I Ching Hexagrams – Following: meaning of the lines
Line 1: This sign shows that we should use our energies to change ourselves. Don’t bolt ourselves in, make friends with virtuous people. When change arrives in our life, we will need their help.
Line 2: The second line connects to the first and to the fifth line as well. There are two ways ahead it: it either chooses the easier but useless one or the more difficult one which will lead to the achievement of great things.
Line 3: The third yin line denotes a tricky and fraudulent person. However, it’s important to know that those acting from selfish, philistine greediness will always come mucker.
Line 4: The third line is a strong yang line in a yin position. It could easily rule the lower trigram but that wouldn’t be good. It’s better to keep calm, that’ll bring luck.
Line 5: It indicates a trustworthy leader who enjoys the loyalty of the followers.
Line 6: The mountain itself depicts a motionless position. This line marks a special helper who is not strained by the leader. However, its wisdom is still needed.
