Today's I Ching for Paul Newman
The coins have been tossed...
|The present is embodied in Hexagram 45 - Ts'ui (Gathering Together): The king will repair to his ancestral temple. It will be advantageous to meet with the great man. Then there will be progress and success, though the advantage must come through firm correctness. The use of great victims will be conducive to good fortune, and in whatever direction movement is made, it will be advantageous.
|The first (bottommost) line, divided, shows its subject with a sincere desire for union, but unable to carry it out, so that disorder is brought in to the sphere of his union. If he cry out for help to his proper correlate, all at once his tears will give place to smiles. He need not mind the temporary difficulty. As he goes forward, there will be no error.
|The situation is evolving slowly, and Yang (the active masculine force) is gaining ground.
|The future is embodied in Hexagram 17 - Sui (Following): There will be great progress and success, but one must be firm and correct. There will then be no error.
|The things most apparent, those above and in front, are embodied by the upper trigram Tui (Lake), which represents joy, pleasure, and attraction.
|The things least apparent, those below and behind, are embodied by the lower trigram K'un (Earth), which is transforming into Chen (Thunder). As part of this process, docility and receptivity are giving way to movement, initiative, and action.
