Water: the Strongest Element?

Where Would We Be Without It?

Life on Earth owes a huge debt to water. Without it, we wouldn’t exist. And yet, it can be most unforgiving when it’s in its primal condition, liquid.

Have you ever thought about it: its strength, I mean? It can fill the Air with clouds, rain, snow, even ice. And at the same time, it is most useful in stopping Fire in its tracks. And, when it floods, Earth cannot hold it back. Tsunamis can carry away whole villages and everything in them.

But, we need water to survive, since we are about 70% water ourselves. Dehydration can kill us.

Bottled Water

Who was the bright spark that decided to make an industry out of bottling water? As we so require it, how is it even allowed for someone, anyone to control and market drinking water? This is free-market thinking gone horribly wrong.

I know it was 2,000 years ago, but didn’t Jesus say it first?

Then you will become children of your Father in heaven. For he makes his sun shine on good and bad people alike, and he sends rain to the righteous and the unrighteous alike. (Matthew 5:45)

The hint is that both the sun and the rain are freely given to everyone, not just a select few who can afford them.

Water Element in Astrology

“The sympathetic, sensitive and often vindictive, emotional Water sign group are frequently represented by the Scorpion, not only because of its ‘sting’ but also for the frequency with which it was anciently supposed to sting itself to death rather than face a ring of fire. It is also symbolized by the serpent — perhaps connotating the ‘wisdom of the serpent’ of the Garden of Eden. In the Roman Sphynx it is represented by the asp on the man’s forehead. Its ‘lone wolf’ proclavities, and the frequency with which strength in Scorpio is reflected in a Roman nose — the eagle’s beak — have been symbolized at some periods of antiquity by the Eagle, as evidenced by the eagle’s wings on the Egyptian Sphynx.”

(Encyclopedia of Astrology by Nicholas de Vore – Philosophical Library, New York 1947)

Conclusion

The three Water signs in Astrology appear to be weak, mainly because of the tears in evidence whenever their natures are affected, but, in truth, they are the strongest of the whole Zodiac: Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces.

You would do well to remember that.
