50. Ting / The Caldron
above Li The Clinging, Flame
below Sun The Gentle, Wind
The Caldron. Supreme good fortune.
Fire over wood:
The image of The Caldron.
Thus the superior man consolidates his fate
By making his position correct.
Change at the beginning means:
A ting with legs upturned.
Furthers removal of stagnating stuff.
One takes a concubine for the sake of her son.
Change in the second place means:
There is food in the ting.
My comrades are envious,
But they cannot harm me.
Change in the third place means:
The handle of the ting is altered.
One is impeded in his way of life.
The fat of the pheasant is not eaten.
Once rain falls, remorse is spent.
Good fortune comes in the end.
Change in the fourth place means:
The legs of the ting are broken.
The prince's meal is spilled
And his person is soiled.
Change in the fifth place means:
The ting has yellow handles, golden carrying rings.
Change at the top means:
The ting has rings of jade.
Great good fortune.
Nothing that would not act to further.
