So, we made it to 2020! And to mark the momentous triumph of entering a new decade, we’re unveiling a fresh new zodiac series, zooming in on every star sign… with a particular focus on what to expect from your kiddos! Whether you’re expecting a tiny Taurus or you’re intrigued to learn some more about your little Libra, stay tuned for our monthly issue, which will be exploring those charming traits and lovable characters…
You would think that the “aqua” at the beginning of its name suggests a connection with water, however, aspirational Aquarius is actually the last in the zodiac of the air signs. Represented by the water bearer, the mystical healer who grants life or water to the land, Aquarians tend to feel very passionately about all sorts of serious subjects so, expect a future revolutionist perhaps, and for now… a tiny person who certainly likes to rise up against authority… aka, you! A little rebel at heart Aquarians are free spirited and sometimes a little wacky! Look out for experimental fashion and nonconformist attitudes. It’s why we love them, so!
The month of February will see your adorably devilish and ever so smart, little Aquarius keeping you on your toes, somewhat! Bursting with energy, emotion and outstanding intelligence more than ever this month, your little Aquarian seems to ALWAYS be one step ahead. They’re keen to pack out their ‘schedule’ with meeting new people even more so at the moment, so getting involved in all kinds of activities is a great way to start ticking things off the list!
seem to be one
These sprightly busy bees tend to be a little absent-minded every now and then and though it may feel like they are ignoring you, their hectic thoughts are actually pedalling through the many goings on they’ve got on the agenda that day!
If you’re already sharing your household with a mini Aquarian, then stubbornness may prove a regular theme in your everyday lives! And though, it can sometimes feel like they will never give up, it’s important that you don’t back down, in order to teach them that not everything can go their way – this will be one of your kiddo’s biggest lessons in life, and they’ll be thankful for it when they’re grown!
At times, your little Aquarian’s happy and laid-back nature can lull you into a false sense of security… and then bam! The little rascals can erupt into a frenzy of high-pitched rage and tantrums like there’s no tomorrow! That’s fine, though, because it doesn’t take them long to dust off and move onto another task that takes their fancy. They forgive easily and generally don’t take things to heart, so don’t worry about that flurry of passion lasting all day… Like a rollercoaster, they should only last a few minutes. Phew!
Seemingly in tune with other people’s emotions, does it ever feel like your empathetic little air sign knows exactly when you’re feeling blue? Eager to smother people in kisses and cuddles, affectionate Aquarius always tries to make people feel better; this compassionate trait will be one of the many reasons they are so liked by everyone they meet.
And of course, their ultra smart and impeccably sharp ways will have them at the top of the class in no time. They are as socially intelligent, (very charming!) as they are textbook clever; just be sure to remind them that, while it’s tempting to rely on that captivating allure every now and then, it may not serve them as well when it comes to succeeding in school!
Life with Aquarians tends to be full of surprises so sit back and enjoy all the fun and laughter to come!
A glimpse at the coming month for Pisces
February 19th – March 20th
The most psychic and in-tune sign of the zodiac, your sensitive little Pisces, like Capricorn, will be feeling the intensity of their emotions this month. But make sure that it’s known to them just how normal it is to feel conflicted and in two minds about something; that the answer will come to them in its own time. They may have worked themselves up into a flurry somewhat, so encourage lots of napping and the time to recoup so they can rise again, fresh and ready to illuminate, just as they always do!
A glimpse at the coming month for Aries
March 21st – April 19th
Inspire your little Aries to channel their creative verve this month, because now is the time to get mega crafty with lots of fun materials and colours to experiment with. Their ruling planet, excitable Mars, is more prominent than ever this month, and while many non-Aries individuals are feeling a little static and lacking in oomph, your tiny fire sign will be just fine, bringing tons of additional liveliness to make up for the loss of everyone else’s!
A glimpse at the coming month for Taurus
April 20th – May 20th
This month, your tiny Taureans may experience a bout of cabin fever (even if they’ve been running riot outside all day long!) but that’s ok because all they really need is a little bit of brisk back garden February air! Who’s to say you can’t wrap them up in plentiful layers and create some stimulating activities for them, this way too?! From potting plants to painting garden features, there’s so much to keep them busy with this month!
A glimpse at the coming month for Gemini
May 21st – June 20th
January felt like it was full of feet dragging and general post-Christmas gloominess but, by stark contrast, the month of February seems to have granted your littl’un a new lease of life! They’ll be eager and beaming, happy to get stuck into whatever task they’re given. Some super fun outings also look to be popping up on the agenda, so get them packed and ready, and watch as they excitedly explore their new surroundings.
A glimpse at the coming month for Cancer
June 21st – July 22nd
Pintsized Cancerians are looking at a hectic February, revealing lots of ups and downs and a triumphant end to the month. A busy time for ticking off lots of to-dos – parties, playdates and everything in between – this month is also about breaking stubborn habits and achieving goals they’ve been working toward for a while. You may end up watching them receive an award by the 25th so get ready to shower them with praise and congratulatory hugs.
A glimpse at the coming month for Leo
July 23rd – August 22nd
The little lion is always very generous when it comes to giving love & affection, and being free & uninhibited with self-expression. And this month is no exception! Though a lovely gift to be on the receiving end of, little Leo may be feeling extra needy of your attention, this month… and they won’t be afraid to let you know (somewhat audibly) if they’re not getting enough! It’s fine, though, as dramatic Leos are always a joy to be around so feel free to sit back and laugh hysterically at their ‘one kid show!’
A glimpse at the coming month for Virgo
August 23rd – September 22nd
In true Virgo form they’ll be spending a lot of this month fretting over the needs of others and, of course, forgetting about their own in the process. This is a very endearing trait of Virgo’s but be sure that their strong focus on others does not result in the weakening of their self-esteem and confidence. It’s OK for them to demand what they want once in a while!
A glimpse at the coming month for Libra
September 23rd – October 22nd
Lovable Libras are uncharacteristically resolute when it comes to decision making this month. Listen wholeheartedly to their directness because it’ll no doubt encourage them in future to feel confident with making their minds up about something and sticking to it! They may be feeling a little sluggish this month and less sprightly than their usual selves but that’s A-OK because venturing out into the cold has been a less than pleasant experience, this month! Give it a few days and they’ll be back to their vibrant, fidgety selves in no time!
A glimpse at the coming month for Scorpio
October 23rd – November 21st
It’s good news for fiercely passionate Scorpio, this month because the full moon of February 8-9 is in Leo, a pioneering sign for the arts and entertainment; this looks to be a jam-packed month dotted with some memorable days for your tiny Scorpion. Whether they feel like taking up drama lessons or are showing an interest in crafty activities like painting or tapestry, support them in any way you can because this could be the start of something very special!
A glimpse at the coming month for Sagittarius
November 22nd – December 21st
Continuing to show signs of that strong-willed independence you’ve come to know so well, your little Sagittarian is in for a month of stating opinions, albeit some grizzly voiced ones, at times! Tantrums are something they would benefit from being calmly guided through when they arise. But overall, they’re heading for an optimistic few weeks channeling their colourful imaginations and getting stuck into the books!
A glimpse at the coming month for Capricorn
December 22nd – January 19th
This month, expect some new levels of energy from Capricorn! The Sun and Saturn are about to unite with their ascendant, so their emotions will seem a little heightened at times, but fear not, because that’ll mean plenty of opportunities to connect with one another whether that’s through endless cuddles to soothe their worries (they’re said to have old souls!) or reflective chats, helping you to encourage their passage of expression.
The Aquarius colour palette is Turquoise and Aquamarine which are great stress relievers and they also calm the mind and emotions!
