Heaven and water go in opposite directions; this is conflict.







Conflict; although you are truthful. Restrained by fear.

A moderate position brings good fortune.

Attempting to finish it brings misfortune.

It will be favourable to see important people.

It is not advantageous to attempt great works.


Heaven combined with water.

Opposing movements.


A wise man uses exciting events to energise a new beginning.



This is a situation where you find yourself in a conflict; probably not intentionally.

The advice is to gain a moderate position by being reasonable.

It is important not to become angry or try to settle the dispute with force.

You should seek help, and advice, and try to avoid doing any difficult or dangerous work while the conflict continues.





1) 6 at the start

a) If you do not continue the dispute, there is a little gossip.
In the end good fortune comes.

b) The dispute will not last long, and leads to progress.

This represents a person in a weak position who could not win if they tried to push the dispute into a conflict. Fortunately, the matter will eventually be decided justly, although perhaps after a short period of gossip and talk.



2) 9 in 2nd throw

a) Conflict you cannot control. Escaping, in disguise, from the city. For the three hundred families, this is not a mistake.

b) Escaping and skulking; in the end the distress leads to benefits.

If the conflict is serious, and there is a risk of innocent people being put at risk, it is better to leave that place until the situation improves.



3) 6 in 3rd throw

a) Study of ancient wisdom creates perseverance. Danger.
In the end good fortune comes.
If you are working for someone; do not seek new work.

b) Following a good example from the past brings good fortune.

Here, you are in a dangerous situation but not in a good position. You may be busy now, in which case it would be best to finish off what you are doing, so that you can concentrate on dealing with the conflict. Good fortune is predicted if you deal with the conflict correctly. If you are doing some reading, try 'A Book of Five Rings' by Miyamoto Musashi, he was a Samurai, and an expert on strategy.



4) 9 in 4th throw

a) Conflict you cannot control; turn back and submit to fate.
Do not allow a quiet settlement. Good fortune.

b) Do not let go.

If you push the dispute into a conflict, immediately, you will not win, but you should also resist quietly ending it. If you wait, and see what happens, there will be good fortune later.



5) 9 in 5th throw

a) To argue in front of him brings supreme good fortune.

b) Your case is moderate and correct.

This line represents the judge. Here it will be settled in your favour; this is good fortune.



6) 9 at the top

a) Even if you win a purse and belt; by the morning it will have been stripped from you three times.

b) Using force ends in losing and is nothing to be proud of.

If you seek to win with violence and conflict; then you go too far, and you will suffer from the backlash. If you take something by force you will end up losing it.
