Is Your Sign Cardinal, Fixed or Mutable?
As you delve into astrology, you will
discover that human attributes follow the natural rhythms
of nature. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the way characteristics
of the three Qualities are derived. Each sign of the Zodiac
is assigned to one of three Qualities--categories professional
astrologers call the "quadruplicies." There are four signs
to each category: Cardinal, Fixed and Mutable. Each Quality
has a special role to play in relationship to their placement
within the four seasons. If this is difficult to understand
(and if you find yourself rereading what you just read)--
relax--you will "get it" when you check out your sign and
compare your profile to other signs within your Quality group.
If you know your rising sign (also called the ascendent) check

To understand your Quality, you must first
know what Element you are. If you don't know if you are an
Earth, Air, Fire or Water sign, check out The
Elements, which is also part of The Astrology Zone. Once
you've read about your Element, come back here to check out
more information about your personality and that of people
you know. Find out if you are a real Cardinal, Fixed or Mutable

season and it is your job to maintain that season. Fixed signs
concentrate energy and solidify ideas. Taurus (spring), Leo
(summer), Scorpio (autumn), and Aquarius (winter), are the

month within each season. The role for these signs is to prepare
for the transition to the next season and their traits are
communication, flexibility, and destruction. Mutable signs
are Gemini (late spring), Virgo (late summer), Sagittarius
(late autumn) and Pisces (late winter).
