The changing lines between hexagram 19 and hexagram 21

Changing line #2

"A Unified Success"- This changing line (similar to the bottom line of this hexagram) indicates the approach of two people or things. An event or place may be approached together with the company of a friend or partner. This event is advantageous to both parties. Or if two events approach, both are successful.

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 #21:
"Jaws"

The meaning of hexagram #21

This hexagram which is formed of the two powerful trigrams "Fire" and "Thunder" suggests something that is caught between two powerful forces. When that thing which is caught between the two forces is "chewed up", a positive union of two powerful forces will occur. There may be something that stands between you and your goal. It will not vanish by itself -- instead it will take constant and repeated pressure to remove this obstacle. This hexagram may also symbolize a lawsuit, legal action or legal penalties.
