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 first line:
Treading on frost-
solid ice will soon arrive.
The third line:
Hide your talents, but stay steadfast
if you would be of royal service.
The sixth line:
Dragons fight in the wild:
their blood is dark and yellow.

22 Adornment

The Statement of the second hexagram

Adornment. Continue.
Slight gain in having a place to go.
 
 

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

Fire at the foot
of a mountain: adornment.
The noble one thereby
governs with clarity, and
does not dare
to decide lawsuits lightly.
