Xiăo Chù

Trigram Wind
Heaven

Hexagram 09

Xiăo Chù, tending small livestock

Gua Poem:
Small accumulation, expansion. Shrouding clouds, no rain from our Western fields
.

The great image says: Wind moves high in heaven, small accumulation. The noble one cultivates the pattern of virtue.

Xiăo Chù: the ideogram and the story. What does it mean for your question?

Top 9: Already rain, already dealing with it. Thanks to the virtue it carries. Housewife determination: danger. The moon is almost full. The noble one rectifying: pitfall
Every change always contains unexpected possibilities, but you find them only if you’re open to it. Stay versatile, things always change in an unexpected way. Be creative, don’t stick only to your own job. Never be too sure of anything. And even if you are the one who knows everything, even then don’t force anyone.
(Changes to hex.5)

9 at 5: Inspiring confidence, making order (out of chaos) thus. Rich through one’s neighbor.
Make friends with people when things go well, then they will be your friends when times are tough. Sincerity and trustworthiness, compassion and generosity are your tools to give structure to your life and its surroundings.
(Changes to hex.26) 

6 at 4: Inspiring confidence. Blood goes away, fear goes out. Without fault.
Small human matters, fears, ties, frustrations, they are forgotten when inspiration brings big images, ideals. Now one is no longer following human patterns, but dedicating oneself to higher aims. When the soul 'knows', there is no fear. He will follow his knowing.
(Changes to hex.1)

9 at 3: The cart loses spokes. Husband and wife turn away their eyes.
Reactions are telltale of the spirit in the house. If they are a bit wrong in small mishaps, they will be disastrous in big ones. So pay attention to all the small and big events, and especially to reactions.
(Changes to hex.61)

9 at 2: Led by a cord to return, auspicious.
When running a small farm (or anything that can be symbolized by that image) it is good to be reminded convincingly of the things one should do. 
Don’t let contacts distract you from your own road, but do use their reactions as tokens of your own influences. Reactions of others can tell you a lot about yourself and your actions
(Changes to hex.37)

Initial 9: Return to one’s way. How could that be faulty. Auspicious.
Go your own road. When you stray off, then go back again. Sometimes it will be difficult, people expecting you to act in a certain way, you yourself insecure or convinced another way is better. Being and doing what you essentially are, can never be wrong.
(Changes to hex.57)
