According to western astrology systems, the element of water is associated with the zodiac sign of Scorpio. Scorpios are believed to exhibit symbolic characteristics of water, such as fluidity and a mysterious depth that exists beneath a calm surface. The water element is said to rule the soul.
Within western astrology, those born October 23rd to November 21st (sometimes the 24th to the 22nd) are considered to have a sun sign of Scorpio. In addition to Scorpio, other water signs include Cancer and Pisces. Because of their close association with water, it is said that these signs often exhibit heightened sensitivity in relationships and are particularly in tune with waves of emotion.
