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 #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.
The future hexagram #38:
The meaning of hexagram #38
This hexagram implies a draw, an impasse or a stalemate. Like water and fire coming together, opposing forces bring activity to a standstill. The opposing forces you encounter may be the actions or opinions of others, or they may be one's own. An internal struggle may have brought you to a point where movement is impossible. This is a time to identify a higher vision for yourself. Look to see who shares your vision and who does not, who is in alignment with your cause and who is not. This is an opportunity to evaluate and decide on directions for future movement. The first step in dealing with opposition is identifying it.
