Your #1 Resource for Planet-Informed Parenting
Aries: Fire signs burn strong this month, particularly around the new moon on October 14th. Like a beacon of light, your kid’s perfect costume will be clear to you then.
Taurus: Who gets the job done? Your kid! Since they’re always building all kinds of forts and contraptions anyway, why not give them a few extra tools?
Gemini: Your unique air sign has too many ideas to go completely store-bought – set them up with some darling accessories and allow them to create the rest.
Cancer: You know your darling child is always, well, in their feelings. Help them unlock a bit of confidence by dressing the part!
Leo: Bright and headstrong, your Lion-child will enjoy calling the shots with various tools. Is there anything cuter than a baby with a job?
Virgo: Even as a child, your little one is extremely grounded in their morality and values. Let them honor a character with the same alignments!
Libra: Halloween or not, your darling is a princess through and through. Set them up with sparkle and shine, and plenty of pink.
Scorpio: Your kid always goes against the grind, much like a certain character who eschewed typical stories and built one of her own.
Sagittarius: The Tower Princess is the only option for your centaur-child, because only a Sagittarius would leap from a turret to blindly pursue the adventure of a lifetime.
Capricorn: Your kid is classically intelligent, like a certain someone who knew when it was time to ditch her keepers and find a prince.
Aquarius: For your kid, it’s all about the color. Whatever they choose, it’s going to be bold, bright, and eye-catching! Perhaps The Fairest Princess will do just the trick…
Pisces: Could there be a more perfect costume for the fish-sign than a mermaid? If you’ve done that before, try other aquatic beings. Paper mache octopus, here you come!
More on Ragamuffin’s Parenting Horoscopes:
The last two decades have seen an unprecedented rise in conscious parenting. New approaches like Montessori, gentle parenting, and slow parenting have arisen as alternative options to the authoritarian style of yore. Additionally, the Internet has made it easier to share resources and learn from those who have “gone through it” before us. Of course, raising a child isn’t a one-size-fits-all deal. Most parents will tell you that their own approach includes a little of this, a little of that, and above all else adjustments for their particular kid’s needs. Enter: astrology.
While plenty of articles explain your own parenting style according to the zodiac, there’s currently very little on how to adapt that to your child’s individual needs. Starting in January 2023, Ragamuffin is offering monthly Parenting Horoscopes. By cross-referencing resources like Astrology Zone’s Susan Miller, the Astro Poets, and NASA’s Solar System Tracker, we’ll suggest planet-informed parenting tips adapted to each sign of the zodiac.
Remember, these signs are written with your child’s sign in mind. That said, feel free to read the entry for your own astrological sign and report the findings back to grandma. Whether you truly believe the stars have a say in our fate, or you’re just reading for fun, we hope you’ll get some good insights on how to raise individual humans of every disposition.
