The changing lines between hexagram 19 and hexagram 34

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.


The future hexagram #34:
"Great Power"

The meaning of hexagram #34

As if thunder and lightning are your allies, this hexagram implies great strength. This is a time to summon your determination and feel your own fortitude. Trust your momentum and your reputation will grow. Pay attention to details and follow through with your intentions, projects and ideas. New allies will surface as you extend your influence into uncharted lands. Helpful solutions will come to you. Let your vision and higher purpose be your compass.
