If you are alert to the Creative, you will meet with good fortune now.
This hexagram signals a time when the fundamental creative power of the universe is available to you. An unrestricted outpouring of benevolent energy from the heavens makes possible profound progress for those who are conscientiously following proper principles.
Frantic activity is not in order. Your responsibility instead is to be open and receptive to the Higher Power, allowing it to guide your actions. By allowing inferior thoughts and habits to pass away, you make room for an expansion of your superior qualities, which leads inevitably to good fortune. In your conduct with others, embody tolerance, reticence, and gentleness. Strive to meet others halfway in every situation. To overextend yourself, or require that of another, is to create an undesirable imbalance.
Your attitude toward the Sage is most important. Alertness and receptiveness are paramount. To receive the powerful assistance of the Creative, remain humble, patient, accepting, and responsive. Careful attention to truth brings vast rewards at this time.
Darkness still. Do not act prematurely. The light of the Creative has yet to emerge. Remain patient until the time is clearly ripe.
The light begins to emerge. Resist the compulsions of the ego to influence others and gain recognition. Modesty furthers.
Your inner power makes influence possible. There is danger in ambition and agenda-making. The truly beneficial influence is that which flows naturally from your attention to what is correct.
A place of transition. There is the possibility of progress in many directions. Let go of preconceived notions about your proper path. You succeed by allowing the Creative to guide you.
Your attention to proper principles has fostered an emergence of the Creative. Influence occurs without any conscious intervention on your part.
Arrogance in ambition or conduct brings danger, downfall, and isolation. Remain quietly joined to the will of the Sage. The abandonment of gentleness and humility leads to misfortune.
