The unexpected signifies extraneous misfortune.
Under heaven thunder rolls: all things attain the natural state of innocence. Thus the ancient kings, rich in virtue and in accordance with the seasons, cultivated and nurtured all beings.
Innocence. Sublime success. Perseverance furthers. If someone is not right, he has misfortune, and it does not further to undertake anything.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.
