Does it Matter When Your Baby is Born

As you may know I have 4 boys – each one born in a different season. I was thinking about star signs the other day and discovered that they cover 3 of the 4 elements (Earth, Air & Fire – I do not have a Water sign baby).

It got me to thinking about whether it matters when your baby is born has any influence on their personality and/or life.

There’s a lot of research into the importance of birth order.

Research about children born in August and September.

Summer and Winter babies.

And of course each element and star sign has their characteristics.


My oldest is a Capricorn – this makes him a Winter Baby and Earth.

As a first born I definitely agree with “Works to impress others to get their admiration

He is very intelligent.

Earth people are not fond of change, they like stability” – but then again don’t a lot of people.


My second son is a Leo, Summer baby, he’s a Fire sign.

 Puts off tasks till they can be done perfectly or till they have to be done” definitely NOT he likes to get things done and out the way – but maybe that’s our parenting style.

I don’t think he struggles academically due to his birth order.

I like the way it says Fire can be good or destructive but really disagree about him being self-centred.


My third born is a Libra which makes him an Air sign (Autumn).

There is no justice so you have to help the victims” I could believe this because he is a very kind natured boy.

Air is the most necessary element, being necessary to fire, earth and water” I like this (probably because I am also an Air sign) but because I do feel that he is the link that makes joins all my children but I put that down to where he is in the birth order.

Also reiterated with ” Bringing harmony, life and balance to the world”


My fourth is a Spring baby and only just a Taurus – which also makes him an Earth sign.

Entertains others with witty expressions so they will want them around” – definitely.

Taurus – stubborn – again definitely.

Earth sign – not fond of change – no indeed.


How much of this is true to your children? And did you think about this before you had them?

This is my Thursday’s Thought.
