Cancer + Pig



The life of a person born under the sign of Lobster can be complex and emotional - but only on the inside. Like their animal namesake, members of this sign rarely show the chaos that goes on in their minds to anyone other than their closest, most trusted friends. That’s not to say that a Lobster’s life is chaotic. In fact, most people born under this sign are highly organized and are the first to volunteer their help for a friend or family member’s project. They want others to see them as bright and capable, which they in fact are, but they also have a great deal of self-doubt that shows up through a polite quietness.

Lobsters may be soft on the inside, but they cover their fragility up with a hard exterior. This isn’t the type of tough and spirited shell that some others signs hide behind, but rather a gentleness that suggests that nothing could possibly bother them. Sometimes people mistake this quality for thinking that they don’t care, but in fact few people care more about those close to them than the Lobster.

This is a creative and indulgent sign that can be hard to get to know at first. They can be contradictory at times, as what’s going on inside their hearts and minds doesn’t always match the image that they show others. Those born under the Primal Zodiac sign of Lobster will have to learn to come out of their shells and allow others to see their imperfections if they want to find peace and serenity in life.


Those born under the sign of Lobster are all about family. Close friends and family members are the top priority in a Lobster’s life and they will bend over backwards to try to accommodate the needs of those close to them. Simultaneously, they expect others to share their commitment and can feel slighted and even hurt if their affection is not returned in full. Nevertheless, it takes a lot for a member of this sign to walk away from the needs of their family, which can open them up to being taken advantage of.

Love is of great importance to a Lobster. They won’t ever feel quite complete until they are settled down with a family of their own. This sign’s kindness and affectionate nature makes others feel comfortable with them easily. This quality traditionally benefits them better later in life than in their youth. Young female Lobsters often attract delinquents and troublemakers while young male Lobsters often find themselves thought of as “nice guys” and “just friends”. Luckily this phase will pass when others mature enough to appreciate the true qualities of the Lobster. This sign would do best to wait until a bit later than their peers to settle down for good.

Careers & Goals

Though the thoughtful and intelligent Lobster is capable of succeeding in a great many careers, they gravitate toward jobs that allow them to take care of others, even if indirectly. Any career involving food is perfect for a Lobster such as chef, delicatessen owner, or caterer. Members of this sign see food as their way of giving back, and almost every Lobster has a refined palate and a natural ability to blend flavors.

Lobsters may also find joy in other food-related careers such as ranching or farming, but they often feel a little too dainty for the demands of physical labor. Similarly, this sign can find success in building and construction, though they won’t be doing the heavy lifting for very long. Lobsters are the foremen, planners, and managers of building sites. This role also helps them feel like they are taking care of their family of workers as well as the family that will eventually move into the homes they are constructing.
