The changing lines between hexagram 1 and hexagram 36
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 #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.
Changing line #5
"The Dragon Flies through the Skies" - Destiny is a powerful force. All things are drawn to what is within their true nature. Each thing follows its own kind. Some things are just meant to be, others are not. The great dragon has achieved its rightful place.
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 #36:
"Darkening of the Light"
The meaning of hexagram #36
This hexagram symbolizes a diminishing of one's brightness and spirit. Its meaning is literally "The Wounding of the Bright." Your life may feel out of control or under a dark spell for a time. This too shall pass. A veil of untruth makes things dark, but all hope is not lost. Yield to the darkness for a time, but be cautious of it. As the light dims your inner light grows more visible. You are light. Light is love. The Sun still shines behind its veil of clouds. It is the light inside that is ultimately important. With this knowledge you can survive any darkness outside.
