HOROSCOPE

Water is the paired element of your sign, and in fact, you have a more fundamental connection with water than any other zodiac sign. As though overcome by strong waves, you often experience emotions very deeply. From these experiences you gain a valuable understanding, that you then use to read the changing waves that effect others. These positive qualities of water are one of your greatest strengths. Be careful to avoid becoming fully submerged in the emotional qualities of water, as you run the risk of moodiness and emotional instability.
