The starting hexagram #1:
"Creativity (Heaven)"

The meaning of hexagram #1

Heaven signifies the ultimate creative force. This hexagram formed of six unbroken lines signifies the purest form of power and positive energy. An expression of pure truth and strength that exceeds all worldly, physical or immediate concerns. A time of profound thought and conscious creation.


The changing lines between hexagram 1 and hexagram 39

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 #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 #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 #39:
"Obstruction"

The meaning of hexagram #39

This foreboding hexagram is a telltale sign of great difficulty and adversity. This is a time to seek guidance and counsel from a wise person, an elder or an entire team. Remember, asking for help is a sign of strength not weakness. This may be a time to seek support and break free of isolation. Perseverance brings good fortune. Stay put for a while if you think it wise. Though you may be stopped in your path on an outer level, let your inner purpose stay true to its course.
