A Q U I L A

Hello!

Aquila - 'The Eagle', comes to us from the ancient Greeks. He represents the God Zeus, in one of his many forms. Zeus was in need of a new cup bearer, so he changed into an eagle and carried off the Trojan prince Ganymede to serve the wine-pourer for all the gods. In some older celestial charts, an asterism right below Aquila represents the prince and is called "Antinous". Aquila is also said to be the eagle that helped Zeus in defeating and overthrowing the Titans. Zeus placed the eagle up in the sky as an honor.
