Classifying Zodiac Signs
Classifying Zodiac Signs by Duality
Each Sign has a Duality. Astrologers use different names such as assertive/passive, yin/yang, and male/female to describe the dualities. Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius and Aquarius are all assertive (extroverted) Signs while Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn and Pisces are passive (introverted) Signs.
Classifying Zodiac Signs by Modality
There are three modes: Cardinal, Fixed and Mutable. The Cardinal Signs are efficacious and self starters. Fixed Signs are focused and determined. Mutable Signs are flexible and adaptable.
The Signs are further grouped into one of the four Elements. The Elements Fire, Earth, Air and Water each have its own temperament. The Fire Signs are vital and intense. Earth Signs are practical and stable. Air Signs are social and intellectual. And last but not least the Water Signs are intuitive and emotional.
No two Zodiac Signs are exactly alike. Try to familiarize yourself with the three classifications. It will give you a better understanding later on when interpreting an astrology chart.
