"Falling into an Abyss"- Any attempt to fight what is happening could make the situation worse. True surrender is your savior. Resistance is futile. Ride out the current bad situation and soon it will be over.

This hexagram references the positive concepts of anticipation and expectation. A time of growing power and energies which have not yet revealed themselves.
