If you practise the gardening, or know somebody who practises it, you will include/understand the following example easily: Watering must obey at adapted intervals. The capacity of absorption of the ground and the plants is slow. We have many female words there: water, ground, the plant, growth. But Chinese wisdom enables us to look further into the image. Admittedly, the Earth is pure yin, but water is a yang crossing the yin. It does not know the force of brutal intrusion by the bottom which generates the thunder, nor that authoritative which falls down in top to maintain, the Mountain. The feature yang into full yin is moving. Which hexagram gives us Water on Earth? Solidarity, Union, the Support. Question those which know the plants and read again the hexagram afterwards. My translation or another, it does not matter.
