primal zodiac sign
Leo + Rooster
Those born under the sign of the Peacock have, more often than not, larger-than-life personalities. They are witty, confident, and have a flair for the dramatic. Peacocks love attention, and for this reason they often like to start drama or controversy. They are highly social and have little desire to spend time alone. Being out and about is where they shine, as is performing whatever task it is that they excel at. Success is important to this sign, and Peacocks love to share (and show-off) their success by treating friends to take part in the spoils of their life victories.
Like their animal namesake, Peacocks live to be admired. They may feign modesty from time to time, but they are very aware that they have an uncanny magnetism that attracts both attention and praise. Members of this sign like to look good, feel good, and be on top. They consider themselves winners in all they do and because of this, they are usually right. To witness a Peacock doing what they do best is to witness confidence personified. They truly believe that they deserve all of the attention and praise they get, and have a very hard time understanding the occasions where they don’t get it.
The biggest weakness of this sign is that they rely heavily on others to fulfill their emotional needs. Peacocks have a deep-seeded need to be proven right all the time. They also need to be loved, admired, and praised. While most people can go through life with occasional reminders of respect and admiration by others, Peacocks cannot. They need to be reminded on a regular basis that they are special, and as big as their egos may be, they cannot rely on their self-worth alone to fill this need. For such a strong, independent sign, Peacocks can be brought down in the simplest way - by being ignored.
Peacocks make friends easily and usually keep a lot of them around. Though they like to keep their closest friends within reach, members of this sign also like to keep a large group of acquaintances around. They know that spending too much time with the same people will get them taken for granted, so they prefer making appearances from time to time in order to get the attention they desire. Aside from being a bit egotistical and a tendency to be know-it-alls, most people genuinely like having Peacocks around. They work hard, so they know how to play hard, and are always up for social events and gatherings.
Those born under this sign are surprisingly dedicated in matters of love. Though many believe they are too in love with themselves to be in love with anyone else, this is not actually true. Peacocks have big hearts and when they fall in love, they fall hard. When this happens, members of this sign will go out of their way to shower attention and affection on their partner - after all, this is the way they interpret love. It can be quite a challenge when it comes to sharing an actual partnership, as Peacocks strongly prefer being the boss of everyone, but with age Peacocks can learn to share their lives with someone else - especially someone who knows (and reminds them often) how lucky they are to be in the relationship.
Careers & Goals
Choosing the right career for a Peacocks is not a matter of what they can or can’t do - it’s a matter of where they can shine the brightest. Peacocks are highly capable and highly confident - a potent combination for success wherever they go. They may not be the smartest of the group, but they will most likely become the leader anyway because of their self-assured swagger.
Peacocks do best when they are in charge. In all honesty, they can be downright bossy and demanding, so it’s best if they are either the leader of a group or in a position where they can control their own destiny. As long as they get to choose their path in life, they will pursue their goals with the utmost intensity. Peacocks need to be the best at what they do, and they are willing to put in the time and effort necessary to do so. That said, the most important consideration in choosing a career is where their inner passion lies.
Some jobs do tend to make better fits than others, though, and those are usually the ones that fit with a Peacock’s individual skills and personality traits. Peacocks who are naturally athletic will do well in sports because they also possess the will to win and the desire to earn the admiration of their fans. The same goes for actors, musicians, and other types of performers. The only real challenge there is that Peacocks are not good at self-assessment, and therefore tend to believe that they have the requisite talent to succeed even if they do not.
Less flashy careers that fit the Peacock profile include that of teacher, police officer, news anchor, hairdresser, and public relations officer. In all of these, members of this sign can exercise their bossy side while becoming well-known and appreciated (at least locally) for their talents.
