Zhuge liang east wind this story has been a household name, people often relish in at one’s leisure. But as long as calm and consider, people can not help but ask, can ZhuGeLiangZhen east wind? If not, then what’s inside this mystery?

actually, & other; East wind & throughout; Entirely zhuge liang to play tricks. Zhuge liang since without tongtian church can, of course, also can’t borrow dongfeng a use. Dongfeng this own, just know, zhuge liang to understand the book, understanding of climate change, and make the most of the small and weak army east wind force of an optimum.

with astronomical in yi jing, there are twelve hexagrams corresponding to the twelve months of the year, every month of the throttle and climate has the corresponding rules to follow, and in accordance with the principle of “the book of changes”. In the various ge is bright east wind, when the time for the lunar October, on the hexagrams kun hexagrams, is pure Yin hexagrams, cathode sun, October the temperature for a few days to recover, so have a Indian summer climate. The various ge is bright east wind, is to use the climate conditions. The warship chain up, also from his astronomical knowledge, and climate. Ship chain is advantageous to the water, just afraid of fire. But jun water army in the upper Yangtze river, is located in the northwest, dongwu water army in downstream, located in the southeast, the lunar October is winter, northwest wind blowing, soochow lack fire conditions. To this, zhuge liang and zhou yu knew. Therefore, zhou yu’s worry, worry worry hearts that interfered with syncope. So zhuge liang stage, therefore, the east wind. The real reason behind this is zhuge liang according to yi jing, know three days before and after a certain climate, southeast wind will turn. He is rule the day, so affectation east wind, soldiers fire, over cao cao. Cao Caobing defeated red cliff, fled back to the north, I see the book, can not help but laugh. The surprise, asked his defeat, how ridiculous. Cao cao said, I am so much cost, only understand the period of “the book of changes”. This is the lunar October to climate change.

Insects awaken section, thunderbolt, ringing, underground dormant awakening of worm hole, called insects awaken. At this point, the human spirit strong, appropriate to carry out military action. In march, corresponding day Guai divination. Guai hexagrams, sticks to the outside, against the jersey, inside is dry, dry for days. Numbers, according to Yang can finish will all rise. Day is qingming festival, gas is grain rain. The tomb-sweeping day, the day clear air, and the wind blow gently, it is the most pleasant, appropriate forces. April, corresponding to the originality, six hexagram pure Yang, Yang to poles, so very hot in April, the most uncomfortable. Originality of pure Yang, anode Yin is born, so the temperature will drop for a few days of April, may blow a few days before and after the throttle mistral. Day is the beginning, gas is grain buds.

Summer solstice a Yin, raw energy begins to recovery, items is easy to return to moistureproof mildew, the human body needs maintenance. Corresponding tianshan dun hexagrams, June day is a slight heat, gas is great heat, known as the dog days. Because terms like outside is pure Yang, inside are two Yin Yang, Yin qi, in vitro fallen cold heat, surface in the radiation energy, internal energy storage in contraction, people poor appetite, physical strength is quite poor. Section corresponding to the heavens and the earth no divination, July is the beginning of autumn, is the end of heat. At this point, the difference between heaven and earth, all books, reason has said of the autumn wind swept the leaves, and kill the mood was launched, the appropriate implementation of annihilation. Corresponding to view hexagrams wind, August is the millennium, gas is the autumnal equinox. Equinox as the vernal equinox, the climate is suitable, the day is long.
