"The I Ching is one of the oldest Ancient Chinese Texts. The book contains a divination system comparable to Western Geomancy or the West Aftrica Ifá System. In Western Cultures and modern East Asia, it is still widely used for this purpose.

The standard text originated from the ancient text 古文經 transmitted by Fei Zhi (c. 50 BC-10 AD) of the Han Dynasty... During the Warring States period this text was re-interpreted as a system of Cosmology and Philosophy that subsequently became intrinsic to Chinese Culture. It centered on the ideas of the dynamic balances of opposites, the evolution of events as a process, and acceptance of the inevitability of change."

Wikipedia Article on the Book of Changes

If you are unfamiliar with the I Ching, it is a series of 64 Hexagrams which consists of six vertical broken or unbroken lines representing; yin or yang, 6 or 9, or SQUARE or a CIRCLE. Each Hexagram consists of two out of eight Primary (outer) Trigrams and two Nuclear (Inner) Trigrams.


Ch'ien the Creative, K'un the Receptive, Chên the Arousing, K'an the Abysmal,
Kên Keeping Still, Sun the Gentle, Li the Clinging, and Tui the Joyous.

Each Trigram symbolizes their own Attribute, Image, Family Member, Animal, Color, Body Part, Direction, and others. The Attributes for the Trigrams that arise will be brought up as they come along.

There are many different ways to draw up Hexagrams for situations such as flipping coins, or drawing yarrow stalks. Those are just the most common ways of doing so. Carl Jung coined the term Synchronicity to describe how this works.

I'm going to choose the Starting Hexagram for this reading and introduce the next Hexagrams as the Nuclear Trigrams determine. I'm to going to present the Hexagrams, their Images, Names, and what the Lines mean. (cited from the Wilhelm/Baynes translation of the I Ching)

Below every Image, Judgment, and Lines I'm going to offer my own interpretation of the I Ching for the situation of the Deep Water Horizon. Also links as they come up as necessary for some interpretations.


On the 57th day since the April 20th BP Oil Spill, Barack Obama addressed the United States about the Federal Governments plans to deal with the disaster.

Text of Obamas Speech

After the address I decided consult the I Ching about the situation. I Started with the 57th Hexagram.


57. Sun / The Gentle (The Penetrating, Wind)

"Sun is one of the eight doubled trigrams. It is the eldest daughter and symbolizes wind or wood; it has for its attribute gentleness, which nonetheless penetrates like the wind or like growing wood with its roots.
The dark principle, in itself rigid and immovable, is dissolved by the penetrating light principle, to which it subordinates itself in gentleness. In nature, it is the wind that disperses the gathered clouds, leaving the sky clear and serene. In human life it is penetrating clarity of judgment that thwarts all dark hidden motives. In the life of the community it is the powerful influence of a great personality that uncovers and breaks up those intrigues which shun the light of day."

Primary Trigrams: Sun the Gentle, Sun the Gentle
Nuclear Trigrams: Li the Clinging Fire, Tui the Joyous Lake

THE GENTLE. Success through what is small.
It furthers one to have somewhere to go.
It furthers one to see the great man.

“The hole of the well is small but success is met through certain interests’ perspectives.
It moves forces to react to the consequences of those interests.
People perish and descent to the next realm.”

Winds following upon the other:
Thus the superior man
Spreads his commands abroad.
And carries out his undertakings.

“The Wind carries the ramifications of the spill towards inland.
More Perish due to contaminated and toxic air.
The wind spreads the contamination,
And carries the undertakings of the East.”

Six at the beginning means:
In advancing and in retreating,
The perseverance of a warrior furthers.

“The Disaster advances while civilians retreat.
The human intuition grows stronger.”

Nine in the second place means:
Penetration under the bed.
Priests and magicians are used in great number.
Good Fortune. No blame.

“The well penetrated beneath the sea bed,
Occult energy surrounds the incident.
Good for the Occult. No one is convicted.

Nine in the third place means:
Repeated penetration. Humiliation.

“Constant drilling for oil. Disaster Occurs.”

Six in the fourth place means:
Remorse vanishes.
During the hunt
Three kinds of game are caught.

“Sympathy of those responsible is no longer there.
Birds, Fish, and Humans was of life are threatened.”

Nine in the fifth place means:
Perseverance brings good fortune.
Remorse vanishes.
Nothing that does not further.
No beginning, but and end.
Before the change, three days.
After the change, three days.
Good fortune.

“The wealth of the guilty brings good fortune.
No sympathy by those.
No one is convicted.
No better conditions but dead zones.
(I can’t decipher the next two lines but they are in synchronicity with Before Completion (Hx. 64) and After Completion (Hx. 63).)

Nine at the top means:
Penetration under the bed.
He loses his property and his ax.
Perseverance brings misfortune.

