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.
The third line:
Joining with robbers.
The fourth line:
Joining with those outside.
Pure fortune.
The fifth line:
Glorious joining. The king uses three beaters
to flush the birds before him,
but citizens need no such coercion. Fortune.

55 Plentiful

The Statement of the second hexagram

Plentiful. Progress.

The great king arrives. Do not grieve.

All is right as the midday sun.
 
 

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

Thunder and lightning
come fully: plentiful.
The wise one decides
lawsuits and applies
punishments.
