Cool, intuitive, but tenacious too. Your natural sense of adventure makes you flexible, powerful and patient. You do, though, need boundaries to thrive. Without them your life can get unmanageable. Your fluid nature can mean that people don’t immediately “get” you. You seem so very flexible, adaptable and laid back. And while this might well be true, there is a mysterious side to you that others do not always appreciate or understand.

Water has hidden depths. So that easy-going first impression, which you radiate, belies the truth. It is most likely that you have difficulty in communicating your long-term plans and deeper emotions.

Compared to the other eight Star signs:

You are the deep thinker and strategic advanced planner. Your inscrutability will often surprise people around you when you present them with a fait accompli. To them it is as if you have suddenly decided upon something new. Far from it, you have been quietly planning, scheming and hatching your plan for a long time.

The 1 Water Birth Star comes from the I Ching trigram that reflects the family position of the Middle Son, the conciliator. You always look to resolve potential conflicts at work, play or especially in the family.

Water can either make you deep, solitary and broody – like Eric Clapton or Van Morrison, or it can be babbling like a brook, full of joy and enthusiasm like Jerry Seinfeld or Goldie Hawn

As a 1Water Star you are very good at keeping the lively 9 Fire Birth Star in order. Water cools the Fire. The 2 Earth, 5 T’ai Chi and 8 Mountain Stars, all associate with the earth element, are good for you, they can ensure that your energy stays focused!

You are quite happy to work independently of others and, in fact, need space and time for yourself in solitude. The element Water in Chinese medicine governs the functions of the kidneys, the bladder and the reproductive system. In the winter, this means that you must keep warm, get lots of rest, and eat and drink “warming foods”. Have more hot drinks than cold; eat hot cereals rather than cold for breakfast, soups as snacks rather than cold meals from the refrigerator.
