Dear Kirstie, re tempraments, not sure what R. Steiners view on Astrology was, but do you find that you can categories temperaments into the zodiac signs? Also I understand you shouldn't categories a child under 7, however although largely Air, toddlers deffinately have their own mind and need to be parented differently. I'm battling to tell which temperament they fall into so I can correctly parent them, any tips?
I have tried to correlate the temperaments to the zodiac signs. However, it does not correlate exactly and there are too many factors involved to do a "straight correlation". The only way you could correlate would be to also find out the person's sun sign and what their "rising" signs were as well.
As for children under the age of 7, from my past 20 years of observation, research and discussion with experts I have concluded that is IS possible to type a child - even from when they are in the womb. Early childhood is dominated by the air temperament. However, this does not usually overpower or hide the temperament the child inherently has. It may be a bit more difficult to conclude what temperament the child is, but it can be done when the right observations are made, and the right questions are asked.
Another thing to keep in mind is that if a child under the age of 7 is clearly of one temperament and then "changes" when they reach the age of 7, it would still have been useful to type them before age 7 because they needed that method of parenting before 7 and perhaps another method after the age of 7.
