Chinese Astrology Element: Water

WaterWater is a gentle element, and Water people are most at home using an indirect approach to achieve their goals. Although capable of devastating power (witness floods), Water is at its magnificent best when it quietly grounds down obstacles as in the process of soil erosion. That is how Water created the Grand Canyon, one of the great wonders of the natural world.
Positive Traits: Communicative, convincing, diplomatic, empathetic, flexible, intuitive, open mined, resilient, sensitive, soft spoken, spontaneous and sympathetic.

The emotional Water person is very sensitive to other people and their needs. When you combine this with your normally excellent communications skills, it’s easy to understand that you can be an excellent enabler and counselor.

As a non threatening Water person you can easily get close to other people and often end up influencing them even more than aggressive people who use the direct approach. As with the stream that wears away the rough rock leaving a beautifully polished stone, you usually leave us the better for having known you.

You will probably not try to overwhelm with force but, rather, will wear down opposition with persistence. You likely prefer to present your point in a diplomatic manner. You will rarely blurt out a blunt or straightforward contradiction to what others say. You probably don’t even like to stand up and fight when attacked. You might yield and yield; however, you won’t break. You are a survivor and likely to outlast our onslaughts.
Your resilience and drive extend to daily life as well. Little things do not distract you from your mission. Furthermore, you add strength to others, and many people value the support you provide.
