Fire, Earth, Air and Water are the building blocks of the material world.
There is one Mutable sign in each of these elements.

The Mutable Signs

Mutable signs work by making changes, cooperating, compromising, being flexible, and adapting to the conditions and experiences they meet. They can rightfully be considered inconsistent, variable, erratic ... even unpredictable, unstable, and capricious.

There is one Mutable sign for each of the elements. Mutable signs are one component in what astrologers call "The Quadruplicities" ... or "The Qualities" ... or "The Modalities" ... a way of grouping the Zodiac signs according to the strategies they use to pursue their ambitions based on their different -- and often conflicting -- values.

The Mutable Signs are Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces. Gemini is Mutable Air, Virgo is Mutable Earth, Sagittarius is Mutable Fire, and Pisces is Mutable Water.



Gemini is the Mutable Air sign.

Gemini works to achieve flexibility in:

  • The intellectual realm, the world of ideas -- by gathering information from various sources and experimenting with their creative possibilities

Air signs are concerned with issues of intellect, perspective, communication, feedback, and social interaction.



Virgo is the Mutable Earth sign.

Virgo works to achieve flexibility in:

  • The physical realm -- by working with the details of physical life, the efficient use of available resources, practical application of skills and education,

Earth signs are concerned with issues of practical achievement, the use of financial and material resources, the things needed to sustain physical life.

Pisces is the Mutable Water sign.

Pisces works to achieve flexibility in:

  • The emotional realm -- the world of intuition, feelings, psychic vision, and mystical insights

Water signs are concerned with issues of emotions, inner feelings, subjective values, intuition, psychic sensitivities.

The Elements in Astrology

Elements and Gender in Astrology -- Different Ways of Engaging the World ---> The Triplicities ---> To an astrologer, Fire, Earth, Air, and Water are called the Elements or Triplicities - as each contains three signs of the Zodiac. Traditionally, members of the same triplicity tend to get along well with one another. (There are also the Qualities ... or the Quadruplicities: Cardinal, Fixed, and Mutable ...

* Earth, Wind and Fire ... and Water -- Compatibility in the Zodiac ---> An Introduction ---> Every astrologer hears the question: What signs am I compatible with? The person asking wants a list of three or four answers they can count on ... often to solve problems much larger than just a cluster of incompatible associates.
