I Ching Hexagrams: The Taming Power of the Small

The Taming Power of the Small (Hsiao Chu)

Hsiao Chu – The Taming Power of the Small: The Yin is the cohesion in the myriad of yang lines. It’s like a tiny herd, an assembly. The Wind above the Heaven shows a good opportunity for making plans or changing thoughts. Smaller tasks can be done, but this is not the time to start a big venture. The yin line close to the fifth, leader line symbolizes a wise minister managing a small group. However, his/her excessive ambitions may destroy everything.

I Ching Hexagrams – The Taming Power of the Small: meaning of the lines

Line 1: The first line is the supporter of the minister. You are doing well with your tasks and you are dealing with your things, there won’t be any problems. This is a period in which we should concentrate on our tasks.

Line 2: The second line urges not to rush anything. Proceed judiciously.

Line 3: This line can symbolize a marriage or a car. This car, however, is stuck. It can only be put into motion by cooperation.

Line 4: The fourth line is not really strong but it has the attributes of understanding and honesty. It denotes an excellent colleague whose job is to break down anxiety and tension.

Line 5: The fifth line needs someone who assembles the work and arranges correspondences. If this person gets support, they can share the profit. Wealth can’t be expropriated.

Line 6: This sign tells that the yin energy holds back the yang. That means that the small wants to rule the big one. This situation is not suitable for action.
