The Cardinal Signs

Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn


The Cardinal signs are initiators. Additionally, the Cardinal signs are found at main “jumping-off” points in the chart wheel (Ascendant, Midheaven, Descendant, Imum Coeli). These people like to start things; they are ambitious, active, and quick. Cardinal signs start numerous projects, but finishing them is a different ordeal. This is due to the fact that they enjoy starting things much more than completing them.

People with the Cardinal quality won’t slack off. They are full of a drive and vigor that pushes them forward relentlessly. They have enthusiasm and passion for life. Others may think this energy is domineering, for Cardinal people can forget others when they are focused on their own goals. Nevertheless, their active spirit is successful.

Overall, Cardinal signs are bright and they want to win. They enjoy starting things, and despite whether they finish them, they always have many things going on at once. People who think they are too selfish will just have to watch as they rush by!
