Today's I Ching for George W. Bush
The coins have been tossed...
|The present is embodied in Hexagram 53 - Chien (Gradual Progress): We see the marriage of a young lady, and the good fortune attending it. There will be advantage in being firm and correct.
|The fifth line, undivided, shows the geese gradually advanced to the high mound. It suggests a wife who for three years does not become pregnant, but in the end the natural issue cannot be prevented. There will be good fortune.
|The situation is evolving slowly, and Yin (the passive feminine force) is gaining ground.
|The future is embodied in Hexagram 52 - Ken (Keeping Still): When one is resting, and he loses all consciousness of self; when he walks in his courtyard, and does not see any of the persons in it, there will be no error.
|The things most apparent, those above and in front, are embodied by the upper trigram Sun (Wind), which is transforming into Ken (Mountain). As part of this process, penetration and following are giving way to stillness and obstruction.
|The things least apparent, those below and behind, are embodied by the lower trigram Ken (Mountain), which represents stillness and obstruction.
