CHANGING LINE:

Hexagram Forty-Nine/Line Five


Nine in the fifth place means:
The great man changes like a tiger.
Even before he questions the oracle
He is believed.

Tiger camouflage


A tigerskin, with its highly visible black stripes on a yellow ground, shows its distinct pattern from afar. It is the same with a revolution brought about by a great man: large, clear guiding lines become visible, understandable to everyone. Therefore he need not first consult the oracle, for he wins the spontaneous support of the people.
