#53, line 5, #23
…in this situation, oppressors are violently seizing power. Pay special heed when you receive this hexagram, because the oracle is often warning you of a situation of which you are totally unaware. You are about to be blindsided. Others follow you like fish on a line. The tide turns as you bring order from the chaos.
Here, in immediate proximity to the strong, light-giving principle at the top, the nature of the dark force undergoes a change. It no longer opposes the strong principle by means of intrigues but submits to its guidance. The situation marks a rising to new heights. As you climb for a better view of the panorama, you make yourself more conspicuous to those below.
