* Breathe not the sins of others
so long as thou art thyself a sinner.
Yin and Yang / Feminine and Masculine are in every element, but often will have more characteristics that line up with a certain side. The qualities of Water element are considered more feminine or yin. But without a certain measure of Yang or Masculine attributes the Water will be imbalanced. Or if the Water element has an over abundance of Masculine attributes it will also cause an imbalance that impedes its proper functioning.
From the virtues list above, if you added your number of negatives and they easily surpass your positives then you are probably water deficient. However, if you did not take the time to add these up you can simply ask yourself the following questions:
Are you feeling disconnected from others, dry in your relationships?
Do you feel a lack of flow in your life, like you are going nowhere?
Do you feel your potential is stuck?
Are you caught up in something that is carrying you away from the direction you would rather be going? (...resentment?)
This is an indication of either deficient water and/or flow. This is sometimes referred to as stuck water or stuck potential. Also, in more serious cases, water is receding / flowing the wrong way.
In any case you may want to consider calling in the water element qualities listed above, as well as summoning the energies of the Lover and/or the Philosopher.
You also may want to consider bringing in air qualities; as air supports water.
From the virtues list above, if you added your number of positives and they easily surpass your negatives then you are probably water excessive. However, if you did not take the time to add these up you can simply ask yourself the following questions:
Are you feeling very emotional, easily teary eyed and overwhelmed?
This can be an indication of having excessive water element; which can be good for a while to get thru pain or grief; but if it seems such emotionality goes on for too long, you may want to consider summoning the energies of the Earth Element and their corresponding archetypes: the Caregiver and/or the Feminine; Earth controls Water.
