In astrology, zodiac houses are three qualities that help to further define a sign’s traits. These qualities–Fixed, Cardinal, and Mutable–also have an affect on how the signs act when they are in each of the twelve astrological houses.
The cardinal signs come at the beginning of each season. These are the go-getters of the zodiac signs. However, the other zodiac signs can take on this trait and more when they are in the cardinal houses. The cardinal zodiac houses are the first, fourth, seventh, and tenth houses. The first house is concerned with a person’s self-esteem, the fourth house is about a person’s home life, the seventh house has to do with one-on-one relationships, and the tenth house concern’s a person’s reputation. During these houses, the signs are likely to begin projects or changes that will make these parts of their lives better.
The fixed zodiac houses occur around the middle of the seasons. The fixed quality helps these signs to stay determined enough to stay focused on their goals. The four fixed houses are the second, fifth, eighth, and eleventh houses. The second house is about a person’s possessions, the fifth house is all about pleasure, the eighth house is about a sign’s shared possessions, and the eleventh house is about how the signs interact with large groups of people. During this time, a sign is likely to focus on their goals that involve these things. They will work hard, but they may not finish their goals.
The mutable signs fall at the end of each season. The mutable quality helps the signs to complete their goals. The mutable houses are the third, sixth, ninth, and twelfth houses. The third house is all about communication, the sixth house is a person’s job and other work that they do, the ninth house is all about learning new things, and the twelfth house deals with a person’s conscious and subconscious thoughts. While in these houses, the signs are more likely to complete goals involving these four ideas. They are likely to understand themselves better and feel complete at the end of these houses. The signs are not likely to get new ideas for plans during this time.
Each of the qualities has an important effect on the signs when they are in each of the zodiac houses. They both affect the sign’s motivational levels as well as some of their personality traits during this time. There is no way to doubt that these qualities play an important part in the houses.
