Today's I Ching for Michael York
The yarrow have been drawn....
|The present is embodied in Hexagram 34 - Ta Chuang (The Power of the Great): It will be advantageous to be firm and correct.|
|The third line, undivided, shows, in the case of a small man, one using all his strength, but in the case of a superior man, one whose rule is not to do so. Even with firm correctness the position would be perilous. The exercise of strength in it might be compared to the case of a ram butting against a fence, and getting his horns entangled.|
|The situation is evolving slowly, and Yin (the passive feminine force) is gaining ground.|
|The future is embodied in Hexagram 54 - Kuei Mei (The Marrying Maiden): The action will be evil, and in no way advantageous.|
|The things most apparent, those above and in front, are embodied by the upper trigram Chen (Thunder), which represents movement, initiative, and action.|
|The things least apparent, those below and behind, are embodied by the lower trigram Chi'en (Heaven), which is transforming into Tui (Lake). As part of this process, strength and creativity are giving way to joy, pleasure, and attraction.|
