Elements: Thunder over Thunder

Image: Repeated thunder. Image of Shock. In trembling and fear, the wise man puts his life in order and analyzes himself.

Judgement: The shock brings success. The shock is terrifying for a hundred miles and it doesn’t let fall the sacrificial chalice and spoon.

Interpretation: Chen is related to fear and comes when you need to be jolted out of complacency. Chen advices you to analyze all aspects of life and see where errors have been made or flaws exist and how to deal with them. This analyze should be done conscientiously and it will help you become stronger and wiser period through during this period. Don’t go back to your old habits. It tells you how to deal with a crisis. Remember that courage itself is not a lack of fear, but the willingness to face fear.
