Xiao xu

The gua hexagram as it is in the I Ching

 

The Chinese Element to which it corresponds

 Wood

The name of the upper Trigram

 Wind

The name of the lower Trigram

 Heaven

The description of the symbol as it is given in the I-Ching

Wind blows in the sky

An image of accumulating nourishment little by little

The superior person polishes and beautifies his cultural qualities

 

Comment

This hexagram is actually about what to do when there is too much intellect , thus the hexagram describes the state in which there is too much left brain activity and not enough right brain.

It thus covers both the  need for Beauty, Art and Music, but also covers to a certain extent the need for Relaxation.
