Zodiac modality refers to the specific point/time in a season in which one of the 12 Zodiac signs are expressed. A Zodiac sign can either be expressed at the beginning of a season (which are the cardinal signs), the middle/peak of a season (which are the fixed signs), or the end/start of a season (which are the mutable signs). All together with the qualities of a modality + the quali- ties of an element, you get the basic characteristics of a zodiac sign. Ex.) Cardinal + Fire = Aries The Cardinals These signs indicate the beginning of a season, meaning they have a strong urge to start things. They're known to be leaders, independent, self-motivat- ed, and ambitious; though, they have a hard time seeing them through. The Beginning of Spring- Aries In the fire element, this is where Aries gets their energetic, loud, and impul- sive personality. They're ambitious, ag- gressive, and like to live on instinct.
