Zodiac Sign Modalities

In astrology, the 12 zodiac signs are split into 3 modalities: cardinal, fixed and mutable. The cardinal signs are, Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn. The fixed signs are, Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius. Finally, the mutable signs are Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces. Let's find out what this means!


The cardinal signs, (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn) are the initiators of the zodiac. Their signs are associated with the beginning of a new season and are all about trying new things. Aries brings in the spring, Cancer begins the summer, Libra starts autumn, and Capricorn welcomes the winter. These are the movers of the zodiac. They dream big and make things happen!


The fixed signs, (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius) all appear in the middle of their season. Therefore, they are the stable signs of the zodiac. Fixed signs are the ones you can rely on. They are also super creative and will see an idea through to the end. These signs are dedicated to what they do and have and artistic side to them. They are definitely signs you would want to be friends with!


The mutable signs, (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces) are the thinkers and philosophers of the zodiac. They are the signs that end their season. Therefore, mutable signs are always prepared for when a change happens in their lives. They work hard to prepare everyone for when a change comes and have the open-mindedness to see everyone's perspective on an issue.
