Mother-Son Relationships for Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces Moms

Libra Mother (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)
You can teach your son a great deal about the fine art of diplomacy and how a little beauty and creativity go a long way. While you might resist the urge to firmly establish boundaries with your son when he's crossing yours or those of others, it's imperative for you to do so. If you keep people-pleasing without setting boundaries, your anger at being trespassed becomes twice what seems warranted.

Scorpio Mother (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)
Your passion for your children is not only compelling, but a force of nature. There should be no doubt in your son's mind that you love him and would fight to the death for him, but he may, at times, be confused by how intense you can be when you're angry or upset. Take a breath (or two) and attempt to look at things from his perspective more.

Sagittarius Mother (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)
Perhaps none of your son's friends will ever be able to "hang" as tough with him as you. You're the one who shows him how a real pal acts, whether it's in sports, watching TV or talking pop philosophy and psychology. However, he may feel drawn to compete with your prowess rather than contend for your love.

Capricorn Mother (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)
You represent the epitome of competence to your son, his ultimate standard for what a human being should be and strive for. However, your insistence on competence shouldn't come at the risk of holding back on your unconditional love. If he knows he has that regardless, there's nothing on Earth he won't do ... in honor of you.

Aquarius Mother (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)
Your son will love you for your quirkiness and originality. However, he may not always be sure about the connection he has with you, as you have so many connections -- to your friends, your charities, your causes and more. Be sure he knows he's a priority.

Pisces Mother (Feb. 19 to March 20)
Your devotion and attention to your son could be the stuff of legend. He definitely will learn that charity begins at home, and feel honored by your benevolence to just about everyone you meet. But be sure to establish boundaries for yourself and with him, or he'll learn that charity could be an unofficial license to be a doormat.
