My view on this subject is :
Taking Month (branch) as a Commander of 30 days (branches ) ..
A. For Month subduing/ hurting / clashing and ---- Day producing / Supporting
- This looks like an example of a cloudy weather all Month long but some days occasionally there's sunlight... (Inside this bad condition / situation .. there is a drop of Hope / or opportunity or chance for the better - [swift happenings but not last long ] ).
B. For Month Producing supporting and ------ Day clashing / hurting / insulting.
- This like as a sunny Month with occasionally some days with clouds ... the rest explanation is yours
