HOROSCOPE

Water is the paired element of your sign and as a Cancer, you actually have the most fundamental connection with water of all the zodiac signs. While emotions seem to terrorize others as an untamed, unpredictable body of water, you have the ability to ride waves of emotion. You witness even the slightest ripple of distress in others and go to great lengths to tend to their needs. The positive emotional qualities of water will take you far in life, as long as you stay vigilant in guarding yourself from moodiness.
