The nurturing vibes overflow between you, leading you to the happy family life you both crave. Two highly sensitive and perceptive water signs can get VERY comfortable with each other—and fast.
Home is everything to the water sign. Your solitude-seeking souls need to retreat to a private and intimate hub after being out in the wider world. You could host the holidays, rent the beach house where everyone communes, have kids crawling out of every nook. A water sign home is likely to feature cozily-appointed guest bedrooms and lots of spare pillows and blankets. Your nostalgic signs both cherish family and tradition. Spending time with friends, coworkers or relatives of another element can introduce a more balancing energy.
If you wrap yourselves too tightly in this security blanket, it can smother you.

Do you like to take charge and have a plan, or do you prefer to go with the flow? Fixed signs are set in their ways, while cardinal signs are a touch more fluid, though stubborn in their own right!
When the cardinal sign scores reservations at a buzzy new restaurant, resort, club or event, the fixed sign had better clean up and GO. So, cardinal sign, you got a conventional Tiffany locket instead of an Alexander McQueen limited-edition ring? Suck it up and say thanks—or start dropping hints a lot sooner before your next birthday! When all is good, you are deeply simpatico, nurturing one another and sharing romantic, thoughtful gestures. Your fluctuating moods may collide, causing dramatic fights that can escalate into an unnecessary cold war.
Your signs are trine , or four signs apart. A little autonomy goes a long way to keep the passion alive.
