Heaven Lake
Heaven Heaven

The beginning hexagram #10 deconstructs into the upper trigram of Heaven positioned above the lower trigram of Lake.

The second changed hexagram, #1, can be broken down into an untransformed upper trigram of Heaven positioned above a transformed lower trigram of Heaven.


The starting hexagram #10:
"Steps"

The meaning of hexagram #10

This simple looking hexagram relates to circumstances which might be inherently risky. In most cases treading in dangerous places is inadvisable. At this time however, there is very little danger. It is written in the ancient Book of Changes that "One steps on the tail of a tiger at his or her own risk" but the appearance of this hexagram suggests that right now such an act would be ignored (or even seen as playful). A more general reference here could be a mingling of people belonging to different social backgrounds. This sign is typically positive.

Changing line #3

"A One Eyed Man Still Sees"- This changing line near the middle of the hexagram is a reminder that the capacity to do something adequately is very different from the capacity to succeed at doing something well. If we attempt to do something when our abilities are not at their peak, we flirt with disaster at this time.


The future 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.
