Hi everyone,
1st time poster her tho I've been using some of the interpretation resources here for around a year or so.

I recently did a reading for myself with the result Before Completion with no changing lines.
The reading was in relation to my work in music which hasn't been going well for me for the last year or so. I quit a band that I'd done sound for going on 7 years in october last year and with it, quit a recording studio that I had spent quite a bit of time and effort setting up.
Recently I've been trying to work on my own material and have been recording some guitar for a friend of mine who has some seriously good quality material in production at the moment.
So, the question I asked the I Ching was:- Please tell me, what is the likely resolution of my current efforts as musician?
I'm struggling to interpret Before Completion as the result here. Could it mean hat a positive outcome is in store, with right-mindedness and attention to detail, or could it mean that I'm about to have my 'tail immersed'?
I should add that I've been considering abandoning music as a way of life recently due to the amount of work I've done for very little reward and that I've been plagued by technical issues with my equipment since the new year. I know that Before Completion refers to some coming balancing of 'Karma' but I'm unsure whether to interpret this as advice to persevere as a musician or to just keep my guitar as a hobby instrument.
Kind regards and many thanks in advice for your help,

well the inexperienced fox gets his tail wet. You are experienced as a musician but you are not experienced in the level of success you wish to rise to.

If you want to cross the river successfully you will need to decide wether you want this career or not first. You are on the right track already in thinking:
Could it mean hat a positive outcome is in store, with right-mindedness and attention to detail
the image:
Noble one thoughtfully marks out the places for things in the four directions.
I got this hex before a driving test so I went to the test area and drove around noting all the different traffic conditions, signs, railroads etc.etc. so I would be more familiar with the terrain.

However,

like the small fox I failed the test and if this happen then the oracle says:
Soaks its tail,
Then no direction brings harvest.
then its time for a pause, but it doesnt mean failure, just trial and error really. But just make sure you stop before you get your head wet.

creating success.
success doesnt just come to you, you are in the act of creating it. Crossing the river is dangerous but I might just be worth it.

Thanks you, that's very helpful. It's often difficult to tease a definite meaning from a reading and while I was tending towards your interpretation, I would never have seen it as clearly without your clear and simple analysis.

I guess I'm gonna have to just cross the stream with as much right mindedness as possible and pay heed to the 'completion' of things as they unfold...
