There are no particularly bright stars in the constellation and it can be difficult to view with the naked eye. However, it is the 10th largest constellation in the sky.

The Aquarian glyph represents waves of water and is the Egyptian hieroglyphic for water. Aquarius is popularly known as the “Water-Bearer”, for the water that the Aquarian Man distributes is the waters of consciousness and a universal understanding that “all men are indeed brothers and children of Earth and the cosmos”. The sign of Aquarius symbolizes Man perfected by his understanding of the oneness of mankind.

The fixed side to their nature makes them determined, stubborn and persistent. Their minds are analytical and scientific, often slanting towards the more humanistic side of science.

Aquarians come to life through their inventive and innovative spirit, often facing enormous and overwhelming obstacles placed in their path by their ruler Saturn and are forced to draw upon an enormous reservoir of inner strength, determination and commitment as they courageously press on with their crusade staring in the face of social obstruction, potential embarrassment and even ridicule for their pioneering and progressive belief system and or lifestyle.

Given the fixed nature of the sign, they tend to be notoriously stubborn. Once their minds are made up about something, no amount of persuasion (subtle or aggressive) will convince them to change their mind.

They do not make a habit of setting aside very much time for homemaking chores. Most of them prefer not to be bound up in regular habits of routine or restricted by any kind of prescriptive behavior regulations, but easily adapt if needs be.

The true Aquarian is the bringer of light. Aquarius is the sign that brings in new ideas, inventions, social doctrines, belief systems to Earth so that mankind can experiment with them.

Breaking borders and dissolving boundaries, and building bridges between people and nations are his or her thing.
