I Ching Hexagrams – Corners of the Mouth: meaning of the lines
Line 1: There is mountain turtle that only eats air and dewdrops. He is the symbol of calm, peaceful and long life. The best nutritions are peace and tranquility. Do not spend too much time on admiring externals and jealousy because we will lose our well-being. Vanity and luxury enslave you.
Line 2: Those who are off the hack and aim for things exceeding their abilities will be unlucky. The sign also refers to the fact that many people tend to crazily go after happiness and security but in the meantime they lose the advantages of them.
Line 3: Malnutrition. The more we eat the less we can control ourselves. The more we chat to no end the more repulsive we look. Don’t exaggerate and pick wisely what we eat.
Line 4: This line is like a tiger. It only hunts when it’s hungry but then its power and courage help him defeat the pray fast. Be like the tiger that lets others eat as well and always acts wisely. It restricts its own wishes and doesn’t destroy anything unnecessarily.
Line 5: This line doesn’t have a leading role. It has already piled up enough food and waits calmly. Avoid inattention that, just like a wrong diet, would distract attention. Don’t cross the big river, taking risks is dangerous.
Line 6: This line is the leader of the sign. In this situation it has to govern with wise decisions and it has to avoid the blind urge of shallow desires.
