Today's I Ching for Sammy Davis Jr.
|The present is embodied in Hexagram 40 - Hsieh (Deliverance): Advantage will be found in the southwest. If no further operations are called for, there will be good fortune in returning to the old conditions. If some operations are called for, there will be good fortune in the early conduct of them.|
|The first (bottommost) line, divided, shows that its subject will commit no error.|
|The second line, undivided, shows its subject catch, in hunting, three foxes, and obtain the golden arrows. With firm correctness there will be good fortune.|
|The situation is shifting, but neither Yin (the passive feminine force) nor Yang (the active masculine force) is gaining ground.|
|The future is embodied in Hexagram 51 - Chen (Shock): There is an intimation of ease and development. When the time of movement comes, the subject will be found looking out with apprehension, yet smiling and talking cheerfully. When the movement, like a crash of thunder, terrifies all within a hundred li, he will be like the sincere worshipper, who is not startled into letting go his ladle and cup of sacrificial spirits.|
|The things most apparent, those above and in front, are embodied by the upper trigram Chen (Thunder), which represents movement, initiative, and action.|
|The things least apparent, those below and behind, are embodied by the lower trigram K'an (Water), which is transforming into Chen (Thunder). As part of this process, danger and the unknown are giving way to movement, initiative, and action.|
