I am at the end of a situation over which I have thrown the coins too many times. You know when you don't want to believe or can't figure out what the yi is saying because you don't accept it? Well, I've finally accepted it only now I am bereft.

My question: What can I do to get out of this funk?

12 standstill, moving lines 1,2,4 becoming 61 inner truth

???

I hope you will feel heartened when I say the worst is over for you now and with your hard-won acceptance of a painful truth this casting speaks of a paradigm shift in which you are able to get in touch with your inner truth and find wholeness and authenticity. And of course the truth will set you free for the next stage in life. Wishing you the best.

Thank you troubadour I appreciate your comment. Yes, I think acceptance is the action in itself. I don't need to actively do anything. Ho-hum. Life is funny sometimes.

I believe in karma - sweet and sour: it means we and those we hurt and those who hurt us - must accept the consequences of our behaviour. The only way out - as you say- is acceptance. Salaam.

12.1.2.4 > 61


Prune deadwood. Cut back to the vitals and reorganize externals.

Thus the superior man falls back upon his inner worth
In order to escape the difficulties.

The lines are auspicious. What does Caput Draconis mean to you?

What does caput draconis mean to me? The North node.
I meant its symbolic value. The reason I asked is because I consider Caput Draconis to be the cosmic correlative of hexagram 61.

Thinking about it some more, sometimes it mocks me. Maybe looking at both hexagrams the answer is a simple "No, Zero."
as in "no more questions about this BS, you failed."
Now I'm staring at the whole in that big fat zero and thinking, what's through there?

In reality you are better than your circumstances. I have failed at many things, but that hasn't kept me down. You are a much younger person than I, I think, and where there's life, there's hope. If imagination led you into misfortune, imagination can lead you out of it. Why not follow the dragon's head and see what is the best you can make of this moment now?

If Zhong fu [61] is the dragon's head, then what is the tail? Xiao Guo [62]?

61 & 62 correlate to the shen (spirit), symbolized by the crane. 63 & 64 correlate to the gui (ghost), symbolized by the fox.
61: Caput Draconis descending (the moon above and moving toward ecliptic).
62: Caput Draconis ascending. The moon is above the ecliptic and moving toward its zenith. The shen goes to heaven.
63: Cauda Draconis ascending. The moon is below and moving toward the ecliptic. The ghost haunts the home.
64: Cauda Draconis descending. The moon is moving toward its nadir. The ghost is finished.

No one else shares this interpretation. Nevertheless, I believe it is King Wen's view.
