Hexagram 8

Hexagram 8

I.The Oracle 

A. Hexagram eight is related directly with Grouping. Another variation is the Holding Together or that of a puddle of water, it is not part of the sea or ocean, but still, it holds together within its low spot and therefore an Alliance:

   1. Holding Together brings good fortune
   2. Success comes from inquiring the oracle once again. Same as in marketing the early adopters will fare well, but for all latecomers, the hors d'oeuvres are depleted. It is now common knowledge.

B. The Image

  1. On the earth is water
      a) The image of Holding together
      b) Thus the kings of antiquity bestow the different states as fiefs and cultivated friendly relations with the feudal lords

II.My interpretation 

A. As it was said earlier on, that puddle of water will soon dry up and that is due to its position. If it could only conjoin with a larger body of water and enjoy a greater and profound presence.

   1. This hexagram has more to do with an Avatar who acts as a conduit that channels water off the roof directly to his immediate surrounds. Because of proximity, it has a telltale effect on the closest recipients. When it gets hot, unlike the ocean, the temperature of the puddle will drastically change, or maybe diminish that small body of water. One more time, which one makes the loudest noise, the small bell or the large bell? It is the aura of The Great Person that Affects. Learn more about Hexagram 8.
