Signs in each triangle (allies) tend to think in a similar way, wich leads them to better understanding and compassion. However, they by no means express the same temperament, or work the same way. One member of the group may be fearful and another brave, one trickfull and other naive. But the way they think, in most cases makes them find common ground and cooperate well with each other.
