Your child is susceptible to illness during this time. Prepare her for financially difficult times ahead. You also need to work on improving your relationship with her. Remember that parenting is about ensuring children feel loved, safe, comfortable and protected. There’s also a possibility of you becoming a parent again.
Taurus: 7 of Pentacles
You reap what you sow. If you aren’t happy with the way your child is developing, the answer lies in reflecting about how you’ve handled the world and people around you. Some of you might feel distant from your children. Instead of chasing after them, befriend them.
Gemini: The Star
It’s okay for your child to have a romantic crush on the opposite sex. Life needs to be a balance of everything. You don’t need to worry about it affecting her studies/ career. She will succeed in her education/career even if it isn’t the family legacy. Belittling her will cause permanent damage to your relationship with her.
Cancer: 8 of Swords
Non-corporal punishment is often necessary to check children’s irresponsible and foolish behaviour. It’s time to show who is the parent. This may make you feel horrible but it’s necessary, to ensure your child understands her responsibilities and duties.
Leo: 5 of Pentacles
Your child needs to be motivated and inspired. Help and counsel her to make the best choices. Assist her with homework. Opportunities are waiting for her as long as she’s willing to take them.
Virgo: 4 of Swords
The worst is over. You can finally rest now. Things will go smoothly for your child’s education, as long as you plan the applications and admission process carefully. You and your child need to be get organised and work systematically towards achieving your goals.
Libra: Queen of Swords
Talk to your child’s teachers, tutors etc, to understand her classroom behaviour and academic performance. You might be trapped in self-delusion about her. She may be very different from what she is at home.
Scorpio: Ace of cups
Spend some time alone with your child. Show her your fun side. Let her choose a family activity. Reward her with a gift she wants without her throwing tantrums for it. Work on building a loving bond with her.
Sagittarius: 8 of Cups
You seem disappointed with your child’s choices. Perhaps it’s time to take a more rational approach. Life cannot be quantified all the time. Resorting to blackmailing her will lead to broken bridges.
Capricorn: 3 of Cups
Friendships need boundaries. Ensure your child isn’t spilling too much information to outsiders about family matters, personal finances or career goals. Educate her about what should and shouldn’t be discussed with friends. Her naiveté may get you into trouble. Pay attention to the company she’s keeping.
Aquarius: Ace of Pentacles
Your child needs to believe in herself. She is tying herself down by indulging in negative behaviour. It’s time for a fresh start. Success is possible, only if she’s willing to grab opportunities and change her ways.
Pisces: The Moon
Whether it’s your child’s personal or career matters, just because you don’t know about them it doesn’t mean they don’t exist. There’s a lot brewing under the surface that you’re unaware of. Don’t be fooled by what you see. Approach your child with gentleness to avoid unnecessary conflict.
