Today's I Ching for Barack Obama
The yarrow have been drawn....
|The present is embodied in Hexagram 27 - I (Providing Nourishment): With firm correctness there will be good fortune. We must look at what we are seeking to nourish, and by the exercise of our thoughts seek for the proper aliment.|
|The first (bottommost) line, undivided, seems to be thus addressed, "You leave your efficacious tortoise, and look at me till your lower jaw hangs down". There will be evil.|
|The situation is evolving slowly, and Yin (the passive feminine force) is gaining ground.|
|The future is embodied in Hexagram 23 - Po (Splitting Apart): It will not be advantageous to move in any direction whatever.|
|The things most apparent, those above and in front, are embodied by the upper trigram Ken (Mountain), which represents stillness and obstruction.|
|The things least apparent, those below and behind, are embodied by the lower trigram Chen (Thunder), which is transforming into K'un (Earth). As part of this process, movement, initiative, and action are giving way to docility and receptivity.|
