These days, life has grown increasingly chaotic and challenging, effectively putting an end to traditional lifestyles all over the world. The effects of this can be seen quite clearly in our personal lives – negative patterns, messy situations, and complicated family bonds. For those wishing to resolve such issues, here is a family zodiac guide to help you understand the dynamics between individuals and their astrological signs.
Family dynamics work in mysterious ways. Many had to come to terms with this when they were isolated from their families for extended periods of time – not something many of us had ever done before.
If you too find yourself stuck in unending cycles of family-related conflict and would like an insight into how to set personal boundaries and coexist with similarly dissimilar people, read on!
Navigating Family Dynamics with the Zodiac Guide
Since many of us turn to the stars when all else has failed, here is a zodiac guide you can use to chart your way better and navigate the energies within your home. If we agree that astrology and the seasons can influence our lives, we can be sure that the stars influence our family dynamics.
The four elements that are responsible, in influencing the motivation and temperament of all individuals, include – Fire, Air, Water and Earth.
Fire Family Zodiac Signs
Fire signs hold highly-motivated and passionate individuals who have a tendency to turn volatile if threatened.
Sagittarius – Highly-independent and adventurous, this family member often seems to be the life of any party. They take the lead in planning impromptu brunches and trips, and joining kids in their chaotic play activities. Sagittarius family members are known for their constant stream of high energy and recklessness. Recall a member of your family who is like that and he probably is a Fire sign, if not a Saggi.
Leo – Leo is the proud family member who can be a solid supporter and someone you can rely on, so try to get into his or her good books. Leos are affectionate and engage in displaying their love in material and other ways – often without expecting anything in return. That cousin who showers you with expensive gifts at every chance he gets. We bet he’s a Leo!
Aries – This sign does not shy away from attention. You may spot an Aries in your family getting agitated over a board game or it could be that cool dude who encourages you to take risks and test your luck. They are youthful and spontaneous but may lack maturity in certain situations. So if you know a full-grown Arien, acting like a teenager, you now know why! If you want to know more about this specific fire sign, consider an Aries tarot card reading for more information on your family member!
Air Zodiac Signs in the Family
If your family members belong to Gemini, Libra or Aquarius signs, you are lucky! They are open-minded and highly-independent.
Aquarius – These could be the somewhat eccentric members of your family who you don’t necessarily fit into the usual crowd. Ingenious, creative, independent and unique – these individuals have no problem breaking free from traditional norms and structures in achieving what they want. They may seem weird and unconventional but they are fun. As a family member, they hold strong values and do not compromise on those easily – a rather non air-like quality.
Libra – Cheeky, light-hearted members who do not like confrontations and conflicts. Libra will go to far extents to avoid arguments with family members. This often comes across as being popular and social – the one who likes to have a good time! They are optimistic and make great mentors and advisors for children and teenagers. The ideal aunt or uncle in the family who knows what to say to make you feel better. Know anyone like that?
Gemini – Gemini is different as a friend compared to a family member. Sounds like the famous two-faced story associated with Gemini, doesn’t it? The fact is that Gemini as a buddy can be an exciting, rule-breaking rebel. But as a family member, all that Gemini wants is a big family and everyone having fun, meeting and socializing. Gemini need to be constantly in motion, making the best-laid plans for the entire family to enjoy. If you have a Gemini in the family, you probably have experienced many well-planned days of family togetherness and revelry!
Water Family Zodiac Signs
Intuitive and emotional, water signs depend heavily on their instincts. They can recognize the pain of others effortlessly.
Pisces – Probably the most perceptive of all 12 signs, Pisces loves the mystics and could be the one who hands you a healing crystal on a special occasion! They provide an excellent shoulder to lean on and Pisces is a family member that you can 100% rely on, especially for your emotional problems. But they are sensitive, so you need to be careful with how you phrase your words around Pisces. Knowing that a member is a Piscean, and investigating further via the study of symbolic numbers, by reading about their birth date, will give you a more detailed insight into these individuals, as they can be mysterious.
Cancer – The quintessential paternal sign. These members are highly-expressive of their emotions, and very protective of the ones they care about. It could be the sibling or cousin you can depend on to hold your hair back after a drink too many, or the one who insists on a text, once you reach home safe after an outing. The recurring number of 444 stands for a vibration of Angelic protection and is similar to the supportive energy that a Cancerian provides.
Scorpio – A complex sign, known for its depth, intimidation and blow-hot, blow-cold nature. The Scorpio members in your family will tend to spend a large portion of their time in private confined spaces.. Scorps don’t connect easily but when they do, you can be assured, it’s for life. They express themselves selectively and take their time on most decisions. But once they are convinced, they are the most reliable and loyal people in your family. Sound like anyone you know?
Earth Zodiac Signs and the Family
Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn are earth signs characterized by their grounded and pragmatic view of life.
Taurus – Taurus is arguably one of the most reliable earth signs. They know how to maintain and nurture relationships, even at the cost of limited communication or confrontations. They are wise and they like to bring the family together in a mutually beneficial manner. They are good with children and are able to set routines, offer guidance and calm down young ones with their cool demeanor. In truth, Taurus finds spiritual harmony in being a parent, and deeply value family life.
Virgo – This is the silent one guiding the discussion when a family argument has broken out. They keep calm in the face of adversity and polish their perfectionist skills by making sure that everyone in the room is comfortable with the other. Virgo is somewhat predictable which makes this sign dependable.
Capricorn – Capri makes plans, like Gemini does. However, the plans made by a Capricorn family member get into every detail with minute-to-minute travel itineraries! They are good with people and excellent in professional scenarios. This can make Cappy a workaholic but they have the time to listen and offer solutions to family members. They just want everyone to be comfortable.
So the next time you are at a family picnic or dinner, analyze your family members based on family zodiac signs. Talk about these with them and initiate a fun discussion on this topic. Laughter always diffuses family complications and changes entire dynamics!
