In honour of Mother’s Day, this forecast is dedicated on how best to navigate your relationship with your mum to make it even better than it is. Have you been curious about what makes her the way she is? Hopefully after reading this, you will be enlightened!
It's written in the stars: A deeper look into your relationship with Mum
She is deeply passionate with a fiery ambition. Sets high expectations for herself and her offspring. She wants to have her cake and eat it all. Being a fantastic mum is just as important as being an ambitious career woman. Everything around her and herself has to look immaculate to reflect her being in control. Loyalty to her family is greatly valued, but don’t be surprised if she prioritises a meeting over a school play. She will, however, send Daddy or Grandma to the rescue for support. But she will most certainly make it up to you! You are a fire sign (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius)... You can appreciate the drive and ambition of your Aries mum. She will support you in whatever you do. She isn’t the kind to cramp your style, so there will be plenty of space for you to express yourself and feel independent. Her task master ways will instill good values and discipline in you. You are an earth sign (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn)..... You are in admiration of your Aries mum - she always has a word of encouragement for you and wants to see you grow into an independent person who catches the bull by its horns. Which you certainly end up doing. There is no stopping your Aries mum in her personal activities, and there will be times when you wish you had a stay-home mum instead of a working mum. You will find as you get older that she will be the one with a far more active social life than you! You are an air sign (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius)..... There is never a better combination than this. Just think the Gilmore Girls and imagine your Aries mum as the confidant and BFF that you have always wished for. Your carefree and out-of-the-box ways will be embraced. Expect lots of laughter, fun and creativity from this relationship. She will be your inspiration as you are both socially alike and will never seem to run out of conversation topics when you are in each other’s company. You are a water sign (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)... You will be craving her attention growing up. Her busyness isn’t to be mistaken for her loving you less. She just needs to be doing her own thing, and everything has equal importance in her life. She isn’t your conventional mum and you would most likely not have a regular childhood. Expect to be dragged to her meetings when she has you in tow. She does feel she is providing you the best education possible though, so it’s time to toughen up a little and sit up and learn.

Discipline and routine are important for them. Creating a stable and safe environment is a key feature of their parenting style. You will be pleased to know that she won’t be quick to judge you, but would put herself in your shoes to understand your perspective before she gives her opinion. Her half-cup-full attitude never fails to put a smile on your face when it feels like your world has come tumbling down. Being a walking encyclopaedia, Taurus never fails to satisfy an inquisitive child. Well known for their thrifty ways, they aren’t the type to spoil their children with lavish things and are more than happy to accept hand-me-downs. You are a fire sign (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius)… Growing up with a Taurus mum can feel stifling. Her routine and regimented ways will seem boring and inflexible. Her attempts at building a secure and safe environment may not be what you have in mind as you value your independence and space. However, as you get older and move away, you will grow to appreciate her loyalty and steadfastness. She took your tantrums and never uttered a word, and you feel guilty. The thought of her rushing to cook your favourite meal when she knows you are on your way home will draw you closer in your older age. You are an earth sign (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn)... Everything fits like a glove for you with a Taurus mum. Things feel natural and familiar. Nothing is over the top, not even her disciplined ways. Organisation is your thing and also hers. There is no question that you have the best mum anyone could ask for! You are an air sign (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius)... Your eccentric ways are a cause for chaos in the life of a Taurus mum. You will certainly spend a lifetime trying to make her understand you, but you won’t get very far. Being free and quirky is your element, but it will feel like your wings are being clipped each time you share your aspirations with her. Tradition and stability are her beliefs, but not your cup of tea. Expect to be disapproved in every way, from what you wear, your choice of career to even your boyfriends. A sense of duty will overcome you with time and you will appreciate her always being there despite the disagreements. You are a water sign (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)... It’s important for a water sign child to feel safe and secure, and the Taurus mum provides just that. However, don’t expect mollycoddling or her giving in to your emotional tantrums. She will always bring you back to earth with her practical