Water is the Cancer’s paired element and you actually have the most fundamental connection with water of any of the zodiac signs. Being an element of emotions, you often experience strong emotions in waves. Often living on the rocky seas of emotion, you have gained a deep understanding for your inner workings. As a result, you can naturally pick up the rocky waters of others. Sharpening your connection with water will allow your empathetic skills to grow, but be aware that you can become “lost at sea” and suffer from emotional instability.
