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 59

Changing line #1

"Conduct as Usual"- A change in this line at the base of this hexagram is an indication that the best course of action at this time is the course which is most typically followed. While there are unknowns in the present situation, a familiarity with the tried and true looks especially helpful at this time.

Changing line #4

"Apprehension and Caution"- When the possibilities of failure exist on all sides, the wise man or woman moves cautiously. An intense focus is required on events all around oneself, but at the same time an inner focus is required to control ones' path. Forward motion is the result of careful meditation. Ahead there is success.

The future hexagram #59:

The meaning of hexagram #59

This powerful hexagram indicates a dispersal of people and ideas. In the same way that wind skims across a watery surface, sending thousands of ripples in its path, this hexagram signifies a time of many small changes. Old partnerships dissolve, friends move or money seems to get away from you for a time. Don't be concerned. The wise person knows that a period of dispersion inevitably gives rise to the return of another cycle of positive growth. This hexagram may also reference friends or family who move away.
