When I was a child I was terrified of water. Being a Pisces I was also fascinated with it. I would get a bowl of water and submerge my dolls and farm animals in it so they could ‘go for a swim’, but I couldn’t swim myself. One of our neighbours was a swimming instructor and decided it would be useful to throw me in the deep end of the local pool when I was 5. I remember seeing all the legs above me as I sank to the bottom. It didn’t cure me – I would scream when my hair was being washed, because my head would be pushed under the running water and I felt like I couldn’t breathe.
