Aquarius is the 10th largest constellation in the sky. Its name comes from an Arabic phrase “sa’d al suud”, which means “luck of lucks’. The largest star in Aquarius is Sadalsund, a yellow supergiant. In the Babylonian mythology Aquarius was presented as god Ea, holding an overflowing vase in its hands. Aquarius is a symbol of visionary, unorthodox solutions and intellectual independence. 

In Latin there is a phrase closely associated with Aquarius Constellation: Lucida Fortunae Fortunarum, which means the “Brightest Luck of Lucks”. In the Babylonian mythology Aquarius was identified as GU.LA, meaning the “Great One”. For Aquarius are impenetrable riddles. Independence is not just a principal value desired by Aquarius, it is essential to their well being. Aquarius tend to be rebels just for the sake of having their own way, they do not like to follow the commonly accepted rules and norms, boredom being their worst enemy. They welcome changes, love to make people laugh and cheer them up; it makes them feel good to make others feel good. But deep down Aquarius is a loner, an independent and self-reliant visionary who follows his own path. 

In the Hellenic culture Aquarius is often associated with Deucalion, son of Prometheus who, advised by Zeus, built a ship and saved his family from flood sent by the ruler of the Olympians. The Greek myth parallels the story of the great flood in Old Testament. In both cases the flood is unleashed to parish people for their misdeeds and sins. In the Egyptian mythology Aquarius represented Hapi, the god of the Nile River, on which depended the life of Egyptians.
