Eridanus April 1st thru April 11th Key-Word…Exaltation Spiritual Text… “The Fountain of Immortal Life Springs From Man’s Emotional Nature; the Vibrations of Exalted Love having a Rate Sufficiently Frequent to Affect Spiritual Substance and Build a Spiritual Body.” Story… The Fountain of Eternal Youth The significance of the Leo-decanate of Aries is clearly set forth in the second verse of the Bible. The land can bring forth only when united to water, so in the story of creation, as soon as heaven and earth were manifest, the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. That is, water is used immediately, even while the earth was without form and void, to symbolize the medium or agent, through which the Spirit of God accomplished His purpose. In human life, what has the wave like motion of water and is as essential as water is to parched earth, for its production? The zodiac suggests a clue. The starry river (deep, strong and ample wide) pictures a decanate whose sub-influence Leo, rules enjoyment, love and the production and care of children, suggesting the river is affected by all these things. Emotion is the single most characteristic factor common to these activities. Emotion is the Key-word for the watery signs, and water, from time immemorial, has been used as the universal symbol of those mental states which cause and carry a ripple through the nervous system, just as the surface of a pond is stirred by a summer breeze…or the exalted Spirit of God moving upon the waters.
