If you are not pregnant, and not on your period, then it probably means you are ovulating. The cervix opens up when you are ovulating, and it becomes 'slimier' to help aid the travel of the sperm. If you are pregnant, then it just means your are pregnant. If you are not pregnant, and not ovulating, then it means you are about to have your period.

If you are asking about the uterine cervix, it is common for the cervix to be very firm throughout most of the menstrual cycle. The cervix only becomes very soft and opens up when you are nearing ovulation, to make it easier for sperm to get through it to the uterus. So really it's hard most of the time and only softer a few days out of every month.
