Heaven Lake
Fire 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.


The changing lines between hexagram 10 and hexagram 14

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.

Changing line #5

"Determination in the Face of Danger"- The brave individual does not ignore danger, and move forward fearlessly. The brave individual is intensely aware of the danger and the fear and presses forward despite them. Character is the measure of awareness and action. To ignore danger is to fail. To allow danger to overcome one is to fail. Awareness is truth.


The future hexagram #14:
"Plenty"

The meaning of hexagram #14

This hexagram which is literally read to mean "Fire in the Heavens" symbolizes the life-giving "Sun". The Sun is the source of all wealth and abundance and references a time of prosperity and plenty. With abundance comes the power to do great things and to create positive change. At the same time, the Sun carries a warning not to create waste, or to use this time of plenty for personal gluttony. An abundance of something is coming your way. Use it wisely. Also: Early mornings bring success.
