To paddle a canoe on a calm stream, denotes your perfect confidence in your own ability to conduct your business in a profitable way.
To row on rough waters you will have to tame a shrew before you attain connubial bliss.
If the waters are shallow and swift, a hasty courtship or stolen pleasures, from which there can be no lasting good, are indicated.
Water is typical of futurity in the dream realms.
If a pleasant immediate future awaits the dreamer he will come in close proximity with clear water.
Or if he emerges from disturbed watery elements into waking life the near future is filled with crosses for him.
