Trigram Xùn, the inner blueprint or 'seal'. Attribute: Wind or Wood.
Xùn is a picture of a table with seals on it, the kind which is bestowed to a subject as token of his/her authority to speak and act in the name of a superior.
Fengwu, “wind thing”, is the scenery typical of a place; the atmosphere, the law (core, secret) of things.
Xùn: humble, mild, humble, submissive, insinuating, practice, penetrate, resign (-throne), choose, select, calculate. Wind’s gentleness is also its power: it is relentless, it 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. Xun has a direction, the character also means choosing, and that way it gives things their unique soul. The lord who carries the seal can only act in that vein, he cannot go counter. He 'chooses' his destination.
Your seal is what you really are, your true nature, even going as deep as your species. Xun directs your life in a powerful way, even though it works with gentleness. This gentleness and relentlessness connects it with destiny and fate. You cause a large part of your fate yourself, through your choices and direction, your 'xun'.
When Wind is below or inside, it has to do with your inner blueprint. The forces which shape your mind and body and lay your character into your actions. The way you can influence or be influenced. Your curiosity and your ability to reach others mentally. You can communicate and accommodate without compromising yourself, and you want to know all about yourself and everything else. With Xun you choose your ideas and ideals and beliefs.
When inner Wind is out of balance, it can make you irresolute or the one who always goes counter. You bother about details without seeing the whole. You keep seeking, both inside and outside, without looking at what you find. Nothing is ever good enough.
