I received an email from baby.com announcing family horoscopes. I checked it out because I like reading those. This is what it said about my son:
About the Aquarius Child
A Different Drummer
“Marching to the beat of his own drummer” describes your Aquarius child to a T. This little one is offbeat to the core and will surprise you repeatedly with his inventiveness and originality.
Aquarius children are quite social and tend to have lots of friends, and the more widely diverse their play buddies’ backgrounds and cultures, the better.
Aquarius children are attracted to diversity and new experiences. Your little Aquarius might like unusual foods that other kids won’t even try — think hot peppers, strong cheeses, raw oysters, and the like — or he might spend hours in his room, inventing something technical, functional, and all-around incredible.
Pursuing their own freedom and individuality is among their primary needs, so as the parent of an Aquarius child, you should give him plenty of space and autonomy. If they aren’t allowed to express themselves as they see fit, Aquarius children can become rebellious or, alternatively, stubborn and quietly depressed.
Let your child dress himself as early as he can, and give him plenty of books, art supplies, and other tools to foster his unique creativity. Aquarius children tend to be quite intelligent. They’re naturally progressive in their thinking and their perspective on the world, so they might become excellent problem solvers.
Your Aquarius child may surprise you with his interests and life choices, but if you can stay open to the ways his mind works, you’re likely to find he’s a genius in his own right. These children just need time to find the best way of expressing their brilliance.
