The Three Qualities (Cardinal, Fixed, Mutable)
Cardinal Signs (Capricorn, Libra, Aries, Cancer)
Cardinal signs are go-getters. They like to start things up. They dislike being diverted from the matter at hand. They generally wish to direct their energy into on endeavor as fully as possible. As pioneers, they tend to be the first to think of a project and to be leaders in their particular sphere. They are at their worst when beset by indecision.
Fixed Signs (Taurus, Aquarius, Leo, Scorpio)
Fixed signs are not easily dislodged. They have a sense of their space and know what is theirs. In the same way, they are more likely to have a good idea who they are and what they want. As they are self-assured, they resist those who seek to dominate them and thus can be rebellious when cast in a subordinate role. Basically, they ask to be left alone. On the other hand, they are perfectly capable of exerting influence, even dominance over others. They are at their worst when beset by emotional instability.
Mutable Signs (Virgo, Gemini, Sagittarius, Pisces)
Mutable signs love variety and change. They are easily bored and demand lots of excitement. Travel is particularly attractive to them. They are rarely happier than when in motion; consequently they seek a change of scene more often than most. People born under mutable signs may not be the most stable emotionally. on the other hand, they are very flexible and thus able to adapt quickly to new circumstances. They understand that the only constant quality in life is change. They are at their worst when tied down.
