  Yi Jing, Oracle of the Moon

Trigram Qián above

Qián, Heaven

  Qián's image is the sunrise: the ceaseless succession of days, seasons, years. Its meaning in a reading has to do with time and everything related to it, but usually its strength and perseverance are emphasized.

  The outer trigram tells you about the other, or the situation around the querent, the world, the goal.
  The inner trigram represents you, the querent, or 'here' or 'now' or the person or situation or plan the question applies to.
