  Zhou Dynasty Summary
In the Chinese historical tradition, the rulers of the Zhou displaced the Shang and legitimized their rule by invoking the Mandate of Heaven, the notion that the ruler (the "son of heaven") governed by divine right (granted by the Supreme God of Heaven) but that his dethronement would prove that he had lost the mandate.
In the West, the Zhou period is often described as feudal because the Zhou's early rule invites comparison with medieval rule in Europe.
The queen's son Ji Yijiu was proclaimed the new king by the nobles from the states of Zheng, Lü, Qin and the Marquess of Shen.

 Yijing Dao - Aleister Crowley's Yi King
But 'A Beastly Book of Changes' is in fact devoted to the commentaries on the Yi by a man who not only claimed to be Ge Yuan's 20th century incarnation but also the Beast of Revelation and the prophet of a new aeon.

It becomes obvious fairly quickly that the editor is not a Yi specialist, and she relies on Cyrille Javary for historical background material on the Yi.

Translated from the Bamboo Annals, the key passage for this team was: "During the first year of the reign of King Yi, in the first month of spring, the sun rose twice at Zheng." Most probably, this described a total eclipse of the sun occurring just at sunrise.
