What Are The Cardinal Signs And What Do They Have In Common?
Two years ago we purchased a sweet home, that needed a little work. After the closing; my husband flew down to meet with the contractor and create a plan for the small remodel. I stayed in Alaska with the kids. I felt very lucky and confident, everything would be taken care of, nothing would be forgotten. My husband is a cardinal sign. He is dependable, loves a challenge, takes control and gets things done.
If you are not familiar with astrology modalities, you may wonder, what is a cardinal sign?
Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn all fall into the category of cardinal signs, also known as reacting signs and initiator signs. This astrological group wants to win, push forward and start new projects. Do you know anyone like this?

You may ask, are there any potential challenges that Aries, Libra, Capricorn and Cancer face?
If you are a reactive sign, do a self check and see where you fall in the list below. If any of these qualities trigger a reaction; take a pause. Look at yourself and discover where you can invite more ease into your life.
Do you think you are:
- Self centered
- Have patterns of moving to something new; before the last project was completed

Fear is often the catalyst for the shadow side to come forward. Enjoy the pause, stop your reaction. Maybe you will discover what is causing your need to control and be inflexible?
The easiest way to find light qualities in every sign, is simply having faith in yourself and a higher power. Trust you are capable of living an abundant, loving and joyful life.
