54 Marrying Sister

The Statement of the first hexagram

Advance: misfortune.
No place will bring gain.

The changing lines

The first line:
A younger sister marries as a secondary wife.
The lame can tread. Going is favorable.
The sixth line:
A woman carries a basket: no fruit.
A man sacrifices a ram: no blood.
No place is gainful.

64 Not Yet Across

The Statement of the second hexagram

Not yet across. Continue.

The young fox, nearly across,

soaks its tail.

No place is gainful.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

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

The Image of the second hexagram

Fire on top of water:
not yet across. The wise
one distinguishes things
carefully, and puts them
in their places.
