When we look at the natal chart, we’re looking at the planets’ positions from one point of view: our place of birth on the planet. We’re evaluating the astrological forecast from that one location, which is similar to a weather forecast.
From the perspective of your moment of birth, Locational Astrology projects the planetary bodies onto a map, revealing where they are ‘angular.’ Your birthplace will be represented on the map with a cross surrounded by a circle signifying ‘earth,’ followed by a slew of other lines throughout the world.
Each planet has four lines, which represent the four 90-degree angles within a circle. The four cardinal points in astrology are represented by this axis, which resonates with the symbolism of Aries (self), Libra (other), Cancer (home), and Capricorn (career). They are located at 270, 90, 180, and 360 degrees on the natal chart, or 9 p.m., 3 p.m., 6 p.m., and 12 p.m. on a clock face, respectively.
The lines include the labels ‘Ac’ or Ascendant, ‘Dc’ or Descendant, ‘Mc’, the Midheaven, and ‘Ic’, the Imum Coeli, as well as the labels ‘Ac’ or Ascendant,’Dc’ or Descendant, ‘Mc’, the Midheaven, and ‘Ic’, the Imum Coeli.
These lines are similar to four points in an astrological chart, representing self (Ascendant around 9pm), other (Descendant at 3pm), where we’re coming from (Ilum Coli around 6pm), and where we’re going to (Ilum Coli around 6pm) (Midheavenaround the midnight position).

Is it true that cardinal signs have a lot of power?
While cardinal signs can be surprisingly sensitive and even grumpy, this is because to their proclivity for expressing their feelings, which is a sign of emotional intelligence.
Motivated, sympathetic, and self-aware people are regarded as emotionally intelligent. Rather than suppressing their emotions, they recognize them and use them to influence their thinking and behaviors. It is also easier for them to achieve their objectives as a result of this.
Cardinal signs are gregarious and extroverted since they are powerful leaders in many areas of life. They are the first to try something new, to start trends, and to entice others to join in the fun.
It becomes clear after getting to know them that they are people-oriented and assertive. This indicates that individuals work best when they are surrounded by people in order to complete tasks.
What is the distinction between fixed and cardinal signs?
There are four different elements in the 12 zodiac signs: fire, earth, air, and water. When you break each ingredient down, you’re left with three distinct categories.
Each zodiac sign has its own set of strengths, limitations, and operating methods. Because each potential zodiac sign occurs at a different period of the year and represents a distinct characteristic of that season, this is the case.
Spring, summer, autumn, and winter are the four seasons of the Earth’s yearly cycle. We can see that the year begins (in the Northern Hemisphere) with fiery Aries season and ends with delicate Pisces season by aligning the zodiac signs in the correct order. When we consider these seasonal shifts, we notice something remarkable and lovely: the zodiac signs likewise reflect the changing seasons throughout the year.
The many stages in the year’s seasonal cycle are referred to as zodiac sign qualities (sometimes known as modalities or triplicities). Seasons begin with the zodiac signs of the cardinal signs. Each season is fully embodied by fixed zodiac signs. The mutable zodiac signs bring one season to a close and usher us into the next.
Beyond this concept, there are many fascinating components to the zodiac sign attributes, as a modality that also provides insight into how someone interacts with individuals and groups.
Keep in mind that astrology isn’t simply for predicting life events, though it excels at it. It’s about gaining a deeper knowledge of who we are and how we interact.
Do the signs of the zodiac get along?
According to the twins, whereas changeable signs are known to get along well, the same cannot always be true for cardinal signs. Of course, conflict isn’t always inevitable, but because all four of these signs enjoy being in charge, they can certainly butt heads.
“These signs can have power struggles because they are all take-charge and believe things should be done their way,” the twins explain, adding that cardinal signs (or people with cardinal-sign-dominant charts) “tend to be renegades in some ways because they are action-oriented and hate being slowed down by red tape or process.”
“They’d sooner beg for forgiveness than ask for permission,” the twins said of cardinal signs.
What are the four major astrological signs?
If you’re even remotely interested in astrology, you’re probably aware of your Sun sign. That’s your “primary zodiac sign,” the one established by your birthday and the one you tell people when they ask, “What is your sign?” You’re a Leo, a Cancer, or an Aquarius, for example.
You may also be aware that your birth chart contains far more information than your Sun sign. Every planet in the sky has a sign, including the Moon, Mercury, and Saturn, as well as some points (like your Rising sign, determined by which sign was on the horizon when you were born).
The zodiac consists of 12 signs, each of which is broken down differently by astrologers. Fire, water, earth, and air are the four elements that each sign represents. If you’re a Pisces, for example, you can say you’re a water sign, or you can look at your entire birth chart and say that, while your Sun sign is a water sign, you also have a lot of planets in earth signs like Taurus and Virgo.
The signs are also divided into three qualities in astrology: cardinal, fixed, and changeable. These are referred to as modalities. Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn are the four cardinal signs. Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius are fixed signs, whereas Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces are mutable signs. Examine your horoscope for your Sun sign. What is its mode of operation? Examine your entire birth chart. Are there a number of planets in fixed, cardinal, or changeable signs in your horoscope?
Are cardinal signs the kings and queens of the zodiac?
The instigators are Cardinal signs, ready to move on with plans and attract those who can help them. Cardinal signals are leaders who are outgoing as a result of their active engagement with the world. They’re itching to get started on new initiatives, and they’re happiest when they’re in charge.
Who is the earth sign’s leader?
Don’t you think of a tough and authoritative leader when you think about Capricorn? Because they are the rulers of astrology, they emit cardinal energy. Winter has arrived when the sun enters Capricorn, and Capricorn is in charge with the same serious and calculated power that is required to survive the toughest season of all. Capricorn, as an earth sign, leads with logic, reason, and long-term goals in mind. This zodiac sign is quick to devise a strategy and delegate responsibility within their society. It’s up to them to devise a winning strategy.
What exactly is a cardinal?
