The forces of darkness are on the rise and because of its advance, light retreats, moves aside, so that it won't affect it.
Far from coming from human arbitrariness, the withdrawal speaks about the real powers of nature. When darkness arises, the force of the light withdraws, the appropriate reaction not to waste its energy.
Hexagram 33 (Withdrawal) Wisdom of I Ching: Nature’s withdrawal.
