The mirror of 45.2-47.2-46.5-48.5

About using possibilities when they open up. (deference)

 45.2 Being guided is auspicious. Without fault. If sincere it is fruitful to use a Yue-sacrifice.
 If you are true, a union with likemindeds will not take your own will away.

Stay yourself, hold on to your values. 45 Anonymous in a large group or 47 as an individual with a name. In 45 stay high (keep pride), in 47 stay low (modest pride).

 47.2 Confined with food and drink. A seal with scarlet string comes. Present offerings. A rectifying expedition will be a pitfall, avoid faults.
 Life is good but also beset. When recognition comes, then accept it with caution and deference.
Life needs meaning. Hope, work or wait for it but don't force anything.

When Earth changes into Water and vv, your soul and others will meet. A group with a mission and your own wish for a worthy cause can find each other.

 46.5 Determination auspicious. Ascend the stairs.
 The possibility to ascend opens. Use it, step after step.

46 Build up your life yourself, step by step, don't let pride make you rush on.
48 Make use of what is offered to you, don't let pride hold you back.

 48.5 The well is a clear cold spring. Drink.
 The water is there. Use it.

Lines 46.5 and 48.5 are each others fanyao, like views on the same landscape but from a different side, Earth-Water and vv. Asking for different actions.

Lines 45.2 and 46.5 and also 47.2 and 48.5 are each others qianyao (upside-down). Here are similar actions but in different landscapes (complementary contexts).
What was up, outside or mental, is now down, inside or physical.

Mirror groupings 45.2-47.2 and 21.5-25.5 are contrasts
(all yang lines of Mirror 45.2-47.2 are yin lines in Mirror 21.5-25.5 and vv)

Mirror 45.2-47.2 is about using possibilities when they open up.
Mirror 21.5 is about mending this or leaving it to universe.
