While the spontaneous and witty Water Horse has many positive attributes, their zodiac influence is not without some negative aspects as well. At times, the Water Horse can be overly indecisive, which makes it difficult for members of the sign to find definitive direction in life. Similarly, this "off the wall" nature can make it difficult for the Water Horse to develop strong, long-lasting relationships.
