Primal Zodiac Sign of Gecko

The “spiritual wanderers” of the Primal Zodiac, those born under the sign of the Gecko are deep, energetic, and creative. They get excited about new events, social scenes, and even rough concepts of new ideas.

Like their animal namesake, members of this sign are often found restlessly trying to find the best possible situation to put themselves in, rather than simply relaxing and enjoying the moment. Just as the lizard will move all over a rock to get the perfect amount of sunlight, those born under the sign of the Gecko spend a great deal of energy trying to find the most perfect balance possible. Maximizing their potential enjoyment of every situation is what often drives a Gecko’s behavior, and because of this they can be a bit oblivious to the effect they have on the people around them.

Geckos have a lot of insecurities, though they often try not to show them. They want to be known among their peers as the good-hearted truth-seeker who naturally is much wiser and spiritually deeper than the rest. In many ways, this is exactly what they are, though they are not nearly as close to perfection as they would like to believe. In fact, they often keep themselves busy to avoid noticing that they don’t really make a lot of forward progress on a daily basis. Geckos are far more likely to start new projects or adventures with great amounts of energy that fade out far before anything sustainable can be created.

Because they tend to be big on self-analysis, Geckos are usually pretty healthy. They know what their body needs, almost too well, and are very hesitant to put themselves in situations where they might not have everything they need. What they see as self-awareness is likely to appear to others as being picky, fidgety, and self-absorbed. In truth, Geckos can be so over-analytical and limited in their interests that they have difficulty compromising with others who don’t share their views. Geckos are famously difficult when trying to cohabitate with other people.

Ultimately, Geckos just want to feel good and feel good about themselves. They want life to be a grand adventure and they want something bigger than themselves to live for. Once set in their ways, there is little anyone can do to change a Gecko’s mind. Though they will fight to live their lives the way they want to, they will never intentionally harm others to do so. Geckos believe in the concept of karma and though they can be stubborn they are also kind-hearted humanitarians at their core.


Those born under this sign enjoy an active social life and are most likely to associate with others who share their interests, whatever those may be. They tend to overextend themselves socially, though, because they don’t like to be alone unless they are busy at work on their latest project. Most people find Geckos kind natured and intriguing, if not a bit eccentric. They are rarely on time for events and often cancel plans if they are not feeling in the mood for whatever the group is doing. Over time, members of this sign typically find their own path and often have several different groups that they socialize with, depending on what interests them in that moment.

Romantic partnerships can be very challenging for this sign, mostly because Geckos want to be free to follow their own path at all times. Rules, regulations, and routine are anathema to them, and though they would gain a lot from having a stable partner, they are more likely to enter into non-traditional or non-committal partnerships that don’t require self-sacrifice. This can be very difficult for a sign so focused on feeling good and so in love with the idea of romance, but ultimately Geckos will do whatever it is they are drawn to the most. It doesn’t necessarily help that they tend to pick bad partners for themselves, but this is by design (though often a subconscious design). It takes a rare partner to give the Gecko the freedom they need, and ultimately wandering the paths of life alone may be the only way to do it.


Careers are not as important to Geckos as they are to most people. Freedom is far more important - the freedom to choose their path, to live on their own time frame, to experience life in their own unique way. Geckos earn money however they can, often taking part-time or flexible-schedule jobs while attempting to profit from their interests if possible. Typical career choices for Geckos include: painter, poet, massage therapist, dancer, hairdresser, illustrator, performer, and designer.

The most common role for a Gecko is as a bartender. This job seems to fit their personalities well, offering a social scene, particularly in neighborhood bars or pubs with a good selection of eccentric “regulars”. Many Geckos will look forward to owning their own bar, though the reality of being tied down to a business may not be as rewarding as they might hope.
