Today's I Ching for Sammy Davis Jr.
|The present is embodied in Hexagram 64 - Wei Chi (Before Completion): There may be progress and success in these circumstances. We see a young fox that has nearly crossed the stream, when its tail gets immersed. There will be no advantage in any way.|
|The fourth line, undivided, shows its subject by firm correctness obtaining good fortune, so that all occasion for repentance disappears. Let him stir himself up, as if he were invading the Demon region, where for three years rewards will come to him and his troops from the great kingdom.|
|The situation is evolving slowly, and Yin (the passive feminine force) is gaining ground.|
|The future is embodied in Hexagram 4 - Meng (Youthful Folly): There will be progress and success. I do not go and seek the youthful and inexperienced, but he comes and seeks me. When he shows the sincerity that marks the first recourse to divination, I instruct him. If he apply a second and third time, that is troublesome, and I do not instruct the troublesome. There will be advantage in being firm and correct.|
|The things most apparent, those above and in front, are embodied by the upper trigram Li (Fire), which is transforming into Ken (Mountain). As part of this process, brightness and warmth are giving way to stillness and obstruction.|
|The things least apparent, those below and behind, are embodied by the lower trigram K'an (Water), which represents danger and the unknown.|
