44. Kou / Coming to Meet
above Ch'ien The Creative, Heaven
below Sun The Gentle, Wind
Coming to Meet. The maiden is powerful.
One should not marry such a maiden.
Under heaven, wind:
The image of Coming to Meet.
Thus does the prince act when disseminating his commands
And proclaiming them to the four quarters of heaven.
Change at the beginning means:
It must be checked with a brake of bronze.
Perseverance brings good fortune.
If one lets it take its course, one experiences misfortune.
Even a lean pig has it in him to rage around.
Change in the second place means:
There is a fish in the tank. No blame.
Does not further guests.
Change in the third place means:
There is no skin on his thighs,
And walking comes hard.
If one is mindful of the danger,
No great mistake is made.
Change in the fourth place means:
No fish in the tank.
This leads to misfortune.
Change in the fifth place means:
A melon covered with willow leaves.
Then it drops down to one from heaven.
Change at the top means:
He comes to meet with his horns.
Humiliation. No blame.
