primal zodiac sign
Capricorn + Dragon
Powerful, majestic, and devoted, those born under the Primal Zodiac sign of the Eagle are born to dedicate themselves to a cause with an intensity rarely seen by any of their peers. Their intensity springs from their personal passion and idealism, and those who are honest with their deepest desires will find themselves inexplicably drawn toward them.
Being born in the Year of the Dragon, members of this sign are tremendous leaders who naturally draw others in with their energy. Add to that the never-say-die work ethic of Capricorn and one can only imagine the possibilities. Eagles are unstoppable when they are focused on a goal and those with similar ideals will surely stop to take notice. In this way Eagles are natural forerunners in any political or business venture, though they must be careful not to get carried away by their own inflated egos.
Eagles can be absolutely dictatorial when it comes to the most important aspects of their work. They don’t trust anyone else to get the job done which only creates more work for themselves. Though they enjoy chasing their dreams, they must be cautious of burnout. Not just wearing themselves down but also those who (often voluntarily) follow their lead. Members of this sign don’t just want to be the best - they expect to be.
For better or worse, Eagles feel entitled to success. Not hopeful, not optimistic - entitled. While this sense of “divine right to greatness” helps keep them moving ever forward, it can also grow out of control very easily. Eagles inherently feel that they were born to do something and become very frustrated when they don’t get the help they desire. They expect to be rewarded and beloved for their brilliance and can become increasingly dictatorial to those who are intimidated by them. While this strategy may work in the short term, there is no better way to alienate one’s followers than this.
Though they are very strong in many ways, Eagles do have a weakness. Power, status, money, authority, and control are all temptations within the generous reach of this sign. However, true happiness for Eagles only comes through facing down opponents and overcoming obstacles. Taking the easy or unethical road will lead to a faster accumulation of wealth, but not increased happiness. As much as they want to win, they know inherently that their victory only truly matters if it can co-exist with their highest ideals.
Again, aspects in the birth chart is going to play a big role in compatibility with others, but the sign of Eagle is so strong that there are going to be certain traits that stay the same regardless. The first thing to know about Eagles is that they are extremely loyal. Loyalty is a big part of their internal code of laws and nothing will raise their ire faster than disloyalty. At the same time, Eagles often expect too much loyalty from their friends and family. For example, if a member of this sign get into an argument they will expect all friends and families to side with them, regardless of whether they are right or wrong.
After a few disappointments in the trust department, Eagles begin to be more cautious entering into new relationships. They may be gregarious and outgoing, but they will reserve the vulnerable parts of themselves until they are at least fairly certain that they can trust someone else. This can make starting romantic relationships more difficult, but in the end a little caution is good for this sign.
Since Eagles attract others so easily, they will have little trouble finding mates, especially those who are equally idealistic. Young Eagles aren’t likely to get too serious in relationships, in part because they are already quite serious about their own ideals and ideas. Members of this sign don’t typically marry at a young age and often meet their long-term partners later in life, after they have achieved some of their goals and can settle down a bit.
Careers & Goals
There are few specific careers worth mentioning for the talented and persevering Eagle, simply because there are so many different things that they can do. The key is personal passion. Those born under the sign of the Eagle often find that they have certain ideals in life that they are drawn to. This can be anything from the desire to start a company to the desire to end world hunger. If a true passion exists it will be very strong in this sign and those who fail to follow their own hearts will suffer mentally and emotionally.
Eagles are meant to be leaders. They have the ambition and drive necessary to accomplish nearly any task and others naturally want to follow their energy. The more energy they put toward a passion, the more followers they will have. Recruitment of like-minded individuals is not necessary. Eagles lead and grow their armies by following up their words with appropriate actions.
Of course, not all Eagles will want to lead. Because there are so many minor influences in every individual’s birth chart, certain planetary aspects (especially the life path) may lead an individual to favor other careers which use their power in an equal but different way. One of the best careers for those with a mind for science and numbers is that of an astrophysicist. I know that is an extremely specific career choice, but few signs are better suited as physicists, astronomers, and astronauts.
