I Ching Hexagram 64 - Wei Chi
I Ching Hexagram: 64

Name: Wei Chi.

Keyphrase: Before completion.

Formed By The Trigrams: Fire over Water.


General: You will need to be especially vigilant in the last few yards to success.

Love: If you wish to achieve your goal within your relationship, you must not allow yourself to be distracted.

Business: Focus on achieving your business goals and do not allow yourself to be distracted.

Personal: Do not allow pride or impatience to get in the way of the success that is so near.


Overview: Wei Chi relates to that short period of time that precedes success. When victory is in sight it is easy to take it for granted and not concentrate on your goals. The end of a chapter in your life is approaching and this is an especially dangerous time when all you have achieved can by undone through inattention. Wei Chi is just like the old saying "don't count your chickens before they're hatched". Remain alert to danger and stay focused on the tasks at hand. This way Wei Chi will indicate a successful conclusion.
