The changing lines between hexagram 1 and hexagram 20
Changing line #1
"Hidden Dragon. Do Not Act" - Have patience. There is a time for action and a time for mature patience. Now is a time for a cautious pause. Time holds answers for those who would wait for them.
Changing line #2
"A Dragon Appears in the Field" - Greatness and prominence are different things. One can be great long before one achieves success. A seriousness and intensity of purpose mark one destined for great things. True greatness is shown by example.
Changing line #3
"Vigilance all Day, Apprehension by Night" - A constant defence of ones principles is needed. Creation requires constant effort and a wellspring of energy. Be cautious of forces that would lead astray or take advantage of a lapse in focus.
Changing line #4
"The Dragon Soars up from the Depths" - Choices are at hand that will have profound effects on future direction. Remember that neither choice is right or wrong. They are simply reflections of your true self. Reflect not on the question, but on the path to which you belong.
The future hexagram #20:
The meaning of hexagram #20
The meaning of this hexagram is meditation and contemplation, but the visual significance is that of a tower with a broad view which enables one to meditate on the wider landscape rather than immediate events. An additional meaning of this tower is that the tower itself can be seen for many miles, suggesting "an example" being set for others. This is a time to reflect carefully on what has gone before, and what is happening now in a broader sense. Decisions made at this time will be witnessed by many.
