For each of the four Cardinal signs, the primary means of expressing an element is outward, into the world. Through initiating action to gain response, the Cardinal signs derive a sense of value from their interaction and relationship with others. Their focus is to initiate, to create, and to make things happen.

Key Words:


Create. Take action. Initiate relationship

Lack of Cardinal:


Difficulty with forcefulness, enterprise, leadership.
