Hexagram Five/Line Two


Nine in the second place means:
Waiting on the sand.
There is some gossip.
The end brings good fortune.

Mitsuke sandbank


The danger gradually comes closer. Sand is near the bank of the river, and the water means danger. Disagreements crop up. General unrest can easily develop in such times, and we lay the blame on one another. He who stays calm will succeed in making things go well in the end. Slander will be silenced if we do not gratify it with injured retorts.
