Hexagram-9-Hsiao-ChuThe trigram above – SUN – The Gentle, Wind
The trigram below – CH’IEN – The Creative, Heaven

General: When great changes are not possible then small changes should be undertaken.

Love: Develop your communication skills within your relationship and make sure you have fun.

Business: Assess your business to see if there are any small matters that need to be dealt with.

Personal: Developing your skills and strengths should be your main focus.

This hexagram means the force of the small – the power of the shadowy – that restrains, tames, impedes. A weak line in the fourth place, that of the minister, holds the five strong lines in check. In the Image it is the wind blowing across the sky. the wind restrains the clouds, the rising breath of the Creative, and makes them grow dense, but as yet is not strong enough to turn them to rain. The hexagram presents a configuration of circumstances in which a strong element is temporarily held in leash by a weak element. It is only through.
