There are three Water signs of the zodiac. They are Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces. Water signs are all emotional, sensitive, and intuitive. They are the caretakers and artists in astrology. The Water signs are recognized by their active imaginations, good storytelling ability, and ready shoulders to cry on. They are good listeners and while they can be emotionally needy, they are often insightful and caring of the people they love.

Cancer Astrology Sign

Cancer is the sign of the Mother. Both male and female Cancers are caring, nurturing, and domestic. This does not mean feminine. It simply means that Cancers care for home, family, and ancestry. These are the people who make you put your seatbelt on without question. They love to make sure you are comfortable and well fed. And when they are balanced they are the most encouraging of signs. Sure they worry a lot, but that’s what mothers are good for, right?

In relationships, the best match for Cancer is another Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn, Pisces, or Taurus. While the worst match for Cancer is Aries or Libra.

Scorpio Astrology Sign

Scorpio is the sign of the Detective. Because they are so suspicious of others, Scorpios have an innate radar for people’s motives that can’t be matched. While their sexual reputation may be true to some extent, what they are really looking for is emotional honesty. Through sex, Scorpios look for that honesty – a place where they hope it exists. Darker characteristics like jealousy, revenge, and bitterness, emerge when they find that true emotional honesty is hard to come by.

In relationships, the best match for Scorpio is another Scorpio, Capricorn, Pisces, Taurus, Cancer, or Virgo. While the worst match for Scorpio is Leo and Aquarius.

Pisces Astrology Sign

Pisces is the sign of the Artist. Deeply emotional, compassionate, and filled with conflict, Pisces is often torn between caring and simply isolating in their own martyrdom. It is very difficult to be constantly tapped into other people’s feelings. It leaves Pisces feeling as if they don’t have a distinct set of emotions of their own. When they do connect with their own deep emotional body they make amazing artists, healers, and spiritual beings.

Water Signs of the Zodiac in Relationships

In relationships, the best match for Pisces is another Pisces, Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, or Capricorn. While the worst match for Pisces is Gemini and Sagittarius.

What a Water sign most deeply needs is to feel emotionally validated. If you are a Water sign, make sure you spend time with people who accept your deep feelings. Nothing wounds a Water sign more than when they are labeled as crazy for their feelings. Water signs make the most insightful friends and lovers. They are non-linear and need to be appreciated for their sensitivity and imagination.

If you are connected to a Water sign be sure to accept their emotional nature. Reassure them. Water signs sense the problems and tensions in their environment and they need to know that they will be okay. Mostly, Water signs need depth in their interactions. They will not easily settle for superficial answers and they prefer being real over anything shallow or unfeeling.
