The mirror of 43.2-44.5-49.2-50.5
About discerning the truth of a situation.
43.2 Fear, cries. In the evening and night there are weapons. Do not worry.
Worrying is useless. If it is true, then act, if it isn't, then don't.
44.5 Use osier enwrapping a melon. It contains a creation, which comes falling from heaven.
Recognize good things or times and care well for them, they might not repeat themselves.
49.2 On Sì-day, then skinning is correct. Auspicious. No fault.
Doing the right thing is not enough, it also has to be the right moment.
50.5 The vessel has yellow ears, metal rings. Harvest: determination.
When everything is as right as possible, then consult the gods. Not the other way around.
The theme of this mirror: clear up all appearances
