Astrology is a wonderful guide for understanding your child. It’s also a great way to look at any issues or themes that might be highlighted throughout the year.

Look at the Sun sign of your child below and see what may be happening for him or her during the month of February. There are also a few tips for mums as to what you might also be experiencing during the second month of the year

Aries (20/3 – 20/4)

The month starts with your little Aries focused on his/her friends. It’s a great time to introduce your Aries child to a new group e.g. starting a team sporting activity or joining the school choir. From the 19th of the month, your Aries child will need some time out. Allow your little Aries the space to slow down and relax during this time. The Full Moon on the 15th will highlight your Aries Childs’ competitive nature. It also highlights the things that your Aries child finds fun & the way s/he expresses him/herself.

Aries mums will find that the first few weeks in February is a great time to join a new group. It’s also a great time to work on manifesting your wishes, hopes and dreams! The Full Moon will bring your children into focus. It will also highlight your creativity and self-expression.

Taurus (20/4 – 21/5)

The month starts with your little Taurus focused on one of their parents. They may also talk a lot about what they are going to do when they grow up!

As the month progresses, your little Gemini may change focus to goal setting. A parent may also become a focus.

S/he might be more secretive at this time.  Mercury will go direct on the last day of the month. The Full Moon on the 15th will highlight your Gemini child’s siblings and also communication.

Gemini mums may start February dreaming of travel – this is a great time to book a holiday. It’s also a good time to enrol in a course you’ve wanted to undertake.
