Water of Different Types and Salinity

When you hear an astrologer say of Pisces, Scorpio or Cancer -- "Well, being a water sign, you can adapt?" What does that mean?

A chief phrase: "WATER SIGN" tells the subject or the astrologer that you process information and life and stimulation and relationships a certain way.

You could say: "Oh, its the way Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces process information. And people in the know, or think they are in the know, understand what is meant when this is said...but still....what does it mean?

Water transmits the idea of emotion and psychism. The human being is mostly water, so the nature of this designation is easy for ALL people to understand. However, those who are Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces truly do operate at a separate level from Air, Fire and Earth. Think of Emotion. Think of Security. Think of Relationships. When you conjure up a picture in your head of someone who seems a little off center, smiling, or moping, and talking about the feelings and politics of a situation, that is probably a Water sign. Moody, ecstatic, giddy, depressed -- these things can pass over the countenance of a Water sign, like clouds passing over head as you lie on a beach and listen to the ocean breezes. They can be irritated deeply and know why. Angered slightly and not know why. Predict an event and scare you to death. Disagree with a crowd and tell secrets of people they have not met. Mostly they are hard to figure. And most often, hard to figure for themselves. You can go on and on, but we won't.

The Great Mission

At this point, it might be instructive to allude to a point, that will be common to all articles. You see, Twelve people go out on a secret mission in the woods. They want to go to an old mine and see if they can find a treasure there. But, if they can't find the treasure, they will just have lunch at the mine, where there is a little lake and a waterfall. Swim after lunch and go home.

So How Do Cancer, Pisces and Scorpio, as Water Signs Fit Into The Mission?

Cancer, Pisces and Scorpio—water elements: The Water signs possess the virtue of caring about subterranean emotional issues and internal inexpressible currents. This does not mean they are wiser than others but are generally more tuned in to different channels at once than many are. They are good listeners. Since they are interested in insight and the subconscious, they tend to use "hunches" more. They can get emotional, and get motivated by impulses that are not obvious. Many times you don't know why they can seduce you, or suddenly make you ill at ease. If they want to beguile you they usually can, whether its Cancer's suasions and plans. Scorpio's intense stare into your soul, or Pisces swim around the rivulets of your heart.

Dodgeball? Good catchers, not so good throwers. Water signs have a tendency to judge couples, groups, whole nations, but with a wistful "way it is" feeling. Like, "It's hard being as right as I am, but don't worry, I could change my feelings tomorrow." Cancer can lovingly kick you in your pants as they tidy up your life and give you their spare room. Scorpio is not capricious and silly, and thus give you their best insights possible. Pisces knows virtually everything, but does not know they know it. Their watery eyes don't mean they are not sharp. Their watery eyes tell you that they have been in places you haven't, and they are still with you.

What About The Mission?

Early in the plan, Cancer was scheming who should bring what. Who should not be asked to make sandwiches, and who should. Before Leo sought the office, and Sagittarius rolled in with hooves pounding and Gemini was making speeches, Cancer was working on the menu, and handing out snacks. Scorpio wouldn't be that noticed, but they are thinking at hyper speed, and classifying the challenges. Capricorn went first to the Scorpio and asked them to think of what no one else would. Scorpio did. Virgo was grabbed by the Scorpio because Scorp needed a pencil and paper. Then there was a big fight halfway to the mine. Cancer jumped in and started settling with intense, but smiling manners. Scorpio did not say a thing, but took Capricorn and Leo aside and whispered in their ears. Capricorn went over to Pisces and asked her to intervene, and completely soften the hard-edged Aries. She did. Water signs make things work while others think things are broken, water signs know people and relationships are the real problems. The treasure was first rubbed together by the Cancer, the Pisces enjoyed the glow. The Scorpio moved over to the Sagittarius and picked the guard. Life works when all signs work together. Water, Earth, Air and Fire create orderly states for human conduct.

More Clinical Cancer

Cancer is acquisitive, worried and fretful. They worry not about themselves as much as their projects. And they want to gather things for their family. The grabby Crabby does so because their loved ones are always in need. They have big hearts, but sometimes they pump so loudly that the sound overwhelms the sentiment. Don't confront Cancer, persuade them so that they don't think persuasion is happening. They are true. They won't mess with you lightly.

More Clinical Scorpio

There are so many stories about Scorpio, that you should not over anticipate dealing with them. Like a fast gun whose reputation hurts more than it helps. Just let the quiet, intense Scorpio be and do their thing. Don't insist that they have negative or war like tendencies. Just listen to them and see their utter sincerity

More Clinical Pisces

Pisces sees everything at once. But sometimes it gets confused. Unlike Aquarius or Capricorn, they are not trying to prove a point, or demonstrate their profound insight. They are so much inside their insight, that they are weaving images and trying to comprehend the whole of the picture. Sometimes this can be depressing, saddening or enriching and inspirational. If they don't lose their patience, they are fine. They have the souls to carry the weight and feel the deep electrical current humming away in the netherworld. Pisces can be gentle and sometimes confusing. For those who like a tighter fix on things, Pisces can be a little nondescript. However, they are all the souls wrapped into one. This makes them at least worth a friendship, and maybe more.

A Little Water Sprayed in the Air To Improve Ambient Air Quality

Think of the "flow of psychic and subconscious water" this way. Cancer formulates shape and canals, offering a challenge to keep water's power effective and initiatory. Like a channel that guarantees a crop, the Cancer moves with productivity in mind. The Scorpio relegates watery power to high effect and supplies powerful towering showers and imaginative work so that diversity can reign and circulating fluids go all parts. Pisces knows ahead what the effect will be, and charmingly floats in places that others can not. Pisces can explain the tiniest little swirling bay in the quietest spring, and then be tossed and turned with the finality of the plan's efulgence. Water signs give significance and meaning while others are more rudimentary. All the signs work together to make life rich. Christofer French is the Founder of
