Organized finances can be pretty attractive.
People fall in and out of love every day.
In astrology, there are traits in zodiac signs that when they meet the right person, it’s natural that they would fall in love and get married.
As the old saying goes you don’t get to choose your family. We all just sort of end up where the universe put us.
Every family is different and they all have their quirks and dysfunctions and then, of course, there’s always that one family member.
As kids we get a front row seat to a special kind of dysfunction, it’s called our parents’ marriage. One moment they backing each other up teaming up against you, that little thing they like to call “a united front” and the next minute they’re not on speaking terms. Suddenly you’re the new message delivery system.
Living under the same roof also gives you the backstage pass you never wanted. Watching your parent’s ping-pong through life can sometimes make you wonder why they ever got married in the first place.
Husbands and wives who spend year after year together inevitably wind up noticing things about each other. This can run the gamut between little wonderful things and great big annoying things.
You’re living there too, so most likely you’ll notice them as well. You may look at one of your dad’s annoying little habits or even what you may see as a big character flaw and wonder why your mom choose to marry him and chooses not to get a divorce?
What was it about him that made her decide that this was what she wanted for the rest of her life. I mean, that’s a long time.
The thing is, you know your parents in a totally different way, but they’re people too. At one point they were just two people, not your parents.
You can’t help but look at them and wonder what drove their thought process and decision making when they were young free and unburdened by life. What made your mom hitch her wagon to your dad? Maybe his horoscope sign can help unravel the mystery using astrology.
ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
If your dad is an Aries, chances are your mom fell in love with his fun-loving wild side. Aries are super fun to be around and they put in the work to keep the flame alive. Monotony is their kryptonite so when it comes to marriage Aries will never fall into a rut. Maintaining excitement is one of the keys to a long and happy marriage.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)
Taurus is loyal and hard-working and that could very well be what attracted your mom to your dad. Taurus, also have lofty goals, they tend to want to climb the ladder of success and in a long-term relationship they will bring their mates along for the ride. Your mom may have also surmised that your dad likes to stick to his routine, he’s dependable, stable and home every night for dinner. Sounds like quite a catch.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)
Gemini makes me wonder who chose who. Did your mom choose your dad because he’s a witty and intelligent sweet-talker or did your dad snag your mom with his eloquence and flattery? This one may be tough to decipher but no matter which you spin it, your dad has a way with words. His eloquence and charm landed you the best mom
CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
Chances are your mom chose your dad because he’s a big ol’ sweetheart. Cancer men care about their partners feeling and they try their very best to make them feel comfortable. They have lovable personalities which can be quite attractive.
LEO (July 23 – August 22)
Your mom most likely chose your dad because of his sparkling personality. Leo’s are the entertainers of the zodiac wheel, they are the life of the party and everyone wants to be near them. If your dad is a Leo your mom chose to be blessed with his charisma til death do them part.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
Most likely if your dad is a Virgo, your mom chose him because he wouldn’t be a messy housemate. Virgos are notoriously neat and organized, their finances are in check and there’s a meticulous plan in place for the disposable income. Basically, your mom knew that the mortgage would be paid on time and she would never have to argue with him about where his dirty socks go. Check and mate.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)
If your dad is a Libra then you may have noticed that he has an uncanny knack for making everyone around him feel comfortable, yes, even your grandma. Libras are kind, sweet and friendly to everyone they meet. Your mom choosing to spend her life with someone like that is a no-brainer.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)
Scorpios are loyal, passionate and determined. They are steadfast in their commitments especially their relationships. Your mom most likely chose your dad because he made her feel as though the sun rises and sets with her, it’s kinda romantic, no?
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)
Your mom’s attraction to your dad is most definitely his sense of adventure. Sagittarius men are the wanderlusts of the zodiac wheel. They are intelligent and continually seek to learn about the world around them. Their innate curiosity and their desire to see the world around them means there’s always something new around the corner.
CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)
If your dad is a Capricorn then your mom most likely saw the twinkling of a family in his eyes. Capricorns are great providers. They are reliable and hard-working, if that isn’t marriage material, I don’t know what is.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)
There is never a dull moment with an Aquarius. Most likely it was the fun-loving, always down for anything side of your dad that won your mom over. Aquarians are great problem solvers who also have good social skills. A good marriage always needs a problem solver.
PISCES (February 19 – March 20)
If your dad is a Pisces then chances are he treated your mom as though she hung the moon and that’s why she chose to marry him. Pisces are excellent listeners with a sweet disposition. They tend to make their mates feel like they are the center of the universe, that’s enough to make any woman swoon.
