Dealing with your mother-in-law is not always easy because of how different your personalities can be. Of course, there's also the zodiac sign compatibility that might be making things a little more difficult. Women are always trying to please their mother-in-laws just to prove that she did not just come to steal her son away. Because of a mother's attachment to her son, sometimes, mothers unconsciously try to control their sons’ relationship with their wives in different ways and manners. However, maybe understanding your partner's mother a little better and learning about her zodiac sign and traits can help you learn how to deal with your mother-in-law according to her horoscope.
Aries Mother-In-Law (March 21 - April 19)
An Aries woman can be selfish and jealous because she feels like she is dealing with a fierce competition that is fighting her for her son's love. So, don't wait for her to love you instantly. She will always want to pamper her son. It is best to accept and welcome her visits a lot because it will make her happy to see her son as many times as she wants and that is the best way to approach her and allow her to love you.
Taurus (20 April - 20 May)
The Taurus can be easily pissed off. If she feels like you’re upsetting her son or causing him trouble in his life, she will think of getting you out of the picture as soon as possible. A Taurus mother-in-law constantly pampers her son. Although many girls believe that dealing with her would be very easy, it is actually difficult because of how easily she can get upset and angry. So, try to avoid conflict with your husband or fiancé in front of her and keep things nice and civil so as to not provoke her.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
It's not easy to understand a Gemini woman or mother-in-law. A Gemini mother-in-law is not outspoken and does not speak openly about how she feels or what she thinks; she does the opposite. If she doesn't like you she will treat you with love and might try to provoke problems or throw hints of her concerns from under the rug. In spite of all this, once you establish a nice solid relationship with her, things will start to get better.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
The Cancer woman has a distinct personality because it's a mixture between strength and compassion. She loves to form new relationships and when she puts something in her mind, she pursues it. She is also very loving with her children. A Cancer woman has strong intuition, so be attentive and make sure you avoid lying to her for she will know. Additionally, because she's very emotional, once you befriend her, she will treat you like a daughter. So, make it your goal to always win her friendship.
Leo (23 July - 22 August)
Your mother-in-law is a tough character because she always has the urge to take control of people's lives around her, especially her children. She also likes to be treated like a queen so that's something you need to have in mind as well. Avoid giving her any criticism; it most probably will not end well. Moreover, remember that she always likes to lead. So, to avoid trouble, try not to get in the way of that and keep her away from your personal life as much as possible.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
The Virgo woman is a smart and tactful person who cares about every detail of her life. She also has an obsession with cleanliness and being organized. So, make sure your home is free from clutter and dust before she comes over. Virgo women constantly criticize everyone, but don't like to be criticized. So, be careful and avoid talking to her in a passive or irritated tone.
Libra (23 September - 22 October)
The Libra woman is one of the best mothers that you will ever meet. She always likes to help and is very smart, kind, and gentlewoman-like. If you're having problems with your partner, she will help without invading your privacy or going too far.
Scorpio (23 October - 21 November)
The Scorpio woman does not trust people easily, so you will have to fall under many tests. And just when you think you passed and she started to trust you, you will find that she is yet unable to fully trust you. Always try to prove to her that you are a trustworthy person. There are also some Scorpio women who love to control and will try to interfere in their daughters-in-law’s lives, so be careful and avoid objecting a lot in front of her.
Sagittarius (22 November - 21 December)
A Sagittarius woman is fun and loves life, adventures, and new experiences. If you want to travel anywhere, do not hesitate to ask her to come with you. Although she's really fun, when it comes to talking to her about deep topics, you'll be surprised that she can be very helpful and can give wonderful advice.
Capricorn (22 December - 19 January)
The Capricorn woman is a serious and ambitious person, looking for success in everything, whether at work, her personal life, or dealing with her children. She always likes to show off people's positive traits in front of others, whether it's her son or his wife. However, she has a very serious personality, so it will be very hard to laugh and have fun with her.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
It is very difficult to anticipate her behavior or understand what an Aquarius woman is thinking about. However, she is organized and loves to follow the rules. You will find that she would want to do everything on time or in an organized manner. She likes to surround herself with intelligent people that are successful. So, if you project that, she will treat you with a lot of respect as if you’re her own daughter.
Pisces (19 February - 20 March)
The Pisces woman is sensitive, emotional, and romantic. She is probably one of the kindest mother-in-laws. If you're going through something difficult, don't hesitate to ask for her help as she will give you the advice you need. However, because she's a sensitive person, avoid criticizing her because she will feel bad for herself and it might end up being very dramatic.
