Hammerhead Shark


It is said that if a shark stops moving they will drown. This is a brilliant metaphor for the Hammerhead Shark Primal Zodiac sign. Hammerheads are headstrong, independent, and adventurous. They have seemingly endless amounts of energy and when they see something they want, they go after it full-force. Members of this sign can’t stand restrictions. Their independence is the most important thing. They have a hard time settling down in careers and relationships unless they have the freedom to do what they want when they want to do it.

From the outside Hammerheads seem very confident, but this is not actually the case. They wear a mask most of the time - showing people the face they want them to see, not who they really are. They don’t like to stop and think about things, they would much rather just push forward and see what happens. They tend to be a bit self-involved, and at their worst can be overly aggressive and blunt to the point of rudeness. Hammerheads like being around people and tend to do best in large groups.


Not surprisingly, Hammerhead Sharks make better friends than they do lovers or co-workers. People enjoy being around their energy, and Hammerheads can be funny and charming when they are feeling good. You can often find them at a bar talking loudly and entertaining a crowd of people whom they may know or not. They are the fun and adventurous friend of the group, but are much harder to pin down one-on-one. The truth is, they are good at telling people what they want to hear, but are not actually all that socially adept. Their weaknesses tend to show far more one-on-one, so they try to stick to big group social gatherings when possible.

Love can be tricky. Hammerheads are quick to lose their temper when things don’t go their way, so the prospect of sharing their life with someone else is a difficult one for them to grasp. They also love being independent and on the go, which is why they need a partner who can give them space but still be there when the Hammerhead needs them. At the same time, they often fall in love quickly and keep relationships moving quickly or until they get bored.

Hammerheads don’t end relationships very well and tend to run off rather than stay and deal with tough emotional situations. This is something that members of this sign will struggle with in their youth, but can learn to control if they can eventually settle down a bit, something that comes easier with age.

Careers & Goals

Not to sound insulting, but Hammerheads do best when they can make interactions with others short and sweet. People find their energy and enthusiasm contagious, and they can be quite funny and engaging. The only problem is that they also tend to be restless and when they get bored they can take their frustrations out on those around them. They don’t make the best co-workers, so for everyone’s sake it’s best to give them some independence in their careers.

A career in sales fits the Hammerhead’s personality quite well. They are convincing and charming when meeting new people, and have the energy to keep up a busy schedule. They typically enjoy traveling as well, which only makes this an even better fit.

Some Hammerheads will be naturally athletic, and for them, a career in sports may be the perfect fit. Of course, this is highly dependent on their talent level, but they do not lack confidence or energy, so if they have the ability and desire, this is a match made in heaven.

Another particularly well-suited career that many Hammerheads may not have considered is as a hairdresser. Though the job typically means staying in one place, they have a constant rotation of clients who would love their big energy and personality, but never stay long enough to get too involved in their lives.
