New Literary Clue-June 18th - Solved

From the Illustrated I Ching:

30
SYNERGY

"Synergy. There is an advantage in correct persistence that results in progress. Caring for the docile cow brings good fortune.

Intelligence (fire) shines twice forming the condition for Synergy. An enlightened person, therefore, perpetuates the cultivation of intelligence until it illuminates the four quarters of the earth."

Translated by R.L. Wing


Well here we go again everybody.
I wish you all luck.
Have fun, and to any Dads, Happy Father's Day!

Edited to add:
I read the entire explanation provided by R.L. Wing under the hexagram text, and it influenced my choice. Many cards will fit this hexagram, but I chose the most synergistic one, in my opinion anyway!

Hi Elf ~

Are we choosing Tarot cards?

MG 


Satori  18 Jun 2004 
yes, you post your choice that best fits the clue.
Listen to me, the expert after just being new to this game a week ago!

Welcome to the game Moongold! Hope you get it! 


Moongold  18 Jun 2004 
Ah..... I love these games! They are good tests of calm and patience :D

Now it may depend on which deck. I'm not sure of the rules so you can perhaps offer me some latitude?

If it is the Tarot of Prague ~ 4 Pentacles?

If it is the RWS 7 Pentacles?

But it could be XXI World

Mmmmmm..........? 


Satori  18 Jun 2004 
4 Pentacles
7 Pentacles
XXI World

All really great ideas for this hexagram. None of which is the answer, sorry my friend.

The World was one of my top choices for this hexagram, you know the four quarters reference. And then I thought of what I finally settled on and while it isn't blatantly obvious, it fits.

Have another go and I'll check in when I can.

Best of luck, mates!
G'day
(Love that)

hmmmmmm, guess I have to at least START with

The Heirophant?? 


MattDouglas  18 Jun 2004 
Sounds like the King of Pentacles to me.

Body of the spirit. He sits on his throne sated, but cultivating the entire kingdom. 


Moongold  18 Jun 2004 
Ah....... 3 Wands?

Three Wands is about quiet persistence, and the character looks out towards all corners of the World. In Tarot of Prague, the figure stands before a docile cow!

Just popping in, How about the Magician using the 4 elements. 


Dakota  19 Jun 2004 
ooooooo, Moongold, I was thinking about the 3 of Wands too! Well, how about Temperance, for balanced emotions and energy, without which one cannot cultivate intelligence.........

:D

That silly ol' Elf must be busy celebrating those birthdays and anniversary! (Dakota taps her foot impatiently.........) 


Satori  19 Jun 2004 
4 Pentacles
7 Pentacles
XXI World



Whoooaaaa Nellie!

Okay, very nice to see such eagerness!
Sorry to say that-

Hierophant
King of Pentacles
3 of Wands
Magician
Temperance

were not my choices!

And I must admit, Moongold gets extra points for the docile cow! IGNORE THE COW! The cow does not come into play, and I apoloigze for not saying that earlier! However docility can come into play with the energy of the card.....

Yikes. What a group.

Sorry jmd, not it.
A clue from the text of R. L. Wing:

"When two elements approach each other in such a way that the scope of what they can achieve far surpasses the total of what they could achieve separately, they are acting with Synergy."

Alright then.
Have at it.

(edited for spelling) 


OakDragon  19 Jun 2004 
5 of Wands? 


jmd  19 Jun 2004 
VII Chariot ? 


Satori  19 Jun 2004 
4 Pentacles
7 Pentacles
XXI World
Hierophant
King of Pentacles
3 of Wands
Magician
Temperance

"When two elements approach each other in such a way that the scope of what they can achieve far surpasses the total of what they could achieve separately, they are acting with Synergy."

5 of Wands
Chariot

Neither 5 of Wands nor Chariot is what I am thinking about.

Think about the approach........

Lovers ?

Go Lionette! Great Job!

Lovers have lots of Synergy right?
And two people in love can create Synergy in others too!

Also, Lovers can create Life, although life can be created without Lovers, ie implantation......

But anyway....yes the Lovers.

Good for you! 


lionette  19 Jun 2004 
Ohmigosh!!
:) I haven't guessed right in awhile, so am surprised!

Now, off to find a good clue! 


lionette  19 Jun 2004 
elf,

By the way, I've been interested in I-Ching lately and I like that hexagram description alot. Will look up book details to read more.

:) Good quote choice! 


Dakota  19 Jun 2004 
GOOD ONE, LIONETTE!!! You rock!

:D
