53.漸Chien / Development (Gradual Progress)巽65離坎4艮321
Six at the beginning means:The wild goose gradually draws near the shore.The young son is in danger.There is talk. No blame.
All the individual lines in this hexagram symbolize the gradual flight of the wild goose. The wild goose is the symbol of conjugal fidelity, because it is believed that this bird never takes another mate after the death of the first.
The initial line suggests the first resting place in the flight of water birds from the water to the heights. The shore is reached. The situation is that of a lonely young man who is just starting out to make his way in life. Since no one comes to help him,南宁时空 his first steps are slow and hesitant, and he is surrounded by danger. Naturally he is subjected to much criticism. But these very difficulties keep him from being too hasty彬彬有礼造句 , and his progress is successful.
Six in the second place means:The wild goose gradually draws near the cliff.Eating and drinking in peace and concord.Good fortune.
The cliff is a safe place on shore. The development has gone a step further. The initial insecurity has been overcome, and a safe position in life has been found利刃坊 , giving one enough to live on. This first success董智芝 , opening up a path to activity, brings a certain joyousness of mood, and one goes to meet the future reassured.
It is said of the wild goose that it calls to its comrades whenever it finds food; this is the symbol of peace and concord in good fortune. A man does not want to keep his good luck for himself only丹妮埃拉 , but is ready to share it with others.
Nine in the third place means:The wild goose gradually draws near the plateau.The man goes forth and does not return.The woman carries a child but does not bring it forth.Misfortune.It furthers one to fight off robbers.
The high plateau is dry and unsuitable for the wild goose. If it goes there大宋海贼 , it has lost its way and gone too far. This is contrary to the law of development.
It is the same in human life. If we do not let things develop quietly but plunge of our own choice too rashly into a struggle, misfortune results. A man jeopardizes his own life, and his family perishes thereby. However, this is not all necessary; it is only the result of transgressing the law of natural development. If one does not willfully provoke a conflictaki月轮 , but confines himself to vigorously maintaining his own position and to warding off unjustified attacks只有梦里来去 ,梁天云 all goes well.
Six in the fourth place means:The wild goose goes gradually draws near the tree.Perhaps it will find a flat branch. No blame.
A tree is not a suitable place for a wild goose. But if it is clever, it will find a flat branch on which it can get a footing. A man's life too鲍翠薇 , in the course of its development, often brings him into inappropriate situations, in which he finds it difficult to hold his own without danger. Then it is important to be sensible and yielding. This enables him to discover a safe place in which life can go on, although he may be surrounded by danger.
Nine in the fifth place means:The wild goose gradually draws near the summit.For three years the woman has no child.In the end nothing can hinder her.Good fortune.
The summit is a high place. In a high position one easily becomes isolated. One is misjudged by the very person on whom one is dependent–the woman by her husband, the official by his superior. This is the work of deceitful persons who have wormed their way in. The result is that relationships remain sterile, and nothing is accomplished. But in the course of further development, such misunderstandings are cleared away, and reconciliation is achieved after all.
Nine at the top means:The wild goose gradually draws near the clouds heights.Its feathers can be used for the sacred dance.Good fortune.
Here life comes to its end. A man's work stands completed. The path rises high toward heaven黛千寻 , like the flight of wild geese when they have left the earth far behind. There they fly, keeping to the order of their flight in strict formation. And if their feathers fall, they can serve as ornaments in the sacred dance pantomimes performed in the temples. Thus the life of a man who has perfected himself is a bright light for the people of earth龙阳逸史 , who look up to him as an example.
