As the name suggests, the water dragon relies on the presence of water to survive. The main reason for this is because water is their main escape route when under attack from land-dwelling predators.
They can swim and walk along the bottom of creeks and ponds, staying under water for over an hour to avoid detection. Their long tails aid in swimming across the top of the water, and being semi-aquatic they do seem to have a great advantage over other lizards in the wild.
Water dragons spend their days basking on rocks, warming up in the sun and passively hunting insects and small rodents. If necessary they can run or climb very quickly in pursuit of prey, and also to avoid potential dangers. Their long limbs and claws allow them to climb rocks and trees, and also to dig out burrows for nesting.
The water dragon urges you to let go of that which does not serve you and seek balance in your life right now, rather than dwelling in the past.
In Chinese Astrology, the water dragon is said to be capable of soaring to the highest heights but also of diving deep into the depths of the ocean - allowing them to fully experience all of what the world has to offer. We can see that they teach us that it is ok to seek one extreme in life, but in order to stay balanced we must counteract it with the opposite.
A true embodiment of yin + yang energies.
