In Greek mythology, Aquarius is sometimes associated with Deucalion, the son of Prometheus who built a ship with his wife Pyrrha to survive an imminent flood. They sailed for nine days before washing ashore on Mount Parnassus.
Aquarius Cultural significance
Aquarius is often associated with Ganymede, a young and beautiful prince of Troy, with whom Zeus fell in love. Zeus disguised himself as an eagle and carried Ganymede to be the cup-carrier to the gods. Hera, wife of Zeus, was jealous of the young prince and treated him with contempt. Zeus, however, was not phased by the wrath of his wife and had Ganymede accompany him on his travels, bearing a golden cup. Ganymede was a kind and compassionate young man and he took pity on the people of earth when he saw they were without water. He begged Zeus to allow him to help the people and eventually was granted permission. He sent down rain upon the earth and quenched the thirst of the people.

He was deified as Aquarius, god of rain. Aquarius was considered positive by cultures which had lands plagued by drought, such as the Greeks and Egyptians. In contrast, cultures prone to flooding, such as the Babylonians, looked at Aquarius in a negative way. The mythological relationship of Zeus and Ganymede is often compared to the real relationship between Emperor Hadrian and Antinous. In fact, Antinous was given the spot below Ganymedes, to be carried to Emperor Hadrian by Zeus, just as he carried Ganymedes to Mount Olympus.
