This is one of the 13 constellations of the Zodiac.
Aquarius is a rather faint constellation which would not be famous if it weren't part of the Zodiac. Aquarius, as its name suggests is universally associated with water. In most cultures, it is drawn as a man pouring water from a bucket. This may arise from the fact that the Sun enters Aquarius in early winter when the rainy season begins in many parts of the world.
I was thinking about Tennessee and how clear the skies where at night there. I really miss that. I would sit there and just gaze into the vastness of it all. Obviously, I'm an Aquarius hence the above reference. I read my horoscope faithfully and my fortune cookie -- occasionally.
I'd say I'm dead on in resembling my star-sign minus the coldness they often say is a part of being an Aquarian. I've always found that to be hurtful. I try to be full of warmth and welcoming and well, I suppose if I haven't been... I could always contact a friend of mine. I hear she works well with crystals.
