I Ching Hexagrams – Possession in Great Measure: meaning of the lines
Line 1: The first line is in an isolated situation. This is natural; there aren’t any problems right now. Avoid harmful things and attention rising.
Line 2: The second line depicts a huge chariot that carries the second, the third and the fourth line as well. This is a powerful situation. This energy should be used wisely. Be like the huge chariot that advances towards its goal.
Line 3: With unselfish and unique mentality we can enjoy the abundant harvest. Selfishness and greediness will lead to a different outcome than what we have expected. The unique situation denotes a changing status. Profit becomes loss, loss becomes profit. We can’t think about our personal profit right now.
Line 4: This line indicates the upcoming fullness and entirety. If we keep blowing ourselves up we’ll blow-out. We can get in trouble. Use our energies calmly and peacefully.
Line 5: An able leader’s real power doesn’t manifest in bravado but in uniting others for the sake of the cause. He/She doesn’t need to have the best of the running with every detail.
Line 6: At the majority of the hexagrams the upper line is unlucky but here it shows something miraculous. It marks an incredibly wise person who supports the fifth, leader line. It teaches us that we don’t always have to appoint wise people as leaders; we can rely on them as a supporter as well.
