Earth Lake
Thunder Mountain

The secondary changed hexagram, #62, can be broken down into a new, changed upper trigram of Thunder above a new, changed lower trigram of Mountain.


The starting hexagram #19:
"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 62

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 #2

"A Unified Success"- This changing line (similar to the bottom line of this hexagram) indicates the approach of two people or things. An event or place may be approached together with the company of a friend or partner. This event is advantageous to both parties. Or if two events approach, both are successful.

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 #62:
"Smallness"

The meaning of hexagram #62

This hexagram signifies the power of incremental movements and simplicity. Challenges can be overcome by paying great attention to the tiniest details. Reach for the stars, but don't fly too high all at once. This is a time to contemplate things at a smaller scale. Too often we forget the smaller things -- the compliment, the friendly action -- these are more important than ever at this time. There is also a warning carried in this hexagram: That a small detail may have been overlooked, or that the greater whole may be affected dramatically by something small and ignored.
