"The corresponding month in the Babylonian calendar is Arax Šabaṭu, "the destroying month", also called arax arrat zunne, "month of the curse of rains", associated with the Great Flood. It is dedicated to Ramman, the storm god. "The zodiacal sign of this month was called GU = Assyrian qâ, the name of a dry-measure. "This was associated with Hebrew kad, "pitcher, jar", presumably in reference to the urn of Aquarius. "The name Aquarius of this sign is of occidental origin, while Babylonian astrology symbolizes it with a simple amphora, in reference to the apsû (diluvial) region of the sky."
"The astrological symbol for Aquarius is said to represent waves or ripples of water."
"Astrologers broadly agree the following traits are associated with Aquarius. "Note that no scientific research thusfar has been able to prove such correlation, leading the scientific community to consider astrology as a pseudoscience or superstition more than a science. "On the other hand, many astrologers consider planetary aspects to hold a more pervasive influence than sign location, thus conceding many exceptions."

"Many astrologers believe that each sign of the zodiac has identifiable physical traits. Individuals born under the sign of Aquarius tend to have a vague expression, a high forehead, finely chiseled features and oval with flat planes, and there is a look of nobility suggestive of the classic Greek or Roman models. "They are above average height and have a slender figure." "Their eyes are usually light coloured and convey remoteness and have a dreamy quality. "Aquarians also have average noses and lips that are full at the center and thin out toward the edges."
"Aquarius is widely thought to be compatible with same element signs - Libra, Gemini and Aquarius itself. It is often considered to have a great potential with Sagittarius granted they do not overreact to things, as both are given to whims and can be quite temperamental."
"There are many variables that determine compatibility in astrology, such as birth dates, birth months, birth years, position of a sign within the Sun, the Moon, Stars, etc. "The signs listed as compatible with Aquarius do not reflect an individual profile or individual reading as interpreted within astrology, but rather reflect a general guideline and reference to compatibility as dictated by variables such as Qualities and Elements within the Zodiac. "Professional astrologers rarely boil compatibility down to just the sun-sign. The branch in astrology dealing with interpersonal compatibilities is called Synastry."
