Today's I Ching for Freddie Prinze Jr.
The yarrow have been drawn....
|The present is embodied in Hexagram 47 - K'un (Oppression): Despite exhaustion, there may yet be progress and success. For the firm and correct, the really great man, there will be good fortune. He will fall into no error. If he make speeches, his words cannot be made good.
|The first (bottommost) line, divided, shows its subject with bare buttocks straightened under the stump of a tree. He enters a dark valley, and for three years has no prospect of deliverance.
|The second line, undivided, shows its subject straightened amidst his wine and viands. There come to him the red knee-covers of the ruler. It will be well for him to maintain his sincerity, as in sacrificing. Active operations on his part will lead to evil, but he will be free from blame.
|The fourth line, undivided, shows its subject proceeding very slowly to help the subject of the first line, who is straitened by the carriage adorned with metal in front of him. There will be occasion for regret, but the end will be good.
|The fifth line, undivided, shows its subject with his nose and feet cut off. He is straitened by his ministers in their scarlet aprons. He is leisurely in his movements, however, and is satisfied. It will be well for him to be as sincere as in sacrificing to spiritual beings.
|The situation is changing rapidly, and Yin (the passive feminine force) is gaining ground.
|The future is embodied in Hexagram 24 - Fu (Turning Point): There will be a free course and progress. He finds no one to distress him in his exits and entrances. Friends come to him, and no error is committed. He will return and repeat his proper course. In seven days comes his return. There will be advantage in whatever direction movement is made.
|The things most apparent, those above and in front, are embodied by the upper trigram Tui (Lake), which is transforming into K'un (Earth). As part of this process, joy, pleasure, and attraction are giving way to docility and receptivity.
|The things least apparent, those below and behind, are embodied by the lower trigram K'an (Water), which is transforming into Chen (Thunder). As part of this process, danger and the unknown are giving way to movement, initiative, and action.
