I love a free-spirited Sagittarius mom! Maybe it’s because my mom is a Sagittarius so I know much about being raised by an intuitive, impulsive, instinctive and incredibly independent woman. Born with a daredevil spirit, a woman who never wants to miss out and is often the life of the party; a jump-first-think-later kind of gal. Spontaneity makes them F-U-N moms, but the lack of structure can make it hard for their kids to feel grounded. There’s also a challenge with boundaries with many Sagittarius moms, where they get overly involved with their kids, often taking on the role of friend more than parent, blurring the lines of authority. But their kids will have memorable childhoods, learning what it means to live in the moment and they’ll look back on their unforgettable memories with fondness (even when mom was so free-spirited it was also oh-so-embarassing!)
Sagittarius moms are generally liberal, tolerant and accepting, wanting their kids to discover their own limits and to branch out and find what gets them excited about life, and how to find their bliss; it’s one of the ways these mamas continue to live through their kids. The wanderer needs to settle a bit when baby comes along (in some way or another!) and helping their children follow their hearts and dreams is one way they too feel able to continue on a life of learning, experiencing, traveling and growing.
Maintaining your sense of self and independence is key as a Sagittarius mom, so having a career, hobby or passion separate from parenting is an important part of keeping yourself balanced once motherhood is part of your life. Sagittarians are ruled by Jupiter, the planet of abundance and joy and so much of their lives are filled with fun and exuberance and they often enter into motherhood with much the same notion: that it will be a larger than life experience that will bring excitement, happiness and adventure! Indeed.
