The water signs—Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces—are known for their sensitivity, keen intuition and the ability to feel out the vibe in any room. Like a pool of water, there’s much more to them than what you can spot on the surface.

Though these sensitive and mysterious signs can sometimes get a bad rap, those who truly get to know them understand just how much strength they have, inside and out. If you belong to this sign, you might keep certain people at a distance, but with these Instagram captions, you can grant them deeper insight into your true self.
