Hexagram 48: Well

Statement: Well. A city may change, but the well does not. It does not lose, it does not gain. In spite of all who come and go from a well, it remains a well. But if the rope cannot reach, or if the well's vase is upended:_ misfortune.


Top trigram: Water


Bottom trigram: Wind


Hexagram Number: 48

Hexagram Name: Well

Line 1 comment: The muddy well does not feed. No birds come to an ancient well.

Line 2 comment: The well bottom gushes carp. A broken jug leaks.

Line 3 comment: The well is dredged, but no one drinks. My heart is anguished. Water could be drawn. If the king understood, we would instantly receive happiness.

Line 4 comment: The well lined with brick. No fault.

Line 5 comment: The well of a clear cold spring: drink.

Line 6 comment: The well collects fully. Do not cover it. Have confidence: great fortune.

The image Wood above water: well. The noble one encourages the people and lends them assistance.
