CHANGING LINE:

Hexagram Thirty-One/Line Two


Six in the second place means:
The influence shows itself in the calves of the legs.
Misfortune.
Tarrying brings good fortune.

In movement, the calf of the leg follows the foot; by itself it can neither go forward nor stand still. Since the movement is not self-governed, it bodes ill. One should wait quietly till one is impelled to action by a real influence. Then one remains uninjured.
