Mutable means adaptable. The Mutable Signs, Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces, would rather talk than fight.

They would also rather talk than actually get anything done. Again, please remember, we are talking about the nature of the sign itself, NOT about the qualities of any particular person who has one of these as a Sun-Sign.

Rule of Thumb: Whenever any two Cardinal Signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn) get together, the question is always: "Who's going to LEAD?", because they all want to.

When two Fixed Signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius) get together, the question is always: "Who's going to RULE?", because they all want to. But when two Mutable Signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces) get together, the question is: "Who's going to TAKE RESPONSIBILITY?", because none of them want to.

GEMINI : Keywords are communications, talking, writing, lying, traveling (short trips), doing two things at once. Indeed, Gemini is the only sign that CAN do two things at the same time and get away with it. I have done the horoscopes of over a dozen flight attendants over the years (not a statistical sample, I admit) and all of them have had strong placements in Gemini. One has the Moon and Rising Sign placed here. She has to call people up at night before she goes to sleep to get her daily quota of words (otherwise, she can't sleep!). If you want to locate something fast, get a Gemini to find it for you. They can gather information faster than Yahoo. Experiment: Ask any Gemini Sun-Sign (or anybody with a number of placements here) what they consider to be the greatest invention in the world to be. 9 times out of 10, they will answer: "The telephone". One major drawback: Gemini folks generally have difficulty dealing with feelings.
VIRGO : Keywords are details, work, details, criticism, microscopes-for-eyes, details. Virgo's make great workers and fantastic critics. (Captain Kirk: "Mr. Spock, Isn't it true that when an impulse engine is overloaded, it explodes with a force of 10 megatons?" Spock: "No captain, 10.13756 megatons."). Virgo is called the sign of the virgin because for Virgo, it's always the first time.
SAGITTARIUS : Keywords are, philosophy, jovial, traveling (long trips), PHILOSOPHY, story-telling. Sagittarius Sun-Signs have a channel that goes from from their brains to their mouths. Whatever they think, they say. This is why Sagittarius is the sign of good luck. If it weren't, they would all be murdered before the age of 10 ("You said WHAT to me!!! WHACK!!).

PISCES : Keywords are imagination, dreams, illusions, substance abuse, dancing, other-worldly. Remember Isaac Newton, the Capricorn who said that the Universe runs like a clock? Well who else but a Pisces like Einstein would say that "space warps"? This is the only sign that can be alone in a crowded room. A spacey, far-away look is a dead giveaway that the person has strong placements in Pisces OR has the ruling planet, Neptune, strongly placed. How do you figure out if Neptune, or any other planet is strongly placed?
