Mutable Sign Traits: Just go with the flow!

Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces are all referred to as the mutable Zodiac signs. Those four signs seem pretty different, which they are, but one important thing they have in common is the mutable modality and their approach to taking action and adapting to life’s changes. But what are these mutable mode characteristics that these different signs share?

Traits of the mutable signs, Gemini, Sagittarius, Virgo, and Pisces are an acceptance of change and the ability to adapt. They are flexible, easy-going, and curious. Mutable signs enjoy trying a variety of experiences in life and can blend in with different people and situations like a chameleon.

Read on to see how the mutable mode can influence you and your life!

Importance of the mutable modality

The mutable, fixed, and cardinal modes constitute the quadruplicities in astrology and describe three different ways a person takes action or reacts to their environment. The signs are evenly split into the mutable, fixed, and cardinal modes, and each of the modalities has a different approach to responding to whatever life throws at them. For the mutable mode, this is to embrace changing circumstances.

Everyone has some mutable energy in them. If it weren’t for mutable energy, our jobs, interests, friendships, and intimate relationships would stay the same indefinitely. Without the acceptance of change, we would never adapt or grow. Instead, we would become stale and obsolete in a changing environment. In the same way that each planet is represented in every person, just at different strengths, everybody has, at least, a bit of mutable mode. Some just come with more than others, as shown in their birth chart.

Mutable traits in action in the signs

For the mutable signs, Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces, this willingness to shift their focus inspires them to be open-minded, inclusive of new ideas, diplomatic, resourceful, and to go with the flow in their lives. However, considering the four signs are also affected by an element and a ruling planet, this desire for change is expressed differently in each of the mutable signs.

The mutable mode in Gemini

Gemini’s mutable modality combines with the air element and is influenced by the sign’s ruling planet, Mercury. Air loves is quite intellectual and logical. Mercury inspires us to gather information and communicate with others. For Gemini, mutable mode urges them to gather information from others and to have a constantly changing perception based on the data they collect. With restless curiosity, Gemini wants to meet different people to talk to and learn as many different things as they can, constantly changing their understanding of the world.

The mutable mode in Virgo

Virgo’s mutable modality mixes with the earth element and is also shaped by Mercury, Virgo’s ruling planet. The earth element is rooted, committed, and focused. Mercury adds a thirst for new knowledge. For Virgo, the mutable energy encourages them to analyze how something could improve and change it for the better. Virgo’s role is to alter things to make them better. Through a strong work ethic and determination, Virgo learns skills that can change themselves or their surroundings to be closer to, what they have deemed to be, their images of perfection.

The mutable mode in Sagittarius

Sagittarius’ mutable modality combines with the fire element and is inspired by the sign’s ruling planet, Jupiter. Fire is a passionate and intense rush of energy. Jupiter asks us to have faith in life and to feel gratitude. For Sagittarius, the mutable modality urges them to constantly change their understanding of the meaning of life. With enthusiasm and an adventurous spirit, Sagittarius seeks out different ways to see the world. Independent and even a touch impulsive, they crave change and a wide variety of experiences.

The mutable mode in Pisces

Pisces’ mutable mode mixes with the water element and is shaped by Pisces’ ruling planet, Neptune. Water is the element of intense feelings and compassion for others. Neptune inspires us to look behind the curtain in everyday life to catch a glimpse of the higher power. For Pisces, the mutable mode influences them to shift between the earthly world and the realm of the divine. Visionary and empathetic, Pisces wants to experience spiritual connectivity, oneness with all, and to move back and forth between life on our planet and the larger stage of the Universe.
