You have to look at all those Dads out there that REALLY DO show up well in their families. They signed up when they got married and it is at the very beginning of the marriage and having children that you can see the go-getters and let’s say shakers making it happen for their families. So how about we look at Dads from their Astrological signs and see the good and the bad sides of these men. Everything is subject to your opinion, of course.
Aries Dad (March 21- April 19)
If you do your very best (and YOU better) Dad will work all hours to provide the money for you to be the “star” of the team (or play or whatever). However, if you are less than stellar, you give this Dad any mouth… Run for the hills! We will save the bleep bleep bleeps that the “ungrateful” child is still listening to on the car ride home from the big game!
Taurus Dad (April 20 – May 20)
A new restaurant, a new recipe, and this Dad is all over it! He likes to feed the crowd and is the stable man in the storm. But you stand up and say no… that don’t fly with this Dad! You better have ONE good reason or you will be in sitting in the SIN BIN for a while!
Gemini Dad (May 21 – June 20)
On the one hand, this Dad will be playing the video games and encouraging his child to “go crazy” artistically and then when the chips go flying because the child is in trouble (and they will get in trouble!), Dad will be contradicting his own discipline rules because his child is crying (“Fake” tears: this kid knows how to turn them on and off.)
Cancer Dad (June 21 – July 22)
This is THE Dad! He will carry his kids, read to them, and just be a great presence for them. Yet when he is set off he can be nasty and if he doesn’t like a group of friends, he will demand the child to stop hanging with them. A little too much smothering too!
Leo Dad (July 23 – August 22)
Oh, this Dad loves his kids and makes sure to let everyone know how great they are at (fill in the blank)! So, he is expecting them to live up to his kingly expectations and he snarls if there is sass but usually folds to his children’s whims.
Virgo Dad (August 23 – September 22)
The Virgo Dad expects his children to look clean and neat when they are out in public (don’t you even think about spitting up on his new shirt!) He worries over the slightest issues and just tries using guilt if the children oppose him.
Libra Dad (September 23 – October 22)
This Dad just likes to have peace in his home and likes to see his kids be themselves so they can “find themselves.” But he can give as good as his kid can when it comes to sass and if need be the Libra Dad may try to put his two cents when none is needed.
Scorpio Dad (October 23 – November 21)
This Dad always “knows” when their children (even when they aren’t in the room) are up to something! They really have a sixth sense about their clan. Yet watch out if anyone badmouth or tries bullying their child! That person is going down like a house of cards!
Sagittarius Dad (November 22 – December 21)
This Dad loves to be out and about adventuring whether in “Sherwood Forest” or in a “Galaxy Far, Far Away” with his kids. Life is SUPPOSED to be fun! However, this Dad can really get on their children for being a whiner and is completely inconsistent in grounding his kids!
Capricorn Dad (December 22 – January 19)
This Dad is the ultimate planner! Before the child is born, he or she already has a trust fund and applications to all the Ivy League schools. Also, this is not going to be the screamer Dad. The child will just get the “stare” and “are you done?” look if they get upset in front of Dad!
Aquarius Dad (January 20 – February 18)
This Dad is fun and will still want to climb into the tree house with his kids and dress “young” even as he ages. Yet this Dad can be unattached or “not get involved” when the going gets tough.
Pisces Dad (February 19 – March 20)
This Dad loves to see their children be creative to show off their talents. Yet they are sometimes not “seeing” when their kids are “out of control” in public and so they are yelling at them to “behave” or they just let them act out and ignore all the glaring adults!
Dads usually don’t get enough credit for all their responsibilities and contributions to running a household these days. It is with love and a huge thank you for being part of YOUR children’s lives whether it is in your home full or part-time, or you are a mentor to a child. You have NO IDEA the impact you make to them every day!
Thank you and Happy Father’s Day.
