I Ching & the U.S. Presidential Election – 3

I Ching & Presidential Election – 3
September 4th 2016

This is the third in a series of I Ching consultations about the US presidential election.
The first was done on July 23rd and the I Ching told us that DJT was not qualified to be president; that it was an overreach on his part.

As for HRC we were told she was over-prepared and suffered from a feeling of immobility and paralysis.

But things change and these queries are about the current situation for each candidate at the time of asking.
The second set of readings were done on August 27th after the conventions.

The I Ching said HRC was looking good. “Dressed in white” is the translation of  the line in the I Ching – the color she wore at the convention.
DJT, we were told, had not gone so far off track that he could not still make a recovery if he changed course now.

Today: September 4th we ask again about the two contenders.

HRC?
Hexagram 33, Heaven over the Mountain, with line one moving.
This hexagram is about achieving or maintaining a secure position, protecting oneself from destabilizing attacks and taking to the high ground.
Line one tells us that HRC is vulnerable to enemy attacks.
The strategy recommended is to give the enemy nothing to latch on to.
HRC’s exposed flanks are the e-mail and Clinton Foundation scandals and her perceived lack of empathy.
She must protect herself without appearing defensive and likable without appearing weak.
A difficult task.

DJT?
Hexagram 13, Heaven over Fire with line 6 moving.
This hexagram is about the value of making friends, cooperation, a positive vision with clear objectives presented with affinity and empathy.
Line 6 warns us that his influence is limited to rural areas and the fringe of the population.
There is a lack of broad support and cooperation, and your forces are weak.
DJT’s task is to be inclusive, open and friendly.
DJT is now attempting to broaden his appeal without losing his base.
However he presents himself as a savior against dark forces rather than a leader seeking the advice and help of others in achieving a grand vision.
This will be to his detriment.

Best – Rod
