primal zodiac sign

VULTURE

Libra + Rat

Personality

Charming, friendly, and intelligent, those born under the Primal Zodiac sign of the Vulture are idealists at their core. They have read all of the most romantic books and seen all of the most adventurous movies and want nothing more than for life to be as exciting and wonderful as it can possibly be. They appreciate luxury and elegance and are among the top tastemakers you can find. For Vultures, life is always about the big picture and the big dream. They don’t necessarily enjoy scraping by, but they will do it if it leads to the potential for big opportunities.

In the animal kingdom vultures have something of a negative connotation to them. Most people see the vulture as a lazy creature circling around something else’s kill so they can go feed on the scraps. This perception is a bit unfair. These birds are often, in fact, circling in order to climb air thermals to greater heights. And while they are opportunists, vultures are also brilliant strategists - knowing when to take advantage of a situation and when they are outmatched by another predator. More than anything, they are survivors, ready to do what it takes to get what they need from life.

Those born under the sign of the Vulture are very much the same. They use their excellent instincts to position themselves in the right place at the right time and then use a combination of charisma and intelligence to get others to give them what they want. Not that they couldn’t get what they want on their own, but to be honest members of this sign don’t like to work too hard when they don’t have to. They would prefer to charm and befriend their way into a good position diplomatically than grind away like a commoner.

At the heart of all their actions is the desire to have others like and approve of them, though they would never admit it. They work hard to portray an easy-going personality even though they are often internally tense and have trouble relaxing or quieting their minds. Vultures know that they can get farther in life with a smile and a carefree attitude and that giving up the front means giving up the potential for money, power, status, and general improvement of their lives.

This is the good and the bad truth about Vultures - they are endlessly ambitious and want to live the perfect life. They not only have big dreams, but big expectations from life. Most of the time, though, their lives (and the people in them) don’t live up to their expectations. At some point in their lives it is important for members of this sign to accept life’s ups and downs and learn to appreciate the little things in life. If they don’t they risk becoming jaded, stressed out, and unsatisfied. Vultures already care more about appearances than most people, and an unbalanced attitude toward life can lead to greed, vanity, and ultimately a lot of failed relationships.

Compatibility

Vultures love to meet new people, and new people seem to love to meet them too. Charming, witty, and easy-going, members of this sign have excellent social skills and attract others to them with ease. In truth, Vultures have a lot of friendly acquaintances, but only keep a small group of true friends. With their closest friends and family they tend to play the role of diplomat. They are excellent listeners and give the best advice. Unfortunately they rarely take their own good advice or the advice of others - not that they ever ask for it - Vultures are notoriously private with their own internal issues and have a hard time trusting others.

Love is always complicated, but particularly so with this sign. Like most people Vultures dream of the perfect relationship to fit their dream life, but unlike most people, Vultures have a hard time accepting that no relationship is perfect. They tend to get disappointed in others easily, probably because they hold their partners to impossible standards. Vultures hate the thought of settling for less than the best, and are usually willing to give up on a relationship if another, more attractive possibility presents itself. Most members of this sign grow out of these unrealistic expectations over time, but not before a lot of hearts have been broken. As with all things, Vultures need to learn to accept and appreciate the simple things in life if they want to avoid spending their lives disappointed in love.

Careers & Goals

If you haven’t already figured it out, members of this sign are ambitious, imaginative, and have good intuition. For some, their career choice will be obvious - it is whatever they in their hearts believe that they have to do in order to feel complete. For others, there may be a great deal of confusion and stress over which path to take. While Vultures are willing to take risks they are also terrified of making the wrong decision.

According to astrology, the top career choices for those born under the sign of the Vulture are Writer, Lawyer, and Politician. This makes sense, as this expressive and intelligent sign is also a master of diplomacy. Others not only listen to what a Vulture has to say, most of the time they look forward to the opportunity to do so. This sign also believes strongly in justice and will likely have strong opinions on politics and current events.

Other good career options include Administrator, Appraiser, Auctioneer, Entrepreneur, Negotiator, and Notary.
