Hexagram Fifty-nine

Your symbol is Hexagram number fifty-nine, a state of moral degradation that can be rectified through belief in a higher power. When the king sets up his altar and becomes immersed in faith, then great things can once again be accomplished.

The first line, yin, shows one who rescues another with the help of a strong and able horse.

The second line, yang, shows the time of danger has passed, for the person in the first line has saved him/her. Both people seek refuge in the strong horse.

The third line, yin, shows one who overcomes his/her own limitations to help another person in need. Being able to set one's own needs aside for the sake of another shows strength of character.

The fourth line, yin, shows one who is able to break up an angry crowd. Then from the people who have disbursed, assemble a productive crew. This is an example of great wisdom.

The fifth line, yang, shows a king calling out to his citizens, even though they've been forced out of their land. The king is in the proper position, so let him continue.

The sixth line, yang, shows one who takes precautions to avoid a dangerous situation, just as one may cover their wounds. One must do what is possible, yet still keep out of trouble.

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.
