The Caldron


The Caldron. Supreme good fortune.



Fire over wood:

The image of the Caldron.

Thus the superior man consolidates his fate

By making his position correct.

6. The cauldron has rings of jade. Great good fortune. Nothing that would not act to further.

5. The cauldron has yellow handles, golden carrying rings. Perseverance furthers.

4. The legs of the cauldron are broken. The prince's meal is spilled And his person is soiled. Misfortune.

3. The handle of the cauldron is altered. One is impeded in his way of life. The fat of the pheasant is not eaten. Once rain falls, remorse is spent. Good fortune comes in the end.

2. There is food in the cauldron. My comrades are envious, But they cannot harm me. Good fortune.

1. A cauldron with legs upturned. Furthers removal of stagnating stuff. One takes a concubine for the sake of her son. No blame.
