Your symbol is Hexagram number forty-five, assembly, especially a community coming together in ceremony. The leader, or king, performs a ritual for peace and prosperity. In this time of harmony it is good to take action and seek favors.
The first line, yin, shows one who is confused and defeated. Calling out for help and going forward will bring the desired results.
The second line, yin, shows one who goes forward with the help of a qualified person. Out of sincerity, even a small offering in the sacrifice will be accepted and will bring good fortune.
The third line, yin, shows a person who is tired and confused, with no hope in sight. Going forward alone will have advantages and disadvantages.
The fourth line, yang, shows small discrepancies in the ceremony, but it is successful because the leader is sincere.
The fifth line, yang, shows the community gathering for the ceremony. The leader must find sincerity of heart in order to win the confidence of all participants. This will bring good fortune.
The sixth line, yin, shows a humble person full of regret. Despite this repentant state of mind, there has been no error.
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.
