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 #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 meaning of hexagram #58
This hexagram suggests fortunate times ahead. Like water smiling up at the Heavens, expect to feel grateful for the joy of life itself. This is a time when you can easily foster the qualities of unwavering friendliness, peace and loyalty. Only through true joy -- the kind that does not depend on outward circumstances -- will you find success. Focus on the overall joy of your journey despite everyday ups and downs. True joy rests on firmness and strength within. It requires a gentleness and faith. Share wisdom and understanding with your friends. Remember that joy isn't something you find. It's something you create.