reasoning, and expect you to snap out of things and move along. She is your rock when you need assurance and advice, and will always be dependable. READ MORE: Calling all mothers: Here's what the rest of 2017 has in store for you, according to your horoscope and A walk down memory lane with my mum part one: Julie Tan Expect the unexpected with a Gemini mum. She can be easily distracted and could be the mum who loses her child while poring over food labels at the supermarket. Definitely young at heart and will never run out of ideas for activities with her children. Being ruled by the planet Mercury, she is very much into encouraging her children to read or bringing them to museums. Geminis are excellent communicators and always take the time to listen to what happened during their child’s day. There is a tendency for her to get overly anxious when she feels she is falling behind in her parenting skills. So any form of reassurance will put her back in her comfort zone. You are a fire sign (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius)... You are in for a fun ride with your Gemini mum. The roles may feel reversed sometimes, with you feeling more like the parent as you bring airy Mum back to earth. You may find yourself losing patience with her when she doesn’t stick to plans. Her out-of-the-box ideas always leave you in awe. She will always be an inspiration for you, but her social butterfly ways might leave you fighting for her attention. You will have a lifelong cheerleader in her. Her enthusiasm over your successes never fades with time. You are an earth sign (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn)... Firstly, you will find her twin personality just baffling. Being an earth sign, her airiness will be frustrating. It can be upsetting for the focused earth sign when your Gemini Mum gets restless and changes her mind like the wind. With age, you will begin to understand her wavering ways are never intentional. She probably thought it was fun to get on the scenic route. But one thing is for sure - she will always give you that listening ear when you need it the most, and share her most quirky and eccentric ideas! You are an air sign (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius)... There is no stopping the both of you. You get on like house on fire! It will feel like finding your soulmate. You just spur each other on and the banter is endless. It’s like having a girlfriend over for a permanent sleepover. Because you find yourselves having such similar tastes, wardrobe sharing won’t be a farfetched thought. You are a water sign (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)... Emotionally needy water signs will be pleased with the fact that they get a listening ear whenever they need one. But with the water sign’s tendency to go on and on, the Gemini mum loses interest after some time. She does try her best to be there as much as she can, but you can’t fault her when she gets distracted. After all, she lives in the moment and won’t share your viewpoint of wallowing over the same thing for too long. READ MORE: Calling all mothers: Here's what the rest of 2017 has in store for you, according to your horoscope and A walk down memory lane with my mum part one: Julie Tan You were born to be a parent. Motherly instincts just flow naturally to you. You are emotionally sensitive and can pick things up when they feel wrong. You are eager to make things okay, and doing things as a family is of utmost importance. Avoid taking things personally when a particular family member isn’t too keen to be part of all your family activities. Not everyone will have the patience to bake a cake! Your life will definitely be centred around family as you aren’t a very open person socially. So once you open up to someone, they will most likely be in your life and treated like part of the family for a long time to come. It’s not surprising that you become your children’s lifelong confidant, considering the time you have spent raising them. You are a fire sign (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius)... The fiery and confident fire sign may find the Cancer mum overly emotional and sentimental. You can’t help but feel embarrassed by her public displays of affection. Cancer’s need to have her family close by will be in constant disagreement with the fire sign’s need for wanderlust and adventure. Her overprotectiveness should not be mistaken for smothering. She has after all invested her lifetime and sacrificed her dreams to raise you and just wants to know if you are okay from time to time. You are an earth sign (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn)... You were made for each other. You both celebrate traditional family values so what could be better? However, the one thing that doesn’t sit well with you is your Mum’s reminders of ‘what ifs’ whenever you share your plans and ambitions with her. She isn’t trying to dampen your enthusiasm, but is just trying to make sure you have a plan B if plan A doesn’t quite work. As you get older, you will probably be having her on speed dial whenever you have to make a big decision and need her strong instincts. You are an air sign (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius)... You are definitely the opposite of your water sign mum. As they say, opposites attract. Growing up, you may have found her matriarchal ways overbearing to the point of irritating. But if you had a late night, she is