Nine in the fifth place:

Proud and arrogant.

One uses power heedlessly.

There is no one to rely on.

Even your partner will not help.

If one champions a worthy cause,

One will, in time, be forgiven.


…..The fifth place:  43. Breakthrough, Resoluteness

…..One pushes forward

…..And holds to one’s own priorities.

…..There will be a breakthrough.

…..People will move out of your way.


……….Nine in the fifth place:

……….Strength in position.

……….Holding firm to power.

……….One uses one’s social position

……….To increase influence


Technical Considerations of Line 5:

Solid in an odd place

Appropriate action

Firmness at the right time

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

No Holding Together

No Correspondence


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° Leo. 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.
