The Water Cycle and the Cycle of Life
The Water Element is, among the 5 Elements, the most charged with symbolism and importance.
What it sustains is part of the depths of each of us and allows us to love life to the fullest and fearlessly embrace our destiny.
Water, biologically, is the source of all life on the globe, the matrix that in the form of amniotic fluid and primordial waters preserves and enables the beginning of life.
We can compare this fantastic element to the circulatory system of the human body, which is used to transport heat, nourishment…in other words, life.
Water is a subtle element; in fact, in the form of vapor it rises to the sky and is impregnated with astral energies. It later falls to the earth in the form of rain, fertilizing it with the energies captured in the subtle dimension.
The Earth enjoys from the information received from Water, because of its continuous evolution.
If your water element is very strong and balanced then you are a very sociable, pleasant, sensitive and accepting person. It is difficult to argue with you because you always manage to avoid conflict. Your motto is “I love being alive and responsible for my own destiny.”
