primal zodiac sign
Aquarius + Rooster
Much like their animal namesake, members of the Bird-of-Paradise Primal Zodiac sign are colorful, adventurous, and naturally draw attention from those around them. They want to make the most out of life, so they make big goals and big plans and truly believe in their ability to achieve them. In truth, they have more ability to achieve big goals than many other Primal Zodiac signs, as long as they can stay humble enough to see their lives for what they really are, not what they want them to be.
With such big dreams, a Bird-of-Paradise can easily get lost on the wrong path. They will chase a dream to the ends of the Earth, but if they’ve lost perspective, it may be the opposite end of the Earth they intended to be on. They succeed mostly because of their confidence and likability. Their big personalities and ability to get things done draw people in and make them believe in whatever the Bird-of-Paradise wants them to. They are not manipulators, though. They believe that honesty is the best policy, even if that honesty is offensive to others.
Birds-of-Paradise are highly polarizing. People either love them or hate them. They have very big personalities, are social, confident, and generally very friendly. Many people find this combination very attractive, for both love and friendship. In their careers they can make things happen, which also attracts those who want to network with them for success.
More reserved or shy Primal Zodiac signs, however, often find a Bird-of-Paradise to be overwhelming and abrasive. These signs interpret the Bird-of-Paradise’s confidence as cockiness, friendliness as nosiness, and blunt honesty as rudeness. In all fairness, members of this sign can be a bit too straightforward at times. They don’t intend to hurt anyone’s feelings, but they often do as they pride themselves on “keeping it real”, a phrase they use far more often than most other people.
Especially in matters of love, members of this sign need balance, but good luck trying to make that happen. Birds-of-Paradise are all about flying as high as possible, living an exciting life, and making every day count. This works well for them in their careers, but not so well in their love lives. They tend to date multiple people, and don’t relish the thought of settling down. If they stick with anyone, it is likely to be a highly attractive mate because of the attention and validation they feel it gives them. One of their biggest challenges in life will be to find a genuine, solid relationship that makes them want to scale down their big dreams to make room for a family.
Careers & Goals
With their love of attention and penchant for big dreams, many members of this sign dream of successful careers in the spotlight. A career as a musician, actor, dancer, or other performer suits a naturally talented Bird-of-Paradise well. The problem comes when members of this sign overestimate their own talent, and will endlessly chase a big dream without the talent to fulfill it. Honest introspection will be necessary for the personal development of this sign.
The good news is that Birds-of-Paradise are hard-working, imaginative, and focused. If they can find a field that they are talented in, there is little that can stop them from succeeding at a high level. They can be bossy and honest to a fault, which can rub a lot of people the wrong way, but it also works for them once they find their groove. They make good salesmen, news anchors, investigative journalists, and service professionals.
Many Birds-of-Paradise do best in a trade, such as hairdressing, plumbing, or home repair. In these roles they can have a great diversity of clients and still get to do things the way they envision doing them. If they can develop the humility to serve in a role like this, they can make a good living and even feel inspired by their role in helping others.
