Momstrology: Parenting with Astrology

Capricorn Mother-In-Law + Cancer Daughter-In-Law

Where You Click

Cancer and Capricorn are opposite signs. Cancer is traditionally associated with the mother, Capricorn with the father. While your mother-in-law may not provide the warm-fuzzy vibes you’re jonesing for, she will be stable and consistent. These are qualities that you as a Cancer hold in high regard. A natural trust emerges between you two. As time goes on, you’ll be the one who helps your mother-in-law warm up and learn to appreciate the beauty of a good hug. 

You both believe in the power of a close-knit family. Capricorn is a hands-on mom who will be available to help out in times of need. Should grandchildren come into the picture, you’ll appreciate her supportive generosity. She’s the type of mother-in-law you can turn to when you need womanly advice–and she won’t blab to her son if you open up to her about something private. Her practical wisdom will help smooth you through any emotional bumps in the road.


Where You Clash

Both Cancer and Capricorn suffer from dark mood swings. When your fears collide with your mother-in-law’s pessimistic outlook a cloud of gloom may settle over the entire family. If you find yourselves discussing doomsday perspectives on the world for too long, change the subject fast or you can both get sucked into a downward spiral that lasts for days.

Cancer enjoys sweet indulgences–rich cakes, expensive bottles of wine, frilly couture dresses. Capricorn finds your style to be a bit over-the-top. Although your mother-in-law may pay a higher price for goods, she chooses her purchases with a different eye. She’s ruled by pragmatic Saturn and wants items of lasting value. Cancer is ruled by the Moon–your desires wax and wane on a daily basis. Your tendency to impulse shop can turn your mother-in-law cold. Some stern lectures may be headed towards you (and her son) about money management.
