THE WATER-SIGN PARENT AND EARTH-SIGN CHILD
There is much sympathy and compatibility here. Both are quite devoted to and protective toward one another, as well as to the rest of the family. Both are also essentially conservative in the sense of being very security conscious and attached to the known and familiar. Both intensely dislike and are often fearful of taking risks or making changes—anything that unsettles their comfortable nest. A strong bond is likely to develop between these two—so much so that as this child grows up he or she is apt to feel very concerned with and responsible for the parent's well-being, and the parent comes to rely (sometimes too much so) on this "good" son or daughter.
One difference between them is that the water-sign parent is more emotional and fluid than the earth-sign child, who tends to be more even, unemotional, and matter-of-fact.
