There are three types of signs, the cardinal, fixed, and mutable. Generally people don't bob along easily together, when they have the same qualities, perhaps because they are too alike. Those in polarity to you have relationships which are more complementary.The Cardinal signs are driven, by motivation and ideas. However, their follow through skills are often neglected, they want to move on to other challenges.
The Fixed Signs are Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius. This group have great follow through qualities, they are dogged and stable, and will see projects through to completion. Their common characteristics include determination and persistence; they are stable and self-reliant. On a team, Fixed Signs are the people who keep a project going and see it through to the end, but they can also be stubborn and inflexible. The Fixed Houses are Second, Fifth, Eighth and Eleventh; if a chart has a number of Planets in these Houses, the chart is weighted toward Fixed energy.
The Mutable Signs are Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces. These four Signs are the flexible members of the Zodiac, happy to fill an assigned role. Their common characteristics include adaptability and changeability; they are flexible and versatile. On a team, Mutable Signs adapt easily to changing conditions, and they don't have a particular agenda. They can, however, be wishy-washy or inconsistent.

Many people don't realize how important the Elements and Qualities can be in true Astrology. It's the combination of Elements and Qualities that makes the Signs what they are; they combine in twelve distinct ways, one for each Sign.
