19 臨Approach
 
A pond lies beneath the earth.
Those in leadership positions must be willing to openly approach their people. They must be collaborative, protective, and strive to educate the followers.
This hexagram is linked to the Lunar month of December (January – February), when after the solstice, light begins to ascend again.  Spring is approaching.
 
With this hexagram, success is certain. But one must work with determination and perseverance to make full use of the propitiousness of time – because spring is not everlasting.
