Interpretation of the lines (divination.com):

Changing Line Interpretations

Line 1 (bottom line)

A changing first line indicates a time when good fortune follows a sudden change that first may have seemed unfortunate. If we remain open to all possibilities in a time of crisis, the results can be shockingly positive.

Line 2

When chaotic events strip you of what is rightfully yours, it is of no use to fight it while the storm is raging. Retire to the mountaintop for now: take the high ground. In the end, after the storm has passed, this strategy will result in a restoration of all that is yours without need for contention. On the other hand, confronting uncontrollable forces when they are at their peak only brings further misfortune and loss.

Line 3

The shock of unexpected change can be almost paralyzing. At such a time, your concentration is easily scattered. This is not the time to stand back and watch things take their course. Focus is needed. Begin with small details, and gradually reestablish normalcy all around. The resumption of habits and routines can protect you and keep external misfortunes from infecting your soul. If you allow a jarring situation to motivate you to restore your focus, you will be freed of possible ill effects. This is good.

Line 4

A nimble mind evades on-rushing fate like a matador twirls away from a charging bull. But even a nimble mind can become mired in muddled or jarring circumstances. Sometimes when you are stuck, you become a target for the horns of fate. If you had a clear problem, you could do something about it. But for now, don’t force anything — just try to keep your wits about you.

Line 5

A series of repetitious shocks is indicated. It is possible to avoid danger by remaining calm and staying near the center of the storm, instead of dashing toward the extremities, where added movement would only increase the risk of harm. Keep still as best you can.

Line 6 (top line)

When startling events are at their peak, clarity of vision and perspective can be lost. The smart move, in such a situation, is to withdraw long enough to gain time, in order to develop a coherent strategy. This can only be done if your withdrawal comes soon enough, before turmoil has confused your perspective. Friends and associates may not understand the reason for your actions, and they may talk behind your back, but no good general ever plotted his strategy while mounted on his horse.
Sometimes retreating to your tent takes more strength and courage than charging the front lines — and more brains too.
