In the zodiac, the water sign is one of the most sensitive, affectionate, and emotional signs. When feeling distressed, Water signs and those with a strong focus on the Water element in their charts frequently withdraw to the emotional realm of feelings. Both intuitive and reserved, they absorb both positive and negative energy from those around them. These signs are the most mysterious and challenging of the zodiac.
Their feelings of self-esteem are tightly linked to their state of mind, so they can find it challenging to cope with the unforgiving world that surrounds them. It can be a blessing or a curse that they are so sensitive.
When water signs are masters of their own feelings and connect sincerely and authentically with others, they develop self-confidence. When they are unable to handle the emotional stress, they often shut down because they cannot express their innermost feelings. A Water sign is the most romantic and one of the least inclined to marry for money of all the four elements. In addition, they want to discover a meaning and deeper understanding of life, which leads them to pursue spiritual training and counseling careers.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Cancers Have a Cardinal Quality
Cancer definitely blends in nicely with the other water signs. As they go through life, they can be extremely sensitive as well as emotionally intense. The fact that they can be overly sentimental at times makes it very easy for them to get attached to people. This can be both good and bad, good if the person reciprocates the feelings, bad if they don’t.
Often when they’re dealing with current situations, they will refer to the past and what has happened.
Their home and family life and the life they share with their friends are very important to them.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Scorpios Have a Fixed Quality
The Scorpio is the second zodiac sign associated with water. Their intuitive nature makes them a natural fit for this sign. Scorpios are experts in understanding relationships, motives, and human emotions.
However, it can sometimes be difficult to get close to one of these people, since they require time to trust someone. To have a relationship with or connect with a Scorpio, you have to build a trusting relationship based on truth and honesty.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Pisces Have a Mutable Quality
Pisces is the third sign of the water signs. According to some people, they are one of the most intuitive signs of the zodiac, someone who has a deep understanding of the spiritual realm. Others believe that they spend a lot of their time in the dream world.
They are always searching for the deeper meaning of life.
It’s common for them to distance themselves every once in a while since sometimes life gets quite difficult for them, and they need somewhere to getaway. Their emotional difficulties are usually the result of being disappointed with something in their lives or with their partners.
water signs in love
If someone born under the sign is in love with someone, they will show their feelings through lots of caring and thoughtful emotions. To ensure that their partner’s needs are met, they will do whatever it takes. Since their significant other plays such an important role in their lives, they spend a great deal of time pampering and spoiling them to show their appreciation.
A lot of times, they keep their partner on their toes because they are very in tune with the sensual or sexual world. In terms of sexuality, they seem to have mastered the art.
When they’re in a loving relationship with someone, those relationships are filled with feelings, excitement, and passion.
Occasionally, however, they do reveal flaws. They may be a little bit more introverted than most other signs or lack an aggressive side. In addition, they may feel possessive or jealous or exhibit other characteristics indicative of this behavior. Perhaps they lack confidence in their abilities or skills because they are insecure. In your role as their partner, you would be wise to help instill confidence in them.
Their long-term goal is to build a relationship that lasts, which they excel at, even though they seem to be in another world at times. For them, the best thing about having a relationship is that they can open up and show their romanticism, as well as their sentimental side. However, as we all know, they can also be incredibly over-the-top when they express their feelings.

Water Signs in your Natal Chart
If you have many Water signs in your chart
People born under the water sign or who have a lot of water in their chart are often soft-hearted, which can make them extremely sensitive. They indeed tend to withdraw from their surroundings to protect themselves because they are very empathetic and compassionate towards others who need help. However, they will sometimes be influenced by thoughts arising within themselves or other attempts at deception from someone else which could lead to making relatively poor decisions on behalf of themselves and possibly even those around them depending on what choices they make.
If you have few Water signs in your chart
People with little or no water in their natal chart can be thoughtless in the way they deal with others. Many times, this is because they struggle to “get” what others are feeling since they have trouble using empathy and don’t exactly know how to interpret the feelings of others. They may also have difficulty dealing with their own feelings and may turn them inward instead of outward towards people making it harder for them to understand their own emotions too.
