Great Harvest / Power / Abundance

Make good use of your wealth of experience.

This is an overall very positive hexagram. Some traditional I Ching interpretations stress that it was the only hexagram of the I Ching where all lines are positive. The stress here is upon accomplishment by using one’s wealth of experience.

1. Your idea or project may have great potential but the situation is still in its beginning stage. You may be too isolated still or anxious, and you should overcome such negative feelings by building positive faith in your cause. This awareness will help you to advance!

2. You have abundant resources now and can undertake an important task. This line indicates that your ambitions will be rewarded with great success!

3. Do not indulge in ego-driven pursuits but share your wealth to benefit others. If you have charitable ambitions at this time, your public spirit will be recognized and rewarded. There may be losses in some field, and unexpected gains in other areas of your life. The most important is that you keep your heart open, and have the common good in mind, then you pass safely through this time of change.

4. Instead of competing with others, try to cooperate. Instead of displaying a boastful and ostentatious attitude, try to conciliate. You can only realize in life what you have an equivalent for in your mental domain; thus keep focused and visualize your goals. If you do not force things, you won’t be harmed.

5. As a leader, you don’t need to be superior in every detail. When you are honest and open, but also dignified and serious, nobody will take you lightly. This is a position of successful leadership; being receptive and sincere while maintaining power results in high achievement.

6. If you live rightly and benefit those who have helped you to this position, the universe will help you and great blessings will follow for everyone! The great art of leadership is to achieve balance inwardly and outwardly, which results in coherence within yourself and all those who help you achieving your goals.
