Water flows around obstacles unless it is still and unmoving – in which case it can become stagnant. Emotions ebb and flow in the same way as Water. And a sympathetic or empathetic person is capable of deeply understanding the emotional problems of others.
Like Water, emotions can be powerful and productive, if channeled correctly. They can sweep away problems and uncertainties. However, if they are incorrectly channeled or allowed to overflow, they can become destructive.
Occasionally, if you are asking about a specific person, and their astrological sign belongs to one of the water signs (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces) then this card can appear as a confirmation that they are involved in what’s going on for you today.
Water is also associated with all forms of travel over water.
If Water appears for you, it’s likely that there is a significantly emotional tone to your question.
