Father's Day Horoscope: Great gift ideas based on his star-sign
Aquarius January 21 – February 20
Aquarians may face a struggle in the coming months as the Sun spends time in their fifth house and “mingles” with Saturn in Sagittarius in their eleventh house of community. These dads – as exemplified by Ashton Kucher – may feel as if they are suffocating, especially at work; perhaps some of the people they work with try to be dominant which makes them feel like they want to leave this place as soon as possible. Some Aquarian dads will leave this place because they will feel that it is no longer serving them. The Sun-Saturn relation will offer a new and better opportunities for them in the coming months, so they need not worry. Instead, a nice getaway with their families will be more than good. Aquarians will do anything to make their children happy and would enjoy spending Father’s day with their beloved little ones. If your father is an Aquarius make sure you hug them and tell them you love them because these are the dads of the zodiac who are most supportive of their children and who will do just anything to help them achieve their dreams.
Gift Suggestions: When comes to presents, Aquarian fathers will be super happy with some interesting gadget or a telescope that will give these knowledge-thirsty people a glimpse of the universe.
Pisces February 21 - March 20
Home is always the place where Pisces dads would rather be, but this period is also great for career goals. In the coming months, Gemini Sun in Pisces’s fourth house of home/parents will face Saturn in Sagittarius and Pisces’s tenth house of career. These two will sit exactly opposite each other in the sky, creating an ideal balance between home and career. It is a wonderful time for Pisces dad (think Daniel Craig) to work harder and plan better. Some Pisces dad will take the best of both worlds and will bring work at home. The Piscean dad is very attached to his brood; these dads are careful, emotionally caring and will do anything to spend more time with their kids. Make sure you create an unforgettable and lovely Father’s day for your Pisces dad.
Gift Suggestions: Pisces fathers will most likely be mindlessly happy with a new camera; you can also pamper your dad with day spa or even sending him on a surprise cruise.
Aries March 21 – April 20
Aries will have some wonderful travel opportunities thanks to Saturn, the planet that finally stabilizes in Sagittarius which is Aries’ global ninth house of travel. Whether you are going to visit a friend or be part of a family gathering, you will still find a business opportunity during this period. Whatever happens, Aries dads will love to spend some time with their children, especially for the 2nd half of the year. These are the zodiac fathers (cue Jackie Chan) that love excitement and adventures and their children know that they will never feel bored near them. Aries fathers enjoy spending time doing something active such as hiking or playing some sports. You and your father can spend an hour or two playing tennis for example.
Gift Suggestions: Aries dads would be pleasantly surprised with a personalised present such as toolkit or a brand new tennis racket. If you are on a budget a simple personalized t-shirt for your Aries dad is a pretty good idea.
Taurus April 21 – May 20
Taurus dads may feel a bit anxious because of business matters. In the coming months, their entire work progress goes quite slow and they feel that they slowly go crazy about it. They perfectly know that every reaction requires action and they do it, but somehow results are missing. This is the perfect time for a calculated risk (although we are in a Saturn period and Saturn does not encourage gambling and risks). Children with Taurus dads will feel that their old men are in an excellent mood for spending time with the family; their personal relationships are going to be excellent. Taurus dads (such as Wang LeeHom, above) are people who appreciate their families and they are looking forward to spending Father’s day with their little ones (even though you may be in your twenties or thirties, they’ll always see you as their kiddo). The bond is strong between Taurus dads and their children; love, respect, and tradition keep them going.
Gift Suggestions: Taurus fathers would be very happy with a gift that will help them relax such as massagers or a nice good pillow. Taurus representatives are people who love good food and truly enjoy spending time cooking it and eating it. An ideal gift could be a nice father-child dinner in his favorite restaurant.
Gemini May 21 – June 20
Gemini fathers may feel a little confused in the next couple of months and would seek bigger support from their family and especially good friends. This is the time they will see who are the real ones and who simply “don’t have time for them”. Neptune is throwing some fog over the twins’ eyes and they may find it hard to see where they are going or what they are doing. The next few months, it will be a wonderful period for Gemini dads (good for you, Andie Chen) who work in a “Neptunian” field, such as arts, film, psychology or anything connected with healing. During this tougher and confusing period, Gemini dads will find a great solace and comfort in their homes. Gemini fathers are talkative and are always in the mood to talk to their kids about anything. Ask him for an advice, it will make him feel as if though nothing has changed and that you are still his little boy or girl. Gemini fathers are people who don’t grow old.
Gift Suggestions: If you plan to get them anything for this Father’s Day, make sure it’s something gadgety – a new phone, a GPS or why not even a video game console. They would be beyond excited!
Cancer June 21 –July 20
In the coming months, the gentle Cancerians fathers such as Benedict Cumberbatch, will want to re-focus on themselves due to the Sun that resides in their twelfth house of illusions which opposes Saturn in their wellness zone. They would feel stressed out but yet they will know that focusing on their mind and subconscious (meditations, writing journals, seeing a therapist) will make them feel better. From mid-June, Neptune will start its annual five-month retrograde in Pisces and Cancer’s ninth house of travel, study, and personal growth. This family-oriented sign will love to include their loved ones in their journey or would simply go home and spend time with folks they love.
Gift Suggestions: If your father is Cancer you already know that they would enjoy a family vacation or weekend together; you can surprise him with a history book because this is the sign who loves learning about the past and where they came from. Anyway, as carrying and loving parents, Cancer dads will mostly be happy to spend some time with you, and if you involve them in an activity for two you’d melt their heart. Spend half of the day fishing together and the rest of the day enjoying some home cooked meal.
