All sorts of fascinating astro-relations show up in families. The ones I notice most often are that children tend to have the same Rising Sign as the Sun or Rising of their parents AND strong synastry (inter-chart aspects) involving the karmic Moon’s Nodes. But the Sun sign relations are fun and useful to observe. Or even just the Elements.
When I was growing up, one of my first astro-observations were my Water Sign cousins. Five of them – all in one family and with Capricorn parents who did not know WHAT had hit them. The Capricorns worked like maniacs to provide every education, sustenance, comfort & security. They were uber-Earth-signs. The two Pisceans, two Scorps and one Cancerian were all towering blue-eyed tornadoes of drama, seances, romance, intrigue, science fantasy, tears, more drama, passion and apparent inability to live via any known earthly routine what-so-ever. Whether the Water Sign children were refusing to touch money, running away to join the Hare Krishnas, adopting elaborate disguises in which to attend a school they were not enrolled at or breeding ravens in the treehouse, they lived by other-worldly rituals that sent the Capricorns mad.
It helps SO much to know that a Cancerian parent WILL go ape if you dislike the food they cooked for you whilst a Gemini would be more likely to be irritated if you failed to pass on good goss. Or, more elegantly, “useful intelligence.” Try a quick analysis of the Elements (Fire, Earth, Air, Water signs) in your family of origin – see if it fits.
