Yang / Creative Energy / The Active Principle

Work steadily. You will achieve favorable results.

Traditionally, pure yang energy was considered auspicious for the realization of any project. Most of the lines are favorable except the first and the sixth. In the first the energy is not yet ready and the sixth line indicates a possible excess that needs to be avoided.

1. The time is not ripe for outer action, but it’s a good time for self-development and working on inner clarity for your plans and goals.

2. Seek out the advice of a knowledgeable person in your field. It will be good to work together to achieve your goals.

3. You are now in a situation to attract others to your ideas and social advancement is possible. But you need to be prudent in such a time for your creative energy may lose focus and get scattered through too much exposure and input. If you hold your vision, focus and integrity, you can pass safely through this period of time.

4. This is a moment of choice. You can either seek public fame or work for your own inner advancement and personal development. Follow your deepest intuition, listening to the inner voice that knows what is true for you. When you affirm and have faith in your guidance, this guidance will manifest in your life and you will make the right choice.

5. This is a line of great potential and leadership. You can realize an important project now and the outcome will be beneficial for all parties involved. If you are not sure about the why and how of the realization, consult a knowledgeable person. You will receive help and support!

6. This line shows a need for moderation. Any extreme action should be avoided for it may have a counterproductive effect. You may be too ambitious or you may overstress your possibilities. Restrain yourself to avoid any undesired consequences.
