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 47

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 #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 #47:
"Exhaustion"

The meaning of hexagram #47

Oppression and feelings of constraint are the qualities embodied by this foreboding hexagram. This is a time when you may not be taken seriously and may grow weary of such treatment. Others may try to smother you or keep you trapped into playing an old role. It is a time of oppression. But fear not. The challenges will make you a better person. By accessing an inner sense of stability it is possible to stay cheerful in these trying times, and you will then tap into an inner sense of boundless energy. You don't need many words at this time. Honor the silent knowing deep within and you will come through with renewed vigor.
