According to Greek Mythology Ganymede, a young prince of approximately 15 years of age, and supposedly the most handsome young man in Troy, came to the attention of Zeus, who is said to have changed himself into the shape of an Eagle to swoop down and grab the young Ganymede from off mount Ida where he was tending sheep.
Note**In ancient Greece, it was considered a social norm for an older man to make a young boy (12-19 years) as a lover. **
Zeus took Ganymede back to Mount Olympus to become his servant/lover, serving him drinks whenever he wanted. It is said that one day Ganymede refused to be Zeus’s cup bearer any longer and that he poured out all the wine, ambrosia, and water of the gods, and that as the water fell to Earth, it caused days upon days of rain which caused massive floods that flooded the entire world.
Zeus realising, he has been unkind to Ganymede makes him immortal as the constellation Aquarius.

They have an open inquisitive mind, and love to explore all topics, they are opinionated and can typically hold their own in debates.
People with the birth sign Aquarius generally have an objective attitude to life, which at times might make them appear aloof or unemotional. But this is not the case, they are deep thinkers and want the best for the collective all.
Being a fixed sign makes Aquarius determined, so once inventive Aquarius sets their minds to something, they won’t give in until their goal is accomplished.
Aquarius – The water bearer has a humanitarian approach to life; they care about the community they live in.
Aquarius people are progressive, unconventional, and unique beings, they are generally intellectual and will want to carve out their own path. That said they also work well within a team.
Aquarius people are quirky, some may say a little weird at times, but this is what makes them unique, their ability to wear their quirkiness on their sleeve with pride.
Aquarius connects with the eleventh house of the zodiac, which is associates with groups, communities, and social circles, making them great in social settings and as a teammate.

The free-love era wasn’t named ‘The Age of Aquarius’ for nothing! These free loving individuals don’t really take a lot of notice about the rules of love and will march to the beat of their own drum, finding their own rules and ethics.
Aquarius are flirtatious and may come across restless when it comes to love. They can quite easily become long term "friends with benefits" because deep feelings for another person can lead them to feeling trapped.
An Aquarius person is independent and doesn't generally want to depend on another person or have them depend on them. This can make commitment challenging for Aquarius.
An Aquarius is physically passionate, and honest, they tend to be in tune with their own sexuality, whatever that may be. They enjoy the physical aspect of love and believe sex and passion can exist outside of love. That said Aquarius does care deeply for their partner but is pragmatic and therefore won’t expect another person to put their needs above their own and vice versa.
Possibly one the best love matches for Aquarius is Gemini, both signs are intelligent, fun, and quirky. They connect well on a physical level and are happy to give each other the psychological space they can at times need.
