The changing lines between hexagram 19 and hexagram 22
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 #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 #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 #22:
The meaning of hexagram #22
Like a sacred fire lighting up the night sky, this hexagram is about the beauty of form - the grace of the material world. When something is pleasing to the eye, it can fuel success and happiness. This is a favorable time to begin something new, alter one's wardrobe or redecorate. Adornment brings confidence and freedom. Enjoy the shifting appearances, but don't over indulge in them or they will distract you from true value.
