Today's I Ching for David Letterman
The yarrow have been drawn....
|The present is embodied in Hexagram 28 - Ta Kuo (Preponderance of the Great): We see a beam that is weak. Under these conditions, there will be advantage in moving in any direction at all. There will be success.
|The fourth line, undivided, shows a beam curving upwards. There will be good fortune. If the subject of it looks for other help but that of line one, there will be cause for regret.
|The situation is evolving slowly, and Yin (the passive feminine force) is gaining ground.
|The future is embodied in Hexagram 48 - Ching (The Well): We think of how the site of a town may be changed, while the fashion of its wells undergoes no change. The water of a well never disappears but never receives any great increase, and those who come and those who go can draw and enjoy the benefit. If the drawing has nearly been accomplished, but before the rope has quite reached the water the bucket is broken, this is evil.
|The things most apparent, those above and in front, are embodied by the upper trigram Tui (Lake), which is transforming into K'an (Water). As part of this process, joy, pleasure, and attraction are giving way to danger and the unknown.
|The things least apparent, those below and behind, are embodied by the lower trigram Sun (Wind), which represents penetration and following.
