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 sixth line:
Joining without a leader:
misfortune.

42 Increase

The Statement of the second hexagram

Increase. Gain by having a place to go.

Advance across the great river.
 
 

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

Wind and thunder:
increase. The noble one
sees perfection
and shifts to fit its pattern,
and corrects his own faults.
