The meaning of hexagram #19

The changing lines between hexagram 19 and hexagram 29

Changing line #1

"A Joint Approach"- This changing line at the base of the hexagram of "Approaching" signifies either a distant approach of two simultaneous events, or the act of approaching a great event with the company of a friend or partner. This event is still far away, but this is a very positive sign and indicates good fortune.

Changing line #5

"Advancing Wisdom"- There is anticipation towards that which approaches. But anticipation must not give way to over-eagerness or rash decisions. Wisdom must be sought out and allowed the proper time. Self-restraint must conquer self-gratification. Do not give in to anticipation. Allow events to unfold at their own pace.


The future hexagram #29:
"Pitfalls"

The meaning of hexagram #29

Dangers and challenges are indicated in this unwelcome hexagram. Faith and connection to others are your lifelines during this doubly dangerous time. Confront all dangers headfirst. Summon your strength and rise to the call. This is a time to take charge. Don't run away from yourself or your problems. To give up at this time may prove disastrous.
