Raising a Pisces baby? Find out the traits and challenges you may face
Medium Ashleigh looks at the traits of a Pisces baby (Feb 19 - Mar 20) and highlights the challenges you may face according to your star sign.
Pisces Baby | February 19 - March 20
The Pisces baby is emotional, empathic and strongly intuitive. However, they are commonly found clinging to their parents and requiring extra special cuddle attention as their emotional sense of well-being demands to be frequently nurtured.
A Piscean baby will have big, deep and “old-soul” eyes that appear to see directly into your soul. You can spot a Pisces child through their eyes alone.
There's no changing their minds
Defined by emotion, you can expect your little one to either wake up happy or wake up sad and have that mood be reflected throughout the whole day despite whatever efforts you give to change it.
The Piscean babies are natural empaths, which means that in the case of siblings, they will attempt to give their parents a break when their siblings seem more demanding than normal.
Being natural empaths, your Piscean baby will instantly judge those around them and either take or not to others. If your Piscean baby does not like what they feel around someone close to you, there will be no convincing otherwise and your baby will reject being comforted by them.
The emotional Pisces baby will frequently stare off into space as a newborn and continuously throughout childhood, as their imagination and creativity take over and they dream of wonderful things they want to achieve (even if it’s a case of food as a newborn).
Pisces babies are naturally shy and gentle and take great comfort in being held. Your Pisces baby will require lots of cuddles and it’s not uncommon to find Pisces babies finding great comfort in sleeping with their parents, especially as toddlers, where their demand is commonly placed on parents to allow them to cuddle up at night.
Self-soothing is a common problem with Piscean babies as they seek comfort from others, not independently.
You may have a natural psychic on your hands
The Pisces babies have the emotional maturity and a sense of selflessness from the start, you can expect your Pisces to grow fast and in a sense, always be seemingly years above their actual age.
Throughout their schooling years, you may find that your Piscean child will be caught in situations where others take advantage of your Pisceans selflessness, which leads the Piscean child to seek older, wiser friends to avoid being caught in the conflict again.
Piscean children fear the disappointment of others. When they are spoken to in strict or disappointed tones, the Piscean child instantly bursts into tears and seeks solitude to collect their emotions and apologise for causing upset. This behaviour also leads to the opportunity for the Pisces baby to be easily manipulated by others, even if they don’t agree with the cause of action.
Pisces children often communicate with deceased family members and have natural psychic experiences. As a parent to a Pisces child, you will experience seeing them gurgle and chat away at seemingly nothing.
How to parent a Pisces baby according to your star sign
As an Aries personality, you have a naturally positive, energetic and happy approach which the emotional Pisces will reap the rewards from. You can expect many happy days connecting to your child through fun and happy emotions, as even the smallest things will result in big smiles.
The Aries mum at times can be too honest and insensitive in their approach, which can leave the overly emotional Pisces child to feel at times that they are a great disappointment.
An Aries mum can also develop a “because I said so” attitude, which can result in arguments as the Pisces child will question to develop a sense of understanding as to the reasons behind their mum's decisions.
The Taurus mum is patient and diplomatic, which allows the Pisces child to feel secure within their parent's love. Taurus mums are quite often supportive of others dreams, which for the Piscean child will nurture their imagination and self-motivation.
Taurus mums can at times be self-indulgent, which creates a lack of understanding from the sometimes-too- selfless Piscean child. Taurus mums often encourage their children to have many
strong friendships and may struggle to understand why their Piscean child can quickly reject a possible friend based, or become too shy to interact, from their first meeting.
Gemini mums tend to have a youthful, “cool” attitude and appearance with their children. They are not natural disciplinarians and they tend to develop an understanding of their children’s dreams and desires, which is highly beneficial for creating positive self-esteem within a Piscean child.
Gemini mums are heavily defined by thought and quick-wit, with a less emotional complex. Gemini mothers can potentially become unemotional, showcasing their affection and love through practical and materialistic means rather than emotional support and conversation. Piscean children are less on the materialistic and practical things in life, so it would not matter how many times you took them out or what you bought for them, they would still be in search for that cuddle and emotional support and may become rebellious if they are not receiving it.
Cancerian mums have a nurturing approach to parenting that the Piscean child will benefit from. Cancers are also quite intuitive and caring, so both mum and child will have like-minds and find a lot in common within each other. Nothing and nobody will break down the bond between a Cancerian mother and Piscean child.
Cancerian mums being emotional in nature run the risk of driving their Piscean child into an overly emotional state through being too-nurtured. Cancerian mums quite often are overprotective and controlling, which is heightened when they learn their Piscean child is naturally selfless and empathic. However, like all of us, each child needs to be set free to learn from their own mistakes and go through their own hardships to grow stronger.
