I Ching Hexagrams – Conflict: meaning of the lines
Line 1: Don’t let a starting argument tangle you. Wisely avoid it, and things will right themselves.
Line 2: The second line denotes a less important leader, who fell out with the leader symbolized by the fifth line. You can’t win in this situation. You should retreat. Patience can help avoiding the argument.
Line 3: This line shows that it’s better sticking to old things. There is a weak yin line between the two yang ones. If we stay cautious there won’t be any trouble. It’s not lucky to start a new business now.
Line 4: The fourth is a strong yang line in a yin position. We may win an argument with force but that doesn’t mean we are right. It’s better to stop discordance to be lucky.
Line 5: This sign represents huge power and truth. However in order to succeed we need stamina, self-knowledge and morality. Be careful with the situation, don’t hurt anyone.
Line 6: If we win the argument, we can be famous. However, this fame is not precious because it’s based on injustice and power. This victory has its price, and it is the peace of our soul.
