Today's I Ching for Nellie McKay
The coins have been tossed...
|The present is embodied in Hexagram 62 - Hsiao Kuo (Preponderance of the Small): In these circumstances which it implies, there will be progress and attainment, but it will be advantageous to be firm and correct. Action may be taken in small affairs, but not in great affairs. Like the notes that come down from a bird on the wing, to descend is better than to ascend. There will, in this way, be great good fortune.|
|The fifth line, divided, suggests dense clouds, but no rain, coming from our borders in the west. It also shows the prince shooting his arrow, and taking the bird in a cave.|
|The situation is evolving slowly, and Yang (the active masculine force) is gaining ground.|
|The future is embodied in Hexagram 31 - Hsien (Influence): On the fulfillment of the conditions implied here, there will be a free course and success. Its advantage will depend on being firm and correct, as in marrying a young lady. There will be good fortune.|
|The things most apparent, those above and in front, are embodied by the upper trigram Chen (Thunder), which is transforming into Tui (Lake). As part of this process, movement, initiative, and action are giving way to joy, pleasure, and attraction.|
|The things least apparent, those below and behind, are embodied by the lower trigram Ken (Mountain), which represents stillness and obstruction.|