always up waiting for you with a hot meal to warm you up. Her nurturing ways just never stop. She is ever ready to shower her love and attention and is always there to support your eccentricity. Being an expressive sign, you welcome all her displays of affection. You are a water sign (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)..... There is just far too much emotion flowing through. You never know when you are going to say or do something that gets taken the wrong way by her. What an eggshell environment! You can obviously understand each other better with time. But it can be very draining for a water sign child with a Cancer mum. She could be too sensitive for her own good. Taking her in small doses at a time would be more manageable, but she is ever so excited when you let her know you are coming over for a visit! READ MORE: Calling all mothers: Here's what the rest of 2017 has in store for you, according to your horoscope and A walk down memory lane with my mum part one: Julie Tan Fiery Leo mums are well known for being protective and will not think twice about confronting the parent of the child or the very child who has been bullying her offspring. She is ever so generous with her cuddles and kisses and will make you feel like her life revolves around you. However, don’t allow this characteristic of hers to be mistaken for her lack of ambition. She is very much involved in making her own dreams come true as much as her child’s. She goes all out to make sure she holds the best children’s birthday party in the neighbourhood, and will never let her child feel like they are lacking in terms of material possessions. She may be lavish in showering her attention on you, but when she unleashes her lioness disciplinarian ways, everyone takes heed and listens to her orders. It’s amazing how she is able to flex her confidence and authority in getting a place in the best ballet school even when there are no spots left! Her loyalty to her family is fierce and unwavering. You are a fire sign (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius)… There is so much to learn from your Leo mum. She will certainly be a role model you look up to for years to come. As a child, the desire to be like her, dress and speak like her will be ever so strong. She will always be the one to go to for suggestions and advice. And not once will you ever hear a negative response. She instils the drive in you to always do better than everyone else. Her demanding ways and high expectations will pay off in the end. She will always be the first to know of your successes because you can’t wait to see that proud beam on her face. Her matriarchal ways are never perceived as overbearing as you know she just wants the best for you. You are an earth sign (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn)... With age, you certainly won’t agree with her extravagant ways. Her extreme enthusiasm may not sit well with you when privacy is all you crave. Her social butterfly ways could be a bit much for you growing up. But she was always there when you fell off your bicycle. Sometimes you just wish for alone time with her rather than a big party. You cherish her advice and encouragement. As you get older, you will certainly look forward to the holidays and spa weekends with her. It’s a time where she teaches you to let loose and live a little. You are an air sign (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius)... Being an air sign, routine just isn’t your thing and that is why a Leo mum is perfect for you. While she may be liberal in a lot of ways, she does still exercise her authority when it’s needed. Which is exactly the kind of control air signs need to bring them down to earth. There is a nice balance of fun and seriousness with her. Her self-confidence is admirable and something you strive to have. Leaving the house without a painted face is unheard of for her and she ages with grace too. You will always love spending time with her and will be very proud to introduce her to your friends. You are a water sign (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)... The private water sign will never understand their Leo mum. There is admiration from a distance, but don’t expect her to be your BFF and confidant. You will always appreciate how she has always been there for you, but her mannerisms will always seem a little over the top for you when all you want is a little peace and quiet. She could end up chatting to people in the waiting area of a surgery, and by the end of it, everyone would know of your embarrassing medical issue, making you want to bury your head in the sand. Hence, you are never able to share your secrets with her out of fear of it making the headline news. But she will always be the favourite grandma because she brings the best presents! READ MORE: Calling all mothers: Here's what the rest of 2017 has in store for you, according to your horoscope and A walk down memory lane with my mum part one: Julie Tan The Virgo mum is extremely structured and organised. Having anything out of place in their home does make things frustrating. You can expect her to make her children make their beds as soon as they jump out of bed, and put their toys away once playtime is finished. Apart from her micromanaging ways, she is rather free-spirited and enjoys being part of nature, so she is eager to instil in her children the need to save the environment. A healthy lifestyle is important, so she would