HOROSCOPE

Water is your paired element and as a Cancer, you actually have the most fundamental connection with the element. You are not unfamiliar with the waves of emotion that sometimes overtake you. With experience, you have learned to ride these waves and have amassed the skills to help others do the same. As you embrace the positive qualities of water you will continue to grow as a sympathetic individual. Be aware that becoming too submerged in the qualities of water create the risk of becoming moody or overly sensitive.
