The changing lines between hexagram 1 and hexagram 31
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 #6
"Great Boundaries are Broken" - In this line we see the great dragon (a powerful and epic force for energy and creation) going too far. There is a difference between what can be achieved and what should be achieved. Excesses are referenced here. Some lines should not be crossed.
The future hexagram #31:
The meaning of hexagram #31
We are all interconnected and we all affect each other's lives. This hexagram symbolizes the power each of us has to support one another, change and charm one another. This is a time to cooperate and connect. The deeper and broader meaning of relationships comes into play as one explores the ways that friends and lovers change each other. This will be a time when you easily bring someone new into your life. You can understand your lover/partner/co-worker by studying them and their movements. Win their approval with your loyalty and steadfast vision.
