Today's I Ching for Steve Martin
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 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 evolving slowly, and Yin (the passive feminine force) is gaining ground.|
|The future is embodied in Hexagram 40 - Hsieh (Deliverance): Advantage will be found in the southwest. If no further operations are called for, there will be good fortune in returning to the old conditions. If some operations are called for, there will be good fortune in the early conduct of them.|
|The things most apparent, those above and in front, are embodied by the upper trigram Tui (Lake), which is transforming into Chen (Thunder). As part of this process, joy, pleasure, and attraction are giving way to movement, initiative, and action.|
|The things least apparent, those below and behind, are embodied by the lower trigram K'an (Water), which represents danger and the unknown.|
