Hello!

Aquarius the "Water Bearer" is one of the constellations associated with water.
Sometimes he is said to be 'Ganymede' the 'cup bearer' of the gods on Mount Olympus. Aquarius is one of the Zodiacal constellations and is usually depicted as a figure pouring water from a jug, dating back to the time of the Babylonians.

Piscis Austrinus the "Southern Fish" is an ancient constellation, tracing back to the Babylonians. It is represented as a fish drinking the waters flowing from Aquarius' jar. Contains the bright star Fomalhaut, which means the 'fishes mouth'.
