Sign of Aquarius Aquarius

Aquarius, the water bearer, symbolizes carrying the water of the Word (the Gospel) to evangelize the world (Matt 28:19-20; Mk 16:15; Lk 24:46-48; Jn 3:5; 4:7-29; 6:35; 7:37; Acts 10:43; 26:16-18; Rom 1:16; 2 Cor 5:20; Eph 6:15; 2 Ti 4:5).  The water bearer is carrying a jug of water, which is necessary for life.  However, the water symbolizes the Gospel, the good news of Jesus Christ.  Carrying the water symbolizes taking the Gospel to others, and pouring the water symbolizes communication of the Gospel.  Drinking the water symbolizes believing, or faith.  And washing with water symbolizes sanctification or purification.  Aquarius is also associated with water in general, including lakes, rivers, streams, and seas.  It is the female counterpart of the land, which corresponds to the male.

Aquarius corresponds to the Tribe of Zebulun (Gen 49:13).

"Zebulun shall dwell toward the seashore;
And himself toward the coast of ships,
His side toward Sidon. (Genesis 49:13).
The Gospel

The Gospel is the Good News of Jesus Christ, who came into the world and paid for Salvation so that all who believe in Him can have Eternal Life (Rom 1:16; 1 Cor 1:18, 24; 15:3-4).

1 Corinthians 15:3-4
3 For I delivered to you in the order of first importance what I have already received, that Christ died as a substitute for our sins according to the Scriptures,
4 and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures,
The Good News is that Jesus Christ paid for our sins, and we can have Eternal Life by believing in Him (John 3:16).  Salvation is through faith alone in Jesus Christ alone (Jn 3:16; Acts 4:12; 16:31).

Drinking

When Jesus Christ encountered the Samaritan woman at the well, He used the drinking analogy to give her the Gospel (John 4:7-27).

Jesus answered and said to her, "If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, 'Give Me a drink,' you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water." (John 4:10, NAS)
Drinking water symbolizes believing the communicated Word of the Gospel for Salvation.
John 4:13-14, NAS
13 Jesus answered and said to her, "Everyone who drinks of this water shall thirst again 14 but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall become in him a well of water springing up to Eternal Life."
The woman believed in Jesus Christ and then went out to give the Gospel to the rest of the town (John 4:28-29).

Sanctification

Sanctification means to be set apart to God as Holy.  That can only occur when our sins are forgiven.  Forgiveness of sins is only possible through Salvation.  The water of Aquarius symbolizes Sanctification.

Jesus answered, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a person is born out from the source of water and the Spirit, he is not able to enter the Kingdom of God. (John 3:5, NAS)
Water in the Laver of the Tabernacle symbolized Positional Sanctification.  Washing in the water symbolized Positional Sanctification, or being saved.  Being born from the source of water refers to the New Birth of spiritual regeneration by the Holy Spirit,  Being born from the source of the Spirit refers to the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, which enters a person into union with Christ at Salvation.

Salvation

The water of the Noahic Flood destroyed the unbelievers but saved the believers.  Thus, Aquarius can symbolize being saved from the deluge (1 Pet 3:20).  The Savior Planet in Aquarius symbolizes salvation from the Flood.

Baptism of the Holy Spirit

Being saved from the Flood symbolizes the Baptism of the Holy Spirit (1 Pet 3:21).  Thus, the Savior Planet in Aquarius can also symbolize the Baptism of the Holy Spirit in which the Holy Spirit enters the believer into union with Christ at Salvation.

Witnesses

Those who carry the Gospel are called witnesses, and communication of the Gospel to others is called witnessing (Jn 15:27; Acts 1:8; 22:15; 1 Jn 1:2; 4:14; Rev 11:3; 17:6).  Those who carry the Gospel are witnesses of Jesus Christ.  Jesus sent out seventy pairs (two by two) ahead of Him to the cities (Luke 10:1).  A pair symbolizes a witness.  At the beginning of the Church Age, Jesus called his disciples, "My witnesses" (Acts 1:8).

