Capricornus of “life out of death” is our next sign. Although it is not easily recognized in the sky and doesn’t have any bright stars, it is no less meaningful.

Capricornus, symbolized by half goat and half fish, is significant in two ways:

The goat was a sacrificial animal in the old testament, and was mentioned in Leviticus 9:1-3 as a sin offering. In ancient languages other meanings for the constellation was “kid” and “cut off”.


If we look at the star meanings as Al Gedi, “the same”, Daneb Al Gedi, “the sacrifice comes”, Dabih, “the sacrifice slain”, its definition becomes clearer.

From its portrayal as a dying goat, or sacrifice slain, comes a living fish. The fish, with the advent of christianity, has symbolized the church or its multitudes of people that would come forth.

In Matthew 4:19 Christ called his disciples to be fishers of men. Even in Jeremiah 16:16 it says the Lord will send for many fishers...and they shall fish them.

As we look at Capricornus and its surrounding constellations, meaning, “life out of death”, is distinguished.

From the sacrifice comes atonement for those wishing to be in the redeemed for all eternity.

Aquarius, meaning “blessing out of victory” is no more recognizable then Capricornus, but its symbolism is significant

Consider John 4:14 and see what the correlation to Aquarius could be.

Christ says “whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life”.

Other meanings for Aquarius was “pouring forth of water” and “the place of pouring out”.

In the right shoulder, Sadalmelik, means “the record of the pouring out”, Sadalsud, “he who pours out”, and Sheat, means “who goes and returns”.

Contemplate now this prophecy in Numbers 24:7...

“He shall pour the water out of His buckets, and His seed shall be in many waters”.

Can there be any doubt that the symbol of Aquarius, representing Christ, signifies giving to his chosen ones the living water of life.
