Weak, or Lack of, Mutable Qualities

Weak, or Lack of, Mutable Qualities

Before reading on, note these compensations for a lack of mutable quality in the chart. Compensations do not necessarily make up for an extreme deficiency, unless they are very strong or very numerous compensations. Compensations for weak (or lack of) mutable signs include:

  • Mercury in a mutable sign (particularly Gemini or Virgo)
  • focal Mercury (conjunct an angle, at the end of a t-square or at the handle of a "bucket" configuration)
  • Mercury in or ruling a mutable (cadent) house
  • Mercury conjunct Sun
  • Mercury conjunct Moon
  • Mercury conjunct Jupiter
  • Mercury conjunct Neptune
  • Predominance of air or water signs
  • Splash pattern

Lack of (or Weak) Mutable Quality

These people usually know what they want. Frequently unwilling to compromise, they may insist that other people be adaptable and accommodate them. Because they have difficulty bending with circumstances and making personal changes, they often attempt to force change in their external circumstances, sometimes in dramatic ways.
