Momstrology: Parenting with Astrology

Gemini Mother-In-Law + Virgo Daughter-In-Law

Where You Click

You’re both health nuts who love to explore the latest holistic trends in body care. Swap organic soup recipes, take a Pilates class, get her an appointment with your Rolfing practitioner. Let her give you references too. She’s got her finger on the pulse of this world.

Gemini and Virgo are both ruled by Mercury the information-gatherer. Clipping articles from newspapers, memorizing trivia and poetry, poring through books—and possibly even writing them: these are hobbies you share. Your signs are both known for gossiping, so sharing news from the family grapevine could bring some guilty pleasure to you both. Planning family parties could bring out a chance to collaborate creatively. You both love to decorate and have a definite flair for the details. It’s a great partnership so long as you divide up duties clearly. Pick a theme and a color scheme so you stay on the same page.  


Where You Clash

Neurotic much? Your Gemini mother in law beats you hands-down when it comes to obsessing. Speculating about your minor aches and the downturn of the economy may have been favorite subjects of yours…until now. With Gemini, it will turn into dueling diatribes that could last for days. Be warned: her pain is always worse than yours, and the conversation won’t end until you give her verbally acknowledge this “fact.”

Her mystical know-how is interesting up to a point. After that, you just wish she’d come back down to earth. She often lacks the practical streak that Virgo is famous for. Conversely, she’ll wish you could loosen up a little. What’s the big deal if the kids come home an hour late? She finds your “play by the rules ” style of parenting to be too strict. She may intervene, causing drama when you’re trying to teach the kids respect.
