54 歸妹 Gui MeiMarrying Maiden

In the traditional Chinese society, a young girl (the lower trigram) wedded the oldest son (the upper trigram) in a family ~ however, not as the official wife,  rather as a subordinate to the official wife. Therefore she had to follow the guidance of her husband and behave modestly, with caution and reserve.

This hexagram indicates that mutual affection is the most important principle of all relationships.  One should know where he or she stands and take action only if absolutely necessary, with caution. Any risky or dramatic actions will bring misfortune.c 54 歸妹
