primal zodiac sign
Capricorn + Rabbit
Patient, resourceful, and sympathetic, those born under the sign of the Weaver Finch work hard to get ahead. Lucky in money, members of this sign often pride themselves on having nice homes, furniture, and accessories. Sensitive to their surroundings, they need more than just security - they need to express a style all their own. They know they have to earn what they get, and rarely (if ever) rely on luck or the generosity of others to get by.
Like their animal namesakes, members of the Weaver Finch sign are well known for being specialists. Just as the industrious bird builds incredibly intricate nests to retire in, those born under the sign of the Weaver Finch use their organization, patience, and ingenuity to build an amazing life out of what would otherwise appear to be scraps. While the Chinese Zodiac sign of the Rabbit has trouble finishing projects, the Tropical Zodiac sign of Capricorn steps in and takes control when things need to get done.
The “law of attraction” is particularly strong for Weaver Finches in that they are particularly gifted in attracting the things they think about the most. The tricky part is that they are often focused on all the wrong things! The love of money, power, status, beauty, and emotional experience can overpower the very best of intentions for this sign. Likewise, they must be particularly careful to keep a positive, optimistic attitude through hardships as their own attitude will be the biggest factor in how long obstacles take to conquer.
Members of this sign have loads of drive, but a great deal of self-doubt as well. Their own worries and hesitations will be their biggest obstacles, rather than outside forces. Being more artistic and creative than others who share the Capricorn sun sign, Weaver finches will also be more emotionally sensitive than other Capricorns. When trouble arises they can easily become lethargic and melancholy, though they eventually pick themselves up and keep going.
Weaver Finches are not meant for crisis or conflict. Ever focused on the task at hand, they often avoid uncomfortable situations in order to avoid the negative feelings that come with them. Some Weaver Finches will be excellent in crisis, while others will fall apart under the same circumstances, depending on planetary positions in each individual’s birth chart.
Weaver Finches are reliable and sympathetic friends and family members. They are good listeners who like to help solve problems, but they aren’t well suited to listening to problems without offering advice in return. Members of this sign might occasionally avoid dealing with their own problems, but they can’t stand to watch others do the same. Being as sensitive as they already are, they must take care not to absorb the pain and suffering of those who just want someone to hear them complain. Similarly, they have to be careful how much help they recruit from others so they don’t cease to be self-sufficient.
Cautious in new relationships, those born under this sign will want to get a feel for a person’s true nature before giving much of themselves. Part of this is to avoid choosing bad partners, but mostly it is to protect themselves from rejection and the discomfort of having to end dysfunctional relationships. Superficiality is a major concern as well, since Weaver Finches are naturally attracted to status, wealth, and appearances. This is their biggest weakness and can easily lead them through unhappy relationships until they learn to recognize the difference between what appears to matter and what actually matters.
Romantic situations will arise regularly for them, though their hesitation to trust others may end potential partnerships before they arise. Though they are dedicated and loyal to friends, they are not always as faithful in relationships. True love will win out, but Weaver Finches shouldn’t be surprised if it takes time to find the right fit.
Careers & Goals
Because they are going to work so hard and dedicate themselves to a cause so readily, members of this sign need to make goals based on their most genuine values. This is often tricky because this sign has a particular weakness for superficial or material interests. Money, power, status, beauty, and emotion will all lure Weaver Finches from their path. In fact, this is one of the core life goals for this sign - to rise above the false desires in order to find the true ones.
Weaver Finches are best when working toward a singular goal. They need to find a hobby or career that they can get into 100%, otherwise they will have great difficulty finishing the projects they start. Whether they realize it or not, members of this sign have all the staying power they need to make progress in any field. It might come slowly over time, but eventually they can be successful at anything if they stay true to their vision and their values. For most, the majority of their successes will come later in life, which is actually a very good thing (if they can put off having the luxuries and lifestyle they crave). This gives them a chance to explore their true interests and beliefs before committing to a specific career.
Those with a strong urge toward a particular field should follow that path and see where it takes them. Unlike some signs, the actual job they take doesn’t matter as long as they can make progressive changes and be true to themselves. When put in charge they can be dictators who go out of their way to demand the best from their employees, so they must be careful to live up to their own standards if they are going to inspire others to do the same.
