I astrology, it is the FIFTH HOUSE that indicates the parenting style and any conditions that might surround matters of our children.
The "Sign" you find from the month-day of birth is only the Sun sign, and it is just 1 out of 40-50 factors in the birth chart.
And the Sun represents ONLY how WE try to find an inner sense of wholeness ... the Sign Sun is in indicates what kind of actions help produce inner self-esteem, the "aspects" Sun makes with other planets indicates if it is easy to find inner wholeness or if we have self-esteem problems .. and whether or not our self-esteem attempts us the positive traits of that Sign, or the negative traits.
And the House that Sun is in, indicates where we look in life to try to find inner self-fulfillment. So UNLESS Sun IS in the 5th House, children are NOT going to fulfill that person They may love their kids, but that inner sense of all "being right" with the world and with us in the world ... it won't come from having children.
Any source that talks about Sun signs is NOT a valid astrological source. Sun sign astrology is only about making money off a public that doesn't understand astrology since you easily find your Sun Sign by looking up your month-day of birth on a list. No exact birthdata required, no calculations (by the computer, these days) required.
IF you want to examine your parenting style, do up YOUR birthchart (exact time/date of birth, place of birth). Look at your 5th house, meaning:
- the Sign on the cusp of your 5th house
- the planet which "rules" that Sign: which planet it is, what its aspects are, which Sign it is in, what House it is in
- any planets IN the 5th house (the planet, its aspects, its Sign).
For instance. a client with Pisces on the 5th had on one child who was diagnosed very young as schizophrenic. The client had to sacrifice almost everything to give the child what it needed.
The ruler of Pisces, Neptune, was well-aspected to Sun, Mercury, Pluto .. and the child turned out okay (on medication, but okay) And Neptune was in fair peace-loving Libra in the 11th of friendship. So this client and her now-adult (and basically now-sane) daughter are now very close friends.
Mind you .. MOST people with Pisces on the cusp of their 5th House will NOT have children who are mentally ill. But always there will be SOME Pisces-type tone to how the person parents their children.
As for Capricorn on the 5th House, this gives a parent who takes parenting seriously, and does their best to instill ethics into their child. They may be stern, but they are dutiful. But if Saturn (ruler of Capricorn) is badly-aspected with other planets in the birthchart, they may be very cold and withdrawn from their children and fail to give their kids the emotional nurturing that all young children need. They may see their children as a burden and restriction and resent being a parent.
