Gathering Together – Massing (Ts’ui)
Ts’ui – Gathering Together: This sign depicts a peaceful, happy period when forest animals are gathering on a spawning meadow on the beach of the Lake. This is the right time for progress and to develop our creativity. Effective progress needs the spirits (collecting our inner forces) or the group to be brought together. Piling up good energies creates an opportunity to renew ourselves. If we’ve managed to build up our energies, be helpful with our environment.
I Ching Hexagrams – Gathering Together: meaning of the lines
Line 1: Order needs to be arranged before the assemblage. The line shows overwhelming energies that can be blocked by the help of the fourth line. Tidy up!
Line 2: This line is like the chime calling for gathering. Although it’s not the leader, it assembles those who are loyal to the leader (the case).
Line 3: The line aims at the upward direction and its actions trigger frustration. Whoever gets this line should avoid being arrogant and do their job alone otherwise they get isolated.
Line 4: This place denotes a virtuous person who isn’t in the right situation. However, he/she does the right thing at the right time.
Line 5: This line shows a great goal that can be reached by persistence. Take care of our helpers and protect them.
Line 6: This line doesn’t take part in the gathering because its pride separated it from the others.
