I. The Oracle

A. Hexagram fifty-three parallels that of self-development, or just plain old developmental change.  The situation is named Jian or infiltrating. Additional variations are just as I have noted, development, gradual progress, and advancement. The lower trigram is gen: bound or mountain. The upper trigram is xun: wind.

1. Development, The maiden is given in marriage.
Good fortune brings good fortune.
2. Perseverance furthers.

B. The Image

1. On the mountain, a tree.
a) Now we can see the image of developmental growth.
b) Thus the superior man abides in dignity and virtue,
in order to improve the mores.

II. My interpretation

A. “Development

Good day to get out there and exercise, and enjoy the outdoors as it develops into spring. All-day we see progress in our right now evolving environment. We are now moving from the notion of hexagram fifty-three to that of hexagram fifty-four the marriageable maiden. But in this instant, we must quickly marry the young maiden, not so much in the next hexagram 54. We should be cultivating for the next phase when it comes to the hexagram that follows the current one, keynote marriage.

As we progress towards the goal of meeting spring mornings, let us not forget the people who fell out of formation during our yearly flights from the fall to spring again. The flight through the last couple of months of winter has been stop-and-go but we are at this successful point. Now is a good time to lighten the load on our old pack mules. give a little, even if it’s money, but giving a little of your time is more crucial. Just showing face brightens the day of a lot of people unaware of the effects of Qi, live it and give it.
