"Cardinality" Can Be Understood as a Special Quality That Four of You Wear But Looks Different on Each of You!

Let us try a way of Defining this trait. Cardinal is "Red" and forthright and forward and take charge, or takes the style of the Initiator, or does not need to be pushed, or is already leading at the beginning, or has already had the first Idea, or will be unashamed at interrupting.

But Cardinality, in order to be understood; like a colorful uniform, must be donned like an official identifying beautiful designed garment.

And this article will be divided into FOUR Sections. Let's give the First Name/Last Name Appellation:

If you are an Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn you are Also a CARDINAL. But what does your Cardinality Mean for You? How does it contribute to your Self- Consciousness? These Triplicities serve you by adding an extra level of awareness in the way you think about your Individuality. We will cover Aries, then Cancer, then Libra and finally Capricorn. One might say that each sign benefits by adding a taste, flavor or Quality that fills your sense of Specialness.

Two Articles covering the “Fixed” Triplicity and the “Mutable” Triplicity will be written for the other signs. (See the Table).

Every 120 Degrees, One of the Three Triplicities Is Assigned to a Sun Sign


Aries Cardinal

Aries is full of Energy and bombast in general. They are famous for big smiles, movement, lots of sparkling morning time, springtime brightness and always having a certain kind of electricity crackling from their core.

But how does the Cardinal Triplicity contribute to the Ram? How does their Cardinality contribute to their array of talents?

Chiefly --- in their ability to follow through. A Ram loves to leap, but each Ram must FINISH. Talk to yourself or any other Aries who will be honest with you. It is in the days, weeks, months that new ideas get tested. People who don’t like the “newness” of an idea will attack or cast doubt, “and rain on your parade”. Let this add to your ability to be professional and muster the help you need to bring your ideas to a maturation.

Think this Cardinality into your Tool Box. Let your “follow through” be an attribute that you are known for. That way you will not be accused of being a “Good Starter, but not a Finisher”.

Cancer Cardinal

Cancer is complicated. You know that about yourself. There is the Moonchild that goes through mood changes like the phases of the Moon. There is the “Crab on the Beach”; operating from a sense of family, watching over its loved ones. Cancers have big hearts and they can get picky as they proceed through their day. “Watch out for the tide! Watch out for the waves. Get back in our nest. Protect yourself.” With all this there is the occasional emotional breakdown, from which they easily recover.

After thinking about all of these challenges how does your Cardinality play in your life? What makes a Cancer a success? What can be remarkable about them? They are Relentless! I know a Cancer who is a tireless over worker. But she just says: “That’s the way it is!” That can be bad for your health, but that is just the way it is. As she says. Of course, balance is needed, but when you observe their professional relentlessness, it is not a wonder that all the parts of their lives are in play.

Libra Cardinal

Libras are famous for being the “only Inanimate Sign”. They are neither humanoid nor animal. The Divine inserted this symbolistic turn into the Realm of Human Development. They are there to tell the world and themselves that things need to be balanced and beautiful and “all peaceful”. Libras are usually attractive and pleasant and polite and well-mannered. But guess what? The world is in turmoil.

Libras are famous for being classy. But they are not famous for being happy. They are most always in a state of consternation! Why? Because they think their personal goal is to be perfectly balanced. The world is not, but it NEEDS what Libra stands for. Usually they do a good job of being on the outside what they wish to represent. But the Cardinality that they need is “Inner Peace”.

The Soul that lives under this challenge MUST learn this lesson. They are not alive to be perfect. They are alive to allow Inner Peace to grow inside them. The Biblical Idea of Grace is that is freely offered. Even though the STRUGGLE for balance and high standards is always with them, they must lift their conscious mind up above the “hubbub” of being a Libra.

You Will See That a Triplicity Affects a Sun Sign Uniquely

The Uniqueness Can Be Thought of as a First and Last Name.


Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn



Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius



Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces

Capricorn Cardinal

Capricorn is famous among the rest of us for being organized, smart, high achieving, critical and able to laugh at the rest of us. They are famous critical successes. So, what do they need in the realm of Cardinality?

Have you ever heard of the animal that represents Capricorn? The common creature is the GOAT. But way back in Ancient Astrology (and you can still see the artistic renderings); their lower bodies had a serpentine kind of monstrous look. Let us skip the renderings and go for the big meaning. This “goat with a funny lower body” RESIDES in the highest cliffs, but its lower body tells you that it had its origin, many eons ago, in the depths of the deep. They are not only smart and successful; they are deeply wise. At a multiple level, they put it all together!

So, what do they need in their Cardinality? HUMANITY! Because of this “Conundrum of Type”, there is an obvious area that most all Capricorns can work on Humanity. (Kindness, Sweetness, Gentility, Warmth, Charm). Once they make this a project, they will see that the “Milk of Human Kindness” could be developed in all the parts of their lives!
