Mythology of the constellation Aquarius

 

In many ancient cultures, including Babylonian, Egyptian and Grecian, there was a god known as the 'Water Bearer' or 'Water Pourer.' Water is the bringer and sustainer of all life; therefore the force that made water rain down from the heavens was among the most revered by ancient peoples. In Greek legend, Zeus was the Water Bearer. Although he was the god of many things, one of his most important roles was as the god of storms. The constellation Aquarius could have originally been representative of Zeus as the Water Bearer.

Another myth, probably of more recent origin, is the myth of Deucalion, the only man to survive the Great Flood. The story of this flood is very similar to the Judeo-Christian legend of Noah's Ark. It took place during the time named by Greek legendas the Iron Age.

 

As the story goes, during the Iron Age, humanity had become more savage than the wildest animals. Brother fought against brother, sons killed fathers, and no one was safe on the roads or in their own home. Both men and women were violent, bloodthirsty and utterly without morals. The words of the gods meant little or nothing to them, and no one would repent for their sins. Zeus, despairing for humankind, sent a great flood upon the Earth. The flood destroyed all the people in the world -- with the exception of Deucalion and his wife Pyrrha.

 

Zeus had noticed this couple during his last visit to Earth. They lived alone in a simple hut. They had almost no food, and definitely had no material goods. Despite this, they fed Zeus, gave him shelter for the night and spoke kindly to him, even though they had no idea that he was a god. They were the last godly people on Earth, so Zeus allowed them to survive the flood. After it ended, he helped them to create a new race of men, which was supposed to be stronger and better. Deucalion is known as the 'Water Bearer' because he not only lived through the flood, but he helped to bring life to a new generation.

Aquarius Personality

 

The man who carries the pitcher of water is the symbol for this sign. This is because Aquarians are often generous with their time and resources. For this reason this sign often find themselves in occupations where they are helping on some humanitarian level. They are interested and have a deep concern for the welfare of others. They never know a stranger and are generally loved by all around them. Aquarians never meet a stranger and often will go out of their way to meet with people that they’ve not heard from for years. Connection is at the core of this sign.

 

In 12 zodiac signs, fascinated by all things gadget, many Aquarians enjoy tinkering with inventions and processes. On the surface, Aquarius people are often not very emotional, because they are more concerned with the exchanging of ideas and how they might better assist someone in their cause. Aquarians have a great deal of patience and tolerance for their fellow man. They make excellent teachers and relief aid workers, though do not become personally involved with them.

Aquarius personality is very independent, any attempt to hold them down or restrict them will cause them, to flee. They need to be free to be on their own. Independence is not just desired by Aquarius, it is essential to their well being.

 

Upside: Aquarians are among the friendliest of the signs, making friends everywhere. They are often chosen among co-workers and family for special awards and honors because of their ability to network. Highly intelligent they are energetic and talented, often using their abilities to help others. Despite their extensive people skills, they often crave alone time to reflect and think about things. Meditation is recommended for this sign as it helps to maintain that sense of alone time, while at the same time a feeling of connectedness with something greater than themselves.

 

Downside: If this sign does not have alone time and time to do much desired reflection, they become dour, emotionless, and even are prone to depressive interludes. They can become highly resentful if they believe that their voice is not being truly heard or valued. Because they do self-reflect, this sign can become quite eccentric in some of the hobbies that they pursue, or activities they enjoy.
