39 蹇 Chien
Limping–Obstruction Afoot–Water Over Mountain
A hobbled shuffle makes slow progress. Acting in a lame and faltering way causes difficulty. You walk the path blindfolded. Lameness is also a weakness of the body over the mind. The lame duck is an unsuccessful person who will eventually be supplanted by someone or something more efficient. Weak actions produce fruitless results. Tread lightly in your impaired condition. The direction of your dealings will bring misfortune.
