The symbol for Aquarius is the Water-Bearer. Ironically enough, Aquarius is the last of the air signs and has nothing at all to do with the element of water. Rather, this symbol represents the flow of water, energy, or even time.
The actual symbol is the Water-Bearer: a healer who brings the needed water or life source to people and land. This fits very well with the Aquarian energy, which is about bringing all situations and circumstances to a place of healing. Aquarians very easily see both sides of the story and understand the flow that exists between each.
The symbol itself is a double zigzag pattern that visually is meant to represent the flow of life. Aquarians can roll with just about anything. But that’s also because they can easily solve problems, deal with sudden changes to the plan, and otherwise flow with anything that comes their way.
