The Sagittarius Child

When I observe the Sagittarian child they uphold a vitality in their life that assists them in all their endeavours. The explorer and adventurer - whether it’s in the backyard making fun of new found treasures in the earlier years or the aspiring traveller in the later years - they really are the seekers in life.

They are the seekers of truth, insight, and their own fully realised life purpose. When expressing and operating with a positive relationship to life, seeing potential, setting goals and achieving purpose and meaning in daily life are achievable. The attributes they carry enable them to break free of restrictive situations that may be limiting their growth and personal development.

To support all young adventurers, explorers and seekers of knowledge, No 25 Kowhai, No 26 Karo and No 27 Karaka create the triangle of power that can assist them on the journeys they undertake.

However it is often the negative traits that grab our attention. If your child is experiencing pain with changes in life circumstances (e.g. changing schools, moving house), the Sagittarius essences may be what they need. No 25 Kowhai will assist them to move on and break free from their bonds to the past. It will also assist to transform unhealthy risk taking, which we are observing in many of our youth, to a healthy sense of adventure.

If the child’s pain is in the area of finding and following their own star or their life purpose then No 26 Karo is your ally to help transform un-channeled talents into ambition and potential. No 27 Karaka will remind the discouraged pessimistic child to see the opportunity each new day brings with the rising of the sun.

Providing a child with their good medicine is one of life’s greatest gifts. If you have a Sagittarian child in your life you can choose to include these three essences. Equally so, if your child is presenting with issues in the areas of life mentioned, you can include 1, 2 or 3 of the suggested essences.
