Primal Zodiac Sign of Ocelot

In the animal kingdom, ocelots are nocturnal, solitary, and very territorial. They build their own little world around themselves and only rarely will let anyone else in. However, some people (such as famous surrealist painter Salvador Dali) have successfully kept them as pets. This is the secret of the ocelot: They can be dangerous, but are still just little cats deep down at their core. Once they can learn to trust others they can live right alongside everyone else comfortably.

This is the natural way of being for those born under the sign of the Ocelot. They keep others at a distance. They want others to accept the impression of them that they choose to give off. They don’t really want confrontation, so they will likely put up a big front in order to keep others at a distance. These choices most often lead to a mostly solitary lifestyle, which is good for them in some ways and not as good in others. Members of this sign can become reclusive and start to live in their own little world instead of accepting and tolerating the ups and downs of the real world.

Those born under the sign of the Ocelot aren’t solitary because they don’t like other people. In fact, members of this sign enjoy the company of others quite a bit. They sometimes isolate themselves because it is the easiest, and sometimes the only, way to fully harness their immense creative power. A combination of the western zodiac sign of Pisces and the eastern zodiac sign of Rooster, this sign is self-contradictory in many ways, but the two sides also complement one another a great deal.

Rooster gives strength, confidence, and determination which in turn allows Pisces to fulfill its creative dreams and visions. Both sides gain deep satisfaction from these accomplishments which could not exist without this dual nature. This is a sign that can get things done, but in their own unique, visionary style. They truly don’t need others to succeed, but can benefit quite a bit from connecting to people in the real world. If they cut themselves off from others too much they can get too wrapped up in their own little fantasy world and if they socialize too much they will have a hard time finishing the projects they start. The key is balance.


Ocelots like to be inspired by new surroundings and new adventures. These outings sometimes involve others and sometimes are solitary experiences. Members of this sign take the inspiration gained from such events and mold it creatively into their work. Since they do enjoy the company of others, these inspired journeys can be much more rewarding with like-minded friends around. It’s easy for Ocelots to isolate themselves, especially when it comes to creative or personal ventures, so it might be helpful for very solitary Ocelots to think of socializing in terms of doing research on real life, giving them something new to use in their work as inspiration.

Members of this sign have a tendency to push others away when their deepest beliefs and ideals are challenged. They often feel the need to be right in every argument, mostly because they need to believe in themselves and their abilities. Like the wild ocelot, they know they are a smaller hunter up against big odds. While it’s good that they are self-sufficient, they too often miss out on the joys of life, which can only really be gained from interactions with other people.

Ocelots need strong partners who inspire them to challenge themselves, not just take on the challenges of the world. Members of this sign often carry unrealistic expectations of others, and therefore end up disappointed, depressed, and lonely. What they truly need is the ability to look at themselves objectively and unemotionally and realize that it’s not the rest of the world that needs to learn to acquiesce to their ways, but the other way around. Only when they can fearlessly look at themselves honestly will they be able to attract the right kind of partner.


Members of this sign are at their best when they allow themselves to be in their own creative space. They are not necessarily leaders, rather they usually do their best work all by themselves. While the sign of Rooster causes them to be naturally bossy, they prefer not to carry the stress of being in charge of others. They do best if they can work alone and do things their own way - not follow a set system. If given autonomy at work, others may soon realize that they simply have to tell an Ocelot co-worker what they want them to accomplish and set them free to do it their own way.

Many Ocelots will already have a good idea of what drives and inspires them. They should definitely follow their most heartfelt interests and try to find a way to make money doing what they love. There aren’t many specific careers that work best for this combination, though this can be refined using an individual’s birth chart to understand the deeper, subconscious drives that may not be obvious at first glance. Every sign is affected by aspects in the birth chart, but particularly this one (especially when it comes to careers). Those who don’t already have a good idea of what they want to do should pay special attention to certain aspects, such as the position and relationships of Mercury, Jupiter, and Saturn to the 6th House.
