35:  PROCEED FORWARD

It is suggested that this time holds the potential for great strength, progress, and the contribution of one’s talent to society.  But it requires that one’s motivation is pure.  It is recommended that if situations arise that are not smooth, it is important to remain steadfast and upright and to  “hold to the Principle of the Golden Mean”.  If one holds to highest principles of virtue and goodness, people will lend support.  But if one is too firm in character, this may lead to difficulty in dealing with people.  And, if one is not firm enough, one may find it  difficult to deal with the current course of life.  Proceeding should be stable, gradual, and steady.  

WARNING:  There is suggestion of the presence of a tyrant (likened to “a rat”), which leads to humiliation and adversity this year.

There is one in an official position, close to the President, who is not qualified for his position.  And, he proceeds forward “like a rat.  The nature of the rat is to act without a goal and to be greedy.  One in this place needs self-knowledge.”  If he continues “like a rat” without virtuousness, even if he is steadfast, this will bring evil.  Message:  “One should not act without a goal, or be greedy, especially in high position.”
