented by a ram. According to Astrology, those born under Aries are often go-getters, the first to begin something, but rarely follow through and finish it. Additionally, as Astrology noted, they can be impulsive and blunt, and because they're ruled by Mars, they can also be aggressive. These moms can be great leaders, but they also might hurt some feelings along the way.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)
The second zodiac sign is Taurus, or the bull. Like bulls, a stubborn Taurus mom will not back down, even if there's every reason to do so, as noted by What's Your Sign. They also often initially look out for themselves, which can be sometimes be difficult on those in their lives. Additionally, according to Astrology, those born under Taurus can be a bit materialistic, short-tempered, and argumentative, which can lead to fights that might be a little confusing to those around them.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)
People born under Gemini are often superficial and inconsistent, as noted by Astrology Answers. Inconsistency can often strain relationships, especially those between a parent and a child. Gemini can also be indecisive, going back and forth between one thing and another, according to Astrology. Because they're so logical, they can come off as cold, which can also impact their relationships with others and cause difficulties.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)
The fourth zodiac sign is Cancer, symbolized by a crab. Because they're ruled by the moon, Cancers can be moody, according to What's Your Sign. Not only that, but those born under Cancer can be emotionally manipulative and pouty if things don't work out the way they'd like, as noted by Astrology. They can also be vindictive. These traits can absolutely take a toll on those around them, causing hurt feelings and difficulty getting along.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22)
Leos are lions. According to Astrology Answers, moms born under Leo can be possessive and egotistical, which can be difficult to live with. Additionally, as noted by What's Your Sign, Leos are often opinionated and bossy. Though these traits can be positive in moderation, you might sometimes feel like your opinions and wishes are being smothered.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)
According to Astrology, Virgos can be extremely picky and sometimes critical. Of course, that's sometimes very necessary, but it can feel impossible to live up to their high standards. They can also over-think things and be a bit self-centered. Over-thinking can, to a point, be quite helpful as it lets them weigh all the potential options, but it can be difficult for others in their lives to put up with.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)
Libras, like some other zodiac signs, have a tendency to be indecisive and manipulative, according to Refinery29. Manipulation can make people feel hurt, betrayed, and worthless, which undoubtedly would have an effect on a mom's family and friends. They can also be un-opinionated, which can frustrate those around them. According to Astrology Answers, Libras can also be lazy. Not ideal.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)
According to Astrology, those born under Scorpio are self-promoters and can be very overbearing if you don't agree with their agenda, which can leave you feeling undervalued (or worthless entirely). They're also often secretive, which can cause hurt feelings if taken the wrong way. Scorpios, like the scorpions by which they're symbolized, can be short-tempered and vengeful, putting a lot of pressure and strain on relationships.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)
According to What's Your Sign, those born under Sagittarius can be scared of commitment and impatient. A Sagittarius can also be irresponsible and reckless, as noted by Refinery29. Speaking as a Sagittarius, not good. Not good at all.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)
If your mom was born under Capricorn, she might be inflexible and demanding, according to the previously-mentioned article from Astrology Answers, which you likely already know. Capricorns, symbolized by goats, can also be unforgiving if you don't share their ambitions, making them occasionally difficult to get along with, noted Astrology. They also can find it difficult to express their emotions, which can be difficult on children and partners, among others.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)
According to What's Your Sign, those born under Aquarius can be lazy. Additionally, Refinery29 suggested that Aquarians can also be detached, irrational, and idealistic. If your mom is irrational or detached, you know from experience how difficult that can be on the relationship you share with her, and while idealism can be good, if it runs rampant, it can sometimes be frustrating for those around her.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20)
Pisces, the fish, is the final sign in the zodiac. Those born under Pisces sometimes take on others' burdens, according to Astrology, which can wear them down. They also can get lost in their dreams, making them a little flighty. They can get pessimistic and procrastinate if things don't seem to be going their way and are extremely sensitive.
While your mom undoubtedly has many good qualities, her worst personality traits based on her zodiac sign can wear on your relationship. Knowing what those qualities are, however, might help you understand and even better relate to her.
