Hexagram Mirrors - Line Reflections
(line pathways)

Mirror group 09.1-57.1-16.6-58.6

About holding on to one's direction

  09.1 yang: Return to one’s own way. How could that be faulty? Auspicious.
  Go your own road, return to it every time you stray, following Heaven's (your conscience's) laws.


  57.1 yin: Advancing and retreating. Fruitful: a military man's determination.
  Do what you should do and how you should.

Lines 9.1 and 57.1 are each others fanyao, like views on the same landscape but from a different side, Heaven-Wind and vv. Asking for different (complementary) actions, like a road can be travelled in two directions. Same road, very different.

  10.6 yang: Observing the steps and verifying the auspicious omen. Their revolving: eminent auspiciousness.
  Treading according to your values, unwavering like Heaven.


  58.6 yin: Interaction which draws you in.
  To be open like Lake can give others the ways to draw you in and make you lose your values. So be severe.

Lines 10.6 and 58.6 are each others fanyao, like views on the same landscape but from a different side, Heaven-Lake and vv. Asking for different (complementary) actions:
integrity vv being open.

Lines 9.1 and 10.6 and also 57.1 and 58.6 are each others qianyao (upside-down). Here are similar actions but in different landscapes (complementary contexts).
What was up, outside or mental, is now down, inside or physical.

Mirror groups 9.1 and 15.6 are contrasts
(all yang lines of Mirror 9.1 are yin lines in Mirror 15.6 and vv)
Mirror 09.1-57.1 is about holding on to direction.
Mirror 15.6-51.1 is about finding or creating values.
