The Qualities of the Mutable Signs:
Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces
The Mutable signs' prepare for change
into the next season. This makes the people of this group
highly adaptable, flexible and communicative. Throw a curve
to a Mutable sign and they can turn on a dime, coming up with
solutions faster than you can bat an eye. Mutable signs are
restless and embrace change. They are the most resourceful
of all the signs, and thus, they make much from little. They
are highly detail-oriented, but should take care not to get
so wound up in tiny particulars that they lose sight of the
Mutable quality, Air element: Gemini's need for stimulation
can not be overstated. Highly intellectual, Gemini needs news
and information like oxygen. Being an Air sign, Gemini enjoys
the exchange of ideas with others--this is no loner. The sound
of a phone's dial tone is as comforting to Gemini as the sound
of a mama's heartbeat to a baby. One Gemini friend has confessed
that her fax machine going off sounds like the love call between
two mating whales, a sound that thrills her because it means
news is on the way (we will be sure to get my friend professional
help soon). Seriously, being an adaptable Mutable sign, Gemini's
mind is always going at the speed of light. They can put various
pieces of information together in a multitude of ways, and
this makes them quite good at figuring things out, be they
instructions to the VCR, the facts of a murder case, or the
intricacies of the Congressional budget. Gemini can change
their position as quickly as they assimilate new information,
remaining at all times objective. Gemini's downfall? Their
adeptness at handling several things at once can lead them
to assume too much responsibility. At that point they can
become scattered or begin to procrastinate. If they stay focused,
they can accomplish more in a day than most of us do in a
Mutable quality, Earth element: Virgo is more practical
than Gemini and just as intelligent. This sign seeks to devote
its substantial communicative talents to concrete goals. Virgo
is less likely than Gemini to become scattered by trying to
do too many things, and yet more likely than Gemini to become
bogged down in the details. Virgo's fastidiousness and precision
is unmatched by any other sign. They polish their work until
it shines, for Virgo's overwhelming desire is to feel productive.
Don't tell a Virgo to relax and chill out, for most members
of this sign have not quite mastered that ability. They feel
badly if they waste time. Being an Earth sign, their powers
of organization are amazing and it's this skill which gets
Virgo tangible results they can measure, compare, assess and
perfect (a Virgo word if there ever was one). But Virgo isn't
rigid--far from it. Virgo's Mutability allows for a willing
flexibility and razor-sharp course corrections mid-way, an
asset Virgo keeps hidden up their laundered and starched white
Mutable quality, Fire element: Sagittarius expresses its
hefty intellect in the realms of philosophy and spirituality.
People of this group also enjoy delving into the differences
and similarities of various cultures. Sagittarius' Fire nature
craves adventure and likes to feel a sense of exploration
in the projects he takes on. Whereas Gemini focuses on the
daily details of current events, Sagittarius focuses on the
underlying moral or ethical implications of issues, past or
present. Like all Mutable signs, Sadge is curious, but it's
pro-active Fire element makes Sadge the sign most likely to
explore and debate hypothetical situations (communication
being the dominant quality of a Mutable sign). For a fun time,
they listen to National Public Radio and watch Meet the Press.
Keeping up with this high octane Mutable/Fire sign is hard,
but well worth the effort.
Mutable quality, Water element: Pisces use their Mutable
nature to explore and adjust to the feelings (Water's domain)
of others around them. Since Mutable signs are communicative,
Pisces takes the concerns of those around them seriously and
will always offer information, sympathy, advice--whatever
is appropriate to the situation. Pisces' ability to adapt
is so strong that he almost literally becomes the person he
is trying to help and he often does not see the borders of
where he stops and the other person begins. This can be hard
on Pisces, for long after the other person has settled whatever
has troubled them, Pisces' strong intellect continues to chew
on the ramifications and various issues involved. They need
closure, so if you ask a Pisces for advice, be sure to let
him know later what action you took and the results you experienced.
If you don't, your Pisces will be in a perpetual state of
anxiety over your condition. One last word: show appreciation
to your Pisces. Taking too big an advantage of Pisces' good
nature is a cosmic no-no.
