Hexagram 50

I.The oracle


A. Hexagram fifty is related directly with Holding. Another variation is the The Cauldron, or a big pot for preparing a feast that has jade handles/rings on each side of it for holding a hot pot:

   1. The Cauldron, Supreme good fortune; Everything is now favourable
   2. Success

B. The Image

  1. Fire over wood
      a) The image of The Cauldron
      b) Thus the superior man consolidates his fate by making his position correct

II.My interpretation


A. As it is said in other books it is a day of sacrifice to appease the Gods or God

   1. Having a piece of jade does fair well for one. As it is stated in more than one book or another, being aligned with the cycles of this plant is the best we can do for now. It is the same as observing a collective fate. It is the same as, if it is cold, all beings will sense that effect. Or better put, if we are riding on a bus, and the bus hits a pot hole, all riders of this planet will feel that effect, believe me.

Remember, your reading of these lines means you have done your due diligences, in terms of you are here, and it is now. If we have to go back and relate to Native American observance of planetary movement, yes, we need to observe that as well. With my studies of the I Ching I have noticed it also aligns with cosmic changes, and also, social changes. Bar-B-Que.
