There are 12 signs of the Zodiac. In addition to the characteristics that have been assigned to the Sun sign, each will also have traits of one of 4 Elements – Air, Fire, Water, Earth and exhibit the behaviors of one of 3 Modes or types - Cardinal, Fixed, Mutable. These traits and behaviors add depth to the personality of a Zodiac sign. We are not one dimensional – we have Astrological layers!
Air: Analytical, communicative, cerebral- Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
Water: Emotional, sensitive, artistic – Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces
Fire: Enthusiastic, energetic, volatile – Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
Earth: Dependable, practical, material – Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn
Modes or Type: (Quadriplicities)
Cardinal: Initiators, leaders – Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn (Notice that they follow the Equinox/Solstice seasonal changes in North America)
Fixed: Focused, stubborn – Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius
Mutable: Flexible, changeable – Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces
A Sun sign along with its Element and Mode can contribute to how we operate, how we respond and often how we get along with one another.
FYI: Air signs are most compatible with Fire signs and Earth signs are most compatible with Water signs. But, as always – it’s all good.
