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 third line, divided, shows one following the deer without the guidance of the forester, and only finding himself in the midst of the forest. The superior man, acquainted with the secret risks, thinks it better to give up the chase. If he went forward, he would regret it.
The fourth line, divided, shows its subject as a lady. The horses of her chariot appear in retreat. She seeks, however, the help of him who seeks her to be his wife. Advance will be fortunate, and all will turn out advantageously.
The fifth line, undivided, shows the difficulties in the way of its subject's dispensing the rich favours that might be expected from him. With firmness and correctness there will be good fortune in small things. Even with them in great things there will be evil.
The situation is changing rapidly, but neither Yin (the passive feminine force) nor Yang (the active masculine force) is gaining ground.

The future is embodied in Hexagram 62 - Hsiao Kuo (Preponderance of the Small): In these circumstances which it implies, there will be progress and attainment, but it will be advantageous to be firm and correct. Action may be taken in small affairs, but not in great affairs. Like the notes that come down from a bird on the wing, to descend is better than to ascend. There will, in this way, be great good fortune.
The things most apparent, those above and in front, are embodied by the upper 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.
The things least apparent, those below and behind, are embodied by the lower trigram Chen (Thunder), which is transforming into Ken (Mountain). As part of this process, movement, initiative, and action are giving way to stillness and obstruction.
