When we first learn the nature of the modalities in astrology, we connect to their energies. Signs of the same Modality, also known as Quadruplicities, are 90° apart.
The Cardinal signs take action, fixed stays put and doesn’t want change, mutable is flexible and can move around obstacles.
We associate fixed as having a natural resistance to change. We’ve been taught their resistance can also manifest into a stubborn nature.
The fixed glyphs are used symbolically in the Bible as the four horsemen of the apocalypse.
