a yellow circle, indicating this line as the governing ruler of the hexagram Nine in the fifth place means:

The great man changes like a tiger.
Even before he questions the oracle
He is believed.


A tigerskin, with its highly visible black stripes on a yellow ground, shows its distinct pattern from afar. It is the same with a revolution brought about by a great man: large, clear guiding lines become visible, understandable to everyone. Therefore he need not first consult the oracle, for he wins the spontaneous support of the people.