“Drilling beneath the sea bed.
The rig explodes and workers perish.
Skipping safety steps brings the Disaster.”

Now we take the Nuclear Trigrams of Sun; Li the Clinging, Fire and Tui the Joyous, Lake. We get the 38th Trigram K'uei / Opposition.


This hexagram is composed of the trigram Li above, i.e., flame, which burns upward, and Tui below, i.e., the lake, which seeps downward. These two movements are in direct contrast. Furthermore, Li is the second daughter and Tui the youngest daughter, and although they live in the same house they belong to different men; hence their wills are not the same but are divergently directed. (Like Gas, Fire, over the Gulf)

Methane Levels in the Gulf Rise

OPPOSTION. In small matters, good fortune.

“In the Eyes of a Small Group the Situation could have Good Fortune.”

Nine at the beginning means:
Remorse disappears.
If you lose your horse, do not run after it;
It will come back of its own accord.
When you see evil people,
Guard yourself against mistakes.

“The Small Group loses Sympathy for the “Small,”
The rig sinks, don’t collect the oil, karma will turn its wheel.
Out of Greed the Small Group makes, it’s Serfs Revolt.”

Nine in the second place means:
One meets his lord in a narrow street.
No Blame.

“People leave this realm due to a small well in a huge lake.
No one is convicted.”

BP Executive Calls People "SMALL"
11 Dead at Rig Explosion

Six in the third place means:
One sees the wagon dragged back, The oxen halted,
A man’s hair and nose cut off.
Not a good beginning, but a good end.

“The World sees the Rig Sink, The Drilling Haulted,
BP’s pipe and well cut off.
Not a good disaster, but good to the end of hollowing the Earth.”

Offshore Drilling Halted

Nine in the fourth place means:
Isolated through opposition,
One meets a like-minded man
With whom one can associate in good faith.
Despite the danger, no blame.


“Tony Hayward is isolated due to the situation,
But the U.S. Government
Which whose Representatives are Lobbied by BP
Cover Each Other.
Even though the Ramifications are Unfathomable No One is Covicted.”


Six in the Fifth Place Means:
Remorse disappears.
The companion bites his way through the wrappings.
If one goes to him,
How could it be a mistake?

”Sympathy from TPTB never shows,
BP and The Gov’t of the U.S. lie and manipulate the truth.
The Citizens read their filtered news,
They believe what they’re told.”

Nine at the top means:
Isolated through opposition,
One sees one’s companion as a pig covered with dirt,
As a wagon full of devils.
First one draws a bow against him,
Then one lays the bow aside.
He is not a rover; he will woo at the right time.
As one goes, rain falls then good fortune comes.

“The Citizens feel betrayed,
They see their government as suppressive and misleading,
A facist state,
They rise against but the States forces surrender.
They aren’t quitters, and nature acts to protect the righteous”.

Now we take the Nuclear Trigrams of K’uei; K’an The Abysmal, Water and Li The Clinging, Fire. We get the 63rd Trigram Chi Chi / After Completion.


63. Chi Chi / After Completion

This hexagram is the evolution of T’ai PEACE (11). The transition from confusion to order is completed, and everything is in its proper place even in particulars. The strong lines are in the strong places, the weak lines in the weak places. This is a very favorable outlook, yet it gives reason for thought. For it is just when perfect equilibrium has been reached that any movement may cause order to revert to disorder. The one strong line that moved to the top, thus effecting complete order in details, is followed by the other lines, each moving according to its nature, and thus suddenly there arises again the hexagram P’I, STANDSTILL (12).
Hence the present hexagram indicates the conditions of a time of climax, which necessitate the utmost caution.

AFTER COMPLETION. Success in small matters.
Perseverance furthers.
At the beginning good fortune,
At the end disorder.

“After the Well is completed, drilling is successful in the beginning.
BP pushes the limits,
Then disaster occurs.”

BP Skips Steps in Safety Protocol

Water over fire: the image of condition
Thus the superior man
Takes thought of misfortune
And arms himself against it in advance.

“The batholiths (which emits methane) is below the sea floor,
Then the nature of the Earth takes turn for the worse,
It reacts to the actions of humanity.”

Batholith Thread

Methane Levels Rise in Gulf

Nine at the beginning means:
He brakes his wheels.
He gets his tail in the water.
No blame.

“The rig explodes, it sinks, No Conviction.”

Six in the second place means:
The woman loses the curtain of her carriage.
Do not run after it;
On the seventh day you will get it.

“BP loses its Well of its profits,
They don’t completely act upon the incident;
Soon after they’ll feel the pressure.”

Nine in the third place means:
The Illustrious Ancestor
Disciplines the Devil’s Country.
After three years he conquers it.
Inferior people must not be employed.

