I Ching Hexagrams – Waiting: meaning of the lines
Line 1: Danger is far away. If we travel to a distant place, be patient. Being careful helps to avoid it.
Line 2: The situation is like sand on a beach. The line may show some irresponsible gossiping (either done by us or at our expense). Self-control and patience can help avoiding trouble.
Line 3: Danger is quite close. Inconsiderate haste brought it. This situation needs action, hesitating and thoughtlessness make the state worse.
Line 4: This is the first line of the danger. However, if we accept the help of the fifth line we can solve the situation. Seek for cooperation.
Line 5: Wait and rest until trouble passes. If we stay focused the situation will be solved.
Line 6: There’s no need for hesitation anymore, danger will soon go away. We have three strong supporters (the three lower yang lines).
