in case you've just finished sacrificing a sheep and have its liver
laid out neatly on the kitchen table, how do you go about reading
the surface of the liver is divided into zones. These zones are
named Station; Path; Strength; Palace Gate; Well-being; gall-bladder;
Path to the left of the gall-bladder; Finger; Yoke and Increase.
The zones are examined in the order listed. Each zone consists of
its particular feature and the surrounding are, or "land". In the
case of, for example, the "Station," the zone consists of the vertical
crease of the left lobe and its "land."
right side is positive and the left hostile. Any depression or deficiency
of negative value gives an unfavourable omen result when on a right
side and a favourable one on a left side. Right is "your side" (yourself,
house, family and friends, city, country, etc.) Left is the "Enemy's
side" (anyone whose advantage works to your disadvantage). Right
and left can also be interpreted as parts of one person, such as
when you can't decide between two alternatives. It's best if your
side is the larger.
you need to look at the marks on the liver. One is you alone, two
of any feature is often better and shows you and your opposer. Three
of any mark shows the overcoming of opposition. Four marks shows
that you and the opposition are equal, five that the opposer is
stronger, six that you're equal after two encounters and seven shows
the opposition winning.
you're looking for variations of colour. Red indicates a great deal
of energy and power for the side it is on; Green indicates health
for the side it is on, or that it is time to move; Black is a very
serious message, death, or an indication to stay put; White is an
indication of famine or disease; it is never good.
head, middle and base of the liver refer to near, less near and
zone should then be examined in detail. There isn't space here to
go into the meaning of all the zones in detail but they cover things
such as the course you are taking, likely success, ulterior motives
and secret desires - damage in that zone can mean that a secret
has been leaked. The state of the gall bladder shows you in your
public capacity and your relationship with those who advise you.
marks also have specific meanings. For instance, a patch of any
colour shows a drying up of resources. A hole shows a great loss
