What Does Masculine & Feminine Mean In Astrology?

All zodiac signs are either masculine and feminine, also known as gender or duality. It's a way to categorise a sign and break down it's energy, like with modality or triplicity. Masculine signs use outer energy and feminine signs use inner energy. All fire and air signs are masculine and all earth and water signs are feminine. They can also be called positive (odd-numbered) and negative (even-numbered) though there is no bad or good meaning behind the names. Rather they're similar to the positive and negative polarities in an electrical charge. One is giving and the other is receiving energy.

  • Aries
  • Gemini
  • Leo
  • Libra
