The Woman's journey through the Winds
The Woman in the Winds of Penumbras
The Woman in the Winds of Penumbra
The Penumbras, which are confusion, are never as dangerous as they
are in the regions of the Wind: in this impetuous area frenzy pushes
its inhabitants toward a determined direction. At a heated moment
it is worse to be confused than to be blind because one may think
he is seeing clearly, and this may lead him to act tremendously erroneous.
However, in this hexagram we se the Woman Wanderer safe from clumsy
actions, keeping herself stable in such an unsure situation.
We see how she is gripped by the events that push her in one direction
and by the confusion of the ideas that push her in the other direction...which
is the right attitude? At times like these, calmness and a mother's
patience may be the best counselor. If the Wanderer is conscious of
her confusion and waits for better light before taking the next step
she will be doing the right thing.
Keys: to be obligated to act without a clear vision is a very
undesirable situation. One must try at all cost to gain time.
