Thunder and Wind occur together and strengthen each other.







Perpetuation, success.

No Blame.

Perseverance is favourable.

It is favourable to follow a plan.


Thunder and wind.


A wise man seeks stability and does not go around changing his mind.


This chapter is about the everlasting marriage between the thunder and the wind. For a marriage to be truly long lasting each partner must strengthen the other.

The advice given in this chapter is that situations that will last are favourable. Sudden changes of direction are not favourable at this time.




1) 6 at the start

a) Diving into deep water.
Perseverance brings misfortune.

b) Getting in too deep at the beginning brings misfortune.

Impatience often ruins things that might have turned out well if they had been given time to develop properly. Here it leads to trouble.


2) 9 in 2nd throw

a) Remorse disappears.

b) Able to maintain stability permanently.

This means that you have been unhappy previously but you will become happier due to a stable new situation.


3) 9 in 3rd throw

a) If there is no stability in your way of life you may end up ashamed.
Perseverance brings humiliation.

b) He meets with no toleration.

This is someone who is excitable and superficial; they go in wrong directions, make mistakes, and get themselves into trouble.


4) 9 in 4th throw

a) There are no wild birds in the fields.

b) Not a lasting situation; wild birds come to a quiet place.

This is a situation where you must wait quietly and take a long-term view. Sometimes you may seem to be in the wrong place, or on the wrong path, but here it is just a temporary problem and you only need to be patient.


5) 6 in 5th throw

a) Working to adapt to the ways of the other.
This is good fortune for a wife but misfortune for a husband or a son.

b) A man should not follow his wife.

A man normally has work, or other duties, outside of personal relationships. If a wife decides to follow her husband it is a good thing. However, if a man adapts his life to suit his wife, or his mother, it may not turn out so well.


6) 6 at the top

a) Perpetual excitement. Misfortune.

b) Restlessness achieves nothing.

Some people are always restless and in a hurry. This makes them careless and not thorough. They then rush into things that are best left alone and never complete anything worthwhile.
