The Mutable Signs:

Masters of Transformation

Infuriatingly indecisive or amazingly adaptable? If you are a mutable sign, or if you know and love someone who is, you’ll know that these quicksilver zodiac signs have many facets to their personalities. But what exactly is a mutable sign in astrology, and why do these signs of the zodiac have such special traits?

What are the Mutable Signs in Astrology?

The four mutable signs in astrology are Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces. Gemini is a mutable air sign, Virgo is a mutable earth sign, Sagittarius is a mutable fire sign and Pisces is a mutable water sign.

Notice how each of the mutable signs belongs to a different astrological element. That’s key in understanding how they function, but we’ll come back to that a bit later.

What Does Mutable Mean in Astrology?

The word mutable comes from the Latin mutare, meaning to change – and that’s it in a nutshell really, when it comes to the astrological mutable signs.

The mutable signs are flexible, changeable and adaptable. They respond fluidly to the circumstances around them, able to change either themselves or the situation to suit. This can make the mutable signs sometimes frustratingly hard to pin down, but it’s also their strongest talent and greatest strength – these zodiac signs are a godsend in a crisis, because they don’t panic, they don’t stall and they don’t freeze – they work out what needs to happen and they change in order to find a way through.

Generally speaking, the mutable zodiac signs are also rather restless and constantly on the go. Never satisfied with the status quo, they seek to improve things in some way. They have a good grasp of detail, which is essential if you’re going to make decisions on the fly. The mutable signs instinctively pick up on things other signs may miss, which helps them to stay one step ahead. Because they pick up on emotions as well as physical details, these signs are also empathetic, sympathetic and usually kind to others.

Extremely resourceful and able to think fast and out of the box, mutable signs can make best use of whatever situation they find themselves in and are almost never stuck for a solution.

What is the Significance of the Mutable Signs in Spiritual Astrology?

Spiritual astrology regards the signs of the zodiac, in order, as representing the path of a soul on this earthly plane – a kind of hero’s journey, if you like, from birth to death and the return to the divine.

The mutable signs, along with the cardinal signs and the fixed signs, play a key symbolic role in this path.

The four mutable signs occur in months which we associate with the ending of the four seasons. Gemini occurs at the end of spring in the northern hemisphere, Virgo comes at the end of summer, Sagittarius marks the end of fall and Pisces heralds the end of winter. Mirroring this, the four mutable signs each mark the ending of a phase in the spiritual journey.

In spiritual astrology, the mutable signs are known as the destroyers; sounds scary, but these signs only destroy in order to allow for re-creation. Rather than destroy, think of the phrase ‘transform’ or ‘end’. As the planets pass through each mutable sign, so we transform ourselves according to the lessons we’ve learned that season, bringing about an ending to some parts of our lives which were not serving us well, in order to allow for a fresh start as the cycle begins again with a cardinal sign.

How is Each of the Mutable Signs Different?

Although Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces are all mutable signs, they each belong to a different element, and this means that they all function slightly differently from one another.

Gemini is a mutable air sign and expresses changeability through ideas and communication. Talkative, sociable and interested in everything, Gemini is a highly flexible sign – some would say too flexible, perhaps, as this sign has a reputation for being fickle and a little bit shallow. Geminis are excellent at communication, but their downfall is often their superficiality.

Virgo, on the other hand, is a mutable earth sign, expressing change and transformation in a more practical manner. Unlike Gemini, which is likely to scatter its energies too widely, Virgo zeroes in on the detail, always the detail. Diligent and fastidious, Virgo’s greatest strength is analysis, but perfectionism can be taken to extremes, causing paralysis.

Sagittarius, a mutable fire sign, is a different kettle of fish altogether. It expresses its changeable, transformational nature through high energy adventure. Sagittarius needs challenge, both physical and intellectual, but holds all of us to high ethical standards. Sagittarius’ greatest strength is tolerance, but this most restless sign of the zodiac may struggle to put down roots.

Pisces is a mutable water sign, expressing changeability through emotions. Highly sensitive and often overwhelmed by emotions, Pisces adapts to other people so efficiently that they are at risk of losing their own sense of self-identity. Hugely compassionate and intuitive, this gentle sign needs to guard against gullibility and being too easily led.

Are Mutable Signs Compatible with Cardinal Signs?

There’s much more to astrological compatibility than just Sun signs or which quality those Sun signs possess.

On a very basic level, however, yes, there can be compatibility here. Cardinal signs like to be in charge, but mutable signs are good at adapting and supporting others, so that works. Long-term, however, the cardinal signs may tire of the mutable signs’ indecision or need to talk things over before acting. Likewise, the mutable signs may disapprove of the cardinal signs’ bull-headed behavior.

