Aquarius Picks

Aquarius is the 11th sign of the Zodiac, and Aquarians are the perfect representatives for the Age of Aquarius. Humanitarians, philanthropic, and keenly interested in making the world a better place, Aquarians focus much of their energy on social institutions and how they work, or don’t work.

 

The constellation of the Aquarius sign, the Water-Bearer, is one of the oldest of our current zodiac. Harking back to Babylonian times, the Aquarius constellation was associated with the protective god Ea, who carried an overflowing vase of water.

 

Moreover, the Egyptians associated Aquarius with the flooding of the Nile, which was believed to occur when the Water-Bearer dipped his pitcher into the great river. The swelling of the Nile then corresponded to the commencement of Spring, a fertile time of growth after the flood of water to the region.

 

 

Also, in Greek mythology, the Aquarius sign was connected to the mythological youth Ganymede, who was the son of Tros, the Trojan king. Ganymede’s claim to fame came when Zeus transported him to Mount Olympus, to be the cupbearer of the gods.

 

Aquarians are visionaries, progressive souls who love to spend time thinking about how things can be better. They are also quick to engage others in this process, which is why they have so many friends and acquaintances. Making the world a better place is a collaborative effort for them.

 

Aquarius is the last of the 4 fixed signs of the zodiac, who all hold an elemental energy of endurance and stability in the middle phase of the 4 seasons. The Aquarius sign begins the middle of winter, when the season is most “fixed” and established, lending to the tenacious, immovable, and somewhat stubborn tendencies of the formidable Aquarian intellect. This is the time of year when the sun is at its lowest strength, heat, and light. This may lend cool and remote qualities to the Aquarian archetype, which tends to be more thoughtful and inventive during the cold, insular season. Furthermore, Aquarius’ affinity for innovation, invention, and intellectual focus is akin to its active, flowing air element. A light, dispersive element, thought to be an expression of matter that represents formlessness and dissolution.
