Bottom trigram: Earth


Hexagram Number: 8

Hexagram Name: Joining

Line 1 comment: Have confidence. Joining is without fault. Be as full of trust as an overflowing pot. At last, another will come. Fortune.

Line 2 comment: Joining from within our own people. Pure fortune.

Line 3 comment: Joining with robbers.

Line 4 comment: Joining with those outside. Pure fortune.
