Library Resources
1 周月解:
惟一月,既南至,昏昴畢見,日短極,基踐長,微陽動于黃泉,陰降慘于萬物。是月斗柄建子,始昏北指,陽氣虧,草木萌蕩,日月俱起于牽牛之初,右回而行,月周天進一次而與日合宿,日行月一次而周天,厤舍于十有二辰,終則復始,是謂日月權輿。周正歲首,數起于一而成于十,次一為首,其義則然。凡四時成歲,歲有春夏秋冬,各有孟仲季,以名十有二月。月有中氣以著時應,春三月中氣,驚蟄、春分、清明,夏三月中氣,小滿、夏至、大暑,秋三月中氣,處暑、秋分、霜降,冬三月中氣,小雪、冬至、大寒。閏無中氣,斗指兩辰之閒。萬物春生夏長,秋收冬藏,天地之正,四時之極,不易之道,夏數得天,百王所同,其在商湯,用師于夏,除民之災,順天革命,改正朔,變服殊號,一文一質,示不相沿,以建丑之月為正,易民之視,若天時大變,亦一代之事,亦越我周王,致伐于商,改正異械,以垂三統,至於敬授民時,巡守祭享,猶自夏焉,是謂周月,以紀于政。
