Astrology is often used to test romantic compatibility. But it can also give us an insight into all the different relationships we have in life. Among other things, there is the relationship you have with your mother. If you and your mother are often not at eye level, you may have incompatible zodiac signs. According to astrology, there are some mother-daughter pairs that are usually difficult to get along with and who do not get along well.
But how do the different zodiac mothers actually behave?
Each sign of the zodiac behaves differently in parenting. For example, mothers with fire signs are more action-oriented, can be loud and spirited, and their moods can change frequently. However, these mothers are also better at letting go of things and having fun much faster than other types.
The earth sign mothers tend to be more predictable and trustworthy. They value things like appearance and presentation. They tend to have a lot of rules and structure, but they are also great at making your day run smoothly.
Air sign mothers are constantly thinking and prone to overthinking things. They are usually quick to act and you can count on them to find solutions to any problem. On the other hand, watermarked mothers are the more emotional among the zodiac signs. They are very attentive to how their children are feeling, and they are also excellent empathetic educators for this reason.
But not every mother gets along well with her daughter!
Some zodiac types are just not as compatible as others. For example, if you are a fire sign, you may find a mother with an earth sign very restrictive for you. Because of this, many conflicts and disputes can arise.
These 7 mother-daughter relationships don’t get along well:
1. Sagittarius and Taurus
This is a pairing of fire and earth that may have difficulty getting along. The Taurus is predictable and safety minded, while the Sagittarius is adventurous and uninhibited. A Taurus daughter may lack the affection she needs from her Sagittarius mother to feel safe, while a Sagittarius daughter may feel the need to leave the nest much sooner than a Taurus mother thinks it is appropriate . Either way, Taurus may feel like they lack affection and appreciation whether they are the daughter or the mother in the relationship.
2. Aquarius and Virgo
Virgo and Aquarius may struggle to be on an equal footing. One of them is looking for approval while the other does not feel that it is necessary. The Virgo mother expects good behavior and a lot of hard work from her daughter, while the Aquarian daughter can be quite rebellious and likes to ignore the need for consent. The Virgo daughter, on the other hand, might feel the need to prove herself to her Aquarian mother and therefore be under great pressure. If this never happens, it can put a huge strain on their relationship.
3. Pisces and Leo
Lions are fire signs who love a lot of attention and lots of affection. Pisces, on the other hand, are easily overwhelmed by too much attention and need their time on their own. These two zodiac signs are as different as day and night. When Leo wants attention but Pisces want to be alone with their thoughts, it can lead to a lot of misunderstandings. Astrologically, these mother-daughter pairings may not be as compatible as others.
4. Aries and Virgo
Aries is a fire sign and Virgo is an earth sign. Therefore, it may not be easy for them to get along. Virgos prefer to wait until all conditions are perfect before taking action, although Aries will take the initiative and simply go out of their way to achieve what they want. An Aries mother can be very pushy with a Virgo daughter, while an Aries daughter can feel choked on her overly cautious Virgo mother.
5. Scorpio and Gemini
Gemini are air signs so they are all about logic and communication. Scorpios, on the other hand, are known to be the most intense of all watermarks. This mother-daughter relationship can therefore be challenging. Since Gemini are intellectual and prefer to keep things superficial while Scorpios are deep and emotional, there will always be friction between the two. When one person works with logic and the other works with emotion, it can be difficult for both of them to understand each other.
6. Cancer and Sagittarius
Cancers like being at home and they still happen to make the perfect educators while Sagittarius lives to be on the go. It is therefore very difficult for this combination to come up with a common denominator. Because Cancer is more emotional, it will potentially take Sagittarius’ need for freedom much more personally than other zodiac signs. It happens that he completely questions himself or his qualities as a mother or as a daughter.
7. Leo and Capricorn
Lions love to play, have fun, and look for ways to express themselves. With ibex, on the other hand, everything revolves around tradition and work. This difference can lead to a potentially challenging mother-daughter relationship. The Capricorn may feel a little too boring and conventional to the Leo, while the Leo may appear unrealistic and irresponsible to the Capricorn.
But are these mother-daughter relationships really hopeless?
Even if you and your mother have conflicting signs of the zodiac, you still shouldn’t bury your head in the sand. There is still the possibility of finding a middle ground.
Conflict arises because both signs require different things to thrive, which can lead to a profound misunderstanding of the other sign’s needs. So the key is to communicate clearly with each other and meet in the middle. When both signs develop an understanding of what the other needs, a common ground can be found.
