The Tâ Yû Hexagram

Tâ Yû indicates that, (under the circumstances which it implies), there will be great progress and success.

  • 1. In the first NINE, undivided, there is no approach to what is injurious, and there is no error. Let there be a realisation of the difficulty (and danger of the position), and there will be no error (to the end).
  • 2. In the second NINE, undivided, we have a large waggon with its load. In whatever direction advance is made, there will be no error.
  • 3. The third NINE, undivided, shows us a feudal prince presenting his offerings to the Son of Heaven. A small man would be unequal (to such a duty).
  • 4. The fourth NINE, undivided, shows its subject keeping his great resources under restraint. There will be no error.
  • 5. The fifth SIX, divided, shows the sincerity of its subject reciprocated by that of all the others (represented in the hexagram). Let him display a proper majesty, and there will be good fortune.
  • 6. The topmost NINE, undivided, shows its subject with help accorded to him from Heaven. There will be good fortune, advantage in every respect.
