44 Copulating

The Statement of the first hexagram

Copulating: the woman is powerful.
Do not marry such a woman.

The changing lines

The third line:
Buttocks without skin: one walks uneasily.
Harsh, but no great fault.
The fifth line:
Like a gourd surrounded by willows,
and held in place,
there comes a falling from heaven.

64 Not Yet Across

The Statement of the second hexagram

Not yet across. Continue.

The young fox, nearly across,

soaks its tail.

No place is gainful.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

Wind under heaven:
copulating.
The sovereign
issues commands
to the four quarters.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

Fire on top of water:
not yet across. The wise
one distinguishes things
carefully, and puts them
in their places.