"But you will receive power after the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be My witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and Samaria, and even to the remotest parts of the Earth." (Acts 1:8)
Witnessing associated with Aquarius is not to be confused with Gemini, which symbolizes a witness.  Aquarius is associated with the function of witnessing for Christ in evangelism.

An angelic herald will present the gospel in the Tribulation (Rev 14:6-7).

Showers of Blessing

Aquarius also symbolizes showers of blessing from Heaven from the Good News of Salvation through faith in Christ (Isa. 55:1, 10-11; Ezek 34:26; Mal 3:10; Eph. 1:3).  Just as rain showers refresh the Earth and sustain plant and animal life, spreading the Good News symbolizes God's blessing from Heaven.

Effective Witnessing

Every believer in the Church Age is an ambassador for Christ, who represents Jesus Christ to a lost and dying world.  In order to effectively communicate the Gospel, it must first be understood.  The Gospel is the Good News that Jesus Christ paid for the sins of the world and now Salvation is freely available to all who want it simply by believing in Jesus Christ.  Since sins have already been judged on the Cross, there is no need to bring them up for Salvation.  There is no requirement to confess them, or repent of them, before Salvation.  In fact, even the sins of the unbeliever will not be mentioned at the Great White Throne Judgment.  Unbelievers will be condemned to the Lake of Fire, not because of their sins, but because of lack of faith in Jesus Christ.

Father Must Draw

God the Father is looking out for the unbeliever and gives everyone a fair shake.  When the time is right, the Father will draw the unbeliever to Salvation.

No one is able to come to me unless the Father who sent Me draws him, and I will raise him up on the last day. (Jn 6:44)
If the individual is positive and wants to be saved at God consciousness, then God will provide the Gospel, so that he can make his decision to believe in Jesus Christ and be saved.  God uses Christians to witness, which is the whole meaning of Aquarius.  However, no one will be saved unless the Father or the Son draws him (Jn 6:44, 65; 12:32).

Open Door

God must open the door before the Christian can effectively give the Gospel to the unbeliever (Ex 14:21; Josh 3:16; Acts 14:27; 1 Cor 16:9; 2 Cor 2:12; Col 4:3; Rev 3:7-8).  The work of Salvation is Spiritual, and it won't happen unless God is directing it.  Therefore, the Christian must wait for an open door before giving the Gospel.  The open door will be recognized by the unbeliever expressing his thoughts about God or eternity, or in some way giving a hint that he is searching for answers about a relationship with God.  When the door is open, the Christian should present the Gospel clearly and then leave the person alone to make his own decision in the privacy of his own soul.  He should not be pressured.

Keys of Heaven

Jesus Christ gave the keys of Heaven to his disciples (Matt 16:19; 18:18; John 20:23).

I shall give you the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven; and whatsoever you shall bind on Earth, will have been bound in Heaven; and whatsoever you shall loose on Earth, will have been loosed in Heaven." (Matt 16:19)
Having "the keys to the  Kingdom of Heaven" simply meant that the disciples had the privilege of giving the Gospel.  For those who believed in Jesus Christ, Heaven would be opened.  They would go to Heaven.  God would honor the decision of the new believer, who heard the Gospel from a disciple.  For those who rejected the Gospel, Heaven would be closed.  They would go to Hades.  So, having the keys to Heaven meant the disciples could give the Gospel, and God would honor His Word to accept those who believed and reject all others.  It was not some special power reserved for a select group of clergy.

"Whatsoever you shall bind on Earth" refers to those who reject the Gospel.  "Will have been bound in Heaven" refers to those left under bondage to sin after rejecting the Gospel.  Their sins will not be forgiven. "Whatsoever you shall loose on Earth," refers to the sins of those who believe the Gospel.  "Will have been loosed in Heaven" means forgiveness of sins and freedom from bondage to sin after believing the Gospel.