most likely be getting her little ones involved in making healthy granola bars or oatmeal flapjacks. She tries to make every activity fun, interactive and something her children can learn from. She’s very much into the holistic approach to learning and may not necessarily believe in sending her children to the best private school to receive the best education possible. You are a fire sign (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius)... It isn’t fun for children to be doing chores so the Virgo mum may most likely appear to be a nag when it comes to that time of the day. She is only trying to instil discipline and good values which you will come to understand in later years. She will equip you with life skills that will go unappreciated at first. But you will have her to thank when what she taught you as a child comes in handy in adult life. She encourages you to create a plan rather than dream frivolously. Be prepared is definitely her motto, which air signs aren’t very diligent at. You are an earth sign (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn)... There is a nice comfortable relationship going on with this pairing. Each party understands the other and it’s a smooth-flowing relationship throughout. Both aren’t very big risk takers, so your Mum’s input in your decision making is something that you will resonate well with. You are an air sign (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius)… You aren’t particularly the most tidy sign of the zodiacs. So your Mum’s military-like ways when it comes to chores isn’t met with your cooperation. Whilst she may understand your carefree ways, she is concerned about you having unrealistic expectations about your future, which very often could be misunderstood as her trying to restrict your freedom, because she hasn’t had the luxury of it like you. Conflict is not uncommon during growing up years. But things most surely settle down when you seek parenting advice from her. After all, you turned out really well under her rule, so she must have done something right! You are a water sign (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)... Virgo mum has a knack for keeping the emotional water sign under control. You simply can’t get away from her logical reasoning, but she is always right. Frustrating for you when you just want to be right for a change. She isn’t the kind to give in to your emotional tantrums, which will most likely be ignored or get you punished. So as a child you might resent her for it. Her aloof ways will appear uncaring. She is the perfect balance to your extreme emotional character. READ MORE: Calling all mothers: Here's what the rest of 2017 has in store for you, according to your horoscope and A walk down memory lane with my mum part one: Julie Tan Libras take to parenting like mermaid in water. Being a mother just adds a whole new dimension and purpose to your life as if you were put on this earth to be one. You love being involved in the lives of your children. So getting involved with craft activities or even playing tea-time just comes naturally. Libran mums expect to be included in their children’s activities all the time, but when the little ones just really want each other’s company (which happens!), don’t feel defeated. Well known for loving beautiful things and their vanity, it’s not surprising to see the children of a Libran mum all dressed to the nines as well! You are a fire sign (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius)... You love your Libra mum because there is never a dull moment with her. You aspire to be like her when you become a parent because she is such a natural. Her company is always treasured and you can’t wait to ring her to tell her about your day because you know she is always interested and never gets bored hearing your stories. If you want to feel on top of the world, there is no better person than Mum to share your dreams with because she will dream with you. You are an earth sign (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn)... Structure and stability make you feel secure, and these aren’t the qualities that your Mum is going to provide you, unfortunately. On the whole, you will have a memorable childhood, but you will take note of what she could have done to be a better mum - in your opinion. You are both very different people and her opinions and judgement won’t be what you seek out. However, she will be a very involved grandparent and will never say no to babysitting your children. You are an air sign (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius)... It’s an interesting combination here because it’s either you get on like house on fire or just get on each other’s nerves. Both being extremely social and at times loud, it could feel like you are stealing each other’s limelight. If you come to a mutual understanding of each other’s characteristics, then you just seem to spur on each other’s antics with chats late into the night, sharing wardrobes or holidaying with each other. You will always have people around you as you both can be such fun! You are a water sign (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)... The Libra mum doesn’t really have the patience to tolerate your emotional side. She will be there armed with advice when you have a break up, but at times, what you want is more of a cuddle, not advice which you can get from a self-help book. She is physically present in activities with you, but at