Mount Tai: small proceeds,
great comes up
The great image says:
day 9 of a yang moon
Tai is about imploring for favors and blessings and receiving abundance and prosperity. If you ask the gods for blessings, you will receive them, because you open your mind to see them. Some people find things in places where many others went before and found nothing. Happiness is the result of a state of mind, and going to Mount Tai is to find that.
The ideogram as a whole looks like a great mountain: Tai Shan himself,
in the West of Shandong. 'Tai wind' means West wind. He was for the Zhou
the most important of the 5 holy mountains, their most direct connection
with the divine one’s.

going no returning. In hard conditions determination: no
not worry over a truth. (Even) an eclipse brings blessing.
The bulwark falls back into the moat.
Do not use legions. Issue orders in one’s own community.
One proves one's quality when fate hits hard. No use fighting it, just make order and lead all those concerned. Do not define a course to take, but be ready for every opportunity. This is only possible if the mind is open for the gods. Never fall asleep when status and security seem solid and safe. Any moment fate can change, always stay alert.

Line 2: The character ping, which I translated as 'horse and ice to cross' means to 'walk' across a river: a dry or frozen river. The ideogram is horse and ice. If the big river is suddenly dry or frozen, then take your chance, react immediately. 'He' is the yellow river. According to Hertzer, it is the horse of Xiang Yu, who gave it as a present to a ferryman.
Line 4: not on guard - no limits
