Signs of the Zodiac

Written By Reilly Geraghty and Morgan Dawson

There are multiple ways that the Signs of the Zodiac are classified in astrology. Two ways are through qualities and elements.

The three qualities are cardinal, fixed, and mutable. They provide insight on how the signs act. Cardinal signs are the ones in the start of the zodiac season. These signs are ambitious and have a desire to be in control. The fixed signs are hardworking, self-reliant, but have trouble forgetting the past and can be stubborn. Mutable signs represent the end of the season: new beginnings. These signs are flexible with their surroundings but can be inconsistent.

Elements are the principles of life for the signs. They are fire, earth, air, and water. Fire signs are enthusiastic, spontaneous, outgoing, temperamental, and impatient. Earth signs are stable, dependable, materialistic, productive, and stubborn. Air signs are clever, imaginative, social, unsympathetic, and detached. Water signs are intuitive, empathetic, sensitive, moody, and manipulative.
