34. Aquarius

34. Aquarius

Aquarius (Water-carrier), 11th Sign of the Zodiac, is seen from August to October. Bounded on the East by Pisces, and Cetus on the West by Aquila, on the North by Pegasus and Equuleus, on the South by Piscis Austrinus. About 150 stars are visible to the naked eye. When the Venerable Bede changed the names of the Zodiac signs to those of Saints, he called Aquarius 'John the Baptist', probably because it marked the rainiest of months. Principal star Alpha Aquarii, a pale yellow double star of 3rd magnitude, is known as King's Lucky Star.
