Astrology 101: Water Signs


Water is reflective and deep. It can be destructive or go with the flow, powerful or peaceful. Water signs are emotional, intuitive, introspective and sensitive. They are emotionally intelligent and feel things so deeply that anything from a puppy commercial to a random act of kindness can pull on their heartstrings.

Cancer (June 21 to July 22)

Protective. Empathic. Emotional. Warm.

Astrological Symbol: Crab

Modality: Cardinal Water that Initiates Emotional Safety

Ruler: Moon (Emotions and Reflective)

Tarot Card: The Chariot


Ruled by the Moon, Cancers are deeply affected by the Moon’s cycles. Cancers put a lot of effort into creating the ultimate safe haven in whatever environment they find themselves in. Like the Chariot in tarot, the crab needs a protective space away from judgment and often finds that at home. Cancers aren’t very patient especially when it comes to love and because they are sensitive they will get anxious in places or situations that give off a bad vibe.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)

Resourceful. Passionate. Secretive. Transformative.

Astrological Symbol: Scorpion

Modality: Fixed Water that Embodies Intimacy

Ruler: Pluto (Rebirth and Transformation)

Tarot Card: Death

They are a little intense. Scorpios are intriguing and draw you in their potent energy that’s both mysterious and comforting. Pluto is the Greek god of the Underworld, and like the Death card in tarot, Scorpios understand that there’s a cycle that comes with life, connections and emotions. They welcome the end because with that comes a new beginning.

Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20)

Altruistic. Intuitive. Adaptable. Compassionate.

Astrological Symbol: Fish

Modality: Mutable Water that Transitions Emotionality

Ruler: Neptune (Imagination and Intuition)

Tarot Card: The Moon

Pisces are the ultra creative and dreamy, and this speaks to their ruler, Neptune, the planet of illusion and inspiration. They often find themselves thinking about the good times, warm memories and maybe even fairytales as a form of escapism. Pisces tend to overthink and can get caught up in thinking about a situation that didn’t end in their favor.