Stick with the Gospel

Only the Gospel can save an unbeliever.  His problem is that he is lost.  Therefore, it is important for the Christian to stick with the Gospel and not be sidetracked by anything else.  Trying to help the unbeliever in various ways or engaging in arguments about the Bible are useless.  There is nothing more important to the unbeliever than the issue of the Gospel of Jesus Christ (Jn 14:17; 1 Cor 1:18, 21, 23, 25; 2:2, 14).  What he thinks of Christ will determine his eternal destiny.

Blessings Poured Out from Heaven

Aquarius also symbolizes the blessings poured out upon the Kingdom of Israel (Nu 24:7; Deut 28:12; Mal 3:10).  It refers to the blessing poured out from Heaven upon believers of Israel and future dispensations (Psa 1:3; Jer 17:7-8).  It refers to blessing poured out upon Church Age believers (Eph 1:3, 23; 4:10).  And it refers to the blessings of the Word poured out in the Millennium (Isa 11:9; 32:1-2; 33:21; 35:1, 6; 41:18; 51:3; 44:3-4; Joel 2:28-29).

In the Millennium:

  1.  "The earth will be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea" (Isa 11:9).
  2.  Everyone will be like "steams of water in a dry place" (Isa 32:1-2)
  3.  Jerusalem will be an impregnable seaport (Isa 33:21)
  4.  Streams of water will flow in the desert, and it will bloom (Isa 35:1, 6; 41:18; 51:3).
  5.  The Holy Spirit and blessings will be poured out on all mankind like streams of water (Isa 44:3-4; Joel 2:28-29).

Sun in Aquarius

The Sun in Aquarius symbolizes "the glorious Gospel of the blessed God" (1 Timothy 1:11).  It symbolizes the glorious Gospel (Isa 52:7; 2 Cor 4:6).  The Sun symbolizes Jesus Christ (Psalm 19:4-6).  However, Satan's counterfeit is that he is the Sun god.  He  wanted to "be like the Most High" (Isaiah 14:14).  In Satan's counterfeit religion, Aquarius symbolizes the cosmic evangelist who is duped by the devil (2 Cor 4:3-4; 11:4; Gal 1:6-9).  The Sun in Aquarius can alternatively symbolize an antichrist, who opposes Christ and spreads the devil's lie (1 Jn 2:18, 22; 4:3; 2 Jn 1:7), or the Antichrist of the Tribulation (2 Thess 2:1-12; Rev 12-13).

Star Gospel Nearby Constellations

Constellations around Aquarius contribute to a fuller meaning in the Star Gospel.1   The nearby constellations include:
  1. Pisces Australis - the southern fish (in the water from the water bearer) - symbolizes evangelism (Matt 13:47-48; Mk 1:17; Jn 21:3-11, Greek, ijcquv" (ichthus) = fish).
  2. Pegasus - White Horse - symbolizes the hinny that Jesus Christ rode in the First Advent (Zech 9:9; Matt. 21:5-11), and His White Horse at the Second Advent (Rev. 19:11, 19, 21).  Pegasus is the winged horse from Greek mythology; pegasus = spring of water.
  3. Cygnus - the swan - sign of the Cross on the wing (Rom. 1:16; 1 Cor. 1:18; 2:2).

  4. The trumpeter swan represents the Cross.  It flies with its head and legs extended to make the sign of the cross.  This is similar to the Kite configuration in astrology (Jn 12:32).

Application

The implications of Aquarius are far reaching, since it is associated with water, which is quite common.  According to the Bible, water not only exists on the Earth and in the atmosphere, but it also symbolically exists in Heaven.  It may be associated with the sea, Zebulun, and Florida.  Specific applications are associated with individual planets in Aquarius (ref. Meaning of Planets in Signs).

Aquarius may be associated with traveling to take the Gospel, especially traveling over the sea.  It may be associated with ships.  But it may also be associated with transitions into the air, such as a launch or the Resurrection.  It may be associated with the Tower of Babel, whose top reached into heaven, and it may be associated with transitions and paradigm shifts.  It may be associated with a flood, the Prostitute of Babylon who sits on the waters, or even a duck.  Lakes, streams, fountains, or even plumbing may be associated with Aquarius.
