The Astrological
Modalities
 

 

 

In Astrology, there are three Modalities:

  • Cardinal
  • Fixed
  • Mutable

The Astrological ModalitiesThey are also called the "Quadruplicities."

 

There are four signs that share the same Modality in the Zodiac which encompass the 12 Signs. Thus, there are 4 Cardinal signs, 4 Fixed signs and 4 Mutable signs. They also comprise one Element from each category i.e. Air, Fire, Water, and Earth.

 

Each Modality is identified by specific characteristics and, basically speaking, represents the temperament expressed from you into the world. It is how you respond to pressure or tension. It is also our response to the stimuli of every day living and situations that arise. The Modalities give a crystal clear picture of how each one of us handles this energy.

 

The "Cardinal" Modality


The Cardinal Signs are independent, impatient, pioneering, active, and powerful. They include Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn.

 

The "Fixed" Modality


The Fixed Signs are organized, stubborn, determined, and most resistant to change. They include Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius.

 

The "Mutable" Modality


The Mutable Signs are adaptable, resourceful, and have a hard time making a decision. They include Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces.

"God created the stars and the heaven for more than the sake of beauty. He gave them to us for interpretation so that we may live a more productive life. Man is superior to the stars if he lives in the power of superior wisdom. Such a person, being the master over heaven and earth, by means of his will, is a Magus, and magic is not sorcery but supreme wisdom."
-- Paracelsus
