Primal Zodiac Sign of Honey Badger

Powerful, passionate, and resilient, those born under the Primal Zodiac sign of the Honey Badger are fierce competitors who are not afraid to go after what they want. This incredibly complex sign is extremely powerful and capable, but also highly emotional. When focused they can harness great power and wisdom to accomplish what few others are capable of. When out of balance they can become terrible tyrants, equally capable of using their power for destruction and manipulation if left unchecked.

Like their animal namesake, those born under the sign of the Honey Badger are fearless in their conquests and will not back down to anyone. In their minds they are a one-man army, capable of conquering the greatest of challenges. In the animal kingdom, the honey badger is well known as the world’s most fearless animal - often taking on much larger and stronger predators and treating them like prey.

Deep down Honey Badgers want something to live for beyond mere day to day survival. Survival is easy for them, finding their place in the world is not. On the outside they come across as tough, mysterious, and unable to be broken, but inside they are actually quite fragile and complex. Though socially adept, Honey Badgers are solitary and suspicious by nature. They would rather strike out on their own than be told what to do, and prove this by often doing what they feel is right over what they are told is right.

Though not necessarily intuitive in the “psychic” sense, members of this sign are old souls who carry with them a deep wisdom that allows them to understand human nature. They inherently know what people want, which is why they are often so successful. With this wisdom often comes resentment and contempt for the common man. Honey Badgers only really respect those with power, wisdom, or status that can rival their own.

A considerable dark side lies within this intense and emotional sign. For Honey Badgers to realize their true potential, they must learn to control their emotions (as difficult a task as that might be), and ultimately live for something greater than themselves. This will almost certainly come in the form of leading and inspiring others through their actions. Achieving balance in life will be the great life challenge for members of this sign who must constantly work hard to keep a positive attitude and perspective on life if they hope to achieve true happiness and contentment.

Those who fail to master their emotions will have some hard life lessons to learn. Those who learn to master their emotions will be unstoppable.


Honey Badgers are not easy to get to know. They spend a great deal of their time and energy pursuing their goals, and are almost always alone or leading a group. Those who do get to know them well discover that they are extremely loyal to their friends and actually have a surprisingly great (and shocking) sense of humor. When they relax they can be the surprise hit of the party.

“Intense” is probably the best word to describe Honey Badgers in romantic relationships. Like all things love is often seen as a conquest - a challenge to be won. This is especially true in a Honey Badger’s youth, though it seems to ease over time. Members of this sign have a tendency to be jealous and possessive in relationships and their emotional volatility often creates a great deal of drama, which is why they often attract people who enjoy volatile, dramatic relationships. Add to this their natural mysteriousness and intensity and it’s not surprising to see why many early relationships fail for members of this sign.

Honey Badgers need strong-willed, intuitive types to help balance them out. As much as they like to be in charge, this is one place where they secretly want someone else to take control, even if that just means putting the Honey Badger in his or her place when they start spinning out of control. When they do settle down they are extremely loyal and protective partners and excellent family leaders.


Those born under this sign are natural leaders. They follow their passions and often know exactly what they want. This makes career advice easy: follow your passion. At the same time Honey Badgers are known to chase power, titles, or money, which can lead them down paths that ultimately don’t suit them well. All members of this sign are capable of accomplishing whatever they choose to put their minds to, so they should try to be very honest with themselves and go after what makes them happy. Unfortunately, knowing how to make themselves happy is not one of this sign’s strengths.

In some cases status and wealth can go hand in hand with helping others and being a leader among their people. Careers like Doctor, Surgeon, Financial Planner, Teacher ,or Union Leader are natural fits for all stages of this sign’s lifelong evolution. They have the intellect and wisdom to be great psychologists as well, though they may very well find themselves frustrated by their patients’ lack of quick progress. Instead, each Honey Badger should look for a path that suits his or her personal tastes as well as gives them a purpose beyond the work itself. This can take many forms including military service, entrepreneurship, theater directing, or stand-up comedy.
