When it comes time to seriously date someone, it is important to not only know how they feel about family. This can give you an idea of whether or not they have the same values as you and whether or not they will want to meet your family as a result.

There is nothing worse than dating someone who doesn’t like your family and your family doesn’t like them back. It may not be the absolute end of the relationship, but it can make things a bit awkward when you invite your lover to attend family gatherings.

But fret not, there is an easy way to find out before you start dating a guy if he will approve of your family and vice versa. It is called reading about their horoscope signs. 

Astrology can tell us a lot about a person, ranging anywhere between their likes and dislikes to their expectations of family and friends.

Knowing about their expectations of family and friends as well as how they interact with people in general can be a huge help when it comes to predicting if they will like your family. If the guy you are dating is a Leo for example, he may love your family just because of his confidence in his ability to charm anyone around him.

If he is an Aries he might hate your family just because of what family represents to him, which is often restriction. Find out if he likes your family based on his zodiac sign.


ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

While Aries can tolerate people with different personalities and backgrounds, they are short-tempered. This partnered with their independent nature causes them to separate from their family at a very early age.

Therefore an Aries man probably won't like your family unless they are extremely liberal. He will get angry if they ask too much of him or set too many rules or expectations for him. It will remind him of why he hates restrictions and why he never does more than he has to when it comes to family obligations.  


TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus are big on meeting the expectations of their family and close friends. That is why he will have no problem liking and getting to know your family. Believe it or not, before he officially decided to choose you as a partner, he had already confirmed that you came from the same social environment as him.

This is how he knew that you too valued family routines, traditions and upbringing. He will enjoy attending family gatherings with you and learning more about why you are the way you are.  

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Gemini's love seeking new people to talk to, and that will certainly include your family. He will use the opportunity to be around them to search for understanding of your family dynamic and to hold conversation with intellectual people.

Gemini will especially enjoy spending time with the younger members of your family, as it allows him to bring out his childish and innocent nature. He will be at his calmest, something that tends to happen when he is surrounded by the spirit of family.


CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancer is the sign of family. There is nothing they care about more than matters of the home. Since they care about family bonds, they will at least attempt to like your family. But the likelihood of him actually wanting to be around them might be slim.

This is because he has a hard time opening up to people he isn't already close to, which causes him to have trouble blending in with unfamiliar crowds. However, because he respects you, he will continue to spend time with your family and simply hold his tongue to avoid conflict.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Family is usually one of the last things on the mind of a Leo. This is because they are too focused on themselves. However, Leo is proud of their ancestry and never misses a chance to brag about it.

This is one of the few reasons why he will like your family. He will get to share his family story, using his strong, charming and confident personality appeal to nearly all of your relatives. They won't be able to stop giving him all the attention he lives for. Your Leo lover will be happy to toot his own horn as he celebrates being able to win over your family. 

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgo cares deeply about family, especially their elders. They understand the importance of tradition and are proud of their upbringing, as it helped shape the person they are today. He will initially want to like your family, but will realize that this isn't possible.

One reason for this is that he will expect to see a good and well functioning family who values traditions. If this is not the case, he will be extremely disappointed. For him, it will be a reminder that disappointment is inevitable, so it is better to close his heart to outsiders. 



LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libras are all about maintaining harmony and balance. This is why he will not like your family. Families are bound to have conflict, and he will not want to stick around long enough to be asked to pick sides.

He already struggled with family relationships throughout his lifetime, as he often found himself transferring guilt between family members. He won't do it again with your family. He swiftly run back into his corner where he can finally think straight and come up with his own point of view. 

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpios have a hard time adapting to behaviors that are different from their own. Families are full of different people who possess different qualities. Qualities that Scorpios don't agree with, such being dishonest and talkative.

Families often lie or talk too much, and that is why he will not like your family. He will be annoyed that they tell secrets so easily, and this will ultimately make him suspicious of you. He will wonder if you will be the same way, quick to share his secrets with other people he doesn't wish to know his business.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius born enjoy exploring all the diversity and culture that life has to offer. While this will allow him to feel free as he travels the world, it makes him unstable. Though he loves spending time with his own loved ones, he will not like your family. This is because he doesn't always know that he'll want to remain in the same relationship until he has explored all of his options. Your family will lessen his ability to do so as he feels pressured to be more committed to you than he might've initially been ready to.


CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorns can lack compassion when it comes to loved ones and that is why it is unlikely for them to compromise. While they understand family traditions and enjoy sharing memories from their childhood, they often struggle with dominance in the household.

Your Capricorn lover will not like it if your father isn't an important figure in you and your family's life. He also doesn't like to be surrounded by nosey people, so he won't like that your family asks too many private questions unless he has already willingly agreed to open up. 

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius like having interesting conversations with people. They pride themselves on living an open, willing and imaginative lifestyle when it comes to communication. An Aquarius man will have high expectations for your family, but as long as they show integrity and are creative and intellectual, he will love them.

He will enjoy having conversation with various members who will mentally stimulate his mind as they aren't afraid of his demeanor and who will eagerly challenge his strong views. 

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces are extremely friendly people, who can get along with just about anyone. They are intuitive by nature and that is why they are able to achieve the best emotional relationships of all the zodiac signs.

Having strong communication with loved ones is very important to them, and that is why your Pisces lover will like your family. He understands the importance of spending time with them and getting to know them if he plans to fully understand you. This will help him feel a deeper connection with you, something he needs to stay in a relationship.
