Importance of the fixed modality

The fixed, cardinal and mutable modes make up the quadruplicities in astrology. They describe three different ways of applying one’s energy when it comes to taking action or reacting to what life throws at you. The signs are split evenly into the fixed, cardinal, and mutable modes, and each has a different way of taking action. For the fixed mode, this is to continue what has already been started.

All of us have some fixed energy. If it weren’t for fixed energy, brilliant and innovative ideas, new habits, and even new loves in our life would wither on the vine with no one tending to it or seeing it through. With no endurance or continued effort, nothing would ever be finished. In the same way that all of the planets are represented in us, but just at varying levels of significance, we all come with at least a bit of fixed mode, it is just more notable for some more than others.

Fixed traits in action in the signs

For the fixed signs, Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius, this desire to see through what has been started spurs them to be reliable, determined, and goal-oriented in their lives. But, since the three fixed signs are also shaped by an element and a ruling planet, this drive to hold their ground is expressed in a different way in each one.

The fixed mode in Taurus

Taurus’ fixed modality combines with the earth element and is shaped by the sign’s ruling planet, Venus. The earth element is focused, committed, and stable. Venus inspires us to find beauty wherever we can find it and to prioritize our relationships. For Taurus, fixed mode influences them to want to stick with what is familiar. With a sense of inner calm, Taurus wants to find stability and cling tightly to it. They aren’t excited about new changes or adventures. Taurus finds joy in steady relationships and stable life.

The fixed mode in Leo

Leo’s fixed modality mixes with the fire element and is inspired by Leo’s ruling planet, the Sun. Fire is dynamic and energizing and the Sun encourages them to find their inner-power and shine it brightly. For Leo, the fixed energy urges them to continuously express what is inside to the world. With incredible determination and passion, Leo puts themselves out there on the stage of life for all to see and persists no matter how their gifts are received.

The fixed mode in Scorpio

Scorpio’s fixed modality combines with the water element and energy from the sign’s ruling planet, Pluto. Water is emotionally deep and perceptive. Pluto transforms through death and rebirth. For Scorpio, the fixed modality urges them to seek the honest truth, no matter how ugly it is. With uncompromising persistence, Scorpio seeks hidden truths that need to be pulled from the darkness into the light. They are committed to feeling the full range of emotions that these uncovered truths bring their way.

The fixed mode in Aquarius

Aquarius’ fixed mode mixes with the air element and is shaped by Aquarius’ ruling planet, Uranus. Air is logical and clever. Uranus asks us to follow our own path. For Aquarius, the fixed mode inspires them to always be true to themselves, no matter what the consequences. With intelligence, endurance, and maturity Aquarius uses their skills of reasoning to determine their own set of ideals, and then holds strongly to them, regardless of what anyone else thinks.
