And a Woman will Encircle a Male

In Yirmiyahu 31:21, the second half of the verse is as follows:

כי ברא ה' חדשה בארץ, נקבה תסובב גבר
For Hashem has created something new in the land, a woman encircles a man. 

This, to me, seems  to be a remez for the nesirah, when Nukva comes around to the front side of Z"A.

From One Trouble to Another

המן בן המדתא האגגי צרר היהודים in Gematria is 1189.

The decree of Haman to destroy the Jews was in the year 3405 (per our calendar).

3405 - 1189 takes us to the year 2216, the year of Mechirat Yosef.

3405 + (1189 * 2) brings us to 5783.

And for one that would say how could 5783 be bad, the verse in Yirmiyahu applies:
ועת צרה היא ליעקב, וממנה יושע
Which means that the salvation comes davka from within the trouble.
