So I consulted the I Ching, ancient Chinese Oracle...

Hexagram 12, "Stagnation"

Changing Line Interpretations

Line 1 (bottom line)
Inferior forces are advancing, so it is best to reduce your visibility. Others of like mind may follow you into a temporary shelter from events; it is through this means that plans can be made for future action.
Line 2
When events have reached a standstill because of the corrupt influence of inferior people, the wise endure the period of stagnation, and accept suffering willingly in order to preserve their integrity. Avoid submission to inducements that do not serve your long-term interests or violate your value system.
Line 3
Lesser people who have usurped power improperly eventually realize that they are not equal to the task they took upon themselves. When this occurs, a sense of shame overcomes them, and though they may not admit it, they know that they have committed a serious miscalculation. After this point, events may soon take a turn in your favor. Observe your adversaries closely, for their inner feelings may hold the key to future changes.
