Returning. Continue.
In coming and going,
there is neither sickness nor distress.
Companions come without fault.
Returning is its Tao.
In seven days, returning comes.
Gain by having a place to go.

54 Marrying Sister

The Statement of the second hexagram

Advance: misfortune.
No place will bring gain.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

Thunder in the center of
the earth: returning.
The ancient kings
closed the borders
during the solstices.
Traveling merchants
did not journey. Sovereigns
did not tour the provinces.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

Thunder over lake:
marrying sister.
The noble one pursues
far-reaching goals
while keeping aware
of possible ruin.
