Your little one’s zodiac sign can reveal a lot about their personality, traits and characteristics.

While it’s not scientifically backed, astrology fans can learn a lot about their bub by referring to their star sign.

Astrologist Sharon Knight reveals what your baby’s star sign means and how you can help to parent your little Libran or Capricorn.

Capricorn (22 December – 20 January)

If anyone has ever leaned over your baby’s pram and said they are an ‘old soul’, then your child is true to their star sign.

Capricorn children are incredibly thoughtful and a lot goes in, even though you might not get much of a reaction.

So don’t worry if your little one stares at you when you smile – rest assured it’s all being absorbed.

Aquarius (21 January – 19 February)

An Aquarius child realises early on that a big smile will distract mum and dad and allow them to get their own way.

They love movement and colour so a mobile over the cot will be a hit.

Older children don’t like to sit still for long, so potty training could be tricky. Teach new things in short, sharp bursts.

Both Aquarius bubs and little Librans love colour.

Pisces (20 February – 20 March)

Pisces babies are gentle souls. They don’t like loud noise and need plenty of security and hugs. Use a baby carrier to hold your Piscean close and choose smaller, calmer baby or toddler groups to attend.

If you’re expecting another baby, take extra time to help your toddler adjust. A new sibling could make your Piscean feel insecure so help them understand that a new baby won’t mean they are loved any less.

Aries (21 March- 20 April)

Aries children are fiery, excitable and need lots of stimulation and love.

With such inquisitive minds, they can quickly get frustrated.

Rather than getting them to focus on one thing for 10 minutes, provide several things to keep their attention.

Taurus (21 April – 21 May)

Taurean children love things that are nice to hold, so tactile textures such as velvet will make them happy.

Give your warm and loving Taurean child lots of cuddles as they need plenty of touch. Their nature is placid, unless you rush them.

Gemini (22 May – 21 June)

Gemini children are the most inquisitive of all the star signs and they will wander off in search of novelty.

They need a lot of mental stimulation, so join a local library and sign up for a music or movement class. They thrive on learning so give plenty of options for activities, then let them decide which one to do.

Cancer (22 June – 23 July)

The most family-focused of the star signs, a Cancerian baby will enjoy being swaddled as this makes them feel secure.

They are caring and will be aware of duty from a young age, which means they are a brilliant older sibling.

Cancerians love being helpful, so will thrive on being in charge of ‘tidy time’.

Leo (24 July – 23 August)

Leo children respond well to rewards, so a gold star will make them very happy!

Your little Leo needs to feel important, and in charge, so rather than telling them what to do make them feel like it’s their idea.

And – you probably already know this – they can be incredibly stubborn and will roar if they doesn’t get their own way, but hold your ground.

Expecting a Leo? Keep in mind your little one will love to feel important.

Virgo (24 August – 23 September)

Virgo babies love routine. This is great while they are young but as they get older encourage more flexibility and avoid an upset if things don’t run like clockwork. Of all the star signs,

Virgoans are the easiest to toilet train, as they’re fastidious and won’t like a dirty nappy. They love pretending so entertain with lots of role-play games as they grow into a toddler: a play doctor’s kit would be top of her wish list!

Libra (24 September – 23 October)

Air signs find it hard to sleep, so exhaust her physically and mentally in the daytime. Librans are very visual and love bright colours.

They are sociable and happy to be out and about. Normally placid, it’s usual to bounce quickly between being upset and being happy.

Scorpio (24 October – 22 November)

Your Scorpio is cautious, so always be encouraging. Your little one is a deep thinker and will have two modes of expression: crying and temper tantrums, or withdrawn and quiet.

They need security and can be distrustful of strangers. Your Scorpio will also need help learning to share.

Sagittarius (23 November – 21 December)

Sagittarians love lots of movement and being outdoors from a very young age, so take them out of the pram and, once they are toddling about, let them run outside as much as you can.

They are visual and adore colours and watching what’s going on. Of all the star signs, Sagittarians are the most sociable.
