2 Earth

The Statement of the first hexagram

Earth: maker, everywhere.
Gain from a mare's purity.
The noble one wanting to go far
is first confused, but later finds guidance.
Gain friends in the west and south,
Lose friends in the east and north.
Peace: this is a sign of fortune.

The changing lines

The first line:
Treading on frost-
solid ice will soon arrive.
The second line:
Straight, square, great-
this leads to spontaneous
and undoubted gain.
The fourth line:
A tied sack:
neither blame nor praise.
The sixth line:
Dragons fight in the wild:
their blood is dark and yellow.

38 Estrangement

The Statement of the second hexagram

Estrangement.

In small matters: fortune.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

Ground as the power
of earth:
the noble one generously
supports all things.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

Fire above, lake below:
estrangement. The noble
one works with others,
but remains an individual.