Are Mutable Signs Compatible with Fixed Signs?

Again, there’s much more to love and compatibility astrology than just this, but on a basic level, this match has promise.

Fixed signs can be very rigid in their opinions, but mutable signs don’t mind this and are flexible enough to adapt to their opinionated partner. Meanwhile, mutable signs can help to bring some flexibility into the fixed signs’ life, showing them the value of spontaneity and risk. Trouble may arise if the fixed sign tries to control the mutable sign, as mutable signs are highly independent – but overall, this combination can work well.

Can You Have Too Much Mutable Quality in Your Astrology Chart?

Just like the astrological elements, it’s ideal if the astrological qualities are also balanced in your natal chart. A rough and ready way to do this is to note down the signs for your Sun, Moon and Ascendant, and also the sign your ruling planet is in.

If any of those are in a mutable sign, you probably have enough of the mutable quality. If they’re not, you may lack some mutable energy although an astrologer would need to see your full birth chart to be sure.

If you’re lacking in mutable energy, you may struggle to make changes in your life, finding yourself frequently stuck in a rut. To counter this, you’ll need to force yourself to create change, one tiny step at a time, until coping with and adapting to change becomes a positive habit for you.

On the other hand, if you have too much mutable energy, you may find yourself unable to settle on one particular project or task, always wanting to move on and leaving things unfinished. This is a matter of practicing staying power and forcing yourself to complete a task before moving on to the next. It gets easier with practice, honestly!

    I can't describe how excited I was when I found out about this course with my favourite Astrologer Kelli Fox. It was absolutely FASCINATING! I highly recommend it to anyone, especially like me if you love astrology more as a hobby and just want to suck in as much information as you can. I loved all the extra pages of information you can go through that are linked up with Kelli's website when needing a greater understanding. I already can't wait to go back through the course again and finding out how much more I can learn. I hope there will be more courses in future with Kelli. She is the best!Cached

The only issue I have is occasionally on the site itself, some of the links don't seem to connect...like the birth/natal chart...whether through email or the search engine links, or even the ones here on the site. As far as the readings, reports, horoscopes, etc. go....A+ and then some!!!! Love you Kelli!Cached

    Kelli Fox makes Astrology fun and educational. Her honest excitement about sharing her knowledge comes thru with every reading. From the daily and weekly horoscopes thru to the monthly reports she delivers a way of navigating thru even the most troublesome aspects. And the weekly Zoom meetings with her email subscribers midweek, seriously help to plot a course through the upcoming astrological currents.Cached

    Awesome Amazing Beautiful Fantastic! When I found Kelli Fox it was what I needed to know and read about that I am as a Libra. The positive words of Wisdom that was confirmed. I live in the mountains of Blue Ridge Georgia and God really helped me locate this beautiful home - one level with a very long driveway. I read the testimonial of a man called William K and i was not out looking at the stars which I should being alone with the deer turkeys and bears I am cautious about the night time. However this man had a person born November 14th that is my fathers birthday and so I thought i need to write to you. Thank you so much Kelli Fox for being there for me. I cried when I read all that your web site told me about myself. My home is way up in the mountains and it is amazingly God given wisdom that made me buy it for peace and tranquility. Now I am wondering if its time to go to a place closer to the town since it is a two lane road to get to town. I love the drive to town however when ive got to get to the airport it's 2 hours and then I'm late since I start to hesitate (as a Libra) and then I'm late by an hour at times! Thank you. I love all of your website. The time now 4.16 am early morning. I'm always an early riser! Thank you again Kelli Fox. Many blessings to you.Cached

    I live in Georgia I’ve attended yesterday’s zoom about Mars Retrograde, I opened the compass on my phone went outside around 8:45 -9:00 pm eastern time zone, walked down the driveway, it’s a beautiful driveway with and amazing view of the sky, So I walked down my driveway glancing, at my compass, got to the end of the driveway, I was already walking west, Look again at my compass, looked up and bam, there it was. Blinking I thought it was a plane at first, the sky was clear so I was able to see all the other stars very well, but Mars from where its located was by itself, there wasn’t any other stars around it, it had a bit reddish glow to it that’s how I knew it was Mars, one of the best days of my life, you want to know something cool, my son is a Scorpio Nov 14/2005 words can’t express the feeling I had knowing that I was looking at my sons ruler, I am a Taurus May 19/1986 special night for me.Cached
