The relationship between a parent and a child is complicated. Both the parents and the child grow together. Maintaining the perfect balance between responsibility and expectations is vital. Astrology for children has seen a continuous rise. Parents also feel that it can help them understand their child’s inherent potential.
On the other hand, people argue that involving children in astrological practices can hinder their growth. Astrologers believe that newborn children possess innate characteristics. They realize the presence of these characters as they grow up.

Astrology can provide valuable help for raising children. It can also help find underlying causes of aggressive, silent or uncommunicative behaviour. It does not limit itself to finding out the reasons and provides doable solutions based on horoscopes. Horoscopes can reveal the potential pitfalls and even strengths of every child. Hence, parents can be aware of their child from an early stage and avoid conflicts that may arise.
To judge the relationship between parents and children, we look at the 5th house in parent’s horoscope. The influences on the 5th house and its lords determine how the relationship will evolve in the future. Additionally, we also look at the 9th house for the father and the 4th house for the mother in the Kundali.
If there is a positive influence through the Moon, Venus and Jupiter, there will be happiness through children for the parents. Saturn and Rahu cause unhappiness. Afflicted Mercury causes worries and communication issues. Mars causes dangers and Rahu leads to smoking, misunderstanding and scandals.
One of the most important factors is the placement of the 5th lord in various houses. A good relationship between the parent and child is present where there is a right combination between the 1st and 5th house lords. Parents will also enjoy the foreign travel of their children. This happens if there is a proper combination between the 5th and 7th or 9th house lords. Click here if you are interested in reading about the effects of Lord of Ascendant in various houses.
On the other hand, the relationship will be estranged by distance if there are negative influences in these houses in the Kundli. For example, the child might not support the parents in their old age. A parent may not be able to support the child financially if there is a negative influence of 2nd house. Emotional issues, specifically with the mother, are indicated if there are afflictions to the 4th house in the child’s horoscope.
A parent may neglect his/her children for a career. This happens if there is an unfavorable combination between the 5th and 10th house. The child may not get enough support from the parents because of the career aspirations of the parents. This is due to the presence of a combination of the 9th and 10th houses.
In Child astrology, Moon is often considered to be a more critical factor than the Sun. The positions of the Moon have a powerful influence on the behaviour of children. The Moon also influences their emotional or spontaneous reactions. The energies associated with the Sun help a child to take a creative role in shaping his/her own life. These come gradually from the age of seven and especially during puberty.
Waxing and waning of Moon reflect the openness to change and unpredictability associated with children. Therefore, children are in a constant state of change that reflected in physical growth.
Two necessary lunar activities are receiving and giving. Children are dependent on receiving ques and impressions to grow and find their path. The Moon, in its crescent phase, defines a child’s ability to accept as it requires openness.
Encourage your child to play outdoor games as it makes Mars more powerful. In Vedic astrology, Mars represents some crucial aspects of life. These are confidence, courage, audacity, self-defense, and forces.
Do not let your child be confined to the interiors of the home by allowing them to indulge too much into technology. Mars will not be favorable if this happens. Enroll them in sports to remove the negative influence of Mars.
Gayatri Mantra is an essential and powerful mantra since time immemorial. Chanting Gayatri Mantra can thus bring a positive change in life. According to Vedic Astrology, teaching Gayatri Mantra to children can make the Sun strong. Strong Sun bestows positive energy. Hence, success will follow.
Green leafy vegetables are rich sources of vitamins, iron, and calcium. Mercury and green have a direct connection. Eating green vegetables will help your child gain the positive influence of Mercury. Thus, it will boost the grasping power, concentration, and memory of your child.
Place some copper coins in a temple if your child is lying. If he or she has become mischievous, gift him or her a silver bangle. These activities improve Moon’s influence. Hence, your child becomes more disciplined and goal-oriented.
Spending time with elders also helps your child mature intellectually, emotionally, mentally and educationally. It will also remove the evil influence of Jupiter on your child’s life if any.
According to Vedic Astrology theories, Saturn represents justice and is intolerant towards injustice. Thus, encourage your child to help the needy to remove the negative influence of Saturn.
In conclusion, more than the celestial bodies in the universe; children see their parents as the sun and the stars. A parent’s behavior and upbringing will have more effect on a child than any planet. So parents, be kind and thoughtful with your children, and the planets will favor them.
