Aries + Rooster



One thing that will never be said about a Goldfinch is that they lack self-confidence. Members of this Primal Zodiac sign are overflowing with confidence, a trait that helps them succeed far beyond anyone else’s expectations. There is a mysterious power in these people that stems from their firm self-belief. It’s even said in ancient mythology that the evil and powerful half-bird/half-woman creatures, the Harpies, feared the Goldfinch for what they might be able to do.

Goldfinches are great at making friends and love being part of social situations. They are highly active and energetic, which sometimes plays at odds with their tendency to want things organized and clean. Members of this sign expect things to go their way, and because of this, they often do. When they don’t get their way, their dark side comes out and they become selfish, arrogant, bossy, and aggressive. Goldfinches don’t worry much about other people’s feelings, so getting them back on course is difficult. Luckily, the Goldfinch likes to feel good, so they won’t stay in a funk for long.


Goldfinches are active, outgoing, and love to throw parties and entertain guests. They are highly social by nature and are thus quite popular and well-liked by most people. While their social energy draws many people to them, Goldfinches can be a little too arrogant and boastful at times, which can push some people away. They also have a tendency to say whatever is on their minds, for better or worse. For the most part those who know them well accept this part of the Goldfinch’s personality, and thus members of this sign have no trouble keeping friends around.

Love is a different story. Goldfinches don’t exactly make the best partners because they are much more interested in themselves than anyone else. This works fine with more superficial acquaintances, but a close relationship of shared equality is a huge challenge for a Goldfinch to wrap their mind around. It is simply not how they are used to thinking or behaving and it can take many failed relationships and a lot of growing up before your average Goldfinch learns to consider someone else their equal.

Careers & Goals

There are several different career choices that a Goldfinch can make. They have all the confidence in the world and this helps them succeed at most tasks they take on. What the Goldfinch needs to focus on most is the balance between what they want to do and what they are best at. This sign doesn’t love spending their time in the classroom, so their options change depending on how much higher education they are willing to take on.

There are four specific careers that fit the Goldfinch exceptionally well: Dentist, Police Detective, Hairdresser, and Salesman. This sign succeeds in sales because sales is mostly about confidence and energy. This is a no-brainer for many Goldfinches as they can make a lot of money without a lot of time spent on education.

For those who want to take on a trade, a career as a hairdresser is a fantastic fit because the most successful hairdressers are also the best at the short-term social interactions. It changes depending on the area, but a Police Detective career typically requires at least a bachelor’s degree. This career fits the Goldfinches sense of adventure as well as their organization and analytical skills.

Members of this sign who want to go all the way with their education should consider dentistry. Why? To be honest, I’m not entirely sure, but the stars say that dentistry is a perfect match, so I have to agree.
