Thread: Will XXX be President? 7.5.6 > 59

    The candidate will need to take some difficult decisions about their staff in order to succeed, place someone of experience at the head of the staff and hire specialists. Separation means that some people will need to leave.

    The outcome won't necessarily be a success at the election but the candidate may gain something useful out of this if the campaign is done the right way.

    7 - The will

    To solve their problems, one will need discipline and continuity.

    5 - Something useful can be obtained, the most experienced will be able to do it, another would damage it.

    6 - It is time to re-establish order after action, and for that one will need specialists.
    In the making
    59 - Separation

    One endures separation without opposing it by force.

    Thanks, taoscopy. In the days since I posted this thread, your comment has become a reality.

    I am not personally invested in any candidate; none represents all of my important issues. But I am fascinated by the messy process, which is exactly how democracy works -- when it works.

    Here we are, election night. My two candidates in question are still standing, returns not entirely in. Looks like either might win. My original interpretation was that XXX looked like a stronger candidate than XX.

    Care to make an educated guess, anyone? I have a strong preference, so don't trust my own interpretation.

    Also, how far ahead does the ICHING work?

    Default Candidate xxx won the election

    As it worked out, candidate XXX, Donald Trump is President elect, and candidate XX, Hillary Clinton, is not.

    When I threw the coins 15 months ago, I started with Trump because when I first saw him announce that he was seeking the Republican nomination, I saw him taking the oath of office on the Capitol steps surrounded by his family, an image that never left my mind's eye. Seemed improbable, as he was neither a Republican nor a politician.

    Later, I thought I should include the obvious Democrat nominee, Hillary.

    I read my original toss as a Trump win. But wanted to ask more expert IChingists for their interpretains as well.

    the other part of this experiment was seeing how far ahead one can ask a question about a topic that will be precisely answered in the future, in this case, Election Day 2016.

    All thoughts appreciated

    Taoscopy, you reoly, imo, comes closest to the way things worked out. Trump had a YUGE staff shakeout, hired extraordinarily shrewd political pros, and got the win because of it.

    7.5.6 as a very positive indication that XXX will be elected.

    Hi, interesting enough I also had hex 7 line 6 for Trump when I did a reading that pointed out that he would win the American presidency. I did a set of readings exploring different angles, getting both Trump and Clinton in perspective. So I didn't get hex 7.6 in isolation but it was already a strong indication (line 6 representing a ruler/commander/prince, all figures of power in charge of a new order after a war is won).

    My readings were a few days before the elections, yours months before, so it looks like time was not relevant, at least on this case.

    Looks like I failed to understand Yi's message about Trump (7.5.6).
    So 7.5 was saying reorganize staff/defeat opponents. Plain and simple - 'catch the birds'.
    No need to delve deep into commentary. Man did I get it wrong ..

    and 7.6 so simple, again - 'Shows the great ruler delivering his charges', appointing staff/ministers and etc. A clear depiction of becoming president.
    Transitional method misled me completely. Can't see how 29.6 applies here..

    Note to self: just read the lines, preferably the first part, without fortune/misfortune/evil part.

    p.s. Well, the far-fetched idea about 29.6 could be that he gets stuck with being a president for 3 years at least, whether he likes it or not.
