primal zodiac sign
Virgo + Dragon
Individual, sensitive, and idealistic, those born under the sign of the Polar Bear long to get the most out of life. They are very observant and may learn how to manipulate people and situations at an early age. Polar Bears instinctively know what role to play in various situations and have both the intellect and courage to improvise their way into getting what they want.
Though intellectuals in many respects, Polar Bears are primarily guided by their emotions. This is neither positive nor negative, it is simply the way their minds function. Because of this, members of this sign are often very sensitive to the way others treat them. Despite a certain social bravado, there is a fragility to them that drives many of their fears. These are sensitive souls who want nothing more than the love and respect of those around them. Without obvious gestures of adoration, Polar Bears may begin to doubt themselves which can lead to anxiety and depression.
Polar Bears tend to dwell on the mistakes of the past. They are often too sensitive and may interpret the words and actions of others as barbs directed at them when they are not even being discussed. When self-doubt and depression take over, members of this sign simply shut down. Like their animal namesakes they go into a form of “hibernation” where they basically stop accepting new mental input until they can afford to spend the energy to build themselves back up. When in this state of imbalance, they can be stubborn, inflexible, closed-minded and emotionally disconnected. When this happens it is best to let them pull themselves back together before trying to step in and help.
Members of this sign work hard to earn the respect of others. They lead from the heart, using the intellect as a support system, and are among the most resilient of all signs. This combination allows them to achieve great things as long as they make a conscious effort to stay positive despite the inevitable disappointments that life brings. As concerned as they are in managing their own sense of balance and ambition, it is also important for Polar Bears to share their lessons and their strength with others. In this way they can fulfill their ideals and give themselves a sense of purpose if they don’t already have one.
As much as this strong and sometimes solitary sign can seem distant or self-involved, those close to Polar Bears know that they have very big hearts. Like their animal namesake, members of this sign take care of their own first and foremost, and will defend what they care for with great vigor.
Polar Bears genuinely like to help others, though they can be a bit too bossy at times. Others sometimes feel that they have to choose their words carefully with a Polar Bear so as not to hurt their feelings. It’s true that this sign can be a bit too aggressive socially, though true friends appreciate their honesty and forthrightness.
Romantic relationships will be tricky. Most Polar Bears will toy with love in their youth, but very few will enter into serious partnerships (such as marriage) at an early age. Learning how to balance the love of the self with the love of others is a major theme in the lives of Polar Bears.
While other aspects in the birth chart will influence the finer details of relationships and compatibility, members of this sign generally tend to repeat the same types of relationships with the same types of people. It is only when they learn to love themselves without needing the approval of others that they will be able to see what they truly need in a partnership. Luckily, most members of this sign will eventually figure this out as long as they can face their fears of rejection and the loss of complete control over a situation.
Careers & Goals
When it comes to careers, Polar Bears like to do things on a large scale. For example, those who wish to work in the medical field will not be content as an orderly or nurse, even though these are highly important and respectable jobs. Polar Bears want the highest degree of respect from others so they are more likely to go after roles of doctors, specialists, and surgeons. It is important for this sign to be viewed as “special”.
There are many roles that Polar Bears can play well. The choice of which career to follow is a matter of personal preference. With most signs, it is a sense of inner passion that drives an individual toward a specific career, but in the case of this sign, it can also be a purely intellectual pursuit. Either way, the more each individual can prioritize personal fulfillment over status, money, or authority, the more successful they will be in their chosen career.
Good career choices for Polar Bears include: auditor, inspector, psychologist, criminal psychologist, doctor, veterinarian, lawyer, computer programmer, astronaut, and architect.
