primal zodiac sign
Cancer + Tiger
The name sounds scary, but like their animal namesake, people born under the sign of Vampire Bat are mostly harmless. I said mostly. They will tirelessly fight on behalf of their friends and family, and if you are considered an enemy, expect a Vampire Bat to keep attacking until one of you is finished. Members of this sign are highly emotional and take any perceived slight very personally. They are extraordinarily intense and very confident. They consider themselves the protectors of those close to them, which makes it much better to either be as close or as far away as possible from a Vampire Bat.
Deep down Vampire Bats just want to be loved and accepted. They are surprisingly giving to those they care about, and will go out of their way to make someone feel special and loved. They aren’t fearless, but they act like it. They want to be admired and seen as leaders, but sometimes their emotions get the best of them and they have trouble containing their feelings.
Members of this sign are challenging to understand because they are so complex. They can be adventurous, eccentric, and on top of the world one day and depressed, jealous, and downright mean-spirited the next. They regularly let their emotions lead them, and will struggle throughout their lives to learn to calm down and think things through before reacting. Achieving balance is the key to their long-term happiness.
Much like the mythical vampire that they are named after, those born under the sign of Vampire Bat are mysteriously alluring. They have a natural charm combined with a dangerous edge that draws others to them. Their tendency to lose control emotionally may be off-putting to some, but true friends know that a Vampire Bat is harmless to them. In fact, it’s much better to be friends than enemies with this sign, as they only bark at friends while they may bite at enemies.
Deep down this sign is all about heart. In the animal world, a vampire bat will often adopt the orphaned young of a fallen comrade. Though they can be dangerous and territorial, they have a soft side that wants to take care of those close to them. Their best friends will be those who understand them, as difficult as that might be, and who are willing to take the good with the bad.
In love, the Vampire Bat faces a similar situation. They will easily attract others without trying, but their volatility may make long-term relationships difficult. In a way this is a natural weeding-out process that will eventually land them with someone they form a partnership with. Members of this sign are drawn to beauty and have plenty of drama to offer back, and they love hard and all-out but also get badly hurt emotionally when they are the ones left behind. Overall, love will be easy (though dramatic) for this sign. They may go through many relationships before finding “the one”, but they eventually will end up happy and content.
Careers & Goals
Generally lucky in love, the same can’t be said for the careers of Vampire Bats. Despite their natural leadership abilities and creative thinking, they can blow a lot of their credibility by responding to situations with excessive emotional intensity. This is especially true of young members of this sign. While they mean well and are endlessly devoted to the success of the team, they will struggle to be taken seriously by older, wiser management. Luckily this sign has the ability to overcome this challenge, unless they become too consumed with their own egos, in which case they will take much longer to change. Accepting that they cannot control everyone and everything is a critical step in shaping their futures.
Some careers lend themselves well to the Vampire Bat’s natural intensity, though, and these are areas where members of this sign can shine while still growing toward balance. Those born under this sign actually do quite well as politicians when they are older and have learned to control their reactions to situations. They truly care about making their communities better and this is a great way for them to channel their energy.
Politics, though, are tricky for the Vampire Bat, as they can quickly fire up a lot of emotional triggers for this sign. Those who want to only be semi-political should consider a role such as a union leader or representative. This is literally a job where they can fight for the betterment of those they consider “their people”. Similarly, a role leading fundraising or operations for a non-profit could be the perfect fit for a Bat. They have the chance to give of themselves while fighting for a cause. They also love the thought of people seeing them as selfless public servants, and thrive off of the energy that comes from the daily struggle for what they believe in.
