"Approaching"

The meaning of hexagram #19

This hexagram references the positive concepts of anticipation and expectation. A time of growing power and energies which have not yet revealed themselves. Diligence and focus must be at maximal levels because a time of great flourishing is near. The period of late winter (just prior to the springtime) is also referenced here.


The changing lines between hexagram 19 and hexagram 60

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 #60:
"Limitation"

The meaning of hexagram #60

This hexagram is a reminder of boundaries and edges. It implies containment and conservation of funds and energies. Financially, this is a time to tighten your belt. Health wise, this is a time to respect the limits of health and safety. Romance wise, this is a time to recognize the boundaries and limits that others set. Discover your line in the sand. Be conservative in your affairs and the doors to success will stay open. Just as the shore gives shape to a lake, so also do limits and boundaries give shape to your life. Know these lines, and what is within them will grow in power and meaning.
