The Wind

The next Trigram in the I Ching is the “WIND.” Planting seeds and watching them grow, Wind occurs on a range of scales: from thunderstorm flows lasting tens of minutes, to local breezes generated by heating of land surfaces lasting a few hours, to global winds resulting from the difference in absorption of solar energy between the climate zones on Earth.

The wind is what carries and spreads seeds to faraway places. The wind spans the globe. 4 Tree personalities are philosophical, love to learn, and love traveling the world and learning about different cultures. They are on a continual quest to broaden their horizons; they might be considered eternal learners.

Often, 4 Tree individuals go into professions like Teaching and Law, and they make good presenters. 4 Trees are always looking for new ideas and enjoy new activities. They often are the first to look up what Wikipedia says about something they do not know about. They can get bored easily once they feel they have mastered something and quickly go to try something new. 4 Trees make good writers and correspondents.

These individuals focus on what is going on around them and have a keen eye for exposing injustices. Many 4 Tree personalities are notable for offering their insights and opinions. They have compassionate hearts and are curious. Travel and studying cultures fascinate them.

Investigating, looking to see what may be hidden under rocks, makes them tick. Often, 4 Trees make very good lawyers because they cross-examine with ease. Again, looking at the inner and outer personalities combined gives the most insight into this personality and how 4 Trees express themselves.

These individuals can be a turbulent gale wind or a light breeze. Both 3 Tree and 4 Tree personalities are active in the sky, as depicted in the active movement of the wind and changing weather.
