That they are inclined to be stubborn goes without saying. They often stick to their decisions longer than others deem appropriate, which is why a good portion of flexibility does them good; a person with a horoscope with an excess of fixed qualities does not stop doing things once he or she has started, even if this is long overdue.
The mutable quality is responsible for distributing and utilizing those things initiated by the cardinal qualities and implemented by the fixed ones. Its function is the transition, the mediation between known and new territories. It is in this way that the flexible qualities relate to their environment. Staying with the image of the company, here we might imagine that marketing specialists, travelling sales people or branch managers fill this function.
These individuals have an exceptional willingness to adapt because the mutable qualities are characterised by the principle of flexibility. These people are willing to make concessions or revise their opinions. A wealth of ideas and intellectual flexibility are among their special strengths. They are exceptional sales people, teachers, service providers and much more.
The danger for them is far more that they may adjust to their environment too much out of a sense of insecurity, thus giving up their own needs and not asserting their own interest sufficiently. Their great flexibility keeps them going but they may never get anywhere because they often have no set direction or clear goal. This becomes apparent through their lack of a settled life, their changing partners and their travel activities.
These people feel best when their freedom of movement is not restricted and they are able to pick up and leave when they wish to start or learn something new. They are talented communicators and mediators and are very familiar with human relationships.
