96 月令:
仲冬之月,日在斗,昏东壁中,旦轸中。其日壬癸。其帝颛顼,其神玄冥。其虫介。其音羽,律中黄锺。其数六。其味咸,其臭朽。其祀行,祭先肾。
Yue Ling:
In the second month of winter the sun is in Dou, the constellation culminating at dusk being the eastern Bi, and that culminating at dawn Zhen. Its days are ren and gui. Its divine ruler is Zhuan-xu, and the (attending) spirit is Xuan-ming. Its creatures are the shell-covered. Its musical note is Yu, and its pitch-tube is Huang Zhong. Its number is six. Its taste is salt. Its smell is that of things that are rotten. Its sacrifice is that at (the altar of) the path, and of the parts of the victim the kidneys have the foremost place.
