The Man's journey through the Winds
The Man in the Winds of Darkness
Man's impulse, to the extreme, is to change the purpose of the Heavens.
We see him in this hexagram, ignorant of his own limitations, assailing
the Spirits of the Night, supported by momentarily favorable circumstances
and his abundant energy.
This hexagram shows us what happens when the masculine element (dominant,
intense, implosive) dominates the Earth and the Wanderer; the intensity
of this combination can make the Man believe that he can conquer even
the celestial cycles, and leaps into the night with the courage of
those who believe they see. What can be expected from a picture such
Keys: there are limits, and time is one. It is not enough to be
in a state of maximum strength and that the exterior conditions are
totally favorable; the celestial cycles are still more important.
