I Ching: Hexagram 51 (Chên)

above CHêN THE AROUSING, THUNDER
below CHêN THE AROUSING, THUNDER


The hexagram Chên represents the eldest son, who seizes rule with energy and power. A yang line develops below two yin lines and presses upward forcibly. This movement is so violent that it arouses terror. It is symbolized by thunder, which bursts forth from the earth and by its shock causes fear and trembling.
