In astrology, a mutable sign is one that is changeable, adaptable or can be adjusted. Zodiac signs are categorized in a number of ways including by quality.
Zodiac qualities are fixed, cardinal and mutable. Mutable signs occur toward the end of a season and symbolize the changes associated with the close of the season.
Mutable Signs and Associations
Each mutable sign is associated with a different element representing how the change comes about.
- Sagittarius End of Autumn – fire – active change through seeking new knowledge and experiences.
- Pisces End of Winter – water – change through absorbing information from others taking emotion into account.
- Gemini End of Spring – air change through collecting and sharing new ideas.
- Virgo End of Summer – earth change through cleansing, purification, and healing.
All mutable signs are restless, active and proactive and good in a crisis. They may also tend to thrive on drama and chaos.
They are resourceful and use new information well, easily adapting to any new situation. But they often do not have a very firm sense of their own identity.
