8 Joining

The Statement of the first hexagram

Joining brings fortune.
Repeating the divination by yarrow stalks
brings a supreme and lasting omen
without fault.
Those who are not sure
will join the plan.
Those who are late
will meet misfortune.

The changing lines

The first line:
Have confidence. Joining is without fault.
Be as full of trust as an overflowing pot.
At last, another will come. Fortune.

3 Sprouting

The Statement of the second hexagram

Sprouting begins everywhere,
abundant and pure.
No need to go far:
gain by naming allies.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

Water pooled
on the earth: joining.
The early kings founded
the myriad nations,
and kept close ties
with all the leaders.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

Clouds and thunder: sprouting. The noble one
considers the principles.
