Water Signs are emotional
The Water Signs: Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces represent emotional, instinctive, and subconscious energy that is nurturing, healing, and transformative. They are feeling, sensitive, intuitive, responsive, protective, and passionate.
They are often extraordinarily creative in artistic efforts that rely on symbolism and metaphor to carry the message of the work. They have a rich inner life, profound abilities in fantasy and visualization, and are capable of tremendous empathy.
Water Signs are complex
They support, improve, and restore others with whom they are involved, even when doing so is costly to their own personal resources. They are reflective, responsive, and fertile - mysterious, secretive, and complex. They can be sentimental ... and involved with memories of the past more than other signs. And they can be intense and passionate ... involved with authentic visions of the future and unmanifested potentials.
Each is literally looking for emotional union with their significant partners - in ways some signs would find intrusive and smothering. Furthermore, they tend to act out of feelings and instincts rather than logic, and can have trouble maintaining proper boundaries in their dealings with others.
Under stress, the Water signs can become moody, withdrawn, self-pitying, unstable, and overwrought.
Here are the Water Signs
Cancer nurtures, "mothers," protects, and provides for the security of home and family. It is concerned with the past, tradition, memories, and kinship connections. It can be nostalgic, tenacious, and deeply involved in its private life and domestic situation, but also moody, withdrawn, shy, and reluctant to venture regularly into the outer world.
Scorpio transforms, improves, recycles, destroys and builds again, and joins its abilities with those of other contributors to fashion advantages and offerings that wouldn't be possible without this alliance of various special abilities. It can be powerful, resourceful, dynamic, and controlling - interested in permanent, sweeping changes. It has an instinctive feel for its own immortality and ability to handle crisis, but it can also be quite active in instigating chaos and upheaval - to make things better by rebuilding from the ground up.
Pisces heals injury and illness in body, mind, and spirit. It is concerned with experiencing and offering inspiration, compassion, and spiritual wisdom on an almost super-human level. It can be deeply intuitive, psychic, empathetic, mystical and artistic. It is strongly influenced by visions and urges from the subconscious mind, and is the most talented of the signs in merging itself into the emotions and experiences of others with great understanding, but it can be impractical, reclusive, unrealistic, and too easily exploited in the name of "love."

Born with the Sun in Scorpio -- The Scorpio Character ---> Scorpios handle a crucial phase of life's business -- Scorpios have extremely important work to do in life, so I suppose it's only fair to indulge them for being so reserved and solitary.

Born with The Sun in Pisces -- The Pisces Character ---> The saintly souls of the Zodiac -- Pisces souls are extraordinary people, often unappreciated and misunderstood for the crucial contribution they make to the reality where we all reside.

It can also be easily overwhelmed by other qualities present in a Pisces personality -- making it hard to see the soft, sensitive, esoteric spirit that contains and expresses this Pisces energy.
