The power of gathering together is represented by a rally, where each individual’s strength is magnified by the power of the community. History has shown that mass movements can bring about stable, ordered and durable conditions for the better. This reading may be pointing to an auspicious time for large undertakings. The guiding force of a shared vision is essential to align the forces of unity and keep them advancing toward a common goal.
Another image is that of a lake filling with water. Just as the fullness of the lake can bring good fortune to all in its realm, it can also overflow, leading to calamity. In a time of gathering together, it is essential that precautions against unforeseen danger be considered along with efforts to advance the common good along a clearly charted course. Much of human misfortune comes from unexpected events for which we are ill prepared. When gathered together with others, we are more powerful and, in some ways, also more vulnerable.
Any time of gathering together in unity is a time of potential greatness, which can be positive and negative. Everything is magnified when masses of people join together for a single purpose. When many people unite behind a single goal or strong vision, it is wise to take personal precautions, and to protect your reasonable self-interests, because these can easily be lost in the melee of the crowd.
