WHAT IS AQUARIUS?
Aquarius, the water bearer, is the eleventh sign of the zodiac. This astrology sign is for those born between January 21 and February 20. Despite its nickname, Aquarius is a wind sign traditionally ruled by Saturn, but is now seen as under the influence of Uranus. For proud Aquarians, what is the best Aquarius jewelry to wear?
THE AQUARIUS SYMBOL
There are several tales of how the zodiac sign originated. Here is one of the most popular.
The water bearer Aquarius is Ganymede, a young man known for his beautiful appearance. The son of a king, Ganymede was seen by Zeus while the boy was tending to his father’s flocks on Mount Ida.
Smitten with his beauty, Zeus is said to have transformed into a large bird, carrying Ganymede to the home of the gods. Ever after, Ganymede would serve as cupbearer to the Greek gods.
Therefore, we now use the overflowing ewer as symbol of Aquarius. A ewer is a type of pitcher, used for pouring water, wine, or other spirits.
Other versions of the myth change details, such as the eagle Aquila carrying the boy, or even his identity! A Babylonian legend tell us that Aquarius is their god, Ea, the god of water, and it is his pitcher we see in the heavens. The Egyptians tied the constellation to the annual flooding of the Nile. Can’t deny that!
Another symbol popular with Aquarians is the actual Aquarius constellation. Viewable in the winter sky in the Northern Hemisphere, the constellation is made of many stars. Also, several meteor showers are known to occur within Aquarius.
In modern times, each Aquarius symbol is frequently found within Aquarius jewelry.
