Astro fans everywhere are well aware that every one of the 12 zodiac signs has an element. It’s either fire, air, earth, or water. Furthermore, these signs are divided into qualities/modalities. They give the perfect description of each sign’s vibe and personality. The four mutable zodiac signs are Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces.
In case you’re wondering, Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius are fixed signs. While Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn are cardinal signs.
What Are the Mutable Signs?
So exactly what are the mutable signs and what do they tell you? The mutable signs are the philosophers and thinkers of the zodiac. These signs mark the completion of a cycle or the end of a season. It depends upon the zodiac.
For instance, the Gemini season starts when spring comes to an end. It’s the same thing for Virgo and summer, Sagittarius and Fall, and Pisces and winter. The following mutable signs are aware of the change that’s coming. Thus, they make sure everyone prepares for it before it happens.
By the end of this article you’ll have answers to the following questions:
- What is a mutable zodiac sign?
- Why are the mutable signs of the zodiac so unique?

What Are Mutable Signs Like?
Mutable zodiac signs are the least biased among the signs. These deep thinkers don’t make impulsive judgments and wait until factual information is presented to them. And even if their worst suspicions are confirmed, they’re least likely to blow their top. Of course, their opinion is important. But not enough to wreak havoc among those who made a mistake.
Another great thing about the mutable zodiac signs is their amazing ability to follow through with everything they do. They don’t procrastinate, and when they start something, you can be sure they will finish the task at hand.
It’s super easy to get along with them. And even if they’re busy with their work, they never make you feel that you are less important. Yes, they do have their bad days as well. But it’s not very often and only because they have a lot of things going on.
Mutable Zodiac Signs and Their Ruling Planets
Gemini and Virgo are ruled by the planet Mercury, while Sagittarius and Pisces, by the planet Jupiter. Mercury is responsible for news, information, and travel. Jupiter on the other hand also affects global travel, philosophy, and higher education.
There’s an obvious overlap but Jupiter is macro, while Mercury is micro. Co-dependence best describes their relationship. Because one will not survive without the other. These two planets work together to greatly expand a person’s knowledge and wisdom.
Mutable Zodiac Signs: A Breakdown
To get a clearer understanding of how each of these mutable zodiac signs rolls, let’s go ahead and break it down!
GEMINI: THE MAGNIFICENT CHARMER
The sun enters Gemini during the last few weeks of the spring season. For them, it’s all about being flexible and open to other ideas other than their own. Gemini is a mutable air sign, which means they’re highly adaptable.
They have this incredible talent as brilliant communicators. When they talk, everybody listens. But at the same time, like a sponge, it absorbs new information thrown their way quickly and thoroughly. They’re also known as a Jack of All Trades. They tend to know something about everything.
VIRGO: YOUR EYE IN THE SKY
Not only are Virgos highly creative, but they also make the perfect scientists and investigators as well. They don’t pretend to know all the answers. But you can be sure they will stop at nothing to find them. It’s towards the end of summer when the sun finally enters Virgo.
Virgo is an earth sign, so it’s only natural that they make solid plans for their future. They plan their days ahead to make them as productive as possible. This mutable sign is more focused on arriving at a solution to a problem. Not so much on HOW they’re going to do that. They don’t mind doing the dirty work, having sleepless nights, or failing a zillion times. Virgos succeed, no matter what.
SAGITTARIUS: THE WANDERING FEET
When you try observing Sagittarius it seems like someone’s always lit their butt on fire. They can’t keep still for one minute and are always on the lookout for a new adventure, a new destination..
Yes, this zodiac is a mutable sign. A mutable fire sign, that is. Their element screams independence and self-expression. Just when you thought they’re too exhausted from a certain project, or need a vacation from a vacation- they’re actually on to the next! Thus, they’re mostly responsible for all the fun and excitement when autumn season ends and holiday festivities begin.
PISCES: THE DREAMER
When the sun enters Pisces, the astrological year is about to end. Each phase of the zodiac comes with so much learning. Now it’s time to apply everything you’ve learned. Prove you can try and make this world a better place! Pisces love and thrive on their intuitive and spiritual mutability. They are the artists, the dreamers, the free spirits.
This sign has an imagination so vivid, that when they actually go and translate them into reality- it’s mind-blowing! Think about the animators of Pixar and Disney. Or the special effects team of blockbuster films like The Avengers or The X-Men. Also, they have this emphatic nature that allows them to put themselves in other people’s situations. Thus, making them great listeners and advisers.
How Well Mutable Signs Get Along
You might be wondering, do mutable signs actually get along? As a matter of fact, they do! However, the signs are either square or on the opposite of either one on the zodiac wheel. So they need to play their cards well and stick on their turf so they avoid power struggles.
But when these signs get along, they can do magic! They can do everything that they desire with perfect timing and great success. All four signs love conversations that are intellectually stimulating. Thus, not only do they never run out of things to talk about. They conduct the best, most exciting, and productive brainstorming sessions- ever! However, it takes some effort for these four to get together. If they were less flaky it’s a bit easier.
The reason why it’s easier for mutable signs to get along is because of their amazing ability to adapt. As long as they stay away from heated arguments, they’ll be fine. Being verbally gifted and eloquent is a two-edged sword. You can paint the most beautiful poetry, or throw harsh words that cut like a knife!
Finding the Perfect Balance
Although being a mutable sign has a lot of perks, it naturally comes with its downside. First of all, don’t eat too much if you know you’re going to spit them out. Having a full plate all the time can be quite exhausting. So only take on projects and goals that are doable for a certain period of time. Know your limits and don’t be too fond of multitasking. Why? Because your desire to accomplish everything will lead you into doing nothing!
It’s also a great idea to have some fixed and cardinal signs in your life. Fixed signs keep you grounded. They’re direct and have no intention of sugar-coating hard facts. These signs tell you what you want to hear, not what you want to hear all the time. On the other hand, cardinal signs give you the ‘boost’ you need when you’re starting to get off track. In short, they help you finish what you’ve started!
That basically sums up everything. But one thing to keep in mind is that nobody’s perfect. All these signs have their own flaws. Mutable signs, Pisces specifically, have the tendency to become very unpredictable and moody. Also, mutable signs can get sidetracked. Being too absorbed in what’s happening around them that they tend to lose focus. Losing sight of the important things in the process.
It’s therefore crucial for mutable signs to focus on their growth before even trying to help others. You cannot pour from an empty cup. Overall, mutable signs are like the great chameleon. Always changing. Always exciting.
