The light is under the earth.








Hard work and ordeals.



The light is under the earth.


A wise man works with the people to make best use of the darkening and the eventual brightening.


This is a bad situation. It means that you suffer hard times due to the actions of evil people. You are forced to keep your head down and disappear among the crowds; and you cannot be how you would wish to be. You may have to suffer poverty, and do hard work, and there is a possibility of attacks and even physical injury.

The advice given is to be strong within and persevere, since you will survive the hard times, and then the light will return.




1) 9 at the start

a) Darkening affects flying. He lowers his wings.
A wise man prepares to move.
He does not eat for three days. But he has a plan.
The light of nobility. People will speak of this.

b) You go without because of your principles.

This is a situation where you run into trouble and have to change your plans under pressure. It is best to stick to your principles and go hungry rather than eat without honour. Your refusal will be noticed and spoken about, and held up as an example to others, once the troubles are over.


2) 6 in 2nd throw

a) Darkening. Injuring the left thigh.
Helping with the strength of a horse.
Spirited strength brings good fortune.

b) They yield as a result.

Here you are able to help overcome the dark forces by putting up some strong resistance. Good fortune is predicted providing you are determined enough and do not give up.


3) 9 in 3rd throw

a) Darkness heading towards the south.
Driven out and hunted.
Your leadership acquires greatness.
Perseverance ends the suffering.

b) The chase is successful this brings greatness.

This means that you will find that you are in a position to make decisive moves against those who are causing the darkening. This will lead to victory but it may still take some time before the dark forces lose their power completely.


4) 6 in 4th throw

a) Entering the left side of the body.
Getting to the heart of the darkness.
Prompted to leave.

b) Catching on to their heart's intentions.

Something happens that reveals to you the nature of somebody's true attitude and intentions. This then makes clear the real nature of your problems and therefore you may decide that it is time for you to go.


5) 6 in 5th throw

a) The darkening of the perceptive son.
Perseverance is favourable.

b) His enlightenment cannot be extinguished.

This may be someone who understands the situation but they are not free to show their opposition and therefore appear to be bad or mad. The advice here is that their perseverance will win through in the end.
If this is not your situation; it may be that someone you know needs your help, but perhaps cannot say so, and you have been puzzled by their behaviour.


6) 6 at the top

a) Not enlightenment but darkness.
At first rising up towards Heaven.
Then entering the depths.

b) Turning downwards out of control.

The time of darkness comes to an end eventually due to the collapse of the evil that caused it. The dark forces will 'bite the dust' in the end.
