Momstrology: Parenting with Astrology

Leo Mother-In-Law + Virgo Daughter-In-Law

Where You Click

Virgo and Leo are nurturing (at times to a fault) and some might call you busybodies. No matter—you both want to be in the know about your family. How else can you support them if you don’t know what’s going on? This shared outlook on what it means to be a wife and mother keeps you close. Your mother-in-law will feel safe handing off her little boy to a together woman like you. 

You’re both sentimental and easily touched by heartfelt expressions like poems, cards, “thinking of you” phone calls, and even some chain e-mails. Leo may be a bit more effusive than you, but you’ll find it charming. Being in her presence helps you relax some of your OCD tendencies. She shows you that the world won’t fall apart if you make dinner an hour late sometimes. In turn, you can help her sharpen up her style a little. Take her for a mani-pedi and hair treatment at a sophisticated salon. A little polishing up will do her good.  

Where You Clash

Virgo wants to improve things, but first you have to analyze the flaws and possible pitfalls. Leo can’t stand talking about such negative things. Your mother-in-law wants to don the rose-colored glasses and pretend that everything is perfect. She’ll think you’re a Negative Nelly, you’ll think she’s The Queen of Denial. Trying to resolve family problems could be an exercise in frustration.

Leo’s over-the-top style grates on your practical Virgo nerves. Does everything have to be such a big production?! You prefer to keep things simple for the most part. Dealing with your mother-in-law’s playful energy can be as exhaustive as trying to papertrain a hyperactive puppy. There’s a frustrating role reversal here that makes you feel like the responsible mom.
