Water Sign Compatibility: What Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces Want You to Know
As well as being notoriously sensitive, water sign people are highly emotional, deeply romantic and very changeable (or moody, depending on your point of view!), but their beautiful, kind natures can also hide a mass of insecurities which a lover needs to be aware of.
Although Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces all share these water sign traits, they are of different astrological modes.
Cancer, for example, is a cardinal water sign. Cardinal signs are initiators and leaders, impulsive and dynamic. In Cancer, this mode of action is expressed emotionally, through the heart. You’ll find Cancer to be the mother figure of the zodiac, always first to help anyone in need, first to shed tears for someone but also first to take practical steps to deal with the crisis. Cancer doesn’t sit around and wallow in his or her emotions, but instead takes active charge of them. In a compatibility reading, we might say that Cancer is the toughest of the water signs, but it’s an inner toughness, hidden well behind a soft and vulnerable exterior. Continue reading

Brings Emotional Sensitivity and Intuition

Cancer: June 22 – July 22
Scorpio: October 24 – November 22
Water takes many forms–it can be a liquid, it can be a gas (as in steam), or it can be frozen. It can be gentle as a little babbling brook, or violent as a thundering tidal wave.
Torrents of passion well within water signs and they feel things deeply. However, water signs are always emotionally reserved, no matter what impression they might give on the surface. Still water, it as been said, runs deep, and the mystery about water pertains to this group (especially Scorpio). A water sign will always become quiet or withdrawn when they are trying to sort things out. It will take some time to get to know them well, for they reveal themselves slowly. They realize their intense emotions hold tremendous power, and they tend to handle their feelings carefully. When they fall in love, water signs love with their whole hearts and all their devotion. Their sensitivity makes them highly romantic, even sentimental. Often psychic, water signs read your true intentions simply by reading your gestures and body language and will trust actions more than words (Pisces, particularly, has elevated this talent to high art).

Astrological Characteristics Scorpio
From Sexual Astrology
The SCORPIO Oct. 24 – Nov. 21
Determined, Forceful, Emotional, Intuitive, Powerful, Passionate, Exciting and Magnetic
Jealous, Resentful, Compulsive, Obsessive, Secretive and Obstinate
Intuitive and ever curious, Scorpios are the great investigators of the Zodiac. They want to know everything about everyone. When an answer is needed, a Scorpio will find it for you. Unfortunately Scorpios seem to see only in black and white. They always have their own agenda and never fail to promote it.
Scorpios are the masters of their fate. They know only one way to live: on their own terms. They do not live life but attack it. When life hands them a loss, they do not waste time sulking, but rather continue on their path, sure they will eventually succeed. Scorpios are driven by their intense passions and desires. Often they are seen as imperious. Continue reading
The Challenge of Scorpio: Anger, Power and Transformation
By Ray Grasse and Linda Puffer, 1999
Within the twelve signs of the zodiac, some signs have been considered more desirable than others and too often Scorpio has borne the brunt of some of the most negative associations. One reason for this might be that many of the realities within Scorpio’s domain are associated with deep-seated, powerful psychic energies – so powerful, in fact, that the potential for destructive expression is equal to that of its more constructive expressions. Said another way, the same intensity that redeems Scorpio can just as often be its undoing.
Every sign has its positive and negative aspects, all dependent on whether one expresses those energies with conscious awareness. Unconscious expression leaves room for more negative consequences. If we accept that the psyche of every individual contains all the signs and their corresponding polarities, we Continue reading
Mapping the Psyche
An Introduction to Psychological Astrology
By Clare Martin
- Personal Ruler: Mars
- Transpersonal Ruler: Pluto
- Detriment: Venus
- Fall: Moon
As a fixed water sign, Scorpio is like a very deep, dark, still well. The phrase ‘still water runs deep’ is particularly appropriate here, because although the surface of the water may be calm, there is always a strong sense of the mysterious and unknown and often frightening depths lying below the surface. At the bottom of the well lies rotten, Continue reading
Pluto, Scorpio and the 8th House: The Shadow Side of Human Beings/Emotional Wounding
From The Astrology Place
The 8th house in astrology deals with the aspect of self-confrontation, and often involves a method of self-investigation and deep analysis. It is the place where we hold up a “psychological mirror”. The process of analysis involves the need to ‘dig up the old stuff’. Commonly the 8th house rules over psychology, and those with with Pluto heavily aspected, Scorpio and/or 8th house planets in the natal chart are often masters at drawing out the secrets of others, It usually represents how we handle all the deep stuff.
Many people argue over whether we should go stirring up what is down below, maybe we pushed it down for a reason. Perhaps we should let sleeping dogs lie. However, it is here where life demands that we give an open, honest and psychological approach to the issues involved. Continue reading
The Dark Side of the Scorpio Personality
Notorious for being mysterious, brooding and untrusting (among other things), Scorpios can be very difficult. The way they act doesn’t help them counter their reputation either. Anything negative about a Scorpio comes from something that gives them a great deal of positive character to their emotions. Before you judge, though, you might want to look deeper into them and see where all the “dark” personality came from. Let us count the ways.
1) The Stubborn Scorpio.
You might say Scorpios, first and foremost are stubborn. It is where every other negative side of their persona comes from. It starts their issues and fuels it. There is no way you can make Scorpios bend (they are Continue reading
