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 third line:
Joining with robbers.
The fifth line:
Glorious joining. The king uses three beaters
to flush the birds before him,
but citizens need no such coercion. Fortune.
The sixth line:
Joining without a leader:
misfortune.

52 Stilling

The Statement of the second hexagram

One stills one's back
and does not move one's body.
There is movement in one's courtyard,
but one does not see one's people.
No fault.
 
 

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

Doubled mountains:
stillness.
The noble one
does not consider matters
beyond his position.