Both Leo mums are often proud of their warm, welcoming and positive household. This creates a naturally positive atmosphere for the Piscean child, which as they have strong empathic abilities, allows them to maintain optimal happiness and wellbeing.
Leo’s don’t mind a bit of mess around the home and can laugh off children’s mistakes. This allows the Piscean to feel more at ease from the fear of being a disappointment whilst also allowing them to learn from their mistakes. A Leo mum will openly accept a Piscean’s apology and shrug off a bad situation.
Leo mums can at times be overdramatic and stubborn regarding situations, which can heavily drive a Piscean child to turn against themselves in upset. Leo mothers can also like to have a superiority and command over their children, which will be questioned frequently by the Pisces child if they do not “feel right” about it. Frustratingly, a Pisces child will almost always prove their parents wrong in a situation where their intuition is telling them to go against their parents, which for the proud Leo, may be difficult to swallow.
Virgo mums commonly have a highly energetic, fun and witty approach to their parenting. The Piscean child will thrive off being surrounded by fun, positivity and laughter. Virgo mums tend to
also have a humanitarian outlook on life, which creates a deep understanding of their Pisces child’s need to help and support others.
Virgo mums can at times be overly demanding and critical of their children, especially as a Virgo mum tends to be able to read a situation in a detailed, precise and logical manner. It can be hard at times for the Virgo mum to understand her Piscean child’s decisions and actions that are lead by emotion, rather than logic and create an argument which at times can be a little too harsh for the Piscean.
Libran mothers tend to be cooperative and fair-minded, allowing the Piscean child to develop a sense of balance and wellbeing between being emotional and too emotional in nature. Libran mums tend to also have a humanitarian outlook on life, which creates a deep understanding of their Pisces child’s need to help and support others.
Libran mothers commonly make master manipulators, which gives a window of opportunity for them to convince their child to take on extra burdens or go against their own belief, in the Piscean child’s need to support their mother.
Both a Scorpio mother and Piscean child will have strong intuitive abilities, allowing them both to work at a deeper level of understanding together. Scorpio mothers also tend to be emotional and passionate, particularly towards their children, which will create an extremely close emotional tie between mother and child.
Scorpios generally have a very protective streak and can come across as strict or stubborn. The Scorpio mother can become easily frustrated by their Piscean child’s rebellion in situations where their emotions lead them against their mother's wishes. Scorpio mothers can also be quite moody, which will set up for either an extremely great day together, or an extremely bad one from the moment they wake up.
The Sagittarius mother will often be about inspiring and stimulating their children through intellectual means, but also maintain a fair-minded approach. The Piscean child will benefit from focusing on other stimulations, outside of emotions and has the opportunity to have a very balanced and successful life through the support of their mother.
Sagittarius mothers at times can be careless and blundering, which can create big emotional conflict between the overly-caring and sensitive Piscean child and mum. Sagittarius mothers will at times
also struggle to take responsibility for their own mistakes, which will send them in a furious spin when their Piscean child makes note of their mistake and attempts to prove why they were wrong.
Capricorn mums are often found providing common sense solutions to their children’s problems. A Piscean child will benefit from this insight as they are often blinded to solutions by their own emotions.
The challenge of a Capricorn parent with a Piscean child is understanding and forgiving their child’s mistakes. If a Capricorn parent is struggling to accept and forgive a mistake, the Piscean child can further downward-spiral into a place of self-pity and self-hate, which will only frustrate the Capricorn parent further.
Aquarius mothers tend to be open communicators with their children, which the Piscean baby will benefit from the freedom to talk about their wellbeing. Aquarian mothers also tend to have strong humanitarian outlooks, which will help develop their understanding of the naturally selfless Piscean child’s actions, so long as it’s for the greater good of humanity.
Aquarius mothers have stubborn and analytical mindsets that will struggle to fathom why a Piscean child is so willing to drag themselves through the mud in the aid and support of others. Another common challenge for an Aquarius mother is to remember to give emotional support to their Piscean child, who will be quick to crumble if their parent remains emotionally detached for too long.
Being of like-minds, the Piscean mother and child will develop an extremely intuitive, trusting, gentle and loving relationship with each other. This bond can be developed so strongly, it seeks to keep them strong for life in the face of any obstacle.
On the negative, Piscean mothers can become dependent on their Piscean children as they grow older. They can also foster depressive, self-pitying and temperamental attitudes together. Self-blame can be a problem for both mum and child, and the Piscean mum will have to remember that they cannot continuously blame themselves nor allowing their child to when facing difficult situations.
