I Ching Hexagrams – The Marrying Maiden: meaning of the lines
Line 1: This relationship is not so good. Just like when one leg is shorter than the other. If one of the people tend to obey to the other the relationship can settle.
Line 2: Although the partnership is not perfect – so don’t expect anything extraordinary – everything will be alright.
Line 3: We have to find a better opportunity. If we don’t act, we’ll suffer.
Line 4: This line indicates a person who has definite goals and improves itself continuously. He/she will find a spouse late.
Line 5: The story of the line is about a princess marrying a person of no rank. This means the marriage between a spiritually advanced woman and a less intelligent man. The woman has to be subservient in order to balance the differences and make the marriage successful. In this case it’s the woman who has to be more patient and with whom it should be easy to get on well with. She should be complaisant with the imperfections of her husband.
Line 6: The lack of sincerity shows that nothing good can come out of this match.
