In one way the Chinese Year of the Earth-Dog ( loyal and generous ) is very special: The occurrence of some I Ching Hexagram in long sequence, that means for a long period of time. It signifies that, during this year, most of the days only have * or ** stars enlightened, that in general we are moving in the material, earthly part of the existence and the I Cing trinity (Earth-Human-Heaven).
On a zero, one ( * ) and two ( ** ) star day, there is no change of an I Ching Hexagram! For that reason an I Ching Oracle entity can exists for a long time, even nearly a month.
Here below you find a list of the I Ching number, which occur the most days in this year.
Hexagram 14 ( Heaven below; Fire above ) = Wealth happens in total for 40 days, mainly in springtime ( march and April), but also in autumn.
Hexagram 44( Wind below; Heaven above ) = Coming to meet occurs for 38 days, mainly in December and even enlightened in January 2007!
Hexagram 30 ( Fire below; Fire above ) = The Clinging exists for 37 days in this year, mainly in august 2006.
Hexagram 26( Heaven below; Mountain above ) = The taming power of the Great happens totally for 30 days in this year, mainly in October 2006.
Hexagram 1 ( Heaven below; Heaven above ) = The Creative occurs for21 days, mainly end November, beginning December.
Hexagram 33 ( Mountain below; Heaven above ) = retreat exists for 19days, mainly in February 2006, also in November.
Hexagram 9 ( Heaven below; Wind above ) = The taming power of the Gentle happens for 13 days, mainly November 2006 and February 2007.
Notice how many times Heaven plays a role, especially when you look at the trigrams, which constitutes the hexagram and wonder how the yin – yang process functions in this year, so magical and of a great cosmic order.
44( Wind below; Heaven above ) Coming to meet is opposite to 9 ( Heaven below; Wind above )The taming power of the Gentle.
26 ( Heaven below; Mountain above ) The taming power of the Gentleis opposite to
33 ( Mountain below; Heaven above ) retreat !!!
All this is very interesting and could be more deepened by reading the specific I Ching Oracle yourself. One can see that there is a very deep harmony in the cosmic processing of the stars! I hope that all of you get the good advice of the holy book in due time.
Sarvamangalam (that all sentient beings may be happy), Manoj.
