THE TWELVE PERSONALITY TRAITS OF THE ZODIAC

QUADRUPLICITY OF THE SIGNS OF THE ZODIAC


CARDINAL –FIXED – COMMON




 Astrology indeed is very fascinating when you consider the characteristics of the Sun-sign in our life or the Rising-sign and most importantly your Moon-sign. Consider the nature of the Ascendant (Rising-Sign). The ascendant in actual fact tells of the person before you, it portrays you the person and how you carry yourself in your daily and informal life and that is the way the public see and describes you. The image the public see in you is your person-a-lity, which is described as a mask on which the real being(spirit) expresses himself and therefore the public judge of the person from the way he expresses and carry himself in his environment and his interaction with people.


Yea so its all about the Personality,

Personality traits can be grouped under

three categories.

Extroverts,  Introverts,  Ambiverts


Mythology explains that these were the three classes of people who were represented for the ancient games on mount Olympus, these games were organized in honour of the Zeus the Greek god, a game that last for 5 days at every four years, modern day Olympics is a replica of the ancient games.

The first group are those who took part in the contest,

then those who came to buy and sell and

then those who were the spectators.

These are symbolically the three categories of humanity

 These three categories of human types are astrologically described under


Cardinal signs,

Fixed signs and

 Common signs.


In-fact we derive these from the divisions of the twelve signs of the Zodiac into three groups of four signs each.


  Every human being’s horoscope contains:


CARDINAL            FIXED           COMMON

                Aries–Fire     Taurus-Earth     Gemini – Air

               Cancer-Water    Leo – Fire         Sagittarius  - Fire

                Libra- Air         Scorpio-Water    Virgo  - Earth

                Capricorn-Earth Aquarius–Air   Pisces  - Water


Signs found under these Cardinal, Fixed or Common exhibits particular personality traits and this is how the public identify your personality, so you can generally identify if a person either as cardinal, fixed or common sign.

The cardinal signs are those signs found on the equinoctial and solstice points, namely Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn.

Describing you as cardinal signs in general we realize cardinal sign people to be active and are attuned to the physical world, you are also masters of the social world, and you are the ones who win executive or managerial positions. Your unique abilities, naturally earn you such positions because you have the organizing abilities. Cardinals are the leaders of the world and your subconscious mind gives you such instincts which makes you live up to such position, even on very low stations in life you are made leaders or supervisors of men. Yet when you take an action, you cannot carry such duties to conclusion. You can take an action but lack direction and at the same time you take action before you actually have time to think about it especially

Aries which is cardinal fire. The most executive among you is the Capricorn which is the sign ruling the 10th house of social prestige, and coincidentally

Capricorn is the cardinal earth sign who knows well the foundations of the world and the characteristics of organizing things for action.

Libra is the Cardinal –Air sign and are actually the sober type who through participation wins promptings to the top. You know how to deal with people, weighing the pros and cons before taking action. You also have refined natures and gain admiration by that.

Cancer, the Cardinal- Water sign, no doubt are very caring as leaders, and will listen to your subordinate and try to console them all the time but Cancerians are also strict to carry their orders through.

You never take an action without planning accurately before. Fixed sign people are trustworthy and place emphasis on whatever you do. Your consciousness is attuned to the desire or the emotional world.
