Hexagram 50 Ting – The Cauldron

Fire over Wind

Nourish what is good within yourself for the benefit of society at large.

General: The nourishment of body, mind and spirit is the key to a harmonious existence.

Love: Enjoying the harmonious aspects of your relationship will help deepen the bonds between you and your partner.

Business: Focus on business that will transform your affairs and make sure that you deal with everything in a sophisticated manner.

Personal: Strengthen the bonds between you and those most important to you by hosting a meal of some sort.

Overview: Ting is very much concerned with the provision of necessities for a community to exist harmoniously. Unlike Ching, which deals with the basics, Ting is about the “extras”. The sharing of a well-prepared meal is a ritual throughout the world for cultivation the bonds between people. As well as providing for the body Ting reminds you that the spiritual “extras” should not be overlooked.
