I Ching hexagrams interpretation
I Ching Hexagram 33: Tun - Retreat
Tun - Retreat stands for rising power of the dark. Retreat to the light signifies that what returns to stillness will not be harmed by the rising power. Retreat is the correct way in order not to waste energy.
I Ching interpretation / The Judgement
If you draw this I Ching hexagram with the online I Ching oracle this means that: you should accept that due to the polarity of life also the dark forces manifest themselves from time to time.
The advice by Tun - Retreat is to literally retreat yourself and observe that what is. To resist at this time will fuel the negative emotions that are related to these inferior elements leading to misfortune.
Retreat should not be confused with flight. Retreat is a sign of strength, which is different than flight where someone or something saves itself under any circumstance.
I Ching lines interpretation
The I Ching hexagram consists of six lines. If lines are changing in your online I Ching Oracle consultation these should be included in your I Ching interpretation as well. Furthermore the I Ching lines have their separate interpretation.
The bottom I Ching line deals with reality, that what is. The second line is related to how you connect to others. Cause and effect how do you react?
The third line deals with your emotions and how to cope with them. The fourth line is related to making choices in order to remain on track. The fifth line represents the organising aspect of things.
It involves leadership, following up on ideals and planning. The I Ching top line has to do with spirituality. It concerns your tao, beliefs, religion and more.
First Line - I Ching interpretation
Be careful that you are not the last one to retreat. In the tail you are closest to the pursuing enemy.
Second Line - I Ching interpretation
The superior man holds on to his core principles. If he does so no one can tear him loose.
Third Line - I Ching interpretation
If one retreats do so with 100% acceptance as a halted retreat may lead to misfortune. Good fortune will follow if one keeps initiative.
Fourth Line - I Ching interpretation
Only the inferior man will obtain misfortune as the superior man retreats. As the inferior man will loose its guidance and the superior man at the same time remains true to proper principles, the inner truth.
Fifth Line - I Ching interpretation
Do not focus on irrelevant considerations. Clear and concise action is needed in order for a proper retreat. This leads to good fortune.
Sixth Line - I Ching interpretation
The way ahead is clear. The freedom is available to pursue good fortune.
The I Ching hexagram consists of two trigrams. Above Ch'ien - Heaven and below Kên - Mountain.
