Lakes are connected to receptive wisdom, absorption, passiveness, reflection in physical and spiritual sense and peaceful, contemplative life where one goes to escape from the reality of the world. They represent the transition between life and death, between the solid and the gaseous, the formal and the informal.
Rivers are symbolically connected to the creative power of nature and time: on the one hand it signifies fertility and the progressive irrigation of the soil; on the other hand it stands for erosion, the irreversible passage of time and, in consequence, for a sense of loss and oblivion. They are connected to movement and overcoming obstacles, both the boundaries and ways to cross them.
