primal zodiac sign
Pisces + Dragon
An intriguing combination of the sensitive and docile Pisces and the proud, powerful Dragon, one would expect those born under the sign of the Firefly to be more of a contradiction. In most cases, however, these two very different sets of personality traits work quite well together.
Firefly is the sign of the idealist. Creative, intuitive, and mysterious, Fireflies are passionate about what they believe in. They try hard to be optimists who want to see the world as a happy place where good things are supposed to happen to good people. They are warm and loyal friends, and will do anything to help a friend or family member in need. At the same time, they expect this loyalty to be returned and have little problem demanding it. Above all things, Fireflies want to be loved and admired.
Members of this sign may be prone to depression when inactive. With such strong ideals and a powerful sense of right and wrong, they are not well-suited to accepting things as they are. While such acceptance is often tied to the concept of realism, it just doesn’t seem to work well for their personalities. Fireflies in particular need to be forward thinking, forward moving. They need a heartfelt purpose in life and need to see progress toward it. Even if they can’t change the world, they can, and should, do their part to make it better.
Fireflies are sensitive. They spend a lot of time living in their own minds. In truth they prefer their perfect little fantasy worlds over reality, where they tend to feel a bit cheated by life. In their perfect world everyone is like them and their animal namesake - a small but potent light in the vast darkness.
Fireflies believe in treating others how they want to be treated, but Fireflies also believe that they deserve to be treated very well by everyone. They are not so naive to think that this is going to happen, but they do hold an ideal in mind that others will be as kind and friendly and welcoming as they are. They may not be the most social creatures, but Fireflies are always polite and well-mannered. They want everyone to feel comfortable and are not ones to bring up controversial subjects. They are loyal friends who want the best for everyone, though they can be quietly judgmental to those who behave in ways they disagree with.
Unfortunately Fireflies are not lucky in love. They tend to pick the wrong types of partners - ones who tend to stoke the fires of their emotions rather than those who are actually a good match for them. Though they may not like it, they do best around more grounded signs who can keep them in check with reality. At the same time, others cannot ever try to dissuade Fireflies from their dreams or ideals. They need someone to share their ideas and visions with, and in a perfect scenario this would be someone who was also realistic yet optimistic enough to help them (or at least encourage them to) achieve their goals.
Careers & Goals
This is a highly creative sign that does well in all things artistic. As actors, writers, producers, directors, musicians, photographers, and the like they can succeed where others fail due to their imaginative vision and passion for their work. Passion is key for a Firefly’s career, as they will most certainly be miserable and under-productive in a job they dislike. They don’t particularly like being told what to do, especially since other people don’t seem to see or understand their vision correctly. Though they work well with others, members of this sign would rather venture off on their own rather than compromise their artistic integrity.
Fireflies can be a bit judgmental, but that’s also because they have strong intuitions that they learn to trust at an early age. Their opinionated nature can help in certain careers that require a trained eye and a sense of what’s good and what’s bad. They make excellent critics and designers - always having a strong idea of what needs changing to make things right.
Whatever career they choose, Fireflies should follow their heart (as well as their gut instinct). Finding a purpose or a cause to live for is a big part of their growth, and to deny a strong attraction toward their goals is to shut off the very light that radiates from within them.
