The Elements of Astrology - The Water Signs
By Heidi Richards
Cancer - Caring - (June 22 - July 22) - Cancer is ruled by the Moon and its symbol is the crab. It is a Water sign, and as such is connected to the world of emotion and the instincts. People react in a positive way to Cancer's sensitive intuitive nature. If it's a love interest you are after, you instinctively know how to get the attention you desire. Because you are a good friend and confidante, people have a tendency to confess their sins to you.
When it comes to flirting, you prefer a more demure or reserved approach to one that is overt. You are a caring, nurturing lover and enjoy cuddling and hand-holding. You may seduce the object of your desire with a home-cooked meal of fare fit for a king or queen. You tend to fuss over the object of your affections, a clear indication that you are interested in pursuing the relationship further. Pampering and affection are your signatures in romance.
You are also very protective of your love interests (all relationships for that matter) and will go to the ends of the earth to make those in your life feel safe and secure. Family is important to you and you enjoy sharing family traditions as well as starting those of your own creation. For you, home is where the heart is. A Cancer in full courtship mode will invite their love interest to meet the family. You make those you love feel like the center of the universe.
Scorpio - (October 24 - November 21) - Scorpio is ruled by the planet Mars and is symbolized by the scorpion. As a Water sign, it is connected with the world of emotions. You can be intently focused, even absorbed on the object of your desire. You are sensed by others as sultry, emotional and even "dangerous".
Your passionate nature can smolder for days, weeks and even months and then it all of a sudden erupts into a volcanic fire that is almost impossible to contain.
You have a sexy animal magnetism that can subtly seduce the object of your desires. There is a mesmerizing way about you; when you look into the eyes of your love, it is as though you are looking deep into their soul.
You are a born detective and will go to almost any lengths to find out about someone to whom you have an interest in. You are intense and emotionally perceptive. When hurt, you don't mend easily and don't forgive quickly (if ever).
You know how to channel your energy and power into exploring your lover's sexuality. You are intuitive and inquisitive; there are no secrets you won't discover. However, your nature is such that you may keep a few secrets of your own.
Ever resourceful and self-confident, you know what's best for you and think you know what's best for others. Sex with a Scorpio is anything but subtle, it is full of energy, daring and can even involve some risk taking. You are looking for a fearless lover, one willing to create a romance that will unleash your passions.
Pisces - (February 22 - March 21) - Pisces is ruled by the planet Neptune. Its symbol is two fish bound together. Pisces is a water sign, emotional and compassionate. Pisces have an air of mystery and love a good secret.
You love affairs of the heart and could become involved in a love tryst or steamy affair. You can be shy or coy, and your sensitive side and air of vulnerability can and will often work to your advantage to attract the object of your desires. You love romance and fantasy and sometimes have a hard time separating the two.
You are able to share your deepest feelings with the one you love and often connect on a soul level. It is said the eyes are the window to the soul and you often find yourself flirting with your eyes.
Pisces men are often seen as gallant (opening doors, and offering a hand) and both sexes can be self-sacrificing, often putting the needs of their lover ahead of their own. You tend to daydream and often have your head in the clouds. You would rather go with the flow than ruffle feathers. You love to serve your lover and shower him or her with delightful fantasies.
You have a spiritual nature, and are very creative. When it comes to romance, you can be unpredictable and truly enjoy the game of love, although you will pursue the object of your affection with slow, careful intent.
