The Sage's journey through the Waters
The Sage in the Waters of Light
This is the second of the four great transmutations: here we see
the Sage Wanderer crossing the region of the Waters, in other words,
transmuting the Land of Waters in the Land of Winds.
In practice, this means that the external chaotic conditions are
put in order by the consulter; it is the right time for him to put
harmony in to those things that concern him. This order is appropriate
when carried out impersonally and for the good of all, it doesn't
matter if it seems rigid or forced.
When the Wanderer is accompanied by the Heavens of Light ("magic
times"), nothing can come between him and his path. The other
3 Wanderers can cause transformations on a smaller level, in themselves
and on the Earth, but superficially and temporarily. The Sage, however,
during these times of Magic not only transforms himself but through
his own transformation the entire Earth transmutes. His mission is
this and no other.
This hexagram tells us of the end of chaos through the intervention
of he who is the vehicle of clarity.
He who sees clearly externally as well as internally can transform
even the persistance of dark into light.
Keys: put the exterior in order, have complete confidence in oneself,
clear up confusion for good.
