After Crossing the Water / Already Done / After Completion

A phase of your life has reached a climax!

All in this hexagram is about the art to keep the fruits of one’s achievement and thus to maintain order, and to be mindful about a possible decay or decline — which is indicated by the developmental cycle. Thus, the natural cycle of decline can be avoided. Hence, you need to persevere and avoid complacency. Decline can be prevented through mindful action and the preservation of your achievement through foresight and wisdom. This is not a time to engage in new undertakings.

1. Success is possible, thus go ahead but be mindful about all the details of your action to prevent any possible decay or decline down the road. It might well be that your last-gasp effort for finalizing your project can consolidate your achievement.

2. There may be a minor delay, but you are heading in the right direction. When you care about others, or serve a greater, transpersonal goal, others will sense your commitment and return benefits to you. Peace and stability are indicated.

3. Keep the balance between inner peace and outward right action. Success and victory are indicated, but the effort you need might be considerable. Ponder if the outcome is justified by the investment of time and effort!

4. Overcome your fears and doubts by remaining centered and faithful. Success in life is often on the way but then impeded from manifesting because there are constant doubts. This also means acting by using consideration, not domination.

5. Going step by step toward your goal is the right tempo now. Avoid demonstrations of power and work from inside out. Avoid slackening of your efforts. A step at a time, when done regularly, brings more than marathons followed by periods of exhaustion.

6. There is danger in the present situation. Stay true to your responsibilities. Focus on preserving what has been achieved and avoid taking exorbitant risks. Be mindful and you will be able to prevent a decline.
