primal zodiac sign
Cancer + Sheep
Those born under the Primal Zodiac sign of the Duck are kind, caring, and generous, but also hide a deeper emotional side that they don’t bring out often. Members of this sign are more concerned with making others feel comfortable than being comfortable themselves. They are concerned about their appearance and how others view them, but they try not to show it. Ducks are great with children and animals and tend to believe that whatever they give to the world they will get back.
There is a darker side to the Duck, though. If you were able to look deep inside them (which they would never let you do) you would find that beneath their kind and tempered exterior is a fragile, emotional artist. Because they don’t like to share their feelings all that much, you might never know this about a Duck, even one that is close to you. All members of this sign have an artistic talent and a need to express themselves. Surprisingly though, you won’t find a lot of Ducks as professional artists - they like to keep this secret for themselves and often only express their artistic side when they are alone.
Ducks are reasonably social, but they prefer the company of people they know to those they don’t. They can be a bit shy in social situations, but simultaneously prefer the anonymity of a group setting. Ducks make incredible friends and are always willing to help those close to them. Even if they can’t stand their family, they are always family-first and will stop whatever they are doing to help a family member of a friend in need. This isn’t always healthy. Ducks need to find a balance between fulfilling their needs and the needs of others. Luckily Ducks can be downright stubborn when they don’t want to do something, but are always tactful about letting others down.
In love, Ducks will have no problem. Because of their shyness they may not date a lot in their early adult years but will eventually come out of their shells enough for others to get to know and love them. Members of this sign make great husbands, wives, mothers, and fathers but also great grandparents or aunts or uncles. They open themselves to anyone they consider family and truly are at their best when they are giving themselves to those they love. The only difficulties a Duck might find is with a partner that is overly assertive. Ducks don’t fight back. If anything they just go silent and let bad situations fester. Those born under this sign will need to stay open and communicative with their loved ones to keep small issues from turning into big ones.
Careers & Goals
Ducks feel best when they are connected with others. Though they tend to be somewhat shy around new people, they enjoy being part of a “flock”. This sign has a natural tendency to take care of their friends and family, but don’t want to be thought of as attention-seeking, so they do best in careers where they can express this love indirectly. Jobs such as gardener, farmer, rancher, chef, or innkeeper all fit the needs of this sign. The dream job for a Duck is to own their own country inn and farm where they grow all of the crops they serve to their guests each night. For this same reason they also make fantastic homemakers.
There is also a restless side to Ducks, most commonly seen in their young adult years, that might make staying at home seem a bit too dry. Like their animal namesakes, Ducks like to move around from time to time, though they never stay away from family for too long. They are curious by nature and there’s nothing wrong with feeding this need, especially when they are young. Some careers work well for them, such as that of an archaeologist, art historian, astrologer, or oceanographer. In these careers Ducks can uncover a deeper understanding of the meaning behind seemingly simple things that others take for granted. Though these career choices may not last for many, those that do stick with them will find great success in their field of choice.
