CHANGING LINE:

Hexagram Thirty-Six/Line Three


Nine in the third place means:
Darkening of the light during the hunt in the south.
Their great leader is captured.
One must not expect perseverance too soon.

'Napoléon Bonaparte abdicated in Fontainebleau', 1845 - Paul Delaroche

Thus victory is achieved. But in abolishing abuses one must not be too hasty. This would turn out badly because the abuses have been in existence so long.
