K'un The receptive, Tierra. K'un the receptive, Land. This hexagram is exclusively formed by broken lines, which represent darkness, manageability, the receptive power of yin.

It represents nature in contrast with spirit, land in contrast with sky, space in contrast with time, the female- mother in contrast with the male- father.Applied to human beings' subjects, the idea of harmony not only includes the relationship between women and men, but also that of Prince and Minister, and between father and son. Moreover, this duality exists between the spiritual world and that of senses. In evey case, there is a clear jerarquic relationship: The Receptive is as important as The Creative, but its devotion's attribute clearly defines its position in relation to the Creative. The Receptive has to be activated and guided by The Creative, it's only there when brings about advantages. Danger comes when it gives up its position and tries to equals The Creative.

We are about arriving at a stage in which will be better not to take the leadership. It won't be the time of own enterprises, but submission, maybe to a stronger personality. Things carried out, however, will bring about results, and success will be far with us. Don't move forward until you know very well the type of movement and the road to it. Doing this, we'll find good company and job. Great success.
