Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

As is written in many places in the I Ching: "It is good to have someplace to go."

"It is not necessary to have hope in order to persevere."

I Ching reading for the Velocity of Unemployment:

The present is embodied in Hexagram 1 - Ch'ien (The Creative): That which is great and originating, penetrating, advantageous, correct and firm.

In the second line, undivided, we see the dragon appearing in the field. It will be advantageous to meet with the great man.

In the third line, undivided, we see the superior man active and vigilant all the day, and in the evening still careful and apprehensive. The position is dangerous, but there will be no mistake.

The situation is shifting, and Yin (the passive feminine force) is gaining ground.

The future is embodied in Hexagram 25 - Wu Wang (The Unexpected): Great progress and success is indicated, while there will be advantage in being firm and correct. If he or his action be not correct, he will fall into errors, and it will not be advantageous for him to move in any direction.

The things most apparent, those above and in front, are embodied by the upper trigram Chi'en (Heaven), which represents strength and creativity.

The things least apparent, those below and behind, are embodied by the lower trigram Chi'en (Heaven), which is transforming into Chen (Thunder). As part of this process, strength and creativity are giving way to movement, initiative, and action.

So there you have it.
