Prospering (35)


The Judgement

PROGRESS.  The powerful prince
Is honored with horses in large numbers.
In a single day he is granted audience three times.

The Image

The sun rises over the earth:
The image of PROGRESS.
Thus the superior man himself
Brightens his bright virtue.

Line Poems

  • 6 - Making progress with the horns is permissible Only for the purpose of punishing one’s own city. To be conscious of danger brings good fortune. No blame. Perseverance brings humiliation.
  • 5 - Remorse disappears. Take not gain and loss to heart. Undertakings bring good fortune. Everything serves to further.
  • 4 - Progress like a hamster. Perseverance brings danger.
  • 3 - All are in accord.  Remorse disappears.
  • 2 - Progressing, but in sorrow. Perseverance brings good fortune. Then one obtains great happiness from one’s ancestress.
  • 1 - Progressing, but turned back. Perseverance brings good fortune. If one meets with no confidence, one should remain calm. No mistake.


The hexagram represents the sun rising over the earth. 
It is therefore the symbol of rapid, easy progress, which at the same time means ever widening expansion and clarity.
