homeward bound





Danger ahead. Cross the water but do not rush ahead. Auspicious for the persistent.

The Lines (base to top)

Waiting at the temple gates
Waiting on a sandy beach
Waiting in the filthy muck
Waiting in a gush of blood
Waiting for fine food and wine
Waiting in the underground


Water over heaven. Don't understand the lines to mean you shouldn't act; rather, prepare, be true to the plan, bide your time, and act at the proper moment.