times may feel emotionally distant. Not to say her upbeat ways don’t cheer you up, but her idea of getting over something negative quickly by picking yourself up and dusting yourself off is not really your way of dealing with things. Instead, a good cry, sulk or a brood is what gives you satisfaction. READ MORE: Calling all mothers: Here's what the rest of 2017 has in store for you, according to your horoscope and A walk down memory lane with my mum part one: Julie Tan Being a water sign, you are emotionally in tuned to being a mum. You do bring out the iron fist every now and then, but are never short on cuddles and kisses. You only want the best for your kids so having an all rounded education is important to you. Hitting the books is just as important as running wild in the woods! Their day is always packed and you ensure a balance of intellectual and physical activity. You are fiercely loyal and protective and face a hard time letting go when it’s time for your brood to leave the nest. Having an overly anxious nature, you can be expected to constantly check your WhatsApp to see when they were last online just to feel reassured that things are okay. You are a fire sign (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius)... The good thing about a Scorpion mum is how she encourages you to be independent. She feels very proud when you are able to spread your wings and pursue your dreams. She holds no judgment in your choice of career, however, she will if you move too far away from her. Her stalking tendencies could end up making you feel a little claustrophobic, but all she really wants is to be assured that things are okay with you. So don’t go too long without answering her phone calls or messages as she could end up reporting a missing person if you don’t! You are an earth sign (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn)... You both celebrate family life so that is your common ground. The practical earth sign may however find the emotional Scorpio a little too much at times. You appreciate the discipline that she instils in you as it provides you with stability and security. Being the centre of her universe, you won’t be short of attention. So it’s the perfect environment for you to grow up in. You are an air sign (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius)... You are complete opposites, really. Your Scorpion mum is extremely careful with who she lets into her life, while you are friends with everybody. She does get very concerned with you being too ‘open’ and feels she constantly needs to look out for you. It does get stifling when she feels the need to ‘approve’ everyone in your life. Despite being on opposite sides of the social spectrum, she is the person you want to visit when things come tumbling down in your life. You are a water sign (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)... She is all that you can ask for in a mum. She understands you through and through. You love doing activities together as it makes you all warm and fuzzy. You are both into making a home cosy so you both could be baking up a storm in the kitchen or even making a family quilt together! READ MORE: Calling all mothers: Here's what the rest of 2017 has in store for you, according to your horoscope and A walk down memory lane with my mum part one: Julie Tan Wild and carefree Sagittarius doesn’t make an ideal mother figure, but definitely promises to deliver an adventurous childhood. There is no such thing as a regimented schedule in her books. She does things on a whim, like letting her kids go to bed at whatever time they wish and allowing them to skip meals for cake and chocolate. This obviously leads to problems of discipline over time, so it’s not uncommon for a Sagittarius mum to hand over parenting duties to the grandparents from time to time. Travel is something deeply ingrained in the wanderlust Sagittarius and she hopes to instil that adventurous spirit in her offspring. In her eyes, there is nothing wrong with packing her kids off for a road trip in the middle of a school term. You are a fire sign (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius)... The boldness and individuality of the Sagittarius mum is one to be admired, but her inability to keep to a schedule may cause some upset when she fails to attend your first recital. As a child, she may not be around as much as you would like her to, but when she does include you in her exciting world then everything just falls into place. There is lots to learn from the Sagittarius mum, believe it or not. Her out-of-the-box thinking amazingly takes her places and she is always able to work her way out of situations with her witty charm. She leaves you in awe of how she makes success look so effortless. You are an earth sign (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn)... You find yourself playing the parent in this relationship most of the time. She is pleased with your independence as nagging isn’t her style. But she definitely wishes you would live a little, so her crazy ideas to get you involved from time to time does leave a grin on your face. You are baffled by how she achieves anything at all with her lack of timekeeping, but somehow she does. Your childhood will be one of wishing your mum was around more and the one who bakes birthday cakes, but instead she was far too busy trekking the Himalayas. You are an air sign (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius)... You