Water above the fire: the image of the condition after completion. Thus the superior man considers misfortune and in advance prepares himself against it.
Success in small matters. Perseverance furthers. Good fortune at the beginning, turmoil at the end.Full text of Richard Wilhelm's 1924 translation by Cary F. Baynes

A detailed article on the subject can be found here: A Western Approximation
You can help the further development of no2DO by sending me the question you asked the I Ching and its response (the hexagram's name and number). Each hexagram's tendencies open up most clearly when examined in the context of a personal situation.
