Someone at a Rainbow Gathering gave me this lizard carved out of iridescent labrodorite after I gave them an I Ching reading.
The "I" of I Ching means lizard. "Ching" is generic for "book," as in the "Tao Te Ching." Some scholars believe that the lizard the ancient Chinese had in mind was the chameleon, which is able to change its color to match its environment. Since the I Ching is the "Book of Changes," the chameleon can be seen as the totem animal of the changeling principle, and of one who is able to morph, mutate and adapt to a rapidly changing world.