make the dream team. You entertain her madness as it sits with your airiness. Being social butterflies, you don’t feel the need to have her in your space all the time. Her love for travel definitely catches on and she will make a fun travel partner - when she does stick to the itinerary. But even then, you will always have the most exhilarating time with her! You are a water sign (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)... Emotional water sign will never understand the aloofness of their Sagittarius mum. You will constantly be craving for her attention and want to have more family time together, but she fails to give you the security you need. It’s not unusual for a water sign child to feel more attached to a relative like an aunt or grandparent instead, to seek the security and the cuddles they so crave. Your Sagittarius mum is not one who places family above herself, and may be resented for her need for her own independence. READ MORE: Calling all mothers: Here's what the rest of 2017 has in store for you, according to your horoscope and A walk down memory lane with my mum part one: Julie Tan She is the taskmaster who wears the pants in the family. She is extremely disciplined and only believes in tough love. To her, structure and discipline breed success, and she only wants the best for her children. She isn’t the type to shower her children with lavish gifts and treats, but wants them to earn it. But what she will give her child is the best education, or get them involved in activities that nurture and develop their leadership skills. Being the extremely hardworking person that she is, you will be amazed at how she treats each responsibility with equal importance. Both her staff and her children will receive her undivided attention. She can appear cold and distant at times - don’t expect mushy displays of affection from her when you do well, but rather a very formal “Well done”. You are a fire sign (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius)... The Capricorn mum is the ultimate role model for the ambitious fire sign. She embodies success and independence and a fierce willpower to perform her best at every role. However, it can get very tough to keep up with her. She lives according to her calendar and sometimes you just wish she would make a cheeky stopover at the park for a little runabout after school. If it’s not planned, then it isn’t happening. Fire sign children with a Capricorn mum definitely do emerge extremely successful in life. Despite being frustrated with your mother’s inability to let her hair down at times, you will certainly appreciate her pressure-cooker attitude whilst growing up in later years. You are an earth sign (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn)... You are completely at ease with Mum’s structured ways, but what you really wanted growing up was a mum and not a dad. Mum was probably the breadwinner growing up or made more money than dad, so she didn’t have time to do the girly things with you. She was more of an authoritative figure rather than a warm and fuzzy figure in your life. But she made sure you learned good values like duty and reward through hard work. You grow up a very filial child because your mum instilled in you to always respect and care for your elders. You are an air sign (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius)... The sentiment of the air sign child will be “What did I do to deserve this?”. You just rebelled against her rigid ways right from the start. She would most likely try to put you in boarding school to instil structure and discipline if she couldn’t do it herself. She only wants to give you the right values, but you mistake it as her wanting to get rid of you so she can have her own freedom. Unfortunately, she will never see eye to eye with you wanting to live a free and hippie-like life. She sees you as distracted and not able to focus on being successful. If you don’t meet her expectations, you will always be made to feel second best. You are a water sign (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)... The Capricorn mum takes her role of making her babies the best they can be in life very seriously. She isn’t about to entertain your tears if you fall off your bicycle, but instead will spur you to get up and try and try again till you succeed. The taskmaster in her gets mistaken for being an ice queen, but she just wants her children to be tough because she probably didn’t have it easy growing up herself. Your vision of seeing her in the kitchen whipping up a beautiful roast after a tough day will just remain a figment of your imagination. READ MORE: Calling all mothers: Here's what the rest of 2017 has in store for you, according to your horoscope and A walk down memory lane with my mum part one: Julie Tan The Aquarian mum enjoys her freedom as well as her mummy role. She is definitely the epitome of coolness. Her bohemian and eccentric style is a concoction for a fun childhood. She hopes her children will learn to love the earth the way she does and be educated by the environment they live in. She instils the same carefree attitude in her children. It’s important to her that her children learn form their own experiences and learn things on their own rather than her providing all the lessons they need to know to live in this world. She will provide the environment for your learning experiences, but won’t offer an opinion so you can form your own. It’s not