Advancing is represented by growth in springtime, when new plant life pushes upward through the earth’s crust. The emphasis is on upward motion, from obscurity to influence, with growth that is supported by adaptability and an absence of obstacles. Constant, flexible growth is the key attribute of a plant pushing upward. This reading suggests a period of promotion and prosperity.
The wise person, in harmony with fate, is sensitive but determined. Make a sincere effort to apply resolute effort against the forces of inertia, bending around obstacles that arise, and good fortune will follow. By remaining tolerant and flexible, you will be able to retain the conscious innocence that best fuels growth and advancement. Willpower and self-control are necessary to manage growth properly, but an inner enthusiasm for life is what drives it.
