Water Sign

There are 4 elements that rule the 12 Zodiac signs: fire, water, earth, and air

The term water sign is an Astrology term that refers to the series of Zodiac signs ruled by the element of water:

These sign rule the 4th, 8th, and 12th houses and are all negative polarities (or more yin instead of yang).

The element of water represents emotions, intuitive talents, and a strong creative gift. You will see a lot of water signs in artistic fields or in fields where intuition is required, and many times even both. If you need a shoulder to lean on, an ear with an intuitive gift for advice, or just someone to help you feel better after a long day, call on your favorite water sign.

While signs ruled by other elements (air, earth, and fire) are very fast-paced and future-focused, water signs are not. People born under water signs move a bit slower than many of the other signs, as they take their time to reflect and feel their way through life.

Water signs are the emotional connections of our society, which is why they are represented by the element water in the first place. They act upon their common drive, which is their relationships, nurturing things, and intuition in all aspects of their lives. In their vulnerability and complexities, Cancer is sensitive, Scorpio is deep, and Pisces is spiritual.
