How To Know If He's A Mama's Boy, According To Astrology

There’s no bond stronger than what these zodiac signs have with their moms.

Mama's Boy Zodiac Signs

Being a mama’s boy might seem great if you’re the one getting all the love and attention, but to everyone else, it just looks like you don’t know how to grow up — plus, it’s kind of creepy.

Not many women like men who are mama's boys. But for some zodiac signs, the mother-son bond is so close, it’s almost impossible to emotionally detach from their moms, (hence their intimacy issues). 


It seems like these zodiac signs refuse to take on the responsibilities that define what it means to be an adult, not to mention that it seems to make his mama happy doing for him.

Why? Because they’re so used to being spoiled all the time that the thought of being on their own is the worst thing that could ever happen to them.



Some mamas boys are formed this way — when a kid grows up and doesn’t want to lose all the perks he gets from his doting mom — and others are created by the doting moms who enable this type of behavior in their sons.

So, not only does she treat you like a king, but she also does your laundry whenever you’re home and she makes you food all day every day. How sweet.

If you couldn’t catch the sarcasm just then, you may just be a mama’s boy.

Just like when you’re deeply in love with someone and you can’t tell that she’s the loudest chewer on planet Earth because you can see right past that (or hear, as it were), being a mama’s boy usually isn’t very evident to the mama’s boy because he’s so smitten with his mom.


But, thankfully for all those out there considering dating a guy who can’t stop talking about his mom whenever you go out, there are telltale signs that your relationship is doomed for intimacy issues.

You are NEVER going to be number one in his heart, no matter how hard you try.

For one, he seemingly can’t do basic chores like washing the dishes or doing the laundry.


And while it’s convenient that his mom volunteers to do it for him when he visits, that seems to be the only time his clothes ever get washed.

For another, he gets crazy defensive whenever someone tries to bust him for being a mama’s boy or, worse, ragging on his mom.

And forget about keeping secrets in your relationship; if he’s a mama’s boy, then every fight, comment, and yes, even parts of your sex life is something that she probably knows all about. Every intimate detail of your love life will be hers to know and keep, too.

Scary, but that’s the price you pay for dating a mama’s boy. Don’t worry, though, you’ll never replace her so you can almost always guarantee that you’ll break up eventually… too harsh?

My point is, zodiac signs who are mamas boys are almost as hard to deal with as their moms.

And some zodiac signs just can’t help themselves when it comes to this weird infatuation/love affair/role model thing.

And if you’ve ever met any one of these three astrological signs, then you could probably safely say that yes, they are definitely mamas boys. If you decide to date them, just be warned.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Gemini Zodiac Sign Mama's Boy Astrology

Gemini LOVES being a mama’s boy, even if he never admits it out loud. There’s just something so comforting about always having someone there to help you out whenever you need it (or just don’t want to do something yourself) that he adores.

Plus, the fact that Gemini is basically already a man-child means he never has to change how he acts because he knows that his mom already loves him for who he is.

Obviously, Gemini can barely choose between a sandwich and a salad for lunch, so he loves the fact that he can run all of his decisions by his mom first.

Not only does this save him the embarrassment of making a wrong decision ever, but it also means he never has to grow up because mom will take the reins on the heavy stuff (maybe that’s what made him unable to be decisive in the first place?).

But while he can’t decide what he wants for lunch, he will fight you until he’s blue in the face on the opinion that she can do no wrong because mother always knows best.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancer Zodiac Sign Mama's Boy Astrology

Cancer is a big ol’ softie who not only loves all of the attention he gets from his mom but also loves the fact that she still babies him and fusses over him.

Cancer feels like no one will spoil him like she still does, whether that’s giving him “gas money” every time he visits or making meals for him so he doesn’t have to cook dinner during the week.

If that isn’t enough, Cancer still depends on his mom for basic adult things; but will deny it all if you ask him why he never seems to do his own laundry. But laundry is only the half of it — paying bills, washing dishes, cleaning the apartment.

She might not physically do any of these things, but you can bet that she tells him how to write a check or how to get dried food stains off plates.

And for as long as his dating life lasts, he will always secretly wish his girlfriends were more like dear old mom (and won’t settle down until he finds someone just like her).

CAPRICORN (Dec 20 - Jan 19)

Capricorn Zodiac Sign Mama's Boy Astrology

Capricorn might seem like a “family man” to some people, but to anyone with eyes and ears (and anyone who’s met his mom), he’s just a straight-up mam’s boy.

He uses the excuse that family is everything whenever he needs to ditch friends to help his mom, but in reality, Capricorn would rather just hang out with her instead because she never judges and she made cookies.

Capricorn spends so much time with his mom — going shopping with her or coming over to mow her lawn — that he basically lives with her.

Don’t listen to him when he tries to defend himself, either, because everyone knows how hard it was for him to move out in the first place (he probably even shed a few tears).

What’s worse, though, is the fact that he tells his mom EVERYTHING; who he’s dating and how many fights you’ve had, what his plans are for the weekend, what he’s eating for breakfast every day, all his deepest secrets — take your pick, she knows it all.
