Each zodiac symbol belongs to an element that defines it among the others, Fire, Water, Air and Earth are as well known as the twelve representatives of the zodiac. Nevertheless, the Cardinal modality is one of the three groups made up of four signs each, called the «quadriplicity» of the zodiac.

Although the concept sounds like «complicity of four», this variable adds another difference that makes it more complex to establish comparisons, similarities or differences in astrological work. The use of the astral chart derives from the representation of twelve sectors divided into equal parts of 30º for a final sum of 360º.

According to astrology, the position in which the sun is will depend to determine the sun sign of the newborn which is commonly called the zodiac sign. The origin of this denomination comes because in ancient times the March equinox belonging to the constellation of Aries was taken as the starting point or 0º for the left-handed start; that is, it rotates counterclockwise.

Nevertheless, today this no longer happens due to a natural phenomenon called the precession of the equinoxes. This manifestation is due to change of direction of the axis of the planet earth every year, that produces the anticipation of the equinoctial points without altering the pre-established order.

In this way, after starting with Aries, the star king continues its course towards Taurus, then continues with Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces until Aries arrives again.and close the astral cycle.

In astrology these three modalities that permeate the zodiac (Cardinals, Fixed and Mutable)They maintain a definitive influence on the way of acting and being of the person born under that sign. The Cardinals are made up of the main signs of each element: Aries (Fire), Cancer (Water), Libra (Air) and Capricorn (Earth).

One of the characteristics of the Cardinal modality signs is that they coincide with the beginning of each climatic season. For this reason, Aries is the beginning of spring in the northern hemisphere and autumn in the southern hemisphere.; Y Cancer does the same with summer to the north and winter to the south.

The leading sign of the element Air, Libra, three months later repeats autumn on the planet but this time in the northern hemisphere and spring in the southern hemisphere. For his part, the last of the Cardinal signs, Capricorn is the starting point of winter in the north and summer in the south..

Due to this particular fact, Cardinal signs are characterized by being leaders in promoting changes in their lives and seeing opportunities where other signs see difficulties.

They are persons intelligent, restless and the dynamo that generates the necessary energy for any situation that arises. This source of unchanneled power can cause impatience to the point of diminishing your ability to create. Of all the modalities, the Cardinal dominates the astral field and makes them the natural leaders of the zodiac.
