Water Sun Signs
By Inge Lohse
Cancer ~ Scorpio ~ Pisces
Pisces is represented by two fishes, one swimming upstream and the other swims downstream, thus confirming the depth of undercurrents and the intense duality of emotions in people born under this sign.
The Pisces temperament varies from being strongly optimistic to acutely pessimistic. Their awareness of the subtle connections of human interactions gives them an air of aloofness.
Pisces are very adaptable, artistic, creative, compassionate, fair minded, idealistic and incurable romantics. They accept people for who they are, not for what they can do.
Pisceans are compelled to maintain their individuality, and they must follow that quiet, whispering, voice from within.
How often have you heard OH! You're a SCORPIO!! And why do people have this reaction to the Scorpio Sun sign? Well, mainly because Scorpio has total ego. A Scorpio knows what he is - he knows what he is not, and it matters not what anyone else thinks. That is the way it is!
The Sun in Scorpio has an intense desire to investigate the nature of all things. They are prepared to dig deep to discover what makes you tick. A Scorpio can be relentless when on a trail of subterfuge. Scorpios possess strong will-power, and intense emotional desires. The desire to do everything perfectly makes it almost impossible for a Scorpio to delegate responsibility. Diplomacy is not part of their vocabulary. Scorpio's tell it like it is and expect you to deal with it.
The sun here will defend justice to the death, if necessary. Scorpios are extremely loyal to friends and never forget a kindness, or, on the other hand, an insult.
Cancer is represented by the crab. It's shell is the armour which hides extreme sensitivity and shyness, as well as physical and psychological vulnerability. Cancers protect themselves from the possibility of emotional hurt by withdrawing and finding their security in solitude.
The Sun in Cancer is strongly linked to ancestry and heritage. Cancers possesses highly developed protective and defensive instincts aimed at material and domestic security.
Cancer people are very complex, they appear to have the strength of a giant and the next minute they seem to be as weak as a kitten.
Cancers have a deep sense of responsibility toward their families and they do not take kindly to interference. Highly imaginative and very sensitive, they have no sense of humour when it comes to the protection of what is theirs.
