Trigram Xun, Wind or Wood. The name is a picture of a table with seals on it, the kind which is bestowed to a subject as token of his authority to speak and act in the name of a superior. Humble, yield, mild, submissive, insinuating, penetrate, resign (-throne), calculate. Wind’s gentleness and submissiveness is also its power: it is relentless, can penetrate through tiny cracks, taking its time. Wind knows no boundaries, often works invisibly in the background. It is the movement of the mind, which can inspire or destroy, create or obsess.
When Wind is above or outside, you are a good strategist. Even when your actions seem just small insignificant steps, they add up to lasting and sometimes big results. Don’t try to make big gestures, your strength is your perseverance, gentle but thorough.
When Wind outside is out of balance, you cannot make reality of ideas, you are curious without implementing the information, you cannot follow through. You exaggerate balancing, making things topple over.The atmosphere can be overwhelming and make you run away.
