The meaning of hexagram #9
This hexagram indicates dark clouds on the horizon. There is still no rain, and the clouds do not appear to be moving closer because the wind keeps them at bay. The underlying meaning here is that a weak force is capable of restraining a stronger force. Subtlety is called for here. Negotiation will beat direct force and charm will prove to be stronger than coercion. There is still time.

"Join the Return"- An obstacle faced at this time may be avoided by watching the course taken by others. You will not the first to have arrived at this place, nor will you be the last.

"Sincere Attachment Brings Rewards"- The synergy between two parties or people is greater than the energy of each individual. This changing line, near the top of this hexagram, references the additional power that can be created by a combination of forces. Romance and favorable business partnerships are referenced here.

Enjoy the shifting appearances, but don't over indulge in them or they will distract you from true value.
