Water Sign Symbols

Today we will be looking at the wonderful water signs Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces! We will be exploring what symbols are associated with them and why they have been chosen.

Cancer - The Crab

In Latin, the word 'cancer' is the generic word for 'crab'! In Greek mythology, the symbol of Cancer was the crab (although it was sometimes a lobster) and was based on Karkinos, a crab crushed under the foot of Hercules. The remains of the crab were placed in the sky by Hera, which created the Cancer constellation. This myth shows how Cancerians can be easily hurt, but have the ability to rise above it all.

Scorpio - The Scorpion

The scorpion is Scorpios primary symbol. Scorpions inflict debilitating stings with their tails, and it's no secret that Scorpios can be rather devious and vengeful. Another symbol associated with Scorpio, is the eagle, which symbolises bravery, power and intelligence. Scorpio is a fixed sign, the same as Taurus, Leo and Aquarius. This means that Scorpios are loyal, faithful and stubborn!

Pisces - The Fish

The symbol for Pisces is the fish. There are two fish in Pisces symbol, both of which are swimming in opposite directions. This shows how Pisces have two different sides to them and how they also have a deep soul. Pisces are capable of seeing all sides to every situation and often have many thoughts that keep them distracted. Crystals associated with Pisces include Amethyst, Aquamarine, Jade and Lapis Lazuli.
