primal zodiac sign
Sagittarius + Monkey
Curious, independent, and optimistic, those born under the sign of the Roadrunner are all about having the freedom to do what they want when they want to do it. They are always looking for a new adventure or challenge, and delight in their own ability to figure out new solutions to problems quickly and easily.
To be fair, Roadrunners are selfish, but not in a malicious way. They just follow their interests (until they get bored) and don’t fully realize how their actions affect others. In fact they will follow their interests without much thought as to the consequences in general. Roadrunners choose to be a bit unaware of others because they don’t want to let the sensitivities of others get in the way of their goals. Members of this sign laugh at what they find funny, and don’t necessarily have a great filter between what they think and what they say. Again, they are not trying to hurt anyone's feelings, they are just doing what comes naturally.
Roadrunners cannot allow themselves to become bored, under any conditions. If they do they can become terribly moody, and will turn to manipulation to keep their brains stimulated. This is a sign that needs to explore the world around them. Being out and about and learning new things is essential to their mental and emotional well-being. Like the famous cartoon roadrunner of Warner Brothers fame, members of this sign cannot be captured, tied down, or even caught up to.
The biggest challenge roadrunners face is the potential to become disconnected from humanity. Through Sagittarius they naturally are more future-focused than presently aware, and can unintentionally neglect social graces and niceties. Add to that the Monkey’s influence (self-centered, likes to trick people just to see if they can, manipulative, clever), and you have all of the skills and mindset required to become a highly skilled con artist. Of course, this is not the Roadrunner’s natural course, but there will be temptation at a young age to use their accelerated wits to get what they want. If this continues into adulthood it can become a problem, as taking the easy (and potentially illegal) road may appear to be the quickest path to success. Self-awareness is the key to maturity and maturity is the key to growth.
Maintaining a bustling social life is a major goal for Roadrunners in general. Though they are highly independent by nature, members of this sign are too cheerful, gregarious, and full of life to not share a good deal of time with other people. Roadrunners like to meet new people and visit new places, so it’s not unusual for them to have several different groups of friends all over the place. Their optimism and wit draw others to them easily, though they can be difficult to pin down one-on-one.
Romantic relationships are complicated for this sign. Roadrunners are naturally more comfortable in situations where they can come and go as they please, which makes any type of partnership difficult to maintain. Add to that the emotional element of a romantic partnership and it’s easy to see why Roadrunners have difficulty settling down with someone else.
In their youth these types of flighty relationships will come and go with little dramatic resonance, but as they get older, Roadrunners will have to choose between domestic partnership and living an independent life, as most potential partners will not put up with a disconnected or otherwise unavailable mate. Love may or may not play a strong role in the direction of their lives, depending on other (minor) signs in the birth chart.
Careers & Goals
Back in Medieval times, those born under this sign would have an obvious career. Unfortunately “Adventurer” is no longer a very lucrative career choice. Because Roadrunners naturally gravitate toward what they find intriguing, most will have already made up their mind about what they want to do with their life by the time they reach adulthood. Roadrunners also like to show off by doing what they are good at, so many develop their inborn talents early on in life.
At the same time, many of the career choices made in the excitement of youth may not be quite so practical when adulthood arrives and the rent becomes due. For those looking for a fitting career choice, the following jobs are good fits for this adventurous sign: City planner, Engineer, Film Director, Journalist, Scientist, Writer, Ambassador, Broadcaster, College Professor, Diplomat, Explorer, Lawyer, Missionary, Professor, Athlete, Translator, Tutor.
