2 Earth

The Statement of the first hexagram

Earth: maker, everywhere.
Gain from a mare's purity.
The noble one wanting to go far
is first confused, but later finds guidance.
Gain friends in the west and south,
Lose friends in the east and north.
Peace: this is a sign of fortune.

The changing lines

The second line:
Straight, square, great-
this leads to spontaneous
and undoubted gain.
The sixth line:
Dragons fight in the wild:
their blood is dark and yellow.

4 Youth

The Statement of the second hexagram

A youth must be steadfast.

I do not seek the naive youth.

The naive youth seeks me.

At the first divination, I explain,

but after three times, it is irritating.

Annoyed, I explain no further.

Nevertheless, a gainful omen.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

Ground as the power
of earth:
the noble one generously
supports all things.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

A spring gushes
below a mountain:
the naive youth.
The noble one nourishes virtue
with determination.
