Mirror grouping 37.3-42.3-38.4-41.4

About having strong structures

  37.3 yang: The family people scold with severity. There is regret and discipline. Auspicious. Women and children giggle-giggle. Ends in distress.
  Create and keep a strong stucture.

 

  42.3 yin: Increase benefits by pitfall matters. Without fault. Be true, move central, report to the prince using a seal.
  Knowing disaster creates a strong character. Time of crisis opens possibilities.

Lines 37.3 and 42.3 are each others fanyao, like views on the same landscape but from a different side. Asking for different actions.
See Mirror-index for explanation.

  38.4 yang: Squinting and alone. Meeting an eminent man. Associating truthfully, danger. Without fault.
  Only when true to your own values you meet others who are also true.

 

  41.4 yin: Decreasing one's afflictions, and sending the message swiftly brings joy. No fault.
  Discarding everything which has no value creates a mind which others appreciate.

Lines 38.4 and 41.4 are each others fanyao, like views on the same landscape but from a different side. Asking for different (and complementary) actions.

Lines 37.3 and 38.4 and also 41.4 and 42.3 are each others qianyao (upside-down). Here are similar actions but in different (but complementary) landscapes (context). What was up, outside or mental, is now down, inside or physical.
