Aquarius () (Greek: Ύδροχόος, "Hudrokhoös", Latin: "Aquārius") is the eleventh astrological sign in the Zodiac, originating from the constellation Aquarius. The symbol of the water-bearer is based on Hyas, who was killed by wild beasts while fetching water from the river.[1] His sisters make rain when they weep for him, hence the sign's association with air.

Under the tropical zodiac, the sun is in Aquarius typically between January 21 and February 19, while under the Sidereal Zodiac, the sun is in Aquarius from approximately February 15 to March 14, depending on leap year.
