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 #41:
"Decrease"

The meaning of hexagram #41

Like a wooden foundation that has become weak and flimsy, this hexagram signifies a time of instability. Be careful, this could be a time of decreased prosperity. If handled wisely however, the future may hold a simple redistribution of funds. Simplicity and integrity are the keys here. If you reduce your goals, others will support your efforts. Reducing your immediate expectations may be a necessary step toward your greater dreams and aspirations. This is not a time to panic. It is a time to value simplicity and enjoy the natural world.
