The mirror of 35.2-36.5-63.5-64.2

About finding the best action in a situation.

 

 35.2 Then advancing, then anxious. Determination auspicious. Receiving this protection blessing from one's ancestress.
 Use care, use your wits, and most of all your inner wisdom.

 

 36.5 Ji-Zi's Brightness Hiding. Fruitful to determine.
 The world can be hostile. Reckon with that, be careful with every action.

 

 63.5 The Eastern neighbor slaughters an ox. Nothing compared to the Western neighbor's Yue offering in really receiving his blessing.
 Acting in a sincere way and within your abilities will be more successful than a big gesture.

 

 64.2 Dragging one's wheels. Determination auspicious.
 Don't rush ahead, give yourself time to find the best way.

The theme of this mirror: finding the action which is the best fit to the situation, reckoning with all factors of it.

Mirrors 35.2 and 05.2 are complementary

(all yang lines of Mirror 35.2 are yin lines in Mirror 05.2 and vv)

Mirror 35.2 is about finding the best action in a situation.
Mirror 05.2 is about knowing the situation before acting.
