"The term "nuclear family" was coined by anthropologist George Murdock in 1949. It was the height of the nuclear era and the early days of what would become the Cold War. Murdock saw in atom the appropriate metaphor for heterosexual, married parents and their children, which were considered the foundation of society and a powerful means of reproducing the population. These same post-World War II and post-Hiroshima "nuclear families" were in the midst of producing America's baby-boom generation."

maybe one of those signs (or both of them!) are in your astrology chart as your moon sign and/or rising sign or something else.
