Aquarius is the eleventh astrological sign in the Zodiac, originating from the constellation Aquarius.
I'm a Swedish astrologer, author and historian of ideas, researching the thought patterns in mythology.
Qi (chi), prana, pneuma, spiritus, and all the other life force concepts around the world explained and compared.
All the philosophers of Ancient Greece and what they thought about cosmology, myth, religion and the gods. The above image is the established symbol (also called glyph) for the Zodiac sign Aquarius, the Water-Bearer (or Water-Carrier).
The Zodiac division of the ecliptic into twelve parts, each assigned a Zodiac sign, is probably of Babylonian (Mesopotamia) origin. The Zodiac, very much like the one we know today, might have emerged in Mesopotamia around 1000 BC.
The Babylonians connected this Zodiac sign and the constellation with one of their gods, Ea, calling it "The Great One." Ea was often depicted with an overflowing vase.
The reason for the connection between the sign and the carrying of water is hidden in history, but it has been persistent.


When the stars in the constellation are connected with lines, it's possible to make out a figure of some sort, pouring something in abundance.
Several of the Zodiac constellations are more vague than that in depicting their Zodiac sign. The right side of the constellation can be said to represent a man, and the left side the water he pours out.
Below is an antique illustration of the same constellation, where the figure of the water-bearer has been added. Below is an ink version of the symbol for Aquarius, which I did a number of years back in an experiment of using Japanese ink calligraphy (shodo) for old European astrology symbols.
As for the picture commonly used to represent the Aquarius Zodiac sign, it's been an image of a water-bearer since the days of old Babylonia - surely much longer than the symbol described above has existed. The Greeks picked up the idea of a water-bearer and connected it to the myth about Ganymede, Zeus' lover, who was brought to the domain of the gods, where he served them drinks.
For the header of this website, I used a coin with the image of the Water-Bearer in relief. The background is the Parthenon temple on Acropolis, Athens, from the 5th century BC, when Greek philosophy was starting to emerge - as a reminder of the major Aquarius trait: the philosopher. Here are the symbols (glyphs) of all the twelve Zodiac signs, and links to pages telling more about each Zodiac sign symbol.
