primal zodiac sign
Pisces + Pig
Sincere, dependable, and a bit eccentric, those born under the sign of the Zebra walk to their own beat. It’s not that they try to be noticed, it’s just that people can’t help but notice them. Like the zebra of the animal kingdom, their authentic but unique way of being gives them a mysterious, attractive quality that is difficult to both understand and resist.
Zebras are social creatures who typically have many acquaintances. Though they can be fairly quiet and reserved they are actually excellent networkers. They can simply walk politely through a room introducing themselves and have half of the room wanting to find out more about them. Though they are friendly with many people, they sometimes have a hard time forming deep relationships with people because they spread themselves too thin trying to keep too many friendships going at once. They simply run out of time to give to others.
Those born under this sign don’t just know a lot of people, they also know a little bit about a lot of different things. Zebras follow what they are attracted to most, which means that they will drop one project in favor of another one with little remorse. Should members of this sign find an interest that they want to stick with, it will most likely be something of an artistic, charitable, or social nature.
Many Zebras are drawn toward charity or social work as they have an inert ability to feel the pain of others. They are sincere in their desire to make the world a better place, but unlike some other signs, they have a hard time knowing exactly what to do about it. Zebras are not the types to start non-profit organizations, but they are the types to donate, volunteer, or work under the guidance of an Executive Director. Zebras may lead by example, but they are not usually considered leaders by themselves or their peers. They have too difficult of a time making decisions (especially under time restraints) and dealing with conflicts to play anything but a supporting role.
Those born under this sign typically know a great many people, so they rarely find themselves without something to do. Zebras like to regularly pre-schedule social situations so that they always have something on the books. There seems to be a certain “social momentum” that they need to keep going. It is not unusual for them to offer to throw parties for others at their home, where they can choose the theme, food, and decor for the event. Zebras are easy to get along with and are great listeners, though they don’t always have much to say in return.
Finding the right romantic relationship can be difficult for Zebras. Despite their best intentions, they usually end up choosing the wrong partners. In truth, this is a sign that is so trusting and hopeful that they end up getting taken advantage of. Zebras are attracted to people who can make them feel things - good or bad - rather than the partner that would be perfect “on paper”. It is likely that members of this sensitive sign will get their hearts broken a few times before finally learning what makes a good partner.
Careers & Goals
Being sensitive, emotional, and creative, Zebras often choose careers in art. This may be a very good fit, though they may find themselves frustrated by the challenges that go with being a professional artist. Even if they decide not to be a professional artist, most Zebras will end up with some sort of artistic hobby such as music, writing, illustration, painting, poetry, or acting.
Zebras love to express themselves artistically, but they are mostly intrigued by the way two or more elements interact. Whether those elements are people talking, colors on a canvas, or a string quartet, it is truly the chemistry of multiple elements that excites them. Though they are more creative-minded than logic-driven, Zebras actually make excellent scientists, especially chemists.
Most Zebras feel a connection to their community and the world around them which is why many choose a career where they feel that they could make a difference. Many Zebras choose careers in social work or fundraising in order to fulfill this aspect of their personalities. Those who don’t work in the field are likely to be involved in other ways, such as donating to a cause or signing a petition.
