Conjure Up Clouds With One Turn Of One's Hand And Rain With Another


翻云覆雨
[翻雲覆雨]
fān yún fù yǔ
Conjure up Clouds with One Turn of One’s Hand and Rain with Another

tricksy and inconstant
change one’s mind constantly

For what it’s worth, I feel a bit uncertain about the meanings/translations I’ve found for this one. Some caution with using it might be advisable, especially since there is apparently a possible sexual meaning.
