Mutable signs are so misunderstood but why?
Because they’re adaptable and differ from themselves in different settings. They are able to switch themselves up in a matter of seconds without being fake, they’re too multi-faceted to fit in a set form, but are genuine nevertheless. We understand things - including people - by categorizing them, building a scheme of what something looks and is like. We build connections in our mind: This person is extroverted and social because they interact with others a lot and feel at home in the crowd. This person is introverted because they rather stay with few people and only express themselves openly and freely when surrounded by those they trust and feel at home with. Now with mutable signs, they throw this system over. One day you see them extroverted, surrounded by people who are barely acquainted with them and having the time of their life, talking about nonsense and only ever joking around, the other they’re engaged in a serious, intellectual conversation with someone, completely still, for hours. It’s confusing. With mutable signs, you often don’t really know where you stand, or where they stand for that matter, until you really got to know them and that obviously takes a while. People like to judge prematurely because it’s a) easy and b) helps them operate/interact in and with the world better. That hinders the proper understanding of the nature of mutable signs, because it’s not fixed. It’s not categorizable. The very nature of mutable signs is to adapt and/or change. Gemini and Pisces are more adaptable, Sagittarius and Virgo more changeable. Virgo constantly strives for improvement and ways to better themselves, which leads to change. Sagittarius yearns for more experiences and knowledge, which also leads to change. Gemini yearns for connections and learning through as many people as possible. They have to be adaptable for that. Pisces has already lived through every sign and wants to love universally and connect. They can’t do that when they’re fixed. Mutable signs don’t fit into a set form because that’s not in their nature, and it’s confusing if you try to categorize and get to know people. With mutable signs, you just have to accept that they won’t stay the same, ever, that they will be different people in a matter of seconds without being fake. That’s scary because you just have to let them be and that doesn’t allow you to set up methods to protect yourself specifically curated for them, and it’s a lot of work because you can’t just spend a week with them and have a basic understanding of them. That’s not to say you will know the other signs properly within a week, of course not, but it’s easier to get to know a set “foundation” to build your knowledge on for them. With mutable signs, that foundation would be the knowledge of them being able to be drastically different without faking anything, but that’s a bit hard to come up with.
