Zodiac Signs Who Think Their Dad Was A Good Parent, According To Astrology

Zodiac Signs Who Adore Their Fathers, According To Astrology

Having a kind, dependable father to look up to can make a big difference in a child's life as they grow up. Fathers can teach their kids a lot of important life lessons.

Many children can recount a time when their father helped them with homework, taught them how to cook, or drove them to and from sports practices.

There’s more to it than that: the best fathers are also there for their children when difficult situations arise. If a child needs someone to talk to after being bullied at school, getting a bad grade, or having any other trouble in their life, having a father to fill this role can make all the difference.

For others, they may not have this great role model in their lives. Instead of helping their children in times of need, fathers may be cold or distant from their children, limiting the closeness of the father-child relationship.

Or perhaps a father is too strict on their children, always expecting the best from them, accepting nothing less, and chastising them when they don’t meet unrealistically-high expectations. This can put a lot of pressure on a child as they grow and develop.  

The experiences we have with our fathers in childhood, whether good, bad or somewhere in between, can influence us both at the time and after we become adults. This video explains some potential effects of different parenting styles on horoscopes in the zodiac.

Whatever the case, astrology can shed some light on just how much someone may idolize (or not idolize) their father.

Some horoscope signs tend to see their father in a positive light. Their father was and is a solid example and role model to emulate as they grow up, while others harbor resentment toward them or have more of an independent streak. Read on to find out which zodiac signs are more (and less) likely to idolize their father, according to astrology.

ARIES (March 21 – April 19)

Aries is a natural born leader, so they’re likely to find their confidence and start making their own decisions from a young age. They don’t seem like the type who will rely on others for an example, especially their parents. However, if their father happens to embody the same determined spirit that they aspire to, they may look to him as an example to emulate.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)

Taurus’ ambitions and desires come from within, and they’re unlikely to let anyone stand in the way of achieving them (including their parents). Strict parenting may have a stifling effect on them, and they could possibly cause them to harbor some resentment later in life. Taurus is most likely to idolize a father who knows what they want and goes after it.

GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)

Gemini has a strong desire to learn, so they’d appreciate a father who takes the time to teach them valuable life lessons. On the flipside, they can be very indecisive at times, so having a father who can help them make decisions would make them most comfortable. Gemini is most likely to thrive later in life if they have a close connection with a decisive, knowledgeable father.

CANCER (June 21 – July 22)

Cancer is very loyal and operates at their best when they have someone to collaborate with, so a father who fills this role is someone Cancer would look up to. However, Cancer needs their alone time as well, so overbearing parenting would bother them and prevent them from developing their independence. Ultimately, in their relationship with their father, Cancer would prefer a healthy balance between emotional connection and mutual distance.

LEO (July 23 – August 22)

Leo’s dominance and self-confidence are unquestionable, so they might end up clashing with parents who try to control or limit them. Instead, Leo would prefer to have their parents’ respect and would strive to earn it throughout their lives. A father who trusts their child and allows them to shine would have the greatest chance of bonding with their Leo child.

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)

Virgo is loyal to those they can trust, but someone who wrongs them would quickly fall out of their good graces. If their father is trustworthy and kind, Virgo will reciprocate, and father and child will have a strong relationship. However, Virgo might have a tough time showing their appreciation, as they aren’t likely to ask for help or display their emotions.

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)

Libra likes to be in control and always tries to see the big picture. Libra isn’t likely to place too much value on one family member (including their father), but that doesn’t mean they won't quietly appreciate them. If something puts a strain on their relationship with their father, Libra may have a hard time moving past it, as they are known to carry grudges.

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)

Scorpio loves to make their own decisions and isn’t afraid to assert their opinions, so they’re most likely to look up to a father who embodies these same qualities. Seeing a father with a strong sense of independence would further empower them to follow in these footsteps. However, these two dominant personalities may end up clashing, potentially creating distance between the two.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)

As a child, Sagittarius’ curiosity, enthusiasm, and optimism are likely to be on full display. A father who allows this sense of wonder to thrive would have the best chances of forming a strong bond with his Sagittarius child. If Sagittarius grows up with a father who embodies freedom and positivity, they will be best able to connect with him and have a great relationship.

CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)

Capricorn thrives on stability, tradition, and boundaries, so they’d most appreciate a father who understands this and allows them to stay within their comfort zone. Capricorn may end up harboring resentment toward their father if they feel pushed to try new things before they’re ready. Above all, Capricorn loves their family, so they’ll give it their all to try and maintain a strong relationship with their father.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)

Aquarius dislikes feeling restricted or having to compromise, so they may have trouble respecting a father who establishes himself as a figure of absolute authority. They’re most likely to idolize and speak highly of their father if they feel like they can make their own decisions while still turning to him for guidance when necessary.

PISCES (February 19 – March 20)

Pisces places a high value on communicating with others, especially those they love and are close with. They are very affectionate and emotionally devoted, so idolizing their father isn’t outside the realm of possibility. A father who acts as a strong leading example for Pisces to follow and learn from is most likely to earn Pisces’ praises.