“England, The Mother Country of the U.S.
Cause Disaster to the New Babylon (Atlantis)
On the third year of the new executive England succeeds.
The Proletariat are in Dismay.”

Six in the fourth place means:
The finest clothes turn to rags.
Be careful all day long.

“The Most Glorious Country goes into another depression after a near economic collapse and recession.
Every citizen and their families are on their own guard.”

Nine in the fifth place means:
The neighbor in the east who slaughters an ox
Does not attain as much real happiness
As the neighbor in the west
With his small offering.

“England destroys the gulf,
And doesn’t feel the pain as the U.S.
With England Only Suffering slightly minor economic ramifications.”

Six at the top means:
He gets his head in the water. Danger.

“England’s well sinks, the Disaster Occurs. "

We we take the Nuclear Trigrams of Chi Chi; Li The Clinging, Fire and K’an The Abysmal, Water. We get the 64th Hexagram Wei Chi / Before Completion.

But if the little fox, after nearly completing the crossing,
Gets his tail in the water,
There is nothing that would further.

“Before 4/20 there is success,
But before the well is cleared,
It explodes and sinks into the water,
All other offshore drilling is haulted.”

Fire over water:
The image of the condition before transition.
Thus the superior man is careful
In the differentiation of things.
So that each finds its place.

“Methane rises in the atmosphere from the Gulf.
The Step before the Climax of the Climax,
The Worlds Leaders are following their orders,
So everything follows their plan,”

Six at the beginning means:
He gets his tail in the water.

“The Rig Sinks,
The People become Infurious.”

Nine in the second place means:
He brakes his wheels.
Perseverance brings good fortune.

“After their mistakes,
They bribe their way to innocence.”

BP Gulf Relief Fund

Six in the third place means:
Before completion, attack brings misfortune.
It furthers one to cross the great water.

“Before the planned welling is done an explosion occurs,
Crude oil embarks towards the shores.”

Hayward Sells Stocks Weeks Before Spill

Nine in the fourth place means:
Perseverance brings good fortune.
Remorse disappears.
Shock, thus to disciple the Devil’s Country.
For three years, great realms are awarded.

“Paying their way through lobbying,
The blame is ignored.
A question of morality disciplines the U.S.
The beginning of a new age occurs.”

Six in the fifth place means:
Perseverance brings good fortune.
No remorse.
The light of the superior man is true,
Good fortune.

“The people unite a bring upon a new era.
Thought they have to deal with the ramifications of the past, Time is going towards a positive direction.
The will of Nature will prevail.
Good tidings will be for the future.

Nine at the top means:
There is drinking of wine
In genuine confidence. No blame.
But if one wets his head,
He loses it, in truth.

“Celebration for the triumph,
Friends Gather in Collectivitiy.
But if Greed Works its will,
Pandora’s Box will Be Reopened.”

Hayward At Yacht Race

Note. The hexagram AFTER COMPLETIOIN represents a gradual transition from a time of ascent past a peak of culture to a time of standstill. The hexagram BEFORE COMPLETION represents a transition from chaos to order. This hexagram comes at the end of the Book of Changes. It points to the fact that every end contains a new beginning. Thus it gives hope to men. The Book of Changes is a book of the future.

P.S.: (OP’s notes: The Nuclear Trigrams of Wei Chi/ Before Completion, are K’an the Abysmal, Water and Li the Clinging Fire (The 63rd Hexagram Chi Chi), thus our situation comes into an infinite loop of yin and yang.

Now that I have highlighted the Hexagrams and the correlation of the Trigrams in between them that I drew up the other ones, I’m going to show the reading that I have correlated with the Deep Water Horizon Oil Disaster. I’m going to draw certain aspects of judgments and lines to pertain to this situation even though all of them do. Please feel free to add your interpretations of these Images, Judgments, and Lines.

This video is a good explanation of what was happening that caused the oil rig to sink. I organized these next verses a few days before I came across this video on Post Glacial Rebound. It seems to complement some of these verses really well.

“The wind is gently penetrating,”
(Suns Image, Attribute and Name)
“Carrying out the East’s undertakings.”
(Lis Direction and Suns Image)
“Priests and magicians used in great numbers.”
(Hexagram 57, Nine in the Second Place)
“Clinging to the light by the fire,”
(Lis Attribute, Image, and Name)
“Eyes red as the sun gets higher,”
(Lis Color, Body Part, and Suns Action in Lis Direction)
“Furthering perseverance of our warriors.”
(Hexagram 57, Six at the Beginning)

The Wind carries water from the arctic shelves and places it in the gulf.
Since we are making the reservations below the sea bed hollow, the sea bed faults shift and become weaker. Thus the wind is carrying out (from underneath) the undertakings (goals) of the east (England).