that she wants to see you get hurt or upset, but she feels life itself provides the best education that you can get. You are a fire sign (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius)... You will most likely be best friends. You understand and appreciate her carefree manner and how her relaxed parenting skills manage to equip you with life skills that will live with you for the rest of your life. She can be a disciplinarian when it’s required. For example, if there is homework to be done, she will get you to do it in the park instead of being cooped up in your room! So essentially, you have the coolest mum on the block. To everyone’s surprise, you would probably be getting the best grades in school. You love the fact that she nurtures and understands the carefree spirit in you and encourages you to try anything to discover for yourself what fits and what doesn’t! You are an earth sign (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn)... You can lose patience with Aquarius mum at times. But she definitely opens up a whole new world of understanding life for you. You wish she would be a little more normal and less embarrassing, but you can never fault the memorable childhood she has provided you. She isn’t your conventional mum and doesn’t keep time very well, but if you are looking for some encouragement and a feel-good time, then you have come to the right place. She values her me-time so don’t count on her to be a hands-on granny! You are an air sign (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius)... You either get her or you don’t - as they say, opposites attract. You can be too much like each other that it annoys you, or you could end up understanding each other and get on like house on fire. But you are guaranteed a fantastic time whenever you are with her. Her quirky and eccentric thoughts open up a whole new world for you and you just feed off each other’s ideas! If you want a sensible and normal opinion on something, then she isn’t the person to go to. You are a water sign (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)... It’s not such a bad combination here. She does love spending time with family, but not in the conventional way. She is extremely flamboyant, while you enjoy keeping a low profile. So sometimes you prefer to stay out of her limelight. But private time with her is just fantastic. The stories she shares and experiences she provides are just mind boggling to you. She isn’t going to spend too much time engaging you when you sulk or feel low. Her advice would be "Snap out of it! Life is too short!" READ MORE: Calling all mothers: Here's what the rest of 2017 has in store for you, according to your horoscope and A walk down memory lane with my mum part one: Julie Tan The fish sign in the zodiac can be very fluid in her mannerisms and make things look very effortless. She enjoys being a mum and makes the task look fun and fashionable too. You will always find her impeccable-looking, but don’t expect that of her home. She lives in what you call an organised mess. She always makes sure to pull out all the stops to spoil her children and let them do what they want. She isn’t too good with a timetable so this can pose a problem when her kids start to disrespect her. Despite all that, you are your children’s biggest fan and are always there to cheer them on, or will be ever-ready with a cuddle and kiss when they do good. You are a fire sign (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius)... It’s a nice combination here. She is ever ready to listen to your plans and dreams and always offers her praise and encouragement. She isn’t the kind to hold you back in your plans, so you can run free and do whatever you feel your calling is. Because of all the attention she has showered on you, you feel like you can achieve whatever you want. You always go back to her for a cheer-up when things go wrong, because you know she will make you feel ok and ready to take on the world again. You are an earth sign (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn)... There is a love-hate relationship going on here. You get confused with her lack of structure and discipline and sometimes end up being the parent in the relationship. You do however love the family time that you spend together. She is full of support for you no matter what, and that’s what you hold dearly. You can’t comprehend her organised mess so she can’t possibly be your role model there. But on the whole, you can’t fault her in her efforts to make you feel special growing up. You are an air sign (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius)... You can have the best chats with your Pisces mum. Being very communicative, you will find the perfect listening ear in her. You can be assured of her telling you just what you want to hear as well. There is comfort and warmth in the Pisces mum. When you are tired of floating around, she is just the person you want to park yourself with. She is reassuring, calm and relaxed. You are a water sign (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)... It’s like peas in a pod. Everything just flows. You both appreciate beautiful things so there will be endless shopping and pampering sessions together. You don’t have to say very much around each other as you just feel there isn’t a need to. There is a sense of comfort and assurance of being in each other’s company and you just want to spend as much time as you can with her.
