Another important way of grouping the signs of the zodiac to
obtain pertinent information about your chart is according to
Quadruplicity refers to the quality of the sign or the essential nature of the sign. In a sense the Quadruplicities refer to a person’s manner of action.
The Quadruplicities are divided into three groups: Cardinal, Fixed, and Mutable. Each group is composed of four signs.
Quadruplicities: Air and Water
The Cardinal signs are outgoing and active signs. They are the
people who like to get things going, the doers of the zodiac.
There is a lot of busyness that goes with the Cardinal signs.
Aries will aggressively set up club and group activities. cancer
will busily mother a whole neighborhood. Libra will restore
harmony to all the relationships they contact. Capricorn will
dutifully help others with their responsibilities.
The Fixed signs are stable and ‘fixed’ just as the term indicates.
They will not be pushed in any way whatsoever. They may not
react emotionally or violently but will just remain steadfast.
Taurus is especially resistant to change. Taurus is very traditional
and must see any new course of action be proved again and again
before it is made part of their life.
Leo dominates. Leo signs must lead and in so leading and
dominating, their ideas will prevail. It will be very difficult to
change Leo’s mind. Aquarius will quietly remain firm.
The whole world can function one way but Aquarius will
function the way they feel is the most progressive. This is the
sign of the genius as well as the revolutionary; either will be
just as adamant. The Fixed signs are dependable and offer great
stability to others in their relationships.
The Mutables are excellent companions because they are beautifully
adaptable. Your way is their way.
Gemini’s are enthusiastic, interesting people. They are never
bored and they pass this love of life on to others.
Virgo’s passiveness and need to be of service can be very
complimentary in relationships. Sagittarians are always on the
go with people and their honesty can be very refreshing in a
relationship. Pisces offers understanding and compassion like
no other sign and these qualities are always in demand.
In the unproductive the Mutable signs can be too easily pushed
away from their own thinking to serve others. You now see how the knowledge gained from Triplicities and Quadruplicities greatly expands your aspect interpretations.
