Upper Trigram:Tui, Joy, a Lake
Lower Trigram:Ken, Inaction, a Mountain
Governing Rulers:Nine in the fourth place
Nine in the fifth place

The Image
A lake on top of the mountain: the image of Hsien. The superior man, in accordance with this, keeps his mind free from pre-occupation, and open to receive the influences of others.

Miscellaneous Signs
Effect quick answering cause, in Hsien appears; While Heng denotes continuance for years.

The Judgement
Hsien indicates that, on the fulfilment of the conditions implied in it, there will be free course and success. Its advantageousness will depend on the being firm and correct, as in marrying a young lady. There will be good fortune.

Hsien means mutual influence. The weak trigram above, and the strong one below; their influences moving and responding to one another, and thereby forming a union; the repression of the one and the satisfaction of the other, where male is placed below female: all these things convey the notion of a 'free and successful course on the fulfilment of the conditions implied in it, while the advantage will depend on the being firm and correct, as in marrying a young lady; and there will be good fortune'.
Heaven and earth exert their influences, and there ensue the transformations and production of all things. The sages influence the minds of men, and the result is harmony and peace all under the sky. Looking at the method and issues of those influences, the true character of heaven and earth and of all things can be seen.
