Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius are the four fixed signs. The fixed quality endows these signs the ability to continue moving ahead in life, unfazed by the hurdles in their path. They are confident in their abilities and will never leave anything midway. Such is their resolve to achieve their goals that nothing can dither them from completing the task at hand. Unlike some people (read cardinal signs) who often find finishing a task rather frustrating, the fixed signs stay till the end to see the task to its completion, even when work goes on at a snail’s pace.
The bulls have a bad rap for being materialistic. You might be called greedy but this is probably due to your need to measure everything. It is Taurus in who the 5 senses are the most pronounced. You like things to be measured, for example-success can be measured in terms of money earned, which proves your affinity to money. This is perhaps the reason why Taurus is known as one of the most practical signs. You are quite rooted and like to live a stable life, which is keeping up with the earth element assigned to your sign.
Leos are known to be focused individuals, though others might believe that they are focused on themselves and everything that they do is for their own good. However, there is more to the picture than meets the eye. These folks can be just as kind and generous. They like to be the centre of all attention but they also like to be the one who save the world. They are proud of themselves (ever heard of a shy Lion? Lions are always proud) and like to live life on their own terms.
Water is the element attached with Scorpio, making it an emotional sign. They like to keep everything hidden beneath their calm exterior, often experiencing a flurry of emotions but seldom allowing it to come out in the open. Not many people are privy to the internal matters of their lives. They sometimes become entwined in their own emotions, which can lead to their downfall.
Aquarians like to take things one at a time. Being associated with the Air element makes them one of the most intellectual signs of the zodiac. They have imaginative minds and often come up with innovative solutions to problems. They have a firm resolve and will find their way in the most difficult of circumstances. They may come across as detached and aloof. This could be because of the way they perceive things, which happens to be quite different from others.
