primal zodiac sign
Libra + Snake
Elegant, easy-going, and well-mannered, those born under the sign of the Ladybug have excellent taste and a fondness for luxury. They aren’t generally big spenders, but are willing to spend what it takes to make their homes and surroundings stylish and comfortable. Members of this sign want things to be exactly the way they want them, and are very diplomatic about getting exactly that.
Ladybugs achieve things because they are intelligent and capable, but in truth they are big dreamers and idealists who envision living the perfect storybook life someday. Though they enjoy new experiences, deep down every Ladybug fantasizes about coming into money and living a life on permanent vacation. They might not like to admit it, but most would rather miss out on some of life’s adventures in exchange for an easy life of luxuries and relaxation.
Members of this sign can be a little hard to comprehend. They seem to lead simple, care-free lives, but there is more to them than meets the eye. Ladybugs aren’t phony, but they like others to see them as they want to be seen. Above all, they know that they have a role to play in the lives of friends and family. The truth is that Ladybugs are good at manipulating people, but they don’t do this to take advantage of anyone. Instead they usually manipulate situations in order to keep the peace within a group and only rarely for selfish reasons. Ladybugs understand people and know how to tell them exactly what they want to hear. This skill comes from the fact that they are excellent listeners and have good memories. They are sentimental, yet strategic, which is why they give the most sincere and personal gifts and throw the most memorable parties.
The inside of a Ladybug’s mind is a complicated place. They tend to be a bit superstitious and interested in unusual topics. They love getting lost in a good book or movie, especially if there is adventure and/or romance involved. They love the thought of adventure, but prefer to watch from the sidelines rather than jump in themselves. Members of this sign don’t like taking risks. Most won’t even spend $1 on a lottery ticket because the thought of gambling gives them anxiety. Instead, they do what comes naturally to them, which works out quite well. In many cultures the ladybug is considered a symbol of good luck, so it should come as no surprise that those born under the sign of the Ladybug are lucky as well.
This is a sign of peace keepers, which can be seen from the lives of famous Ladybugs Mahatma Gandhi and “peace prize” founder Alfred Nobel. Those born under this sign are usually listening to other people’s problems and trying to figure out ways to please everyone. At certain points they will probably get sick of the game, but they have a hard time shedding their peacemaker role. In truth, the Ladybug doesn’t want to be disliked or unpopular. Members of this sign can’t stand rejection. Plus, being so well-mannered, well-liked, and well-respected is comfortable for them, and is not something they want to give up easily. Because of this they will often get themselves involved in situations they don’t want to be in simply because they are too afraid to say “no”.
Romantic relationships are far more complicated. Most Ladybugs have fantasized about the perfect life since childhood and with big dreams come big expectations. Many members of this sign rely too heavily on relationships for happiness and are disappointed when the reality of “real life” sets in. Relationships are also one place where the ever-giving Ladybug just wants to be able to sit back, relax, and be taken care of. In reality, most partners are not wealthy, good-looking, and romantic enough to sustain the fantasy they have been projected into. At their core Ladybugs want to be happy all the time and tend to put a lot of pressure on their partner to help create this happiness in their lives.
Careers & Goals
The most successful Ladybugs are the ones who follow their own path. This can be difficult for this sign because they generally don’t like to go against the grain, but in this case it is quite beneficial for them to do things their own way. They all possess very good intuition that they should learn to trust more often. Ladybugs are great with money and always manage to have it coming in from somewhere. Creative outlets are a great path to success for this sign. Their unique viewpoint and elegant style are always popular with others.
Whether they know it or not, most Ladybugs are designers at heart. Interior decorating is a natural talent, and they have a great eye for architecture and landscape design as well. Though not big risk-takers by any means, this sign could succeed in the arts by developing their own unique visions into successful business models. Their potential is not limited to art, either. Though they make excellent painters and musicians, Ladybugs are also excellent diplomats and could be successful politicians if they didn’t lack the requisite drive. More fitting are roles like psychologist, couples counselor, marketing director, or public relations executive.
