Hi all! Ever thought of getting your special mom a gift based on her astrological sign? Want to give her something that really speaks to her personality? Maybe this year it’s time to shake it up and try something different and unique!  Though many mothers are not with their families any longer, there are  incredible special women in our lives who bring us the gifts of a mother’s love and warmth. How about surprising them this year?

So, just last weekend I was talking with my favorite astrologer and friend, Phyllis Mitz, about how much fun it would be to write a post about that very thing! And Phyllis graciously offered to put it together!

So here, dear readers, is a beautiful list, written by Phyllis, of each of the 12 astrological signs along with short, lively descriptions of each along with recommendations for “special gifts” associated for a mom born under that sign.

Aries (March 21- April 19) Always up for an adventure, your Aries mom loves to be surprised! Treat her to a new experience, or to the cool new “it” item she’ll be the first to have. Beauty gifts that highlight Aries’ face are always a winner: A pair of hot new sunglasses, a flattering hat, or a scarf in her favorite color of red are the kind of gifts that make Aries mom’s hearts sing!

Taurus (April 20 – May 21)  Practical, yet luxury-loving, Taurus moms love things that bring comfort and pleasure to their senses. A soft, yummy sweater is always a perfect gift, as is a beautifully a scented candle, or, of course a massage. Plus Taurus moms especially love things that bring indulgence to her hobbies, like special gardening tools or luxurious kitchen gadgets. Celebrate Taurus simply: Good food, comfortable relaxation is their idea of Heaven.

Gemini (May 22 – June 21) Good at everything and interested in a host of subjects, your Gemini mom loves gifts that open her world, educate her, entertain her or take her somewhere novel. Theatre tickets, trips to anywhere, good books, games, or a class to learn new language are the kinds of gifts that delight your clever Gemini mom.

Cancer: (June 22 – July 22) Cancer moms love their children and their home more than anything in the world, so gifts about her kids or that enhance her home are always treasured! A family photo is always special. An ancestry study would thrill her. Or, something for the gourmet shop that makes your Cancer mom’s kitchen even homier, or filled with even more food will definitely make her heart sing! PS: Remember to include a handwritten note about how much you love her!

Leo: (July 23 – Aug 22) Your huge-hearted, glamorous Leo mom loves the grandness and pageantry of gift giving, so make her day a festive celebration! Jewelry and flowers and luxurious, elegant gifts are perfect for Leo – the more pizazz the better. Theater tickets are always a hit.  As would be a beautifully-framed photo of you and your mom enjoying each other. Your mom is so proud of you – let her know that you are proud of her.

Virgo: (August 23 – Sept 22) Intelligent and industrious, your Virgo mom appreciates things that are useful, (not fussy), well made, stream lined in design, and help make her life more orderly. She loves tools of organization, products that make her and others healthier and happier, and even things that make her work better. Planting an herb garden would be totally fun for most Virgo moms, as would a trip to a (well-respected) reflexologist.  Want to please her? Help her get something done.

Libra: (Sept 23 – Oct 22) Elegant and gracious, your Libra mom loves gifts of beauty: gorgeous clothing and jewelry are always a hit, (in her favorite colors, in flattering cuts, of course.)  Flowers and art objects are a definite win, as is music. Since relationships are of utmost importance to your mom, tasteful festivities that celebrate your relationship with her are particularly gratifying. More than anything your Libra mom wants to know she has a good relationship with you!

Scorpio: (Oct 23 – Nov 22) Scorpio moms are passionate and protective, and love gifts that have depth and intrigue to them. Tickets to magic clubs, or mystery games are fascinating to Scorpio, as is taking her to out-of-the-way interesting places. Perhaps a flamingo dance, or a deep-dive into something involving her hobby is oh, so appreciated. Beauty items in deep colors are also perfect for your Scorpio mom. Remember: She is deeply personal: keep her celebrations reserved for only those she loves. And let her know how she impacts your life for the better – that’s the biggest gift you could give her.

 Sagittarius: (Nov 23 – Dec 22) Jovial and philosophical, your Sagittarius mom loves gifts that open her world or inspire her with expansive ideas.  Gifts made in foreign lands, classes in intriguing subjects, inspiring books and movies are favorites for your Sag mom. Long or short trip are always a hit as your mom loves to get away and see something new. And if animals – especially horses, can be involved? Pure Sagittarius heaven!

Capricorn: (Dec 22 – Jan 20) Capable and ambitious your Capricorn mom loves things that are reputed to be the best of the best. If she is outdoorsy, a well-crafted pair of hiking boots or well-designed gloves would be most appreciated. If she’s glamorous look to see what’s considered classic and most respected in fashion, and voila that’s what she’d love. In celebrating her, remember: understated, classy, is best.

Aquarius: (Jan 23 – Feb 18) Individualistic and independent, your Aquarius mom loves things that are truly different and inventive. She loves the unexpected and the zany – items with a quirky twist are most intriguing for her. Trips to an astrologer, acupuncturist or other alternative experiences are exciting for Aquarians. Truly a humanitarian, your mom might also appreciate your donating time or money to one of her causes. When celebrating, the more the merrier!

Pisces: (Feb 19 – Mar 20) Romantic and Very Sensitive, your Pisces mom loves gifts that are sentimental, soft, touching, personal, and blue. Hand-made art that reflects her life, or your feelings about her, is always precious.  Romantic, flowing clothing, or jewelry is also so cherished by Pisces. Tickets to the symphony, or a dream-interpretation class would also be fun! And, if you can celebrate your mom anywhere near water, all the better.

Natal charts make wonderful gifts for new parents, as well as those with young children!

The Best Gift for New Parents Too!

Several years ago my husband and I had Phyllis do Natal (Birth) Chart readings for each of our three grandchildren. We gave them to our daughter and son-in-law as combined Mother’s Day/Father’s Day gifts. I provided Phyllis with each of the kids’ time, date and place of birth and then she provided beautiful readings for each of them. These charts hold the key to personality and paths, along with a child’s strengths and possible weaknesses. What was amazing is that her readings were spot on in observing many of their behaviors early on!

What is beautiful too is that these natal chart readings serve as insights for parents, grandparents and other family members. We get this wonderful opportunity to be aware of and nurture these special little souls in our lives. If we are aware of vulnerabilities and gifts and talents, aren’t we ALL blessed to be ahead of the game in offering soothing and nurturing?

The gift of an astrology reading is an extremely enriching, clarifying tool of remarkable insights and directions about how to live your BEST LIFE and help those little ones too!

I can’t tell you how Phyllis’s gifts have blessed our lives in so many ways. Here’s a little more about Phyllis:

While Mother’s Day is right around the corner, I hope you’ll have fun with the fabulous list Phyllis has put together for us all! Remember too, that you can always give the gift of a reading or a natal reading any time of the year. They make special birthday, anniversary and holiday gifts!

Wishing all you moms and special friends, star power this weekend!
