The changing lines between hexagram 19 and hexagram 14

Changing line #3

"Overly Confident Approach"- While things seem to be going well on one hand they are often falling apart on another. It is important to think broadly. A change in this line near the center of this hexagram suggests that small successes have bred an overconfidence which now undermines the overall progress. Do not take things for granted.

Changing line #4

"Approaching from Above"- What approaches has been carefully foreseen and predicted. Preparations are well in place for a successful fulfillment of goals. A change in this line is a favorable indicator which suggests there will be no negative surprises. What is important has already been accounted for.

Changing line #6

"The Generous Approach"- A change in the top line of this hexagram is a positive indicator suggesting that honesty and generosity are at work. What approaches is beneficial to all. This is an extremely positive indicator. Do not allow selfishness to prevent events from unfolding positively.


The future hexagram #14:
"Plenty"

The meaning of hexagram #14

This hexagram which is literally read to mean "Fire in the Heavens" symbolizes the life-giving "Sun". The Sun is the source of all wealth and abundance and references a time of prosperity and plenty. With abundance comes the power to do great things and to create positive change. At the same time, the Sun carries a warning not to create waste, or to use this time of plenty for personal gluttony. An abundance of something is coming your way. Use it wisely. Also: Early mornings bring success.
