Today: “Nearing Completion.  Things will resolve in time of their own accord.” – from the I Ching

Nearing Completion.  Things will resolve in time of their own accord.  No need to rush it. Any undo influence will adversely affect the outcome.
Practice graceful restraint.

Read the text from Richard Wilhelm's and subsequent translations of the I Ching

#64, Line 5, #9

Fire ascends above the Water:
The Superior Person examines the nature of things and keeps each in its proper place.
Too anxious the young fox gets his tail wet, just as he completes his crossing.
To attain success, be like the man and not like the fox.
True to himself to the end, inner light radiates from him and warms others in the glow.
Good fortune.
No matter what you do, the fruit of your labors never seems to ripen.
Your reward remains just out of reach.
Men have gone mad from such anticipation.
Don’t lose your balance lunging for the brass ring.
While the Fates continue to restrain you, go them one better and display a self-generated restraint and grace.
Look for the humor in the situation.
