The modes or qualities of the Astrological signs are three in number, namely Cardinal, Fixed and Mutable. The modes are the other factor, beside the four elements, that makes each sign a unique twelve-fold division of energy. The Cardinal signs are out-going, while Fixed signs are in-taking and Mutable signs are changeable in their behavior.


The fixed signs are Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius. Venus Is their ruling planet. The Sun, Pluto and Uranus, respectively. Taurus is the most stubborn of the earth signs-it is slow to change And exemplifies the fertile aspects of spring. Leo is the most stable of the fire signs-its Sun ruler ship most fully characterizes the heat and generative powers of summer. Scorpio is the most powerful and controlling of the water signs-it gives its stamp to the sensuous Aspects of fall and its ruler Pluto symbolizes increasing darkness and the death of most growth in nature. The fourth fixed sign, Aquarius, is the most dominant of the air signs-originally ruled by Saturn and in modern times by Uranus it symbolizes universal thought and the cool detachment of winter.

Fixed-sign people 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, fixed-sign people 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. Fixed-sing people are at their worst when beset by emotional instability.
