Hexagram Forty Two
I (Pro: Yee) – Increase
Now is the time to receive, whether from within oneself or from the world.
The road is straight leading to unexpected rewards. Extend, dare the new, make the journey. There are no hurdles to cross in your progress. As in Spring, it is now time to sow seeds.
The increase arises out of a situation where the powerful relate to others in a giving and creative way. People are willing to give of themselves, or of their resources.
When there is such accord between the powerful and a body of people, the enormous co-operation makes even difficult projects possible to accomplish. Because of this tide of influence it is good to go forward on any important undertaking, especially where it depends upon the goodwill of others or of the influence of lucky circumstances or coincidence.
It is appropriate to observe ones own negative traits and weed them out during this positive period, to imitate the good we see in others.
If this enquiry relates to relationship, receive the love that is freely given without looking for hidden motives.
Key words: Increase and harmonious relationships.
