Forecast for October 15-November 15
Aries: Knight of Cups
Offer your child the freedom to make her own choices with the belief that she will make the right decisions. Your child is entering an emotional phase and is extremely sensitive to your words and deeds. If you want to win her over, do so with love.
Taurus: 10 of Pentacles
This is a good time to teach your child financial literacy and independence. Explain the importance of saving, introduce her to the stock market and encourage her to build a mock investment portfolio. Motivate her to also start earning in small ways such as selling lemonade at a summer camp/carnival. Simultaneously you need to draw up a financial plan for her future education. Your child has capability to transform your family’s financial condition for the better.
Gemini: 6 of Cups
You need to spend more quality one-on-one time and bond with your child. She may not be the person she says and could be misleading you. Pay attention to the feedback of family and friends about her behaviour.
Cancer: King of Pentacles
Although you and your child aren’t on the same page, it’s important you understand that she is similar to you in more ways than you know. She is open to negotiation but avoid using sly tactics to discipline her, they will backfire.
Leo: The Emperor
Expect conflict situations with your child this month. But it’s better to walk away from the fight to maintain your cool, though it won’t be easy. Fights may escalate causing permanent damage to your relationship. Set aside your ego and let her win battles while you focus on winning the war.
Virgo: The Empress
Explain to your child to be herself and that she doesn’t need social validation. Appreciate her personality both physical and emotional and encourage her to develop her several intelligences. Her friends may be giving her a hard time. Help her edit her friends list.
Libra: The Chariot
Your child seems to want everything in life at speed of light. This attitude needs correction, if you don’t want to set her up for disappointments in later years. Counsel her to be patient and work hard to achieve her goals. Don’t spoil her.
Scorpio: 5 of Cups
The grass is greener where you water it. Stop admiring the abilities of other people’s children. Focus on your own. Every child is special and unique. Work with her to develop her interests and talents, and she will excel.
Sagittarius: Queen of Wands
Allow your child to be adventurous and experiment while you keep careful watch. Your parenting style is healthy and nurturing her all-round development. Remain on your path.
Capricorn: Queen of Cups
Refrain from emotionally manipulating your child. If she is driving you up the wall, acknowledge that the problem started with you. You need to be more accommodating and control your temper and mood swings.
Aquarius: The Devil
Don’t feel guilty about being too strict with your child. Parenting isn’t easy and children need to learn that actions have consequences. You’re preparing your child for life and you’re on the right track. But give her a breather every now and then.
Pisces: The High Priestess
Follow your intuition, and do what you feel is right. Your child has a better emotional connection with you than with your spouse. She needs your support as she is going through a rough patch. She is happy with you, when you’re around.
