There are quite few common astrological combinations that are often found within families. They form an astrological structure as well as special relations between the family members. These family astrological combinations usually hold a karmatic meaning.
A ruling planet –
All family member will have, in this constelation, the same planet as a ruling or dominant planet in their charts. For example, an uranian family may have an aquarius dad, a mom with uranus as the ruling planet of her chart, one child with uranus on 1st house and one child with aquarius moon. The meaning is that this family was blessed with an uranian energy – they will be freedom loving people, keen to the new, considered somewhat weird as a family. Maybe they will have an unusual way of living, habits or relationships.
same sign kids –
Two, three or more children with same sun sign. The sunsign could be a telltale for the whole family energy: for example, taurus kids will indicate a country life and a tendency for foods: this family likes going on picnics, make food and eat, and induldge in the good life.
parent’s sun = child’s moon –
In this case, child will “take on” one of the parents’ sun sign and “embrace” it as his own moon sign. This kind of energy usually indicates a special connection between this parent and that child. Even if not shown, they may have a very strong understanding of each other and expresses each of other’s needs (unless other planets are opposing each other)
6-8 relationships –
With this constellation, a child’s sun sign would be placed on the 6th or 8th house from their parents sun sign. For example: a Capricorn parent with a Leo child or with a Gemini child. A Cancer parent with a Saggitarius or Aquarius child. And so on. This one considers to be a karmatic relationship, too: it usually forms a relationship in which both sides learn an important lesson about themselves thanks to the other.
