Who are the "Waters" of GSW?
Just hearken to our motto:
"Life, Death, and Transformation"
We are the ebb and flow to the spirit of GSW.
Apprentices and Magisters of the Waters Lodge are the rising tide of life, lifting everyone in the school towards higher achievement.
We embrace "death" as a force of change and welcome new things, new ideas, and new ways.
The power of Transformation is our bulwark against dogma, stagnation, and entropy.
We provide the nourishing waters that
aid and abet growth.
We flow over, around, and even through whatever stands in our way.
We are fluid and adaptable to change, effortlessly accommodating whatever comes our way.
We are the Waters of GSW!
What is the Significance of Our Lodge's Name?
The Coterie of the Flowing Waters embraces all those Apprentices and Magisters born under the Zodiac signs of Pisces, Cancer, and Scorpio. As our name implies, we embody the element of water, which comprises 70% of our planet’s surface! From mighty seas to humble ponds, from the rain that falls to the babbling brook, or even the water in each of us; we embrace and exemplify the powers of our Element.
If you have any questions, it is our Prefect's job to help you find answers, so please do not hesitate to ask!

Cancer: June 22 - July 22
This Moon-ruled sign rules the home, family, motherhood, and children. It is also in charge of emotions, so expect any Cancer planet to operate "from its gut." Cancer specializes in instinct. It's cardinal water—good at emotional beginnings and keeping private. But the world is a scary place to Cancer planets—they're emotionally vulnerable, sensitive, and easily hurt. Cancer planets often long for their safe nests. Because they love with the energy of the Moon, Cancer planets say "I love you" by tending to your needs for food, warmth, or a place to sleep. They offer the very best hugs in the zodiac. The problem with Cancer planets is that they often become needy or unable to function unless they feel someone, or something is dependent on them. They are moody, but it's their job to be —they're Moon-ruled.
Scorpio: October 24 - November 22
Water signs are gifted by being able to sense. Cancer uses its instinct, and Pisces uses its intuition. However, Scorpio operates on its perceptive abilities. Planets in this sign are detectives, experts at the delicate art of strategy. Your Scorpio planets sift through every situation for subtle clues, which they analyze carefully to determine what's really going on. Because they're good at spotting clues, they're also gifted at sending equally subtle signals back into the environment, and at imperceptibly altering a situation by manipulating it with the right word or movement. Scorpio planets are constantly searching for intimacy. They want the real stuff from all encounters. No lighthearted Libra chit-chat—they want to bare their souls. They seek out intensity and crises. They can be relentless, obsessive, and jealous—remember that this is fixed water energy, so Scorpio feels things deeply and forever. Give your Scorpio planets what they crave: the opportunity to walk fire and to experience life-and-death situations. They're wells of limitless energy.
Pisces: February 19 - March 20
Pour a glass of water onto a table, and you'll see how mutable water flows into every comer. With no walls to contain it, Pisces, like this water, bonds itself emotionally to whatever is exposed. This is the source of Pisces' well-deserved reputation for compassion. It is also the source of a tendency to escape reality. Planets in this sign are ultra sensitive, feeling anything and everything. They're psychic sponges that often need time alone to unload and reassemble themselves. Exposure to others, especially crowds, is exhausting co your Pisces planet. It's in tins sign that you may find a tendency to cake in stray people and animals, but also where you’ll need to watch for the possibility of being victimized or taken advantage of in some way. Pisces planets are not known for their realistic view of the world—they see the best in any person or situation—but when reality steps in they sometimes can be disappointed- These planets are the romantics of the zodiac. Let them dream in healthy ways.
