The original explanation of qian diagram
Yuan refers to the root of source, primitive and all things; Heng refers to prosperity and success; Li refers to profit and achievement; Zhen refers to chastity, high morality and righteousness. Yuan/Hen/Li/Zhen is the law of the development of all things. From the beginning, development, to the persistence of struggle, growth and achievement, we should maintain high moral character after the achievement, and can't do anything against morality, so as to keep the prosperity and smooth all the time.
The explanations of six trigrams
First nine: time is not mature, need to wait for the opportunity, can't be aggressive;
Nine two: After time and experience accumulation, we have the ability to make a career. We should take the initiative to find opportunities to cooperate with others and achieve our own career;
Nine three: A man of ability and virtue is always diligent in the day and self-examination in the night. Although he is in a difficult situation, he can solve it even if he encounters difficulties;
Nine four: In the stage of career or growth, it may encounter difficulties and obstacles, and it may develop smoothly. As long as it is adjusted according to the actual situation, it is necessary to choose appropriate opportunities to get rid of difficulties;
Nine five: Just like the loong flying in the sky, the talented people have finally ushered in the opportunity to make great achievements after some efforts. Both status and intelligence have reached the mature stage;
Above nine：Things should be adjusted and converged when they develop to a certain height. If they continue to develop unchecked, they will encounter disasters. Everything needs to be controlled.
