Aquarius - Llewellyn Worldwide by juliedillon Aquarius - Llewellyn Worldwide by juliedillon
Here is the next image I did for the Llewellyn Worldwide 2014 Astrology Calendar. :)

Aquarius: January 21 to February 19. Fixed Air sign. Independence, creativity, enlightenment, idealism, reform. Dominant colors: grays, silvery blue, and opalescent colors. Despite being the "Water Bearer," Aquarius is an air sign, not a water sign - she pours the water of knowledge onto the world. (something like that, anyway) ;) This one was really tricky for me, even though I'm an Aquarius, since it's a relatively ethereal sign.

You can preorder the calendar if you like, or just check out the rest of Llewellyn Worldwide's offerings at

i was born on the day where part of the world was Aquarius and the other Capricorn so my parents say that I'm more of an Aquarius while my sister is more of a capricorn
good job fellow Aquarius

This is beautiful...but why does everyone always draw Aquarius as a girl? It's supposed to be Ganymede, a boy. 
waningmoon7 Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
In fact, the aquarian "human form" is asexual! This thing about Ganymede is just in Greek Mythology.

Aquarians are much more for be labeled by gender or age (as well as many other signs)...  ¬_¬

It's funny, When I saw this piece I guessed you being an Aquarius. Very nice :) I commend you in your works

This whole series is incredible. This one and Pisces remind me of Bowser. Very powerful, and beautiful use of colour. :)
GDupons Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2013
Isn't it a bit strange that Aquarius, which is latin for water beeing, is an air instead of a water sign?
lagolindari Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2013
It's always puzzled me a bit, but I think it depends on the story behind it.

Ganymede, a young pretty boy, was kidnapped by Zeus who made him work as a... waiter? Pouring ambrosia for the gods, anyway. But Ganymede was deeply unhappy. Finally Zeus decided to have mercy and to set him free... but once a mortal lived with the gods, he could never go back to Earth. So Zeus set him free among the stars, where he became the Aquarius constellation, from where he keeps pouring the waters of knowledge.

Maybe it's an air sign because he's in the sky, so to speak? For me it's even stranger since in my language 'acqua' is water and 'acquario' is a fish tank :)!
GDupons Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2013
Bisexuality (like homosexuality) was not unmoralic in ancient Greece. So I think it's clear why Zeus kidnapped him.

For a german speking like me, your pictuer is puzzeling too. Our expression for this sign is "Wassermann" which means water man. But your Aquarius is definately female. Which I find much more likeable btw.

It looks awesome
xemnas-saix-love Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2013  Hobbyist Interface Designer
this is BY FAR the BEST potrayal of the aquarius sign I've ever seen 8D, otherwise it's just the waves or the urn pouring water :P

Beautiful! This is the best. Perfect colours and composition. :heart:
I love your Astrology pics, each one is really lovely and characteristic.
The Cancer (my sign) picture is so cute. :)
bluedevilsinger Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2013
Beautiful. My favorite version of Aquarius. No jug! No serene expression! No submissive stance! I LOVE IT!!!!! (x100000 because, quite frankly, I am anything but serene. I am one moody, independent. creative opinionated woman and anyone can tell you that. I will give you a speech on what I think if you give me enough time to formulate it.)
Feileastram Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
This is just gorgeous. The color scheme is very pleasing, and the use of the orange is very nice as well. This interpretation of the aquarius sign is very nice and I like how you incorporated the water and air, considering that it is in fact an air sign. This has to be my favorite version of aquarius that I have seen yet.
skybrush Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
I'm an Aquarius too! Your work continues to inspire :) This is an awesome visualization of this sign, and the others are amazing, too.

This is the most powerful interpretation of aquarius I have ever seen. Its really stunning. I've never been able to visualize aquarius in my head until now. It really communicates!
juliedillon Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2013
Thank you! I've always had a tricky time visualizing Aquarius, too. I think I spent the longest amount of brainstorming time on this one. I figured it'd be pretty lame if I screwed up my own sign... XD
