Primal Zodiac Sign of Corgi

Loyal, observant, and analytical, those born under the Primal Zodiac sign of the Corgi are devoted friends and family members who take on the role of caretaker with great passion. Few others are as eager to jump in and help a friend in need, and Corgis take great pride in this. More so than other signs, members of this sign like to fill a very specific role in the lives of other people, thus getting the majority of their own personal fulfillment through their service to others.

While this appears to be self-sacrificing behavior on the outside, Corgis are very specific about the nature in which they help. While they are genuinely concerned with the happiness of those close to them, they also help in order to prove how helpful they are. Through each success Corgis become more self-assured and justified in their approach. Unfortunately this also leads to arrogance and closed-mindedness when it comes to accepting or integrating the ideas and approaches of others. Members of this sign can easily fall into the trap of thinking they are smarter and more capable caretakers than others and may begin to lose perspective on the reality of the situation.

In the animal kingdom, corgis were initially bred to serve a dual role - that of protector and director of livestock and the land they grazed upon. In a time before farmers had their land divided by fences, those with fertile grazing land would have to worry about livestock wandering away while outside livestock consumed all of their best resources. These small-statured dogs were the perfect caretakers for both concerns. They would keep each farmer’s livestock in its own territory by nipping at the heels of any animal who wandered outside of its respective boundary.

This is an astute and meaningful correlation to the Primal Zodiac sign of the Corgi. Those born under this sign are caretakers and protectors of their own herd. They don’t mind be overtly bossy because this is part of the role which gives them purpose. Others may not like being herded as much as Corgis like herding them, but without someone or something to take care of it’s not unusual for members of this sign to feel lost in the world.

The biggest life challenge for Corgis will be learning how to live independently, which is ironic because both partner signs (Virgo and Rooster) are highly independent signs. Those born under this sign must understand that there are many roles to play in life and there must be some sense of fulfillment outside of the caretaker or managerial role. One cannot view life objectively if they never step away from their normal life long enough to see the big picture. It is far too easy for Corgis to lose perspective this way and take themselves and themselves far too seriously.


Corgis are among the most helpful friends that anyone could hope for. They enjoy coming to the rescue, being the guardian and leading the herd, but don’t realize that others resent being thought of as cattle in need of herding. Those born under this sign don’t get along particularly well with strong personalities with different approaches to life than their own. In the mind of a Corgi their approach is the correct one. They are always aware of the faults of others, but rarely pay attention to their own. Put simply, they have trouble recognizing that life has different approaches and will refuse to try out anyone else’s ideas as long as they believe their course is the “correct” one.

Love for a Corgi can be tricky to say the least. Deep down they are romantics who long to be cared for as much as they care for others, but they have trouble allowing others to care for them. They require a partner who is strong enough to stand up to their bossiness, but they also become irritated when others won’t let them be in control. Corgis have to learn to let go and respect others opinions and at the same time learn to play a new role - that of an equal partner.

If they have children, Corgis will likely play the role of caretaker very seriously. There is no sense of expression more important than caring for their own, and Corgis make doting parents to their young. Here is where they must be most careful not to lose perspective. Members of this sign tend to be either too controlling - worried that something will happen to their children if they don’t constantly intervene - or not controlling enough - letting their herd roam freely and only interfering to fend off outsiders. Neither role is healthy for any party involved, and once again reinforces the need for Corgis to be open to outside perspectives and approaches to life.


Corgis are excellent at organization. They can take a room full of chaos and turn it into a useable and even stylish space within a single day. They have complete belief in themselves to be able to handle any situation at any time, and make good managers and experts in their field. They are often subconsciously self-promoting and bossy, but they can usually back this up with legitimate management skills and an intuitive understanding of organizational behavior.

Members of this sign have a natural tendency to gravitate toward the field of medicine. The actual job title is less important than the surroundings, though the most common jobs are Doctor, Nurse, Psychologist, Dentist, or Chiropractor. Corgis need to be in charge of people, specifically playing the role of caretaker. Those whose observational and analytical skills are particularly well-tuned may also choose careers as private or police detectives - a role that this sign has both the intuition and bravado to succeed in.

Whatever career path they choose, it’s very common for Corgis to start off with careers as waiters or bartenders. Some will become lifers in the food service industry while others will go on to seek a higher education.
