Unique, romantic, and resilient, those born under the Primal Zodiac sign of the Narwhal are capable of achieving great things. Narwhals typically have a calm and care-free exterior, but inside they are bursting with ideas, passion, and a drive for success. What should be a combination of two contradictory signs is instead a marriage of personality traits that help balance each other out. The warm and immediate nature of the Tiger warms up Virgo’s tendency to close themselves off to others, and Virgo’s observant and analytical nature help keep the Tiger’s unpredictable and impulsive nature in check.

Like their animal namesake, those born under the Primal Zodiac sign of Narwhal prefer for life to move slowly, though they can be surprisingly quick and dangerous when challenged. In truth, members of this sign are rebels. Though they may not like this label, Narwhals are born to fight for what they believe in and are highly sensitive to both personal and social injustice.

Inner conflict often comes with the intense drive to achieve and succeed battling the inner need for rational, intelligent planning. A recipe for frustration, members of this sign can be extremely intense when they finally get moving on a project, and it is often best to let them work alone. Achieving balance in life should be the number one goal of this sign. It will be challenging for Narwhals to overpower and quiet down their ever moving mind, but only those who do will find a new focus and clarity that can help them achieve the greatness that they have always dreamed of.


Narwhals are undoubtedly moody, but they have good hearts. Deep down, they want nothing more than to do the right thing and be of service to the greater good. To do this, they need a support system of friends and family who understand their nature and can help them be their best. They need and stable personalities to help them with their constant self-analysis, and fun friends to keep their minds off of their troubles. Narwhals should expect to clash with more fiery personalities, who will most likely interpret the Narwhal’s pensive and emotional nature as fussy and self-absorbed.

Likewise, in love Narwhals will have to find the right combination of stability, understanding, and acceptance in a partner for it to last. Members of this sign have a hard enough time finding balance within themselves to have to help a partner find theirs. Though in their youth they will most likely find themselves attracted to more passionate, chaotic relationships, this sign should eventually settle down with someone grounded, balanced, and accepting of Narwhal’s never-ending quest to find themselves. This may be someone who the Narwhal themselves would have once seen as weak or boring until they mature enough to recognize the incredible strength in their partner’s more stable nature.


Career is likely going to be a big focus in the life of a Narwhal. Such a self-analytical sign who places so much emphasis on passion and purpose is not likely to enjoy a career that is ill-suited to them. It’s also not unlikely for members of this sign to switch careers several times over the course of their lives in a continual search for their place in the world. Ironically many of the jobs that they leave behind will help provide necessary lessons to get them where they want to be. It’s likely that the roles that they once complained about having will be later looked back on with nostalgia.

It’s interesting that the careers of choice do not typically have to be high-paying or well-respected by society for a Narwhal to feel purposeful in them. While each individual should find their own unique path, there are several varied roles that all seem to be well-suited for this sign. These include flight attendant, critic, contractor, crafts-person, designer, stockbroker, and office manager. Narwhals with no idea where to start looking for their life’s purpose may want to try out one of these careers and see where it takes them.
