primal zodiac sign
Libra + Pig
Loyal, helpful, and sensitive, those born under the sign of the Marmot are polite and well-mannered individuals who value balance and happiness above all else. They are extremely interested in people, both in a social and anthropological way. They don’t have the greatest instincts and may be more than a bit naive, but they are always kind and hospitable above all else.
Some individuals find them a bit boring. This is a sign that can follow the same routine day in and day out as long as it suits their needs. They don’t like drama and shy away from confrontation whenever possible. It’s not that they are weak or afraid, they simply prefer to focus their energy on positive thoughts and have trouble understanding those who seek drama in their lives.
Kindness is the first priority for a Marmot, and no matter how busy they are trying to build up their own lives they are often willing to help a friend in need, or a friend of a friend for that matter. Members of this sign often have many acquaintances and activities within their communities. They like to be helpful and like to be a part of something bigger than themselves, which is why Marmots are among the first to volunteer when help is needed.
Those born under this sign have to be careful of overextending themselves. They often take on so many tasks for so many people that they completely avoid taking care of themselves. Deep down they know that their helpful nature is their biggest social asset so they constantly give and give to others hoping for respect, admiration, or at the very least friendship from those they give to. Others may take advantage of them for this reason and prey upon their desire to be of service to others. Marmots need to learn to say “no” every once in a while so that they can be appreciated for how much they really do.
Because of their generosity and sense of community they have a hard time understanding those who act only on their own behalf. In this way they are a bit more spiritually advanced than other signs, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have lessons to learn. In this lifetime, those born under the sign of the Marmot need to develop a sense of self along with their sense of community. It’s ironic that a sign so interested in people often doesn’t take the time to become interested enough in themselves.
Members of this sign can get along very well with many different people and they often take part in several different social groups. Marmots love people and are genuinely interested in them and their lives. They are not especially loud or gregarious, and don’t require a ton of attention. They are well-mannered, polite, and often sophisticated individuals who only want to have a good time. Most people find them pleasant to be around, but some might think of them as a little boring. In truth, Marmots can be so polite that they come across as dull. They are also sensitive to all but the most playful criticism, which is likely to bother more audacious personalities.
Marmots do well in love, often finding several potential partners throughout their lives. Part of this is due to knowing so many different people that it’s nearly impossible for them not to find potential mates and part of this is because they are so kind hearted that others can’t help but love and admire them. Chances are good that they will attract a more dominant partner, but they should be sure that they are respected for their role and contribution (which dominant types may dismiss as weak or unimportant). On the other hand, a partner who is just like them will create a partnership that is missing the excitement and adventure that Marmots secretly crave. A good match will be someone who challenges them to grow individually while respecting and supporting their desire to give to their community.
Careers & Goals
It’s not surprising that working with people is high on the list of importance for a potential career. Luckily, there are many jobs that require and encourage working with others. As a natural host, Marmots make great chefs and restaurateurs, and they often have an above-average passion for food. They also work well within the rules, which makes careers in human resources, social work, and academic advising and administration good fits.
Those who choose to specialize in a particular industry will do well as long as, once again, the primary focus is working with and helping other people. They aren’t selfish enough to do well in sales or public relations. Instead they should choose a role that lets them communicate with others while looking out for both their clients’ and their own best interests. In this case, Marmots can succeed greatly as doctors, nurses, hairdressers, beauticians, community leaders, volunteer coordinators, fundraisers, and hiring managers.
