How you handle an upset determines your overall mood for the day. You may be acutely aware of how an incident can tip your mood, or you may be oblivious.

When someone has strong “water” in their horoscope (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces), they are sensitive to emotions— both their own and other people’s. If this is your elemental makeup, you either have spent a lifetime navigating emotions and steer a tight ship of processing and perspective, or you find yourself continually reacting to emotional weather.

It doesn’t mean that someone without strong water is insensitive.

What is most important is to be clear, even if clarity leads you to declare: “I’m confused!” When we don’t acknowledge what’s happening inside, we create cracks of vulnerability.

Which brings me to Leonard Cohen:
“Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything
That’s how the light gets in. “

It may take awhile to get to see it, so turn your face toward the light. Be OK with the confusion— it will burn off and leave you with what’s truly important.