“Coming joyousness is the lake’s misfortune.”
(Suns Attribute, Tuis Image, Attribute, Hexagram 64 6 in the Third Place)
“The abysmal carries a pigs fortune.”
(K’ans Name, Animal, Hexagram 64 9 in the 4th Place)
“Danger as the water turns to black.”
(K’ans Attribute, Image, and Color)
“Success is small and end in disorder.”
(Chi Chis Judgment)
“He brakes his wheels and his tail hits the water.”
(Chi Chi Nine at the Beginning)
“At the night the fire will come back.”
(Correlation between 63 and 64)

Would be profits for BP results in misfortune for the gulf.
The abysmal (water) contains a fortune (oil) for a pig (BP).
The water turns black as oil spills into the gulf and ruining the environment.
Drilling begins well until a disaster occurs.
The rig explodes than sinks into the water.

“Before Completion, his tail hits the water.”
(64 Judgment)
“After completion is when he’ll further.”
(Correlation of 63 and 64)
“He brakes his wheel but there’s no blame.”
(63 Nine at the beginning)
“Drinking wine with no remorse.”
(64 Nine at the top)
“Confident in the growing force.”
(64 Nine at the top)
“A lightning strike ignites a flame.”
(Li clings and starts the process between 63 and 64)

BPs Oil Rig Registered With Marshall Islands

“Success is small and ends in disorder.”
(63rd Judgment)
“Yet chaos still leads to order.”
(Note 64)
“Every end has a new beginning.”
(Note 64)
“Perseverance furthers man.”
(Lesson of 63 and 64)
“The Illustrious Ancestors masters plan.”
(63 9 in the 3rd Place)
“As long as the world keeps on spinning.”

Continued in the next post.

In Conclusion,

Wind carries storms that shift the weight of waters due to the sun and actions of men. Occult and Private Interests Shadow in Secrecy around This Event. We stood in awe as we watched the rig explode, and stood in remorse as the next sunrise shined on the sea. The sea bed becomes weaker. More citizens start to take action.

This would be benefits of BP become the misfortune of the gulf. Chaos arises as the blue waters of the Gulf start turning black. The success of well lasts temporarily, the rig collapses and the oil pollutes the water, the night that the explosion occurred.

Before drilling was done the rig exploded and sunk, and after the sinking the plan will continue. The well sunk, oil pollutes and no one is convicted. They sit at home with no sympathy, confident that money will ensure their freedom and their businesses interests. Lightning delays clean up procedures.

The beginning of Deep Water Horizon is well until the rig explodes. The world keeps going down hill into chaos but a new day will dawn. Every end has a new beginning like the Calendar Cycle. Intuition will progress humanity. The Grand Architects plan will keep going as long the world keeps turning.

Notes, comments, interpretations and input welcome.

This really seems like fascinating stuff, and you've done such a great job presenting it.

I wish I had more of an understanding of it, to make a better comment.
I'm going to re-read your OP, and study it some more.

But thanks for this. Very interesting.

Hello. I just did a tarot reading for the oils spill. I am not an expert, you must take this with salt.

The tarot reading seemed to indicate generally that the situation was serious but not hopeless. There were two cards near the center card that indicated luck in some way. It was a short reading. The negative cards were present but removed by blocking cards.

I am surprised, and I am no expert. My word that this is a true tarot reading for what it is worth.

I wrote the majority of this down about an hour after Obamas address. At first it was just the final quotes before the conclusion and then I decided to post it but I figured all the lines of the Hexagrams have an interpretation to the situation at hand so I interpreted the rest and it made a whole lot more sense to it. I started elaborating last night and didn't get finished until this afternoon.

There are a lot more interpretations about this situation from these Hexagrams and I would appreciate others interpretations as well.

A lot of those Illuminati Cards pertain to the spill.

ATS Thread

The man on the backlash card looks like Obama

The man on the teflon coating looks like Tony Hayward. And both oil looks like it vaguely says BP especially on the teflon one.

Whats funny most synthetic oils have teflon in them to prevent engine wear which I thought was appropriate for that card.

For 9 at the top on 38 the opposition it says.
One sees his companion as a pig covered in dirt.

Like the backlash card portrays.

Your problem, OP, is that you're using some system that very few know or understand; therefore regardless of how accurate you've been so far it will likely persuade few. Now if you can make make some convincing analysis before it happens then you'll be onto something.

The moral of the story is simple. Are you tired, do you feel
that your leadership has failed you? If you feel this way let your voices be heard. Through your political expression or through your prayers.

If you don't want this planet to continue your voice will be heard.

Yeah you're right. Not many people know about this system. But this is for those who do and if others want to research it, they're free to do so.

I wasn't trying to predict anything. but it's common sense that the air ways are going to bring the oil onto shore, especially during hurricane season. the book just have things that represent these acts and what is going on in this disastrous situation.
