The Witness of the Stars by: E. W Bullinger
Aquarius (the Water Bearer)
The Atonement being made, the blessings have been procured, and now they can be bestowed and poured forth upon the Redeemed. This is the truth, whether we think of Abel's lamb, of patriarchal sacrifices, the offerings under the Law, or of that great Sacrifice of which they all testified. They all with one voice tell us that atonement made is the only foundation of blessing.
This was pictured and foreshown in the heavens from the beginning, by a man pouring forth water from an urn which seems to have an inexhaustible supply, and which flows forth downwards into the mouth of a fish, which receives it and drinks it all up.
This agrees with its other names--Hebrew, Deli, the water-urn, or bucket (as in Numbers 24:7); the Arabic Delu is the same. There are 108 stars in this Sign, four of which are of the 3rd magnitude. Their names, as far as they have come down to us, are significant.
The star a (in the right shoulder) is called Sa'ad al Melik, which means The record of the pouring forth. The star b (in the other shoulder) is called Saad al Sund, who goeth and returneth, or the pourer out. The bright star d (in the lower part of the right leg) is well-known today by its Hebrew name Scheat, which means who goeth and returneth.
The bright star in the urn has an Egyptian name--Mon or Meon, which means simply an urn. Aquarius is the modern Latin name by which the sign is known. It has the same meaning, the pourer forth of water.
This is the meaning of the Sign. The MAN Christ Jesus, who was humbled in death will yet be seen to be the pourer forth of every blessing. Physically pouring forth literal waters, removing the curse, and turning this world into a paradise:
"Making her wilderness like Eden,
And her desert like the garden of the LORD." Isaiah 51:3
And morally pouring forth His Spirit in such abundance as to fill the whole earth with peace, and blessing, and glory, "as the waters cover the sea."
Upon Israel restored He will pour out His blessing. They will be sprinkled with clean water, and possess a new heart and a new spirit (Eze 36:24-28; Joel 2:28-32).
