Sagittarius Child Traits, Personality, & Characteristics
The Sagittarius child always has a smile on their face, a bounce in their step, and a song on their lips!
However, the one thing that can pierce the Sagittarius heart is seeing others hurt and in pain. Their tender spirit can’t take it and they will do everything in their power to heal that which has been wounded.
Put your comfortable shoes on mom and dad – this is one child who will keep you moving and guessing!
The Sagittarius child is always popular, which is good because they love all that attention. That means your little Archer generally gets rather distraught when no one notices his or her achievements. If they draw you a picture, don’t forget to put it on the refrigerator!
This characteristic is more than balanced out by the Sagittarius child’s huge heart. They cannot walk by someone who seems sad or distressed. A Sagittarian always leaves a mark on people’s hearts and spirits.
Even at a young age your Sagittarius child looks on the sunny side of life. They are naturally hopeful and bright and spread that energy everywhere they go, much to a parents delight.
Optimism makes mom and dad’s job much easier with one exception – risk taking. They become so confident of the “positives” that they’ll run head long into trouble.
To the Archer, life is supposed to come out right. So your son or daughter may shrug off studying believing that they know the material already (as an example).
In the astrological scheme of things a Sagittarian child is a fire cracker. They never seem to run out of energy. It’s 10 pm and you’re trying to get them inside from the street basketball game or other similar activity.
Additionally your Archer adores exploration and adventure. Don’t be surprised if he or she jumps from one game to another, one hobby to the next etc.
This is very common for Archers who loses interest easily. That means you have to give them a lot of options so they don’t get fussy. No question at the end of the day you’re going to need some sleep just to keep up with them again tomorrow.
If you weren’t already tired, you’re raising a staunchly independent child. They want their space and freedom. This is not a child you can drag to Sunday-go-to-meeting-Church and expect them to sit still, let alone believe what they hear.
The Archer has to find his or her own path in life.
That means your best parenting comes from walking your talk. Let your Sagittarian child see ethics and values and absorb them. Badgering won’t work; trust will.
Your Archer will always tell you the truth (no matter how painful) and you can believe what they say.
Besides the drive for individuality, Sagittarian children thirst for ideas. They’ll always be exploring tough philosophical concepts that seem way beyond their years.
This thinking process comes naturally and it helps the archer “aim” the right direction in life.
Dust off that copy of Dante or Aristotle. You’ll need it.
One final thing, just as real Rams/Goats “blurt” when they “speak”, so, too, will your little Sagittarius. Remember that whole “aiming straight” thing?
Well a Sagittarius’ words shoot as straight and true as any arrow and will come flying out of their little mouths without forethought. Further, they’ll rarely be contrite about anything they said because, in their mind, it was the absolute truth!
The Sagittarius Girl
Sagittarian girls have their disarming charms, which they desperately need. From the moment she learns to talk your daughter will find her uncensored thoughts leaping out of her mouth. This startles many people including mom and dad who are left stammering and apologizing to Aunt Sadie for her brash behavior. Do not be too upset with your girl for this behavior. It’s very normal for Fire-based Sagittarians, and there are many times when fierce truth really has a place. Yes, it’s going to get her (and you) into sticky situations and she’d do well to learn a bit of diplomacy, but you can always trust what she says. No matter their age, Archers can’t condone lies.
In listening to your daughter and watching her actions always remember that a Sagittarius girl sees things just as they are and responds accordingly. On the up-side she has a great outlook, feeling that no matter how bad things are eventually life gets better. This will help her more than once throughout her young years, especially when touched by some of the world’s harsh realities.
Your daughter has strong family ties, but also a fierce desire for freedom. She will run off on a whim without telling you where to find her. That means asking her repeatedly to just take one second to keep you in the loop. Ordering an archer around does little good, but a well-formed request usually lands on open ears.
Emotionally your daughter isn’t prone to wearing her heart on her sleeve. She feels things very deeply but often contends with those feelings alone. Again this is part of the independent nature of the Archer. She will retreat and consider how things went so terribly wrong. So long as that personal “time out” doesn’t last too long you have little to worry about. She’ll confide in you in her own time.
Unlike the very tempered Taurus, Sagittarian girls love to spend money. As soon as she gets her allowance be ready for that shopping trip complete with a wish list. This is especially true during her teen years. About the only thing that may bring about savings is the chance for travel. This gal has wanderlust written all over her personality. If there is the chance to get her out seeing the world, it really feeds the Archer’s soul.
The Sagittarius Boy
Hang on tight folks, your Sagittarian boy is a born adventurer. He will take any and every opportunity to turn the most routine of outings into an exploration. Don’t be surprised if his imaginative playtimes include becoming a pirate on the high seas or a man on the moon. Your son will always have big dreams, but he also has the energy to bring some of those dreams into reality later in life.
Your little boy is sweet and pleasant, and you’ll be tempted to keep him close to the nest. That’s the worst thing you can do to the Sagittarian spirit. He needs his independence and you need to cut apron strings as soon as practicable. Don’t worry, he loves you completely, but there’s a whole world out there and he wants to see every corner of it. Holding back that nature leads to a very sullen Archer. When given age-appropriate freedoms, however, the funny and giving child you adore returns.
As your son grows you’ll notice a propensity to think very deeply about life. He ponders questions like “what is beauty” and often reaches out to people from various walks in life attempting to find an answer. This is actually a very endearing quality as your Sagittarian son doesn’t have a prejudicial bone in his body. Such intense questioning may lead him to exploring various religions or philosophies as a young adult.
When people see your Sagittarian son they’re captivated by his demeanor. He always carries himself with an air of authority and he truly can be an excellent leader with his keen sense of justice and bright mind. This impression lasts typically until he blurts out something with unbridled honesty. Like all Archers he has a very sharp tongue and it cuts deeply at the worst possible moments. Parents do well to teach their Sagittarians from a young age to pause, think, count to three THEN talk. Once in a while that actually works, and if your boy sees positive results he has the ability to become more tactful without losing that brilliant truthfulness on which a parent can rely.
One thing with which your son will always struggle is scheduling, planning or the expectations/demand of others on his time.
First, he has no sense of time.
Second, being forced to adhere to deadlines affects his psyche the same as if he were shackled and put into prison. These put a chink in his independence. The Sagittarius boy is not a planner, he’s a DOER. Being more flexible than you might perhaps be personally comfortable with regarding how you set up your son’s day can save lots of arguments. A helpful solution might be getting him involved in the planning since he’s likely to change everything on a dime anyway!
