homeward bound




Pure yang, the male principle. The supreme, the fundamental, the activating force. It is auspicious.

The Lines (base to top, plus overall conclusion)

Dragon swims in deep water
Dragon dances on the field
Prince stays alert through day and night
Dragon leaps above the waves
Dragon hovers in the sky
At last dragon flies away
Headless dragons everywhere


Heaven over heaven.

Dragon is male and bright, tiger is female, dark. Pure yang cannot be sustained, and the dragons lose their heads.

Ride the dragon. Be strong. Ride the change.
