Astrology Signs

In Wicca, the zodiac signs are classified according to elements, quality, gender, and planetary rulership. They also are associated with different attributes and personalities.

 

Elements

  • Earth
    • The signs that correspond with this element are Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn. The people that fall into these three categories are stubborn, practical, and stable. They are said to have more concern about the mundane details of the world and what exists for real. They also tend to be in conflict with non-tangible ideas.
  • Water
    • The signs that correspond with the water element are Scorpio, Pisces, and Cancer. The personalities that are of these signs can be strong in their emotions though they struggle to express the feelings in words.
  • Fire
    • The signs are Leo, Aries, and Sagittarius. The element of fire represents action, spirit, and vitality. People with fire signs warm whatever they are around with their high spirit, but sometimes they can be insensitive to others.
  • Air
    • The signs that are of the air are Gemini, Aquarius, and Libra. The people that fall under these signs are good at rationalizing things and dealing with ideas, but at times they have difficulties with emotions.

 

The Fixed Mode

The fixed signs are Scorpio, Leo, Aquarius, and Taurus. These are the signs that represent the beginning of the seasons. The people that fall into the fixed mode can be obstinate and unconcerned with other people's opinions. They are good at continuing things despite their lack of good capabilities to start their stuff. The fixed mode signs are mostly involved in concentrating energy.

 

The Cardinal Mode

The signs of Cardinal mode are Aries, Libra, Capricorn, and Cancer. People who fall under the Cardinal signs are good at beginning things, but at times they have trouble finishing the things they started. The Cardinal signs stand for the four quarters of the zodiac, the beginning of the seasons, the equinoxes, and solstice points.

 

The Mutable Mode

The Mutable signs are also known as common signs, and these signs are Pisces, Sagittarius, Virgo, and Gemini. Those that are of the mutable signs have great concern about other people. They are fragile.

 

Gender

The signs are classified into masculine and feminine categories.

The masculine signs are Libra, Gemini, Aries, Leo, Sagittarius, and Aquarius. The feminine ones are Pisces, Cancer, Scorpio, Virgo, Taurus, and Capricorn. The signs are classified as so, but in the current times, there is a difficulty in doing so because not everyone views gender the similar way. It is necessary to take into consideration the sex of a sign when performing a ritual that deals with womanhood or manhood.

 

Planets

Each of the 12 signs is ruled by or affiliated with a planet. The planet and the sign it rules share some traits although there are some qualities in which they differ. The planets are more swarming forces than the signs, because planets are mobile, but the signs are like attributes or personality traits.
