STINGRAY

Pisces + Tiger

Personality

A seeming contradiction in terms, those born under the sign of the Stingray are adventurous, humanitarian, generous, sincere, rebellious, and emotionally fragile all at the same time. To some this energy may come across as chaotic and wild, which it certainly can be from time to time, but Stingrays are also deep thinkers, dreamers, and idealists. Though they can be sullen and elusive from time to time, members of this sign always stand up for what they believe in.

Like their animal namesake, those born under the sign of the Stingray are mostly harmless. They spend most of their time sitting back and observing, planning, and considering their options. Also like the stingray, members of this sign don’t strike out unless pushed. While they may spend a great deal of time quietly lingering in the background, they are not afraid to stand up for themselves, and can be a very formidable opponent to those who assail their deepest beliefs and personal freedom.

That’s not to say that Stingrays are always quiet and reserved. In fact, this sign has a very gregarious side and will occasionally surprise others with the vigor with which they speak and act. Stingrays love intense conversations and ideas that they can share with others. They can be powerful, outspoken leaders with one group of people and elusive, mysterious, and suspicious observers with another. Members of this sign tend to play whatever role suits them best in different social situations, but are never predictable no matter which role they choose to play.

Stingrays are often attracted to mysterious people, places, and things as well. They relish the unusual and the unexplained, and believe there is far more to life than what our five senses can reveal. Stingrays are also very emotionally unstable. They can vacillate between moods at any given time, and are not very good with moderation. This is a sign that is prone to addiction and escapism if left to their own devices. Though they seem to be very stoic in their beliefs, members of this sign are always second-guessing themselves and others. They are much more emotionally fragile than they seem and get their feelings hurt very easily.

Compatibility

Though they tend to polarize people with their mood swings, it is undeniable that Stingrays have good hearts. They are genuinely interested in people more than money or success. Stingrays will listen to advice but follow their own path in the end. While they have well-tuned social graces at times they can also be loners who need time alone to think and to figure things out. Overall, members of this sign are generous, affectionate, charming, and often funny when among friends. Though they can be a little too intense at times, they are always sincere in their desire to make the world around them a better place.

As with everything else, Stingrays are not good with moderation when it comes to romantic relationships. Not only can they be too emotionally intense in love, they also tend to pick bad partners. Unfortunately Stingrays are suckers for relationships that stir up their emotions instead of relationships that are stable and supportive. Members of this sign tend to become addicted to feeling loved, needed, or wanted. Because of this they can be easily manipulated by those who can match their emotional intensity.

Stingrays will likely go through many relationships before finding one to settle down in for the long haul. They have little trouble attracting partners because they are intriguing, mysterious, and intense. Members of this sign hate rejection, though, and tend to use their charms to lure others in rather than making the first move. When it comes to people, Stingrays have excellent intuition that they should trust more often.

Careers & Goals

Stingrays are very creative, but they are also social and political idealists. Depending on the other (minor) signs in the birth chart, career direction will most likely take on one of these aspects. Whichever path they choose, their artistic sensibility combined with their rebellious idealism makes it difficult for them to do something routine and boring. They either have to be creative or they have to be helping people. A desk job, unless it is at a charity or as an art dealer, is going to be boring and tedious and ultimately will drag them down so far it won’t be worth whatever money or status come along with it.

If anyone should chase their dreams, it should be Stingrays, though a lack of financial stability may lead to an increase in their emotional intensity. Add to that the fact that they are less than stellar with time management skills, and you have a recipe for emotional complexity; excitement with fear, anxiety with hope, and commitment with uncertainty. Yet, these emotional waves are an essential part of a Stingray’s life, and like their animal namesake they tend to let the waves take them wherever they want the individual to go.

Poet, musician, actor, and designer are all fitting roles for a Stingray, as are any job having to do with political or social activism. They may also choose to become involved with charitable events, as they want to help make the world a better place but would also like to make a name for themselves while doing so.
