Aquarius Mythology: A Sneak Peek Into The Aquarius Inception
Aquarius is situated between Capricorn and Pisces and does not align with Gemini’s constellation. This water bearer (“aqua”) sign is undoubtedly the most innovative, snowy, and humanitarian.
During the 2nd Century AD, it was first recorded by Ptolemy, but it was earlier mentioned in Babylonian star catalogs as the “Great One.”
Aquarius is the eleventh zodiac sign. Various perceptions have been made for this air sign. The Babylonians considered this constellation the ‘Overflowing Urn,’ which merged with torrential rains in the year’s eleventh month. On the other hand, Egyptians viewed it as Hapi, i.e., Neil’s deity.
In the other event, there was a handsome young man named ‘Ganymede,’ son of a dardania. According to Greek mythology, once the Trojan prince was herding sheep. When Zeus, King of gods, came down like an eagle, he was captivated by the beauty of the young man. He wanted to take’ Ganymede to Mount Olympus, the Home of Greek Gods.
So, he snatched him with his claws and brought him back to Mount Olympus. He made him the cupbearer of the Greek God and goddess. His father, Tros, was not happy that Zeus took Ganymede from him. Instead, Zeus reimbursed the loss by sending a messenger with some beautiful horses.
The horses compensated for the loss of the father. He felt proud and happy that his son became the cupbearer of immortals. After some time, Zeus must have had enough of Ganymedes. That was the time when Zeus put him in the stars, and that’s what became the constellation Aquarius.
