and a star to steer her by

And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by;
~ Sea Fever by John Masefield
Or perhaps you'd like to catch that snippet as interpreted by Captain James T. Kirk. No matter. It boils down to the same thing: a compassionate person in command.

Our Father of Water knows the ways of water. He's aware of the tides and barrier reefs, what the shapes of waves mean, and how to maneuver a storm if there's no way around it. He is also aware of the stars in the sky and how he can navigate the great ocean using their shining guideposts. Our Father of Water has learned also how to be in command of his emotions. He may seem stoic on the surface, but still waters run deep. You just have to dive a little deeper to catch that current.

So.

Perhaps this is a day of maintaining your composure. Feel your feels, but know when to express them safely. Because it may also be an emotional day and saying the wrong thing at the right time will set off a hurricane. In short, if it's a storm you can navigate around it might be better to do so instead of riding it out with apologies and excuses. Like the Father of Water, you are in command of your tall ship and there are stars to steer her by. Peace out.
