The Fixed Signs:

Secrets of Stability According to Astrology

Strong and stable or stuck in the mud with no hope of escape? If you’re a fixed sign, you may be either – or both – of those things at any one time, but one thing’s for sure – you have particular personality traits which can be attributed to the nature of your fixed zodiac sign. Let’s take a closer look at what fixed signs are and what it means to be a fixed zodiac sign.

What are the Fixed Signs in Astrology?

The four fixed signs in astrology are Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius. Taurus is a fixed earth sign, Leo is a fixed fire sign, Scorpio is a fixed water sign and Aquarius is a fixed air sign.

Because each of the four fixed signs belongs to a different astrological element, the way they reveal their fixed quality in astrology is subtly different to each other.

What Does Fixed Mean in Astrology?

The word fixed comes from the Latin figere meaning to fix or to fasten in place. With fixed signs in astrology, the word fixed means exactly what you might intuitively expect it to mean – zodiac signs which are fixed in their nature and way of acting.

The fixed signs are stable and dependable. They have set ways of thinking and behaving and don’t like to change these very much. The upside of the fixed sign personality is that they are extremely reliable and always there – think salt of the earth type of person. On the other hand, this fixed nature can result in a lot of stubbornness and sometimes dogmatic beliefs. There’s a fine line between stable and stuck and the fixed zodiac signs are not always on the right side of that line!

Fixed zodiac signs like to preserve the status quo, so generally speaking they are quite traditional and conservative in their approach to life. They are also good at defending and maintaining situations they like – it’s very hard to tell a fixed sign they’re wrong, because they just won’t see it that way. They maintain a strong focus on where they’re heading and are not easily distracted from their course. Patience and tenacity are key attributes for a fixed sign and these placid individuals can take a lot before reacting.

Loyalty is another key factor in a fixed sign’s makeup, and they are especially strong on preserving relationships through hard work and patient understanding. However, the fixed sign’s dislike of change can very easily backfire upon them, and these are the zodiac signs most likely to find themselves stuck in a rut, bored or unable to manifest positive change.

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

Spiritual or esoteric astrology is a particular branch of astrology which is concerned with the soul’s path back towards the divine cosmos. Some astrologers see the twelve zodiac signs as being symbolically representative of this path, with each sign marking a stage on the journey.

The fixed signs, together with the mutable signs and the cardinal signs, each mark a particular type of journey progress.

If you look at the calendar, you’ll notice that the four fixed signs are active during the middle of each of our four seasons. In the northern hemisphere, Taurus is active in mid-spring, Leo in mid-summer, Scorpio in mid-fall and Aquarius in mid-winter. This situation of being in the middle of a season is symbolic of the fixed sign’s spiritual roles, that of being in the middle of a journey stage, maintaining progress, solidifying learning and shoring up what has been built or accomplished so far.

In spiritual astrology, the fixed signs are the sustainers of the zodiac, responsible for upholding what has gone before. Before a fixed sign becomes active, the previous sign is always a cardinal sign, which has initiated something. It’s the job of the fixed sign to take that new beginning and manifest it into something solid and practical.

How is Each of the Fixed Signs Different?

As mentioned, each of the fixed signs belongs to a different astrological element, and this is how and why they each express their fixed quality in a slightly different manner.

Taurus is a fixed earth sign, expressing stability and consolidation of practical things, such as a person’s own talents and their material possessions. Very materially aware, Taurus is attached to the physical world, which also makes this a highly sensual sign. Unwilling to let go of the material means, Taurus can be extremely stubborn and overly cautious about risk.

Leo on the other hand is a fixed fire sign, and it expresses stability and consolidation through the protection of status and pride. Leo is driven to succeed on a personal level and seeks attention to sustain – that word again – its ego and its sense of self. Generous, warm and creative, Leo can nonetheless also be very dogmatic and demanding.

Scorpio is a fixed water sign. Because water by its nature is fluid and constantly in motion, and the fixed quality is generally thought of as still and immovable, Scorpio is one of the most misunderstood signs of the zodiac. Scorpio expresses stability and consolidation through protection of its own emotions and feelings. Hugely resourceful, because they are able to draw on some of the deepest emotions around, Scorpio is nonetheless quite a vengeful sign – if hurt, they will neither forgive nor forget.

The last fixed sign, Aquarius, is a fixed air sign, so it expresses stability and consolidation via ideas and ideals. Known as the most humanitarian of all zodiac signs, Aquarius keeps faith with lofty ideals and strives towards them. Although considered a revolutionary, wanting to create change, the underlying nature of Aquarius is fixed – it is their fixed sense of purpose which remains unwavering, even as they seek to bring the rest of humanity up to speed.

Are Fixed Signs Compatible with Cardinal Signs?

Astrological compatibility is a highly complex field and depends on much more than just what Sun sign you are and whether that Sun sign is fixed, mutable or cardinal.

However, fundamentally, there can be tension here. Because cardinal signs like to control and fixed signs refuse to budge from their own position, there can be a clash of wills with this combination. However, cardinal signs can be good for fixed signs, helping them to move forwards and get out of a rut. Likewise, fixed signs can help cardinal signs to exhibit more common sense and they can bring stability to a relationship.

Are Fixed Signs Compatible with Mutable Signs?

Again, with the caveat that astrological compatibility is much more complicated than this: yes.

Fixed signs and mutable signs can co-exist well because the mutable sign will allow the fixed sign freedom to stay set in their ways. The fixed sign partner can bring grounding and common sense to the sometimes flighty mutable partner, while the mutable sign can help the fixed sign partner to adapt and change when life gets tough.

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

Ideally, your birth chart will have a good balance of astrological qualities and you’ll have some fixed, some cardinal and some mutable signs active in your makeup.

You can get a quick rough idea of whether you have too much or too little fixed quality by noting the signs for your Ascendant, Sun, Moon and ruling planet. If any of those are in a fixed sign, then you probably have enough of the fixed quality.

If you don’t have very much fixed energy in your natal chart, you may lack a sense of purpose and find it difficult to get stuck into hard work. Creating very small micro-goals each day may help you to achieve more, since you tend to balk at big projects and major milestones.

If on the other hand you have lots of fixed energy in your birth chart, you may be a little bit obsessive or suffer from tunnel vision. Probably opinionated and strong-willed, you would benefit from a wider circle of friends to bring you into contact with other ideas, other cultures and other ways of being.

    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
