What kind of Grandma, Nana or Meme are you? What about Grandpa, Poppy or Pa Pa? Do you allow the grand kids to play their video games or text at the table, or do you live for now and just enjoy their company? Are you the tolerant, quiet grandparent or perhaps the more generous grandparent? In our complexities, do we project ourselves through our signs, and are we forgetting this isn't simply about generations, but also the signs of your grandchildren as well. These are your children, one step removed, "Just like little Johnny, only an Aries." Just like little Sue, only more ambitious or more stubborn. We love our grandchildren unconditionally, but how well can we relate to them?
As a Virgo you have the reputation of being reserved or letting others take the lead. How wonderful for a grandchild, to have an adult who actually wants to listen to them! Virgo is a Mutable Earth sign ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication. They're quick learners, willing to do anything for those they truly love. Your sensitivity means your refrigerator will be covered with amateur art projects and you'll gladly listen to a five-year olds ten minute explanation of their Play Doh sculptures. Don't let your own desire for perfection come across as knit-picking or fault-finding, grandchildren are already perfect, you just need to tell them so.
