Momstrology: Parenting with Astrology

by Felicia Bender, The Practical Numerologist

2If you have a Two Life Path child, here are some basics:

LIFE’S PURPOSE

To develop their sense of diplomacy, harmony, balance, cooperation, service to group dynamics, and giving/receiving unconditional love. Because what we’re here to do is never going to be the easiest thing for us to do, your child will have challenges and difficulties with developing and acting upon these very themes.

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW

Your child is here to be a peacemaker and serve the world in a loving and supportive way.

CHALLENGES

Children with a Two Life Path will be challenged with being over-the-top emotionally sensitive! Understand this about your Two Life Path child – they’re a walking emotional wound until they learn how to construct and act upon healthy emotional boundaries. And – as I’m sure you can understand – this ain’t easy! Your child’s gift is also their curse. They soak in everyone’s emotional “stuff” even though they don’t know it. So your child will come home from school and feel completely drained because of all the emotional baggage s/he’s carrying from the day.

TENDENCIES

Your Two Life Path child wants love, acknowledgement, and approval. You’ll have to work with them in these areas:

• Your child tends to need constant validation from everyone around them to the detriment of their healthy personal identity.
• They tend to get hurt so deeply that they’ll turn into the anti-Two Life Path and withdraw with resentment and act aggressively. This happens when they’re feeling emotionally damaged.
• Your child will struggle with being the ultimate “pleaser.”
• Your child will go through a period of time when they’re treated like a “doormat” until they can learn to stand up for themselves.

HOW YOU CAN SUPPORT YOUR CHILD

Here are a few ways that you can support your Two Life Path child to be the best they can be:

Allow your child to say “no.”

Your child is learning healthy emotional boundaries, so any encouragement to step out of the “pleaser” role is great practice for them. The Two Life Path is innately shy, so encouragement to say “no” and care for their own needs is crucial.

Encourage group activities.

Your child needs to feel as though they belong and are a contributing member to a group.
