Antique Constellation Print / Astronomical Chart
Aquarius - The Water Bearer -
January 21st to February 18th
Aquarius (♒) (Greek: Ύδροχόος, "Hudrokhoös") is the eleventh astrological sign in the Zodiac, originating from the constellation Aquarius. 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 has been traditionally ruled by the planet Saturn, and, since its discovery, Uranus has been considered a modern co-ruler of this sign.
Individuals born when the Sun was in this sign are considered Aquarius individuals, or Aquarians. Under the tropical zodiac, the Sun is in Aquarius roughly from January 21 to February 18.
