I have been pondering a lot on this topic. So far, it seems to me that 20.4 is about relationships in general. If I remember the CD correctly, "man" refers to men and women, only if the interpretation explicitely says "woman" then it refers to women only. So 55.5 "He gathers around him brilliant men" may also mean "He/She gathers around him brilliant men/women". If you place this hexagram in your relationship area of your office then it should have an effect on your business relationships, if you place it in your relationship area of your bedroom, then it should have an impact on your private relationships.
55.1 might be a good idea as well, depending on what you want to achieve: "He meets his mate who is very much like him".
I think this is a very interesting topic, I hope others will also share their ideas.
If you try out a hexagramm for 9 weeks and you don't like the results then you can still place a different one. But maybe you'll get some other opinions which will suit your purposes better...
