Cardinal Signs: Who Are They, And What Does This Modality Actually Mean?

In Astrology, Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn are classed as Cardinal signs. The word ‘Cardinal’ derives from Latin and means ‘important’. These four astrology signs are regarded as pivotal because they each mark the Sun entering a new zodiac element, thus triggering a new season. Astrologer Susan Taylor reveals the true meaning of this phenomenon and how it impacts your personality.

Cardinal signs are ambitious action takers who are very self-motivated.

What does is mean to be a Cardinal sign?

Cardinal signs represent new beginnings, leadership and turning over a new leaf, which is why they all introduce new seasons (spring, summer, fall, and winter). Each of these signs belongs to a different zodiac element, but how are the signs influenced by this powerful quality? The cardinal signs are the signs that open the seasons, they initiate change and get things done. A person with many planets in cardinal signs will need to undertake and launch initiatives.

What 'cardinal' means for Aries: The Fire sign that introduces spring equinox

Aries is at the forefront of the zodiac, which is why its natives make excellent leaders in all walks of life. Their forceful energy can be intimidating, but it guarantees brilliant results. It means that when they are faced with problems, they power through and carve out a new path for themselves.

How about Cancer? The first Water sign makes the way for summer solstice

When the sun enters the Cancer constellation, it marks the beginning of the season of achievement and vision. This sign is associated with sentimentality and wellbeing due to the water element. The cardinal quality blesses these natives with even deeper compassion and consideration. It also motivates them to persevere despite challenges.

And Libra? The introductory Air sign and initiator of fall equinox

In Libra, the Cardinal quality transpires through their stubbornness. Although this sign is known for being hesitant, when these natives do make up their minds, nothing can change them. This quality blesses them with resilience and ensures that Libra people can fight their corner and defend their ideas.

What about Capricorn? The first Earth sign that commences winter solstice

This powerful quality ensues, traditionally dogged Capricorn natives with the gift of adaptability. Capricorn traditionally sticks to their guns, but this special characteristic means they can see the bigger picture and make better choices. Their adaptability mixed with their analytical talents gives them the edge over other people.


Astrologist Susan Taylor

Astrologist Susan Taylor's insights:

Cardinal signs influence us in different ways to our sun signs. Their impact reaches every area of our life, including relationships and careers. Natives of this quality always choose to fight for their relationships and want to ensure that their love lives blossom. When it comes to their careers, they want to reach the top and love taking on tough tasks more than anyone else.


What are the 3 main qualities of Cardinal signs?

1) They are hard workers

Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn are all very hardworking people who never slack off. Their enthusiasm and determination drive them through and give them the ability to overcome the toughest of obstacles. These natives are always the last to leave the office.

2) Influential energy

They are full of powerful and motivational characteristics that help them get people on side. Their positive attitudes ensure that they are very well liked and appreciated by their peers. These folks often have a way with words and are fantastic orators, meaning they always get their own way.

3) They’re very intelligent

The Cardinal quality makes people more analytical and often more logical than their peers. They excel in tasks that require intense concentration and focus. This also ties into the fact that they love winning too. As initiators, they feel that they need to set the bar high.

Do Cardinal signs get along with each in love and friendship? — They're mostly incompatible

Natives of these signs are pioneers with equally strong personalities. When it comes to their zodiac compatibility, they are likely to butt heads in a relationship and spend their time arguing. Their need to be in the forefront of the action reinforces the idea that they are controlling, inflexible and challenging.

These signs are generally more well suited to mutable signs or fixed signs.
