Corners of the mouth (27) signifies proper nourishment.
At the foot of the mountain is thunder: the image of nourishment. Thus the superior man takes care of his words and is moderate in eating and drinking.
The corners of the mouth. Perseverance brings good fortune. Pay heed to nourishment and to what one seeks to fill his own mouth with.Full text of Richard Wilhelm's 1924 translation by Cary F. Baynes

Follow the Path of the Dao: A Western Approximation
The interpretations shown above gradually moved away from Eastern concepts. Let us proceed even a little further. In this section I develop a model of interpretation from a Western perspective, more precisely: from the perspective of philosophical anthropology.
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.
