Hi everyone and hope you all have a beautiful weekend :)

... today I asked the Ging if a new business deal I am working on will be fortunate for me cos this business deal is extremely important for me

.. the Ging answered 54.5 < 58

... I take this as this business deal will give me a SMALL amount of success .. that this business will always be little and only prvide me with small income

...am I right here ?? .. forgive my many questions but I am really not very good at understanding the answers of the Ging yet

love to all of you
Nykki

For some reason I'm having trouble understanding your interpretation. But that may be because my understanding of Hexagram 54 is aberrant.

I think of 54.5 as being the most auspicious line of Hexagram 54, though I suppose it depends on whether you are the older or younger sister or someone else in the equation.

.... 54 means I am in an inferior position right ??? .. in line 5 I am still secondary (inferior position) and have to live in a lower position .. that is why I interpretated the way I did ... but maybe I am wrong ?????????
.. I am not so very experienced

..please more opinions ?? HELP

Line 54.5 presents the following situation:

A princess is getting married (= agreement).
Her dress is not as fancy as the younger girl's.
So, although the younger girl is more 'flashy', yet it's the plain-dress princess who gets married.
The moon is nearly full - then, good fortune.
And 58 means "exchange".

Someone prefers to marry the princess, even though they like the younger girl.

As related to your business, in order for it to be profitable and have lots of "exchange"...
you'll need to opt for plain/classic appearances, so as to acquire stability.
Stay away from fancy novelties. This is how I see your answer, good luck!

Hey there

What I see is that you may have minimal success but maybe not the success you thought, but you may realise thats ok for now and what you learn't now will help you get rewards later.

To me thats any new business in general you need to get it wrong sadly before you can get it right

I see it as extremely auspicious!

What is your position in this business?
I guess you're not in a leading position, yet fate smiles at you :)

Hi Nikky

I wouldn't invest with 54zhi58; in the best scenario, there could be a very small gain; but in the worst scenario, there could be a mayor loss.

In hex 54 undertakings lead to misfortune. Yes, line 5 is making the best out of an adverse circumstance but making the best of it is just doing not so bad. The way to make the best out of this is to give up as much as you can, you need to cut your gains, you need to share more than you expected. Therefore, the best scenario is one of very small gains.

But in hex 54 the line representing you is Chou (earth). Chou in the current month Mao (wood) is dead. That is not a good sign; you are not at your best game. The line repesenting the capital/gains is Mao, the same as the month; therefore, seems like a big investment, seems like you need to invest a lot of money and the money is strong. The active line is Shen (metal) and it is the black tortoise (thieves, robbery) and under the Sibling relative (colleague/competitor). The line Shen moves to destroy the capital (since metal destroys wood). The changed line is You (metal), that means advance, therefore the attack against the capital is stronger. Even if Mao is strong, the attack is very strong as well. Therefore, in the best scenario, the capital is hurt but can survive (minor gain) but in the worst case, there could be capital loss.
The changed hexagram is 58, that is a total conflict hexagram; a total conflict means quarrels, conflicts, misfortune.

Getting 54zhi58 in the month of Mao has a prediction of capital gains under severe distress, either by your business partner or by your competitors. Be cautious.

To me it doesn't say you'll have a small gain.

You start from a disadvantaged position, but you have more luck than the people in the higher position (than the elder sister). So it's of good promise :)

Its not terrible, you just will have to function as a follower and not try to lead, and it could be somewhat rewarding.

I think 54.5 is highly auspicious. One is in a less influential position yet actually has more influence than the one with status so one is a follower only in outer status. One's real status and influence is far greater than the one who has the actual 'title' or role. You will likely have seen such scenarios in everyday life. As for what you say here



oh god now I am getting really scared .. thank you so much to all .... oh so much hassle for the smallest survivial even ... I think I will not even do this... It will probably be better for me to not even try and to forget the whole thing .. Im sad now
...what on earth is there to be scared of in this reading ? :confused: It doesn't say there is much hassle for the smallest survival at all, it says merely the person with the lower status shines brighter than the one with the status. So if there are people above you who seem more influential the line is encouraging not to lose heart because titles don't mean much. A second wife might be preferred to the the primary wife even though the primary wife is the higher in status.

You must not not do things because you are alarmed by I Ching readings you don't understand, that's not the way to use it. If you do that then using the I Ching is limiting your life rather than supporting it and frankly if you are often 'scared' by readings as I often see you are, then you might be better off not consulting it at all as it only seems to alarm you and make you unhappy for no good reason.

BTW I always wonder why you call Yi the 'Ging' ?

the Ging answered 54.5 < 58
I wonder if you need a better book to help you, perhaps Hilary's book ? Then you may not get so scared.

Hilary's translation I took from wikiwing says

Di Yi marries off the maidens.
The first wife’s sleeves are not as fine as the younger sister’s.
The moon almost full, good fortune.’

So that's what the I Ching actually says...anything scary is what someone added afterwards and is their thoughts not the I Ching. If you can find something to be scared of in that you could find something scary in a rice pudding.
