Water represents fluid, flowing, and formless things in the world. The dominant characteristic of people of the water element is the ability to control emotions and cooperate well with others. As people of the water element are naturally sociable and adaptable to changes, their communication skills are second-to-none. However, the negative aspect falls on the uncertainty of their decision-making ability. The water-element people can get upset and stressed easily and even lose their temper when being teased. From an astrological belief, this group of sensitive people is recommended to possess a gift or souvenir made in the model of a marine animal, lotus flower, or sailing boat.
