Februari 1, 2020


Several old versions of the character 'ma', horse.

牝馬
  "Female - horse", a mare.
The mare is mentioned in the invocation (the gua poem) of hexagram 2. An invocation is a call to the spirits to receive their assistance, and the mare is important for human affairs to go well.

 

利牝馬之貞
  "Profit female horse its divination". The mare lives on the earth, she loves the wide space, can be wild and fast, but she can also adjust to demands or needs.

She is a symbol of life on earth, enjoying creation and filling nature with her own creatures. Every year one or two new foals who run allong with the herd within a day.
