Sagittarius Parenting Compatibility: Playful and Wise
See what kind of parents you and your partner will be based on your zodiac signs
Having kids will bring out the kid in you! If you’re a parent with your Sun in Sagittarius, you are playful and always excited to spend time with your children. You drag them from one adventure to the next and enjoy passing on all of your wisdom to them. Keep in mind while you’re having fun and being reckless with your little ones that you’re the parent in the situation -- and you’ll have to be responsible and tough from time to time. The lessons you do teach will be on a moral high-ground!
JUMP TO A SIGN:
Sagittarius and Aries
Sagittarius-Aries parents make a high-energy couple with a lot to offer any child. Both of you are blessed with boundless energy, but you express it in different ways. Aries is a very physical person. This is the parent who can stay up nights cleaning up the house with one hand and rocking a colicky baby to sleep with the other. Sagittarius’ mental drive is capable of laying out plans for the baby’s education that could quite conceivably begin at the first sonogram. The child of you lively parents will never suffer from boredom. Aries will be much stricter when it comes to discipline, but Sagittarius will devise incredibly creative ways for the child to discern the difference between right and wrong. If your child were to get in trouble with the principal, the school had better watch out -- you two will fight to the (legal) death to protect your precious progeny.
Sagittarius and Taurus
Having parents like you will give your children a wide range of attitudes to learn and grow with. Taurus’ stable attitude will anchor the family, while Sagittarius’ insatiable curiosity will broaden everybody’s horizons. Your house will probably be filled with laughter, too, because both Taurus and Sagittarius can always find the funny side of most situations. When the children need discipline, Sagittarius will be able to think of ways that justice can be done, while Taurus will follow through with the plan. Taurus should watch that Sagittarius doesn’t cave when the child wants to find a way around established rules and household policies. Meanwhile, Sagittarius will have to encourage Taurus to allow the family to take fun vacation trips and find other ways to broaden their horizons. You two can definitely find a balance between work and play, and raise children whose values include ambition and fairness.
Sagittarius and Gemini
Your two signs may be on the opposite side of the zodiac, but as parents, you behave a lot alike. Both of you will take great delight in teaching your children new things, and filling their brains with every last bit of information. Gemini will excel at working with verbal skills, while Sagittarius will teach the children about exploring the world in the physical sense. Gemini can take over the family fun on rainy days with word games and crafts to develop small motor skills, while Sagittarius takes the family camping or gets everyone to join a soccer league. When it comes to discipline, it’s difficult for either of you to avoid acting like little kids. Of the two, Sagittarius is more likely to deliver the messages and set the boundaries. Gemini will be able to deliver the messages once the punishment has been decided. Together, you can do a good job teaching your children right from wrong.
Sagittarius and Cancer
Your children are likely to lead exciting lives while feeling cared for and nurtured at the same time. Cancer will never give up on creating a safe and protective environment for offspring, and will tend toward over-protectiveness. Fortunately, Sagittarius will be charming and convincing enough so that Cancer will allow the children to experience new adventures in life. While Cancer will focus on learning traditions and subjects like English and history, Sagittarius will encourage children to be independent explorers, and to travel as much as they can -- if only for the purpose of learning something new. Discipline will come fairly easy to you two. Sagittarius will be able to identify when the children need extra restrictions and guidance, and Cancer will agree to administer punishments fairly when they’re needed. You two can easily resolve your differences in disposition through talking -- Cancer calms Sagittarius, and Sagittarius cheers Cancer out of those famously funky moods.
Sagittarius and Leo
You two make an outgoing pair that will provide children with a household filled with action, laughter, and pride. Sagittarius and Leo can be like best friends most of the time, and you’ll approach parenthood as a joint project that can bring out the best of both your talents. Sagittarius will be the playful parent. With the instant ability to get back to a childlike frame of mind, kids will joyfully share their toys and games in a way that combines play and learning. Leo will be the more stern of the two, always reminding the children that they must do their best ... and reprimanding them when they could have done better. Leo is also capable of joining in on the fun, though. Games like charades and any opportunity to teach the children how to perform or use their creativity will be Leo’s specialty. Your whole family will probably enjoy forming a team to play sports or compete at running or bike riding.
