Zodiac Eleventh sign - Water Bearer
Example Aquaria

Aquarius is the ancient name for the colony of Aquaria in the Battlestar Galactica universe. In astrology, it is the eleventh sign of the zodiac, represented by the Water Bearer.

The Colony

The Twelve Colonies were founded by tribes from Kobol, the birthplace of humanity. Two thousand years prior to the present (42YR), a disaster of a now forgotten nature forced the tribes to abandon their home. They journeyed to the Cyrannus Star System (a cluster of two binary systems) located two thousand light years away from Kobol. Aquarius was the original name of the colony of Aquaria.


Aquarius (Latin: "Water Bearer") is the eleventh sign of the zodiac, governing the period from about January 20 to about February 18.  It has been suggested that its representation as a man pouring a stream of water out of a jug came about because in ancient times the rising of Aquarius coincided in the Middle East with a period of floods and rain.[1]
