A good pot is a beautiful thing. It is sturdy, reliable, trustworthy, able to withstand abuse and yet supports the creation of amazing things other than itself.
It is the symbol for Aquarius ruled by a lord Shani, Saturn, who represents responsibility, duty, hard work, and perseverence.
What cook doesn’t know the rewarding gleam of a pan after the cleansing ritual of washing dishes?
The pot can be used again and again, selflessly giving of itself once more to the betterment of the whole, just like a Kumbha, Aquarius. And we are all an Aquarius somewhere in our lives.
I am especially fond of Korean old style handmade pots that were hand thrown with a small intentional flaw. They indeed recall the forms of ourselves, never perfect, but perfectly so.
