Elements: Earth over Earth
Image: The Earth condition brings receptive devotion. The wise man that has breadth of character carries the outer world.
Judgement: K’un is about sublime success. Furthering through the perseverance of a mare. If the superior man tries to lead, he goes astray. If he follows, he finds guidance. It is good to find friends on the west and south and to forego friends on the east and north. Quiet perseverance leads to good fortune.
Interpretation: K'un is pure Yin, indicating a beneficial time in a case you listen to the advices of others whom you trust and respect. Listening to their advices is the only way to make progress. If you disregard their advices by not bothering to listen, then your plans will fail and there will be no progress.
