The changing lines between hexagram 1 and hexagram 49

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 #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 #49:
"Transformation"

The meaning of hexagram #49

This hexagram implies a time of great change. It is important to remember that there will be no mistakes made at this time. Change is what happens -- not just what is intended. This is a time of shedding the old and seeing with fresh eyes. A geographic move may be referenced here. This could also be a time of new employment, new understandings or new solutions. You may find yourself undergoing an inner transformation, where you de-throne old attitudes that no longer serve your vision. Let events happen. Change will wash over you like water.
