Warning: Long post!

There are several ways to look at how you can parent your child in astrology. This post will mainly focus on influences in the Houses, rather than the planets, even though the rest of your chart is very important to look at.

You may have interceptions in your Houses, to where these descriptions will not apply. If that is the case, then the descriptions below will be altered in a sense that there is an imbalance in a certain sign, and with the imbalance, there can be trouble or talent. Asking an astrologer to analyze those Houses will give you a better idea.

If you look at the signs ruling over each house, you will find that the sign at the 4th House will be opposing the sign at the 10th House, and will also neighbor the sign at 5th House. The sign at the 5th House will be inconjunct to the sign at 10th House, which will combine common elements between the two signs either harmoniously or disharmoniously, depending how you choose to channel that energy. The conflicting energies from the 5th and 10th House can also show the choices and factors that can play whether you want to have children or not at all. It is however, entirely possible to work with both energies.

Aries in the 4th + Taurus in the 5th + Libra in the 10th: Raising children for charm and beauty from a childhood of volatile conflict – With Aries in the 4th House, you were raised to where you were encouraged to be independent, assertive, and courageous so that you could willingly do things on your own. However, in your childhood, you may feel that your family was volatile and overly aggressive due to numerous arguments, and maybe even violence. With that in mind, with Taurus in the 5th House, you ideally want to raise your children in a comfortable, safe environment with little to no conflict. However, a strong theme of stubbornness and persistence will remain from your childhood to raising your children. With Libra in the 10th House, you may try to avoid arguments and instead, encourage diplomatic relations in the family, since you weren’t granted as much peace as you liked in your childhood. You ideally want a transition from the masculine, aggressive, Martian childhood you had, to a relaxing, beautiful Venusian upbringing for your children. While your ideal parenting is comfortable and perhaps visually appealing, there can be a lack of substance and growth due to the comfort provided. With Aries and Taurus ruling the 5th and 10th House, the focus of your new family will be comfort, peace, and beauty, in both an internal and external sense. However, there can be a struggle combining such elements because there can be a problem of whether you would rather implement comfort and strong values within your family, or go out and communicate justice and compromise with others outside your family, since you may not have been granted both things in your childhood. This struggle can determine whether you would want to have a family or to go into the world to pursue what you’ve lacked.

Taurus in the 4th + Gemini in the 5th + Scorpio in the 10th: Raising children for knowledge and power from a childhood of beauteous shallowness – With Taurus in the 4th House, you were raised to where you were encouraged to make yourself comfortable, have strong values, and look presentable to others. However, in your childhood, you may feel that your family lacked communication, fun, and mental stimulation.

However, a strong theme of being skilled in manipulating your physical and abstract surroundings with talent will remain from your childhood to raising your children. With Scorpio in the 10th House, you may try to dig and stimulate needed arguments and strengthen your relationships through intimacy, since you felt that your relationships in your childhood were shallow. You ideally want a transition from the calm, but somewhat meaningless childhood you had to an intimate, important, and deeply mental stimulating upbringing for your children. While your ideal parenting is fun and dynamic, there can be a lack of stability due to the strong focus on abstract (thoughts and emotions) rather than physical concepts. With Gemini and Scorpio ruling the 5th and 10th House, the focus of your new family will to consistent have mentally stimulating and intimate interactions in both an internal and external sense. However, there can be a struggle combining such elements because there is a problem of whether you would rather implement intimacy and secrets within your family, or go out and communicate and disclose your thoughts to others outside your family, since you may not have been granted both things in your childhood. This struggle can determine whether you would want to have a family or to go into the world to pursue what you’ve lacked.
