Aquarius is called "The Water-Bearer"

Incorrect. It's not the water that's it represents but the one who carries the water

I am insulted. I am an aquarius! How dare you get my symbol wrong?!? Just kidding, but I got it on my first try in just over 30 seconds. Seriously, it's really easy.

yeah the fact that 28% got Aquarius, while 47% got the Centaur, is clear evidence of that.

conversely i would say that's an indication that people don't actually know that he's the water-bearer. he is the water-bearer. either you know that or you don't.

Watercarrier was my first guess. Simple when you know it. I had more trouble with the goat, was guessing "deer" first and then trying to figure out what similar animals there were.

Aquarius is a male. He represents Ganymede, the son of Tros, King of Troy who was stolen by Jupiter to become cup-bearer for the gods.

I agree with more type ins, water bearer and perhaps water carrier. But dont totally agree that it is "evidence". Archer is accepted for centaur and is simply much easier to think of and a more common word than water carrier.

I tried sheep for ram. It should be accepted because a ram is a male sheep.

Then "person" should be acceptable for Virgo.

Aries is the ram due to the ram being stronger..aries traits are couragous ambitous sheep really aren't the zodiac is thinking of the big horn ram that runs the steep rocky terran.. not the mellow sheep on Ireland's green hills or sheep at fair but a strong leader to lead the first house of zodiac

It's a half-goat / half-fish. You can't make this stuff up:

Actually, figuring out what word should follow water is more difficult than you're making it out to be. I'm quite knowledgable on the zodiac & "water carrier" & "water pourer" were terms I had heard before. "Water bearer" was not.

you guys wanna know bout the sea goat. heres how I heard the story.... when typhoeus (or typhon) went to destroy mount Olympus he ripped out Zeus's tendons (gross) and when zeus was completely helpless 2 gods came to help, Hermes and Aegipan (satyr god) anyway to escape typhoeus he turned into a sea goat (which I don't think is a real thing lol) and hid from typheous. The End :)

As soon as this quiz popped up under random selection, so did a banner ad for astrology readings, with all the symbols in it. Helpful, but not if you don't want to cheat!

I think you might reasonably allow 'girl' for 'maiden'.

but girl does not mean virgin. Otherwise you might aswell ask for grandmother to be accepted.

The astrology you read in magazines or you see on the ad above is a load of CRAP; it isn’t astrology. The REAL stuff is accurate and works, every birth chart I read has matched the person perfectly. All the ‘evidence’ scientist have against astrology can so easily be explained. Astrology is real and works.

well if you know a bit of latin, the quiz basically resolves in translating the latin words into english ones, with the exception of Sagittarius which actually just means "arrow-thrower". This also applies to aquarius.
