Primal Zodiac Sign of Great White Shark

In the animal kingdom, great white sharks must keep moving constantly or they will suffocate and die. This is an apt metaphor for people born under the Primal Zodiac sign of the same name. Members of this sign are the most restless of the Primal Zodiac and need a constant stream of new experiences to keep them mentally healthy. This is a very outgoing sign that never tires of new people, places, and adventures.

Great White Sharks are extremely social and love to talk almost as much as they love to be talked about. In truth, Great Whites are a bit self-centered and have little interest in subjects that don’t at least indirectly affect them. They don’t intend to be rude, it’s just that they have so many interests and such a lust for life that they don’t want to feel bogged down by anything outside of their immediate scope of thought. They do have tempers, though, which come out when they are either bored or not getting what they want. Great Whites can be downright mean spirited when they are having an “off” day. Luckily this doesn’t happen too often.

Members of this sign have a lot of hobbies, and need to regularly exercise both the body and the mind to stay balanced. More so than any other sign, Great White Sharks lose interest quickly in their pursuits and will ditch any project at any point in favor of whatever interests them more. They are more cunning than they are intelligent, which is why many of them end up doing well in school without really trying. Great White Sharks are always looking for corners to cut and steps to skip, and are usually able to do so successfully. Getting things done quickly is more important than getting them done right.


It’s not surprising that this outgoing sign has lots of friends. They make friends wherever they go, though many of their “friends” are more like acquaintances that they keep in the vast network of contacts. If you ever need a specialist, ask a Great White Shark first. If they don’t know someone then nobody you know will. Friendships come and go for this sign, but it doesn’t really bother them. They know they have plenty of people around whenever they need them.

Love is not so easy for a Great White Shark. Members of this sign tend to be too impulsive, flighty, and fickle for most long-term relationships. They need someone who can both keep up with and stabilize their wild energy. This is not easy to find. Once they do find someone, though, the Great White will be hooked and will likely learn to change their energy to fit the relationship better. You’ll never totally tame a Great White Shark, but you can convince them to swim in a smaller circle.


While their need to constantly be moving is mostly metaphorical, it is true that Great White Sharks deeply enjoy careers that literally keep them in motion. Any job that combines travel with human interaction is a match made in heaven, such as taxi driver, bus driver, ship captain, airline steward, chauffeur, boat tour guide, etc. Some of these jobs are more glamorous than others, but members of this sign who can get past the concern of how they are viewed by others can find true happiness in careers like these.

Similarly, other jobs that keep them on their feet with new experiences also fit the Great White Shark’s personality. A career as a reporter is common, while roles in careers with an ever-changing clientele can fill this need as well, such as hairdressing, ad writing, or running a pub.
