HOROSCOPE

Water is your paired element and your sign actually has the most fundamental connection with water of all the zodiac signs. As though hit by strong waves, you sometimes are overcome by your emotions. While this may be an uncomfortable phenomenon for others, you ride the “waves” of emotion with deep understanding. It is this comfortability that allows you to sense so clearly when others are having emotional experiences. As you continue to embrace these positive qualities of water, your understanding will continue to grow. Be aware of becoming too immersed in your emotions, as the negative qualities of water bring bout feelings of moodiness.
