The Queen of Water lives in an emotional world and must constantly produce strong emotions. For example, she will create an argument or a quarrel only for the sake of arguing, only to express emotions. Since the queen’s world and her imagination are related to people, she will usually focus a feeling of hatred or love on a particular person whom she will deeply hate or love. Even if that person changes or disappears from her world, she will find another subject to love or hate, just in order to continue and express strong feelings. The same goes for other areas such as politics, society, work, relationships and so forth. The Queen of Water has an urge to be in the center of attention and the need to be loved.