Leo July 21 – August 20
Saturn’s position in Leo’s fifth house of creativity/pleasures and has been playing games with them and their egos for almost three years. Leo dads are perhaps in a tough period. They worry a lot but this cycle will finally end on December 19, 2017. In the past three years, the proud Leos were not able to get things just by being charming; they really had to work hard in order to achieve their goals. In the period ahead, the Sun will give them a chance to present themselves to the world exactly how they want to – shiny and proud. Leo dads such as Christopher Lee, will finally be able to cross things off of their to-do lists and not only it will make them happy, but also their families will feel great for their success.
Gift Suggestions: During this harsh period, their families remain very dear to them, and Leo dads love what they have created, especially their children. Leo fathers are big children too and would be super happy if they get something personalized such as shaving kit or running shoes. Also, Leos love their hair and if you give them a nice comb or schedule a barber’s appointment for them, it would make them absolutely happy.
Virgo August 21 – September 20
From mid-June, the Gemini Sun enters in Virgo’s tenth house of career and will be checked by Saturn in Virgo’s fourth house of home and feelings. Virgo fathers, such as Hong Kong actor-singer Julian Cheung, prefer respect over love and will have good success in both categories. This period is excellent for Virgo fathers to give attention to women in their families such as daughters, wives or mothers. This is an ideal period to focus on long-term family issues and finally glide them up. Virgo dads are people who love things clean and clear and not only in their homes but in their relationships as well. Although female figures are requiring their attention, it doesn’t mean that if you are a guy that your Virgo dad will not pay attention to you.
Gift Suggestions: Virgo fathers will mostly be pleased with a new book or a game that will require their intelligence. These zodiac fathers will also be happy with a cleaning kit or a new membership to the near spa center where they can clean out all the toxins in their bodies.
Libra September 21 – October 20
From mid-June, Gemini Sun will be checked by Saturn which is located in Libra’s third house of partnerships. This is a good period for Libra dads – a shoutout to first-time dad Edison Chen, who just feted his baby daughter Alaia’s 100-day milestone – to talk to people they have issues with, may it be a colleague, partner, children or parents. Whether it is going to be a reassuring talk, or telling these people that they matter to them, Libra dads will make sure to say it out loud. If this conversation is about a past promise (especially with business partners) Libra dads must set things clear; it is perfectly all right to have second thoughts. Libra fathers will have a good period ahead to pursue their goals all alone and enjoy success with their families.
Gift Suggestions: Libra fathers love holidays because they can spend time with their families; your Libra dad will be glad to plan out Father’s Day with you. These dads are fun-loving men who still love the night lights and would be honored if you take them out for a drink or at the movies. They would enjoy dressing up as only Libras know, getting them a bottle of cologne or perfume will make them very happy too!
Scorpio October 21 – November 20
Scorpios will have an amazing period for managing money. From mid-June till end of 2017, Saturn will enter in their income zone and this will send caution signs to the Sun that is now in Scorpio’s eighth house of investments. This period is excellent for making money, but Scorpios dads, or would-be dads such as Aaron Kwok, must know how they will spend their earnings. Smart investments are a must if they want to have a safe and carefree future, both for themselves and their families. But while they are focused on making money and making sure their career goes to the right way, they need to slow down a little bit and think of their family. Your Scorpio father will be glad to spend quality time together with you. Scorpios are very protective of their family, especially of their children and would go step further to make sure nothing bothers them.
Gift Suggestions: Surprise your Scorpio dad with a quality old wine or cook a nice dinner for him. These fathers will also enjoy a mystery novel or tickets for a nice theatrical production.
Sagittarius November 21 – December 20
Saturn enters Sagittarius from mid-June and will meet the Sun in Gemini and Sagittarius’ house of partnerships. Saturn will have its final, six-month stretch of a three-year journey through Sagittarius; this is not a great period for messing around, especially with your energy. Sagittarius dads such as Qi Yuwu need to see where their thoughts go. Good introspection will help Sagittarians realize that they have overgrown certain partnerships in both personal and business area. This sign won’t stay in a place out of habit especially if they don’t have benefits anymore. It’s a great period for family relations; Sagittarian dads would love to spend father’s day with you; they always feel that children bring joy to their life no matter how hard things are for them.
Gift Suggestions: If you have a Sagittarian dad then you know perfectly well that a nice trip or adventurous activity will make them the happiest – that, and spending time with you equals a happy Sagittarian father. A joke book or a trip to watch a comedy show will thrill your dad too.
Capricorn December 21 – January 20
Capricorn’s ruling planet, Saturn will enter and stay in their twelfth house of illusions and will make its annual opposition to the Sun in their sixth house of health (mental or physical). Capricorn dads are rational people and have zero problems to make a clear distinction between fiction and reality but Saturn has moved to Sagittarius and “lives” there for almost three years, which puts Capricorns in a little bit more introspective mode. Once Saturn moves out of Sagittarius in December 2017, Capricorn’s cosmic guardian moves on to their sign for the next three years and will put them back into their preferred state – eyes on the prize. This introspective period will make Capricorn fathers such as Jay Chou think a lot of their happy memories and make plans for their future. This is also an excellent period to call your dad and organise something for Father’s Day. Capricorn dads may appear a little cold and untouched by drama but they surely value time spent with their children.
Gift Suggestions: To make the day even more memorable for your Capricorn father, get them something practical – a nice pen, an umbrella, a set of good knives and so on.
