primal zodiac sign
Cancer + Monkey
This is one of the most contradictory signs in the Primal Zodiac. Those born under the sign of Emperor Tamarin represent themselves as fun, carefree, smart, and caring, and while they do indeed share these traits they also mask a dark side full of arrogance, self-doubt, and judgment for others. They truly do not have bad intentions, but members of this sign tend to be emotionally immature, and prefer to live in a fantasy world rather than share their true thoughts and feelings.
Emperor Tamarins are very smart and intuitive. They are truly capable of doing anything, and each one has its own unique set of skills that, when focused, can take them far. Too often though this sign has a tendency toward depression and negative thinking and entertains himself or herself by ridiculing the stupidity of the general population. They don’t consider this rude, though, because they truly are more intelligent than most people. They are also very creative and surprisingly artistic. Despite all this they are truly insecure and have fragile egos. Emperor Tamarins may have a light-hearted exterior but inside they are afraid of being rejected by those they care about, so they prefer not to care about anyone or anything too strongly.
They are skilled manipulators when they want to be, and can revert to temper tantrums if they don’t get their way. They truly are moody individuals which can be both good and bad, depending on the mood. They have a great deal of affection for family and close friends, but hate to apologize when they offend others which can make them appear callous and arrogant. Emperor Tamarins absolutely hate being wrong, and often lose their cool at seemingly innocuous times.
This is a sign that people tend to either love or hate. Emperor Tamarins are very funny though most of their humor involves teasing and making fun of others. They also tend to come across as arrogant and egotistical as they like to trash talk people they don’t like, which is most people. Those who love them do so because they are fun and because they really do care about those close to them. They are surprisingly loyal to family and close friends, but can be borderline rude to people outside of their immediate circle. Close friends accept them for who they are but may not take them all that seriously.
Love is tricky for this sign. Their natural charm and seemingly carefree nature make attracting mates easy. They are also smooth talkers when they want to be and when focused on someone they want they will pursue them with skill. The tricky part is that deep down Emperor Tamarins simultaneously want true love but don’t want to make themselves vulnerable to getting hurt. They don’t take rejection well and nothing scares them more than showing someone else their true self and being discarded. They can take being rejected for the false self they show, but not for their true self. Members of this sign have the life challenge of gaining more real confidence and letting others get to know their real selves. Those who are brave enough to do this will find their lives transformed and will be destined for true love and happiness.
Careers & Goals
While most signs have specific career fits, the Emperor Tamarin is most likely to bounce around between careers throughout his or her lifetime. This sign’s restless nature combined with their innate intelligence makes it difficult for them to commit to just one career. The truth is, Emperor Tamarins are a bit self-centered and don’t like being told what to do by anyone else. When they are focused they can accomplish quite a bit and are smart enough to learn new things fairly quickly. Because of this they don’t feel that they need to commit to anything that doesn’t feel like the perfect fit.
Luckily for them, the Emperor Tamarin is skilled at acquiring money, especially when it comes to convincing others. They aren’t necessarily “natural salespeople”, but more like good liars. This may not be a great career path as more than likely they will view the majority of potential clients as either morons who fell for their sales pitch or morons who are too stupid to fall for their sales pitch. Each member of this sign needs to find their own path. This sign is surprisingly intuitive and if they can learn to quiet their thoughts enough to just follow their hearts they will do well.
