Energetic. Extroverted. Enthusiastic. If you have a bundle of energy running around your house, they might just be a little Sagittarius.

Now, full disclosure here, I am a Sagittarius. Growing up I always found astrology to be fun and interesting to read about, so I know a fair amount about this specific sign. Of course, I didn’t take it very seriously, but that being said… I’m pretty darn close to being your typical Sagittarius.

Sagittarians are known as the travelers of the zodiac, and I laughed a little bit when I read that because our family went on FOUR vacations this past year. We were making up for lost time due to the pandemic and don’t typically take that many vacations in a year but trust me – I’d LOVE to!

So, what else can you expect if you’re raising a little Archer or expecting one to arrive very soon? Well, let’s see what the experts have to say!

First, we’ll start with the basics of the Sagittarius sign.

Birthdate – November 22 – December 21

Element – Fire Sign

Symbol – The Archer

When it comes to personality, Sagittarians are full of fire! They don’t care what others think, they’re passionate, and they’ll always tell it like it is. Below is a list of typical positive and negative traits of Sagittarius. Your wee one probably doesn’t have ALL of these traits, but some might sound familiar. (You can find the whole list here)

Positive Traits

Sociable – Greeting everyone. Chatting loudly. Making a speech. Singing karaoke. That’s a Sagittarius in a social situation. They are very social beings, and you’ll usually leave a conversation with them feeling happy.

Friendly – Sagittarians are very friendly and love meeting new people. They love to talk, they’re full of charm, and they form new friendships quite easily.

Adventurous – As mentioned earlier, Sagittarians love to travel and they’re always looking for adventure in everyday life. Traveling and exploring makes them happy, so keep that in mind. Even day trips are enough to keep your little adventurer smiling.

Funny – Be prepared to laugh. A lot. Those born under this sign have a great sense of humour, they’re full of wit, and they’re usually a riot at social gatherings.

Optimistic – The glass is ALWAYS half-full. All the time. This one is especially true for me. I’m always looking at the bright side of every situation. My husband jokes all the time that I’m optimistic about literally everything. He’s not wrong.

Negative Traits

Blunt – Guilty. I mean, I’ll try to word it nicely of course, but if you ask, I’m going to tell you the truth whether it’s what you want to hear or not. So, you can expect some brutal honesty from your Sagittarius. Other fire signs Aries and Leo are also known for their bluntness.

Stubborn – Yep, this sign has a stubborn streak. It’s important to try and help them keep a level head so their stubborn side doesn’t end up sabotaging friendships and relationships.

Impatient – Your little Archer wants what they want, and they want it NOW! Patience is something Sagittarians don’t have a lot of, so you’ll need to use YOUR patience and teach them how to wait so their impatience doesn’t get in the way of things later in life.

Now that we know a little bit more about Sagittarians, let’s dive into their stereotypical likes and dislikes. Again, these may not all be true, but it can’t hurt to keep them in the back of your mind.


Travel – They want to see and experience all the things! So, let them explore! Take them to new places, ever if it’s just nearby! Plan little adventures!

Being Outdoors – This is a good thing! In a world full of technology, having a little one who loves being outdoors is quite literally a breath of fresh air. So, encourage outdoor play! Go for walks! Check out local parks!

Freedom – With that adventurous spirit we keep talking about, Sagittarians just want to live life to the fullest without anything holding them back. They become restless when they aren’t moving, so having freedom is very important to them.


Clingy People – If we’re being honest here, I don’t think anyone really likes a clingy person, do they? Maybe that’s just the Sagittarius in me talking…

Being Constrained – They don’t like being restricted. At all.

So, in a nutshell, Sagittarians are fun people to be around and they like their freedom. If you’re reading this thinking it doesn’t sound like your child at all, they might be on the cusp of another zodiac sign and have more of those traits.

For instance, if their birthday is November 22nd or 23rd, they may have more Scorpio traits. If their birthday is December 20th or 21st, they may have more Capricorn traits. (We’ll learn all about Capricorns next month!)
