When Emotions Rule
We all have different ways of expressing our emotions.
Sometimes we don’t know why we feel the way we do. Nor is it always easy to
understand why some people react one way to something and others have a totally
One way to understand how each zodiac sign expresses their
emotions is to understand the qualities, also called modalities, of each sign.
These qualities are cardinal, fixed, and mutable. Each modality consists of
four zodiac signs that represent the four elements of Fire, Earth, Air, and Water.
Each of the four elements are represented by three zodiac signs:
Fire signs: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
Earth signs: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn
Air signs: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
Water signs: Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces
Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn
These signs act out their emotions and can initiate expression
with a fiery swiftness. They love to be in control of their environment.
Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius
These signs feel their emotions deeply, may hide them well, and can sustain them indefinitely. They tend to try to control their own emotions and reactions.
Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces
These signs tend to have highly changeable emotions and can
be quite adaptable in their expression. They are the most flexible in their
A Mixed Zodiac Bag
When you read your sun, moon, and rising signs, you may find you are a mix of qualities and elements, and that just makes you even more interesting!
The Ram can act as happy as a kid at play when contented, be winsomely charming and considerate when pleased, and inspire others with their warm enthusiasm. But when the Mars-born feels deeply upset, watch out; they can get red-faced mad and lash out as fast as lightning. The horns of the God of War aren’t just for show. They may act on impulse and strike out at the person or thing enraging them. When feeling intensely negative, they can even seem paranoid.
The Bull tends to be sweet and gentle and loves to laugh.
But when under stress, the Venus-born may go into isolated silence. They can be
awfully stubborn. The Bull doesn’t become furious easily, but when they do,
you’ll be lucky if any walls are left standing. When they’re enraged, you can
see the steamy smoke curl up from out of their nostrils as they lower their
horns at you, pawing the ground. Just hope they don’t charge.
When the fine intellect of the Twins mixes with emotion, be ready for a chemical reaction. They might laugh, dance, chatter, and play the night away for pleasure and happiness. But when they are bored, worried, or sad, they can shut down and quietly go into the dreaded mode of over-thinking and end up spiraling into the deepest pain. The changeable nature of the Mercury-ruled can make them appear two-faced, double-minded, or merely indecisive.
The lunar moods of Moon Children can ebb and flow, and seem as changeable as the tide, but a hug can make them feel better almost instantly. The Moonling can be intensely private, but when they feel safe, they can come out of their hard shell so you can see their soft, sentimental, sensitive insides. However, when the Crab grows angry, watch out for their snapping claws. They can instantly become cranky, moody, and yes, downright crabby.
Warm as the sun that rules them, Leos can be joyfully magnetic and generous with goodwill toward others. When Big Cats are infuriated, however, even the gentlest Lion can roar with such ferocity they could unnerve a Tyrannosaurus Rex. They can become overly dramatic when they feel victimized. Because their feelings are so strong, they can lose sight of the big picture and appear very self-absorbed.
When sad or upset, Mercurians need a little time alone to brood
until they can figure out a solution to their troubles. Virgins are cool
analyzers, but they must remember that emotions aren’t logical, and they cannot
usually think their feelings away. Trouble sets in when their normally
nurturing natures turn severely critical. They can pick things, and people,
apart with piercing cruelty.
The charming Venusian is pretty good at pretending
everything is fine, even when they want to weep. While they can suppress their
feelings for a time, eventually their scales will tip out of balance, and they may
abruptly erupt into fierce arguing. That’s when you’ll realize they’ve
memorized your perceived weaknesses and failures and they’ll list them, one by
one, with such mean-spiritedness that it may permanently destroy the love and
trust in your relationship.
The charismatic Mars-Plutonian embodies intensely passionate
feelings. When they love you, it is tangible. You will literally feel their warmth.
They can be exquisitely sensitive, gentle, sweet, and kind. But when the heat
of fiery rage mixes with the Scorpion’s roiling inner seas, brace yourself for
their tidal wave of fury. Hurt and anger can last a long time unless they can
teach themselves to release the pain.
The often blunt and carefree nature of the Archer doesn’t always mean they’re emotionally careless, but they do tend to feel free to say and do as they please. However, when depression gets a stranglehold on them, it can drag them deep into the darkest abyss. Jupiterians need a healthy way to blow off steam, because they can be sorely tempted into substance abuse when they feel knocked down, rationalizing to themselves that they can self-medicate the pain away.
The Saturnian Sea-Goat can seem as chilly and hard as the
rocks they are so good at climbing up in their plan to be the next CEO, but
they can be extremely sensitive, even if they seem to cover it up. They also
know the cold and agonizing depths of pain, pessimism, fear, and depression.
It’s like they live with these feelings just under the surface even on their
best days. Faith and hope, if the Goat will embrace them, are wonderful
antidotes that can help uplift them into the happy success they so crave in
The Saturn-Uranian-born Water Bearer expresses their warmth like a spa of healing waters and their hurt like icy cold showers. They feel everything with the added spark of electric intensity. If they appear cool, it’s because they’ve learned to hide their deepest feelings. When they focus more on others and try to ignore their own emotions, it can be toxic to them. They can delay their reactions until much later, then become overwhelmed by their feelings. It’s when they ice over that things are most dangerous. They can freeze a friend or lover out as though that person no longer exists. Forever.
The sweet Fish has the gift of going with the flow of their flexible feelings as they empathically glide through life’s waters, be they sweet and peaceful, or rough and stormy. Neptunians can be incredibly giving, loving, kind, and mystically sensitive to your every need. Ironically, pain, stress, and sadness can almost drown them when they feel pulled under by the turmoil of anxiety while obsessing over every negative thing in their lives. Faith holds the subtle alchemy that can magically transform their worries and fears into hope and joy.
