The modes are the adverb, the how in which we express the elements

Memorizing Signs

It's easier to memorize the elements and modes and the signs they go in, then to memorize each sign's influence.

Each of the four Fixed signs is orientated toward maintaining a sense of security and inner stability.  They derive a sense of value from within themselves.  They are primarily motivated to pull outer-world experience inward, for processing, assimilating and adapting to their own inner sense of self, to make it their own before re-engaging with the world.  Because of this sense of pulling in, to maintain and control experience, the Fixed signs tend to accentuate an element.  Through experience, the Fixed signs build a solid sense of self and will attempt to shape their surroundings according to their internal visions.

Key Words:


Build/Maintain. Control.

Lack of Fixed:


Difficulty with commitment, holding the course.
