Be flexible in your associations, particularly new ones. Enjoy small successes that relate to your immediate situation. Do not overstep. Be wary of projections coming at you from all directions. Obscurity in the particular is better than provoking attack.

#56, line 5, #44
You are a stranger to this situation.
It is your attraction to the exotic that has led you here, but you will move on to a new vista when this one has lost its mystique.
Because much of this environment is foreign to you, you must exercise only the best judgement.
You don’t know the custom here, and it’s too easy to cross a line you don’t know is there.
Because you are the foreigner in this setting, you have no history to acquit you.
Watch, listen, study, contemplate, then step lightly but decisively on.
The traveler kills a pheasant with his first shot.
For the price of one arrow, he has bought himself praise and high office.
You are ignoring a clear and present danger to your well-being.
If this threat emanated from a heavy-handed oppressor, you would see it coming.
But this danger comes to you in the form of a seduction, an amusement, a diversion, an indulgence that is eating away at the fiber of your secure little world.
You are too cocksure.
You underestimate the tribute this dalliance will demand.
