I Ching Hexagrams – The Joyous: meaning of the lines
Line 1: This line is self-sufficient and independent; its joy comes from the inside. Just like when we find pleasure in something for the first time.
Line 2: They trust you because of your honesty and fidelity. You don’t have to please others to progress.
Line 3: Weak personality with unbounded ambition. He/she feels attraction to profane people and pleasures. His/her joy is shallow and temporary.
Line 4: This is a strong line in a weak position. You are grounding between the easily accessible and the sophisticated pleasures. You have the power to beat yourself and the reward will be abundance and pure joy.
Line 5: This marks a strong leader who is at the right place. If however he/she puts places confidence in the wrong person luck awaits him/her.
Line 6: The line depicts an evil shifter who is only graceful by interest. In the end, of course, no one is happy.
