Heaven Lake
Lake Heaven

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

The successive changed hexagram, #43, is composed of a transformed upper trigram of Lake 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.


The changing lines between hexagram 10 and hexagram 43

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 #6

"Look to Your Conduct"- A change in this line at the top of the hexagram is simply a reminder that the ends do not justify the means. One's overall conduct throughout a process is extremely important. Victory is achievable. But a higher level of victory is the one in which the whole process has been conducted with honor.


The future hexagram #43:
"Breaking Through"

The meaning of hexagram #43

Pressure has been building for some time. Now, like water cracking and bursting through a dam, old restraints are being broken. The river overflows the dam. The truthful finally cast aside the untrue. Tension gives way to motion. Powerful action has been a long time coming. The influences of those who are beneath you suddenly mean very little. A cloudburst. The months of April and May may have special significance to this hexagram.
