Today's I Ching for Donald Rumsfeld
The yarrow have been drawn....
|The present is embodied in Hexagram 46 - Sheng (Pushing Upward): There will be great progress and success. Seeking to meet with the great man, its subject need have no anxiety. Advance to the south will be fortunate.|
|The second line, undivided, shows its subject with that sincerity which will make even the small offerings of the vernal sacrifice acceptable. There will be no error.|
|The situation is evolving slowly, and Yin (the passive feminine force) is gaining ground.|
|The future is embodied in Hexagram 15 - Ch'ien (Modesty): There is progress and success. The superior man, being humble, will have a good issue to his undertakings.|
|The things most apparent, those above and in front, are embodied by the upper trigram K'un (Earth), which represents docility and receptivity.|
|The things least apparent, those below and behind, are embodied by the lower trigram Sun (Wind), which is transforming into Ken (Mountain). As part of this process, penetration and following are giving way to stillness and obstruction.|
