The changing lines between hexagram 1 and hexagram 40

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 #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.

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 #40:
"Deliverance"

The meaning of hexagram #40

"Freedom from hardship" is the meaning of this welcome hexagram. Some challenges will still lie ahead, but the stage has been set for success. You have disentangled yourself from opposing forces. Your projects, ideas and dreams are destined to come to fruition. This is a time to rally your support base, and clear the air of any tensions and grievances. This is a time to forgive and forget. Let worries wash away like water.
