Spur: the energy of the opening of true nature. In humans, it is the kick held in the ankle, which enables people to walk or run, or to transfer this energy to horses. In cocks, it is the energy which allows a cock to achieve its full nature as a fighter and a lover, and to transfer this excitement to others. In apples, it is the short fruiting branch which enables wood to flower and bring forth apples and seed.
