The mirror of 05.2-06.5-63.2-64.5

About thinking (or even better knowing and seeing) before acting

 

 5.2 Waiting on the sandbank. There is some talk. In the end auspicious.
 A little delay on the road saves one from rash mistakes.

 

 6.5 Contending. Fundamental auspiciousness.
 Fighting only makes sense when you have a very good insight in all of it.

 

 63.2 A wife losing her veil (- of the carriage?). Do not pursue it. The seventh day you acquire it.
 Panic is a bad master. Many things solve themselves when you wait a bit.

 

 64.5 Determination auspicious. Without regret. The light of the noble man has truth. Auspicious.
 Discerning possibilities and letting or helping them develop is the basis of creativity.

 

The theme of this mirror: refrain from action until you know what you're doing and you know all about the situation.

Mirrors 05.2 and 35.2 are complementary

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

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