63: After Completion Friday, Nov 7th, 2013   It is a fine irony that after completion of some project or great enterprise, there is still much left to do. Completion is merely a pause in the cycle of creation and decay, a momentary still point for the swinging pendulum of life. Though completion does imply […]

22: Grace and Beauty Thursday, Nov 6th, 2014 A splashy sunset bathes the mountains in a soft radiance; the light of a full moon dances on the surface of a rippling river.

36: Darkening of the Light Wednesday, Nov 5th, 2014 When light becomes dim, it may be wise to become invisible. The image is of fresh darkness, the period after the sun has gone down or the fire has gone out. There is still much activity left over from the light of day, while movements in […]

You may not be able to change the direction of the wind, but by frequently adjusting your sails, you can arrive at your destination.

21: Cutting Through Sunday, Nov 2nd, 2014 The situation calls for confronting a knotty conflict and cutting through it. Somehow, the way to harmony and unity is blocked or frustrated — perhaps by a tangle of misunderstandings or outright deceit.

51: Shock Saturday, Nov 1st, 2014 One hears thunder unexpectedly! First comes fear, then a sharpening of one’s vision. Recall a close brush with danger — a falling branch, an automobile accident barely avoided, an escape from a potentially violent confrontation. Such incidents arouse every nerve fiber in your body in a brief wave of […]

27: Nourishment Wednesday, Oct 29th, 2014 Nourishment refers to more than a healthy diet. It is the care-giving function. Eating properly implies care for oneself; providing healthy meals in the home is a sign of caring for the family.

44: Liaison Monday, Oct 27th, 2014 The attraction is strong, but the relationship is not destined to last. So, be careful — the magnetism of polarized forces may not be what it seems. An apparently harmless, but potentially dangerous, energy has attracted attention to itself and is pulling on a stronger one. The ancient image […]

28: Excessive Pressure Sunday, Oct 26th, 2014 Something is out of balance. This hexagram points to some pressure that is threatening stability and needs correcting.

32: Endurance Friday, Oct 24th, 2014 Endurance is fostered when inner constancy is coupled with external flexibility. Long-distance runners must adapt readily to changing conditions, while maintaining an inner determination and strength of purpose.

57: Gentle Penetration Thursday, Oct 23rd, 2014 The general situation here points to subtle penetration. Reeds bend softly in the wind, symbolizing flexibility and endurance, symbolizing quiet, relaxed effectiveness in action. A gentle influence is at work, but just as the wind is ceaseless in its efforts, so too small forces can persist to produce […]

9: Small Influences Saturday, Oct 18th, 2014   A gentle wind gathers the clouds, but still, no rain. Softer influences predominate as the power of subtle forces grows.
