The changing lines between hexagram 19 and hexagram 26

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 #26:
"Great Achievements"

The meaning of hexagram #26

This vital hexagram explores the power of holding firm and standing your ground. Don't become distracted by luxury and leisure. Stay the course with courage and inner discipline. This can be a time of great gains and increased well-being, but you must keep your footing despite strong currents tugging at you. Put your ideas/projects into motion. Cross the waters without apprehension. Honor your strengths to achieve great things.
