the source cup

The MOON eclipses the Sun today.

Yesterday I tossed some coins with the book of changes (I Ching)...wIsdom teaCHINGs:

34. the power of the great

34.  Ta Chuang - The Power of the Great

            above     Chên   The Arousing, Thunder          
            below     Ch'ien The Creative, Heaven
     The Judgement

          The Power of the Great. Perseverance furthers.

     The Image

          Thunder in heaven above:
          The image of the Power of the Great.
          Thus the superior man does not tread upon paths
          That do not accord with established order.

     The Lines

          Nine at the beginning means:
          Power in the toes.
          Continuing brings misfortune.
          This is certainly true.

50. the cauldron
 50.  Ting - The Caldron
          above     Li     The Clinging, Flame        
          below     Sun    The Gentle, Wind       

     The Judgement

          The Caldron. Supreme good fortune.

     The Image

          Fire over wood:
          The image of the Caldron.
          Thus the superior man consolidates his fate
          By making his position correct.
"Like the skull, a symbol of the receptacle of the forces of transmutation and germination...
But whereas the skull, because of its vaulted shape, signifies the higher, sublimated and spiritual aspects
of the process, the cauldron, being open at the top, has the opposite meaning of the baser forces of nature.
Most of the mythic cauldrons which figure in Celtic tradition are located at the bottom of the sea or of lakes
(indicating that the respective symbolisms of the cauldron and of water have coalesced, and that they both
relate to the general symbolism of water, which is the vehicle of life..." ~ A Dictionary of Symbols, J.E. Cirlot

Directly after the I Ching experience, I went to an acupuncture appointment, where the treatment concentrated on points in my toes - which my acupuncturist tells me is a key point of the Spleen Qi source.

pisces rules the feets

qoph=back of the head where the cerebellum and medulla oblongata reside, "the mouth of god", monkey (primitive), eye of the needle (the moon, PISCES) sleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep=dreams and transformation.

5After that he poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded. 6Then cometh he to Simon Peter: and Peter saith unto him, Lord, dost thou wash my feet? 7Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter. 8Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me. 9Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but alsomy hands and my head. 10Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all.
