Since I was very young, astrology fascinated me. I loved getting those little horoscopes rolled up at the checkout counter when we went grocery shopping. I couldn’t wait to see what the stars had in store for me.
My interest continued as I grew and I wanted to learn more and more about how the stars influenced each person. It was amazing to see the differences in personalities and how astrology seemed to explain these traits. Of course, I realized there was more to us than just our Sun sign and dove deeper!
I have lots of various books on astrology and even worked with an astrologer (shout out to Soulshine Astrology) for a period of time putting together her beautifully designed charts for clients. I learned how a birth chart as a whole can give a much more specific picture of our inner desires, strengths and weaknesses. Thus beginning my journey to use this knowledge to better understand myself and my children.
Learning the nuances between each of my children and their signs helped me make sense of A LOT of situations. This resulted in changing up how I talk with each kid and how I help them work out problems between each other. And it has been amazing to see how they come together in play or just general connection.

How our Signs Interact
Four kids and four VERY different signs. Boy, was I in for a whirlwind with these personalities colliding and blending differently with each interaction.
Understanding more about their individual sign helped me see them in a new light. I became more patient and more understanding. Although I am still learning quite a bit daily – especially how my own sign interacts with each of my kids. It is a pivoting game as not one way of dealing with a kiddo is the exact same as another.
For example, here is a brief picture of our family.
Rational, orderly, and likes to know the plan details for everything. Health-conscious, he wants to master his hockey skills and enjoys his own space.
Full of energy, imaginative, and always ready for fun. A fierce defender of his family and friends, he is honing in on his entertainment skills.
Deeply caring and sensitive to others, but a force to be reckoned with if crossed. She is creative and enjoys understanding the world around her.
Independent, creative, and always finding solutions to problems. She follows the beat of her own drum but always loves the company of many.
Alyssa (Mom): Pisces
Empathetic, dreamy, and full of optimism. Curious of the inner and outer world around us. I love creating things and encouraging others to follow their dreams.
Joel (Dad): Scorpio
Full of conviction, quick witted and intuitive. He excels at digging deep into an issue and finding solutions. A sentimental soul with deep family and friendship bonds.
So what do my boys argue about the most? My older Virgo forgets his younger Leo brother doesn’t know as much as he does yet or he gets mad that Leo’s toys are all over the place. 🤷🏻♀️ Leo sometimes can’t fathom how seemingly unimaginative and unwilling to play his virgo brother is – it’s TRUE. My virgo wasn’t much for action figures or toy cars growing up.
On the flip side Leo will defend his brother without a doubt even if he caused virgo to get a stern talking to by the parental figures lol. 🤭 Virgo brother likes to help his little Leo get dressed and hair ready for school.
The girls are another story – one that will have to wait for future blog posts.
I plan to explore further on our YouTube channel – not just our own signs, but how they ALL the signs can interact with each other. Maybe you can learn more about yours as well. 🙂 Stay Tuned!
