Hexagram 15

Qiān, balancing

Gua Poem:
Balance, expansion. A noble one brings to completion.

The great image says: In the center of the earth is a mountain: balancing. The noble one reduces the many and augments the few. He evaluates things and bestows equalizing.

  Qiān: the ideogram and the story. What does it mean for your question?
  This hexagram is complementary to hex.10.

Top 6: Expressing balancing. Fruitful to benefit from moving legions to march against cities or countries.
Who can share his compassion with others, and has insight in the common good and the right time, can lead people to move mountains. When people see your heart and feel your spirit is reliable, then they will support you in all your ventures.
(Changes to hex.52)

6 at 5: Not rich through one's neighbor. Fruitful to benefit from invading and attacking. Nothing that does not bear fruit.
Do not stay a proud person and die by starvation. Get what you need, even if it means taking up lowly jobs, forgetting your principles or losing your macho. A healthy dog is better than a dead superman. Who says supermen are so great anyway?
(Changes to hex.39)

6 at 4: Nothing that does not bear fruit when moving with balance.
Do what you have to do, without any pretension and without having yourself in your mind, as if everything gets fixed by itself. This is essential social thinking. Not following social rules, but following the inborn social touch.
(Changes to hex.62)

9 at 3: Accomplishing balancing. A noble one brings to completion. Auspicious
Do what you do, as good as you are. You don't have to strive for results or recognition. Just doing and being what you can does the job, it will attract results and people. Being what you are matters more than showing what you are.

6 at 2: Expressing balancing. Determination auspicious
The best way to work together is to express oneself in a true way, free from any false notes like pride, false sentimentality, hypocrisy. True to one's own nature. Everybody will listen to inner value without pretensions. If you need a partner, search for one like this.
(Changes to hex.46)

Initial 6: A very balancing noble one. Benefit of crossing the great river. Auspicious.
Words are stronger than weapons. Granting everyone his own life and honor means one's own life and honor will not be attacked and one's road will not be blocked. And the best remedy against war? - trading and exchanging goods and sports.
