The element Water in astrology



Cancer astrology sign glyph Scorpio astrology sign glyph Pisces astrology sign glyph






The element Waterórepresented in astrology by the signs Cancer, Scorpio, and Piscesósymbolizes many things: emotion, feeling, empathy, relatedness, maternity, nurturance, compassion, vulnerability, change, the unconscious, the soul, the past, the sea, and the non-rational, subjective and personal realms. It is the most yin of the four elements, and in our patriarchal culture, the most difficult to apprehend. Cancer signifies the ocean with its restless, tossing waves of emotion; Scorpio rules the still and stagnant water of marshes that must be reclaimed and transmuted; and Pisces rules clear streams and rivers, which when free from turmoil reflect that which is above.

No (or only outer) planets in Water

If you have no planets in Water signs (except perhaps for the outer, generational planets Neptune and Pluto) you may have difficulty understanding or penetrating the deeper meanings of things. Your emotions may not be easily engaged, and your intuitive skills not readily available. You may have difficulty forming close relationships, and may feel smothered or threatened by the strong emotional demands of others. You recover quickly from emotional setbacks, however, and depression is rarely a problem, but need to guard against becoming callous, cold, detached or unfeeling. Some people with no water in their chart even feel unlovable.

Famous people with no planets or their ascendant in Water are/were Muhammad Ali, Ann-Margaret, Lance Armstrong, Barbara Bach, Joan Baez, Ludwig Van Beethoven (misanthrope, loved unattainable women), Lucrezia Borgia, Georges Braque, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Bennett Cerf, Graham Chapman, Chevy Chase, Maurice Chevalier, Connie Chung, Bill Clinton, Gary Cooper, Ted Danson, Angela Davis, Catherine Deneuve, Alan Dershowitz, Rene Descartes, Neil Diamond, Marlene Dietrich, Faye Dunaway, Dwight D.