Sagittarius and Virgo
Although your two signs seem as different as night and day, they are actually two sides of the same coin. Adaptability is the most admirable trait you two share in common, but there are in fact many levels where you can get along and work together to raise a happy, successful family. You can easily divide the work of parenting between the two of you. Virgo will take care of the practical things, such as food and clothing, while Sagittarius will tend to the children’s intellectual and cultural lives. You two should check in with one another from time to time, though, because both of you tend to go to extremes. It might sound nice to have a vegan, germ-free child who speaks four languages and spends summers learning music in Senegal, but is it practical? Good conversations about your child’s individual preferences and natural talents will help keep things in balance.
Sagittarius and Libra
You two make a very likeable couple, and you’ll totally enjoy the experience of being parents. You will recognize the meaning of "pride and joy" from the moment you meet your first baby. Libra will be proud that such a beautiful creature has graced the earth, and Sagittarius will be overjoyed to have someone to play with! The daily routine will need some work if you two ever hope to get it established. Libra has a tendency to put off getting down to work, and Sagittarius often becomes distracted and scattered. Neatness could become an issue rather early on, as the pileup of laundry and equipment becomes an avalanche. You two will have to take things one day at a time if you hope to keep things peaceful and manageable. When it comes to discipline, both of you will easily identify the right thing to do; but neither will want to risk enforcing the punishment.
Sagittarius and Scorpio
As a Sagittarius and Scorpio you will have to do some work to blend your widely different parenting styles. Scorpio will try to control the child and his or her environment, while Sagittarius will want the child to experiment with virtually every available adventure. Both of you will be equally insistent about doing things your own way, too. your children can react in many different ways -- and will probably use this basic difference in opinion to work one parent against the other to get the things they want. You can avoid this by keeping your discussions between the two of you. It might not be possible to make it so your children can’t guess what’s going on, but you can at least minimize trouble by trying your best to work out compromises and maintain a united front. This will be especially important when discipline comes into play. You must enforce rules at all costs.
Sagittarius and Sagittarius
While your sign has a very serious side, having children will bring out the little kid in both of you! Your lighthearted manner will make almost everything your family does together playful and fun. You two will have to watch you don’t go to extremes, though. When you find yourselves getting agitated over a game of "hot potato" at your child’s birthday party, it could be time to step back and let the kids have their moment. Both parents will put a premium on education and travel, too. You’ll find ways to see the world that teach your children a lot about it, and there will usually be a set of suitcases packed and ready to go. When it comes to discipline, you two will work out a way to determine what’s fair, and you’ll insist that your children pay for their transgressions so they get the moral and ethical backbone they need.
Sagittarius and Capricorn
Sagittarius-Capricorn parents provide a good balance between optimism and pragmatism. As individuals, you two can be extreme examples of these qualities; but when you work as a team, your different attitudes can blend into a powerful set of messages for your children. Sagittarius will emphasize the idea of having faith in oneself, while Capricorn will hammer home the need to work hard. Both of you will watch over your children and maintain an active role in their lives. Sagittarius will be more willing to play with them, while Capricorn will act as the all-knowing authority figure, who doles out affection according to merit. Capricorn will be better at discipline than Sagittarius might; but both of you will want your children to learn how to behave in ways that help them grow into respectable citizens. Sagittarius will explain the lessons learned, while Capricorn will be consistent about enforcing the rules.
Sagittarius and Aquarius
As individuals you are both visionary in your own ways, and as parents you will push your children to make their marks on the world. This will ultimately be good for your children, but Sagittarius and Aquarius parents might want to consider (at least for the first few years) allowing children to take baby steps. Sagittarius will have an easier time with this, getting down on the floor to play with the children’s toys and teaching them about active sports. Aquarius can enjoy being involved in the children’s early lives by telling and reading stories, especially the kinds that tell tall tales of heroes and heroines that strive to make the world a better place. You two will struggle to find practical ways of establishing discipline with your children however. Your joint idealism could prevent them you finding punishments that suit the "crime", so you should consult an experienced, practical relative or friend for advice.
Sagittarius and Pisces
As a parenting team you will work to make sure your children have all the things they need to grow as people, both intellectually and spiritually; but you have to work on the material side of things, too. Raising children is enormously expensive, so one or both of this you will have to focus on earning money more than you might tend to by instinct. Once that is taken care of, you two will provide a high level of guidance and love to your children, from the very start. Both parents will enjoy sharing the wonders of childhood. Sagittarius will be delighted by active play and organized sports, while Pisces will get in the middle of any activity that calls for creativity and imagination. In terms of discipline, both of you have opinions about what’s right and wrong, but neither has an easy time enforcing the rules. You’ll need to work hard on that.
