Today's I Ching for Sammy Davis Jr.
|The present is embodied in Hexagram 3 - Chun (Difficulty at the Beginning): There will be great progress and success, and the advantage will come from being correct and firm. Any movement in advance should not be undertaken lightly. There will be advantage in appointing feudal princes or other delegates in your stead.|
|The first (bottommost) line, undivided, shows the difficulty its subject has in advancing. It will be advantageous for him to abide correct and firm, and to be made a feudal ruler.|
|The situation is evolving slowly, and Yin (the passive feminine force) is gaining ground.|
|The future is embodied in Hexagram 8 - Pi (Union): There is good fortune, but let him reexamine himself. Let him divine whether his virtue be great, unremitting, and firm. If it be so, there will be no error. Those who have not rested will then come to him. With those who are too late in coming, it will be ill.|
|The things most apparent, those above and in front, are embodied by the upper trigram K'an (Water), which represents danger and the unknown.|
|The things least apparent, those below and behind, are embodied by the lower trigram Chen (Thunder), which is transforming into K'un (Earth). As part of this process, movement, initiative, and action are giving way to docility and receptivity.|
