Zodiac Considerations (Sub-Pentans) for the Fourth Place:

This is one of the six lines (3 solid and 3 broken) that neutralize themselves at 15° Taurus. In the I Ching there are a total of 24 such neutral lines. This allows for an exact correspondence between 360° of the Zodiac and the remaining 360 lines of the I Ching.

It happens in the middle of each of the fixed signs, where the cardinal forces meet the mutable forces.
