The mirror of 31.3-32.4-45.3-46.4

About thinking before doing.

 31.3: Affect one's thigh. Holding in the hand one's follower. To proceed: Distress.
 Everything you do affects the other affects you affects the other... So watch your knee-jerk reactions.

 

 32.4: Fields without wildfowl.
 Think and look before you march out.

 

 45.3: Then gathering, then moaning. No ground for fruitfulness. To proceed is without fault. Small distress.
 Be careful with small reactions, they make the atmosphere. Try to mend faults but above all, go on.

 

 46.4: The king brings a sacrifice at Mount Qi. Auspicious. Without fault.
 Prepare for what you're going to do or say. Involve your spirits and intuition.

The theme of this mirror: do you think before you do?

Mirrors 31.3 and 25.4 are complementary

(all yang lines of Mirror 31.3 are yin lines in Mirror 25.4 and vv)

Mirror 31.3 is about thinking before doing.
Mirror 25.4 is about not just relying on yourself alone.
