Written in the stars -What does your zodiac sign say about your parenting?

I was obsessed with everything to do with my star sign as a teenager.

I had books on it, star sign keychains and necklaces, I couldn't get enough of the stuff.

Our zodiac signs can apparently tell us a lot about our personalities and what careers we are best suited to, but they can also indicate what kind of parent that we will become.

Wonder what your zodiac sign says about your style of parenting? Have a look at these predictions.

Aquarius (Jan. 21-Feb. 19)

People with this star sign are known for being innovative and open-minded and when it comes to parenting you're no different.

Aquarian parents like to do things their own way and think outside the box when it comes to cool and unusual ways to spend time with your kids.

Parents born under this sign are deeply connected with what they feel is right and wrong and use this intuition to help guide their children through life.

Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20)

Pisceans are empathic and adaptable to whatever life throws at them, which is pretty handy when you're a parent.

Your compassionate nature means sometimes you find it hard to be a disciplinarian.

That being said, your deep bond with your child generally means you can gauge what the problem is and easily calm the situation.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Mums and dads of this zodiac sign are extremely determined and once their mind is made up, that's it.

While your kids might hate this trait now, as it means there is no wiggle room with the rules, they will appreciate the stability when they are older.

Arian parents like to do A LOT and you're probably the head of every parent's group.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Is it ever OK to go behind your child's father's back?

Taureans are regarded as hard workers who you can always rely on, but while you work hard you also like to play hard.

This sign loves luxury and having the finer things in life and when it comes to your children there is no exception.

You strive to make sure that your child will always have the best of everything and work hard to provide the best future possible for them.

Gemini (May 21-June 21)

This sign is considered to be energetic, sociable and the life and soul of any party.

Being the twin sign is a great attribute as a parent as it means you can play both good cop and bad cop.

Your children know that even though you can be strict you always have an incredibly playful side and your communicative skills mean that they know they can always turn to you for advice.

Cancer (June 22-July 22)

Kindness and devotion are two words that are often associated with this summer sign.

These are traits that you will carry into the way that you parent.

Always available for a hug and a chat, you feel completely in tune with your child at all times and can sometimes tell when they're in distress even when they are away from you.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Leos love excitement and being the centre of attention. They are also extremely proud and this pride they willingly share with their children.

If you fall under this fire sign then you will probably instil passion and a need to succeed in all your children.

While you want your child to be successful in life, you really don't mind what path they follow as long as they're happy...and you get some bragging rights of course.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

This sign is known for being practical and loyal, both great traits when guiding the moral compass of your children.

Virgo parents are organized and there is not one question that you don't have the answer to.

Because of this you are probably your child's best friend and will always be their safety net in life to fall back on.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Charming and diplomatic, the Libra parent is the epitome of level-headedness.

The ultimate problem solver, you are a pool of wisdom that your child can always pull from in their time of need.

Your need for order can sometimes mean you take on too much, but your natural tendency for balance usually helps everything fall back into place.

Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22)

Scorpios tend to be extremely focused and ambitious and are known for being the tough cookie of the zodiac.

While this means you hold your children to high standards, it also means that your child knows they can turn to you if they find themselves being bullied and you will jump to their defence in a second.

When it comes to this sign no one messes with baby bear without having to go through mama or daddy bear first!

Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 22)

This sign is known for being generous and straightforward.

You pull no punches when it comes to parenting and always tell it like it is, which means your children always know where they stand with you.

Your generous nature, on the other hand, means your kids will never go without, but you often forget to but a little treat for yourself.

Capricorn (Dec. 23-Jan. 20)

Capricorns are dependable and resourceful, which comes in very useful when you're a parent.

Your sensible nature means you're a no-nonsense parent, but while you may be strict sometimes, you are always the first person your child runs to in a predicament.

Your reliable nature means you're probably the parent that runs the carpool to school and organises the summer project as you are well regarded and trusted by other parents.
