Heaven Lake
Thunder Lake

The successive changed hexagram, #54, breaks down into a transformed upper trigram of Thunder over an untransformed lower trigram of Lake.


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 54

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.

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 #54:
"Disaffection"

The meaning of hexagram #54

This hexagram indicates growing distances from one's romantic partners or comrades. But simultaneously it shines light on the path back to romance and love: Kindness and communication. Kindness and communication are the unifying forces in the world. You will be given the opportunity to direct your affection toward someone you previously distanced yourself from, and so re-create a stronger bond with them. Another indication here is that of exclusion from a larger circle of friends -- be conscious of your connections with others at this time. Move forward with integrity and don't form relationships out of convenience or formality.
