The Zodiac in a Blink

This week we have talked a lot about Astrology and the numerous Astrological occurrences that are happening right now, so check those out if you haven’t because a lot is going on!

We have the third super moon coming up on March, on the Vernal Equinox, which I will be posting about as it comes closer.

Tonight is just going to be brief run down on the basics of the Zodiac Signs.

I am only focusing on the basic & positive aspects of the signs in this post, if anyone in interested in the more negative characteristic traits on the zodiac I can post that later.

Few Brief Notes Before We Begin

Notice that even though the Gregorian Calendar we use to tell time starts in January, the Zodiac Calendar starts late March with Aries.

Signs can be Cardinal, Mutable, or Fixed.

Cardinal Signs

These signs kick off each season (Aries – Spring, Cancer – Summer, Libra – Fall, Capricorn – Winter) and are the Leaders & “idea setters”.

Cardinal Signs like to be first, prize originality and are trendsetters – the ones you use to kick off a party and initiate great plans.

Fixed Signs

These Signs fall in the middle of each season (Taurus – Spring, Leo – Summer, Scorpio – Fall, Aquarius – Winter) and are the “Stabilizers” who set solid foundations.

Fixed Signs take the creative spark from the Cardinal Signs and craft it into something real & then run the distance to the goal line.

Mutable Signs

These Signs end each season (Gemini – Spring, Virgo – Summer, Sagittarius – Fall, Pisces – Winter) and are the ones who are best at adaptation, as they come at the changing of the seasons.

Mutable Signs can fit into almost any situation and the perfect the plans being carried out by the Fixed Signs.

They also each represent the elements, three signs for each one – Fire, Earth, Air and Water, so check out those blogs for even more information.
