The Three Qualities
Each sign of the zodiac is assigned to one
of three qualities.
The Twelve Sectors
Different areas of your life and personality
are influenced by the planets.
Qualities of the Fixed Signs:
Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius
The role of the Fixed signs is to maintain,
uphold and defend positions, responsibilities, goals or desires
in everyday situations. These signs are the least welcoming
of change. Their role in the zodiac is to preserve tradition.
Fixed signs are not easily distracted--they keep their hands
on the steering wheel and their eyes on the road. They can
be a bit stubborn or stuck in a rut, a down side of their
ability to stay the course. Yet these signs are valued for
their consistent, loyal, devoted, reliable and patient natures.
Yes, they do hold strong opinions and at times they can be
inflexible, but there are some areas in life that those traits
are needed and even encouraged. How each sign expresses the
Fixed Quality depends on their own characteristics:
Fixed Quality, Earth Element: The Earth element of a Taurus'
Fixed nature makes them focus on the accumulation of material
possessions, and moves Taurus' to guard what they earn or
accumulate. Since Tauruses have sensuous natures, they enjoy
the tactile quality of tangible objects. They care for other
people's property in the same responsible manner as their
own, and often wind up in positions of professional guardianship.
The insurance business is a perfect industry for Taurus, because
of its focus on security. Tauruses are oriented to the here-and-now
and need to see tangible fruits of their labors. In short,
some signs don't mind being more famous than rich, but not
Taurus. Being a practical earth element, they want to see
Fixed quality, Fire element: The Fire element of Leo's
Fixed nature makes this sign powerfully self-expressive and
many Leos are highly artistic and creative. This sign will
latch on to an idea and wrestle it to the ground, not stopping
until it is expressed in a manner which Leo believes is best.
The lion is known as "King of the Jungle," and Leo will assert
his or her masterful authority at all times--whether that
authority be real or imagined. Their efforts are buttressed
by one overwhelmingly attractive quality--self confidence.
Few signs are as a good at psyching out their competitors
and uncovering the secret to their success!
Fixed quality, Water element: Due to the Water element
of this sign, Scorpio's role is to strengthen emotions and
feelings--theirs and others--and make them permanent. Since
their goal is to get others to reach a final agreement, commit
to a strategy, and move forward, it is easy to see why they
do so well in sales, negotiations, and interpersonal relationships.
Scorpio's need for control can make them jealous or possessive.
This can be a charming or not-so-charming trait, depending
on whether or not they go off the deep end with it. ("There
was a little girl with a little curl right in the middle of
her forehead. When she was good, she was very, very good and
when she was bad she was horrid." Very Scorpio, male or female.)
Scorpios work in purposeful ways. You can always sense a wellspring
of power simmering just under the surface. Want to change
a Scorpio's mind? Good luck! Their Fixed nature can be maddening,
yet their steadfast loyalty to those they love is also one
of their endearing qualities. Their intense, smoldering passion
(Water sign) makes them mesmerizing.
Fixed quality, Air element: Aquarius's foundation in Air--a
communicative element--mixed with their Fixed quality drives
this sign to make their friendships permanent. Few signs take
friendship as seriously as Aquarius, and they tend to keep,
defend, and care for their friends over a lifetime. Another
role of Aquarius is to create and found groups and organizations,
for their natural domain is over the 11th sector. Being a
radical sign ruling the future, some Astrology Zone readers
may be surprised to hear Aquarius is a Fixed sign--one would
expect them perhaps be Mutable. However, Aquarius' Fixed nature
is demonstrated in their scientific and orderly minds and
their insistence on maintaining strict procedures to insure
they obtain the most accurate results. Aquarius does forge
into the future, but not in the rash, impulsive way an Aries
might. Rather, Aquarius insists on total objectivity--you
won't find any emotionality or preconceived ideas. Their Fixed
quality makes them dogged in their pursuit of discovery--and
it is a rare Aquarian that does not eventually hit pay dirt
with that kind of intent! After all, Aquarius is the sign
of the inventor!
