Weekly Words of Wisdom: W is for WATER Astrological signs are divided into four elements (fire, earth, air and water), and today we’ll talk about the three WATER signs: CANCER, SCORPIO and PISCES.

If your sun sign is in one of the water signs, you are most likely sensitive and intuitive. You are self-reflective and inner-focused, with the potential to be a gifted healer, caretaker of children or animals, and are usually a beloved family member.

Cancer loves home and family. This sign feels everything on a very deep level, and has a great memory for family history. There’s mother energy here – the nurturer – and the ability to be a gifted healer.

Cancer – your life lesson is to learn to let that stuff go. Cancer folks can really cling to childhood memories with a deep emotional attachment there. Learn to accept your tender emotions and tears, notice without judgment, and to co-exist with human and divine.

Scorpio loves deep contemplation and is not afraid of the “dark side” or discussions about death. Scorpios make great detectives and accountants, and have the ability to focus intently on a subject or activity to see things through. Scorpios can be a bit intense with strong non-verbal feelings, and they can be bit secretive as well.

Scorpio – your life lesson is to learn emotional honesty, know that it’s safe to let go, and that a good cry never hurt anyone.

Pisces loves to dream and go deep. Known as the mystic and psychic, this water sign tends to be very secretive. Pisces has a tendency to “check out” from time to time, requiring time-out in order to live in their dream world.

Pisces – Sometimes this world can feel like “too much” for Pisces, and your life lesson is to learn how navigate life without addictions. Establish boundaries and acknowledge your wisdom, while letting go of unconscious fear.

In astrology we use these general characteristics as guidelines to validate and understand who we are. We can also feel more compassion toward others who exhibit these personality traits, simply by knowing they are Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces.
