The Energies of the 5th Hexagram: Susanoo-no-Mikoto

Wafubeh! Under the Sign of Watatsumi 18,006 is Susanoo of Water, or the 5th Hexagram called Xu, sometimes rendered Hsu. In the Yi Jing Apocrypha of Genghis Khan, it states the following in regards to the 5th Hexagram:

“(Phe) Levitation of Water or clouds appearing in Heaven, (Tuu) is an opportunity to revitalize the Soul (Nzu) by the enjoyment of life itself.”

The traditional rendering of the 5th Hexagram is Hsu or waiting and nourishment. The idea is to avoid being too anxious, as there may be a danger when things are undertaken in rush. This can be seen by the Vasuh numerical sentence associated with the hexagram Phe-Tuu-Nzu. Phe represents the quality of emotions and there use in triggering a situation. In this case, the Vasuh letter Phe is in the position of the past, being the first numeric letter of the grouping. This would imply that the anxiousness referred to is about anxieties of the past and not allowing these things to intoxicate us. Since Tuu is in the center of this numeric sentence, which is the position of the past, one’s frustration over the past can be negated by waiting and exercising stillness.

Nzu is the outcome of the wisdom of the past and present conditions combined. This means that Nizu provided by the 5th Hexagram, which would indicate not only protection but a healing of the mind. It is interesting to note that the expression “Water appearing in Heaven” is also found in the text Ame-no-Ukihashi on page 47 where we see the first form as relating to stillness and the Soul of Fire.

Ironically, the 5th Hexagram is associated with Susanoo-no-Mikoto the storm deity. Susanoo is a deity of the crossroads and compares greatly with DinGir Enki, as both are deities of the sea and semen We often find that deities of the crossroads are mistaken as trickster energies when in fact it is their role to reveal the full circle of what fate has to offer. Although logic and reasoning play an important part in the philosophies of modern man, most of what we see in the world before us is a result of emotional haste, not logic. It is important that we weigh our thoughts and emotions before rushing into action when the sign of the 5th Hexagram surfaces.
