primal zodiac sign
Aquarius + Ox
People born under the Walrus sign are likely some of the most curious people you will ever meet. They can be exceptionally smart and hardworking to a fault. They have big ideas that they have no intention of allowing to simply remain ideas. It’s tempting to think of Walruses as the cartoonish mad scientist or absent-minded inventor making fantastic machines in his basement, but in reality Walruses are much more grounded than this. They have many layers to their thinking, but are always fair with others. They are not overtly social, yet they work extremely hard on projects with the intention that others can benefit from them.
The best way to describe a Walrus is as a person who works hard to succeed, but has to do things their own way. Walruses aren’t inherently rebellious, they just know what needs to be done and trust themselves to do it. They don’t like to follow the typical ways of doing things, mostly because they’ve already figured out how to do them better.
Walruses have the uncanny ability to come across as mysterious without intending to. Because they are always thinking and working, even those close to them don’t really know them all that well. This is not intentional on the Walruses part. They are actually very friendly, they are just more interested in listening than talking, and have no qualms being by themselves to work on whatever project is going on in their head.
Members of this sign are hard to pin down. They don’t fall in love easily, and they can be hard to get to know. If you can be patient with them, you can slowly break down their unintentional walls and get inside to find out what’s going on in their heads, which is always fascinating. Once they let you in and trust you, they will be loyal and protective. They would love to include you in their grand schemes and take you along on their journeys. Just don’t expect a Walrus to change. They are fixed in their ways, but if you can accept that, they are among the most interesting and friendly people you can find.
Careers & Goals
Walruses can excel in many areas, but they need to be careful to choose a field that suits their personality. You will never find a Walrus playing the role of a salesman, waiter, or bartender. Those are far too social and don’t offer enough challenge. Walruses need a way to blend their ability to work hard with the time and freedom to do things their own way.
One career where they excel is as teachers, particularly at the higher education levels. Walruses make great professors. They have no problem working hard to get the education necessary, and enjoy sharing their unique way of seeing the world with others. In particular, they do best as professors of social sciences (archeology, anthropology, sociology, social psychology).
Not all Walruses enjoy education, however. In fact, some downright hate it. Walruses raised in strict schools that don’t encourage creative thinking can stifle the fruitful minds of this sign. In these cases, members of this sign often strike out on their own directly after high school. They can often be found in jobs where they can work long, hard hours while being able to put things together in the way they see fit. They can often be found as mechanics, construction workers, carpenters, or even as artists that work with big, industrial materials, like metal sculptures.
