Changing line #2
"A Dragon Appears in the Field" - Greatness and prominence are different things. One can be great long before one achieves success. A seriousness and intensity of purpose mark one destined for great things. True greatness is shown by example.

"Vigilance all Day, Apprehension by Night" - A constant defence of ones principles is needed. Creation requires constant effort and a wellspring of energy. Be cautious of forces that would lead astray or take advantage of a lapse in focus.
Changing line #4
"The Dragon Soars up from the Depths" - Choices are at hand that will have profound effects on future direction. Remember that neither choice is right or wrong. They are simply reflections of your true self. Reflect not on the question, but on the path to which you belong.

Shoulder your responsibility wisely. Let forces combine for greater abundance and let your inner drive propel you forward.
