A mountain lit by a fire in the valley.


Keeping still





Grace has success in small matters.

It is favourable to persevere on your path.




Mountain with fire below.


A wise man encourages good conduct without being judgmental.


A mountain has a graceful beauty when lit from below. This is another chapter about a transition. Things should not unite too abruptly. A time of grace may be a quiet period before an upheaval.
The advice is that you should not do anything unusual; just do day to day things.
The Chinese consider that grace consists of simple fitness of form, a beauty that is free of adornments.




1) 9 at the start

a) Graceful feet. Parks the vehicle, goes on foot.

b) It is right not to ride.

Sometimes it is best not to accept a favour. It is better to be seen walking than it is to be seen riding in the wrong company.


2) 6 in 2nd throw

a) Graceful patience like growing hair.

b) Helping those above leads to promotion.

Some people are difficult to work with and getting things done requires a lot of patience. If you have this patience, it will be worth it, eventually.


3) 9 in 3rd throw

a) Graceful here, blemished there. Only constant perseverance brings good fortune.

b) Constant perseverance cannot be put to shame.

This is a situation where constant effort will be needed; otherwise things will soon deteriorate.


4) 6 in 4th throw

a) Graceful here, but old there. A white horse rears up.
Not a robber; instead an alliance.

b) It is a suspicious situation.

Someone offers you a white horse; but is it really white or just old and grey? The answer here is that it is a genuine offer and not a trick.


5) 6 in 5th throw

a) Grace like a hilltop garden. The roll of plain silk is meager and small.
Humiliation, but in the end good fortune.

b) Possessing joy.

People who only want big money, and easy living, surround you, but then, you meet somebody who you feel you can really respect. You may feel that you do not have much to offer them and that it would be wrong to push yourself forward. You need not worry since you have an inner relationship; they are just as pleased to meet you as you are pleased to meet them.


6) 9 at the top

a) Simple grace. No blame.

b) This is how it should be.

This line represents a situation where you will get your wish for a simple and graceful way of life.
