I Ching Hexagram 8: Pi - Holding Together (Union)
Pi - Holding Together stands for strong will combined with union. Complementation is an integral part of union. One who sees differences as complements instead of as hindrances will reap most benefits.
True union can only occur if the inner truth is respected. One who neglects its own inner truth will not build a sustainable union.
I Ching interpretation / The Judgement
If you draw this I Ching hexagram with the online I Ching oracle this means that:
desire for union is present. It requires greatness of spirit and perseverance to accomplish it.
Trying to unite will undoubtedly also come with fear, doubt and anxiety. One needs to be up for this challenge and ensure that its own inner strength is sufficiently present.
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
Fundamental sincerity is the only basis for long lasting relationships. The sincerity from within will attract good fortune to itself from without.
Second Line - I Ching interpretation
Stay true to yourself. If one seeks association with others without respecting his own inner truth he throws himself away
Third Line - I Ching interpretation
Watch out for being drawn into false intimacy. There is danger in trying to unite with people that do not belong to your own sphere. Remain sociable but be careful with intimacy.
Fourth Line - I Ching interpretation
Remain true to your inner self and its corresponding proper principles. This will create good fortune.
Fifth Line - I Ching interpretation
Cultivate your own purity and strength. This will attract what is just for you. Proper relationships flow from proper principles.
Sixth Line - I Ching interpretation
Ensure the start is right. If the start is not right there is no right ending. Pay attention to each step in order to arrive at good fortune.
