The Five of Water shows a middle aged man looking through his old high school yearbook. If we have a huge success early in life it is sometimes hard to top it and we long for those better times. We reminisce and revisit over and over again and wish we could go back. This is of course living in the past. It may be that we can never have exactly what we did before but the infinite possibilities in the Universe could even give us more. Besides, the past may not have been as good as we remember it. The man’s shrine to the past shows where his focus is. He should learn from the mascot of his youth. Dolphins never swim backward. Like the ice in his glass, he is frozen in time.
