Me Natal no lines
On my Natal chart I have my North Node, Moon, Jupiter, and MC in the water element.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Me Solar Return no lines
On my Solar Return chart I have Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune in the water element.  This ties with the air element for influence in my Solar Return chart..
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I looked up the definition of "Temperament" for deeper understanding and for future interpreting adventures.
a person's or animal's nature, esp. as it permanently affects their behavior
 
I thought the following was relevant too because it talks about 12 semitones which is the same number of signs in the Zodiac!  Hmmmm…connectedness.
the adjustment of intervals in tuning a piano or other musical instrument so as to fit the scale for use in different keys; in equal temperament, the octave consists of twelve equal semitones
 
In the Tarot the element of water is represented by the goblet (cup or chalice). (3p10)
In ancient Indian texts it is the Tattwa called Apas. (3p10) The water element or Apas is also directly derived from Akasa.  It is the opposite of Fire or Tejas.  Water is considered a passive/negative element. It’s basic qualities are coldness and shrinkage.  Water also has both positive/active and negative/passive poles.  The positive/active being constructive, life giving, nourishing and protecting.  The negative/passive being destructive, dissecting, fermenting, and dividing.  It is described by Bardon as being Magnetic fluid.  Water is also contained within all of creation.
