Today's I Ching for Dick Cheney
The yarrow have been drawn....
|The present is embodied in Hexagram 50 - Ting (The Caldron): There is an intimation of great progress and success.
|The second line, undivided, shows the cauldron with things to be cooked in it. If its subject can say, "My enemy dislikes me, but he cannot approach me", there will be good fortune.
|The third line, undivided, shows the cauldron with the places of its ears changed. The progress of its subject is thus stopped. The fat flesh of the pheasant which is in the cauldron will not be eaten, but the genial rain will come, and the grounds for repentance will disappear. There will be good fortune in the end.
|The situation is shifting, and Yin (the passive feminine force) is gaining ground.
|The future is embodied in Hexagram 35 - Chin (Progress): We see a prince who secures the tranquility of the people, and is presented on that account with numerous horses by the king. Three times in a day he is received at interviews.
|The things most apparent, those above and in front, are embodied by the upper trigram Li (Fire), which represents brightness and warmth.
|The things least apparent, those below and behind, are embodied by the lower trigram Sun (Wind), which is transforming into K'un (Earth). As part of this process, penetration and following are giving way to docility and receptivity.
