Well…I made it to # 2 in my Astrology series!! Enjoy…

Aquarius (♒) is the eleventh astrological sign in the Zodiac, originating from the constellation Aquarius. Although the astrological sign of Aquarius may begin as early as January 19 in some years, the Sun typically leaves Capricorn and enters Aquarius on the cusp day January 20th. In astrology, Aquarius is considered a “masculine”, positive (extrovert) sign. It is also considered an air sign and is one of four fixed signs.
Aquarius is sometimes identified with Ganymede, a beautiful youth in Greek mythology with whom Zeus fell in love and, in the disguise of an eagle (represented by the constellation Aquila), carried off to Olympus to be “cup-bearer” to the gods. Aquarius has also been identified as the pourer of the waters that flooded the Earth in the ancient Greek version of the Great Flood myth. As such, the constellation Eridanus the river is sometimes identified as a river being poured by Aquarius.
Equarians put a lot of energy into forming opinions and hold to them strongly. Driven by two planets, each representing opposite principles they frequently display a ‘wild’ side, linked to planet Uranus and prompting eccentric leanings, as well as a structured ambitious hard working Saturnian side. They are most happy when they are doing something different in a big ambitious way. Aquarians are the thinkers of the zodiac, their key phrase: “I serve humanity”.
