The sun enters Aquarius on this day [21st January], though he does not enter it in the visible zodiac until the 18th of February.

Ganymede, who succeeded Hebe as cup-bearer to Jove, is fabled to have been changed into Aquarius. Canobus of the Egyptian zodiac, who was the Neptune of the Egyptians, with a water-vase and measure, evidently prefigured this constallation. They worshipped him as the God of meany breasts, from whence he replenished the Nile with fertilizing streams.
