Hexagram 11 Line 5

01a-IC-R-S 02TA-04-Hx11 Peace-L5

Six in the fifth place:

One is impressed by the confidence of others.

There is no contention here

Just humble receptivity.


…..The fifth place:  23. Splitting Apart

…..Someone falls away.

…..One lets them go.

…..They will be welcome to return

…..When they choose to do so.


……….Six in the fifth place:

……….Nothing is forced.

……….Personal priorities will be put aside.

……….One must care for the weak and the small

……….And feed the hungry.

Technical Considerations of Line 5:

Broken in an odd place

Inappropriate receptivity

Yielding at the wrong time

(Astrological note: This place concerns the affairs of Houses 9 and 10)

No Holding Together

Inner Correspondence: Approval and support from Line 2

(Astrological note: Approval and support from Houses 3 and 4)


Trigrams of Influence:

Upper Nuclear

Upper Primary

Zodiac Considerations (Sub-Pentans) for the Fifth 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.
