The spiritus is a very fine and subtle substance, and it was of this which Virgil spoke when he said:
Spiritus intus alit, totamque infusa per artus
mens agitat molem et magno se corpore misect.
It is to attract the spiritus of a particular planet that animals, plants, food, scents, colors, and so on associated with that planet are to be used. The spiritus is borne upon the air and upon the wind, and it is a kind of very fine air and also very fine heat. It is particularly through the rays of the Sun and Jupiter that our spirit “drinks” the spirit of the world.
— Frances A. Yates, “Giordano Bruno and the Hermetic Tradition” (1964)
