I Ching Hexagram 36 - Ming I
I Ching Hexagram: 36

Name: Ming I.

Keyphrase: The darkening of the light.

Formed By The Trigrams: Earth over Fire.


General: Concealing your light when danger is around is an effective way of avoiding detection.

Love: Detach yourself from the issue and do not reveal your true feelings.

Business: This is not a good time to start any new ventures.

Personal: Use this time to work on your inner strengths until the current obstructions pass.


Overview: Ming I is very much about caution and the need to keep a low profile. It is harder to travel by night than it is by day. But is also easier to give yourself away if you show your light. Don't try and make any further progress right now. Now is not the time to issue a challenge or to take anybody on. Keep a low profile and bide your time while strengthening you resources.
