Hexagram Fifteen

Your symbol is Hexagram fifteen, the quality of humbleness, which brings the blessings of nature, heaven, and associates. One who is truly humble attains good fortune.

The first line, yin, shows a qualified person who remains humble. Such a person will be successful.

The second line, yin, shows that it is okay to express humility, as long as it is sincere, and the person remains steadfast.

The third line, yang, shows a hard working person who is humble. That person will be successful and others will follow his/her example.

The fourth line, yin, shows that humility is appropriate in every situation, since it brings out the best in other people.

The fifth line, yin, shows that when there is discord, one may humbly approach one's neighbors for a resolution. This will bring peace and prosperity to everyone.

The sixth line, yin, shows a humble person who has been left out, wronged or cheated. This person can act to restore order and balance to the situation without appearing proud or overly aggressive. There is no fault in such action.

To the reader: Most of the hexagrams have at least one line that predicts bad results, but that does NOT mean you are fated to that result. The hexagrams illustrate different attitudes, so study the actions and reactions to learn the attitudes that will lead to better outcomes.
