Astrology is a great tool to guide you in bringing out the best in your kids. In early childhood, the Moon takes the spotlight in astrology and interpreting a kid’s birth chart, but we can also get a sneak peek at how other planets will play a role in their late teens to adult lives.

Venus, the planet of love and creativity, shows how a child gives and receives love. It’s not just about hearts and flowers, though, because Venus also hints at a kid’s artistic talents.
