Today's I Ching for Steven Spielberg
The yarrow have been drawn....
|The present is embodied in Hexagram 33 - Tun (Retreat): Successful progress is indicated, but to a small extent it will still be advantageous to be firm and correct.
|The second line, divided, shows its subject holding his purpose fast, as if by a thong made from the hide of a yellow ox, which cannot be broken.
|The third line, undivided, shows one retiring but bound, to his distress and peril. If he were to deal with his binders as in nourishing a servant or concubine, it would be fortunate for him.
|The fourth line, undivided, shows its subject retiring notwithstanding his likings. In a superior man this will lead to good fortune, but a small man cannot attain to this.
|The fifth line, undivided, shows its subject retiring in an admirable way. With firm correctness there will be good fortune.
|The sixth line, undivided, shows its subject retiring in a noble way. It will be advantageous in every respect.
|The situation is changing rapidly, and Yin (the passive feminine force) is gaining ground.
|The future is embodied in Hexagram 7 - Shih (The Army): With firmness and correctness, and a leader of age and experience, there will be good fortune and no error.
|The things most apparent, those above and in front, are embodied by the upper trigram Chi'en (Heaven), which is transforming into K'un (Earth). As part of this process, strength and creativity are giving way to docility and receptivity.
|The things least apparent, those below and behind, are embodied by the lower trigram Ken (Mountain), which is transforming into K'an (Water). As part of this process, stillness and obstruction are giving way to danger and the unknown.
