“I will push myself and humanity forward.”
Aquarius is the most intelligent and logical sign of the Zodiac. Those born of this Sun Sign are highly analytical and cognitive, often having above-average IQs. They are problem solvers who analyze both sides of a situation to calculate the best outcome. Aquarius is a humanitarian sign, using its intelligence to ensure societal progression. Aquarius is known for being original and independent in their pursuits. However, this can make them aloof, uncompromising, and emotionally distant. They make ideal inventors and innovators, always developing the next big thing that will improve society as a whole.
What to Know about Aquarius
Aquarius is an Air Sign, along with Gemini and Libra. Air is a masculine element that combines the Zodiac qualities of hot and wet. The airy nature of Aquarius allows them to continue pushing forward and progressing with an open mind. An Aquarius requires constant mental stimulation or they will grow bored and unmotivated. The totem of Aquarius is the Water Bearer, one of the oldest known constellations. Aquarius translates to "water-carrier" in Latin and is based on the Greek story of Ganymede, who was the first mortal to become immortal. Aquarius proves that humans can achieve extraordinary feats.
Aquarius' ruling planet is Uranus and Jupiter. Aquarius is the only Zodiac Sign that has Uranus as their ruling planet. Uranus encourages Aquarius to be free-thinking and progressive, allowing them to contribute to humanity in large and positive ways. Uranus also makes them forward-thinking, often knowing exactly what they want to do years into the future. This allows an Aquarius to consider the future and see possibilities others wouldn't even consider.
Marco Mora, Keeper of Aquarius
“I was born a prodigy. I will not only live up to my father's reputation, but exceed it.”
Marco Mora is the 21-year-old Keeper of Aquarius in my YA Fantasy, SON OF THE SUN. Marco is the most intelligent Zodiac Keeper. His unrivaled intellect earns him both admiration and intimidation from his comrades. He is the child of Cuban immigrants who moved to Los Angeles, CA. His father was a highly regarded neurosurgeon with a brilliant mind. Marco is ambitious and logical, with a future as bright as his gray eyes. His ultimate dream is to win a Nobel Prize, but his Zodiac duties have held him back from his academic pursuits. His comrades affectionately call him a nerd for his pigeon-holed focus on academics and his inability to read emotions. He occasionally comes off as cold and calculative, but this often plays to his comrades' advantage.
