Momstrology: Parenting with Astrology

Cancer Mother-In-Law + Libra Daughter-In-Law

Where You Click

Pretty women unite! Cancer and Libra are fashionistas who live by the principle of “when you look good, you feel good.” You love colorful clothes with a little bling. Neither of you minds dropping a neckline or raising a hemline for a sexy effect. Cancer will appreciate your taste, although you are a bit more decadent than she is. She’s always on the lookout for a great sale and can teach you how to look smashing on a small budget.

Cancer is a born nurturer who loves to cook and coo over her brood. Libra is the happy recipient of such gifts. Her worst fear is that her kids will get married and forget about her. Your willingness to drop by her house for those home-cooked meals (and bring her son along to boot) alleviates her insecurity. Welcome to the family.


Where You Clash

While you love to lounge, you’re not exactly the most fastidious housekeeper. In fact, Libras can be downright messy. This irks domesticated Cancers to no end. She won’t tolerate her son living in a “bachelor pad” after he’s married. She may come over with a bucket of cleaning supplies and scrub the place a couple times. Yes, she will expect you to watch and learn. Unless you want your reputation tarnished with the rest of the family (she’s gonna talk), study up or hire a housekeeper in secret to do the dirty work. 

You both love the finer things in life, but Cancer will never pay full price for her goods. Libras are the reason couture is so expensive: you’re willing to pay top dollar for luxury goods. Your mother-in-law may find your spending frightful and deliver lecture after lecture to her son about your materialistic ways. Conversely, you’ll wish she’d just butt out and stop being so cheap.
