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 30
Changing line #2
"Perseverance of the Solitary Soul"- The path is long and difficult. A change in this line indicates that one who is removed from daily interaction, and quietly focuses on the task at hand will be successful. Being true to oneself is indicated here, along with a warning not to be distracted by social pressure.
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 #30:
The meaning of hexagram #30
This hexagram is a sign of good things. The path is clear and success is yours. A sense of inner radiance is the source of this good news. From a bright inner nature stem wondrous outer circumstances in your life. The brightness lights up the night sky like a sacred flame. Stay aware of your purpose. You will make great strides toward your goals. Take new actions. Health and prosperity are indicated here.
